Entering the treatment space is similar to entering a martial arts dojo and an old growth forest.
In a dojo, we enter with reverence and respect.
We leave our prejudices and preconceived notions outside.
When we are open to possibility, nothing is impossible.
Trust, integrity, and curiosity are values that are held in highest regard.
We operate from Precautionary Principle – we protect the most vulnerable among us.*
Each time we enter a dojo, we agree to leave the outside world behind.
In the treatment space, we do the same:
Each time we enter, we leave the outside world behind. We invite you to do the same. This is your time, a time for healing. And you are the healer.
It’s how we enter an old growth forest.
We allow the sounds, peace and beauty to work on us. To infuse us with vitality, to refresh us, replenish us. We take this time for ourselves. We take this time to experience true healing.
We invite you to leave a fixed mindset at the door:
Please silence your cell phone and leave religion and politics at the door. We are here to discuss you and your wellness goals.
We welcome you with a growth mindset of unlimited possibility. This is your time. Welcome.
