The Benefits of Integrative Wellness

Our physical health does not exist in a bubble. The mind, body, spirit connection is the trifecta of overall wellbeing and optimal health.

In modern day life we are so scheduled and so rushed all of the time with appointments, social engagements, work, school, family, friends, we barely have time to sleep let alone consider self-care as anything more than a luxury.

This is problematic thinking.

Somehow taking the time to take care of ourselves has been labeled as selfish. The truth of the matter is that if you do not take care of yourself and put yourself first, at least once in a while, you will eventually get worn down. At that point, you are no good to not only yourself but to anyone else either. In that worn out mode, you can become depressed, too exhausted to cope with daily life, or even physically ill. In any of these scenarios, it becomes even more difficult to continue the level of support you give to others.

Taking the time to care for yourself on a deep spiritual, emotional, and physical is necessary for your continued health, quality of life and longevity. It has been proven time and time again through neuroscientific studies that the brain is ever changing and can rewire itself back to optimal function when given the chance to relax, unwind, be at peace and actually heal.

In light of this, Monarch Wellness has chosen to offer several neuro-friendly integrative services to help you develop an ongoing state of tranquil mindfulness.

Some of our modalities which incorporate the whole brain and neurological system include:

  • Sand Tray Therapy (the right creative brain is engaged during the building phase, and the left brain is integrated through storytelling as the builder translates the tray into verbal language to make sense of it)
  • Play Therapy (integrates both the creative (right) and thinking (left) parts of the brain)
  • Restorative Sound (the vibrations move through and around the body in a circular motion, creating a dance of right and left brain integration, and balancing out the complete nervous system)
  • Yoga and Laughter Yoga (by definition, yoga means union in that it unites mind-body-soul, person-larger purpose, and unlimited other interpretations of union through the integration of movement and inner reflection)

 

While it may feel selfish at first to take the time out of your busy week to attend self-growth related classes, you will soon come to realize that by doing so what you are offering those around you is incredibly valuable – a new more energized refreshed happier version of you.

The #1 thing you can do for your health

With so many fads and trends that come and go in the health and wellness industry, one time-tested proven fact holds true. Stress can make you physically ill. According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 75% of all health problems brought to doctors is Emotional Stress-Related


We all have stress. Stress (a certain level of pressure) can be healthy and motivational. It can propel us towards being deadline oriented, organized and successful. But when stressors are too numerous and come at you from too many directions at once you can start to feel overwhelmed. That sense of being overwhelmed can lead to feeling less than capable of handling your own life or career. That, in turn, can lead to higher levels or stress and even into depression with accompanying issues like insomnia, improper diet, and lack of self-care.

Operating at these constantly high level isn’t normal despite the picture today’s society presents and it isn’t healthy. Constant pressure can lead to anxiety and fatigue as your body is tricked into feeling as if you are in an ongoing “fight or flight” scenario. This wears on your hormones, your endocrine system and can lead to adrenal issues.

The mind, body, spirit connection is the trifecta of health. To attain truly wonderful vibrant health, you must work on all three.

The How: It may sound overly simplified:

Cut Stress – We do know that it is easier said than done, but taking small steps to cut down on, if not eliminate altogether things, situations, people and places that stress you out is well worth the effort. The only constant in life is change.

– If you do not enjoy your job – work on finding a different one.

– If you have toxic people in your life, work on spending less time focusing on them, and cut them out entirely if possible.

– If bills are piling up – work on a budget and paying off debt.

– Don’t love where you live? – work on a plan to move.


Whatever it is that is stressing you out, there is always some kind of a solution or way to modify. Monarch wellness offers classes, therapeutic services focused on resolving emotional concerns, as well as preventative stress management for optimal health and well-being.
