Headwaters is committed to utilizing evidence-based programs that take a holistic approach to treatment. By incorporating aspects of alternative healing as helpful adjuncts to our state-of-the-art, scientific approach to highly affluent professionals, professional athletes, entertainers, actors, politicians and other influential individuals in the public eye and their families, our discerning patients have access to many unique options designed to help them rest and reflect during the time of healing and recovery.
The Headwaters collaborative approach to total healing of a patient’s body, mind and spirit begins with intense listening to that individual’s personal account of the specific challenges of his or her high-pressure lifestyle. We’ll talk in depth with you about your typical day, from sunrise to bedtime, including potential triggers of stress-related responses that may have become so routine and habitual you don’t notice the effect they have taken on your physical, emotional and spiritual health.
We’ll talk with you about any holistic practices you may have tried in the past to help identify what worked and what didn’t. Together, we may uncover unknown biases or resistance to practices you may have heard of but were reluctant to try, perhaps because you were not wholly familiar with the history or purpose of the approach. Whatever questions or concerns you have about the specific goals and implementation of each holistic practice, we’ll address up front so that you have the answers you deserve to make informed decisions about your care.
Together, with your Headwaters clinical therapists and medical team members, we’ll assemble a plan of time-tested practices that will complement your personal goals and lifestyle. Upon discharge from Headwaters, you’ll have a virtual toolbox full of holistic services you can utilize at any time to support and enhance your long-term recovery.
Some of the holistic services that Headwaters offers our discerning patients include:
The soft tissue of the body is manipulated to help manage specific health conditions. HeadWaters offers several massage techniques designed to enhance wellness, reduce pain and promote relaxation that include deep tissue and corrective therapy, neuromuscular, Swedish, Swedish firm, sports massage, and geriatric massage.
Pressure is applied to specific points on the feet that are directly aligned with the body’s organs and systems to promote healing, relaxation and stress reduction.
Performed on the head and neck, CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body. Using a soft touch generally no greater than the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system.
Trained practitioners of this traditional Chinese medicine technique stimulate specific points on the body associated with healing by inserting thin needles through the skin.
Practitioners use their fingertips to apply direct pressure along specific points on the body to help accentuate healthy circulation as well as muscular relaxation.
An ancient form of alternative medicine we offer is cupping therapy in which a therapist puts special cups on the back for a few minutes at a time to create suction. It can help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Ear Seeding involves mapping specific points on the outer ear. The points correspond to major organs, physiological functions, and symptoms, similar to the hands and feet in reflexology. The outer ear is treated using ear seeds rather than traditional needles by an acupuncture physician. Their size optimizes stimulation and pressurization of ear points, thereby relaxing the brain’s reflex centers.
By focusing the attention of the mind through both silent reflection as well as guided visualizations, physical relaxation, stress reduction, and emotional well-being are enhanced as the mental state is calmed.
Intentionally controlling the rate of inhalation and exhalation, as well as force and pattern through counting or emphasis can be an effective adjunct to relaxation.
A centuries-old form of exercise dating back to Northern India, Headwaters’ expert yoga instructors provide one-on-one sessions identifying specific poses to enhance your flexibility, balance, endurance, and strength.
Exercises and movement activities are performed in warm water with trained instructors to assist in the rehabilitation and recovery of both neurologic and musculoskeletal conditions.
Improve your athletic skills, strength, and cardio endurance while learning from professional personal trainers who listen to your specific fitness challenges and goals.
