We believe that wellness is the natural state. It requires balance of body, mind and spirit. We believe that each of us has the innate wisdom and healing resources to function optimally. We believe that when life circumstances create imbalance or illness, we can heal ourselves. Our mission at MindSpa is to empower people to take control of their health in order to live life to the fullest. To accomplish this mission, we have assembled a team of talented practitioners who share this vision and have the collective expertise to offer professional care and support. With an integrative approach we achieve positive results!
I created MindSpa in 2004 with an idea inspired by my years of experience with a brain-based approach to treatment. I learned that there are many windows through which we can view the human condition. I learned the importance of treating the brain, heart, and gut to produce mind, body, and spirit wellness. I envisioned creating a place where people can receive expert clinical service and also enjoy spa-like options to maintain wellness. I knew that to make this happen I would need to attract talented and competent practitioners who share these beliefs and who could work together as an integrative whole. I knew it would be important to provide a safe healing environment. And I knew it would be important to stay at the forefront of health related technology, while respecting time-honored practices. I am proud to say this vision has been realized and continues to evolve. I invite you to let us be a part of your healing journey.
