"True health is much more than the absence of disease. Health in its essence is an expanded & deepened state of consciousness. This state of wholeness is the basis of all healing."
MY HEALING ART PRACTICE
Holistic Health Offerings
Required for New Patients
A truly holistic approach to medicine is treating each individual as a whole and not just treating the symptom or disease process. Yes, we can treat your headache or any other symptom you may have but we also want to look at any internal (biochemical/nutrient) deficiencies or external environmental toxins and any emotional/mental behaviors and beliefs that may be blocking you from getting well and returning to an optimal state of health and wellbeing. Dr. Lenahan will listen to when your health challenge began, what you've tried and what has not worked, walk with you through your daily routine from waking up to going to bed to discover any underlying habits that may be contributing to your symptoms. Perform Pulse & Tongue diagnosis to discover what your underlying imbalance is according to Chinese Medicine and a brief Structural Analysis to see if any organs or glands are being affected by your posture.
Work with Dr. J Star Hawk to create a transformational healing experience for yourself! This intuitive healing can include acupuncture, pranic & theta healing, visionary cranial sacral, shamanic sound healing, breathwork, chakra balancing, meditation & transformational coaching!
Nutritional Response Testing (NRT) is similar to the practices of applied kinesiology or neuromuscular testing. It is a technique based upon listening to the bodies innate intelligence by measuring the strength of the nervous system's response to palpation and any object that is placed upon the body. By testing the strength of the deltoid muscle that is innervated by the brachial plexus nerve, an experienced practitioner can determine whether there is a neurologic "lock" (a "yes") within the nervous system or a weakness (a "no"). First, the patient's body is scanned by palpating points on the body that relate to either the musculoskeletal system, a gland or the internal organs. Once a weakness in the patient's body is determined, a homeopathic stressor kit that contains vials for food sensitivities, heavy metals, chemicals, viruses, fungal/mold, bacteria and parasites will be used to discover what is causing the dysfunction in that particular part of the body. After the stressors have been identified, nutritional supplements & herbal medicines will be prescribed as well as any dietary recommendations.
Acupuncture is a healing practice used for thousands of years. By consciously inserting and manipulating fine needles into specific energetic centers or points on the body, Acupuncture has been clinically proven to relieve pain, promote blood circulation and alleviate stress. Acupuncture aims to promote health and healing by restoring and enhancing the function of the body's natural processes. By recharging the energetic currants i.e. electromagnetic force within the body, the nervous system and consequently all other bodily systems are able to function more efficiently and effectively.
Over the years I have had many clients who have traveled to the world's most renown spa's and healing centers and they have told me that their massage experience was one of the most profound and deeply healing sessions they have ever had. I invite you to also experience one of the best massages you'll ever have, which includes: a 75min full body massage with warm coconut oil, aromatherapy, acu/marma/chakra energy point activation and visionary cranial sacral healing. This synergistic & ritualistic massage draws upon Ayurvedic and Hawaiian Temple lomi lomi traditions.
Within each one of us there is a center that is whole, complete and one with Spirit. This center is the source of all Life, everything in Existence and Love beyond imagination. Shamanic Sound Healing creates Sacred Space, calls upon the primordial spirits of the Universe and this spiritual center within us to transform physical, mental, emotional and energetic toxins with the primordial sound vibrations of rattles, drums, flute, singing bowls & wind gong. After cleansing each layer of the human being we call upon Pure Light to nourish and rejuvenate our body, mind and spirit.
Using guided color imagery, vibrational sound mantra, affirmations and energetic touch for each of the 7 Chakras, patients are able to restore balance both within their energy centers and the energy field outside their body.
Meditation is the practice of developing an awareness of the sensations and emotions within your body, the thoughts within your mind and the flow of energy within your consciousness. As your awareness expands and connects to the source of its spirit, it activates the natural healing processes in each patient's body to restore their physical and emotional well-being. Breathwork or Pranyama as it is known in Yogic Traditions helps to open the energy centers and channels within the body and helps to clear out any physical, mental and emotional toxins stored there. As a practitioner of meditation, breathwork and energy medicine, I help guide patients through this journey of self-discovery.
Dr. Jonathan Lenahan first started his yoga journey in 2010 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Practicing yoga showed him a way of being in tune with the body and mind that no other physical exercise had done before, and he was inspired by how yoga helped him see the creative forces behind all life. In 2013 he received his 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teaching Certification from Happy-U Namaste Yoga Center in Ocean Beach, California. Drawing upon his background in Tae-Kwon Do, Surfing, Tai Chi, Nature Awareness Skills, Massage Therapy and Chinese Medicine, Jonathan’s classes are centered towards elevating the awareness of his students and expanding their experience of energy, space and time for optimal self-healing and relaxation.
