"The cello sessions challenge and inspire me, and brings me to new levels in my healership."
Elizabeth Byrd and I have been working together with clients at the Center for Health and Healing for the past 2 years. Our center is one of the first integrative medical centers in the United States that is affiliated with a major teaching Hospital. The Center for Health and Healing offers a full range of services including integrative approaches to internal medicine, gynecology, pediatrics as well as traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, homeopathy, nutrition, chiropractic and cranial sacral therapy, and mind-body medicine.
I am one of the first chiropractors to be credentialed by a major teaching hospital. Our Center is committed to bringing forth the best integrative healing arts.
My work with Liz Byrd has been an amazing facet of my work at the Center. Combining chiropractic and cranial sacral therapy with the cello, we create a sacred space for patients to access profound parts of themselves and a deep source of healing. Sometimes the sessions are more anatomically oriented, perhaps focusing on an old injury, bone degeneration, or muscle injury. Some sessions seem to facilitate emotional well-being and deep relaxation. Most sessions weave together a mix of both.
