You decide what is the best fit for your needs. If you are just seeking acupuncture treatment, then Kevin will be happy to work with you to achieve your health goals. If you are in need of a health retreat or are looking for a more in depth and comprehensive approach, then the Having Health Now program is the way to go.
Having Health Now™ is a revolutionary concept in alternative medicine that bridges ancient healing traditions with the needs of modern society. The program is designed to help you achieve optimal health and live from your deepest potential. Instead of using will power to force yourself to change, the program will teach you the power of mindfulness to transform your life at the core. By using a revolutionary combination of spiritual disciplines (meditation and yoga), whole foods nutrition, herbs, and the ancient healing practice of acupuncture, Having Health Now can get you back on track so you can feel and look revitalized.
Here's is what you will receive in the Having Health Now program:
At this point you may be asking, 'why would this program help me?' Good question. Think of it this way: Every single treatment option in Having Health Now has been used for thousands of years. There is a reason why meditation, yoga, nutrition, herbs, and acupuncture have been around for so long and why they are so popular today. Any one of these approaches can work miracles if they are used skillfully. They have stood the test of time because they have helped literally billions of people. I have discovered (personally and clinically) that the combination of all of these ancient healing practices can lead to a heightened sense of wellbeing that is far beyond what most of us ever experience. They truly have a synergistic effect when used in combination. And they are all the most natural and safe forms of medicine available to us. You will learn how to use food as medicine so your dietary choices will reflect optimal health. You will learn how to use your breath as a powerful tool for boosting energy, heightening awareness, and calming stress. You will discover the enormous health benefits of power and hatha yoga. And you will receive a highly effective and gentle form of acupuncture that combines the 5 element and 8 principle approaches. Most importantly, you will learn how to use mindfulness as a gateway to feeling more connected with yourself and others, which will benefit you for as long as you live.
Why is mindfulness so important?
Without mindfulness, I believe that it is nearly impossible to make authentic lifestyle changes and initiate the healing process. Mindfulness enables us to be fully present and have a direct relationship with our lives. We have a lot of ideas about who we should be, what we should look like, and how we are going to become that person. For most of us, however, we never quite get there. We always have that elusive 10 pounds to lose. We never feel quite as good as we would like. We never fully accept our bodies as they are. Being attached to feelings of ‘not enough' will NEVER enable you to make the changes you truly need to make. Mindfulness allows us to know what we really need. This is very different from what we think we want or what our judging mind is telling us should happen. If we know what we need, we will automatically be more capable of taking the right steps to actualize a balanced and successful life. We will be starting off with a foundation of inner fullness rather than guilt, self-hatred, or shame. We can initiate change as a reflection of this fullness, which provokes inspiration and confidence. Yes, there is still discipline required, but mindfulness enables us to relate to ourselves in a no-fail, spacious, and compassionate manner. Mindfulness is a way of trusting ourselves to make the right choices for our health and wellbeing. When it comes to lifestyle choices, we tend to look at things in a black and white way. Either we are ‘dieting' and eating salads, counting calories, and saying ‘no' to ourselves, or we are indulging in whatever we want. Either we are on an exercise program that we stick with religiously or we don't exercise at all. Sound familiar? Once again, mindfulness is all about having a direct relationship with what we really need and trusting that in each moment. It isn't about giving up everything you like. It isn't about torturing yourself with diet and exercise gimmicks. It's all about finding balance and living in moderation forever. This is the key to healthy living and this is exactly what I help my patients to discover. There is nothing more liberating than committing to a balanced and mindful relationship with your life. This is not something that most of us have been taught to do, which is why so many of us are struggling with our health and quality of life. Living in balance is a dynamic process that takes a daily commitment. Sorry to be the one to say it, but there really aren't any shortcuts to this. It takes a lot of strength, courage, and self-care to find this within yourself on a daily basis. But it is possible.
How do I develop a mindful relationship with myself?
Well, that is exactly what you will discover in Having Health Now. For thousands of years, meditation and yoga have been used as the primary tools to develop mindfulness. Please refer to the pages on meditation and yoga for more information. (coming soon!) Using these practices as a foundation, you will learn how to bring mindfulness to your eating habits, exercise habits, relationships, and your life in general.
Can I really do this?
Absolutely! I believe that we are not on this planet to struggle. Our natural state is one of balance and mindfulness. The hardest part is reconditioning ourselves so we can make contact with this natural state that is already within us.
My goal is to offer you a set of tools that will enable you to experience a level of wellness that is far beyond anything you have experienced. Most people are living with an average state of health. They feel OK, they are getting by, they are able to function… But are they truly thriving? Do they feel alive in their bodies and full of energy and clarity? My guess would be NO!! Read my article on achieving optimal health to see what I mean by this. By using ancient, safe, natural practices that have stood the test of time, you will be embarking on this journey toward optimal wellness.
