Holistic Healing
Holistic Healing encompasses many things. Methods of treatment include, but are not limited to: applied kinesiology, aromatherapy, flower essences, breathing techniques, movement, color and light therapy, sound healing, Resonance Repatterning®, and Reiki.
Resonance Repatterning®
Resonance Repatterning® is a process that makes it possible to create positive changes. It involves the basic principles of psychology, as well as ancient knowledge of the Chakra system of India and the Five Element-Meridian system of China. Resonance Repatterning® sessions explore personal experiences, difficulties, and limiting habits or self-perceptions. These patterns are then transformed to a new level of functioning through modalities such as sound, light, touch, movement, breath, and essential oils. When self-limiting patterns shift, people often say they feel more connected and have a greater understanding of their healing process.
Reiki
Reiki (pronounced ray´ key) is a gentle, hands-on, energy healing therapy. It is the ancient art of channeling universal life force or “qi”, the subtle energy that creates and sustains all life. “Each and every thing that exists in the universe possesses universal life force. The essence of all that is.” Mikao Usui, founder of Reiki. From this energy within the human body comes the power to live life with strength, purpose, and the natural ability to heal. The experience of Reiki has often been described as warm, soothing, and “tingly.” Relaxation can occur when the chakras (i.e., energetic centers of the body) are balanced and opened, and the body and mind are stilled. During and after a session, clients often report feeling very calm, with a heightened sense of awareness and intuition.
Holistic Business Consulting
Mrs. Brown helps her business clients communicate their "inur-most" purpose through intentional marketing and messaging. Thanks to her background in complementary and alternative medicine, public speaking, and consulting, she understands how to communicate this important medicine in terms with which people relate. Helping natural health and wellness small businesses succeed is her passion.
Testimonials
“In my very first session, Tara and I were able to pinpoint how a bad habit of mine had started. Once I better understood what had caused it, I was able to work through it.” -C.S., Portland, OR | “I have participated in conventional therapy and it wasn’t until I worked with Tara that I quickly broke through to the core of my issues.” –B.J., Portland, OR | “After my first session with Tara, I called everyone I knew and told them they had to go see her.” –Erin Sutherland, Marketing Director | “Tara acts with grace and intuition. Her work helps facilitate me in the moment exactly where I need to go. In fact, I always feel like one session with Tara is worth about 2 years of psychotherapy! My work with her has helped me move through tough times personally and allowed me to be a much more present and grounded single mother. She was also able to get my squiggle worm son to sit still and be engaged in a processing session as well. Wow, now that's really saying something.” –Helane Wahbeh, ND, Physician & Researcher | “The time Tara took with us leading up to the ceremony allowed us to organize our thoughts about what was really important to us in our ceremony. The end result was a wonderful day that we will never forget. Thanks Tara!” Melissa & Jason Lindekugel Portland, OR
