I have a friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was shocked because I know her to be extremely knowledgeable around health. What I found was that she hasn’t been in a healthy relationship for years, and she also has internalized anger for a very long time. She has been so nurturing to others her whole life, she never really loved herself. Hmmm. So, you mean there are many factors that contribute to breakdown and disease? Yes!
I’ve never asked Phil why the clinic was named Tavo TOTAL Health, verses Tavo Myofascial Release, or Tavo PT. But one can easily infer that although our focus is the John Barnes method of MFR, you will also find sound healing, crystals, and education about how to use specific nutritional products to enhance your healing experience.
You’ll also find 1) A cork board with a collective of holistic practitioners and professionals. 2) Monthly talks with different wellness coaches and specialists. 3) Parenting workshops, financial wellness events, and community gatherings.
Why? Because TOTAL health is a combination of many areas of life. See the wellness wheel. How would you rate the quality of those different areas of life?
It’s helpful to write down what you’re doing in these categories for TOTAL health. Rate them on a scale from 1-10, with 10 being the healthiest state.
Health and healing is an ongoing journey of discovery. Set an intention of lifelong personal growth and continue to cycle back to each of these areas. There is always room for improvement somewhere.
There are many paths to total health and wellness. Not one is the “right” one just like one religion isn’t the “right” one. We find a doorway and walk through, explore all that it is. But never lose sight of all the other doorways important for your TOTAL health.
