Eros as Medicine: A Solution for Our Collective Healing

Kalpana (Rose) M. Kumar, M.D.
Power rules our country and where power predominates, love is lacking. Power evokes fear, not love. Fear is ever present in medicine: we're afraid to see the doctor, afraid of symptoms, afraid of treatment,  afraid of prognosis, afraid of reoccurrence. We are victimized by this fear and delegate our power to experts, invasive procedures, and/or prescription medications. Physicians were once considered teachers and healers, carrying out a sacred mission. A mission of Eros or love that has been banished. Read more and learn how to root in Eros and embody our power to heal ourselves and society. Read more here...

In August, Tammy Winkelman, RN, LMT expanded her massage techniques to include CranioSacral therapy.  Beginning November, 2018 through March, 2019 she is offering CranioSacral therapy, including mouth-work*, at the discounted price of $40 per 60min session. We've received positive feedback from patients who took advantage of the CranioSacral therapy and expect that will continue.  CranioSacral therapy was developed in the 1970s. It is a gentle, manual therapy, performed fully-clothed, that seeks to locate and remove restrictions throughout the complete body system.   *Mouth-work is an extended therapy protocol.  It pertains to working with the structures and functions of the mouth, throat, and the many small structures/muscles of the head and neck. There is a first-hand relationship between the mouth, head, neck, shoulders, and pelvis that, when addressed, is beneficial for all types of body system issues. Please refer to Tammy's article in our  August newsletter  for more detailed information about CranioSacral therapy.
