There is a story in the Gospel according to Mark in which the daughter of a wealthy man is sick. He asks Jesus to heal his daughter. During the journey to this man's house, a woman who had been sick for many years touched Jesus' robe and received instant healing. She had spent all the money she had, and went to many doctors, but suffered for over 10 years with constant bleeding. Jesus stopped, and interacted with this woman. He saw this woman who was cast out from society and isolated, and chose to speak to her. When Jesus resumed his journey to the rich man's daughter, new arrived that she had died.
Jesus went to this little girl, grabbed her hand, and said "Talitha Cumi", which means, "Little girl, arise". She stood up, and she lived.
It is our goal to provide a space of rest and pause, so that you may find healing and arise.
We would love to create a space for healing from the complications of emotional and physical trauma. The effects of micro and macro emotional trauma can manifest itself in physical pain. Similarly, physical pain can limit social, recreational and occupational engagement and cause emotional pain. We aim to create a space for a wholistic approach to healing that encompasses the mind, body and soul.
A Healing Place seeks to meet clients in their pain experience and educate clients in managing their pain and mobility. Through integrating mind, body and soul, A Healing Place uses a wholistic approach to pain and injury management.
