New Holistic Wellness Center Opens on the Main Line

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
by Traci Orimenko, Holistic Health Counselor

The Live Well Holistic Health Center is open for business in Ardmore, PA, and we’re very excited to be here in the heart of the Main Line, offering a natural approach to health and healing to the greater Philadelphia area.

Dr. Martin Orimenko, DC, ND, FIACA is both the director and one of the founders of the Live Well Holistic Health Center, and he is a Chiropractor, Acupuncturist and Naturopath.  Dr. Martin combines these modalities, plus nutrition, Ayurveda, and lifestyle counseling, neuro-emotional work, and Kinesiologic Analysis to patients in his comprehensive Holistic Health Visits.  We also offer massage and reiki therapy sessions at Live Well.

Dr. Martin has almost 20 years of experience as a holistic healer, and he has treated over 5000 patients at his prior practices in Sausalito, California (where for 7 years he had Sausalito Chiropractic www.sausalitochiropractic.com) and in St. Louis, Missouri (where for the 12 years prior he had The Healing Center). 

We moved back home to the Philadelphia area so we could raise our son Alex surrounded by a large and loving family and immersed in the culture and communities in which we each grew up.  We’ve really appreciated being back home, in touch with our roots, and the four seasons, once again. 

And it’s clear that people here on the east coast are looking for holistic natural approaches to common medical issues like digestive problems, allergies, blood sugar imbalances, cholesterol problems, hormonal imbalances, inflammatory conditions, skin problems, environmental sensitivities, chronic fatigue, as well as musculoskeletal problems,  headaches and general pain.  We are looking forward to supporting people in the Philadelphia Area with their health and vibrancy, using a natural approach to medicine.  We’ve found that this is almost always more efficient and effective, and also less expensive, than our traditional medical system with its costly pharmaceuticals and their long list of side effects.

What makes Dr. Martin Orimenko stand out from other holistic practitioners is that he employs a combination of each of these treatment modalities in each visit to treat the whole person.  

Gentle Chiropractic & Bodywork
Chiropractic adjustments align your spine, relieve pinched nerves and facilitate healing by freeing up nerve energy. Bodywork alleviates muscle tension, corrects tendon and ligament issues and supports good posture.  Various physiotherapies stimulate blood flow, relieve muscle tension and reduce pain.  We also have a massage therapist available by appointment.

Acupuncture & Acupressure
Acupuncture and acupressure remove blockages in the flow of blood and vital energy, and specific points address specific health issues. These ancient approaches energize and balance organs and glands, and optimize the functioning of the body systems.  

Nutrition and Cleansing
Through adjustments to your diet, gentle cleansing programs and prescribing specific nutritional and herbal supplements, we will correct deficiencies, support detoxification and stimulate healing, optimizing your wellness and longevity.

Ayurveda
We will support you in balancing your body and mind through lifestyle modification in the areas of diet, exercises and daily routine in accordance with your constitution type or dosha.  

Emotional and Lifestyle Counseling
NeuroEmotional Technique removes the charge on emotional issues that impact your health and facilitates you in accomplishing your goals.  We also have a Holistic Health Counselor to work with you in focused sessions over a six month period to help you reach your optimum health and vibrancy by making small accessible changes in your eating habits and bringing more balance into other key areas of your life.
 
Natural Supplement Prescriptions 
We stock supplements for a wide range of health conditions and general wellness. Dr. Martin will determine the optimum nutritional support for your needs.  He will work with you to develop a customized program to help you reach your health goals.

We are conveniently located at 16 East Lancaster Avenue in Ardmore,
PA. Our office hours are Monday, Tuesday and Friday 9-5 and Wednesday and Thursday from 1-7, or by appointment. Please call to make an appointment.

Reconnective Healing – Helping people heal themselves

Monday, March 15th, 2010

by Sarah Dickinson Murray

Reconnective Healing®, a registered trademark of Dr. Eric Pearl, designates the use of a certain type or frequency of healing energies to help people heal themselves of disease and dysfunction. In his book, “The Reconnection” he explains how he came to be the vector of these energies, which apparently had not yet been present on Earth up until this time. As a chiropractor, he was accustomed to people feeling better after a treatment, but the healings he began to witness were nothing like what he had experienced before, many of them quasi miraculous occurrences never before seen in modern medicine. Scientific experiments have since validated the presence and effects of these energies, and he has understood that his role has changed from healer to teacher. His mission now is to teach as many people as possible how to use these energies, and become activated just by coming into contact with them, through his seminars and by reading his book. He claims that the simple act of reading it will connect you with these energies, which is something that I found to be absolutely true.

After reading the book, I realized that what I was doing with clients on the table had changed. And it wasn’t that I was applying a new idea or technique in my work – not only the quality of the healings changed, but instead of asking my clients what was going on, I would ask them to lie on the table and then would receive information about their state of health directly from their energy field. At the end of the session, I realized from talking with them that 9 times out of 10 I had been correct in assessing their situation, which led me to understand that I was practicing medical intuition.

This was a very exciting discovery, and I knew that it would affect the way I would practice from then on. I quickly signed up for the next Reconnection seminar coming to my area, waiting impatiently for the chance to meet the man in person, hear what he had to say and experience first hand what I had so avidly read about. When the time came, I had no idea that I would be in a room with 400 other people, all as curious as I was to find out more about these incredible healings. As the seminar unfolded, several healings took place, each of which seemed “miraculous”. Not all of them were done by Eric: I spoke with a woman who had been the patient of another seminar attendee during an exercise, and suddenly began to feel her foot move spontaneously. Victim of a car accident 15 years earlier, her ankle had been permanently immobilized with metal pins, making it impossible for her to bend her foot at the ankle. Getting up from the table, she realized that she had regained mobility in a limb that the doctors had told her she would never move again!

That seminar actually left me with more questions than answers, and it literally transformed, once again, the way I was practicing with my clients. I have often been told that being confused after doing inner work is a good thing, because it indicates that your mental framework has been shaken, opening up the inner space to receive the knowledge of being, as opposed to doing something in order to achieve a goal. I certainly was shaken up after the seminar, not because I didn’t believe that such healings could occur, but because I was basically told that I could no longer practice the way I had been, since other healing modalities, such as Reiki and crystal therapy, would be overshadowed by these new healing energies, and no longer have a raison d’etre. Not that I was particularly invested in any specific technique: my work had evolved over the years, and was not the result of any school of thought or practice besides my own. But I still had to question my practice, put it to the test of Reconnective Healing, to see if I could find compatibility and complementarity between what I already knew and what I had just learned.

What I found out was that yes, there is compatibility. There is even complementarity in that everything I have learned for the past 30 years, from Herbalism and Naturopathy to NLP and Family Constellation work, not to mention massage, meditation, shamanism, Ayurvedic medicine and Traditional Chinese medicine, has a place in how I practice natural medicine. I am not a medical doctor, nor do I practice modern Western medicine in any form; the medicine I practice has its roots in almost every traditional native culture on this planet. This medicine is not about making anyone “better”. It is about helping people to find their center, and to come back into harmony with their essence. Once this is done, the physical aspects will follow.

Although I am not in total agreement with everything I heard at the seminar, I would have to say that the results I have observed following it have been impressive. Not everyone has a spectacular healing, and sometimes the results are not really ascertained until much later. But there have been a few instances of total, instantaneous relief of pain, swelling, trembling and other symptoms, and a general sense of well being afterward. Eric says that healing always happens – not necessarily in the way we expect or want it to happen, but it happens nonetheless. The “healer” is just a conduit for the energies; the real healer is the person being healed, because they are using the energies to heal themselves!
