WELLNESS PHILOSOPHY
Repatterning is Foundational
The approach in a repatterning session is, in essence, to offer support for optimal nutritional and somatic function. Implicit is a profound respect for the human body's ability to regain balance once its basic needs are met. In contrast to the conventional focus on chasing individual symptoms, this foundational approach taps into the innate intelligence of the body, and ensures that changes we make are systemic, holistic and lasting.

Repatterning is Empowering
In a repatterning session, we are provided with 'take-home tools' and skilled guidance to activate our inborn healing capacities. This focus on self-reliance aims beyond a dependence upon practitioners or drugs to simply "fix" the client. In repatterning work, it is the client who takes the lead in their wellness journey. Repatterning is thus both a privilege and a responsibilty: we are supported to create healthier patterns at our own pace, and simultaneously recognize that no one else can do this work for us. The limits lie only in our willingness to participate.

Repatterning is Integrative
Repatterning work combines nutritional and epigenetic sciences with somatic practices (along with a helping of good old common-sense) to approach wellness in a way that honors the entire mind-body system. By gently increasing awareness of our habits and their connections to pain, tension and fatigue, we begin the process of "reprogramming"' healthier patterns.

Repatterning is Connective
A key aspect of this work is reconnection with our own bodily wisdom, and the understanding of ourselves as natural systems, with various levels of ecologies: from the individual body and our own "microbiome", to the social bodies of our families and communities, onward to the greater ecologies of our landscape and the earthly body. We highlight the systemic relationship between the inner and outer, the neurological and ecological, thus creating more effortless integration between self, community and place.

Repatterning makes a wonderful complement to other health and community care modalities such as herbal medicine, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, counseling, etc.
