Why take a Holistic approach to Health and Wellness?
In addition to providing eye exams, Dr. Jeffers now offers more. She believes that "whole body" wellness is more than managing symptoms. It is about evaluating and addressing the whole person, including their stress levels, work, trauma past or present, environment, childhood, and emotional state.
Once all of these are addressed during your initial consultation Dr. Jeffers will work with you to come up with a treatment plan that is right for you.
Dr. Jeffers is now re-opening to accept patients for eye exams. She can prescribe eyeglasses and contact lenses, in addition to giving you a thorough eye health check up.
In addition, there are methods of preventing and slowing down the progression of eye disorders. In addition, Dr. Jeffers has protocols for various eye conditions, including macular degeneration, dry eyes, cataracts, floaters and glaucoma. She can also address diabetic, blood pressure and cholesterol changes in your eyes. Protocols involve anti-aging lifestyle and nutritional changes as well as healthy vitamins and nutraceuticals which address your specific needs.
Dr. Jeffers also specializes in Low Vision Care, helping people find real solutions to assist with partial vision loss. She also utilizes a software-based program to improve your Functional Vision: Reading skills, athletic performance, concussions and headaches and eye muscle coordination. (www.righteye.com)
Ondamed Wave Medicine
Dr. Jeffers is a certified Ondamed practitioner. Ondamed means wave "medicine". New research in metaphysics shows that everything vibrates at specific frequencies, including cells and organ systems in our bodies. Stress has been shown to disrupt these frequencies which leads to disease.
Ondamed is a Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency biofeedback device that helps relieve stress and allows your body to return to a healthier vibration. It's like tuning an orchestra... If the horn section is out of tune/vibration, the entire orchestra will be adversely affected.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. The craniosacral system includes the membranes and fluid that surround the spinal cord. A very light but focused touch is used at variuos locations of your body to assess the rythym and motion of the cerebral fluid as it pulses around your brain and spinal cord. Soft-touch techniques are used to release restrictions in any tissues influencing the carniosacral system.
This technique is non-invasive and gentle. It is beneficial for all ages, from young children to elders.If you are able, you will be lying down on a massage table (fully clothed) while this gentle touch is being applied. If you unable to lie down on the table, the techniques may be done while you are sitting down. The entire protocol pasts about 50 minutes, during which most people feel deeply relaxed. For some people, results are immediate, others may take several days. This technique helps with general wellness and health; re-balancing your system. In addition, many conditions can be helped with craniosacral therapy. These include but are not limited to pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines, TMJ syndrome, sinus problems, injury and trauma, ADD, ADHD, and even depression.
Dr. Jeffers combines Reiki with your CranioSacral Therapy session, calling it "CranioSacral Reiki".
Reiki is a Japenese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The word reiki is made of two Japenese words -Rei which means "Gods Wisdom, Spirit, or Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy". When the life energy in your body is unbalanced, this can lead to dis-ease, sickness, and just feeling "off". Reiki Balances the energy fields in your body and organs which promotes healing, wellness and feelings of well-being. A Reiki treatment involves using hands to transfer this life energy into your energy field. Hands are either held slightly off the body or lightly touching. It feels like a warm, loving, peaceful energy infusing your body and spirit. You are left feeling incredibly relaxed and peaceful, with a more focused mind. The effects of this energy will continue for several days. For some people, this has truly been life changing.
Reiki is also used on animals, helping to calm fears, alleviate pain and promote healing. Animals are very receptive to Reiki. Cats seem to possess a natural Reiki energy of their own. Notice how a cat's purr calms you. It has been documented that a cat's purr will even help heal a broken bone more quickly!
Dr. Jeffers has completed the two levels of CranioSacral Therapy Training with The Upledger Institure.
She is also a Reiki Master Practioner. She even works on animals.
Hypnosis is when your mind is in an extremely relaxed, dream-like state and your brain waves slow down to an alpha/theta state. This is similar to the trance-like state we experience when daydreaming. It is while in this state that your subconscious mind is accessed and is open to new insights and beneficial suggestions. This has helped many people with such issues as public speaking, sports performance, insomnia, pain or injury management, autoimmune disorders, developing healthier habits, forgiveness of self and others and more.
While in this hypnotic, natural, extremely realxed state your inner self is accessed. Your inner self, your inner physician lies within you; deep within our subconscious. By going within, you can discover not only perceived problems to be resolved but also inner strength and wisdom. This helps you resolve and go beyond those personal issues to make positive and powerful changes in your life. During these sessions, you will be able to speak to Dr. Jeffers while remaining very relaxed, yet aware, state. This has helped with pain management, fears and phobias, self esteem, depression, traumas, childhood issues, and much more.
There are studies that show hypnosis helps in pain management and various medical conditions. Dr. Jeffers uses hypnotherapy while doing Ondamed treatment. This has been very effective.
Are You Able To Be Hypnotized?
We often hear clients saying that cannot be hypnotized. It's not a magical state, its a brain wave state that we've all experienced quite frequently!
Dr. Jeffers is a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. She is a member of IACT, The International Association of Counselors and Therapists and AHA, The American Hypnosis Association.
