What are The Healing Codes?

The Healing Codes are a simple and powerful self-healing system that was discovered in 2001 by Alex Loyd, PhD, ND. Every time you use a Healing Code, it activates a physical function built into the body that consistently and predictably removes the #1 cause of illness and disease from the body . . . stress.

Energy Medicine

“We’re beginning now to understand things that we know in our hearts are true but we could never measure,” he says. “As we get better at understanding how little we know about the body, we begin to realize that the next big frontier in medicine is energy medicine. It’s not the mechanistic part of the joints moving. It’s not the chemistry of our body. It’s understanding for the first time how energy influences how we feel.” ~ Dr. Mehmet Oz

Blog: Each Person Is A Universe

Each Person Is A Universe

I’m always amazed at how different we all look from one another — with billions of people in the world, it would seem that we would at least resemble others more often.  I have found the same truth when it comes to teaching exercise to different people.  There are no two people who are alike.  People may seem similar in their physique but they are not.

When someone comes in for a session, they have a unique, individual, complex make-up.  They have different genes, DNA, life experiences, psychological make-ups, an elaborate puzzle put together by habits, lifestyles and patterns, also accidents and surgeries.  This is what makes teaching Pilates and Gyrotonic so interesting.

A session is a process of thoroughly investigating with the client what works best for their particular circumstances to give them the desired results.  Some people have major conditions like Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, joint replacements, sciatica, fusions, scoliosis, carpal tunnel, TMJ, migraine headaches and more.  Others are coming in to get fit and to enhance and deepen their physical conditioning.

What’s exciting for us as teachers is that we get to help figure out what’s best and potentially change a client’s direction from a downward spiral to uplifting their body and spirit through proper conditioning and education.
