"AKIVA" - WHO I AM ~ WHAT I DO
"Akiva" is my Hebrew name. It can mean different things to different people. To me it means heritage.
For the past 28 years I have been "a Searcher" and "God wrestler.
In my quest for answers, I learned that Judaism offers ancient methods to aid in one's healing. Most of my co-religionists were not aware that such material is available.
In the course of my study, I happened across Hypnotherapy. I was astonished to discover that our minds have such a tremendous influence on the workings of our bodies. In fact, many of the books I had been reading, written by medical doctors, confirmed this observation.
The more I read, the more convinced I became that the mind, body, spirit connection was real and could be used to help people help themselves.
I strongly believe and current research supports the theory that when a person is pro active in his/her healing process, something positive gets added to the process and remarkable results can occur.
My work is to help people discover the healing power within. Once a person
finds it, everything in life begins to shift. Negative experiences endured as children, adolescents, or even as an adults can be emotionally disarmed in ways that decrease the toxicity of the impact to one's mental and physical well being. This shift in thinking can result in permanent and profound healing.
However, because most of us yearn for security, we often become intimidated by new ideas and new ways of thinking. Understandably,we feel more comfortable with what we know and is familiar to us. Nevertheless, the very essence of life is change and transformation. Healing can be a positive byproduct of that growth and change.
Of course, the ability to help heal oneself varies from person to person. It is my assertion though, that anyone can power boost the benefits he or she receives from traditional therapies by working with me on integrative mind/body therapies.
