Holistic Health Services


Holistic Health at The Estuary supports the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the chronically ill. Individuals who are dealing with an active illness and are receiving treatment for this illness through their physician are eligible for services. Therapies are tailored to individual needs and personal circumstances and are designed to complement and not replace traditional medical therapies.
Illnesses supported include and are not limited to:

  • cancer

  • autoimmunity

  • chronic digestive issues

  • thyroid and adrenal issues

I just wanted to express my gratitude and unending thanks for the Estuary. It has changed my life. I would have been unable to participate if not for your program for cancer patients. I just wanted to let you know how wonderful this experience has been and continues to be.

Our Holistic Health Services
Energy Therapy is one of the methods we integrate into our clients' complementary treatment plan. It is based on the connection between the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual realms of our lives. The healing energy is channeled through the therapist's hands into the clients' body to restore a normal energy balance, relaxation and therefore, health. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health funded research that suggests patients who receive energy therapy during their treatment experience less pain and anxiety. Energy therapy can work well alongside chemotherapy and radiation to assist with side effects by restoring the natural flow of energy.

Health Coaching involves working with your coach to establish a plan that encourages healing from the inside out through changes in food and lifestyle habits. Small, meaningful steps are taken toward lasting change. We look at the four pillars of health: good nutrition, movement, restful sleep, and stress management.

Life Coaching moves you toward a co-creative relationship with your life. We cannot control life's circumstances, but we can control how we respond to those circumstances. Our coaches work with clients experiencing the challenges of a health crisis to assist them with learning and mastering skills, tools, and techniques such as thought management, visualization, self-care, self-love, and goal setting. Our professional life coaches use a method of coaching that is a highly tuned and powerful process of communication and problem solving. The work you do with your coach is focused on your unique interests, challenges, and goals.

Integrative Therapy is based on a mind/body/spirit philosophy and consists of experiential talk therapy or life coaching in combination with energy therapy. Talk therapy consists of exploring and deepening our relationship with our emotions, thoughts, and physical body and becoming more aware of how they influence and interact with each other. One of the fundamental principles of integrative therapy is that healing one level of the mind, body, or spirit can affect healing on the other levels. By exploring all three levels of ourselves simultaneously, we believe deep and lasting healing to be possible.

EMDR is a respected mind/body based therapy that help individuals reprocess distressing memories and to develop more adaptive coping mechanisms. It is a highly effective therapy when used as a primary therapy or when combined with traditional talk therapies. This is a well-researched process that that includes having clients recall distressing images while receiving one of several types of bilateral sensory input, including side-to-side eye movements.
