As a Western trained physician, treating disease was the focus of most of my formal medical education. But my real love in medicine has always been exploring different energy systems to stimulate and improve the flow of energy (Chi) throughout the body/mind/spirit pathways. The Eastern medicine concept of treating the energy systems of the body, while still addressing lifestyle and physical issues, makes so much sense to me.
Lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, a clean diet, drinking more water, much more sleep, stretching, deep breathing, being grateful, releasing old emotional trauma, time in the woods, etc. improves health in large part by stimulating energy flow in and around the body. Clearly, energy flow is very important for good health.
These sessions are not intended to treat a specific illness or medical problem but rather improve energy flow on many levels throughout the body/mind/spirit matrix. Most individuals experience a deep relaxation response and many report major improvements in physical and emotional health issues. However, these sessions are not a substitute for regular health care by a primary care physician.
The 1 1/4 hour long program will take place at Peak Brain Performance, 97 E. Wilson Bridge Rd., Worthington, Ohio 43085. On Saturdays March 7th and April 18th, two sessions will be offered each day, 10:30 am and 1:00 pm. The cost is $30/person with each session limited to 6 participants. For further information or to register, please call Chris at my office 740-392-6098.
Dr. Bazzoli has begun to offer similar 1 1/4 hour sound sessions at Shakti Fit and Hot Yoga Escape yoga studios in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. These classes will be a more general sound program and are open to 12 participants. This larger session will include only one optional acupuncture needle placed in the forehead by Dr. Bazzoli. For details or to register for these programs, please refer to their website, http://www.shaktifit.com/workshops or http://www.hotyogaescape.com respectively.
Important Notes: The VEB registration fee for the Worthington program is payable at the event (check or cash only). Participants are responsible for the full fee if cancelled within 24 hrs of the event.
Individuals need to wear relaxing clothing. Participants will be laying on yoga mats on the floor during the session, so each individual needs to be able to physically get down on the floor and upright afterwards. In Worthington, one yoga mats (1/2″ thickness) and one blanket will be provided but please bring your own mat if you need more cushioning or more blankets for head and leg support.
Because of chemical sensitivities, please refrain from wearing perfumes, colognes or scents of any kind including cigarette smoke clothing. Please arrive 15 minutes early so the session can begin on time.
