FAQ
What is the "Mind-Body Connection"?
​The mind-body connection is the understanding that our brain can directly influence your body and it's health through thoughts, habits, beliefs, and emotions. The nervous, endocrine and immune system all share a common chemical "language" that allows communication in your body through messengers like hormones and neurotransmitters.

When you are stressed, for example, your mind can directly impact your bodily health. If you've ever felt your hands shake from excitement or nerves or butterflies in your stomach waiting to see someone you care about, you've experienced the mind-body connection.  Our goal at Phoenix Integrated Health Professionals is to provide an opportunity to create balance between body and mind health so that the body as a whole can function more efficiently, giving you a better overall quality of life.

What are the benefits of including reflexology, massage, yoga, and meditation in my life?
We offer the above services at Phoenix Integrated Health Professionals because of their scientifically backed impact on improved mental and physical health. 

Reflexology
Improves circulation, decreases tension, and is a non-invasive treatment that can help manage things such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, stress, endocrine and digestive problems, pain in the body, as well as many other common physical and mental concerns.
Massage Therapy
Massage therapy can benefit many concerns, such as anxiety, digestion, headaches, insomnia, injuries, and much more. It promotes overall relaxation as well as mental and physical health.

Yoga
Both a mental and physical practice, Yoga can cater to what your mind and body need simultaneously. We offer personalized yoga in individual, couples, or small group settings so that the instructor can focus on the concerns you have and spend time on breath and movement work that can improve your well-being. Yoga can help with anxiety, depression, pain, stress, insomnia, and overall general health.
Meditation
Mediation is a process that encourages you to take time and breathe, improving overall stress, concentration, self awareness, cardiovascular and immune system health, as well as encouraging and overarching healthy lifestyle.



We encourage our clients to add these services into their lives alongside counselling, personal development, or psychotherapy to promote overall wellness in all areas of their life.
