My Philosophy

What is Focused Intention?

'OM' - The symbol that started the philosophy behind my business. The word Om is defined by Hindu scripture as being the primordial sound of creation. It is the original vibration of the universe. From this first vibration, all other vibrations are able to manifest.

 

I was moved by this symbol and its encouragement of creating one's self. After taking time to observe, learn, and experience the power behind the meaning of Om, it fueled me to create Focused Intention. 

AS YOUR ABILITY TO TRUST INCREASES, THE VOICES THAT GUIDE YOU CAN SPEAK MORE soflty

Additional Services

CranioSacral

CranioSacral therapy uses very light pressure to detect restrictions and restore balance to the CranioSacral system. Restrictions in the CranioSacral system can cause pain and dysfunction and compromise the performance of the musculoskeletal and neurological systems surrounding it. This is done fully clothed lying on a massage table. The pressure that is applied is no heavier than a weight of a nickel. CranioSacral therapy is an effective treatment modality for:

  • Post Concussion Syndrome

  • Migraines & headaches

  • Acute & chronic neck & back pain

  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction

Trager Approach

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for helping me with my tendonitis. I could barely lift my arm a month ago and now I actually went back to my kickboxing class! Your advice, knowledge and at-home exercises all contributed to my healing process. Thanks again!

I highly recommend that any individual actively engaged in any type or level physical training or sports incorporate the services of Valarie into their training.  Valarie pays close attention to the physical needs of the active adult, whether it’s stress-induced injury, sport-related injury or just simple muscle aches from using a dormant muscle.  She is focused on restoring the body back to wellness and maintaining that wellness over the long-term.  Her knowledge of the intricacies of the human body make her approach effective and help relieve the pain and soreness from the source.  Valarie also offers a maintenance program, allowing clients to establish a regular schedule aimed at injury prevention and long-term wellness.  As an active woman over 40, I strongly recommend incorporating Valarie into your regular regimen for both preventive and symptomatic wellness.
