Welcome to Back in Balance, LLC. I am Mike Ericson and I appreciate you taking the time to visit us. I specialize in promoting wellness and delivering therapeutic and rehabilitative massage with a special emphasis on conservative TMJ therapy and sport's injury.
First things first, we need to discuss wellness and what it means. Wellness is not an absence of illness, pain and disease, but rather it's a healthy balance of mind, body and spirit that allows us to enjoy life to the fullest without the hindrance of dysfunction. We achieve wellness through our choices in activities, diet, career, family and recreation. If we make good, healthy choices then we reap good, healthy benefits. If we make poor choices, well you get the idea. The wellness wheel puts it into perspective nicely.
Wellness Wheel Dimensional Choices / QualitiesIntellectual: staying engaged, reading, learning
Physical: exercise, posture, diet, lifestyle
Emotional: relaxation, meditation, love Spiritual: spirituality, religion, higher power, purpose Social: relationships, support groups, community involvement Environmental: harmoneous living with nature
We at Back in Balance, LLC have a holistic approach toward wellness. What that means is that taking care of the entire person is the key. For centuries mainstream medicine has treated us as a collection of symptoms, syndromes and conditions. There is plenty of research out there that says treating only a disease or symptom does not in fact bring the person back into wellness or homeostasis (balance).
That is why I promote the concept of a wellness team, which is your network of like-minded healthcare providers from differing disciplines all working together to allow you to achieve your maximum level of wellness, see some of the folks I like to use on the Wellness Team page.
Again, let me welcome you and I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for visiting,
