The Mind Body Center: Leclaire Hypnobirthing Method
We have an associate and referral medical staff, allopathic and ayurvedic physicians, a nurse practitioner, a nutritionist and acupuncturists.
Many health and wellness programs and centers deal only with the superficial ways of momentarily changing the body's biochemistry. Imagery and laughter are excellent ways to elevate one's energy, but they alone cannot alter a person's old habits and unhealthy ways of being and thinking. The Mind Body Center includes meditation, imagery and hypnosis and therapeutic touch as an integral part of its program. However, to move toward a true and lasting state of well-being, Dr. O'Neill addresses the desires and needs that well up from the unconscious which manifests through our emotions and dreams.
A center for well being that promotes the healthy interconnectedness of mind body in all health related issues, with a direct focus on:
Pregnancy and labor
For those of you who have concerns with:
Conceiving or holding a pregnancy
Healthy pregnancy – easy labor
Early parenting – prenatal to 3
Getting well again
We often respond automatically and unconsciously today to situations directly related to prenatal experience and early childhood and familial and societal influences. Here you are offered a path of effectively developing healthy attitudes and behaviors which will beneficially influence your:
Reducing anxiety and fear
Enhancing joy of pregnancy
Developing ways of acceptance, change, and healing
