Sacred Journeys . . . Holistic Health & Wellness, by: Jackie Dickerson van der Velde, C. Ht.
I graduated from South Puget Sound Community College with a Liberal Arts degree with an emphasis in Pre-Nursing. During the first quarter of the nursing program, I found myself conflicted about the use of medications in western medicine. Not that there is not a place for medication, but the over emphasis on pharmaceuticals really bothered me. I did not want to push medications, which mostly mask symptoms, I desired to find the root of illness and help people get well.
Through a turn of events in my own family, I ended up not completing nursing school. One year later, I enrolled into the Mind/Body Medicine Program at Evergreen State College, where I found a more holistic approach towards health and wellness. During my time at Evergreen State College, I studied several modalities that treat the emotional body, mental body, energetic body, as well as the physical body. I feel much more in alignment now as I offer different healing modalities within the holistic wellness practice called Sacred Journeys. The Flag Ship of the practice is a hypnotherapy session, called a Sacred Journey. However, sessions can also consist of other modalities to include, Access Bars, guided meditation, prayer, somatic release, energetic cleansing, and/ or yoga therapy. Sessions are by appointment only – please call to schedule.
Thank you for your interest in Sacred Journeys.
Much Love ~<3~
