Dr Borden views health care as a partnership. She helps people regain their
personal power by coaching her clients in the subtle art of paying attention
to their physical and psyco-spiritual states of being.
Each time a client returns for a treatment, she spends time speaking with
them and investigating their unique experience of all their systems. This
information, together with pulse diagnosis and tongue diagnosis enables her
to custom design a treatment that will help them. With each treatment you
become more informed and more observant of your own particular life
experience. This coaching, in addition to diet, exercise/movement and
lifestyle suggestions helps create movement in whatever patterns of
disharmony have brought you in for treatment. The goal of working with Dr
Borden is to not need to keep returning as frequently. After several
treatments, this new pattern of “unstuck” energy is able to sustain it’s
flow longer. Most people return for “tune-ups” at change of seasons or times
of particular life challenge.
Some of the common remarks after a treatment with Dr Borden include: “My
face is glowing. People are asking me what I’ve done.” People often report
feeling much easier in themselves, more relaxed than they have ever been.
Able to listen to their own inner knowledge. “I was never able to meditate
before and now I am able to sit quietly with myself and just be”.
