I am often asked, “What is it you do?” I am always struck by that question. It should be simple, after all I talk about my work all of the time. I am a certified Kalos Health Facilitator and what that means is that I assist people in “getting to the cause” of dis-ease (lack of ease) in their Body/Mind. Sounds simple doesn’t it? Interestingly most people do not know what I mean. Interesting but not surprising. You see most people go to a healthcare provider and that provider looks at them as a statistic. They come in with a symptom and the provider looks at them and based on the majority of people that present with that symptom they treat them according to the majority. This is what we have become accustomed to so we do not see anything wrong with it. Well I do!
What if we went to our Health care facilitator and they said to us “I need to get an overall view of the current state of your body, I am going to do a non-invasive check up using muscle testing and trigger point testing, using your body’s meridian system to identify the deficiencies or weaknesses in your body”. Right away you know they are working with your body, you are not a statistic. Next they let you know that based on what you have presented and your original concern, your body is communicating to you that it is not in balance. It does not stop there, the facilitator then asks your body, again using muscle testing, to communicate what it’s first priority is to correct the imbalance. Sounds good so far, right? Are you getting the idea that this is different?
Based on the body’s priority’s in healing the facilitator follows and corrects each priority as it arises. In this way the client and their body are in control of what is needed for optimal health at all times. Our bodies are so intelligent and they know what they need to be well, they simply need a facilitator that can communicate what is needed. A facilitator that has the intent to “get to the cause” in the most efficient, effective manner possible.
I work with clients who come in with all sorts of concerns, issues and complaints. No issue, concern or complaint is too small or too large and none is more important than another. You see the issue, concern and complaint are connected to an individual who is looking for assistance, they each have an underlying cause and that means, as a facilitator, I want to assist my clients in getting to that cause and correcting it. I work to correct, shift, move and clear the imbalance in the Body/Mind. When the cause is identified I assist my client in immeasurable ways by moving them closer to balance and wellness.
Most of my clients have been to several providers before coming to see me. They have been treating the symptom and not the client as an individual. You see once the cause is addressed and dealt with the problem no longer exists. This is true healing!
As you can see my answer to the question “What do you do?” is not a simple or short one. My work is so complex, yet simple, and so far reaching that to casually say, “ I help people get well by getting to the cause” although good, does not speak to the profound healing that is possible with what I do.
There are a few Kalos Health Facilitators in the US and Canada but we need more. I see this as the way we need to be healing now and in the future and that means we need more facilitators. I am currently working on developing an educational center to train Kalos Health facilitators and lay people so that we can begin to heal on a greater level. The education center will be located in the greater Seattle area and I hope to provide continued training for those wanting to become certified.
Currently I am offering Kalos courses in Shoreline, WA and I hold a monthly group to support those who are currently taking courses. For information on upcoming courses and workshops please visit my website at www.inlightenwellness.com.
I also work with individuals looking to heal on all levels at my office in Shoreline, WA.
If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, I welcome your ideas.
