Emotional Healing


Dr. Gil Alvarado, N.D., L.Ac., Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM) is a naturopathic physician and acupuncturist with over 35 years experience helping people improve their health.

Emotional healing can take place on many levels and effect a wide range of areas of a person’s life. Unlike the other categories listed in the “Methods” section of this web site, emotional healing is not a single method by itself, but draws from a few different methods, including mental imagery, acupuncture, body work (tui na) and others. It is mentioned here because if and when it is needed it can bring about profound, deep and life healing changes.

The approach used by Dr. Gil when someone wants and needs this level of healing is to help to clear the emotional blocks, scars and impediments to a person’s well-being and healing.

We all understand that if we get a cut or scrape on our skin, the automatic and natural action of our body is to heal it. If it doesn’t heal it means something is blocking or keeping the body from doing what it would normally do. The same principle is true in our emotional lives. If there is a blockage that prevents our healing or happiness, or if the scar is too deep, it must be cleared to allow our emotional healing to occur.

If you feel you need and would benefit from healing on this level, tell Dr. Gil. He will guide you on a program for you to clear the blocks and help you achieve your healing and regain your happiness.
