Nurturing and Revitalizing the Elderly:
The wisdom of every culture has been held in the open hands of its Elders. For thousands of years, elders have been revered, sat on wisdom councils, and stewarded the collective knowledge of their time.
Something has shifted in our modern culture here in the United States. Often times our elderly are not respected and given places of honor in our families and communities. Their wisdom is forgotten. Sadly they are shut away and cut off from the very generations who need their presence and wisdom. Their experiences and the collective wisdom of a lifetime are not only forgotten by younger generations, but by the elders themselves.
I am passionate about working with the elderly on multiple levels. I help them remember who they are. I listen to their stories. I work with their bodies to help their bodies remember that health and living a vital life are available at any age. As they begin to feel better physically and are listened to and respected, their sense of worth, value, and of being loved goes up exponentially.
Family Constellations, Body Presencing™, & Chiropractic for the Elderly:
I inspire and empower elderly people to claim their place in their families, in their community, and in their society. One of the ways I do this is through physical body work and chiropractic techniques. I often find the simple act of being touched and having their muscles worked with is soothing, helpful, and empowering to them. As they begin to feel better physically, they oftentimes become open to taking a more active role in their families and in society.
Through Body Presencing, Chiropractic techniques, listening to the language of their body and their words, and through Family Constellation work I help the elderly make peace with their lives on three levels: past, present, and future.
A Sense of Purpose and Belonging:
The elderly need, just as we all do, to have a sense of purpose and belonging. Our sense of purpose changes as we age. At each passing decade, we as individuals in society re- evaluate our purpose. We have a need to look at what has changed, where we are going, what we can do, and how can we do it. These are all important questions that arise.
I help the elderly remember who they are, find a purpose and value that meets their place in society and the world, feel better physically, and help make their life’s wisdom accessible to them and to others. I specialize in helping the elderly re-conceptualize their life purpose and develop a sense of belonging regardless of their living circumstances and health conditions.

Caring created a free resource that provides comprehensive information on topics like financial support and care options that are available in St. Louis, Missouri. You can read more here.
