Mind-Body Health Pathways

In addition to being board certified in Neuromusculoskeletal and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine and Family Medicine, Dr. Daniel Gibbons and Dr. Jacey Goddard are board certified in Integrative Medicine which includes the Mind-Body approach. This wellnesss-based approach offers various pathways to one’s Health, which include emotional and spiritual connections to the physical body. These sessions are conducted virtually, and use methods including meditation guidance, counseling, and Osteopathic principles. We have found that these Mind-Body Pathways support the overall Health and allow for greater self-awareness and fulfillment. This approach can be often be more effective than hands on treatment of the physical body in addressing some issues by creating more lasting foundational connections to one’s Health and one’s Self. These include, but are not limited to, pain control, autoimmune and nervous system problems including long covid, stress management, and life path decisions.


Dr. Daniel Gibbons – Body-Mind-Spirit Integration Session

These sessions are designed to access the Health within our bodies and how it integrates with mind and spirit. The beginning of the session involves discussion of what is happening in your life and setting intention for what you desire to unfold in the moment and in your life. You will be asked to lie down in a comfortable position. Dr. Gibbons will then communicate what he is perceiving within you and the spiritual and therapeutic forces at work. In these sessions, awareness is brought to the areas that are calling attention and allowing one to perceive the indwelling Health so it can reach its full expression. During these sessions it is normal to feel strong emotions, physical sensations, and spiritual upliftment. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activity and other healing modalities within 72 hours of one these sessions. During this time after a session, one will continue to feel the effects and benefits as the therapeutic forces continue to work.
