Coaching & Integrated Massage Therapy

Coaching & Integrated Massage Therapy

Beatrice Appay is truly an all-encompassing gifted healer. I have been searching for over a year for help to heal a head injury and I found Beatrice. With each treatment, I feel my body more in balance with my nervous system, pain relief and overall function. I sleep well and feel more energetic. She went beyond the Cranio-Sacral Therapy my doctor recommended, as she is well versed in other bodywork such as massage and acupressure. Her diverse expertise helped her pick up liver and pancreas dysfunction. I am forever grateful.

The Appay Method Coaching

Is pain holding you back from thriving in life ? Is your Energy level going up and down? Are you feeling like a yoyo? Going from one extreme to the other? Did you try many avenues to solve your problems and found no real answers and solutions? You cannot lose weight despite your efforts and sleep poorly? Then, the Appay Method Coaching (AMC) is made for you.

It will empower you to take control of your life and be in the driving sit. It is grounded in practice and in the learning of scientifically proven transformative techniques and transformational tools.

The Appay Method Coaching begins with an intake and assessment session. The objective of this first session is a full evaluation of your health. This session will allow to identify priorities and we will design together a strategic plan for action in accordance with your aims and needs. If necessary, it is followed by an integrated holistic treatment to complete the evaluation. Then most AMC sessions will include:

  1.  an open-time dialogue and all the necessary time for clarifications and explanations as much as needed;
  2. the teaching of “a la carte’ self-healing practices such as Qigong, Yoga, Breathing techniques and meditation to create the safe grounds for a radiant physical, emotional and mental health. If you’re going through an illness, recovering from surgery, living with a chronic condition or  if you just want to lose weight or more to transform your life and get back for good into the driving sit for the next phase of your life, these practices will be the solid foundations of your transformation.
    Yoga and Qigong as much as the other ancient and modern self healing practices that the Appay Method teaches and combines, can become an integral part of your transformation and potentially hasten healing.
    They can include, as needed:
    1. acupressure and tapping
    2. restorative yoga
    3. healing qigong
    4. meditation
    5. breathing therapy
    6. cold exposure
    7.  and  more
