The Appay Method Coaching & Integrated Massage Therapy

Aging Well 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.

The Appay Method Coaching 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.

When necessary, and in particular with serious cases, the Appay Method Coaching,  will start with an Intake session for an energetic evaluation of your situation, followed by an integrated treatment to complete the evaluation. Then most AMC sessions will include:

  1. a first part dedicated to a time of open communication, the building of trust and in depth teaching about what you need to learn to heal and feel better;
  2. a second part dedicated to self-healing practices that are well established and that can offer physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages. If you’re going through an illness, recovering from surgery, living with a chronic condition or  if you just want 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 ground and roots of your transformation.
    Based on science, yoga and qigong as much as other ancient and modern practices , the Appay Method 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
