Welcome to the VHHC online. My name is Seamus ('Shay-Muss'), director of the VHHC and resident Holistic Therapist. For our entire adult lives, our team has been continuously learning and practicing various therapeutic "alternative" health modalities and together we treat most areas of human suffering.
I started early on and have been non-stop learning my passion for over two decades. It began with learning Shiatsu, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Qi Gong, Meditation, Polarity Therapy, Japanese diagnostics, and Reiki. More recently I've integrated Tui Na Massage, Cupping, Hakomi, Body Talk, Life Coaching, Chinese Medicine Diagnostics, Active Release, and Hypnotherapy.
We all have our reasons for getting on this path. My passion for the healing arts started when I was seriously ill at the age of 18. I won't go into the details here, but I'll say that through my desire to get better and through my faith in the healing arts, I learned three important things:
- There is no end to what can be learned and applied to the betterment of one's health. True dedication is the key.
- There are countless holistic approaches out there that (especially when combined) excel far beyond what most would believe in treating the causes AND symptoms of some of the most serious diseases/conditions. And few people realize the myriads of effective alternative options they have.
- Treatment is only half the battle. You need to "learn to fish" in the end, because (here's the hard pill to swallow) most health problems are created by the individual, whether they realize it or not. We must take responsibility for our part in creating what we're going through.
If you truly want to feel better and believe that you can, then I invite you to experience a truly holistic approach to your health. From treatment and education, to on-going support and changing your stubborn destructive patterns, we will work together on the Three Arenas to address the Cause AND it's affects. Trust me, there is no need to go on living in unnecessary pain and it is never too late to begin your healing journey. Once you know how you did your part to create or perpetuate your health problem (whether it's as serious as cancer, as debilitating as an auto-immune disorder, or chronic pain), you then have the power to take matters into your own hands along with the right help by your side. We are incredible beings, capable of miracles. You need to believe that and be ready and willing to do something about it. You CAN feel better than you do (on all levels), it CAN last, and you don't have to do it alone.
