Angel Attic Holistic Haven for Holistic and Wellness Therapy
If you’ve been connected with me via Mindful Adventures or Spa Vacation Experts, you know that I wholeheartedly believe in the power of wellness getaways to create a healthier lifestyle, especially at the amazing places I choose to work with in the U.S., Mexico and some new ones coming.
What do you do to keep that wellness focus going when you’re home?
Perhaps you go to yoga, meditate, practice your own forest bathing with a walk in the woods, hiking, massage or a number of your own ways to stay mindful of your health.
I’m starting a new series called ‘Wellness in Your Neighborhood,’ one that’s been on my mind (and to do list!) for longer than I’d like to say.
We’ll start with Michigan and then move on to other locations that I’ve been blessed to visit in New Jersey, Arizona, New Mexico and beyond. If you have a special place that you go to I’d be happy to hear about it as I continue to build momentum with this endeavor.
Let’s get started with Angel Attic Holistic Haven in Plymouth, Michigan
Angel Attic Holistic Haven, owned by Angela Walsh, offers a number of healing services including one called PEMF. I was curious about this service and met with Angela to learn more and experience a demonstration.
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field. The intention of Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy is re-energize damaged cells by inducing electrical changes within the cell to restore it to a normal, healthy state. This may also improve blood flow, increase oxygen capacity, circulation and boost cellular metabolism. One of the other benefits had to do with our bones and joints and a relaxed nervous system. Angela shared more about the benefits to the vital organs i.e. liver kidney, colon and that they’re able to rid themselves of impurities (detoxifying the body). PEMF Therapy is approved by the FDA. And, PEMF has been used in Europe for over 20 years for migraines, sports injuries, back and joint pain and other problems.
Personally, I was intrigued by PEMF due to an old track injury in my ankle and foot so I thought this would be helpful as I knew I needed better range of motion, strength and flexibility. The pain and stiffness, although not chronic, had been annoying and at times a feeling of being stuck…like my ligaments were entangled.
First, let me also share that Angela is compassionate, intuitive and extremely approachable. There’s a peacefulness that’s evident when in her presence.
Angela set up the machine for my demonstration, as you’ll see in the photo, and that only took a few minutes. I could hear the machine pulsing and yet it was a very light pulse on the designated area and this could be adjusted. This session lasted about 15 minutes.
What did I notice:
> I felt relaxed during the session
> There wasn’t much pain going into the session, so the test would be how it felt walking back to me Jeep.
> As I left I did notice that my foot felt slightly more flexible. This challenge isn’t chronic, however, this particular day it was a problem so that’s the reason for giving PEMF a chance.
I did go for a 2nd session at a time when this acted up and I noticed that it did feel better and my foot felt stronger.
It’s said that you may notice relief from only one session and the suggestion is to go for 5 – 10 sessions for more chronic conditions.
My intention is to go for a 3rd session and add Reiki and then reevaluate.
My Take Away:
I’d much rather practice holistic wellness and while I know that strength training could also help this particular problem, I also know that these PEMF sessions helped set more in motion. It’s a catch 22 at times. If you’re not feeling well, you don’t do those things you know could help like taking a walk, going to the gym, exercising at home, whatever action could help doesn’t happen because of pain, stiffness and weakness. So something like this, PEMF in this case, could be a bridge between where you are and where you want to be.
