The Show Goes On

Alison McLean

It's been awhile -  life happens. Some of you know I was diagnosed with rectal cancer right after Thanksgiving last year. But, you know what! The show goes on. After a crazy December of back to back procedures, MD visists, naturopath visits that all resulted in a surgery. The cancer is completely gone.  Now I'm back armed with new experiences, knowledge and lessons learned. Actually, I'm still learning lessons. It's been quite a journey.

Slowly returning back to my Yoga pracitce...

Slowly returning back to my Yoga pracitce...

Truth be told we are all going through our struggles at one time or another, one way or another. The physical representation maybe different, but some of the emotions we feel inside maybe quite similar. It's learning how to process and accept what we can not control, and take responsibility and action for what we can. This helps to avoid getting caught in an negative emotion cyclone. Anyways, I can go on and on... Rather, let's focus on specifically what you need, and how I can help. Here are some offerings of varying price points, time commitments and styles. Check it out find one or some that resonate, then take action!

Warmly,

Alison


Going through a surgery again reminded me how discombobulating the whole system and process is, and I'm a physical therapist and feel this way!! So I created a Surgical Care package for you or a loved one going through surgery (any surgery not just orthopedic). I'll help prepare for surgery, you will know what to do the day of surgery and will be guided immediately following surgery as well. For more details hop over here: Surgical Care

Supported bridge

I'm still running 1:1 sessions of many varieties. Hop over here to determine what fits you best:  Services. Schedule sooner rather than later since it is filling up quickly.

You guys know essential oils are a big deal to me. I was reminded of this following my surgery when I did not use any pain meds- just oils! It's like my secret arsenal of no toxic goodies that help my family and I with immunity, supporting our bodies and our minds. Our team is running an oil special this month! $25 Cash back following the purchase of the Premium Starter Kit. This is only good for this month, and only happens once a year (if that).  $25 will be applied as store credit following the purchase of the kit.

That's a Wrap

Alison McLean

Just like that 2017 is quickly coming to an end. On occasion, as we are hustling from one holiday party to the next, we glimpse one of our intentions or resolutions we set in the beginning of the 2017. It's easy to put it off again until 2018, especially if we did so for 11 months. However, I encourage you to take action now. Start the momentum into 2018 by listening to your needs, desires and goals.

Once you start taking action, it's easier to continue to put on foot in front of the other.  To help you on this journey I have a bunch of options to deepen your commitment and clearly decide what you want for yourself, and your loved ones for 2018.

Warmly,

Alison


One:One sessions

Finally get rid of your pain and discomfort

A session at Ignite is very different then the traditional PT setting. Each session is customized to your needs, whether it's an evaluation unraveling the root cause of your discomfort, bodywork, Yoga, visceral manual therapy, traditional physical therapy or essential oils. In your session you will finally figure out the source of your discomfort, and a plan to heal. You will never be handed off to an aid or assistant, or left alone while I check on another patient. To schedule an appointment just reply here, call (858) 248 2272, or schedule online: http://www.ignitewellnesssandiego.com/schedule-and-forms/

Mentoring or Transformation Sessions

No pain, but aren't feeling completely fulfilled? Or, are you unsure how to take your Yoga Teachings to the next level where you can actually make money? Work with me in person, or via zoom to release blocks holding you back. This work is not easy, but it is rewarding. Find strength, courage and confidence to explore ideas and dreams hidden deep within and make them a reality.
