Josh’s Top 3 Ways to Keep Your Baby Happy and Healthy in the New Year

Happy New Year folks! With this time of year comes the battle of the various colds, flus, and other viruses for adults and kiddos alike. The following are 3 tips to help keep your baby happy and healthy.

*Note: If your baby is too little to do these tips then that means mom is doing all of these things. It’s these basics that keep us healthy in so many ways.

Josh Tip #1:

Keep your baby’s rhythm consistent with lots of sleep. Slow down and do less .

Josh Tip #2:

Feed your baby good, healthy food and no sugar. Sugar weakens their immune system tremendously.

Josh Tip #3:

Lots of exercise. Outside time while bundled up is the best to help them thrive in many ways

Keep Baby Happy and Healthy

If this doesn’t work please remember babies are built to get sick. Becoming sick can help their immune system get stronger to fight off all of these powerful illnesses. Getting sick gives their body this information it needs to clean out their house and purge out toxins. Sickness also helps their body create more embryonic stem cells that their body will then differentiate into what they really needs to continue to grow and heal. So this is why after being sick your babies and kids will go through a growth spurt. As adults we have our own personal growth spurts. All of this is why I find it so great to work with babies, kids and all people when they are sick. Their body is trying to do the work and I help them heal and regain balance at fuller level. I highly recommend a session during sickness for everyone, especially babies who are just learning how to use their immune system.

Helping Your Child Heal

Helping Your Child Heal

By Josh Overcash

All children deserve to thrive. When it comes to our young children we will do anything for them when they need it. There are many options out there for treating pediatric health conditions. One route to take in helping your child heal is working through Accunect and Craniosacral Fascial therapy. These treatments have been profound in helping children get through some really hard childhood conditions. Conditions such as: major sleep issues, complex viruses & bacterias (RSV, pertussis, croup, chronic ear infections, etc…) lots of child digestion issues or baby reflux/colic, torticollis, nursing issues, mental/physical delays and so much more. 

Accunect

Accunect supports a balanced state of being on all levels (physically, mentally, and emotionally) increasing the functional intelligence at a cellular level. While the cranial work frees up any restriction that keeps the body stuck, to support increasing the function within the nervous system, organs and endocrine system. Which supports movement at a cellular level and helps the brain breathe again. Through these therapies every cell of the body is in the highest state of healing mode, the body gets over the condition and stays in the high healing place. That is where the growth really happens. From a deep place of optimal health. Kids just bounce out of the state of imbalance easily. They are then able to thrive and grow up from a balanced state of being!

Starting Healing Early

Imagine a 9 month old baby that isn’t sleeping deep/long that also gets scared easily around people and sensitive digestion. All of this often gets sorted out in a handful of sessions. With a little creativity you can visualize what that might be like for that person if those common childhood conditions continues as they grow into adulthood. Allergies, IBS, anxiety, migraines, chronic fatigue, possibly autoimmune, who knows? That is hypothetical because we don’t usually track children that way. So let’s just support them the best way possible and as quickly as possible.

Supporting Primary Caregiver

Another common aspect that is necessary to support is the primary caregiver (usually the parents). In a household everyone feeds off of everyone els’s energy. Therefore a parent that is stressed out will stress out a child. The ancient Chinese saying, “If the baby is hungry, feed the mother” has many aspects of truth. When a parent radiates out, ‘I’ve got you, I am here for you and I still love you’ that one of the most important factors. Brene Brown says it best, “Children are not perfect, they are wired to struggle. It is our job to show that they are still worth it and loved.” No one can do that all the time if they are depleted and stressed out. To recognize that children are supposed to struggle in order to grow is a big eye opener for many people and supports a positive shift in their perspective.

All in all assess where life is for you and your family and what the stressors are in your world. Work on overcoming those stress factors and if they are stuck, that’s where the work of Accunect and Craniosacral Fascial Therapy can help out tremendously. If there are specific conditions your baby is dealing with such as: sleep issues, digestive problems, IBS, or any of the issues mentioned above please give me a call I would be happy to help your baby heal. The sooner it gets resolved, the easier it is to resolve and the least amount of stress for everyone.

Feeling the Shift after a Session with Josh Overcash

By: Josh Overcash

Before we examine what happens after a session, let’s look briefly at what happens during a healing session with Josh.  Modalities like Accunect, BodyTalk, and Craniosacral Fascia Therapy are used to achieve optimal balancing of the whole body/mind complex.  Most clients experience deep and profound rest and relaxation.  The whole body calms down and goes into healing mode. The nervous system begins to operate at a wavelength similar to sleep. This is how everyone’s body heals naturally, it must first slow down and relax.  While the body is deeply relaxed, Josh is utilizing techniques that promote wellbeing and strengthen communication pathways in the body. This process is tailored to the client’s specific needs at the time.

Clients leave Josh’s office feeling refreshed right down to the cellular level and ready to take on life in a more efficient and healthy way.  It then becomes easier for clients to take responsibility for changing any lifestyle patterns that may be hindering their continued growth and healing.  For the rest of the day, or the next few days, or even over the course of a couple of weeks, the impacts of the session may continue to be felt.  Clients report a range of experiences- from the continued overall relaxation to profound “aha” moments of recognition that life is improving on all levels (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually). The experience someone has can be subtle or completely obvious. Sometimes life just feels like it has an easier flow to it and sometimes the client feels a huge transformation.  While often times pain relief and other shifts are immediate, sometimes it takes a few hours or even days for the body to fully process the session and symptoms may intensify before resolving.  For example, a fever may spike and then break, inflammation swells and then goes down, or fascia continues to unwind and release tension when the client goes to bed.  How can a client better understand this phenomenon?  Some of the factors in the body processing after a session include how deeply seated the imbalances are, what is ready to shift, sensitivity of the client, and environmental factors in the client’s home and personal life.

Clients enjoy working with Josh at Spring Integrative Health for both acute and chronic issues as well as enhancing overall health and wellbeing.  Following are some brief testimonials from some of his clients.

 

  • “Feeling more balanced, more calm and more present.” M.R.
  • “Feel centered, hopeful and supported” G.F.
  • “I feel like my health is being taken care of. Dramatic shifts and releases from sessions” J.D.

Tune in and let go. This is the support that happens on all levels for the whole body.

Gaining Your Health Back

By: Josh Overcash

We all experience a different reality based on our past experiences, our beliefs, and filters of how we see the world.  This reality is actually a perceived reality, and no two people experience it the same.  Our beliefs about the world affect our physiology and by changing our perceptions and beliefs, we can profoundly shift our health and well-being.  Misperception of reality can create stress in the body.  Dysfunctional thought patterns and belief systems contribute to acute and chronic disease as well as decreased life satisfaction and mental health.  Current research shows how thoughts affect cell structure.  How then, do we go about shifting our deeply held understanding of life, our health, the world we live in, and our relationships with others (and ourselves)?  It can take a lifetime of focusing on personal growth and development for a person to achieve a truly balanced state of being.  To shift things faster, you may want to enlist the help of a trained professional in energy medicine balancing techniques, like Spring Integrative Health’s Josh Overcash.  Josh is trained in Accunect, BodyTalk, and Craniosacral Fascial Therapy.  

How can energy medicine can help shift thought patterns and in turn, improve health and well-being?  Quantum physics and consciousness inform the modalities that Josh works with.  Using a special form of biofeedback, he is able to identify where his clients are ready to move forward. Then, by balancing the brain and the nervous system while holding space for deep relaxation, transformation can occur. 

How does this actually work?  Gentle tapping stimulates the nervous system and the heart meridian system and creates a ripple effect throughout the body to update awareness and bring the body into more balanced state.  Each session is specific to the person on the table.  Using a sophisticated protocol system, Josh is able to pinpoint and focus the session where the client needs it most- physically, mentally, and/or emotionally.  Sometimes there is crossover between the modalities themselves and levels of the body/mind complex involved in a specific concern- for example shoulder pain may be addressed by releasing soft tissue with craniosacral fascial therapy, then helping a client release a deep-seated belief about not feeling safe that creates “guarding” in the shoulders and chest, and finally balancing the organs that are related to meridians that run through the shoulder.  

Josh’s heart-centered approach and calm demeanor make him an effective witness to the change his clients experience during their sessions.  Always inspiring his clients to live better and become witness to their own life situations, Josh helps people move forward with confidence and without judgement.  

Clients leave Josh’s office feeling centered, aware, and at a higher level of consciousness.  This balanced and relaxed state of being encourages further healing even after the client has left the office!  After all, it is when the body is relaxed and the brain is in balance that truly spontaneous healing occurs.
