TCHPA Vision

Our vision is a world which values and nurtures wholeness and inspires peace and healing.

 

Who we are

We are a group of independent holistically-minded practitioners in the Southern part of the Twin Cities. We represent the very best qualified practitioners in the represented fields of practice in our geographic area.  We have maintained a smaller geographic area to better serve the communities of Eagan, Apple Valley, Mendota Heights, Rosemount, Burnsville, Lakeville, and the surrounding areas.  We have done this to create an authoritative directory of practitioners that you can trust, that will be convenient to you, and that have demonstrated the level of professionalism and dedication to client care required to be a member of this organization.

 

We are dedicated 

to working holistically.  What is holistic care?  The medical version of the Free Dictionary defines holistic care as:  “a system of comprehensive or total patient care that considers the physical, emotional, social, economic, and spiritual needs of the person; his or her response to illness; and the effect of the illness on the ability to meet self-care needs.”  What that means in practice is that each of us, as practitioners, recognize that your physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being do not exist in vacuums.  An issue that presents as a physical issue may have its cause in an emotional or spiritual blockage.  While the goal remains to help with the presenting issue, the focus of our work is to release the underlying cause, rather than apply a bandaid to the symptom.  We recognize that if a band-aid approach is taken, without releasing the underlying issue, that the issue may very well find another way to manifest itself (create a new problem).  

We also recognize that we do not exist in a vacuum as individual human beings, but rather we are all part of an ecology of life.  As you heal, learn, grow and change, that may affect other people in your life, the dynamics of your relationships.  It may affect your goals and your perceptions of the world around you.  In order to fully accept and integrate a change, even though that change is a positive one, the entire being must be prepared and in alignment with that change and the resultant changes in the ecology of your life.  Think of these changes as the ripples in a pond.  Your desired positive change is like the dropping in of the pebble; the impact on your relationships, work life, goals, perceptions and spirituality are like the ripples.
