Due to a stress- ful life-changing event, founder Christine Hayes, Physical Therapist, realized firsthand the true value of a healing team. Coopera- tive support – physical, emotional, psycho- logical, and spiritual – guide, soothe, and help restore body and mind. Why? Because discomfort is rarely isolated in one area. When someone is ill, or in pain, quality of life may suffer. Or, when someone is experi- encing a less than ideal quality of life, sick- ness and physical suffering could occur. The Integrated Healing Center provides collaborative care that is distinctively unique from other treatment approaches. A team of specialists and experts gather, support, and embrace each client multi-dimensionally through healing to a state of well-being. DR. NANCY MCCAREL A core professional group practice of The Integrated Healing Center is Nancy McCa- rel, PhD, and Associates. I interviewed Dr. McCarel at length and discovered an en- gaging, warm, thoughtful, and very caring professional who performs wonders for pa- tients. When asked to describe what she ac- complishes for patients, Dr. McCarel stated fluently, with an extraordinary sense of feel- ing, “We help people learn how to connect with themselves in a way to really promote their healing, and to help them feel better, and get better. People often come to us feel- ing vulnerable, scared about their symp- toms and difficult situations, sad, upset, and grieving. The atmosphere and treatments we provide give people a safe place to explore and help improve the way they cope with is- sues in life.” I asked Dr. McCarel why she located her practice within The Integrated Healing ARE YOU AWARE OF DR.
