Metaphysical doctors while common on the west coast are few and far between on the east coast. The east coast environment and attitude is not conducive to metaphysical doctors; most move out of the area fairly quickly opting for more spiritual places like California, Arizona or Bali. Phoenixville is fortunate to have Bender Healing with one of the area's top metaphysical doctors.
We are more familiar with the term holistic practitioner, which can range from someone who took a weekend course in one of the healing tools to a yoga instructor. A metaphysical doctor has a PhD in holistic healing. They know a variety of tools to help heal at the spirit level.
Seeing a metaphysical doctor in addition to your medical doctor can be very useful when you want wellness for your whole being focusing in on body, mind and spirit. While medical doctors work at the body level and psychologists work at a mind level, the metaphysical therapists work at a spirit level. They use a combination of touch therapies and life coaching tools and good ones also specialize in prayer and meditation techniques. This spirit work relaxes your body and mind, improves relationships and your body's natural healing ability. This type of work can facilitate what we call miracles for some people even healed from years of pain that they thought they had to live with the rest of their life.
This unique work can not be pigeon holed into anything normal found in our region. People try to categorize the work as massage, personal training, life coaching, energy healer and medical intuition. It is a combination of all of these and more.
This different kind of wellness gets to the spirit of the matter. It is said that 80 percent of illness has a spiritual component. For example when a cancer is spiritual based, it will reoccur no matter how much the physical body is modified. The spirit is the leader in this case and is what needs to be addressed for holistic healing. A trained metaphysical doctor can detect the spirit disturbance even two years before cancer forms in the physical body.
What is the spirit body? Science has now shown that when we die we loose about an ounce of weight. This is the body’s spirit. A metaphysical doctor uses touch therapies, life coaching in combination with prayer and meditation to access with the spirit.
At Bender Healing, some clients come face to face with their creator while on the table, others get tapped into nature or their spirit guides, and others see bright lights. Mostly everyone leaves more relaxed and at peace. Yet some leave greatly disturbed ready for change as they now have met their spiritual issue which they can no longer deny. One client finally summarized saying, "You just have to experience the work to understand."
Also since Bender Healing believes in equipping their clients, they may come away with a new tool in their belt to help them face the world. For those metaphysical doctors who have talents in remote work, wellness sessions can also be phone consults from around the world, since the spirit is not limited by time or space. Bender Healing has effectively helped people thousands of miles away!
