JUNE~JULY 2015: I've Got Your Back!


Act Now! Raising funds by Saturday, June 20th, 2015

Our friend and colleague Rita Severinghaus works with a women's cooperative based in Cotui, Dominican Republic and has asked for our support...
"Dear Friends,
It is with great excitement that I write to you to share the story and successes of the members of Creaciones Ecologicas La Colonia (CREELA), a women's cooperative based in Cotui, Dominican Republic, and ask for your support.
For ten years, the members of CREELA have been recycling used plastic bags into unique, handmade crocheted totes.  In addition to earning a living, proceeds from their craft stimulate the local economy, and enable the women to attend school and earn creditworthiness.
In 2014, members of CREELA entered a rigorous application process to attend the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market, a nonprofit that creates economic opportunities for and with folk artists worldwide.  Out of 416 artisans from around the world, only 150 applicants were chosen. CREELA was one.  The women made their way to New Mexico and sold 250 bags in just one day!
In July, two members of CREELA will return to Santa Fe where they aim to sell over 300 handcrafted bags.  In collaboration with DR Projects and friends in the United States, CREELA is raising funds to cover travel costs of approximately $3,000.
With your help, we can reach our goal to raise these funds by June 20th.  Your contribution of any size will go directly toward the cost of airfare, meals, accomodations, and transportation.
I hope we can count on you to continue empowering the women of CREELA."
With love and gratitude,
Rita Severinghaus
Dominican Republic Projects, www.drprojects.org  creeladr.org

The History of IIM:   As I was stepping away from my Critical Care Practice, I listened to a tape of Deepak Chopra's about fulfilling your desires by setting intentions.  My primary thought was setting an intention to change the healthcare system and create a holistic practice that looked at body, mind, and Spirit.  Everything that's happened has happened from there!  The journey to our IIM practice today has been filled with intentions set and fulfilled...
In October of 2010 we had yet another dream fulfilled when the doors to our current office opened!  Read more of Kim's story:  www.integrativemedicine4u.com/


The Community of Practitioners at IIM:   While holding the intention of creating a community of holistic caregiving, each of my colleagues held the vision with me until the day we began at 205 Townepark Circle.  A lot of divine intervention along the way has brought together the amazing group that is here today...  Kimberly May~Inspire Wellness, Jerry Scott~Holistic Care, Cynthia Bowling~Advanced Integrative Therapy, Angie Megibben~Light Works Yoga, Nancy Langan~Langan Massage Therapeutics, Betty Greaver~Healing Health Concepts, Dorothy Henning~Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, Reverend Yvonne McCoy~Life Transformation Institute, Melanie Tinsley~Certified Yamuna Body Rolling Practitioner, Victoria Hayden~Metaphysical Meditation, Dr. Clifford Kuhn~The Laugh Doctor, Jennifer Hubbard~IIM Newsletters, Cynthia Burke Goff~Queen of Client Services... together, we are commited to partnering with you in your pursuit of health.

What we offer you:   We are here to help you achieve your optimal health in mind, body, Spirit, emotions and energy.  Our healing oriented approach is based on physical, psychological/emotional, spiritual and energetic principles.  We know that healing is innate and we will help identify potential barriers to your optimal health.  You are a partner in our care for you.  No one knows your body as well as you.  We honor and respect you and your body's wisdom.  We want to get to know you and help support you through many facets of health and wellbeing, not just disease care.  As Sir William Osler said, "It is much more important to know what sort of patient has a disease than what sort of disease a patient has."

We hope you'll join us soon!

SAVE YOUR FACE!  
Saturday, June 20th ~ 10-11:30 AM
The practice of Yamuna is a great way to begin listening to your body.  It is a stress free way to start positive dialog between your mind and your body, increasing your body awareness and sustainability.  Using specially designed Yamuna balls you can find relief from pain...
