Service to our country is an honor that one can never regret. But the terrors of war may leave indelible marks on the human soul that, if unattended, can lead to unintended malice and, ultimately, self-destruction. The challenges that veterans face are not insurmountable, if dealt with early.
Pathways for Veterans is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that is dedicated to healing the spiritual war wounds of the men and women of our military. Our mission is to create a safe environment where all veterans can experience being heard and are given the tools to repurpose themselves in mind, body and spirit.
Insights for Wellness is honored to be associated with Pathways for Veterans as a Pathways AS ONE Coalition member and for providing resources to help our local veterans. We offer bioenergetic wellness programs using the Total WellNES System, the RestStationTM music and vibrational therapy system, and individualized coaching.
Pathways for Veterans is a non profit and depends on corporate sponsorship and individual donations to cover the expenses of providing these services to our veterans. Here in eastern NC, we have multiple large military bases near us and thousands of active-duty and retired service men and women as our neighbors and friends. Being a former Marine myself, being married to a former Marine, and having a son who was a Marine and who was caught up in a serious IED explosion in Afghanistan makes this a cause that is close to my heart. Whether you use our services or not, PLEASE consider making a donation to Pathways for Veterans and supporting our veterans!
The RestStation™ is a treatment tool that uses music and vibration therapy and other cutting edge holistic treatment methods to help clients manage withdrawal symptoms, pain, emotional healing, and with emotional stigma traumas. The major benefit of the RestStation™ is the calming effect this system has on our clients. The system helps clients gain a general sense of inner-balance and calm racing thoughts, as well as reduce anxiety and stress.
Music therapy is a widely popular method for treating depression and anxiety as well as showing great advancements in brain injuries and dementia patients. Research has shown that music therapy is a motivating resource that helps deepen the client’s ability to engage in their treatment. The music therapy is composed with binaural beats and healing frequencies that triggers the body’s natural relaxation response.
In a treatment session with the RestStation™, the client is brought into a deep meditative theta state, which usually takes about fifteen minutes. Once the client reaches this state, it opens the ‘operating systems’ of the mind … one’s subconscious … allowing a ‘reprogramming’ using powerful guided meditations and positive affirmations. The guided imagery selections on the RestStation™ are designed to help address guilt, fear, shame and traumas associated as underlying issues for most men and women dealing with PTSD and emotional or physical traumas. The unique ‘echo’ effect enhances powerful and positive affirmations this combination helps the client overcome deeply rooted negative patterns of thoughts and behaviors.
Another feature to note is the biofeedback program which teaches a client techniques that they can use to help them manage their emotions and become happier. Physiological coherence is the synchronization and balance of the brain, heart and the nervous system known as “being in the zone.” There are several challenge levels to help clients achieve higher levels of coherence.
The RestStation™ includes the following features:
- Music therapy
- Sound frequencies
- Guided imagery
- Binaural beats
- Low frequency vibrations
- Coherent heart rhythm patterns
- Positive affirmations
