We are coming to understand health not as the absence of disease, but rather as the process by which individuals maintain their sense of coherence (i.e. sense that life is comprehensible, manageable, and meaningful) and ability to function in the face of changes in themselves and their relationships with their environment.

– Aaron Antonovsky

What is a saultogenic approach to healing?

The traditional approach to healing focuses on cognitive behaviors and symptoms.  There is an effort to suppress and fix behaviors or emotions.  This approach forgets to include the physical body and the living environment in its process.  A salutogenic approach asks to explore both the brain and the body and includes connecting to a wide embodiment of previously learned experiences and memories.  The living space plays a dynamic role in the data gathered by our nervous system that informs our behavior.

Our work includes identifying stressors in the living space that subconsciously inform and affect our every day living.  With careful attention to somatic cues, we seek to modulate the experiences in the home that are perceived as unsafe.
