My name is Mary Ruth Velicki. I write and speak about holistic healing and spirituality in a clear and practical way. I share from experience. I have personally healed through debilitating pain and suppressed trauma using a holistic approach, and I work with patients as an integrative physical therapist. I write about all aspects of healing — moving through chronic pain, healing the body-mind, and growing in spiritual awareness. All profits are used to provide more support for people on a healing journey.
I was working as a physical therapist and university instructor when pelvic pain (IC/PBS) pulled me out of my regular life. The pain was debilitating and I worked for almost a decade to heal. I received help from gifted professionals from Western, Eastern and complementary sides of medicine, and I took courses in holistic bodywork and energy work. Over the years, I learned how tune in to the body-mind-spirit connection and use it to heal on all levels. It was a process, but it was definitely worth it. I am now pain free without medications, and I live with a sense of peace and spiritual connection.
Seven years into healing, I began speaking about holistic healing and working with patients combining my physical therapy skills with the holistic bodywork and energy work that helped me to heal. Through all these interactions I learned my experience is not unique and healing has universal characteristics. I share these concepts through my writing and speaking to provide inspiration and inspiration for anyone on a healing journey.
I healed from Interstitial Cystitis using a holistic approach. In this section I share my experiences as a patient/therapist to help others tune in to the body-mind-spirit connection to heal from this condition.
As I healed, my sense of spiritual connection grew, and spontaneous information began flowing in. I share these short reflections and quotes on this spiritual blog.
In this recent talk, I use my personal experience to summarize the three main aspects of holistic healing.
