Welcome to Everspring Health a new lifestyle, health and healing cooperative serving Minneapolis, St. Paul and the greater Twin Cities metro area. Our focus is on developing a community healthcare resource where health, wellness and quality of life are the same ambition of holistic (whole life) health and healing programs. Everspring practitioners serve as your advocate for better quality of life and more effective use of health and healing resources. Everspring Health's programs are custom designed to each individual's needs, including supporting any current medical program, but specifically designed to accomplish your goals for improved quality of life. Direct clinic service resources may include acupuncture, tuina medical massage (acupressure), dietary therapy, herbal therapy, exercise therapy and lifestyle consulting. Our services are available to the general public and we are currently accepting cooperative memberships for those interested in supporting our mission and benefiting from more convenient access to service.
2012 has been a big year for us as we work to expand our membership and grow into the full capacity our model is designed to embrace. Our ambition is to continue to expand our service offering to present the next generation of integrated qualified medical services including chiropractic and physical therapy among many more supportive health services to the Minneapolis/St. Paul communities. If healthcare is to truly be revolutionized it must be begin with the partnership between the practitioner and the client. We are the first of a kind healthcare cooperative where health advocacy is the core around which we will build the model for the next era in healthcare. We are looking forward to offering daily living programs (yoga, tai chi/qi gong, meditation, cooking classes, biking/hiking trips, retreats, etc.) via our Everspring Living resources bringing our model closer to the lives of our clients.
Examples of our programs
Detailed constitution based daily living programs – Everyone has certain tendencies or patterns from which they approach most daily practices. These tendencies are what make each individual unique with regards to their talents and capabilities but they also tend to lead towards most of the chronic symptoms and disease patterns as well. By identifying and helping our clients understand their constitution they can begin to understand their own tendencies thus allowing for their talents to be maximized all the while tendencies for illness can be significantly reduced. This then begins the practice of actual preventive medicine, where quality of life care becomes a practical principled system from which to work rather than just throwing darts in the supplement isle hoping to stumble onto something that might be useful. We help you understand all the opportunities and then work with you to develop a lifestyle that supports your goals for your best life.
Surgery preparation - We help our clients develop a plan for surgery preparation and post op recovery for when they get back home. This can help shorten recovery time allowing for a more pleasant experience, a more complete recovery and shorter down time from work.
Chronic disease support – We develop programs that use proven techniques to address many chronic conditions addressing many of the most pressing symptoms that may interfere with quality of life. We help many people who experience digestive disorders (GERD, IBS, colitis, Crohn's, gluten sensitivity), woman's health, weight-loss, chronic hives, among so many others.
Pain management – These programs can range from simple post workout soreness (thus shortening recovery time) to joint pain to chronic back pain to conditions like Fibromyalgia, EDS, Chronic Fatigue, headaches, TMJ, etc.
Quality of life programs – Some clients are looking for greater refinement, the opportunity to do more with less to experience life at a personally optimized level. We help clients develop programs that support daily living lead to better experiences of life whatever those goals or intentions might be. We work in partnership to discuss opportunities with clients and then develop a plan to create the desired experiences.
The pursuit of more refined personal health and quality of life requires that we shift our paradigm to a proactive partnership with the natural course of our lives. We must understand our own tendencies and the tendencies of the natural cycles of which we are often aware of but all too often ignore. By changing the way we enter into our day and our journey for better quality of life the process becomes more personalized and far more realistic. When entering into a personal commitment towards greater quality of life if we keep in mind the thoughts below it is likely that we find that they help contribute to the effectiveness of our efforts.
Be positive – In this modern world we are far too often told or too often decide for ourselves that life is a downhill experience. The truth is no one has a corner on the market for predicting your reality. Enter into your day as if the whole world is available as a resource to create the experience of peace and prosperity you desire. The benefit of pursuing quality of life is that there is always something we can do to make our day a little better and in many cases we can continue to refine that experience for as long we would wish.
Be realistic – As human’s we have a great talent to visualize the “ideal” reality in our minds. Too often, however, our vision is slightly skewed from the natural reality. It is certainly appropriate to have a vision of what we wish to accomplish but we must also be flexible in how that reality ultimately manifests in our daily lives. We must acknowledge that the governing force within our lives comes from nature and it is our responsibility to harness that force in the pursuit of greater balance. So when we decide improved quality of life is something that is important to us we need to be realistic about our expectations
Be responsible – Engage in the process. A good support system for health and quality of life will work with us to empower ourselves to make decisions and take actions that pay off. However, no matter how talented our support staff may be they cannot do it for us.
Be observant – Truly knowing what one wishes to accomplish requires observation. We need to know where we are now and where we would wish to be for any program to be successful. Improving our ability to be observant is a skill that will pay off manyfold and throughout most any area of our lives.
Be patient – When working to refine our daily living we need to keep in mind that it is daily living not a procedure it is a process. We have trillions of cells in our body so we should not assume that one workout, one meal or one treatment will solve our challenges. It takes time for our body to read the signals that we want it to change and then to have our cells turn over. The rule of thumb is that any commitment we make to change our bodies is 90 days and then to add one year on the end of that date to where our body will adjust to the “new you”. So if we lose a pound of fat it will take at least one year from the last day of burning up that pound for the body to adjust. Be patient!
Be disciplined – We need to set ourselves up for success. We need to be disciplined in our efforts to not only show up to our visits with our practitioners but to create an environment at home and work where we can succeed. Being disciplined in the beginning leads to practical lifestyle integration within a reasonably short period of time where the investment compounds thus providing substantially more effective and more permanent results.
Be persistent - Each day, every day is a new day, a new opportunity but also a new commitment we must make. What we accomplished yesterday was great because it got us to today but what we wish to experience tomorrow must come from how we live our life today. As Einstein said "Nothing happens until something moves" meaning that the actions we take lead us to results that we experience. A peaceful and productive life is an action not a destination. If we want peace, we must be peaceful. If we want productivity, we must be productive.
Be present – Enjoy the day. Live each day as if it was our only measure of our life because that is exactly what it is. Our lives are the aggregating experience of the each moment stored in the memory held in our bodies. The only opportunity we have to shift this experience in a direction we prefer is to focus on how we are living in this very moment. When we choose to embrace our true nature and to share that experience with those around us the only result can peace and prosperity.
Everspring Health’s service portfolio is designed to focus on personalized results for each client. When you stop in to visit you will find our approach to be comforting balanced by a distinct interest in understanding your experience. Our responsibility is to be an advocate for your health which requires finding a balance between understanding your goals and advocating for opportunities you might not yet be aware of with regards to your health. You will find that to gain a holistic viewpoint we ask a diverse series of questions to help us gain an effective perspective from which to begin your customized program. We will care about your everyday lifestyle because that is likely the most significant factor in what you are experiencing.
When considering preventive, rehabilitative and quality of life healing protocols the focus is less on which therapy or practice is “mandatory” and more on which therapy or practice is optimal given the needs of the client. Not everything is a nail needed to be pounded back into place; there are many therapies or practices that achieve similar results. What is important, and a significant factor in seeking long-term results, is the strategy that is used to effectively integrate therapies and practices into your daily life. Understanding this truth Everspring practitioners focus on achieving optimal results in balance with the most effective investment of time, money and effort.
Everspring clients benefit from service programs that focus on three key benchmarks within an individual’s life – stress, diet and sleep. These three observation points provide a distinct feedback system to both our practitioners as well as to the client. By observing stress, diet and sleep clients have something from which to gauge their daily experience while from a clinic standpoint these three factors will reflect the client’s current condition and will reflect progress as these experiences are refined. By rooting our programs in real life factors Everspring practitioners can build a more effective program that is less invasive, more affordable and the results end up being more empowering to the client because they improve daily life. The Everspring approach is similar to trying to untie a knot versus pulling or cutting to address key intentions.
Once we have established a dialog acknowledging the roll of stress, diet and sleep your practitioner will then seek to integrate more detailed or specific therapies that further support or sometimes take lead within an individual’s program. By taking this approach Everspring programs can fit within anyone’s lifestyle as well as working alongside, or in support of, any current medical program the client may be utilizing. Our service objective is to optimize one’s experience, namely their quality of life, rather than trying to fit one’s lifestyle or medical program into a mold that may not be entirely appropriate.
This focus on appropriateness and customization is what allows us to truly engage each client in their own experience and help them to become empowered in their own health and their lives as a whole. Health does just happen and it cannot be imposed even by the best practitioners. The pursuit of health is a partnership between clients and practitioners and this is the service you can expect when you come to visit with us. We seek to understand your experience, your perspective of that experience and then we develop a program with the resources you specifically need, explain why these resources are beneficial and what to expect as your program continues.
