Welcome to Omaha Integrative Care

At Omaha Integrative Care, we offer counseling or coaching, yoga, massage, nutritional services, acupuncture, and meditation or mind / body medicine classes.

One of the things that sets Omaha Integrative Care apart is that we're the only location in the region that has all of those services under one roof.

One of the things we hear often from our clients is that when People come in, they feel like they're coming into a Sanctuary.

We're very picky about, not only who works here, but what we offer. All of the products we offer, right now, are through Pulling Down the Moon, and their products are triple-tested and the highest quality.

We really just want to help you to enjoy life to the fullest.

What is integrative care?

Integrative care combines traditional western medicine with complementary therapies such as yoga, nutrition, acupuncture, massage and counseling. A defining component to integrative care is that the complementary treatments are research-based and not meant to take the place of traditional medicine, but to support the whole person during treatment. Most importantly, integrative care is about treating the whole person and looking at all aspects of life – physical, emotional and spiritual.

Mindful Moment: The Best Present is Being Present

Rate this post

Young Man Holding a Christmas CrackerDuring these last few days of wrapping presents, cleaning the house, preparing food and getting ready to be with family and friends the pull to be thinking about the past or future will be strong.  The busy-ness of getting ready and envisioning what the day should look like can be exhausting.  It can also make it more difficult for us to enjoy the time with family friends.  Before we know it, the day has passed and we haven’t been present in our relationships.

This week’s mindful moment is mindful communication or being present with those you love (and maybe those you struggle with).  This gift cannot be wrapped, is not shiny or techie.  It is a simple gift that will enhance everyone’s experience.

To listen mindfully:

  • Take a few breaths before you join a group or conversation, setting the intention to let go of what was and the unknown of what will be.
  • When lists and worries start to run through your mind, gently remind yourself that you are just listening and being with the people around you.  Jon Kabat-Zinn often says we have become human doings versus human beings.
  • You may even want to say silently to yourself, “just this moment” and bring your attention back to what is being said.
  • Notice the feelings evoked from the conversation (whatever they may be) and instead of immediately reacting or responding, gently notice them so that you can respond mindfully or continue to just listen.

Sit back, breathe and enjoy the time moment by moment.  Happy Holidays!

Mindful moments are short exercises to be used throughout your week to relax, integrate and center yourself.  Inspired by the wisdom traditions and science, mindful moments are meant to be accessible and simple enough for anyone to practice.  Many teachers and leaders in integrative medicine have influenced our approach to mindful moments. Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”  Look for the weekly mindful moment every Monday.  May it support you in finding your center to live life to the fullest.

Mindful Moment: Do You Hear What I Hear?

Mindful Moment: Do You Hear What I Hear? 5.00/5 (100.00%) 2 votes

Christmas Tree in the SnowHow often are we not listening?  It’s easy to ignore the information and gifts our senses pick up because we tend to constantly be on our way to somewhere else.  We miss what is around us in the present moment.

The Christmas song “Do You Hear What I Hear?” begins with a message that is carried by a whisper on the wind. The message is carried from the wind to a lamb until it is spread to “people everywhere.”  We need to listen closely to hear a whisper on the wind.  If we aren’t present, we may miss some meaningful messages in life.

As we prepare to celebrate Christmas, however that looks for each of us, try listening for your mindful moment practice.  For just a few moments, really listen to what you can hear around you. It may the wind against the window, the hum of a heater or chatter down the hall. Whatever it is, just notice it.  When your attention strays, simply bring it back to just listening.

For a more formal practice, you may choose to listen mindfully to your favorite music (preferably music without lyrics), the crackle of a warm fire or the settling of your house. Set aside time to listen.  You may hear something more meaningful than you expect.

Mindful moments are short exercises to be used throughout your week to relax, integrate and center yourself.  Inspired by the wisdom traditions and science, mindful moments are meant to be accessible and simple enough for anyone to practice.  Many teachers and leaders in integrative medicine have influenced our approach to mindful moments. Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”  Look for the weekly mindful moment every Monday.  May it support you in finding your center to live life to the fullest.
