The Healers Café

Hi, it's Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) and I want to welcome you to the Healers Cafe. I am so excited to be doing this series of interviews and what I'll be doing is, is asking all kinds of healthcare practitioners, doctors, healers of all types, to really share with all of you their experience, why they became healers, what called them what they think about this being a healer thing. Is it, a thing? Who's really healing in this, what they've experienced from their their interaction with clients and patients and what the takeaways and understanding of what the process of healing is all about and the process of life. So that's the essence of what I'm doing. I'm hoping that this will serve also for patients that have issues and are looking for different ways of approaching it. * De-Registered, revoked & retired after 30+ years of practice.

Highlights from today's episode include:

 

Shannon Leggett 
if I was able to help them treat their chronic stress, help them implement some lifestyle changes, and I would be better at it. Their pain would be better, I would be more effective and an efficient clinician

 

Manon Bolliger  08:14

Yeah, yeah. And it just comes, you know, to show to how our own self care is essential to really allow our full creativity, like when we're in the profession of helping others, you know, we don't always think creativity matters, but it does

 

Shannon Leggett 

And to think about right, like lifestyle management, making changes in you know, diet, sleep, all of that. It's so much cheaper.

 

ABOUT SHANNON LEGGETT: 

Shannon Leggett, PT, MPT, YT-200 is a licensed Physical Therapist, certified Yoga Instructor, and owner of Shannon Leggett Physical Therapy, PLLC.

Most of Shannon’s 20+ year career has been in NYC, helping thousands of corporate executives and high-level athletes recover from injury.

She combines her extensive background in evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal pain with her passion for yoga, to provide care of mind, body, and spirit.  Shannon uses her expertise in movement, manual skills, and lifestyle management to help patients climb mountains, cross finish lines, and develop healthy habits which help them transform their health.  Her expertise has been featured in Bustle, Insider, Healthline, LIVESCIENCE, Women’s World, Parade, and on podcasts such as Healthy, Wealthy, and Smart and The Heart of Healing: The Healer’s Journey.

Core purpose/passion: I am on a mission to help people live well.  The amount of chronic disease in the U.S. is staggering. The sad part is that most of this is avoidable.  While there are medications to help, I believe there is a cheaper and more empowering way to go.  Lifestyle management is key here. However, people know more about their computers or the stock market then how to care for their bodies. I want to empower people to change their habits to by providing them with education.

Also, I am extremely passionate about normalizing mental health as health care.  I faced so much stigma when I was first diagnosed-even from my own medical providers. It made an awful time in my life harder. I made a promise to myself that I would always be honest about my journey and help those struggling so no one should ever have to feel like I was made to feel!.
