Become your own soul’s doctor.
— Epictetus 55AD

Since the earliest stages of psychological development, humanity has been using the mind to heal mind, body, and spirit. In fact, Shamans, Cantadores, and preverbal healers predate western traditions by at least one hundred thousand years. And yet, mind-body medicine is just now finding its way back into western healthcare.

Our goal at Mainestream Wellness is to restore the arts and sciences of mind-body healing into mainstream medicine. We believe that the mind is one of the first lines of defense against stress, disease, and the overall prevention of illness if utilized correctly in the healing process.

Dr. Shaw Sprague has combined in depth psychodynamic principals with the ancient art and science of China that uses what the National Institute of Health refers to as "Putative Subtle Energy." The use of subtle energy work helps to restore balance in mind, body, and soul while decreasing the high risk and cost of more invasive treatments.

Whoever protects himself against what is new and strange and regresses to the past falls into the same neurotic condition as the man who identifies himself with the new and runs away from the past. The only difference is that the one has estranged himself from the past and the other from the future. In principal both are doing the same thing: they are reinforcing their narrow range of consciousness instead of shattering it in the tension of opposites and building up a state of wider and higher consciousness.
— Carl Jung
