    In the last year MHC has gone through some transformations! Motherlode Holistic Wellness Center has closed, however The Body, Mind Spirit Center of Amador has taken over the space at 1001 Broadway under the direction of Davina Edmonson, CMT and Jim DuCray, MFT.

    MHC is once again focused on sharing community information and highlighting the work of Brandy LaRae Astwood, CHT, CIMT, CD, HCBE,  as well as growing the online resource directory of health and wellness professionals in the Amador, Calaveras and El Dorado gold country region.

    Subscribe to the MHC blog to stay updated on the lasted local happenings that support a positive, healthy life.

FREE Listing in MHC Directory!

I have decided to open the MHC community resource directory at no cost.

The reason?

My focus is on building my private hypnotherapy practice. That is where my energy is directed. I do not want to spend time tracking subscriptions, sticking to a timely schedule of posting, collecting payments and so on. Nope, does not resonate with me at all!

However, I do not want to abandon the community I spent years building thought the Center. By offering the listing for free I can add your info and no other follow up is needed. MHC remain a valuable resource for our Motherlode community. Win, win, right?

I’ve streamlined the process of posting to the blog and in most cases can have your event, special offer or other news shared within 24 hrs of submitting.

So please register your holistic, complementary, alternative, healing business today, by clicking here. Listings are reserved for local Northern California business.

Weight Loss Program Starts 4/13

Healthy Changes

Got your attention with Weight Loss in the title, didnt I?

Healthy Changes is wayyyyyy more than a weight loss program, in fact weight loss is only one of the many super fab side effects of the  Healthy Changes Program.

This 10 week program is about making healthy changes, Mind, Body and Soul for vibrant energy, calm confidence and peaceful joy along with a slimmer, stronger body.

I know you have done other weight loss programs, started work out programs, read a ton of books or articles, but somehow or another you are stuck.

Each program starts with a gung ho motivation that soon disappears or pain stops you in your track, life gets in the way, you get sick of the restrictive food choices or you find yourself reverting back to bad habits and so on and so on.

How about we do things a lil different?

Lets take a gentler, kinder approach to a whole new healthy lifestyle that is easy to create and maintain.

During the 12 week Healthy Changes program we will be utilizing small, systematic lifestyle changes, weekly challenges and hypnosis that results in abundant energy, motivation, increased confidence and permanent weight loss and a more blissful life.

This is not a quick fix program, this isn’t even a program where you will see fast results (but you sure will FEEL it!) however it is a program that will give you the tools to take charge and live life to the fullest while getting healthier and happier.

There is no pain and no restrictive diet.

Interested in knowing more?

Call Clinical Hypnotherapist, Brandy Astwood at 209-304-1415 to ask questions.

The program is available in private sessions for only $35 a session when paid in full or small groups that meet weekly at Global Healing Arts on Jackson Gate Rd, Jackson, Ca for $150
