Everspring Health's mission is quality of life. We recognize that balance for the body, mind and spirit is facilitated through a variety of experiences. Complimenting the health care one receives at Everspring Health, we have created opportunities within Everspring Living. This focus of Everspring Health supports quality of life by providing space for balance, peace, expression, creativity, mindfulness, meditation, movement, education, community support and more. We are happy to provide opportunities as noted below:

Painting With Presence - A path towards balance, peace, joy and amusement.

Play, express and discover through color by exploring wet-on-wet watercolor in the style of Hauschka Therapeutic painting. This process creates space for mindfulness, acceptance, peace and relaxation. Discover what emerges from the process both on the paper and within your own body/mind awareness. No prior art experience is necessary. Materials are provided. Space is limited to 6 participants per session. Cost is $20 per session. Classes are held at Everspring Health.

We encourage you to sign-up here for Everspring Living Calendar Updates. You'll receive information on Everspring Living community offerings, classes, etc, and is inclusive, whether one is a member or non-member of Everspring Health. Our goal is to be thoughtful of the emails you receive, so these emails will enable you to get current updates directly, as events may not always be posted on social media sites.

Holistic Medicine Principles

Principles embraced by the Members of the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine


  1. Optimal Health is the primary goal of holistic medical practice. It is the conscious pursuit of the highest level of functioning and balance of the physical, environmental, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of human experience, resulting in a dynamic state of being fully alive. This creates a condition of well-being regardless of the presence or absence of disease.
  2. The Healing Power of Love. Holistic health care practitioners strive to meet the patient with grace, kindness, acceptance, and spirit without condition, as love is life's most powerful healer.
  3. Whole Person. Holistic health care practitioners view people as the unity of body, mind, spirit and the systems in which they live.
  4. Prevention and Treatment. Holistic health care practitioners promote health, prevent illness and help raise awareness of dis-ease in our lives rather than merely managing symptoms. A holistic approach relieves symptoms, modifies contributing factors, and enhances the patient’s life system to optimize future well-being.
  5. Innate Healing Power. All people have innate powers of healing in their bodies, minds and spirits. Holistic health care practitioners evoke and help patients utilize these powers to affect the healing process.
  6. Integration of Healing Systems. Holistic health care practitioners embrace a lifetime of learning about all safe and effective options in diagnosis and treatment. These options come from a variety of traditions, and are selected in order to best meet the unique needs of the patient. The realm of choices may include lifestyle modification and complementary approaches as well as conventional drugs and surgery.
  7. Relationship-centered Care. The ideal practitioner-patient relationship is a partnership which encourages patient autonomy, and values the needs and insights of both parties. The quality of this relationship is an essential contributor to the healing process.
  8. Individuality. Holistic health care practitioners focus patient care on the unique needs and nature of the person who has an illness rather than the illness that has the person. 
  9. Teaching by Example. Holistic health care practitioners continually work toward the personal incorporation of the principles of holistic health, which then profoundly influence the quality of the healing relationship.
  10. Learning Opportunities. All life experiences including birth, joy, suffering and the dying process are profound learning opportunities for both patients and health care practitioners.
