Awareness is Healing® Method (AIH)

Modern medicine tends to address the symptoms while ignoring the underlying issues that result in chronic and acute disease. We believe that healing is a holistic process powered by greater self-awareness. Understanding how your body functions and responds to stress, brought on by past events and/or your current lifestyle, is often the missing link to resolving years of pain and suffering.


Centered Spirit's Awareness is Healing® Method (AIH) is a holistic modality rooted in Traditional Maya Medicine. It evolved from co-founder Alex Jackson’s decades of traveling, studying and apprenticing with internationally renowned traditional medicine practitioners and teachers of Maya and Mexican Traditions in Central America, Mexico and New Mexico.

The Awareness is Healing® Method encompasses the belief that trauma, repeated stress and unresolved emotions cause undue pressure in the body leading to chronic physical health conditions, including:
Digestive Health


  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Acid reflux/heartburn

  • Chronic constipation

  • Food allergies

  • Colitis

The Awareness is Healing® Method integrates an intuitive, comprehensive approach to care and includes techniques like:

  • Maya Abdominal Massage ~ a critical component of the Awareness is Healing® Method, the abdomen is the doorway leading to balance in the body and spirit for a more “centered spirit.”

  • Cupping Therapy ~ gentle pulling of the muscles to release fascia, nerves and adhesions.

  • Acupressure ~ a traditional Maya & Chinese medicine technique that follows similar principles as acupuncture, but without needles.

  • Maya Prenatal Massage & Maya Postpartum Care ~ specialized massage grounded in up-to-date-conventional medical knowledge and the wisdom of Traditional Maya midwives.
