Solutions for Intimacy is committed to helping couples regain and enhance intimacy levels following prostate cancer. The Personal Approach is at the program’s core – a customized, interactive experience addressing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of intimacy. Individuals and couples learn how to utilize sexual energy as a foundation for a sexually fulfilling lifestyle.

What is The Personal Approach?

When surgery or radiation inhibits the physical act of sex, couples must discover and harness new ways to reconnect as the body “reawakens.” The Personal Approach introduces couples to those connections through a tantrically inspired process for healing the body, mind and spirit. It blends traditional and alternative therapies proven effective at solving intimacy issues following prostate cancer:

Naturopath
Founded upon a holistic philosophy, naturopathic medicine combines safe and effective traditional therapies with the most current advances in modern medicine. Naturopathic physicians involved with The Personal Approach support and enhance your innate capacity for healing and vitality using holistic and natural methods, often in tandem with a traditional medical practitioner. Recommendations often include nutritional supplements or hormone therapy.

Tantrika
For men and women, sexual health has been linked to the foundation of overall wellness, creativity, liveliness and empowerment. The Personal Approach tantrikas can help you understand sexual energy and the role it plays in cultivating wellness, and deepening intimacy and sexual fulfillment. Tantrikas offer perspectives and tools not typically found in Western healing models. They are highly attuned to energy and its capacity for pleasure and healing.

Hypnotherapist
From a tantric perspective, the body is energy and information. Much of this information is held beneath the level of conscious awareness. In a therapeutic setting, hypnotherapy focuses on the role of the subconscious and how our beliefs influence present outcomes. Through hypnosis, you can identify and remove energy blockages, replacing negative, self-defeating imprints with positive, life-affirming suggestions to enhance your capacity for joy and fulfillment. You will also explore belief systems, triggers and emotions.

Psychologist
The Personal Approach psychologists use more traditional approaches to focus on the mental and emotional aspects of leading sexually fulfilled lives. You will work together to understand the past, accept the present and create the future. 

Chiropractor
Chiropractors can identify energy blockages along the spine called sublixations. When releasing these blockages, life force energy flows more freely. Chiropractic treatments have the potential to enhance a person’s overall wellbeing, allowing energy to flow in the spine and in the whole body.

Additional Support
As needed, we utilize additional activities and methods to help you maximize your experience. This may include: yoga, acupuncture, ayurveda, meditation, massage, fitness and recreational activities, spa treatments and more.

 

How does The Personal Approach work?

The Personal Approach is just that – personal! We assess your current situation and comfort level, and then develop a customized program based on The Personal Approach methodology. It typically combines a series of in-person sessions, self study material (books and videos) and individualized coaching.

All in-person sessions take place in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona. If attending as a couple, some sessions will be conducted on an individual basis, and some as a couple. If attending by yourself, sessions are designed to teach you new ways to reconnect with yourself and a partner.
