Pastoral Science & Medicine (Professional Wellness Alliance) is the term devised by the Pastoral Medical Association (PMA) / Professional Wellness Alliance (PWA) to describe the system of natural approaches founded upon spiritual principles used by PMA (PWA) licensed practitioners for promoting and improving physical, mental and spiritual health of their clients.
Clients of PMA/PWA practitioners achieve health improvements by making positive lifestyle changes and following other natural procedures that are scripturally sound, scientifically based and professionally administered pursuant to acceptable standards of care.
The following definitions are used to establish the PMA’s term “Pastoral Science & Medicine”.
Pastoral: of or relating to spiritual care or guidance especially of a congregation.
Science: the study of the physical and natural world and phenomena, especially by using systematic observation and experiment.
Medicine: to cure, heal and make whole. (This term is derived from the KJV New Testament Greek Lexicon word “ijavomai”, transliterated to “Iaomai”, listed and defined in Strong’s Concordance as word #2390.)
Therefore, combining these definitions, Pastoral Science & Medicine means: Spiritual care and guidance (pastoral) using healing phenomena observed, experienced and recorded (science) over centuries, utilizing scriptural insight for good physical, mental and spiritual health, prayer, natural agents and protocols (medicine) to achieve lifelong health and well-being.
In understanding what Pastoral Science & Medicine is, it is equally important to emphasize and understand what it is not.
Pastoral Science & Medicine is not the same as and does not involve the practice of conventional medicine. More specifically, PMA (PWA) licensed practitioners do not examine, diagnose or treat, or offer to treat or cure or attempt to cure, any mental or physical disease, disorder or illness, or any physical deformity or injury; and PMA (PWA) licensees do not recommend or prescribe any medications or pharmaceutical drugs or recommend any change in prescription or use of medications or drugs that may have been prescribed or provided for you by a medical physician.
It is important to note too that any Pastoral Science & Medicine services you may receive from a PMA (PWA) practitioner are completely separate from and not related to, approved by or dependent upon any secular federal or state governmental licensing authority or any other healthcare license the practitioner may have.
I had a facial yesterday with Lisa and it was AMAZING I’m very familiar with extractions as I’m an esthetician myself and have been getting routine facials for years but hers were painless and fast. Definitely my new go to!!
Thank you Omni Balance Life and thank you Jaime! Your work speaks for itself but I want to assure those who are burdened in their minds, their souls like I was. lacking a normal sleep cycle, waking up invigorated, not feeling hopeless and numb.
Thank you Jaime for being such a caring professional.
Omni Balanced Life Center has been a godsend for me. If I could give 10 stars, I would! The Omni staff have helped me improve both my physical and mental health. I appreciate their holistic, natural approach to optimizing the human body. Jamie, the owner, is so incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about helping people fix themselves from the inside out. I could not praise Omni enough. Jamie and her staff have improved my life immensely, and for that I am forever grateful!
Omni Balance Life Center is a wonderful Spa. Last week I made an appointment with Ana for a lymphatic massage and I was very happy with the results. I had my thyroid removed nine years ago and often I have swelling around my neck. After the treatment my neck was normal and for the rest of the evening I got rid of fluid in my system. I have had this type of massage before and this one was the best. Ana has a beautiful energy and is also very knowledgeable of her craft. I highly recommended this place.
From the first phone contact I knew this was going to be a wonderful experience for my aunt who has severe swelling in her lower extremities and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Kristina was so patient, kind and gentle and took the time to explain everything in detail to put my aunt at ease. She and Ana are truly angels and my aunt was amazed to see the swelling go down significantly in her legs after just her first session! The Bemer mat and MLD protocol are now going to be part of a regular maintenance regimen for her. My family and I couldn’t be more appreciative of the wonderful service and care provided at Omni Balanced Life Center!
I loved my treatments at Omni Balanced Life Center! I had a series of lymphatic massages before and after my surgery, and it helped so much. No pain meds needed and swelling was minimal! Ana was amazing, she really knows what she is doing! Christina and Jamie are wonderful as well.
“I had the absolute best experience. After having plastic surgery, I was swollen and had zero energy. My body was just tired and achy. Ana Payero was my therapist. She’s calm and very professional. She offered great advice to help with my healing post surgery. I came for one session, but ended up signing for three. And will return for more. The office is beautiful and welcoming. I was leave feeling relaxed and better. I am so happy I chose Omni for my lymphatic massages and for being paired with Ana.”
“AMAZING!! Everyone working here was amazing and Christina was so friendly and very helpful. I got a lymphatic drainage massage it was my first one and I saw results quickly after. My legs especially went down from being swollen. The atmosphere was very spa like with nice music and lighting. There was free tea to try that was delicious. My mom did the infrared sauna and BEAMER and really enjoyed it. Will definitely go back on my next trip!”
