MEET TODD NYHOLM
Todd Nyholm is a Somatic Therapist who, through personal experience, has discovered the undeniable relationship between mind and body. His studies have made him an expert in all types of therapy: from visceral manipulation and craniosacral to acupressure, shiatsu and reflexology. His Nytality Method offers people the solutions they need to live a healthier and happier life.
Since 2002, Todd has run a somatic therapy practice and continues his holistic education by maintaining his studies at the renowned South Florida Barral and Upledger Institutes. He helps people get healthier by using the methods learned at the institutes and those he developed himself during his earlier years when searching for answers to his own emotional and physical challenges.
In his first book, Ah, Food, Why Do You Trouble Me So Much?, Todd shared 14 mental and emotional steps to help understand what sabotages diet, weight, and health goals beyond poor food choices. His actionable and fresh insights to holistic wellness have been featured on How Not to Get Sick and Die, Health Media Now, Wellness Radio, and Food Experience Unplugged, among others.
What is the Method?
The method includes many exercises, meditations, contemplations, self-care techniques, a therapy method for somatic therapists, and yoga-like exercises. It has methods for dealing with trauma, mental exercises, a series of systems for working more consciously with your emotions, a system for recalling the parts of you that have gotten lost in your shadow side, and integrating those pieces with the whole of you.
What is the Method's Purpose?
It’s purpose is to help you work with your health in all its forms. It works with a number of principles applied through different areas of your life but puts the emphasis on your inner world. Since we all experience our life inside, putting our awareness on what is going on inside and then beginning to make changes in our inner environment (mind, emotions, position of organs, muscle development, kinesthetic sensation, mental programming, emotional programming, and more) can make profound changes.
Who can benefit from the Method?
In the ever-shifting world, the one thing that always goes with you is your inner world. It’s the one thing you can count on to be with you, even through illness, betrayal, job loss, financial difficulties, bullying, and even in sleep that aspect of life and you are still there. Because of that, we feel that this is the area to work. These methods can be done by anyone and go from very basic but powerful up to much more complicated to achieve better results. It is all based on your health
Why use the Method?
The NVL includes many methods to help build one’s health, methods to take some control of how you feel and how your mind functions. Rather than just allow these to function unconsciously we will learn to see them and slowly begin to see and work with the space between you and them.
It will change your experience of life and yourself when you realize (actually experience for yourself) you aren’t your mind, body, or emotions. Then the ability to consciously work with and conduct your mind, emotions, and sensations will become more available to you. The way life is experienced by you is modulated mostly by inner factors (mind, emotions/feelings, sensations of the body, energy levels) these are actually within you. Humans have significantly more control of these aspects of themselves than almost anyone realizes (actually makes real for themselves). We are far more complex in our personalities than most of us know. That is partly why it is hard to stay disciplined, one minute we are this part of our personality the next we are in another. Because of this development of greater degrees of self-consciousness and awareness are vital to the process of real healing and life cultivation. As you develop greater degrees of self-consciousness and overall awareness you’ll be able to change more of your inner world and experience and have better health and a better time of being alive. This isn’t about dominating yourself but about waking yourself up and consciously working with all that you are.
Check out what others are saying about Todd's book, Ah Food Why Do you Trouble Me So Much?
"This book is tremendous! I keep re-writing this review as I just don't feel like it accurately expresses the value I've found in this book. Mr. Nyholm brings a new perspective to my relationship with food. I can't believe how dramatically it has already impacted the way I choose what I decide to eat and that's with just one of the principles from his book. This is like a user's manual for food...except the focus is on your perspective, not on the food itself. It seems this book can be applied to almost any diet. I have a couple books in my library that I refer back to and use as a resource often. This will be one of those. I can't recommend this book strongly enough."
