MILWAUKEE — At Milwaukee MindBody Wellness, founder Aleisha Anderson can offer patients a natural and dynamic treatment for mental health.

"We decided to come into this concept of bringing multiple modalities in, so there is already this little community that people are familiar and comfortable with so as they want to start getting into other areas healing is always very comfortable. They already know the kind of atmosphere and it makes it very accessible," says Aleisha.

Whether it's speaking with a psychologist or using acupuncture to heal the body, Aleisha and her staff do their best to find the true cause of one's ailment.

"We get distracted very easily in this culture, so we don't feel our feelings all the time, or if we do it's very easy to get buried in work, or parenting, or hobbies, or whatever we do," says Aleisha.

As an essential business, Aleisha also understood the importance of self-quarantine. Closing for 14 days, she allowed patients to tell her when they were ready to return.

"I had people reaching out to me who were really struggling with panic episodes, serious anxiety, and insomnia issues. That began the starting to phase in the more extreme situations," says Aleisha.

Treating existing patients through video calls or in-person when needed, Milwaukee MindBody Wellness will start to accept new clients on June 1st.

If you believe in the benefits of self-care, or not, Aleisha stresses that honesty is one method everyone can benefit from in today's world.

"The more we can come back and just check-in, how am I doing? How does my body feel? How am I sleeping? Is my digestion okay? What am I eating or do I feel like I need to drink every day? The more we can just be honest with ourselves the better we are going to be coming through the end of this."
