Menla Holistic Health Professional Services


The Menla Holistic Health Center is a wellness and prevention center based in Hartford. We provide a wide-range of services, including:

Holistic Counseling: Want to laugh at life a little more? Learn to watch your thoughts rather than immediately react to them? Get to the root of chronic pain? Understand why you keep repeating the same tired pattern? Malou’s holistic counseling approach treats both the body and the mind, and helps to create new thinking pathways that will help you live a more peaceful life. During each session, Malou uses ONDAMED to give the body therapeutic support while guiding each patient to process long-held traumas and patterns. This combination creates lasting inner healing on a psychological, emotional and spiritual level, and alleviates physical pain and suffering. It is said that where the mind goes, energy follows, and Malou helps patients cultivate positive, loving thoughts that manifest in a healthy body and a healthy mind.

Acupuncture: Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body’s energy flow into healthier patterns, and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.

Energy Therapy: Also known as energy medicine or biofield energy healing, energy therapy is a branch of complementary and alternative medicine that holds the belief that a healer can channel healing energy into the person seeking help by different methods: hands-on, hands-off, and distant (or absent) where the patient and healer are in different locations. Energy is the basis of all life and energy penetrates all living beings and inanimate objects. Energy therapists believe that an imbalance of energy can manifest in physical symptoms, illness and disease. By correcting the energetic imbalances, the physical symptoms will dissipate, and it can enhance the emotional, mental, and entire physiological well being of a person.

Sound Healing: Frequency and vibrations can be used to heal the body. By using cutting-edge, scientific sound technology, sound frequency has the ability to reach deep into the recesses of the brain. Sound healing can entrain the brainwaves and nervous system; accelerate healing; create deep relaxation; access deeper states of consciousness; expand awareness; deepen meditation; spark creativity; and, offer better sleep quality.

Feng Shui: Chinese art of placing objects in accordance with the concepts of yin and yang—the passive (female) and active (male) principles, respectively—in Chinese cosmology, and the flow of qi which may have beneficial or harmful effects on one’s health and life.


Massage Therapies: Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues and consists of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of or to the body.



Meditation Techniques: Meditation is a practice of concentrated focus upon a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: This form of therapy applies to all kinds of emotional and mental health issues. Participants create new neuronal patterns in the brain to strengthen new behavior choices. The goal of MBCT is to interrupt automatic thought processes and teach the participants to focus less on reacting to incoming stimuli, and instead accepting and observing them without judgment. This mindfulness practice allows the participant to notice when automatic processes are occurring and to alter their reaction to be more of a reflection. MBCT helps people live more consciously rather than being ruled by knee-jerk reactions and old behavior patterns. MBCT makes you the co-creator of your own life.
