About Dr. Todd

Todd Garrity, L.Ac. Licensed Acupuncturist Owner, The Om Flow Educational Foundation Todd received his Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and Bachelor’s of Heath Sciences at the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Academic and clinical education included a solid foundation in the theories and practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine that was well balanced with education in western sciences and the western understanding of the human body. A three-year internship prepared him to work in a modern clinic and gave him practical, one-on-one experience with patients and prescribing Chinese herbal medicine. In addition to extensive study in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Todd was trained in Reiki, Bodytalk, and trained with a shaman in Peru to learn how to tap in and assist patients in releasing emotional and spiritual blockages that are frequently the underlying cause of serious medical conditions. Personal Background Prior to his career path in healthcare, Todd received a BA in Journalism and worked as a reporter for various newspapers and magazines across the country. After many years of constant computer use, he developed wrist bone problems very similar to carpel tunnel syndrome. He underwent surgery, which worsened the symptoms of pain and limited movement in the wrists and hands. When living in Portland, Oregon, he started to see an acupuncturist on a regular basis for the problem. Three months later, the pain was completely gone and full movement returned. “To me, it was a sign that I was on the wrong career path. Not only did I realize that journalism was not my calling, it also introduced me to acupuncture. I hope to help heal others with this ancient medicine as my acupuncturist helped me.”

PET THERAPY…I know your thinking, “is this for real?” Well, yes it is my friends. A lot of people just laugh at the thought of taking a dog to therapy, but I know that I would do just about anything to help my little pooch feel happier and healthier.

We got Chloe at a shelter about 6.5 years ago and back in January 2012, she had an accident where a chair collapsed on top of her. She was immobile for a whole month and was never really the same dog after she recovered.  She would hide under the bed a lot, pee and poop inside, etc.  Her demeanor had changed.

When Chloe and I walked into Todd’s office everything changed for her.  I can not explain exactly what he did, but with the use of kinesiology he gathered information that other people can’t.  Chloe and I left the appointment, and from then on, Chloe has been completely different.

She no longer hides under the bed, she hasn’t gone to the bathroom inside, he recommended getting a crate for her to get the sense of security, and I have never seen my dog happier.

Todd entered the mind of my little furry friend.  I can not be happier with my decision for giving it a try.  I would definitely recommend pet therapy with Todd Garrity for anyone that is having doggy issues.

Small business help with The Om Flow

Does it feel like your business is stuck? Do you wonder what is off or what you could be doing differently?

Is it staff? Marketing? Location?

Does your business need to shift course, but you don’t know how to take it there?

Everything on this planet consists of energy. Just like a solid table is made of billions of moving atoms, our thoughts and dreams are also energetic. When a group of people or just an individual work together on a common goal, we build an energy system for a business. Just like all our positive hopes for the business fuel the energy of the business, our underlying fears can creep in as well.

Let’s say you have been selling a product online and you want to open a storefront, but you are afraid of taking on the loan required to do so because of an underlying fear of failure. You will go to bank after bank and be denied for that loan. You look at your online sales history, cash flow, and credit score and think, “This doesn’t make sense! Why can’t the business get this loan?” Even though the reality of the business should be ready for that step, the energy to receive that loan is blocked by the fear of failure. What to do? Simply shift the energy flow of the business to eliminate the fear.

HOW??? Well, that’s what we do at The Om Flow. We balance out energy systems of people, animals, and businesses to help energy to flow without blockages. The way we do this is through a system called Accunect, which works through the theory of quantum physics to analyze precisely where the blockage is and then uses traditional Chinese medicine theory, such as balancing the five elements of the energy, to assist in making the shifts necessary to keep energy flowing in a positive direction.

Nothing is wrong with your business, but something may be out of balance. We can help you narrow that down to make the next steps to nurture the success of the business.

Just to show you how Accunect can help your business in Denver and worldwide, The Om Flow is offering a very special deal for new clients just for this week. One business session, valued at $150, for only $25. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

Give your business the energy it needs to thrive.

Accunect Ancient Wisdom Conference

Accunect™ is a year old this month!

Thanks for all of your enthusiastic feedback! We have taught Accunect to several hundred students since the first course in September 2011 and the response has been amazing. I am absolutly loving teaching it to you all and feel so honoured to be of such service. So many of you have written to tell us how Accunect has transformed your life and your sessions. I want to share some of my thoughts and experiences after teaching Accunect for a year.

People often comment on how easy it is to learn and practice Accunect. They are amazed that they are very comfortable with Accunect and confident to use it Monday morning. This has been very gratifying because we set out to create a system that could be used effectively by everyone.

Non-practitioners get a huge transformation out of the weekend and are confident to use it on themselves, family, and in their life immediately. And, busy professionals are able to immediately integrate Accunect into their practice because it so fast and easy – we’ve had so many testimonials about how Accunect has made a dramatic difference in people’s practices the day after the course – their clients get off the table saying that it was really powerful, that they don’t know exactly what was different but they just feel happy.

People who haven’t taken Accunnect wonder “CAN IT REALLY BE THAT EASY?” and if they can really learn it in a weekend. Much of our programming from our culture and conventional medicine gives us the idea that healing is hard. But, that is just an idea and that idea is about to change! Accunect represents a new consciousness for healing that is in time with the modern age. It is simply time for the world to embrace healing and transformation in a faster, easier, more feminine way.

Accunect is easy because it leverages on the basic principles of healing. All healing begins in the heart. The frequencies generated by the heart regulate the nervous system, meridian system, even genetic programming at a cellular level. For lasting change to occur, we have to connect to ourselves and others at a heart level. In the heart, we know we are connected to each other, to universal consciousness, to our True Self and to God. That is why we call the first class Connect.

The experience of taking Accunect connects people to their true self to bring in feminine energy to be present. We use sacred geometry to shift your consciousness to a state of expanded possibility where powerful transformation is possible. This brings energy and awareness to the heart center and shifts consciousness and perception to a feminine state of receiving: receiving intuition, possibility and miracles.

The Accunect system has been refined and distilled to make it simple to learn and this allows the thinking mind to relax. This keeps you in your heart not your head, opening up intuition, and allowing the feminine energy to create instant transformation. The total experience is as much an unlearning as it is learning – people are unlearning all the teaching that keeps them separate so that they can remember and experience their connection.

My personal experience of teaching Accunect has been amazing. There’s a lot of practice time where students give and receive sessions so that they can transform their own health and consciousness during the class. The practice time also gives tremendous confidence in the ability to do Accunect balancing after the course. During these practice times, there is a felt sense of joy in the room as everyone experiences being in their heart, connected to their true self, and watching miracles. I often find myself in a state of euphoria just watching students practice.

I can’t begin to say how rewarding it is to teach a powerful healing system that everyone “gets” right away. Countless students have told me how my “easy” approach empowered them to practice energy work and witness miracles. One testimonial from an Accunect student really touched my heart: she realized during the course that she felt powerful shifts during every practice time – that every student was “getting” it and that everybody could learn to do healing!

My first degree was in software engineering, so it was a bit of a journey for me to discover that you think better with your heart than with your head. I first studied Applied Kinesiology in the 1980’s, when it was really complicated – a bit too much like the rocket science job I had left to do healing. So, I also studied traditional healing in the form of Chinese medicine and oriental bodywork, because working with my hands allowed me to be in my heart. The longer I practiced and taught, the more I realized that keeping it simple and getting the practitioner to relax was the key to unlocking more powerful results.

I am blessed to have a partner in creating Accunect: my wife, Sarah Simonis, who is the cofounder of Accunect. Sarah has been studying healing and spirituality her whole life and is a source of incredible wisdom. She also brings the divine feminine energy into the Accunect system and has played a huge role both in the development of both the Accunect system as well as the way in which we teach it. She is my guide in my own personal journey from the head to the heart.

Together we have created a healing system that anybody can learn and we enjoy sharing it with people who want to heal themselves as well as with professional practitioners who want to share in the healing and transformation of others.

Thank you to those of you have taken Accunect already for walking with us on this journey of healing and transformation.

Yours sincerely,

“Todd recently gave me the most amazing acupuncture treatment ever in my life. I have been to a handful of acupuncturists, but none of them ever put the time and extra effort into my treatment like Todd did.

Not only did he give me an acupuncture treatment but he also perfomred Body Talk, Chakra Re-balancing, Tui Na Massage and I am pretty sure some Reiki as well. I felt like my body literally melted into the bed.

Todd made me feel completely comfortable and I felt confident in his knowledge and experience. He also has great skin care and essential oil blend lines.
I am looking forward to my next appointment!”

The STRESS Solution

It’s Monday morning after Thanksgiving weekend. Even coffee and leftover pumpkin pie can’t soothe the ache from the realization that the holidays have arrived. And with them, the inevitable … STRESS.

What is stress? No, really. We all complain about stress; how much of it we have, how it affects our sleep and eating, our overall health. It can cause all kinds of physical ailments: cancer, ulcers, heart attacks, the list goes on. But what IS this STRESS thing that is quite literally killing us?

Stress is simply a state of mind. OUR own mind out of OUR control. How strange a concept is that? We are the creator of the stress that causes all kinds of harm to us! As ridiculous as that is, think about this: Our society actually places VALUE on stress. We are rewarded when others see us stressed out. We have all collectively agreed that people who are frantically scurrying around in a hypertensive state of mind are highly motivated, busy people who are really getting things done. But ask yourself; are you really doing a good job when you are in a stressed out state of mind?

Not only do we value stress, we are addicted to it! It gives us a charged up sensation, which can feel good at first. However, it functions like any addiction, requiring more and more to get the adrenaline rush. Also, just like any other addiction, it will eventually have the opposite effect. Right now, there is a lot of talk about a new disease termed “adrenal fatigue” – overexertion to the point of exhausting the endocrine system! Just like any other addiction, it can be difficult to stop the stress, particularly if you are convinced that some good comes from it, and the society you live in rewards you for having a great deal of it.

Think about how you feel when you are under stress. Your mind is tight, rigid, inflexible, and anxious. Things become difficult, the world and our problems feel overwhelming. Just when you need to be flexible to move with the many changing situations, stress immobilizes you mentally. The pressure builds up. You become more rigid as deadlines approach; perhaps things don’t go as planned and your mind becomes a pressure cooker. Your mind elicits a feeling of being trapped. The mind and the body are connected, so on the physical level your body tightens as well – muscles and ligaments literally tighten up. You begin quickly to develop physical symptoms of stress such as tension headaches, migraines, skin problems, respiratory failure, heart palpitations, even strokes. Ultimately, stress shortens lifespan and can lessen the joy and love in our hearts which is what makes life worth living in the first place.

Think about longer periods of stress on a mental/emotional level. The pressure becomes so great, it turns to depression. Stress destroys our happiness and our relationships with others. We can easily develop resentment of others, particularly if they are not as “stressed out” as we are. If they aren’t racing around like mad, we think they aren’t as busy and stressed as we are. We quickly become irritable, short-tempered, even critical of them. The truth is, they might be dealing with even more life situations than we are, but they have control over their mind, so they are not experiencing stress!

Where does all this stress come from in the first place? Think about the things that stress you out. Usually it is people, work, or home situations that cause the stress. We can’t change the situation, and even if we do, we quickly realize that it’s not the things that are the problem, it’s the mind’s reaction to them. There has always has been a lot of things going on and there always will be. But when we are in a state of stress, the world around us seems uncontrolled, but really it is the mind that is out of control.

We are basically hallucinating when we are under stress. Seeing the situations of life as big, bad and permanent creates overwhelm, negativity and desperation.

When you start to look at how harmful stress really is, it becomes an addiction that you not only WANT to rid your mind of, but you absolutely MUST.

The only solution to a stress-free life is to get your mind under control. First, by realizing the delusions taking place, and then to actively alter your viewpoint.

We tend to air on the side of negative. We become fearful when things are going well. If happiness is based on external, it won’t last. We can call it the “yeah, but” syndrome. Whenever you talk about something “good” that happened, check yourself for the “yeah, but,” as that’s negativity sneaking in. You got a great new job, but now you’re working more hours. The vacation was wonderful, but it rained. When you catch yourself in the “yeah, but” syndrome, move your mind to a place of positivity. Start a daily activity of staying positive about the same situations you have been looking at through dark glasses. Once you see how much you really have going for you, maintaining a positive outlook becomes much easier.

The most important way to maintain control of your mind is to recognize the Law of Impermanence. It is the changing nature of everything. People change every moment. Nothing lasts forever. Situations change. Don’t hold on. Let go. Holding on weighs us down and makes us feel negative about ourselves and other people. Holding on to the past doesn’t help us. It’s like walking through life with a bag of stones on our back. Why hold on to the past? It doesn’t exist now. Only in our mind do the people and situations of the past continue to exist. Have a mental garage sale. Experience a sensation of relief as you let go of all the stuff that is keeping your mind in the pressure cooker. Sometimes we identify with those things from the past. You are not that person from the past. You are not the same person and the world has completely changed. All these big things that seem permanent today will be gone in a moment when they become part of the past.

We also are carrying a great deal of stress now because we’re thinking about future unknowns and fears. We actually will cause negative karma to ripen and it might come true by fixating on all the
“what ifs” of the future. But, we can’t control the future as it doesn’t exist, so again, we are allowing our mind to fall into the stress state over something that doesn’t even exist!

Everything we experience is our junk. We threw it overboard in past lives and it’s washing up on our shore now. We look to blame others, but it’s ours. We have to learn to deal with that trash because it’s ours. Lighten up and see your circumstances as opportunities. Ask yourself “what can I do with this?” when difficulties arise. Think of people who make beautiful art out of trash when you are looking at your life situations in this new light.

Remind yourself that it’s not that bad, it’s not that big and NOTHING is permanent. Think of something funny when you get stressed, laughing lightens the mind. Remember that you grow through challenges. Don’t give up on yourself. With a positive mind, you can change everything. Things are just how they appear. Change your mind and you will change your world. Accept the challenge.
