No amount of positive affirmations will override a loud inner saboteur voice that doesn't believe it.

Porchia uses Somatic Dialogue to heal core issues that reside at deeper levels of the heart, soul and subconscious for powerful personal transformation and healing of past hurts, trauma and misunderstandings.

You can't effectively heal emotionally by doing a spiritual by-pass.
Inner Child Healing work, Sacred Anger work and Compassionate Self-Forgiveness are three essential healing modalities that are necessary to experience healing at the heart-soul-subconscious level prior to anchoring new beliefs and new beginnings.

The first thing I tell my clients facing a cancer diagnosis is to re-frame their diagnosis as an imbalance in their body-mind-heart-soul as opposed to something that is linked to a death sentence. Cancer doesn't happen overnight. It is caused by an accumulation of toxins over a long period of time that weaken immune function and allow cancer cells to take hold in weakened parts of the body.

Toxins are not limited to physical elements in the environmental. Mental and emotional stress can also accumulate in the body from over worry, anxiety, falling into the Nine Traps of Unconscious Loving, holding onto past emotional hurts, traumas and misunderstandings. Chronic mental and emotional stress creates an internalized environment of constant low-grade drip of stress hormones cortisols that weaken immune function and allow illness, disease and cancers to take hold in the body.

Porchia's "Holistic" Approach
Body-Mind-Heart-Soul Integration for Health, Wellness & Success
The Time To Heal, Change and Take Action Is NOW

Holistic means addressing the whole person to create and maintain optimum health and wellness. Traditional medicine has become compartmentalized with doctors specializing in one part of body only. This is fine for broken bones. However, the human body has been expertly engineered to work as a whole unit with one system of the body dependent on and supporting other parts of the body.

Holistic and integrative medicine recognizes that a multi-disciplinary approach to healthcare provides the maximum therapeutic benefit.

Dianne Porchia looks to integrate effective stress reduction techniques, mind-body medicine principles and body-mind-heart-soul wellness practices into your daily routine for creating life in balance. Holistic health and wellness means looking at the five levels of one’s life:

  • Physical Level: Diet, nutrition, exercise, work habits and lifestyle factors
  • Mental Level: Thoughts, beliefs and values motivate behaviors which are either supportive or not supportive of one’s goals.
  • Emotional Level: Feelings and emotions follow thoughts, beliefs and values and affect the physical body on a cellular level.
  • Subconscious Level: Thoughts and feelings hidden from the conscious mind that motivate behavior and can feed an “inner saboteur.”
  • Spiritual Level: Source of spiritual growth, personal healing, love, forgiveness, compassion. The heart and soul level is where all healing takes place.


The mind is a tool to be used in service to the heart. The mind is where the ego resides with all of its protection mechanisms that have been developed through childhood in order to make itself fee safe, secure and free from harm.  However, at some point during the maturation process one may discover that all these protection mechanisms operating in the psyche and subconscious are creating huge blocks and barriers to the love and intimacy one desires in relationship, the success in one’s career and work or the health and vitality one desires with their body.

“I’d better change the way I’ve been living my life or else something else or worse might happen

Wake-up calls can happen in a variety of ways that alert onesometimes as a result of a divorce, break-up or death of a loved one; losing a job, being passed up in promotion, hitting a ceiling of success; or having a serious illness, disease or accident.

Floating Sessions. No holistic health and wellness treatment is complete without including nature. Unique to sessions at the Topanga Retreat is its proximity to the fresh outdoors and therapeutic use of Nature as teacher, healer and inspiration.  Porchia’s unique and therapeutic Floating Bed hangs from a large oak tree and is often used for sessions with adolescents and teenagers, immediately establishing rapport and shared experience while setting the tone for a casual, fun and therapeutic session.

Adults, too, are encouraged to spend 10-15 minutes in the Floating Bed to journal after sessions, in order to integrate the work and ground the individual in Nature before driving out of the canyon back to city life.  

Porchia’s Topanga Retreat canyon location in the Malibu / Santa Monica Mountains, is minutes from the beach communities of Malibu, Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica to the West; Woodland Hills, Calabasas, Agoura, Thousand Oaks to the North; and Encino, Tarzana, Studio City, North Hollywood, Hollywood and Beverly Hills to the East.   However, phone and Skype sessions are also available and can be just as effective and deep once rapport has been established.
