The origin and techniques of Shiatsu originate from the ancient Oriental systems of healing that work with the body’s energy system (meridians). Shiatsu works by improving the quality of meridian flow to promote balance and deep healing in the body, mind, emotions and spirit. A Shiatsu Practitioner uses techniques such as stretching, rocking and applying pressure with thumbs, fingers, elbows or knees to the meridians to improve the quality of energy flow. A Shiatsu session takes place on either a futon or a massage table with the client fully clothed.
Shiatsu is very effective in treating chronic conditions that do not respond to traditional Western medicine or as a complement to Western treatment.
It is also excellent as a wellness routine as it can prevent serious health issues by correcting minor energetic imbalances before they manifest as chronic conditions.
Clients notice a difference in their body, thoughts and feelings after receiving Shiatsu treatments on a regular basis:
Relieve From Pain & Discomfort
Better Immunity Against Viruses
Breathing More Deeply and Fully
Mindful (less accidents!)
Choosing Healthier Foods According to Their Body’s Needs
Awareness of Body Mechanics That Prevent Physical Stress
Letting Go of What No Longer Serves Them
Deeper Spiritual Connection
What is Reiki?
Reiki is composed of two words, Rei and Ki. Rei translates as the Supreme Intelligence that creates, destroys and guides Universal phenomena. Ki translates as the energy that this Supreme Intelligence travels on. Ki permeates every living thing throughout the universe. The Reiki Practitioner who is attuned to the Reiki energy, channels Reiki by placing the hands directly on or above the person. The Reiki Practitioner serves as a clear channel for the flow of Reiki which comes from the highest vibration of Universal Love. Reiki can also be given at a distance, cutting through time and space.
How Does Reiki Heal?
Reiki heals by flowing through the person’s energy system, purifying their energy and infusing it with the healing Love and Light of the Universe. Since our energy system (meridians and chakras) nourishes our organs, muscles, tissues as well as our thoughts and emotions, healing is very deep and often puts one in a deep dream like state. Reiki clears, purifies and heals the energy (ki), thus allowing the energy to flow in a healthy way. What Reiki seeks to heal is the person’s Spiritual nature. Reiki healing is always concerned with your life purpose. This kind of healing will be different for everybody and according to each person’s unique make-up. So symptoms may or may not disappear. Over time, by healing with Reiki, you may feel a greater sense of purpose and meaning. Life begins to change on many levels; life changes that will support your healing process.
Reiki with Crystals
Adding crystals to Reiki sessions can be quite powerful as crystals have their own healing benefits that help to amplify the Reiki energy and they also resonate with our chakras. Crystals and healing stones can be placed on or around the body. Crystal wands can be used to cleanse and purify the aura. Crystals and healing stones can be used to calm the nerves, ground energy, release negativity and promote a healthy energy field.
How Should I Prepare For a Reiki Treatment?
Dress in loose, comfortable clothing since Reiki is given with the person fully clothed. Natural fiber clothing is recommended. The first session can take about 75 minutes since there will be a form to fill out and discussions about your condition that will enable me to best serve you. It is best to arrive on a light stomach. A typical treatment takes about one hour which includes discussion about past and present conditions. Sometimes essential oils, crystals and various sound tools are used to enhance the treatment.
What is Polarity Therapy?
A blend of Ayurvedic tradition using the “Three Principles and Five Chakras” and Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Five Element Theory and Yin/Yang teachings, Polarity Therapy is a system that includes energy-based body therapy, diet, exercise and self-awareness. It works with the Human Energy Field or the electromagnetic field which is believed to contain the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual properties of a person. In Polarity Therapy, health is viewed as a reflection of the condition of the energy field. Therapeutic methods are designed to balance the field for optimal physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. This system works with 3 types of energy fields in the human body: the Bipolar current that runs north to south (head to toe); the Transverse current that runs east to west (side to side); and Umbilical Current that starts at the navel and expands outward. A pulse diagnosis determines which current or currents need to be addressed. The Polarity Therapist then seeks to balance out these currents in the body using various touch techniques and working with a person’s diet, exercise and lifestyle.

Yoga is a spiritual science that originated in India and has been practiced for thousands of years.
The word Yoga translates as union, yoke or to join. The word “Yoga” was given to describe the system of disciplines that involves care of the body, mind and spirit through physical postures, breathing techniques, mantra, chanting and meditation. It is a practice that seeks to join all aspects of who we are to Divine Source.
Originally, yoga was taught by one teacher to one student or a few students.
The ancient ones understood the importance of teaching this way to meet the needs of the student. A private yoga session allows for a more meaningful yoga experience that will enhance your strengths and personal growth. Whether your goals are to inspire your present practice, gain confidence, resolve an injury, or work with a health condition, a private session will enable you to experience the benefits of yoga safely and in a personal way.
Traditional Kundalini Yoga uses specific sets or kriyas of repetition of movement, mudra, mantra and various breathing techniques to purify the body, mind and emotions and stimulate the flow of Kundalini. Kundalini is the source of energy that resides at the base of the spine or the Muladhara Chakra. Kundalini rising raises consciousness and unleashes our greatest potential so that we can live a more happy and fulfilling life that is in line with our Soul’s purpose. Balance of the Chakras and grounding are extremely important when working with Kundalini.
