MASSAGE THERAPY

"Massage therapy is a wonderful way to improve health."

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a tool to release the tension & stress that resides in our physical body aids in the removal of toxins that congregate in areas. Once circulation is improved, the muscles finally get the oxygen & nutrients they have been craving & the body returns to a state of balance (homeostasis). This strengthens the immune system & increases your energy levels while improving your overall sense of well-being. 

Ayurvedic Bodywork

Ayurveda is the Indian system of medicine & health care.  It is the foundation or sister science of the Yoga tradition. Ayur – means life & Veda means science or knowledge. Ayurveda acknowledges that there is a unique relationship that each individual has with his or her environment. As long as we live in balance with that, our body has everything that it needs to be healthy & whole. Ayurveda is unique in that the diagnosis & treatments for imbalance consider the entire range of life from the macrocosm to the microcosm as well as the entire range of human experience from the physical/energetic/mental/emotional & spiritual aspects. Right diet, proper herbs & healthy lifestyle are encouraged as well as various bodywork treatments & various Yogic tools including meditation.

Thai Bodywork

Thai Yoga massage is a passive form of stretching and relaxation. It addresses the whole body with gentle, soothing, rocking movements, yogic stretching, range-of-motion work, compression & decompression, & has a unique & extremely relaxing way of pumping Prana or energy through the body. By opening the sen sip or energy lines & the windgates, proper energy flow is restored. Clients often report feeling calm but energized after a session. It is done on the ground, fully clothed.

Reiki

Reiki means “Universal Life Energy.” It is the life force of the Universe. This natural healing method is more than 2500 years old. In the mid-1800’s Dr. Usui rediscovered this lost art. Reiki is a hands-on healing technique, and the practitioner serves as an open channel for the flow of Reiki energy. Because it is holistic, it can provide healing on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.

Mukha Abhayanga, Mukha Sveda & Mukha Lepam Facial

These 3 Ayurvedic treatments combine into one incredible facial.  The first treatment begins with an oil facial massage to nourish the skin, stimulate the movement of energy & relax the muscles of the face.  It is then followed by the application of steam, which opens the pours to remove toxins & dilates the vessels so that the medicine in the herbs can easily absorb into the skin.  Finally an herbal facial mask is applied to the face & while it dries, the shoulders arms & hands are massaged.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a very deep technique designed to unwind bound fascia surrounding the muscles and encourage the restructuring of proper body alignment. This technique is done with slow, deep, deliberate pressure without the use of oil. Concentration is needed to follow the natural intelligence of the body as the fascial tissue unwinds the areas of chronic contractions and habits of repetitive motion.

While comfortably positioned, we take special care to work the areas most affected by your physical changes. These techniques should release muscle tension, improve circulation, decrease swelling, and rejuvenate your spirit.

Your body is restructuring itself and massage can help to alleviate the new aches and pains that are associated with this process as well as improve your sense of self.  It provides a new mother’s much needed time alone and relaxation.

The attunement starts a 21 day cleansing period of the seven major chakras.

Reiki II – Absentee Healing
After learning the concepts of this class, the student is led through a guided meditation. This prepares the student for the Reiki II initiation. The initiation further opens the student to be able to channel the Reiki Ray. The student learns some of the Reiki symbols, techniques for absentee healing, how to analyze and open the chakra system, and how to apply the use of symbols to all healing. Another 21 day cleansing period of the seven major chakras begins.

Reiki III – Master Level
After being prepared by a guided meditation, the student receives the Master level initiation. This initiation completely opens the student to the Reiki Ray. The student learns more Reiki symbols and Reiki breathing (the breath of the dragon). The water ceremony is introduced. The student learns ways to heal Mother Earth and how to clear and energize crystals. A third 21 day cleansing cycle of the seven major chakras begins.
