Energy Healing

Energy work is based on the belief that everyone has a "life force", and that the body needs to sustain its balance for optimum health. Anytime you experience emotional or physical illness, it indicates that your life force has simply become unbalanced. I work directly with your energy field to restore balance and flow to your entire system. And once your energy field has been restored to full health, your body will follow. There are many types of energy healing. Here are some of the modalities  we offer:

Vibrational sound therapy uses sound and vibration from Zen Therapy Singing Bowls to activate the parasympathetic nervous system which induces a deep relaxation response in the body.

Polarity therapy is a type of bodywork which is focused on the energy fields of the body, rather than the physical body itself. The practitioner attempts to adjust the skewed energy fields of the body and bring them into balance. To achieve optimum health and wellness, we encourage clients to make life style changes such as eating healthy and increasing levels of activity through exercise, stretching, or yoga. During a polarity therapy session, the therapist and client usually work together in a very calm, relaxed environment.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Balancing focuses on the craniosacral system and is based upon the early work of American osteopath, Dr. William Sutherland and later, the work of Franklyn Sills.  They studied the skull, its individual bones, the membranes underneath and the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid between the cranium and sacrum. He believed this movement produced the body’s inherent life force, that he named the “Breath of Life.” He regarded the subtle movements of the “Breath of Life” as expressions of health.

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, the practitioner works directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. There are a variety of essential oils available, each with its own properties that promote healing.

Brain function is believed to be stimulated by inhaling the aroma from these "essential" oils.  By applying "essential" oils to the skin they can become absorbed to impact overall healing throughout the body.
