A bodywork therapy based on yoga and Ayurveda (the science of life) that has its origins as a healing modality by Buddhist monks in Thailand over 2,500 years ago. It is considered to be more energizing and rigorous than typical forms of massage. Thai Massage is performed on a padded mat on the floor as the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs and feet to apply gentle compression along the body’s energy (“Sen”) lines and stretching to move your body into a series of yoga-like positions.
Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that promotes relief of muscular tension and stress, improvement of circulation, boosting of the immune system and increase in energy and flexibility. Its overall purpose, according to tradition, is to promote relaxation and healing of a person physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Reflexology involves the manipulation of nerve endings (reflexes) found in the palms of the hands and plantar surfaces of the feet that correlate with every organ and body part found within the 10 zones of the body. When performed by the personal touch of a Reflexologist, the manipulation channels the energy and blood flow through each zone in order to promote balance, proper blood circulation and total relaxation throughout the body. In addition to reflexology for relaxation and rejuvenation, the technique has been known to promote relief of allergy symptoms and maintenance of post-diet weight.
A technique that promotes stress reduction, relaxation and healing that has been practiced for thousands of years. It is a special kind of energy that can only be channeled by someone who has been “attuned” to it. Reiki technicians may either gently touch or their hands may hover over the receiver. As energies begin flowing automatically, the receiver has been known to enter a very calm, relaxed state and feel refreshed after the session. The unique quality of Reiki is that there may be a different experience with each session.
Ear Candling is an ancient method for removing wax and candida from the ear canal. It is a practice in which a hollow, all natural candle is stuck through a paper plate or aluminum pie tin and is inserted into the outer ear canal. As the end of the candle is lit, the combination of heat and suction draws waxes and toxins from the ear througha process called convection. Ear Candling is a therapeutic relaxation technique (releases blocked energy) since many pressure points and nerve endings of the ear correlate to other parts of the body. It has been known to have an ancillary benefit of promoting sinus wellness and ear ache relief by cleansing the ear canal.
Acupuncture is an ancient medicine datingback thousands of years. Acupuncture works by insertingthin needles superficiallyinto the skin to stimulte small wells of energy. These wells are acupuncture points and the energy itself is called Qi (pronounced “chee”). Qi flws through acupuncture points along channels or meridians. Qi is sometims translated as life-force energy. It animates, informs and enlivens all living things. Natural cycles are disrupted if Qi is not flwing smoothly or abundantly and we become symptomatic disconnected or diseased. AdjustingQi with acupuncture encourages the body, mind and spirit back into balance and health. Acupuncture addresses each person individually and holistially and is as much a road to self-discovery as well as to healing. 1 hr/$120
