Energy Work & Sound Therapy
*Sliding scale available upon request for most sessions.
As you relax fully clothed on the Biomat, you’ll receive the full benefits of its three powerful healing components: far infrared rays, negative ion, and amethyst stones to encourage relaxation, ease pain, reduce stress, relax muscle tension, relieve joint pain associated with arthritis, and improve circulation. The practitioner will assist you in getting comfortable and then leave you to enjoy this unique therapeutic experience. 60 minutes
This ancient Japanese tradition is combined with the help of the BioMat to restore balance and increases the rate of healing. You begin your session by lying comfortably on a massage table; while you remain fully clothed, the practitioner gently and respectfully applies their hands in a series of positions to address your overall well being. Bringing balance to the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. 60 minutes
Power Animal Retrieval
In indigenous cultures it is considered beneficial to live deeply connected to one’s power animals. Animal spirits can help to remind us of our innate yet underutilized or unexpressed gifts. They empower you, offer you their protection and support you to integrate your gifts into your daily life. A power animal retrieval allows you to become connected with your animal allies. Through shamanic journey your practitioner will travel to the lower spirit world to find the animal that wants to align with you. This can be very helpful for children and adults alike. We will go over your animal’s characteristics, discuss how their wisdom can assist you and how to embody them. 60 minutes
A great asset for those experiencing physical pain, disruptive negative thought patterns, depression, and stress responses from traumatic events. This session utilizes a variety of plant, mineral, and animal allies to shift vibrational patterns and blocks in the energy body. We will work together to get what’s stuck moving. Then reiki is applied to strengthen you and invite healing on all levels to support you in thinking clearly, creating positive thought patterns, and making choices grounded in what is for your highest good. 60 minutes
We all experience trauma to different degrees in our lives, from car accidents to abusive partners or family circumstances. When the trauma occurs, part of our soul becomes fragmented and splits off to protect our psyche from the traumatic experience. In psychology this is called dissociation, when you slip away because it is not safe for you. This leaves us feeling separate from ourselves, saying things like "I just don’t feel like me anymore," or "I feel lost." These fragments remain separate until they are collected and returned. The lost fragments are tracked by the practitioner through shamanic journey and brought back to be reintegrated. This is very powerful and important work toward becoming whole and feeling like yourself again. 120 minutes
Negative Energy Extraction
When soul loss occurs, a void is created. That void becomes a magnet for negative attachments from intrusive energies; just like a parasite, they feed on our life force and drain our energy. This leads to addiction, chronic pain, fatigue, and illness that doesn’t heal. These attachments cause confusion and can destructively misguide the choices we make. Think of someone who keeps making the same choices and suffering negative consequences. Removing these negative energies can allow us to restore our natural state of health. It can be beneficial to have supportive family members present during this session. This work is accomplished through shamanic journey and is supported with Reiki. For those with significant soul loss, soul retrieval is highly recommended. 60 minutes
Sound Therapy Sessions
$85 (60 minutes)
I invite you to experience an hour of deep relaxation. Allowing yourself critically important time to just be. While in a Tibetan sound healing session you are able to follow the sounds as they entraine your brain waves to shift out of the busy, racing mind and settle into a meditative state. Singing bowls are an incredibly powerful tool to get the logical, rational mind out of the way to allow the places we hold things in the body to release and clear away the emotional attachments that no longer serve us. It is best to wear light colored, loose fitting clothing. This work is most powerful when you come holding a strong healing intention.
Effective in reaching a state of deep relaxation and stress reduction; allowing the body to achieve a state of peace and calm. The sounds entraine your brain while in a state of consciousness to switch from beta to alpha to theta which is where profound levels of healing take place. Bowls are positioned around the head for this therapeutic experience.
Effective in shifting feelings of frustration, anger, depression and anxiety. These behavioral responses are rooted in surviving life’s experiences but block us from thriving. The mind detox calms the mental chatter that holds us in these states. Allowing your mindset to shift to the highest state of healing so awareness can surface and more productive patterns can take root. Bowls are positioned around the head and on the body.
Guided Meditation (For groups: $20/person)
The support of vocal prompts guide you through the process of relaxation and shifting thoughts away from old patterns and into the awareness of the body to release tension. Through creating this mindful present state you will feel peace and calm in the body, mind and emotions. Bowls and chimes are positioned away from the body and sometimes on or near the body as needed.
Clearing and Strengthening the Body
This therapeutic experience begins with clearing and strengthening the energy field to set the stage to address specific physical ailments. Then using vibration to go straight to the core of the issue by placing them directly on the body. Bringing any dissonance back into harmony. Providing relaxation and release of tension in those areas; addressing physical pain, digestive stagnation and overall well being. Next we will work on the hand and foot reflex zones to increase circulation, address hypertension, and gently stimulate the internal organs allowing balance to return. This option is a perfect adjunct to your doctor’s protocol.
