Energy Work
 
Blue Medicine:

A highly potent form of energy work. The Medicine Buddha mantra is held to be extremely powerful for healing of physical illnesses and purification of negative karma. According to the legend, he transformed himself into a radiant blue light Buddha at a large gathering of people and taught/transmitted the knowledge of healing and medicine. Thus, he is often depicted with blue skin or holding a blue medicine jar.

Reiki: 
Reiki, meaning Universal Life/Light Energy, is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. A Reiki Energy Healing promotes healing by easing soreness, aches, and pains. It may also boost the immune system, eliminate energy blockages, and repair old patterns.  It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what animates us. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that can benefit anyone. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
 
Cranio-Sacral Therapy:
Cranial Sacral Unwinding is process-centered work that facilitates energetic release.  The cranium and the sacrum are gently rocked using various techniques to free the cerebral spinal fluid and remove blockage.  The focus of this work is on garnering the healing energy within the body which serves as a catalyst to initiate the person’s own healing ability and process.
 
 
Earth Energy:
Just like its name, Earth Energy is drawn from Grandmother earth, through the practitioner, into the client. Earth energy is very grounding and works on all of the systems of the body. Both Earth energy & Reiki restore harmony and well being by guiding healing to the whole being - body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
 
Chakra Balancing:
. According to traditional Indian medicine, there are 7 energy centers along the spine, located at major branchings of the human nervous system, beginning at the base of the spinal column and moving upward to the top of the skull. I work with the 12 chakra system and the 3 governing trikas which house their principles The health of each chakra correlates to the optimal functioning of specific areas on physical, mental, and emotional levels. Chakra Balancing uses a combination of hands on dialogue, breath work, energy work, meditation and sometimes massage therapy to restore harmony within the system.
 
Acupressure:
Based on the Chinese principles of acupuncture~
Accesses and Releases blocked or congested energy centers in the body. Uses finger pressure (without the needles) on specific points along the twelve major meridians within the body.
