Most of us experience muscle stiffness and joint pain as a way of life. Often it is not until we receive integrative therapeutic massage that we realize how much energy is consumed by coping with tension and pain. The tension and knots of pain we experience are often messages of stress, anxiety, and the need to slow down and pay attention to our health. Massage therapy helps increase your awareness of your body’s needs and can be an essential first step and a means of continued support in the healing process.
Massage is more than just AHHH…If you think getting a massage is just a luxury or too self indulgent or something to feel guilty about giving yourself… Please Think Again!
Massage and bodywork happens to be one practice that can help you maintain physical, mental and emotional well being on an ongoing basis… especially when it is a regular part of your wellness routine. We all deal with our own and sometime collective life challenges from time to time that cause a disruption in our energy field and vibration which can cause stress. It has been found that an upwards of ninety percent of the root cause of all dis-ease is stress related.
Massage and bodywork calm the central and peripheral nervous systems thus promoting a sense of relaxation and well being. Some of the benefits of massage include reduction of many types of stress including tension, fear and anxiety, worry and depression, and insomnia and fatigue, improvement in blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cell, stimulation of the lymphatic system, which carries away the body’s waste products and strengthens the immune system, relief and prevention of muscle cramps and spasms, as well as help with pain management and healing in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, chronic back pain, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia, just to name a few. The benefits of having a regular massage are far reaching and will have a ripple effect in bringing a sense of balance and well being to your life.

"Usui" or Holy Fire Reiki Healing Therapy
During a Reiki session, Hands are lightly placed on or off the body connecting and directing energy to free up restrictions and congestion. This treatment can consist of Reiki Healing, chakra balancing, and the use of gemstones. The effects of this treatment are said to be Energizing and/or deeply relaxing.
What is Reiki Energy Healing Therapy?
Usui/Holy Fire Reiki is a new form of Reiki that was introduced about three years ago bythe International Center for Reiki Training. It is both powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance. It is included as part of Usui Reiki training.
Holy Fire Reiki energy is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness. Some of the qualities practitioners and clients have experienced include:
• Works continuously even when not thinking about it and spontaneously heals issues as they come up.
• Always respects free will.
• Heals deeply and quickly without distress.
• Heals relationships and interactions with others.
• Releases worry and replaces it with a sense of safety in a most pronounced way.
• Spontaneously provides guidance that is palatable for every level of life experience.
• Tends to develop all the personality traits that are healthy for a person to have such as love of self and others, kindness, patience, confidence, vitality, enthusiasm, optimism, trust, joy, peace and so forth.
• One of the more wonderful effects is a feeling of being loved. This is a deep and refined feeling that is very nurturing.
• Once received, it continues to develop itself to be more evolved and effective.
Using my therapeutic massage techniques as well as Karuna Reiki Healing, you as a client will receive the best of both!
Reiki paired with the use crystals is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. A very relaxing and rejuvenating feeling. Reiki treats the whole person including mind, body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include feelings of peace, security and well being. I will also clear any blockages in the 7 main chakras of the body leaving you feeling more balanced and open to healing.
While the massage addresses any immediate soft tissue problems in the body. I use craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, swedish and triggerpoint therapy to help relax and release any adhesions and knots in the muscles.
Before a Reiki Session the practitioner, sometimes with the help of the recipient, will choose crystals to use during the session that complement the desired results. The crystals are then placed on or near the body during the session. Sometimes the crystals will be used on a grid under the treatment table or chair if one is being used in place of a table. The session is then performed in the same manner as a regular Reiki Session.
Add the healing properties of a BioMat to any session! The BioMat’s unique medical and therapeutic properties are based on Nobel prize-winning research into ionic channels and the same infrared technology that NASA identified as the safest and most beneficial type of light wave. By producing deep-penetrating, far infrared rays along with negative ions that activate the body at the molecular level, the BioMat is capable of administering deep soothing experience.
When stones get warm, they naturally release negative ions and far infrared deep impact heat. Amethyst isolates and concentrates healing crystal rays in the most absorbable wave length range 4-16µm with Energy Peaks at 6 and 12 microns to go 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) Deep into the Tissues. Amethyst has been recognized as the most valuable healing crystal since ancient times.
