Do you take on negative energy from other people or your environment?
Do you have negative self-images or negative self-talk?
Have you taken pharmaceutical or street drugs?
Have you had food or drink so hot it burns your lips or tongue?
Have you been seriously hurt - emotionally or physically?
If your answer is yes to any of these questions, there may be damage to your life force energy, which reduces your flow of light. Consequently, you may feel tired, down, unbalanced, depressed, anxious, or not quite yourself.
Our Aura is a reflection of our life-force energy that often gets holes in it due to our lifestyle. This session heals damage in the aura, which diminishes or blocks the flow of light. The aura is scanned, and any damage is filled with light and healed.
Benefits of Aura Healing
Are you in a bad mood lately? Are close friends and colleagues asking, "What's wrong with you?" Do you feel clumsy, forgetful or jinxed? Are you having difficulty making decisions? Are you attracting negative people and situations? It's very likely that your chakras are out of balance.
Chakras regulate energy flow from Source through the energy body, into and through the physical body and back out to the universe. Chakra balancing encourages appropriate emotional responses to life events and helps us to better navigate day-to- day occurrences.
Even though there are 100s of Chakras, there are seven main ones that are typically dealt with when it comes to healing. The Chakras begin at the bottom area of your spinal cord at the point of the coccyx bone and travel along up the spinal cord to the very top part of your head. These are the Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra.

CranioFacial Therapy (CFT) releases stress and tension within the muscles of the face and within the cranio vault that houses our brain.
Stress or tension can be caused by mental, emotional, physical or spiritual experiences that can compromise homeostasis of the brain, other parts of the physical body or aura. Whether acute or chronic, the cause and effect from these imbalances places additional stress or tension on or within the brain. This can lead to further fatigue and mental strain often causing our ego to act out. Clearing the mind of negative energetic toxins through craniosacral and myofascial releases will help the spirit mind and body return to a well balanced and peaceful facial expression.
CFT can be a very effective modality for those suffering with the effects of the following conditions: ADD, ADHD, asthma, autism, back aches, cerebral palsy, colic, dyslexia, earaches, epilepsy, headaches, hyperactivity, learning disorders, neck aches, reflux, scoliosis, sinus conditions, strabismus, throat conditions, TMJ syndrome, and a wide variety of chronic ailments. The earlier in life that a person receives therapy the better their outcome will be.
The Trauma of Birth: The origin of many chronic conditions can start in utero or at birth due to fetal trauma, a long labor, the actual delivery (as the baby's head and body are pushed through the birth canal with tremendous force), the umbilical cord wrapped tightly around the throat or body and /or the use of forceps or a vacuum suction tube. The distortion of the tiny skull bones and the resulting soft tissue pressure on the brain and the rest of the body from these birth traumas, if left untreated, can last a lifetime. CFT directly after birth can be very corrective for many conditions and may prevent a lifetime of pain and suffering for a child. Treatment can also benefit the mother who experienced pelvic trauma during the delivery.
CranioFacial Therapy (CFT)
CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life and wellness. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.
Every day you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system – and the performance of nearly every other system in your body.
CranioSacral Therapy releases these tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch — starting with about the weight of a nickel — practitioners evaluate your internal environment. Then they use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any restrictions they find.
By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CranioSacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being. And because it's so gentle, CranioSacral Therapy has proven effective for all ages, from newborns to elders.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), also known as "Tapping", offers gentle desensitizing techniques to release specific traumatic issues. This removes the blocks that keep you from enjoying life.
Tapping acupressure points on your body is calming and soothing. Adding a few words to describe the upsetting event calms the body down and releases the trauma.
You will be empowered to use these techniques on your own as you heal with EFT. The techniques are so simple that even children can learn them.

An Emotional Cord Cutting, or energetic tie is a structure of energy between two people which causes patterns from the past to constantly be re-lived. These ties are often referred to as cords of attachment because they are an open channel between you and another person which energy and emotions flow without your conscious knowledge. You are literally “attached” to each other on a subtle level.
While it is necessary to have some ties in every relationship, it is important to differentiate between the beneficial ties and the destructive ties. Every day we exchange energy with friends, partners, parents, children, siblings, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances. In these interactions there are bound to be instances where we may feel hurt, misunderstood, betrayed, judged, or insulted.
We are often not aware of how much energy we spend on these experiences which may ignite emotions such as fear, anger, or resentment. If we do not resolve and forgive these moments, we continually leak energy to these incidents and keep negative patterns alive.
We are not conscious of these ties and for this reason negative patterns in relationships tend to repeat themselves constantly.
A good way to tell if you are still energetically and emotionally tied to a person or situation is to think of the person involved, and if an emotion arises, it shows that some of your energy is still invested there.
Another indication that you are losing energy through a cord of attachment is to be aware of your energy levels after interacting with another.
If you feel drained for a few hours after spending time with someone, it shows that your energy has “leaked” outward. Also, it is important to pay attention to any changes in your moods. Do you always feel angry around a particular person and you do not know why? All these are indicative of any unhealthy connection.
Cords are formed on a subconscious level, usually through one’s need for control, strength or manipulation. Cutting ties is a helpful thing to do to clear past experiences, beliefs, resentments, and judgments. Cutting ties allows us to remove old patterns and stop reliving dramas with other people.
Cutting ties does not sever the relationship (unless that is the intent), rather, it puts the relationship back on a healthy path. By cutting ties of old, negative energies, we allow space for new, more harmonious energies to enter those relationships. When you cut energetic ties, you will feel a sense of being free or of having a heavy burden removed. Effects may be felt physically, energetically, or emotionally.
Emotional Cord Cutting
The spaces where you live, work, cry, stress and scream collect all of the energy that you release. That energy collects over time just like the dust underneath the bed or desk. Have you ever had an argument and later felt negative energy coming from the space it took place in? A house or office clearing wipes away negativity in order to give the space a chance for positive energy to thrive once again!
Reasons why a house or office clearing may be necessary...
Life (DNA) Activation is a powerful healing modality that enables you to access your potential in life.
It allows you to see and progress in your journey of growth. This 3000 year-old method has inspired people to move past barriers and achieve breakthroughs in their daily lives.
Your DNA contains the blueprint for who you are as a Divine Being. It is God-given, holy, sacred, and defines the uniqueness of you. Initially the Life Activation was used as a rite of passage in the ancient mystery school traditions to activate high priests and priestesses, prophets, and oracles. Activation to the 22nd strand has been handed down from the time of King Salomon to trained initiates and is now being offered from the realms of spirit to bring humanity into full empowerment.
It infuses your body with pure Light, making its way through blocks, issues, and weaknesses possibly unknown to you.
The Life Activation makes visible what was hidden in the shadows, and gives you the ability to work through what you see.
The Life Activation will, in time, give you access to the secrets and mysteries of who you are and what your purpose is.

Reiki is a method of stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The technique was developed in Japan and is administered by the laying on of hands. It is based on the idea that all living things have a special energy flowing through them called life energy.
When your life energy is high, you'll feel strong and confident, be more relaxed and centered, and less likely to get sick. When it is low, you'll often feel tired, be more easily affected by stress, and less resistant to illness.
A Reiki treatment is a way of increasing your life energy.
A practitioner will transmit Reiki to the client through the hands. The hands are lightly placed on or near the body in various positions around the head, shoulders, stomach and feet. Sometimes a practitioner will also treat above the body.
A treatment can feel like a warm glowing radiance that flows through the body. It is a very relaxing experience and some clients report the body feeling heavy as it relaxes and yet the spirit or emotions feeling light at the same time. A treatment will usually release negative feelings or thoughts, leaving the client feeling more positive, light hearted and with a feeling of well-being.

Reiki Clinic - Participants
This work is an intuitive blend of indigenous shamanic energy medicine, spiritual healing, crystal therapy, illumination, extraction, cord cutting, soul retrieval, soul transition, and/or destiny retrieval. Energy healing clears the imprints of disease and trauma from the luminous energy field (LEF) or bio field and brings balance to the body-mind-soul.
Energy work is rapid in nature. Most clients will see and feel results in 1-3 sessions. If that is not the case, we would suggest that the time is not right or perhaps the match between the client and the practitioner is not the best fit. In energy work, the practitioner facilitates the work of the client, as opposed to the healer doing the work alone and “fixing” the client.
Sessions range from 1-1.5 hours in length and can include a very wide range of interventions. Together with the client, the shaman determines the interventions needed after taking a detailed history and proceeding with the healing session. Combinations of the shamanic practices take place over one or more sessions. Sessions can take place in person or remotely through the telephone, Zoom or Skype.
The basis of the shamanic energy healing session is the Illumination process.
In the Inka shamanic tradition energies are either “light,” supporting life, or “heavy,” not serving our highest good. The Illumination process transforms heavy energies into light, so they can become sources of power and knowledge. To do this, the shaman clears the chakras and the energy surrounding the body, the Luminous Energy Field (LEF). Once erased, the chakras are balanced to allow the immune system to do its job for health and healing.
While the Illumination Process removes most negative energies, some toxic energies crystallize and embed themselves in the body. Other intrusive energies can lodge in the central nervous system. These energies are attracted to us when there is an affinity within us. For instance, anger can penetrate our LEF when anger lives within us. These energies must be manually removed by the shaman. The shaman scans the individual to locate the energies and then removes them using crystals, rattles or other tools. Once the energy is removed, the shaman performs the illumination to increase the frequency of the affected chakra to attract pure, clear, beneficent energies.
Each and every one of us at some point(s) in our life experience physical and/or emotional trauma.
When we experience traumatic events, it is possible for a portion of the soul to separate from our essential self. This soul loss can manifest as illness, emotional arrest, fear, insecurities or other manifestations. The shaman journeys through meditation. During this meditation, the shaman:
• Locates the soul particle
• Identifies the soul contract the individual is living under
• Finds the gifts the soul is offering
• Locates the power animal associated with this client
The shaman discusses the findings and offers the client the opportunity to “reconnect” with the soul particle, “re-write” the contract in more positive terms, and accept and interpret the meaning of the gifts and the power animal. This practice gives the client the ability to change and create their world.
Cord cutting is the cutting of an energetic connection with another person.
When people are in a relationship their energy fields meld. This is true of any relationship. In romantic relationships love is not the only necessary component for a healthy relationship. Just because we love someone does not mean we should be partnered with them forever. Sometimes relationships are abusive, dangerous or simply not healthy for us, even if they are family, or even if we love the individual. Sometimes relationships end.
The process of cord cutting allows:
• Individuals, who have separated, to move on with their lives or to interact without the abnormal attachments
• Unhealthy relationships no longer have that connection and control
Cord cutting, for the shaman, is best done within the context of a shamanic healing. This way not only is the energetic cord located and removed, the client can also receive the benefits of the illumination process to clean and balance the chakras to facilitate the healing process.
A variety of crystals are utilized in shamanic work for:
• Grounding individuals or spaces
• Healing work
• Removing unwanted energies
• For protection
• In ceremony
The despacho is a gift for the Universe, a prayer bundle, an energetic exchange for healing to reestablish perfect ayni (right relationship), or protection. A despacho can be used for a wide variety of occasions or requests – births, deaths, as expressions of gratitude, to make a specific request of spirit or to release that which no longer serves us.
The despacho holds symbolic elements and becomes a living prayer that brings energy shifts and healing. The despacho can be buried (for slow, steady results), burned (for quicker transformation), or fed into running waters for the energy shifts and healings. These can be made individually or in group classes.
Shamanic divination is the art of seeing and interpreting signs in everything around us. The shaman uses various methods and tools to achieve this.
Shamanic Card Readings:
Before time and language, there were the sacred symbols, part of the archetypes and the collective unconsciousness. They offered hope, expressed caution, illuminated opportunity, inspired creation, courted power, and shared knowledge. The shaman consults the oracles, to gain insight to understand the present, heal the past, and influence the course of your future.
The shaman travels through meditation to journey into non-ordinary time to communicate with their inner or spirit self and retrieving information. This can be accomplished with the aid of a rattle or drum.
I Ching Readings:
The I Ching is a dynamic map to reveal answers to current conditions and discusses the proper or correct ways to address the situation. This can be applied to individuals, to groups, to countries or to world issues.
Bands of Power Attunements:
The invisible bands of power are a protection that can help us live safely in this world. The bands represent the five elements Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Chi and nourish the chakras.
The shaman layers the luminous bands over the chakras, like a blanket wrapped around the body.
The Black band representing Earth is energetically woven over the first, or sacral chakra.
The Red band representing Water is woven over the 2nd and 3rd abdominal chakras.
The Gold representing Fire is woven over the heart chakra.
The Silver representing Wind is woven over the throat chakra.
Finally, pure white light representing Spirit is woven over the sixth chakra, the third eye.
The shaman connects all the bands and activates them for living continuous protection in the client.
This is a holistic approach for today’s modern man or woman to assist them to re-evaluate themselves, dream big, set goals, manage stress and learn options to balance their life.
Counseling can be individual or as a group class.
Interventions can be selected from the following and include, but are not limited to:
• Vision boards
• Fire breathing /stress poses
• Energy clearing
• Aromatherapy, aromatouch
• Guided meditation
• Dietary review
Shamanic Meditation and Breath Work:
Holotropic breathwork, or fire-breathing uses non-ordinary states of consciousness for purposes of exploring, healing, and obtaining growth and insights into the human psyche. Using various breathing techniques to build internal energy and mental enlightening. This is followed by opening sacred space and sitting within your power. A powerful way to start your day, center and ground yourself.
Various methods using drums, rattles, guided meditation, mirror work to communication with your higher self or spiritual guides in a journey for personal healing and understanding.
Soul Transition (death rites):
For the shamans of Tibet and the Americas, death is the ultimate journey of liberation.
Shamans believe the doorway between worlds closes forty hours after death. The shaman’s work is to perform the great spiral to cleanse the chakras and assist the luminous body to exit and transition. The final step in the death rites is to seal the chakras using the thumb to keep the luminous body from returning to a lifeless physical form.
Home and Business Energy Clearing:
It is important for us all to live work and play in a harmonious environment to maximize our health and wellness. Sometimes our homes or places of work get “heavy” with negative or stuck energies.
Energy clearing should be considered under these circumstances:
• Before you move into a new space
• After you remove clutter from a home
• After a roommate or companion moves out
• After an illness or death
• After robbery or any kind of invasion
• When you feel stuck in your life or work
• You suspect the presence of a negative or malevolent energy
• After a fight, divorce or break-up of a relationship or business
• If you or your children are not sleeping well or are having nightmares
• When things don’t feel balanced in the home or office
Sessions can involve training individuals to manage the energy in their home or office or professional clearings.
Shamanic Energy Medicine
Pediatric CranioSacral Therapy utilizes simple and effective therapeutic techniques to help normalize the child’s structure, balance the nervous system, and resolve traumatic issues of the birth and childhood experience.
Dr. William Sutherland, the founder of Cranial Osteopathy, had a favorite saying. To paraphrase, “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.” An injury, whether seemingly minor or alarmingly significant, has the potential to impact an individual for his or her entire life.
Common reasons parents seek Craniosacral Therapy:
A Pediatric CranioSacral Therapy session begins with a consultation and typically lasts an hour. It is preferable both parents attend each session. It is common for infants to nurse during the session and the practitioner will make necessary accommodations available. The number of sessions recommended depends on the needs and responsiveness of the child. Infants & children often experience a deep state of calm and may fall asleep. Parents often report their infant/child appears more relaxed and peaceful for days after the session, with a cumulative effect over a number of sessions.
Somatic Emotional Release (SER) is often a process that occurs during a CranioSacral Therapy treatment. SER is a body-mind technique which allows the tissues of the body to release memories, some of which may have significant emotional components. Cells and tissues, such as muscle, connective tissue, bone, and organs can store memories related to experiences we have. The SER process happens only if the client is ready and open to heal. It is an effective and safe tool for resolving issues and symptoms that may have been holding up the client’s healing process for years.
YOUR BODY KNOWS AND REMEMBERS EVERYTHING. It holds your entire story. It holds the truth and it holds the belief systems we’ve made up to keep ourselves safe. It has all the information we need to help us move forward and heal.
During an SER, I help you to reconnect your body and soul wisdom, to the parts of yourself that are waiting to be heard and supported, so you can move into a place of balance, freedom, peace and more joy. SER involves engaging in dialogue and visualization, as you connect to the specific area of the body we are addressing. The body remembers everything and it will speak to us through images and sensations. As we explore these images and sensations, key words come up in our dialoging and those words are often attached to memories that have been buried. By shining a light on them, hearing and seeing them, in a safe, supportive space, we can give ourselves permission to feel what we had buried and create room to heal.

Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.
It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Deep Tissue Massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. Unlike other massage techniques that focus on relaxation, deep tissue massage helps to treat muscle pain and improve stiffness. But it can still help to you unwind mentally, too.
A 2014 study involving 59 participants found that Deep Tissue Massage helped to reduce pain in people with chronic low back. The authors likened its effects to those of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen (Advil).
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
Before your Deep Tissue Massage, your massage therapist will want to know about your problem areas. A deep tissue massage can involve your entire body or just one area.
Once ready, you’ll be asked to lie on your back or stomach, under a sheet. Your level of undress is based on your comfort, but the area being worked on will need to be exposed.
The massage therapist will warm up your muscles using a lighter touch. Once you’re warmed up, they’ll start working on your problem areas. They’ll use deep kneading and stroking with varying amounts of intense pressure.
It’s not unusual to have some lingering soreness for a few days following a deep tissue massage. Using a heating pad or a cold pack wrapped in a towel may help to relieve soreness.
Though massage therapy is generally safe, deep tissue massage uses very firm pressure and may not be safe for everyone.
Speak to your doctor before having a Deep Tissue Massage if you:
Anyone with osteoporosis or cancer that’s spread to the bones should avoid deep tissue massage as the firm pressure used may cause a fracture. You should also hold off on deep tissue massages if you’re pregnant. Gentler types of massage, such as Swedish massage, may be a better option.
If you have an open wound or skin infection of any kind, you’ll need to reschedule to avoid developing a new infection or making an existing one worse.
Deep Tissue Massage is best suited for people who engage in highly physical activities, such as running, or those who have an injury or chronic pain. If you have a low pain threshold or are looking for relief of tense muscles, Swedish massage is gentler and may be a better option. Speak to your doctor before trying deep tissue massage if you have an underlying medical condition.
Hot Stone Massage melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each 1 ½ -hour hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body. The direct heat of the stones relaxes the muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers.
Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
Benefits of Hot Stone Massage
The American Cancer Society considers oncology massage "one of the most supportive and helpful complementary therapies available" to patients and views oncology massage as helpful both physically and emotionally because "it soothes the soul and the mind".
What is Oncology Massage?
Oncology massage is a client-specific, customized massage session designed to meet the unique and changing needs of someone in treatment for cancer or with a history of cancer treatment. A safe massage plan generally revolves around the side effects (both short- and long-term) of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Oncology massage can only be provided by a massage therapist who has received training in the specifics of cancer and cancer treatment. This training is more about cancer and less about massage. When you are receiving an oncology massage, you are receiving traditional, established massage therapy techniques that have been adapted to account for your unique health situation. Typical modalities include Swedish massage, reflexology, craniosacral therapy, relaxation and stress reduction massage and manual lymph drainage for oncology patients with lymphedema. The changes that might be made to a massage that makes it an "oncology massage" can fall under any number of categories, but typically they will be related to session length, pressure, positioning and areas of specific compromise or concern like mediports, bone metastases or skin reactions to treatment.
Following Radiation or Chemotherapy
Prenatal Massage is designed to help reduce the stress from hormonal changes and carrying extra weight. Prenatal Massage eases the discomfort and is a very nurturing experience for both mom and fetus.
Prenatal Massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.
The gentle, noninvasive approach of Prenatal Massage can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy, help the mother-to-be prepare for labor and give her nurturing emotional support.
Therapeutic Massage incorporates a variety of advanced modalities that enhance the body’s natural restorative functioning. Light to firm touch is used to release tension, relax muscles, increase blood and lymph circulation, and impart a sense of calm.
Therapeutic Massage can be used as a collaborative, supportive addition to conventional medical treatment of illness and injury, alleviating pain and stress, aiding soft tissue healing, and revitalizing the body.
Regular massage can enhance health, providing relaxation, release of muscle tightness, relief from anxiety and tensions, and balancing aspects of body/mind/spirit.
