In-person Therapy Session

We have an array of tools to help you tap into your inner knowing so you can find your center and peace for your soul! This session is excellent for anyone in physical, mental or spiritual crisis. Some of the tools we incorporate in this session are:

Crystal & Gem Therapy: crystals bring color and light into the aura and physical body via the subtle layers of the body through vibration and resonance. They can also be used in specific grid patterns of sacred geometry that create pillars of light opening the body to multidimensional awareness and understanding.

Craniosacral Therapy: energy-based modality which uses very light touch to detect and correct disruptions in the soft tissue and fluids of the spine all the way from the brain to the tail bone.

Home & Business Cleansing: This technique focuses in clearing out the energy from fear, anger, words and emotions stuck in the energetic field of the place. The results will leave the place more inviting, accommodating and harmonious.

Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves placing physical pressure on different acupuncture points on the surface of the body to stimulate the flow of energy. The body’s energy meridians act as an energetic blueprint of the physical body. Often with tension, trauma or disease, energy becomes restricted and stimulating the movement of that energy can bring varying levels of and often-dramatic relief.

Specifically designed for those who require relief from deep aches and pain, this massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, tight lower backs, and sore shoulders. When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. A deep-tissue massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly.
