Spiritual Healing Touch is a gentle energy balancing technique, which harmonizes spiritual, physical, and emotional health for healing. Research and anecdotal evidence supports healing touch for the following:  reducing anxiety and stress, promoting relaxation, decreasing pain, accelerating healing, enhancing spiritual connection and sense of well-being.

Energy work complements conventional healthcare, facilitating relaxation and supports the natural healing potential of body, mind and spirit.

Treatments involve the laying-on of hands directly on the body or allowing them to hover above the body.  If desired, the use of therapeutic grade essential oils may be used for a wide variety of emotional, physical and spiritual wellness applications.  The healing practitioner is simply the channel through which the healing energy flows to the recipient.  Touch in itself can be very healing, when practiced with an intention of honoring the person, and it can be even more effective when healing energy is transmitted.   

While a treatment often brings an easing of physical symptoms, many people say that the relaxation along with the emotional and spiritual uplift is its foremost benefit.   

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing for these sessions.

Alexander Technique

Alexander Technique:  A system of re-education that is both preventative and corrective.

 

Natural ease of movement is inherent in our human design as it is in the rest of the animal kingdom.  However, age, time, injury, tension, stress, and poor movement habits can lead people down a path to discomfort, chronic pain, poor posture and fatigue. The Alexander Technique is a means to change that course and help alleviate such detrimental effects.  

 

F.M. Alexander, the originator of this technique was convinced that the mind, body and spirit were interconnected.  Not only do our thoughts affect our feelings and contribute to muscular tensions, but the way in which we sit, stand and move can alter the way in which we think and feel.   

 

Through the teacher’s verbal, visual, and hands-on instruction, the client learns the necessary skills to recognize and eliminate harmful habits that create unnecessary tension and holding patterns.  In addition, the client learns different ways of moving (sitting, standing, walking, bending, reaching, etc.) with more ease and efficiency, thus reducing wear and tear on body structure, systems and internal organs.  Thus, this work is preventative healthcare as well as corrective. 

The client will come to experience gravity as an ally, and learn how to voluntarily trigger anti-gravity reflexes and regain the deep structural support of our human design.  As one learns to calm one’s nervous system and use less effort in everyday activities, one finds oneself enlivened and having more energy. 

F.M. Alexander, the originator of this technique was convinced that the mind, body and spirit were interconnected.  Not only do our thoughts affect our feelings and contribute to muscular tensions, but the way in which we sit, stand and move can alter the way in which we think and feel.   

How we think is as much a part of the Alexander Technique as how we move. In essence, the technique is a way of using our minds in a conscious manner so that we are able to efficiently direct our bodies in order to keep them as stress-free as possible.

This work is about awareness, self-development, fully embodying one’s self, and, ultimately, exercising choice in how we respond to our internal thoughts and feelings as well as our external circumstances and our environment.  The main qualities to have in this process are an attitude of curiosity (and a sense of humor) about one’s self, patience and an open mind.  

The Alexander Technique can help to

  • Lessen anxiety and depression

  • Alleviate chronic pain

  • Improve flexibility and stamina

  • Develop deeper breathing and deeper sleep

  • Increase mental alertness and well-being

  • Improve posture and self-image 

  • Enhance performance skills and poise

 

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing for these lessons.
