Colon Hydrotherapy: Treat your body to a real cleanse.

Excessive stress and bad diet combined together have taken us to a whole new level of having to cope with life. Our colon is now finding it so hard to eliminate toxicity, taking over our whole body throughout the years, that one might start showing an array of symptoms ranging from constant bloating, constipation, fatigue, irritability, skin troubles, headaches, indigestion and so on. 

In today's lifestyle, it is even more essential to keep one's colon healthy.

Colonic hydrotherapy is a safe and gentle technique used for the colon's cleansing, which in turn, is beneficial to the whole body. An internal cleansing of the colon, using purified water, allows an in depth removal of wastes, mucus and gases, helping the colon to a better nutrients absorption, and to re-tone and re-shape it. The water circulates throughout your colon in order to encourage and stimulate the bowel to empty itself. Waste products are then passed out of your body. It gives a sensation of lightness and clarity both physically and mentally. So can be extremely beneficial to the whole body and helps in clearing skin, improves circulation, mental clarity, enhances detoxification, better digestion and relieves bloating and heaviness.

Typical session time is about 50 minutes.

Acupuncture:  You can sum up health in one word: circulation!

Acupuncture is based on the principal that health is maintained by a balanced circulation of energy throughout the body.  The Chinese refer to energy as "Qi." Acupuncture produces verifiable results by establishing both balance and insuring the continual flow of this vibrational vital energy, (in other words circulation).  Because it is an energetic model of medicine that works with Qi and cannot be seen by the naked eye, it can actually be more likened to physics than to Western medicine. 

The following are a few scientifically verified effects of acupuncture that were measurable by Western diagnostics:

·        It supports and balances organ systems so that detoxification can take place on a cellular level more quickly, (this in turn allows for emotional detoxing as well).

·        It treats pain by affecting neurological transmitters and related chemicals in the central nervous system, (i.e. serotonin, dopamine and epinephrine).

·        It increases both the flow of calcium in broken bones and micro circulation.  

·        It can normalize blood pressure and encourage better circulation to hands and feet.

·        It supports immune system by increasing white blood cell count.

Tui Na, (very relaxing spinal massage done through clothing), is offered in each session.  Tui Na encourages spinal alignment allowing the body to move more effortlessly and strengthening the back, with palpable results in each treatment.  It compliments acupuncture by setting up the body for deep relaxation before the needles are placed.  The spine is not just about back pain, it represents how we carry ourselves in the world and how much energy we have to move forward! 

Our minds and bodies are forced into a disconnect mode with all of the mental and physical stresses and toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis.  These two treatment types in turn compliment colon hydrotherapy and Reiki by further encouraging detox.  Releasing in this way is foundational to Chinese Medicine.  Improving or cultivating positive energy for the mind or body are far less likely while toxins are present!

Typical session time is about 50 minutes; initial session w/ intake 80 minutes.

Reiki:  In safe hands

Reiki (pronounced ray-kee), is a Japanese healing discipline which works with a persons universal life energy. It is an ancient and powerful art of hands on healing which promotes the body’s ability to heal physical ailments, while opening the mind and spirit to the causes of pain – both physical and emotional trauma.

Many illnesses are a result of blockages in your energy system. Reiki works to clear and balance these, and is particularly effective for strengthening the immune system, which promotes accelerated healing. By reducing stress and anxiety, the body, mind, emotions and spirit come into balance, hence, bringing about better health and well-being. 

A treatment also addresses the physical, covering organs, glands and lymph nodes, thus promoting the healing of cells in the body. It can help relieve pain, shock, tissue trauma, acute and chronic illnesses, while restoring harmony and vitality.

A Reiki treatment is a relaxing and enjoyable experience. It is totally safe and you remain fully clothed throughout the treatment. The practitioner can accomplish the healing with hands placed on the body or not, by guiding the client to open their energy centers, reconnecting you to Source.

Typical session time is about 50 minutes; initial session w/ intake 80 minutes.

Vibrational/Sound Therapy

Long ago the Ayurvedic sage, Charuk, stated that vibration and massage could come together to affect the treatment of many illnesses. He called this synergy “samvahan,” a Sanskrit word meaning “re-awakening of tissue,” it also described what the vibrations of crystal and Tibetan bowls can achieve. And indeed that is what the beautiful tones and overtones do: they bring new life to stagnated parts, and they re-awaken the healing powers within the body.

The human body can be compared to an orchestra, where each organ, tissue, and cell is like a different instrument. Just like in an orchestra, the individual parts all have different tones, overtones and unique attributes that have to be tuned in order to play harmoniously together. The singing bowl therapist works like a music conductor.

The combination between the sound of the bowl perceived through the ear, and the vibrations of the bowl through the flesh of the body, has a healing effect on body, mind, and soul. The external vibrations of the tapped bowl cause the cells to resonate, the sound waves spreading everywhere, (the body is more than 70% water, thus a great conductor of sound and vibration).

Vibration/Sound therapy is a powerful adjunct therapy for almost any illness..
