Mind Body Spirit

  • Yoga


    Yoga is a scientific system that is over 5000 years old. Its practice purifies the body and mind providing mastery over the senses so that we may develop our emotions and intellect to a level at which we function healthfully and in perfect harmony. Instruction includes practical postures, simple breathing techniques, and deep relaxation. These practices have been used by millions of people over thousands of years to break through limitations, gain self-mastery and confidence, and to experience the deep sense of Peace that is our True Nature. No experience is necessary. Sessions occur one-on-one or group/family sessions can be arranged.

  • Reiki


    Reiki has its origins in Japan. The word Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy. The healing energy of Reiki flows from a Universal Source through the Reiki practitioner to the recipient. It is not the practitioner’s energy being directed to the recipient. The practitioner is a trained vehicle for the Universal Energy to flow. The recipient naturally draws the energy where it is needed to release physical dis-ease, mental turbulence, emotional turmoil, and spiritual disconnection. Recipients normally lie down on a treatment table clothed or remain in a sitting position. The practitioner utilizes hand positions on or above the body. The recipient may experience sensations of warmth, tingling, deep relaxation and general well-being. Reiki Training is also available which allows for the application of Self-Healings and learning to practice Reiki with other.

  • Therapeutic Massage

    Therapeutic Massage

    Therapeutic Massage is a hands-on ancient healing art that systemically manipulates the body’s skin, muscles, and connective tissue to release tension, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being. The massage therapist applies various massage techniques and varying degrees of pressure to attain therapeutic benefit. Massage can be received lying down on a massage table or sitting in a massage chair. The recipient may be fully or partially unclothed while always respectfully covered by sheets during the treatment.

  • Mindfulness Meditation

    Mindfulness Meditation

    Includes clearing the mind from distracting thoughts through concentration and focus. The form, purpose, and content of meditation vary and are designed by the instructor in collaboration with the client to meet individual preferences and needs. No experience is necessary. Simple, easy to use meditations can bring profound benefit. Undesirable thoughts lose their potency and influence. Over time sabotaging behaviors have less power and healthier choices lead to habits that shape daily success and the achievement of future goals.
