The soothing hum of the Tibetan singing bowls are a powerful way to shift the mind into stillness and reduce stress.  They create a sea of sound that is deeply relaxing, this activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which naturally supports the increase of disease fighting immune cells to balance the over hyper, over-taxed sympathetic nervous system.  The vibration reverberates through over and around the body to gently relax and soothe.

  Qigong Energy Healing is done in conjunction with the practice of Tibetan Singing Bowls.  The practice emits Qi energy allowing it to enter deep into the body through a feeling of heat or vibration. Qigong Energy Healing is known to unblock, free or balance someone’s Qi (Ji, Chi).  Unhealthy cellular energy can be felt as heat being picked up from the hands of your practitioner.  Your healer uses their hands to break up the energy blockages.

Private Seated Qigong sessions.  This program is created just for the client being worked with. The wellness needs are taken into consideration. Seated Qigong provides relief from anxiety arthritis and pain.   Seated Qigong consists of gentle stretching and fluid movements, while increasing flexibility. This practice is especially helpful for people who have had or waiting for surgery that would provide pain relief of any kind.  According to the NIH the practice of Qigong positively alters the sensation of pain.

Wellness Consultation, Sessions are started with informational gathering, (what a client feels they need to heal, so you are best able to be served. The consultation addresses the root causes in lifestyle, nutrition and improving thought patterns that aren’t serving the highest good.  Often diet and supplement suggestions are gone through to energize the body as needed.  A wellness plan is created through the session with a follow-up email for any other relevant suggestions.
