  • Energy Work Sessions are performed on a massage table while the client is fully clothed.

  • Why would I choose an energy work session? 

    • Energy work is great for reducing feelings of anxiety and depression as well as complementing traditional western medicine when you are being treated for illnesses that may have already aggravated inflammatory responses in the body. Schedule an energy work session when you need to clear your mind so that you can focus more effectively or when pressure from a massage may aggravate a condition you are experiencing.

    • "Energy medicine is both a complement to other approaches to medical care and a complete system for self-care and self-help. It can address physical illness and emotional or mental disorders, and can also promote high-level wellness and peak performance." http://www.energymed.org/pages/energy_medicine_what_is.htm

  • Why do you use tuning forks?  

    • Because your body needs a tune up! In all seriousness, we are made of energy, and energy travels in waves. Sound travels in waves as well, and various pitches have different frequencies. The premise behind tuning forks is that all of our organs and tissues, and even the entire body, has an optimal vibrational frequencies that is "set" at birth.  This combination of frequencies is unique to each individual and as we go through life can become "out of tune" just like a musical instrument! Playing the different frequencies of the tuning forks in specific order, at set points at the body, can help reset the frequencies to where they were at birth, through the principle of resonant frequencies. 

    • Because these frequencies are unique to each individual, tuning fork therapy is not recommended for expectant mothers, organ transplant recipients or clients with pacemakers. Read more here: http://www.tuningforktherapy.com/whats_new_17.html

  • What are Shamanic Techniques? 

    • First, "Shamanism" is a practice that involves a practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness in order to perceive and interact with a spirit world and channel these transcendental energies into this world.  These practices vary within cultures throughout the world, but I use those I have studied and those that have been passed down to me from my Peruvian ancestors. 

  • What is Crystal Healing? 

    • Stones and crystals are said to have unique healing properties.  Placing specific stones at specific places on or near the body to facilitate healing is a practice found within many cultures throughout the world.

  • What is Reiki? 

    • Reiki is an ancient Japanese energy medicine practice for stress reduction and relaxation that facilitates the body's ability to heal itself. "It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy." http://www.reiki.org/faq/whatisreiki.html

"A J used her tuning forks and some peppermint oil to help me get some relief from my sinuses. This really opened me up and I can still breathe better today. This was done yesterday. I loved it and would definitely recommend her services."
