Visualization & Somatic Therapy
Visualization (also called guided imagery) is a technique of focusing your mind on behaviors or events that you would like to have occur in your life. It involves creating a detailed image in your mind of what you desire, and then visualizing it over and over again while using all of your senses.
The practice is based on the notion that your body and mind are connected. By providing positive imagery and self-suggestion, visualization can change emotions that you hold which subsequently have a physical effect on the body, thus allowing healing to begin.
At times when visualizing what we want, past trauma may appear in order to be healed. Through developing awareness of the mind-body connection and using specific interventions, somatic therapy helps you to release stuck emotions and trauma that remain in your body from these past negative experiences.
You are energy. The earth is energy. We are constantly surrounded by and interacting with energy. Energy must be able to flow freely, without blockages in the body - Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel universal energy into the patient by means of touch to activate natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have utilized the power of crystals to release mental, physical, and spiritual blockages, thus facilitating the free flow of energy throughout the body.
Crystal and gemstone healing uses the body's inherent vibrational energy to nourish and treat the whole person and their integrated energy system by moving, focusing, absorbing, and directing energy based upon each gemstone's therapeutic properties.
Aromatic plant extracts and essential oils are used through inhalation or as a topical application. Inhaling essential oils stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain connected to smell, including the nose and the brain. Molecules that enter the nose or mouth pass to the lungs, and from there, to other parts of the body. If applied topically, they are absorbed through the skin, thus passing into the circulatory system throughout the body.
Each extract and essential oil property can be used to improve psychological or physical well-being. It can be offered as a complementary therapy or as a form of alternative medicine.
Cupping is a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy commonly used to reduce pain, alleviate muscle tension, assist to stimulate blood circulation, and bring essential nutrients to the tissues through the suction of glass or plastic cups to the muscle tissue.
Cupping may aid in muscle recovery after vigorous workouts and stimulates the immune system by subtly detoxing the body (Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps utilizes this treatment for muscle recovery, for example.)
Many cultures believe that this is a safe and effective therapy for restoring energy flow and balance.
