LED LIGHT THERAPY:

Light, the fundamental energy of the universe, is essential to all life. The ancient Egyptian and Chinese cultures were known to use light therapies for treating everything from skin diseases to mental disorders. 

Today, LED/Near Infrared Light Therapy is considered a “quantum leap” for modern medicine.

LED/NIR Light Therapy effectively stimulates the body’s innate and powerful healing capacity to repair, regenerate, and rebuild.  As the light is absorbed by the body’s tissues, nitric oxide is production is stimulated, creating a cascade of therapeutic benefits. These benefits include increased circulation, oxygenation, pain relief, decreased inflammation, blood pressure regulation, and mood elevation. Light Therapy also stimulates ATP production, which is the major source of energy produced by the cells for all metabolic functions, cellular repair, and cellular regeneration.

Some of the typical applications for LED/NIR Therapy are:

Arthritis                    Neuropathy
Anti-aging                Pain
Brain disorder          Scar tissue
Broken bones           Skin rejuvenation
Diabetes                   Teeth/gums
Fibromyalgia            Recovery
Inflammation            Traumatic Brain injury
Injuries                     Wounds
Neuralgia

In a Light Therapy session light pads are placed on specific areas of the body, creating a soothing, warm feeling, and deep relaxation. In one session, blood flow is increased to the nerves and other tissues. This revitalization of circulation and oxygenation continues for several hours.
Light, comfortable clothing is recommended.

“We are all light deficient and this deficiency may be the source of our physical and emotional problems.”

                                                                      Dr. John Ott


JIN SHIN JYUTSU:

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese healing art of harmonizing the life energy in the body, mind and spirit. Born of innate wisdom centuries ago, the art was passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth. In the early 1900’s, the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai.  After curing himself of a life-threatening illness, Master Murai devoted the rest of his life to the research and development of Jin Shin Jyutsu.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a gentle, yet profound, style of touch therapy for balancing energy, and stimulating the body’s innate ability to heal. It relieves stress, and promotes deep relaxation throughout the body. Jin Shin Jyutsu employs what are known as “safety energy locks” (SEL’s) along the energy pathways which circulate the vital life force energy throughout our bodies. The SEL’s, of which there are 26 on each side of the body, are access points to the body’s energy pathways (similar to acupuncture principle). When one or more pathways become blocked, the resulting stagnation can cause pain, and if left untreated, eventually result in dis-ease in the body. 

Lightly holding a series of the safety energy locks in succession, with hands or fingertips, dissolves the blockages, re-opening the flow of energy, effectively restoring balance, harmony, and health back to the body, mind, and spirit.

A Jin Shin Jyutsu session lasts an hour. The client reclines comfortably, and fully clothed, on a massage table, while gentle acupressure is applied by the practitioner.


REIKI:

Reiki is an alternative energy modality developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Reiki translates to mean “spiritually guided life-force energy”.

Reiki is administered by an attuned Reiki practitioner by placing her/his hands lightly on, or over the client’s body to facilitate the flow of life-force energy, facilitating the client’s process of healing. The Reiki energy flows through the client's body and charges them with positive, healing energy. It raises awareness in and around the physical body, releasing negative energy such as stress, anxiety, pain, emotions, and clearing the energy pathways.

A Reiki session lasts about an hour. The client typically reclines on a massage table, but Reiki can be administered sitting or standing as well. One can also receive Reiki from a distance.


Head/Neck, Hands, and Feet Massage and Acupressure Treatment: 

A deeply relaxing and therapeutic blend of massage and gentle acupressure applied to the head/neck, hands and feet. This treatment calms the nervous system, quiets the mind, and stimulates reflex points for the entire body.
