ACUPUNCTURE & TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE (TCM)

TCM is an ancient and comprehensive healthcare system with over 4,000 years of history in treating and preventing disease. TCM incorporates several treatment modalities including Acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage), Cupping, Moxabustion, Gua Sha, and Life Style Counseling, including Chinese Nutrition and Exercise. TCM can be used to treat many conditions, ranging from sports injuries, gynecological issues, fertility, digestive discomfort, stress and migraines. According to the World Health Organization, acupuncture alone can be used to treat over forty different illnesses.

Many frequently asked questions pertaining to Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology include the following: how many treatments are needed, does it hurt, how do I take the herbs, what type of needles are used, how quickly can I see results, how does acupuncture work, has acupuncture been clinically proven, are Chinese herbs save to take, and can other medical procedures be continued. All of these questions are answered in Jutta's TCM flyer available at Shakti.

ENERGY WORK (Craniosacral & Polarity Therapy)

Tory’s form of energy work is an integration of two modalities: Craniosacral  and Polarity Therapy.  Craniosacral therapy assists the fluids and membranes that surround the brain and spinal chord to unwind and balance.  It also helps the body activate its internal healing capacity.  While it is a modality that works with a physical system, it also works with the subtle body systems to promote healing on the energetic and spiritual levels.  Polarity Therapy is the practice of stimulating and balancing the flow of life energy within the human energy bodies. During an energy work session, a client can choose to receive just Craniosacral Therapy, Polarity Therapy, or a blend of the two therapies during one session.

Rates: 60 minutes - $85, 6 Sessions for $425 (plus tax)

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE MASSAGE FOR UPPER &/or LOWER BODY

Myofascial tissue is continuous and omnipresent in the body. It interweaves and wraps muscles, and every division of tissue within the muscle. By weight, 40% of a muscle is fascial tissue. Where there is chronic or acute pain, limited or difficult range of motion, ongoing stress and tension, there is almost always myofascial tissue which needs to be released and relaxed. The techniques are derived from Hellerwork, which is a gentler derivative of Rolfing.

This is deep work, with sensation. The immediate result is more freedom of movement.

Rates: 60 minutes $85 ~ 90 minutes $125 (plus tax)
Harmony Series: 3/60 minute sessions $240 ~ 3/90 minute sessions $360 (plus tax)

RAINDROP TECHNIQUE

Created in the 1980’s by D. Gary Young, N.D., based on his research with the Lakota Indians, therapeutic grade essential oils are dropped like rain along the spine and then worked into the skin with various light massage techniques. Within moments the oils are absorbed through the skin into the nerves and tissues of the body.

Wonderfully soothing, nurturing, and relaxing, Raindrop Technique can work its benefits in immediate and profound ways with long lasting effects.  Deep relaxation, increased energy, enhanced immunity, detoxification, relief of aches and pains, renewed flexibility, postural alignment, a sense of peacefulness and feelings of well being are just some of Raindrop Techique's extraordinary benefits.

Please shower before your session so the essential oils may stay on as long as possible (ideally overnight).  Wear or bring clothing that is machine washable, as some residual oils may absorb into your clothing after the session.  Plan on drinking 2 or 3 glasses of water after your Raindrop session. The essential oils bring nutrition into your cells and may cause your tissues to release toxins into your blood stream, lymph and skin. The water will facilitate this detoxification process.  Schedule a time for your appointment so you can relax afterwards.

Rates: 60 minutes - $85, 3 Sessions for $240 (plus tax)
To Schedule: contact Anna Winkler, Debra Bernath or Tory Kragt

REIKI

Reiki is a form of energy healing. The history of Reiki goes back to Dr. Mikao Usui in the late 1800’s. Although “the laying on of hands” for healing dates back 2,500 years with the oldest written accounts tracing back to the Tibetan Lotus Sutras. The Reiki practitioner is trained and also receives a series of attunements by a Reiki Master. This opens the channels for healing energy to flow through the practitioner. Energy is everywhere. Everything and everyone is made of energy. Reiki channels healing energy through the attuned practitioner to the recipient for healing. Reiki can be done with or without touch. A practitioner will either touch you lightly or hover just above you. It is entirely up to the preference of the recipient. During a typical Reiki session the aura is cleared along with the chakras. Most people will benefit from three sessions to complete the clearing. Reiki can be sent to areas of illness in the body as well. Many people experience improvement. A Reiki session is beneficial to everyone.

THAI ABDOMINAL MASSAGE 

A melding of Chi Nei Tsang or Taoist/Chinese abdominal massage and Thai soft abdomen massage, these techniques work to help your body heal abdominal issues. There is much confusion about food and health. We have many digestive and emotional issues surrounding and trapped in the soft abdomen, inhibiting correct function. In Thai massage we approach the body not as a machine, but as an organic structure with an energy system and an emotional system that can both change the structure and physiology of the physical organism. The focus of the massage is on detoxifying and assisting the very important digestive process. If we cannot digest effectively we will have no energy, if we cannot de-toxify we will feel irritable and uncomfortable. 

We start with the top layer of the body, the skin, to detoxify it. We work into the facial layer, unblocking adhesions, facial chains and releasing scars. We work on the main muscles of the abdomen to relax them. We work on the digestive system from stomach to rectum, shifting blockages. Finally, we work the sen lines (meridians) of the abdomen (Sea of Qi), as this stimulates the body's natural desire for optimal health.

This is deep work, with sensation. Multiple sessions are recommended. 

Rates: 60 minutes $85 ~ 90 minutes $125 (plus tax)
Harmony Series: 3/60 minute sessions $240 ~ 3/90 minute sessions $360 (plus tax)
