About Shiatsu

Shiatsu is Japanese bodywork whose framework is based on the energy channels of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  The word ‘shiatsu’ means ‘finger pressure’.  Shiatsu is done by applying variable pressure to the acupressure points along the channels using combinations of fingers, thumbs, palms, elbows.  Stretching and joint mobilization can also be incorporated.  These actions both disperse energy blocks and strengthen the Qi, stimulating the healing force of the body and restoring balance and harmony.

 
 
If anything is Sacred, the Human Body is Sacred.

About TUI NA

Tui na is a form of Chinese therapy that stimulates the acupressure points through pushing and pulling, kneading, rolling, or shaking.  These actions restore the body to a harmonious flow of energy promoting the action of the body’s innate healing force.

About qigong

Medical Qigong includes working directly on the body or over the body in the energy field to aid in balancing the qi flow.  It also includes teaching qigong movements as a way of coming back into flow and balance.

 
 
The ancient Indian holy men understood what modern science has since proven: that the entire cosmos is “an ocean of vibration,” the source of all manifestation.
— Dr. Mitchell Gaynor
The goal of sound healing is that every moment of our life and every action be in harmony with the Universal Energy Field.
— Dr. John Beaulieu

About Sound Healing

Sound healing is a fundamental form of healing.  Science recognizes that the Universe is a field of vibration.  Everything vibrates. Health is the result of being in harmony at the cellular level.  When dissonance occurs, balance is lost.  Using sound and vibration, we can recover and be restored to experiencing harmony and connection to the internal and external environments of  our lives.

Sound healing stimulates the production of nitric oxide setting off a cascade of physiological events that include:

  • Enhanced cell vitality, vascular flow, and heart healing

  • A stronger immune system and increased ability to prevent and fight infections

  • More resistance to stress and greater levels of energy and stamina

  • Sharper mental clarity and diminished states of depression due to the balancing of the autonomic nervous system

  • Improved digestion and natural cleansing

These are the results of Dr. John Beaulieu's research as noted by Silvia Nakkach in her book Free Your Voice.
