Acupuncture uses hair thin needles to direct body energy
and stimulate the release of blocked 'Chi' energy, allowing
the body to heal itself. Acupuncture is used to treat
many problems, from immune disorder to asthma -- or
simply for relieving stress.
Reflexology is a natural holistic therapy, based on
the concept that every part of the body is connected
by energy pathways to reflex points in the hands, feet
and head. By applying controlled pressure to specific
points, vital energy pathways are unblocked, and the
body's own healing energy can restore physical and mental
well-being and boost the body's immune system.
Reiki is a ancient hands-on healing form that addresses the
body, mind and spirit, treating the root cause of dis-ease

apply these techniques through an initiation session.

have been traumatized, restoring balance and function to misaligned
Yoga is an ancient healing practice which teaches you to get
in touch with your body and your breath. Iyengar yoga is a
form that advocates precise alignment, with the use of props
if necessary. Combining stretches and 'asanas', yoga is an
ideal way to learn to balance flexibility and strength; and
with practice, to quiet your mind.
