Therapies & Energy Healing

Crystal Healing
Crystals are made of the same materials as our bodies. Their structures are more stable, which makes their color signatures more harmonious. Placing different crystals on key points and chakras on the body stabilizes our own molecular structures and activates a resonant harmonization of all body functions and fluids. Crystal healing can leave you with a deep sense of peace, renewed creativity and “crystal” clear vision of life.

Energy Body Healing
Through deep abdominal massage and activation of the central nervous system, I assist you to awaken the cellular memories of the causes of erroneous patterns. I use everything I have acquired in my learning and practice, and my innate intuitive skills, to support you in the cleansing and alignment of your energy field for a new start and for a new perception of the reality you are creating. A space opens to gently switch and transform the relationship you have created towards pain, anxiety, anger, frustration, etc., into more self-empowering, growing and loving patterns.

Reiki Session
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with healing energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached, which causes the ill energy to be transformed. In doing so, Reiki clears, straightens and heals energy pathways, thus allowing life force to flow in a healthy, natural way.

Facial Rejuvenation
The whole “expression” of our lives and of who we are is locked in the face. The wrinkles, the quality of the skin, the tightness in the jaws are like an open book telling the story of our experiences and the way we perceive life. The gentle touch of focused acupressure with crystals (teishins) will bring back the innocence with which a child explores the world – the muscles relax, the wrinkles stretch, a smile is born in your heart again. The freshness of the natural masks makes your skin breathe a new life and new opportunities. Love yourself and the world will love you, too!
Therapeutic Massage

Neuro-lymphatic Massage
This therapeutic massage is based upon the knowledge of reflexes. Reflexes are nerve endings located at different areas of the body, which stimulate the proper functioning of organs and tissues. Through this very precise and orderly massage, using Dr. Chapman`s neuro-lymphatic points, all body structures are stimulated to cleanse and purge toxins and all substances foreign to the body. Different effects can be expected from obtaining natural states of deep relaxation; cleansing allergies; purging cellulites from the tissues; etc.; up to releasing twisted or out of place bones and joints to their natural state of being and bringing disabled muscles to their proper functions. Continuous treatments (every 48 hrs) with this massage can lead to deep purification of all liquids in the body – lymph and blood, to improved immune function, blood circulation, digestion, assimilation and elimination. The inner and outer states of the body feel and appear simply sparkling!

Abdominal Massage of the Internal Organs – Chi Nei Tsang
This method of deep abdominal work is based upon Chi-Nei-Tsang – Chi – “energy”; Nei – “internal”; and Tsang – “organ”, Chi Nei Tsang is a special branch of the Traditional Chinese Medicine using abdominal diagnosis and working with balancing the energy of the meridians and applying precise and deep manipulation on the internal organs of the abdomen. Especially valuable for all kinds of problems which can`t be solved with acupuncture, diet or herbal supplements. Chronic health problems, digestive disorders, after-birth support and rebalancing of the system, to name a few conditions easily taken care of with Chi Nei Tsang. This massage also uses the neuro-lymphatic reflexes of Dr. Chapman in purpose to balance the nervous system and to relax the body, so all organs and functions are reset to their best operational state. Many times, despite good diet and adequate herbal supplements, massaging the abdomen in a skilled way, can improve digestion and chronic conditions of the back.

Shiatsu
This therapy follows the meridian pathways through acupressure with deep, rhythmic breathing to regulate stress factors in the nervous system and to activate vitality. If structural and muscular problems exist, auricular therapy can be used to precisely act on the injury or the chronic pattern the body is holding. It can be used as a preventive treatment to increase body comfort, vitality and emotional well-being, as well as a healing treatment to help balance the body, from its cellular structure to misbehaving emotions or heavy thoughts to come to a state of harmony, peace and joy.

Reflexology and Foot Massage
Reflexology is a holistic healing method that involves pressure and massage of the reflex points found on the feet and hands. The word “reflex” means to reflect. Pressure points on your hands and feet reflect all the parts of your body, both internal and external: organs and glands as well as limbs, torso and head. Each point reflects the activity of another part of the body. Reflexology is extremely helpful by stimulating the body`s self-healing mechanisms, and is without any side effects. Through stimulation of the circulatory and lymphatic systems, thus encouraging the release of toxins, Reflexology encourages the body to heal itself.
