Reiki is a Japanese technique that is used to reduce stress and anxiety. It promotes relaxation and inner peace. By moving the old, stagnant energy out of your body, you are essentially allowing room for the positive. Reiki is administered by the “laying of hands” (hands can be touching the body or hovering) over the body while sitting or laying down. “Life force energy” is what flows through us. It’s what makes us feel alive. We need to balance that energy regularly due to our daily interactions and life experiences which can create imbalances or disease in the body.
We have seven major chakras running straight through the core of our bodies down our spine. We also have numerous other chakras, but we will primarily be working with the major ones.These seven chakras are where the energies of our body come together. During a session you will receive reiki and we will focus on the Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra and Crown Chakra. Crystals, Tibetan singing bowls and chanting are often resources used to balance your Ki; your energy.
Shared directly from Upledger website: “CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.”
This is a system using pressure points located on the hands and feet. The purpose is to relieve tension and treat illnesses located in the body. During this session Melissa will start off with a guided meditation of breath to lead you into a state of peace and relaxation. The session will continue with reiki and as she moves to your hands and/or your feet she will incorporate the reflexology pressure points. Prior to working on the feet, Melissa will wrap each foot in a warm towel to bring ease and comfort as well as a cleanliness to the area.
This session differs from all others. In this session Melissa will do a shamanic journey. Simply put, she will do an interactive meditation on your behalf as she drums. The drumming is said to represent the heartbeat of mother earth. The purpose of this constant rhythm is to allow the brain waves to shift from alpha to theta. This allows the practitioner to go into a subtle trance like state where she can pick up on deeper insights in order to help you heal. This is a powerful healing session that goes deep beyond relaxation of the mind. It is part of healing of the soul.
“If walls could talk” is a true statement indeed. With all the energy that floats through a home it is important to clear it regularly. This is something Melissa can teach you. If you are looking for a cleansing of entities, “bad energy” or a feeling of heaviness, Melissa will come to your home and do a full space clearing ceremony. This goes beyond burning sage and opening the windows. Every home is different, therefore each ceremony is crafted especially for you and your needs.
Flower essences are infusions of flowers in water. They are stabilized in a solution of brandy to eliminate bacteria from growing and water. They contain no scent or perfume. The essence of the flower is different from essential oils. The original Bach Flower Remedies is a safe and natural method of healing discovered by Dr. Bach in the 1920-30th in England. When working with flower essences they are capable of restoring the balance between mind, body and spirit by casting out negative emotions. They do away with emotions like worry, hate, indecision, negative self image, addiction and much more! These negative emotions cause an imbalance in the body as a whole. Flower Essences allow peace and happiness to return to the sufferer.
Animals are in tune to energy and they have no judgement. When doing Reiki on animals they are able to receive by instinct with ease and grace. There is no expectation or skepticism. That makes working with animals a beautiful gift as you are able to watch the undeniable healing unfold naturally in front of your eyes. When doing Reiki on any type of animal you do not need to be hands on. It is a non invasive way to help heal your animal with any mental, emotional or physical issues that they may be experiencing. Hands on touch is optional if the animal is comfortable with that. They can also be walking around or resting and still be receiving.
