The Healing ARts
Reiki is a hands-on healing technique which balances the energy in our body. it induces a state of deep relaxation and heals on several different levels, depending on the need of the recipient. It is effective against stress, insomnia, mental and physical imbalances. Depending on your situation, results can show after three to four sessions, though many people feel a difference after the first treatment.
Reiki is not a massage. there is no pressure applied, and in some instances, there is no physical contact. You will be asked to lie on a massage table and remove all jewelry and belts. the Reiki practitioner then places her hands on the recipient, holding hand positions for several minutes. A typical session last 45-60 min, with a few minutes before and after.
Meditation is a simple yet powerful tool for healing. By quieting the mind, we can be fully in the present and better suited to face the challenges of daily life.
Meditation instruction can be integrated into your Reiki energy healing session.
Aside from being a superfood filled with antioxidants (200 times more than blueberries), magnesium and other mood enhancing components, cacao is a heart opener and will take those who heed her call on an inner journey filled with beauty and grounded in our planet's nurturing love. Experience a magical cup of ceremonial cacao, the bitter brew regarded as the food of the Gods by the Mayan and the Aztecs.
As part of a holistic approach to wellbeing, the Gassho Center offers several forms of yoga. In Yin Yoga, poses are held on the floor for several minutes, allowing the body to soften and gently open. This is the flip side of the Yang styles such as Ashtanga, Vinyasa or Power Yoga, which are more active and make you sweat.
Restorative Yoga is similar to Yin Yoga insofar as the poses are held on the floor for several minutes. The main difference here is the use of props (pillows, bolsters, blankets) which fully support the body. In Yin, you find the amount of sensation that is suitable for you, playing with pushing this further each time, while in Restorative, we are looking for the least sensation for the deepest stillness.
In a Reiki Yoga session, Reiki energy healing is given to the person while they are in a Restorative Yoga pose.
