Quantum Touch - This is an energy healing modality based on resonance and entrainment. Quantum Touch healing work is accomplished by linking breathing and body awareness techniques. This raises the vibration or energy level of the practitioner, which is then matched by the vibration or energy level of the recipient. Once the practitioner is holding a strong energy field, they place their hands on the affected areas of the body that require healing. In time, the energy of the person's body rises to match the energy of the practitioners hands. In most cases, symptoms are quickly relieved or eliminated. When things vibrate at different frequencies, there is a tendency for them to match or entrain. A "healer" can be defined as someone who was sick and got well and a "great healer" as someone who was very sick and got well quickly. The practitioner is not really healing anyone, but rather holding a field of energy/information that the other person can use to accelerate their own healing. This is why we say that all healing is really self-healing. The life-force energy can accelerate healing, and it works with complexity and wisdom that are beyond our conception and comprehension. The energy follows the natural intelligence of the body to do the necessary healing. A session usually lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to 60 minutes.

Gong Meditation - I have a beautiful 32' Paiste symphonic gong. When played, the gong generates powerful multi-dimensional ripples of sound that grow into waves and "bathe" your entire body in streams of sounds. Over time your body entrains with these sound waves and your brain relaxes into a deep meditative state creating harmony within the body. In this state people can experience daydreams, associative thinking, an animated imagination, and deep relaxation. Some benefits may include stress and tension reduction, stimulation of the glandular system, clearing emotional blockages, increased vital life-force, improved circulation, strengthened immune system, an awakening of your intuition, and access to inner wisdom.
Listening to the gong can have an effect on brainwave frequencies. The first brainwave state to be reached is alpha, which is defined by frequencies between 8 and 12 Hz. Alpha brainwaves are associated with creativity and feelings of relaxation. In this state people experience daydreams, associative thinking and an animated imagination. This state is quickly followed by an influx of theta brainwaves which fall between 4 and 7 Hz. Normally, the theta brainwave state is associated with deep meditation, hypnosis, and REM sleep. This can help reduce stress and liberate emotional blockages. Scientific evidence suggests that certain forms of sound therapy prompt damaged human DNA strands to repair themselves. The sound of the gong can be described as otherworldly, rhythmic, cosmic, unfathomable, purifying, deep, magical, sweet, profound, celestial, and harmonic. Some people's experiences of the gong can be described as spiritual, emotional, physical, and/or out of body.

A short 10min gong bath can be added onto any service free of charge.
I am available for home group gatherings.
Guided Meditation - Many people feel that they can't meditate or that it's not for them because they can't stop their mind from thinking. This belief that one has to clear their mind of all thoughts is false and practically an impossible feat. In meditation you are training your mind to become more focused, more aware, and perhaps more in control of your thoughts rather than to train your mind to banish your thoughts altogether. I believe that another aspect of meditation is simply to tune inwards and to connect with oneself and their surroundings in the present moment. Oftentimes we are either thinking of things in the future or in the past. When your mind is in the future or the past you aren't fully in the present. I can help guide you through some basic meditation practices and encourage you to give it a try. Everything takes practice including meditation.
Thai Massage -- This modality consists of passive assisted stretches, muscular compressions, and work focused on freeing pathways of movement in the body in order to relieve tension and increase flexibility. Traditional Thai is performed on a soft mat on the floor and the client is fully clothed in loose comfortable attire suitable for the deep stretching that will be apart of the session. Thai massage can help quiet the mind and encourage relaxation, increase energy levels, improve body-mind connection, improve circulation and lymph flow, and improve range of motion.
