Shiatsu is a Japanese bodywork therapy that incorporates the principles of acupuncture. Shiatsu is performed through light clothing without oils or lotions. Shiatsu Bodywork can be a form of therapeutic massage.
Heidi makes an assessment with the clients using signs and symptom, muscle testing, and pulse and tongue readings.
Shiatsu uses massage and stimulation along the meridian pathways and areas of the body that are influenced by the meridians, or are in need of tonifying, moving or dispersing energy. Shiatsu is a whole body massage.
This energy that flows through the pathways is called Qi (Chee). Qi is our vital life force of energy. It is like rivers of energy that flows through our body. These energy pathways are named after organs and have influence on the function of the organ they are named after. They are also influenced by certain times of the day, seasons of the year, foods, emotions and many other things., This stimulation can be very gentle to tonify and move the energy, called Qi (Chee,) or it can be more vigorous and deeper to disperse stagnant Qi.
The concept is – If the energy in the meridians is healthy and free flowing, the body can heal much easier – physically, emotionally and mentally.
When a client is struggling with energy after chronic or serious illness, tonification is appropriate. If a client has inflammation or pain and stiffness, dispersing techniques may be more appropriate.
Some areas may need dispersing while other areas need tonifying.
Shiatsu usually includes working on the whole body as the meridians flow through the arms and legs and into or out of the chest and head. The area of concern can be addressed through different areas of the body. Such as, tension in the neck and shoulders can be relieved by working on certain parts of the legs and feet as well as the neck and shoulders.
Each session may be different according to the client’s needs. Shiatsu Bodywork helps to improve the immune system, circulation, healing and well-being. Shiatsu also helps relieve physical and emotional stress and tension.
Since all the meridians are connected through a gently flow throughout the body, releasing these blockages helps to improve health and vitality for the body as a whole.
Shiatsu Bodywork Therapy is performed through light, movable clothing without the use of oils.
Shiatsu can be helpful for most all muscular skeletal issues, headaches, pre-menstrual and menopausal issues, tension and stress issues, fibromyalgia, digestive issues, fatigue and sleep imbalances.
Heidi also uses other Asian healing techniques with her bodywork session including: Korean Hand Therapy, Gua Sha, Reflexology and Che Nei Tsang (Asian abdominal massage for the vital organs)
CranioSacral Therapy was developed by Dr. John Upledger, who is an osteopathic physician and researcher.
The CranioSacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth down to the sacrum – tailbone.
This system influences the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord. An imbalance or restriction could cause any number of sensory, motor or neurological disabilities including: chronic pain, eye difficulties, scoliosis, motor-coordination impairments, learning disabilities and other health challenges.
CranioSacral Therapy is performed on a person fully clothed without lotions or oils.
Heidi uses very light touch to release restrictions in the CranioSacral system, relieving pressure that may have accumulated on the brain and spinal cord.
The goal is to establish a free flow of the cerebral spinal fluid.
This technique is useful for all structural issues including headache and back pain. It is also very relaxing, provides stress relief and takes one out of the “fight or flight” mode.
Lymphatic Drainage Technique was developed by Dr. Bruno Chikly who is an osteopathic and medical doctor.
Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a method of stimulating your lymph and body fluids. It is very gentle hands-on procedure that will help you eliminate fluid retention, cleanse your body and eliminate toxins and trapped proteins in your tissues. It will stimulate your immune system, help you to relax, and release stress and emotional trauma. It has many other effects on your body, as well. Lymphatic Drainage has been known to help with chronic inflammatory processes such as: chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune, bronchitis, sinusitis, laryngitis, arthritis, acne, eczema, etc. Stimulation of the lymphatic tissue tends to increase parasympathetic tone and diminish sympathetic tone – the “fight or flight” response. This can be helpful in dealing with stress, depression and sleep disorders. LDT alleviates tissue-fluid stagnation and inhibits receptors that trigger pain. It can be effective in dealing with some kinds of chronic pain. LDT can also help reduce muscle spasm including those associated with constipation. LDT can be helpful pre and post-surgery to help speed healing and reduce swelling and inflammation. LDT can also be helpful with some other conditions such as tinnitus, allergies, fibromyalgia syndrome, pre-menstrual bloating, pain, irritability and sports traumas. LDT is great for the skin and can help improve skin tone, reduce wrinkles and relax facial muscles.
Ionic Cleanse Detox Footbath
Ionic cleansing can help your body to eliminate toxins, through the bottom of your feet.
Your feet have specific areas that relate to all areas and organs of your body. The bottom of the foot has thousands of pores and sweat glands.
The ionic cleanse involves placing your feet into a container filled with warm salt water. An energizing array creates a flow of electrons, sending signals up through the lymph glands to stimulate a detoxification process. The negative ions produced help the body to become more alkaline. Neutralized particles and waste are pulled out of your body through osmosis.
Your body is daily exposed to toxins!
The human body is an electric energetic unit! When cells are fully charged they have more oxygen and the body can more easily heal itself.
Ionic Cleansing works great with Bodywork or Lymphatic Drainage.
Hands on Energy Work
Heidi uses a variety of other energy healing techniques that are incorporated into her healing sessions including: Clearing energy, Chakra and Meridian clearing and balancing, Grounding, Energy body healing and balancing and muscle testing.
Muscle testing can help determine what is the best treatment for the client that day and give more information about the issue and how to heal it. Muscle testing can also help determine if there are specific foods that may not be compatible for the client and preventing them from healing and issue.
Meridians are the energetic pathways that flow through the arms and legs and flow into or out of the head and chest. These are the same energetic pathways used in Shiatsu Bodywork and provide a great deal of information for the body. They are connected to organ and functions of the body. These meridian pathways can become blocked, excessive or deficient.
The Chakras are spinning wheels of energy through the center of our body, connecting the central nervous system to the energy outside the body. The 7 main chakras are Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Forehead (3rd eye) and Crown.
These areas of energy start at the bottom of the torso (tailbone area) with the Root and go to the top of the head with Crown.
They are the colors of the rainbow: Red, orange, Yellow, green, blue, purple, and light violet or white.
These areas of energy connect us to the energy of the universe. We give and receive information through the chakras.
They are associated with organs and systems in the areas that they occupy and also emotions and beliefs about self and the universe.
Heidi uses different techniques to balance the energy of the Chakras and Meridians which can bring the body to balance and a better state of healing.
Chakra and meridian work is relaxing, healing and promotes a state of well-being.
Quantum Techniques Energy Healing was developed by Dr. Stephen and Beth Daniel, psychologists.
Quantum Technique works with the body’s energy field and uses some of the techniques from EFT and other energy healing along with muscle testing to help find and clear disruptive energy fields.
The client presents their symptoms – which establishes the field of energy you are working with.
Heidi uses techniques to make sure the body is ready and willing to be tested.
Then we look for what is blocking the body from healing this issue. It may be foods, bacteria, virus, fungus, other toxins or emotions or traumas.
Then Heidi uses other techniques to energetically clear these from the energy field.
Next Heidi will but the body back on line for healing and give the client a healing code.
A healing code is a specific series of acupuncture and chakra points that the client uses to keep the healing treatment going.
This is a very in depth healing technique. It can help bring healing to most any issue whether it is physical or non-physical.
Many times when other things have not been successful Quantum Techniques can bring healing.
Quantum Techniques Healing is an in-office only session.
Intuitive Reading with Energy Healing
In this session we talk about the issue or issues the client wants to work on. This may be physical body, home, environment, work, relationship, finance, etc.
We decide on a healing intention.
Then I view the issue(s) in the client’s projected energy body and aura field. The information comes in with senses, words, pictures, messages, etc.
Healing comes via: words, energy vibrations, colors, frequencies and tones that can clear lower vibrations and replace them with higher healing vibrations. The energy healing helps balance the energy body which also balances the physical body. This healing can be very helpful for children and pets. We work through the parent or pet Mom or Dad. The healing session can also help bring healing for ones life, business and relationships.
This healing can be performed in office or via phone.
During an Angel Reading, we start with a prayer for the client and invite the Divine Healing Angels that are the best for the client and the situation to join our session. The session is guided by the angels, bringing clarity and healing for the client. These sessions are intuitive readings guided by the angels – and the healing is energy, messages and vibration balancing provided with the guidance of the angels.
This healing can be performed in office or via phone.
