Energy work can be profoundly relaxing and deeply healing. Focused on the energy body (Chi, Prana, Life Force) and its corresponding points within the body (chakras and meridian points), these treatments can release blocked energy and improve clarity, calm the nervous system, strengthen the immune system, and help achieve overall vitality.
- Polarity: Polarity therapy is a living science of balancing the energy fields of the body and a healing art of revitalizing the life force. A polarity session can feel deeply relaxing and peaceful. Using techniques which feel similar to Reiki, acupressure, and light massage, the therapist will use a combination of full hand and fingertip contact. Although the work is done on the physical body (while the client lies fully clothed on a massage table) polarity works on every level. There is no separation between the body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
The purpose of Polarity therapy is to bring the soul—the life force—more fully into the physical body. When the life force is strengthened within the body, its structure can align, its meridians (energy pathways) unblock, and the immune system activates. When our physical structure, energy body, thought processes, and chakras (the body’s energy centers) are in balance, we experience wholeness, clarity, and improved health and energy. As a result, we are inspired and strengthened to make choices and lifestyle changes that continue to support our life force; we become authentic, radiant, creative beings present in the moment and able to act and contribute fully to our lives and communities.

- Reiki: A Japanese energy technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It can be hands-on or not and is done fully clothed. It’s based on the idea that life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more vibrantly healthy.
It’s a simple and safe method of energetic healing that has been effective in helping many illnesses and maladies and it always creates a beneficial effect. It works well in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
