Clarity breathwork is a profound tool for transformation and healing on all levels of body, mind, and spirit. It uses the ancient practice of circular connected breathing that has been used in cultures around the world for healing and attaining higher states of consciousness for thousands of years.
Breathwork is one of the purest and most effective techniques to release stress and tension, heal and resolve trauma, and awaken you to your true “being”. Clarity breathwork is a safe and effective method which supports you to access your own internal healing energy and greater knowing. From this place, you can experience a powerful shift in yourself and your life experience. Through clarity breathwork, many people have experienced:
Foot reflexology is a holistic energy-based modality that improves nerve, blood, and lymphatic supply to the entire body by pressing reflex areas on the feet. These areas and acupressure points correspond to all vital organs of the body. It is beneficial for stress relief, improved circulation, and removal blockages of life force or chi (qi) to enable healing flow.
Reiki is Japanese for vital life force energy. As a healing modality, it is a transmission of spiritually guided subtle energy that balances body, mind, and spirit through clearing energetic blockages. The effect of Reiki is deeply relaxing and soothing, allowing the recipient to reconnect with one’s essential nature. It promotes healing and pain relief on many levels, especially the issues of stress, anxiety, addictions, weight loss, depression, fear, and grief. The treatment is received fully clothed through gentle hands-on placements of the practitioner. The energy flows wherever required and is usually felt as a warm sensation or tingling in the body, leaving a wonderful glowing radiance within.
Watsu is a gentle form of body therapy performed in warm water (around 35 degrees Celsius.) It combines elements of massage, joint mobilization, shiatsu, muscle stretching, and dance. The receiver is continuously supported while being floated, cradled, rocked, and stretched. The deeply relaxing effects of warm water and nurturing support will combine with Watsu’s movements, stretches, massage, and point work to create a bodywork with a range of therapeutic benefits and potential healing on many levels.
Moments of stillness alternate with rhythmical flowing movements which free the body in ways impossible on land. The warm water relaxes the muscles and supports the spine. With this support and without the weight of the body, the spine, joints, and muscles can be manipulated and freed in a way unique to water work. The effects include a very gentle yet deep stretching and a release of muscular and joint restrictions, along with a state of deep relaxation which encourages the release of stress and tensions.
