Access Bars® as described by Access Consciousness® ” Feel like hitting the delete button on your computer’s cluttered hard drive – only this time, you’re creating space in your brain. Things like negative thought patterns, or that endless mental chatter keeping you awake at night, can be released and make space for the calm you’ve been seeking”.
Access Bars® is a gentle hands-on modality that was introduced by Gary Douglas in the early 1990s. The Bars are 32 unique points on the head that correlate to different areas and aspects of life. During an Access Bars session, a practitioner gently touches these points to release the electromagnetic charge of all thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions, and beliefs that may have limited you in the concerned life areas. Sessions last for 1-2 hours
Reflexology is a treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet, hands, and ears that are connected through the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. When our body experiences a illness, stress or injury it goes into a state of dis-ease or imbalance. When applying pressures to reflex areas, it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels and helps to restore the body to homeostasis.
Sessions include: A warm cleansing towels to prepare the skin, followed by Reflexology to the feet or hands & feet for 60-90 minutes. In addition, you can choose the option of Reflexology with Reiki for 90 minute session. doTERRA essential oils will be used for added benefit with your approval; in addition you’ll lay comfortably on a Bio Mat that provides heat therapy to the entire body.
Some of the benefits of Reflexology include:
Speeds up Healing
While reflexology should not be a substitute for conventional medical treatments, it can be part of a complementary holistic approach to keeping you healthy.
Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Studies also show that reflexology may have benefits in palliative care for people with cancer.
Pre-operatively, reflexology boosts the immune by improving the lymphatic system’s functioning, the circulation and the necessary time in “relaxation” where the body can be at optimal performance. Post-operatively reflexology helps keep blood flowing, aides the body in releasing toxins, it can assist in relaxation to aid in healing and has a great effect on lowering pain levels. Facing surgery can be intimidating life event and reflexology can help.
Reflexology can be combined with Reiki for a 90 minute session. Reiki gives the person a unique physical healing method by working with the body systems on the feet, in addition to working with the energetic response that gets recorded in our bodies. Together it can bring relief and release during recovery and for a deeper healing.
Therapeutic Drum Therapy
While laying comfortably on a massage table, you will be guided to open your senses and allow your body to listen to the beautiful sound created by the Tambour Unity Drum. This drum is mounted on a stand that keeps you safe while you lay under the drum. This allows the body to feel the full vibrational affect and helps you release blocks held in the body. Some like to call it a vibrational massage. Sessions are combined with Reiki and last for 1 hour. After the session is over, you have plenty of time to ensure you are grounded and then you are given the opportunity to drum yourself.
Soul Remembrance Session
Soul Retrieval Session
This is a shamanic experience where together I journey with guides to help you remember what your life purpose is for this lifetime. A Soul Remembrance can help you clarify why you may be drawn to a certain situation or occupation. This will help you be aware of the important patterns or obstacles that present themselves in your life and why they be repeating. After the journey is over, I will share with you the healing story to assist you in making decisions and moving forward in life's choices.

Soul Retrieval is a shamanic technique in which I journey with you to bring back parts of yourself that has left to be safe during some traumatic event in your life. Traumatic events may be very obvious or it could be an event that didn't seem traumatic at the time, but still affected you energetically and part of you left to avoid damage. Examples of soul loss is illness, accidents, loss of any kind, any event where a person might be changed or loss their innocense. For example, after the event, you felt you couldn't trust again or was terrified to do a particular task. Sometimes people just feel lost and feel there is something missing.
During the soul retrieval, you simply relax on the massage table and I journey for you to ask that I be connected to to what needs returned to you at this moment in your life. I bring back the fragments/aspects that you need back. After a soul retrieval, your body must integrate or process the returning fragments/aspects of you that were once lost and to help facilitate this process; I will give you a Reiki session. Once the session is completed, I will share with you the healing story.
After the session, there will be a healing session to help you begin the integration of the pieces. This can take up to 2 hours.

Tuning Fork Therapy
"The development of Tuning Fork Therapy® is based on the belief that as sound waves pass through the body, they elicit responses within the body's systems. These systems react to the sound waves and vibrations created and use them to restore to a healthier and more harmonic base."
Why should we consider Tuning Forks. Tuning Forks is a tool that can help release issues that are being held in the body. The vibration and frequency created from the Tuning Forks can help with inducing relaxation, but also has a way of moving through areas of blockage.
The physical body is where we experience localized pain and discomfort. Using tuning forks on the body creates a unique frequency that can help create a physiological reaction, while the sound itself helps to influence our auditory system, enabling us to modify our relationship to the pain.
Our "subtle body" is our energetic body. This body is where our life force energy exists, some refer to this energy as Qi, Chi or Prana. In Chinese medicine, meridian points are used to pinpoint areas that have restricted energetic flow to our physical and subtle bodies. In addition, we have Fields and Auras outside of the body and Chakras that move through the body. The subtle body starts recording memories the moment we are conceived and can hold imbalances and traumas that can eventually manifest in our physical body, and that why it's important to look at healing and balance not only from a physical perspective, but as a complete holistic experience. By applying tuning forks to various areas above the body or lightly touching specific points on the body the vibration can increase the frequency thus releasing energetic blockages in our physical bodies, the subtle bodies, or both. A Tuning Fork session lasts one hour and can be combined with other healing modalities. In addition, it can be a technique used on animals.
Some of the benefits of Tuning Forks:
Power Animal Retrieval
This shamanic technique will connect you to an animal guide, known as a messenger or spirit guide. A power animal is characterized as a teacher or messenger that comes in the form of an animal. It is believed that you do not choose the guide, but rather, it chooses you. The animal is there to provide “medicine” to the recipient in the form of guidance, lessons, protection, power, and wisdom.
Shamans worldwide have relied on the guidance, wisdom of spirit animals for thousands of years.
Power animals come in and out of our lives to give us guidance and teach us aspects of our lives. While I perform this shamanic technique I will ask a power animal to come forward. The one that comes forward is there to help you on your path. Perhaps for a specific occasssion, a particular phase in your life, or for a task that needs completed. The animal that comes forward will be unique to you and what you need.
You can have one or several spirit animals throughout your lifetime. They can come in and out of our lives to give us guidance, teach us about ourselves, and help us achieve our goals. The power animal will act as a companion that you can learn to journey and meditate with and who you can ask to bring guidance or simply to walk with you on your path.
Learning to Journey with your animal is another appointment.
Session can last 1-1.5 hours
