Shiatsu Massage

Facilitator Lisa Schwaber
60 minutes: $125

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of the ancient art of acupuncture, using finger and hand pressure instead of needles.

During a Shiatsu session, in which the client lies fully clothed and comfortable on a mat on the floor, energy blocks are addressed, thereby allowing the body’s flow of energy to become balanced. This is accomplished through a combination of measured pressure to the meridians (energy pathways), and passive stretches that increase flexibility. Many meditators who experience Shiatsu find it an extremely effective form of bodywork that leaves them in a very expanded state of awareness. Lisa is a professional Massage Therapist and brings many years’ expertise to this protocol.

Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine

Facilitator Lucy Larsen
60 minutes: $100

Acupuncture is a precise and time-honored treatment for pain, digestive disorders, women’s issues, stress and fatigue, to name but a few.

The tiny needles are safe and painless, and results are remarkable and often immediate. Any temporary sensation you may feel is the result of the movement of chi and a demonstration that the session is working. Acupuncture is highly effective in emotional and physical clearing and creating multi-dimensional balance.

Lucy Larsen, M.S., L.Ac., Dip. Ac. is licensed by the Virginia Board of Medicine to practice Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She is skilled in a number of modalities and will work with you to determine an individual treatment plan.

Reflexology

Facilitator Deanne Flickinger
45 minutes: $100

Reflexology is the art and science of working on the feet based on the zone theory. It is not a massage, though the feet are massaged throughout the session to help them relax.

Reflexology is the science based on the principles that there are zones / areas on the feet, hands and ears that correspond with all organs, glands and parts of the body. Reflexology can stimulate and awaken the nerve force energy of the entire body so that the body can heal itself. Each system of the body is enhanced. Reflexology can improve nerve and blood supply helping nature to normalize body functions. It was practiced as early as 2330 B.C. by the Egyptian culture. Results of the session may be felt immediately or 24 to 48 hours later.

Amethyst BioMat

10 minutes: $35
2-Pack: First session 15 minutes,
second session 30 minutes: $70

This is a full-body healing mat that includes a combination of three therapeutic applications to support body and mind to wellness and wellbeing, using Negative Ion generation, Far Infrared Light generation, and Amethyst crystals.

Negative ionization of the body alkalizes and purifies the blood, charges the immune system, and supplies antioxidants that neutralize free radicals. Far-Infrared Light heals with radiant heat allowing deep muscle and tissue therapy while soothing nerves, increasing circulation and detoxification, reducing pain and stress. Amethyst is a superconductor that increases stamina and endurance and supports transforming lower vibrations into a higher resonance. Drink plenty of water before and after sessions and wear natural fabrics.

“Lying on the Amethyst BioMat was a nurturing and rejuvenating experience. The warmth of the mat soothed my aching muscles and eased tension. I even slept better that night!” -M.A.

NEW WELLBEING SERVICE!

Picture of woman with a sunset imposed over her head

Holistic Balance, Diagnostic & Recommendations

Facilitators Jim Clarke, Mona Kaufmann & Caroline Avant
45 minute CoRe Inergetix Session + Recommendations: $150

INCLUDES:

A) One 45 minute CoRe Inergetix session with Jim Clark (analysis & treatment)

B) One printout report delivered later with recommendations based on the test results:  1) tailored affirmations from Mona Kaufmann; and 2) tailored energy-medicine practices from Caroline Avant. The report will also include recommendations for additional helpful integrative sessions during and following the retreat.

This new Wellbeing Service is based on individual test results from our CoRe Inergetix computer system which operates on the information level of our human experience. In a 45-minute session, it first performs the standard CoRe Inergetix analysis that takes a multi-dimensional approach to detecting physical, emotional and mental dimensional imbalances. For this service, that information is then filtered through the profile of chakra vortexes (which are meridian energy communication hubs) and gives an indication of interest and/or concern in any of the traditional seven chakras. It then selects, from its vast holistic database, specific informational frequencies for balancing purposes and delivers these into the client’s vital energy field. By the end of the session, the participant is relaxed and rejuvenated with a new level of integrative balance.

In addition, the CoRe results of the analysis are sent to two other facilitators, Mona Kaufmann and Caroline Avant for additional input. A report will be printed and delivered detailing further recommendations based on the test results: 1) suggested affirmations from Mona; and 2) suggested practices from Caroline from her Energy Medicine curriculum (including breathing, postures, etc.). The  facilitators may also recommend other integrative service sessions during this retreat, which can be scheduled as time and interest permits

Tapping Into Source

Facilitator Julie Cowley, TFT-ADV
45 minutes: $85
3 Session Package: $200

Thought Field Therapy (TFT), the original “Tapping” modality, is based on the combined principles of Ancient Chinese Acupuncture and Modern Psychology. The key to it lies in influencing the body’s bioenergy field by tapping with your fingers on specific points on your body located along energy meridians, while tuning into a “thought field.”

TFT can clear limiting blocks and data, no matter in which dimension they manifest—physical, emotional, mental, and/or or spiritual-subtle. Sessions can include healing past traumas, stress and anxiety relief, forgiveness, clearing limiting beliefs and self-sabotage, pain relief, integrating energetic peaks, and more.

The 3-session package offers the opportunity to do some significant “house cleaning.”

“I have felt what I thought were very difficult anger and resentment issues, melt away very quickly and with surprising ease. I now see so many more opportunities coming up, for using my heart in a positive way.” – J.R., Australia

Energetic Balance Enhancement

Facilitator Jim Clarke
45 minutes: $75
3 session package: $150

This technology is harmonizing in the retreat setting. It operates on the energy frequency information (data) level of our human experience.

To detect physical, emotional, and mental, dimensional imbalances an energetic analysis is completed. Afterward, the Inergetix CoRe system selects from its vast holistic database; specific informational frequencies for balancing purposes. Harmonizing and balancing frequencies then flow into the vital energy field. Accelerating and smoothing the clearing and integrative processes accompanying transformational work and inner growth at a fundamental energetic level EBE is highly regarded. The benefits may include releasing past limitations that accompany growth and consciousness expansion.

We recommend guests have a “baseline” session to assist in clearing some of the energetic imbalances arriving with you. Multiple sessions are popular in the retreat setting.

Sonic Meridian Alignment

30 minutes: $50
3 session package: $125

This simple yet powerful technology (Acoustic Meridian Intelligence) uses sound waves as a healing modality. A session can address stress, inflammatory pain, vitality, anti-aging, the nervous, respiratory, hormonal, digestive systems, and circulation.

For a single session, we offer the Stress Channel. It is the most important channel and will entrain healing energies into body cells, tissues and organs. The protocol session involves sitting comfortably with your bare feet on gel pads. Multiple sessions allow the introduction of many healing frequencies into the human body.

The technology is based on the work of Dr. Peter Guy Manner of England. He devoted his life to the study of sound as a healing modality. His research identified 750 sonic frequencies associated with the health of body cells, tissues, and organs. Ninety percent of the 750 frequencies are in ten complementary channels which can be transmitted into the body. Our device applies patterns of these sonic frequencies into the meridian system to restore harmony. These sonic frequencies are induced into the meridian systems of the body through gel footpads.
