TRANSCEND YOGA & HEALING MISSION
The Transcend Healing treatments reflect loving devotion, nurturing care, deep healing, & intention for transformation. The treatments are based on ancient & modern natural healing philosophies.
Transcend Yoga & Transcend Healing form a system which helps one live a full, healthy life along the great path to the self-awareness. My ultimate goal is to teach a way of life that harmonizes a person internally, and with other humans, plants, and animals!
TRANSCEND HEALING TREATMENTS/WORKSHOPS
I offer a variety of natural healing treatments to help balance out the ailments of body, & aid in the surrender & relaxation of the mind. As a healer I see all ailments as connected to the whole person. As such I encourage open communication about physical/mental/spiritual wounds. My treatments reflect my gentle, loving, empathetic, & sensitive nature. They also reflect my commitment to break through perceived barriers & go deep into the heart of the clients needs. I encourage my clients to use centered deep breathing as I therapeutically attend to blockages, wounds, & sensitive areas! I leave every client with simple & practical take home ideas to continue to heal & evolve.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE TREATMENTS
I use my thumbs, knuckles, hands, knees, & feet to perform muscle compression, joint mobilization, & acupressure. This works out the congestion, breaks apart deep knots, & stimulates blood flow. I draw upon 14 years of yogic practice & 8 years of teaching while manipulating the body into deep Thai/Yoga stretching position’s.
THAI MASSAGE & PARTNER YOGA WORKSHOPS – 3hour
This is an introductory workshop focusing on basic foundation skills. We begin with some simple partner stretching to warm up & open the connection to giving & receiving. Students can expect to learn fun & simple massage techniques that they can use to nurture friends & family.
LEVEL 1 THAI MASSAGE TRAINING - 30hour.
This course is taught over 4-5 days, & teaches the foundation of Thai Massage. Students will be trained to offer a dynamic 1hour massage that includes supine, side lying, prone, & seated positions. Students practice a variety of techniques using thumbs, knuckles, hands, knees, & feet to perform muscle compression, joint mobilization, & acupressure. They also learn to manipulate the client’s body through a series of therapeutic Thai/Yoga stretches. Students are introduced to the theory behind Thai bodywork, including Sen-Sib energy pathways, & wind gates. We explore a basic understanding of western anatomy & physiology, trigger points, body mechanics, & contraindications as they pertain to Thai Massage.
I studied at the Thai Massage School of Chiangmai, a government accredited school in Thailand. The level 1 course that I teach is based on TMC curriculum & I am affiliated with the school. Upon completion of this course the student receives a TMC affiliated 30hour Level 1 Thai Massage diploma.
This course is suitable for those who wish to learn simple massage techniques to share with friends & family. It is also great for yoga instructors looking to offer deeper, more therapeutic adjustments in class, as well as practitioners seeking an alternative modality
BIODYNAMIC CRANIO-SACRAL HEALING
Bio Dynamic Cranio-Sacral Healing or Gentle Touch is a method in which hands are gently placed on the skull, spine, diaphragms, bones, fascia, sacrum, & feet to listen to the rhythm of the cerebral spinal fluid flowing like a tide throughout the body. With the sensing of this rhythm, blockages in the physical & psychological bodies can be evaluated. During a cranio session I open the door of communication between my touch & the client’s body. With gentle hands I lovingly invite the CSF fluid to flow optimally inviting misaligned bones to go back into place, blockages to be released, emotions to surface, immune system to function, & general wellness & homeostasis to be achieved.
ALL NATURAL FACE/BODY TREATMENTS
During my all natural face/body treatments I use a minimal amount of organic natural products mixed with fresh ingredients to nurture & heal inside out.
For facials I cleanse, exfoliate, mask, tone, serum, moisturize & massage the skin to a glowing state of health! Depending on the type of skin I will hand choose fresh ingredients to use, such as: cucumber, mango, buttermilk, avocado, lemon, yogurt, honey, oats, mangosteen, neem, tea tree, lavender, coconut, mud, rose, nuts, rice & many other delicious & fragrant concoctions.
For hand & foot treatments I cleanse, exfoliate, mask, & moisturize. I finish the treatment with thai reflexology & other therapeutic massage techniques using organic African she butter.
I am Certified in Reiki Level 1/2 & provide sessions. Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that taps into spiritually guided life force energy. During a Reiki session, I gently place my hands on the client’s body, transferring life force energy. Reiki heals, reduces stress, & encourages deep relaxation. For some clients I also use Sound Healing.
Sound Healing is based on the scientific principle that all matter vibrates to a precise frequency, & by using resonant vibration, balance of matter can be restored. In such cases I would use vibrational instruments such as a didgerie doo, singing bowls, a flute, or even my own voice toning to create a soothing frequency to move energy that is stuck, & promote deep relaxation & healing. During a Reiki/Sound Healing session we can work through past trauma, as well as generate positive energy & motivation for future projects.
