Spiritual Counseling (Online Session)
with Rev. Shankar Fern, Rev. Lucy Lila Nelson, Rev. Laksmi Scalise, IYM, and Rev. Sam Rudra Swartz, IYM
The teachings of Yoga provide a comprehensive understanding of psychology, as well as a path beyond the psychological level of being. With many years of dedicated practice of yoga, especially meditation, Integral Yoga’s counselors will listen deeply and help you explore the way to make clear, balanced, and skillful decisions in your life. The essence of the yogic philosophy is that you cannot blame others for your unhappiness. Blaming yourself is also not productive, but it is possible to learn to take responsibility for how your mind is reacting to the world around you.
Distant Reiki (Phone and Remote Session)
with Rev. Laksmi Scalise IYM, Brahmi Bergamini
The desired session goals are assessed by phone and a time is set for the remote session which allows the Reiki energy to be received in a quiet, comfortable space. At the appointed time the Reiki energy is sent to those areas that require healing. The session ends with a phone discussion of the experience. As with in-person Reiki, Distant Reiki relieves anxiety, stress, depression, pain, promotes deep relaxation, and an overall feeling of renewed energy and well-being.

Flower Essences Therapy (Online or Phone Session)
with Brahmi Bergamini
Not only do flowers bring us joy with their beautiful colors and intoxicating scents they also possess healing powers that have been used since ancient times to restore mind/body balance.

You will be guided to identify core emotional issues to determine which flower remedy is best suited to your particular needs. Based on the consultation, a safe, non-toxic personalized blend of flower essences will be prepared. Your unique blend of flower essences will help to eliminate draining negative emotions and restore a greater feeling of well-being and balance to your life.
Holistic Wellness Consultation (Phone Session)
With Shakti Amitay
During the initial discussion you will be encouraged to share with Shakti those current emotional and physical challenges that you need assistance with and may be preventing you from feeling your best. From this assessment Shakti will provide you with various self-healing tools and modalities based on yogic wellness principles that you can easily implement and incorporate into your daily life. Focusing on self-rejuvenation practices will help you nurture your body, mind, and spirit, cultivating a more positive attitude and an overall feeling of well-being. These sessions work in conjunction with any current medical regimens prescribed by physicians and other health practitioners.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective healing technique based on thousands of years of the ancient wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine. Fine needles are placed at acupuncture sites along pathways known as meridians, through which the Qi, or vital energy of the body, flows. When the Qi flow is disrupted because of injury or illness, imbalances occur, leading to pain or dysfunction of the body’s vital organ systems. Acupuncture treatment is known for its ability to relieve pain, promote healing, and restore the body to a state of optimal health and balance.
Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of back, shoulder, and neck pain, sports-related injuries, sciatica, issues related to women’s and men’s health, stress-related symptoms such as insomnia and anxiety, fatigue and burnout, digestive disorders, sinus pain, and allergy-related conditions. It can also assist with weight management and smoking cessation.
Facial Rejuvenation using Acupuncture tightens pores, improves muscle tone and dermal contraction, while enhancing and increasing the elasticity of the skin. Acupuncture can reduce signs of aging by strengthening and stimulating the circulation of Qi within the meridian pathways, especially those of the face. You will look and feel more energetic, calm, vibrant and healthy. Acupuncture has an accumulative effect. It is recommended to have a series of treatments to receive maximum results.
Aura-Soma Color Therapy
Aura-Soma Color Therapy is a system that uses colors to bring awareness to your issues and draws on those insights to harmonize your body’s subtle energies. The basic consultation employs a spectrum of differently colored Equilibrium bottles filled with high-quality organic ingredients. You are instinctively drawn to the colors that resonate with you. On the basis of your choices, their meanings will be explored and discussed in the context of your life’s journey. The Beamer Light Pen session goes further by combining your chosen colors with light and working at various energy points in your body to clean, align, and balance it. Among the benefits are deep relaxation, stress relief, and more-balanced chakras.
Chakras are energy centers connecting the energetic (pranic) body with the gross (physical) body. Chakra balancing works on the tangible and subtle energy levels of the body. It aligns the energy pathways and removes blockages caused by emotions, thoughts, and life situations.
Cranial Therapy is a gentle hands-on technique that works with the craniosacral rhythm and the cranial/facial structure. The work is performed starting from superficial and progressing to deep structures, increasing joint alignment and mobility and releasing compression throughout the cranium and face. This technique can have a profound affect on headaches, migraines, head trauma, concussions, TMJ dysfunction, stress release, and mores.
Myofascial Release is a gentle hands-on technique that releases restrictions in the fascial system of the body. Fascia is described as a “tough connective tissue” that provides form to the body enveloping every muscle, bone, nerve, organ, and vessel. It is continuous without beginning or end. There are many causes for fascial tightness and dysfunction. This technique results in freeing the fascia and allowing the tissues of the body to glide appropriately while increasing blood flow, lymphatic flow and joint and visceral mobility. This technique can decrease pain, increase range of motion and help with a multitude of diagnoses.
Prenatal Swedish Massage
Prenatal Swedish massage utilizes Swedish massage strokes—compression, gliding, kneading, and friction—to target the specific aches and pains that go along with pregnancy, such as low back pain, sciatica, round ligament pain, and feet and leg pain or swelling. As with any massage, the therapist will tailor the session to meet the needs of a given client. Prenatal massage is generally done in a side-lying position. If you have a high-risk pregnancy or a pregnancy-related condition such as pregnancy-induced hypertension, be sure to let the therapist know before your session.
Prenatal Thai Bodywork
Prenatal Thai Bodywork is a gentle system of stretching and relaxation suitable for the particular condition of mothers-to-be. It is appropriate in the second and third trimesters of pregnancies without complications. Thai Yoga can help to alleviate some of the tension in the back and strain on the legs associated with pregnancy and can increase flexibility in the hips and groin. Most important, Thai Bodywork cultivates a mentally and physically peaceful state in the mother, helping her to reduce stress and build confidence in preparation for the experience of birth.
Why not thank your feet and hands for all they do for you? Reflexology stimulates various points that correspond to the organs and structures of the body, thereby promoting relaxation and internal healing, as well as improving circulation and balance. Gentle pressure is used to wonderful effect while you sit back, rest, and relax.
Reiki is a gentle, balancing, transformational spiritual practice. It is generally experienced as deeply relaxing and refreshing. Reiki’s universal nature makes it suitable for all states of being. Reiki is practiced either through light touch or with the hands slightly off the body. Reiki has no known medical contraindications, and recipients are fully clothed and aware at all times.
Individual restorative healing sessions will have you lie back on cushions and blankets to make space in the body and relax. Through gentle massage, energy work, sound, and aroma (based on your preferences), you are guided to a deeper state of receptivity to access the body’s own potential for rejuvenation.
Shiatsu is an ancient, non-invasive healing method practiced for centuries to prevent illness. Based on traditional Chinese acupuncture meridians, Shiatsu’s acupressure is also called pressure point meridian therapy. Shiatsu helps keep the body in peak condition, relieves tension, and promotes vitality. It prompts the body’s internal system to flow, helping the body to heal itself. It can work in conjunction with most health regimens prescribed by doctors and other health care professionals. As an option, you can have moxa applied; that consists of heated sticks used at pressure points to treat allergies and colds.
Sound healing combines Reiki hands-on healing with a variety of powerful sound healing instruments and procedures which will be administered in a personalized session just for you. Lying on a massage table, you will receive sounds that are designed to dislodge holding patterns and move stagnant energy.
Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage
A deeply relaxing combination of Western massage techniques designed to ease tension, relieve pain, and improve mobility and muscle tone. The practitioner applies gentle but firm gliding and kneading strokes to loosen muscles and boost circulation and can include targeted techniques to unlock deeper muscles and release knots.
Often described as assisted Hatha Yoga, this well-respected and proven healing art born in the temples of Thailand has roots in both the ancient healing traditions of Ayurveda and Thai Buddhism. Using his or her hands, feet, arms, and legs, the practitioner gently guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures, creating a harmonious and therapeutic “dance,” which leads to greater physical awareness, grace, and spiritual energy.
