Wealth & Finance International 12 yoga-like positions. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that promotes relief of muscular tension and stress, im- provement of circulation, boosting of the immune system and increase in energy and flexibility. Its overall purpose, according to tradition, is to promote relaxation and healing of a person physically, emotionally and spiritually. REFLEXOLOGY: Reflexology involves the manipulation of nerve endings (reflexes) found in the palms of the hands and plantar surfaces of the feet that correlate with every organ and body part found within the 10 zones of the body. When performed by the personal touch of a Reflexologist, the manipu- lation channels the energy and blood flow through each zone in order to promote balance, proper blood circulation and total relaxation through- out the body. In addition to reflexology for relaxation and rejuvenation, the technique has been known to promote relief of allergy symptoms and maintenance of post-diet weight. REIKI: A technique that promotes stress reduction, relaxation and healing that has been practiced for thousands of years. It is a special kind of energy that can only be channelled by someone who has been “attuned” to it. Reiki technicians may either gently touch or their hands may hover over the receiver. As energies begin flowing automatically, the receiver has been known to enter a very calm, relaxed state and feel refreshed after the session. The unique quality of Reiki is that there may be a different experience with each session. EAR CANDLING: Ear Candling is an ancient method for removing wax and candida from the ear canal. It is a practice in which a hollow, all natural candle is stuck through a paper plate or aluminium pie tin and is inserted into the outer ear canal. As the end of the candle is lit, the combination of heat and suction draws waxes and toxins from the ear through a process called convection. Ear Candling is a therapeutic relaxation technique (releases blocked energy) since many pressure points and nerve end- ings of the ear correlate to other parts of the body. It has been known to have an ancillary benefit of promoting sinus wellness and ear ache relief by cleansing the ear canal. ACUPUNCTURE: Acupuncture is an ancient medicine dating back thousands of years. Acupuncture works by inserting thin needles superficially into the skin to stimulate small wells of energy. These wells are acupuncture points and the energy itself is called Qi (pronounced ‘chee’). Qi flows through acupuncture points along channels or meridians. Qi is sometimes translated as life-force energy. It animates, informs and enlivens all living things. Natural cycles are disrupted if Qi is not flowing smoothly or abundantly and we become symptomatic disconnected or diseased. AdjustingQi with acupuncture encourages the body, mind and spirit back into balance and health. Acupuncture addresses each person individually and holistically and is as much a road to self-discovery as well as to healing. GUIDED MEDITATION: Meditation is the practice of sustained focus upon a sound, object, visual image, the breath, or movement to help individuals increase awareness of the present moment by promoting stress reduction and relaxation. During your first session, an assessment of your meditation experience and personal goals will be performed in order to determine the best and most appropriate meditation techniques for you. You will then be guided through a session that is tailored to meet your needs and goals. The purpose of your guided meditation may be to focus on a specific issue or goal or it may simply be instructive. Meditation has been known to clear up mental blockages that may be impeding personal growth and promote self-healing. COMPREHENSIVE HOLISTIC ASSESSMENT: Addressing a holistic (mind/body/spirit) approach to wellness chal- lenges, the practitioner will consult with you to assess your current wellness status and lifestyle to determine the most appropriate support for improving your overall well-being. The initial 30 minute session will entail an overview of the practitioner’s services and discussion of your wellness issues. Based on this information, a more comprehensive as- sessment will follow that incorporates your specific goals and needs and the development of an individualised holistic plan. Your holistic plan may involve homeopathy, herbal and nutritional supplements, yoga and meditation or other methods to promote healing and balance.
