How is it done?
Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient and sacred system of healing which is a synthesis of yoga, Ayurveda and meditation. The massage takes place in comfortable yoga wear on a mat  which allows for the practitioner to use their palms, feet, forearm, thumbs, and elbows to apply pressure along the body’s energy lines and pressure points.

Pressing and stretching are where Thai bodywork excels. The deep presses squash the muscles, stretching the myofascia sideways. These changes increase blood and energy flow and make all the tissues amenable to the effects of stretching that are listed below.

Additional  effects…
It enhances the flow of healing energy (prana)  through the body which generates a deep state of relaxation and rejuvenation.  There is relief from muscular tension, improvement of one’s circulation and immune system, and  a  balancing effect at the physical and energetic level .

Rate: $105 plus HST for a 90 minute massage

REIKI WITH WENDY (60 minutes)

This season Wendy is delighted to offer 1 hour Reiki sessions on a donation basis.  Reiki is a gentle, hands-on healing technique that releases stress and tension hence promoting deep relaxation.

Reiki was discovered in the early 20th century by Japanese Master Mikao Usui. He developed ways to access, use and share this healing energy to facilitate a balancing and healing effect on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of our being.

In Japanese, “Rei” (“ray”) means “universal” and “Ki” (“key”) refers to the vital life force energy which is within and connects all living things.  Wendy’s love of this healing energy technique stems from its ability to anchor one in stillness.

The more one lets go both physically and mentally the greater the results of the treatment. Reiki has been described as a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.

It’s a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that anyone can receive. As an energetic modality, it has the capacity to provide relief from a wide range of issues including insomnia, fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, anxiety, depression, grief, and emotional trauma. It works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relive negative side effects and promote recovery.

Suggested donation of $50 to the charity of your choice;

India – Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home OR Karma Animal Trust

Wolfe Island and Kingston –  Martha’s Table  OR   Wolfe Island Friends of Ferals
