Mindful Massage – During your massage that integrates a variety of physical techniques to overcome and treat pain discomfort or dysfunction you will also experience an even deeper way to heal; that of unwinding your central nervous system. As you receive your massage you will be guided into a gentle, relaxed and nourishing state that begins to create a place of resourcefulness inside so that you can actually begin to live and feel better for the long term. Instead of just poking, pushing and prodding we work together to create lasting change that brings you more energy, more calmness and renewed vitality.
Oscillating Chi Treatment – For some people there is need to complete the session with a 5-7 minute treatment using a “Chi Machine”. This is a small unit that is placed under your ankles when turned on gently oscillates the legs and therefore the whole body, A very powerful tool and adjunct to the massage session which introduces the rocking movement. Painless and relaxing, this ‘extra’ treatment often leaves you feeling tingly and rejuvenated at a cellular level as well as being therapeutic for improving the flow of lymph and blood circulation.
Hot Wet Towel Treatment – Warm wet towels will be applied to select areas to increase circulation, reduce tension and soothe your nerves. This adjunct to the physical techniques applied will leave you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed and can be used to refresh the feet also.
Silicone Cups Treatment – Silicon cups are applied in a manner that is similar to the Chinese Medicine use of same but without added ‘fire’ or needles.

What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is noticing your thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations in the present moment without judgment. Using mindfulness-based strategies and interventions can improve a teen’s functioning and their quality of living often prospers.
The mindfulness- based approach is advantageous with teens who need assistance with managing stressors. These are not limited to highschool demands; common concerns such as anxiety, depression, problems with relationships and difficulties with paying attention and focusing can also be addressed.
Mindfulness is a natural part of being human that involves present moment awareness and can be cultivated through formal and informal exercises. Research on mindfulness interventions points to beneficial effects in emotional, physical and academic domains. Mindfulness is increasingly being integrated into academic and clinical settings involving adolescents and adults.
