In Ayurveda, marma points are thought to house the three pillars of life, otherwise known as the doshas. According to Ayurvedic philosphy, doshas make up a person’s constitution. The trinity includes vata (air), pitta (fire) and kapha (earth). Everyone is born in a state of balance, or Prakriti. During the aging process, factors such as anxiety, lackluster diet, or poor sleep habits cause disharmony among the doshas. Over the years, doshic imbalances begin to block the movement of free-flowing energy in the body. Eventually, the stagnation opens the door to physical and mental discomfort and disease.

Healing Touch Energy Medicine
Healing Touch is non-dogmatic and many hospitals offer it pre- and post-surgery to accelerate recovery.
The session is administered while the client lies on a massage table fully clothed. Practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way, acting as a conduit to hold space and direct energy where it is needed. With permission, the practitioner assess the biofield and proceeds to clear and balance it as needed using either off body touch or a gentle touch. Depending on the client’s assessment, specific techniques are used to open and balance the energy field surrounding the body and the energy centers within the body, which control the energy flow to the physical body.
Healing Touch Program is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC). It has been recognized in the medical community since 1989, and is used by more than 75,000 health care practitioners worldwide. The program was founded by nurse/teacher/intuitive Janet Mentgen, RN BSN. By extensively researching the work of Barbara Brennan, Brugh Joy, Rosalyn Bruyere and many others to bring together many teachers, techniques, and disciplines, Janet systematically adapted ancient healing practices into the modern medical world.
Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing.
During a session, you’ll lie on a massage table fully clothed, as your reiki practitioner gently places their hands, palms down, on or just above your body in specific energy locations. They use a series of 12 to 15 different hand positions.
Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospice, to complement other forms of health treatments.
