Ayurvedic Therapy & Energy Medicine

“Like quantum mechanics, Ayurveda holds that a human being is not a solid, stable material structure but an ever-changing, dynamic collection of energy and intelligence in the larger field of energy and intelligence that is the universe. The Marmani serves as the bridge or doorway between the body (sharira), mind (manas) and soul (atman)”.

Ayurvedic Marma Therapy is a good alternative to explore if you have health, medical, emotional, or mental conditions that you feel need more attention. Even if your life is going smoothly this method is beneficial to enhance your physical and emotional health. I had recently experienced a major, life changing event and was also having some unrelated medical problems and turned to Megan for help so that I could approach this time with awareness, curiosity and grace. In Marma Therapy, the use of essential oils and gentle massage makes for a very experiential healing session through the senses and the physical body. I found it can be an awakening experience or a quiet, peaceful one. Along with promoting physical & emotional healing, curiosity, calmness, excitement and resolution are among the many things that it can bring forward. Healing Touch is a more subtle method of healing and can be done remotely – very useful while we were in Covid lockdown. It isn’t unusual for unexpected feeling and thoughts to arise. Most often, I felt refreshed and uplifted after a session. In both therapies, Megan holds a space for the individual so that what needs to surface can. Each session is different. Sensations, thoughts and feelings may occur or they might not. Sometimes they happen after the session. Whatever may be going on in your life, having one of these therapy sessions with Megan will help in leading a life of health and wholeness.

I was looking for a drug-free, natural path to conquering the anxiety that has plagued me on and off for years. I found that path with Megan and learned so much more than just handling my anxiety. Megan’s energy healing brought me peace, a greater awareness of my body, and a sense of well-being. Because of my desire to learn more, Megan taught me about ayurvedic medicine’s views of life and healing which I now use and refer to daily. Megan is highly trained and very knowledgeable. I enthusiastically recommend energy healing with Megan.

Marma Therapy

A simple definition of a marma is “a connection point of body, mind and psychic energies.” Physically, a marma point is a juncture on the body where two or more types of tissue meet, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones or joints. Yet marma points are much more than a casual connection of tissue and fluids; they are intersections of the vital life force and prana, or breath. The origins of marma are in martial arts. In ancient India, the warriors understood the subtle energy and used this knowledge to disable an opponent.  The warriors who were hurt were brought to Ayurvedic physicians who’s knowledge of these same points was used for healing. Although marma point massage has been utilized for thousands of years, it has recently become familiar to the Western world.

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.  Enter Marma massage…

Megan combines light massage, essential oils & pranic healing to encourage physical & mental well being.

Ayurvedic Sneha Abhyanga

Megan will give you the opportunity to receive a loving but professional Abhyanga in a peaceful environment. In your session, you will learn how to do your own self massage at home. A professional consultation and massage will help you to know what oils to use for your constitution (dosha type); which is also dependant on the season and what your imbalance is. Megan includes pranic healing in her Abhyanga to bring energetic balance as well. Pranic healing is based on the fundamental principles that the body is a self-repairing living entity that possesses the ability to heal itself. Prana means life-force in Sanskrit . In an Abhyanga massage, the healing process is accelerated by focusing intention on the 107 energetic Marma Points on the body to increase life force.

At the Embody Studio, you recieve a more holistic and medicinal experience. In the hands of an experienced practitioner, you are allowed to simply receive the the therapeutic bodywork. When you are ready to self administer Abyhanga, you learn the compassionate balance of being both the giver of self love (atma prema) and the receiver.

Some benefits of Abhyanga:

Balance the nervous system, including reducing stress hormones
Increase the flow of oxygen to the cells
Hydrates skin and hair and improve complexion
Stimulates circulation
Reduce joint pain

Tone the muscles and facilitate muscle recovery

Promote healthy aging

Heart Basti (Hridaya Basti)

When the the heart area is anointed, the warmth and soothing pressure of the oil deeply penetrates and is absorbed into the skin, connective tissue, muscles, and nerves. The sensation of warm oil relaxes the heart and can remove any physical, emotional or energetic blockages including sorrow and pain. When the Anahata heart chakra is free of congestion, we regain a true sense of self. Removing the oil at the end of the session is like “getting something off your chest” and you leave with a sense of emotional well being.

Unlike most massage, this therapeutic body treatment is even safe and beneficial for individuals with heart disease, blood clots and respiratory issues. The head and heart can be slightly elevated if recommended.

Heart Basti Benefits:

Nourishes and strengthens cardiac muscles
Loosens the grip of grief, anger and unresolved emotion
Soothes the lungs
Eases respiration
Regulates cardiac function
Improves blood circulation
Removes energetic blockages in the heart chakra
Increases sense of calm, peace and joy

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 Healing

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.
