Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of Traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body.

The 7 Chakras explained

As an “Energy” worker, the 7 Chakras are my doorways to unlocking and unblocking my clients true potential. The most asked question by my clients is “What the heck are chakras?”.

Be kind to YOURSELF!

Imagine that you had someone with you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and that person were unable to leave your side–ever. Now, imagine that you had to speak to that person all day, every  day, without pause. They could not respond and all they could do was listen.  Now, what if the majority of what you said to this person was negative?

The road to “Happiness”

Ohh, the endless search for “happiness”. Why is it so very elusive, this “happiness”? Why do others seem to have “it” and I do not? When will it find me? Oh, if only i were thinner or prettier or richer or finally found my soul mate…..then I would be happy! right?.

It never appears in the form of a person or a place. You can posses all the riches in the world, you could.

It is administered by  specific hand placement on what are called the 7 Chakras, or energy governing bodies,and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
