What Does a Private NeuroSculpting® Session Look Like?
The first thing we’ll do together is discuss and assess your needs. Then we’ll create a meditation that is specific to you, and your story. There is no wrong way to be in this practice. I will offer suggestions; you can take them, or adapt them to whatever works for you. It takes repetition to create a new story which can compete with the ones we’ve invested in over the years. This is why NeuroSculpting® is not built around having a certain amount of time to set aside for quiet meditation. It’s designed to be a tool you can access at any time, in any place, throughout your day. By the end of our session you’ll have created access points that enable you to reference the meditation in your everyday life.

How is Hula Hooping beneficial?
Great news! Hula Hooping is not just a pastime for kids. The Hula Hoops are weighted and have a special tape that sticks to you slightly, allowing you to maintain the hula hooping for longer. Hooping helps build core strength, and a strong core supports all your daily activities. Hula Hooping develops core muscles such as the transverse abdominals and the obliques, and it's good for your legs, glutes and arms. Hula Hooping is also a great form of cardio exercise and a fun way to achieve your workout goals!
What is Meridian Yoga?
Meridian Yoga is a combination of Yoga Poses, Hands On Assistance, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), Breath Work, Shiatsu and Thai Massage. Inventor Daniel Orlansky says, "Meridian Yoga opens the pathways that allow prana to flow throughout the body and helps bring harmony, lightness and joy to one's entire being."
What is Positional Therapy?
Positional Therapy is a Physical Therapy Technique, which some call a "Magic-Technique." In Positional Therapy, the hips are considered the foundation of good body alignment. When the hips aren’t aligned, people often feel it in the neck and shoulders first. Squaring off the hips can correct the alignment of the entire body.
Positional Therapy consists of two parts, a muscle energy technique, and a strain and counter strain technique. The muscle energy work deals with assisted stretching and resisting. Strain and counter strain works with the tender points of the body, bringing the origin of the muscle to the insertion of the muscle. This slackens the muscle, relaxes the tender points and releases them, thereby correcting the body's imbalances to improve movement, alignment and health. Positional Therapy is easy to learn and maintain on your own.
What is a Partner Positional Therapy Class?
Partner Positional Therapy is a private tutorial for individuals with a partner or a friend. I will teach safe Positional Therapy techniques: Muscles Energy Technique as well as Strain and Counter Strain.

I offer suggestions to help you make choices that enable you to vibrate on your highest level, and live your best life possible.
What is Reiki? What does a Reiki session look like?
The word Reiki combines the Japanese and Chinese word-characters of “rei" (spiritual or supernatural) and "ki" (vital energy). Reiki therapy works with symbols that offer health and healing properties. It is often described as “palm healing” or “hands-on-body healing” since the practitioner lightly places their hands on, or over, the recipient to facilitate the process of clearing and healing.
Reiki is done fully clothed on the massage table. I will place my hands on your body and work strategically with symbols, and energy, to help release physical and energetic blockages, and help restore balance to the body, mind and spirit.
How do I become a Reiki Practitioner with you? Can you attune me?
If you would like to become a Reiki practitioner it would be my honor and pleasure to attune you.
A Reiki attunement connects the receiver in an increased way to chi.
“The attunement (initiation) is not a healing session -it creates the healer. An attunement is given one on one in which the master passes down the gift of Reiki. The Reiki master opens the chakras of the receiver and draws the symbols associated with the Reiki over the chakras. This ritual doesn’t give the receiver anything new, it opens and aligns what was already there. It’s like plugging in a lamp in a house already wired for electricity. “ Diane Stein, Essential Reiki.
The main purpose of Reiki One is self-healing. I will guide you in the learning of the hand positions to work on yourself. Self-healing sessions are important as it cleanses the body of toxins. The energy of the body adjusts and your ability to channel it increases. Reiki One is also for healing others directly. You will learn hand positions for facilitating healing for others as well.
The Reiki Two attunement measurably increases the amount of healing energy and focuses upon emotional, mental and karmic healing in the person who receives it. The transition can take about six months. The tools for doing distance healing are also learned. Three of the Reiki symbols are introduced and used consciously for the first time. In Reiki one, the symbols are already in the healer's aura and they are used unconsciously through the hands during healing. In Reiki Two you consciously direct the symbols' energies.
Reiki Three is the master's/teacher's degree. The Reiki Three practitioner experiences a further increase in channeling healing energy. Reiki Three includes two more symbols and the method of passing attunements.
