Reproductive organ massage manipulates the Uterus, Fallopian tubes, ovaries, spleen, stomach, liver, kidneys, lungs, & heart. The goal of the massage is to cleanse, balance, & relax a woman’s body, making it an ideal environment for conception. The massage itself clears out toxins, bad emotions, excessive heat, and any deficiencies that cause organs to dysfunction. Often, when a woman has a problem in any of these organs, it is due to reduced blood flow, tension, and stress. By restoring blood flow to the reproductive organs, we can enhance the outcome of an IVF or IUI cycle, as well as assist with natural conception. And, by relieving the body of tension and stress, the organs can reopen and return to a healthy state, leaving the body in harmony. For women that are having trouble conceiving, a body that is in harmony can many times be the key to a healthy conception.
This bodywork focuses primarily on the feet. The theory of this healing work is that the reflex areas of the feet & hands directly correspond to specific organs, glands, & other parts of the body. Applying pressure to these reflex areas can promote health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways. The pressure may signal balance in the nervous system and release endorphins that reduce stress & pain throughout the body.
This massage blends three techniques: acupressure, reflexology and massage therapy, to reach an energetic restructure of the being. It alleviates stress, pain and tension through the regulation of the organ’s activity and the stimulation of the mechanisms that contribute to eliminate the body´s toxins. This massage allows the vital energy (Chi) to freely flow through the organism, taking the patient to a full physical, mental and emotional state of balance.

The physical movements, the complete Nuat Boran combines what we would call “energy work” on meridians which Thais call sen. Thais think of these sen as wind channels. In many ways they are similar to the meridians used in Chinese medicine and Shiatsu, but the origin of Nuat Boran goes back to ancient India in the Ayurvedic tradition rather than to Chinese tradition.
Yoga is beneficial for the health in ways that modern science is just beginning to understand. Even though it has been applied with therapeutic intention for thousand of years, Yoga Therapy is only just now emerging as a discipline in itself. More health care practitioners are starting to include yogic techniques in their approach to healing — and more yoga teachers give a therapeutic intention to their teaching. People who have never tried yoga before are starting to consider including Yoga in their treatment plan. As science begins to document the importance of understanding the interrelation of all existing things, it looks to Yoga with an intrigued eye, for Yoga speaks Unity in every word. As yoga techniques are researched and new data is gathered, it becomes easier for science and the medical establishment to understand and accept the benefits of Yoga Therapy.
It is believed that the primordial sound, along with the vibrations it produces, is the source for the creation of the entire universe. Sound indeed is a very powerful tool for manifestation. Humans, animals, insects and living creatures have utilized sound for understanding and communicating with the world around them. For thousands of years, sound has been widely used for spiritual practice, worship and meditation. These activities have resulted in a positive outlook towards understanding the self and beyond. Studies show how sound can alter the state of the mind.

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. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance. In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers and increases blood flow
Neural Therapy is the use of local anesthetic injection into specific areas of the body to reset the electrical communication of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). It can be effective for chronic pain and other entrenched illness and disease. In many cases the positive effects are immediate and permanent when administered correctly. Scar tissue and trauma can change the electrical function of cells thereby disrupting the ANS and also adversely affecting the innate ability of cells to repair, heal and detoxify. Neural therapy acts on the cell wall and can restore the proper bio-electric function and membrane potential.

Shamans work with the spirit or the soul. They heal illness at the soul level. They gain knowledge and insight from working with the spirits of nature such as rocks and trees, the land, and they gain knowledge from working with spirits of animals and humans such as their ancestors. For the shaman, everything is alive and carries information. You can call this spirit, energy, or consciousness. The shaman sees illness as a lack of power because it was lost somewhere in your life. In order to heal you the shaman returns your power to you. Some of our Shamans work may seem like a massage, while others may seem like a doctor appointment.
