Bring more loving touch into your relationship!
This class will teach the basics of Swedish massage with the intention of massaging loved ones. You will learn the five basic Swedish massage strokes including effleurage, petrissage, friction, vibration and tapotoment. We will also discuss basic body mechanics and supplies to use for your massage. At the end of the day you will be able to give your loved one a gentle and relaxing massage. Dress comfortably as the class will include hands on practice with your partner. All couples are welcome.
The practice of Reiki is available to anyone interested in learning this hands-on, healing technique. Reiki uses hand positions on and near the body to help channel life force energy that builds warmth and promotes relaxation, peace, security and wellness. Reiki can be used for self-improvement and to help treat others.
Promote Positive Energy in the Mind and Body
Reiki practitioners are attuned to a special kind of life force energy taught to them by a Reiki Master. They heal by moving negative psychic energy out of the body and channeling a positive life force energy flow through the body.
Negative thoughts and emotions contribute to negative and damaging energy resulting in stress, anxiety, depression, and even physical sickness. This negative energy disrupts the flow of our natural energy, diminishing our full potential for overall health and wellness.
A Reiki practitioner can charge your energy field with positive energy and restore the natural, positive flow of energy in the body that helps keep us happy and healthy.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is an intensive program designed to bring greater balance, control and awareness to our lives.
Three decades of research on the physiological and psychological benefits of the MBSR program conclude that MBSR participants report:
- Reduced anxiety, depression & addictions
- An enhanced ability to cope with chronic pain
- Enhanced understanding and compassion for others
- More positive and happier outlook
- An increased ability to cope with ups and downs of life by applying MBSR techniques

Mindfulness is both a formal practice and a way of being present in our lives.
We are all born with the capacity for mindfulness, a purposeful way of paying attention to what is happening at the moment. Often we find that we lapse into mindlessness or automatic pilot as we cope with the busyness of our lives. MBSR awakens our inner resources allowing us to mobilize our energy toward more fully becoming who we already are.
