Aandy, yesterdays class had a maturity I have never seen. I had never considered the (my)expectations from pose to did today brought back a nice memory, but boy how busy my mind gets when fatigued... This process of growth is so exciting!
Client remains clothed and while lying on a futon cushion will receive soft, gentle touch throughout their energy lines. Weaker points will intersect with longer touch and light pressure. This can be a profound experience especially after a yoga session. Practitioner may also incorporate Pranassage along with the Grounding Touch session. Pranassage movements are very gentle, passive yoga movements deigned to access and open the body. Some rhythmic movements are often included. No 2 sessions are ever the same.Both techniques originated in Costa Rica and are a joy to share here at Lotus Grove. (Sandy)
Amy offers a 60 minute Raindrop Technique® which uses organic therapeutic grade Young Living Essential Oils . Raindrop Technique® – so much more than just a massage! Imagine the sensation of sinking into a deep and blissful state of rest, as someone does the ancient Tibetan version of reflexology on your feet. As you slowly (even reluctantly) come back to your body and roll over, you experience the gentle splashes as therapeutic grade essential oils are applied up your spine and to your tired muscles. These oils are then “feathered in” using a spine-tingling technique inspired by the Native Americans, combined with massage. You can’t get more pampered than this!
This unique blend of aromatherapy, ancient Lakota Sioux energy techniques and reflexology is powerful for body detoxification, relaxation and freeing the body of old viruses stored in and around the spine. Raindrop also aligns the body energetically and frees up trapped energies in the major energy centers. The seven single oils and two blends, with anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties are applied along the spine and spinal reflexology points along the feet. Those who have experienced Raindrop Technique have experienced more energy, relief of back pain and stiffness, a boosted immune system, deep relaxation, mental clarity and overall increased sense of well-being.

A salt scrub can offer amazing benefits to dry or aging skin. Salt scrubs are generally more abrasive than sugar scrubs because of their sharper edges and, therefore, do a better job at smoothing the rough skin of the body. What really separates salt scrubs from sugar scrubs is that they offer therapeutic, mineralization benefits. Most salt scrubs use sea salts, which are natural purifiers that remove the toxins that block the pores of the skin. It helps the skin breathe easier, promotes better circulation, tightens the skin and improves skin texture. There are many sea salts used in scrubs including Himalayan, Mediterranean, Hawaiian and Dead Sea Salts from Israel. These various salts have different trace minerals, which include calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. The minerals help to promote circulation, reduce the inflammatory response, and act as a detoxifying agent and general muscle relaxant. balance is important, so after any salt scrub has been applied and washed off, I will apply a rich, organic, moisturizing body butter, oil or cream to replenish the skin’s moisture.

Sugar scrubs are gentler than salt scrubs because the granule is round and therefore doesn’t have any ability to “cut” the skin. It’s a far better choice for sensitive skin types and the only choice for the face. Sugar granules dissolve more easily in hot water, and they are less abrasive than salt scrubs. Sugar scrubs don’t have the mineral benefits of salt scrubs. Because of the smaller, finer granules, sugar scrubs make a gentle exfoliant that is suitable for next to all skin types and conditions. Sugar has the benefit of melting as it is used and less abrasive. (Sandy – Your home, My Home outdoors or at the Studio. Studio may have limited availability. Your home additional fee)

imbalances and blockages cause illness and pain. In cases of injuries, it is easy to observe injured or black and blue areas, as well as local tenderness or pain. However in many cases these blockages are not so obvious, creating imbalances and or pain in the body occurring on both a physical or emotional level. The needles stimulate the acu-points to generate a response from the body, activating the Qi and blood circulation, balancing the subtle energy fields, as well as releasing one’s endorphins, which are our own natural pain relievers for our body.
