AromatherapyAromatherapy
Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic, botanical essential oils in a variety of applications. Essential oils, known as nature’s living energy, are the natural, aromatic volatile liquids found in all parts of the plant. They are the life force and immune system of the plant. Using an individualized blend that addresses the health issues and conditions presented, the therapeutic-grade essential oils are applied topically, diffused, inhaled or ingested using the French Model.

The therapeutic and healing properties of essential oils are nature’s remedy that relieve pain and systemic ailments, enhance immunity, sooth the nervous system to create harmony and health, improve circulation, clear congestion, relieve respiratory and digestive disorders, headaches and muscle tension & pain, stress and fatigue, balance hormones and menstrual cycles, address menopause, fibromyalgia, insomnia and skin conditions.

While essential oils often have a pleasant aroma, their chemical makeup is complex and their benefits vast—which makes them much more than something that simply smells good.

Essential oils:

  • can destroy harmful fungi, viruses, and bacteria in the air we breathe as well as inside our bodies. While being deadly to pathogenic microbes, they are harmless and helpful to humans.
  • can act like hormones to keep our organs and bodily functions in balance. They can fill in the differences or stimulate production when our bodies do not manufacture the hormones we need.
  • can elevate our bodily frequencies, helping us to stay healthy and immune to disease. Their vibrations resonate with our tissues in helpful ways according to our wishes and mental directions.
  • are nature’s most powerful antioxidants that cleanse free radicals from our systems, helping to maintain a state of wellness and can extend our life spans.
  • work in our limbic systems to help clear negative feelings and blocked emotions, thus eliminating the root causes of many diseases and conditions.
  • support and increase our intuitive powers and sharpen our spiritual awareness, which is why many spiritual practices from all over the world from ancient times to present, diffuse the aromas of essential oils as incense in their sanctuaries in order to facilitate effective meditation and prayer.

The Aromatherapy Techniques offered include:

Lymphatic Drainage Massage ~ a light massage stimulating the lymphatic system to release toxins and distribute the healing properties of essential oils to assist the body to optimum health and address many health concerns.


Raindrop Technique™
~ combines the techniques of light back massage and Vita Flex Foot massage to relieve pain, restore physical well being and bring balance & harmony to the body - physically, mentally, emotionally - an effective detoxification and alignment technique

A technique that stimulates every organ, muscle and bone of the body at a cellular level through essential oils.

Raindrop Technique® (RT), developed by Dr D. Gary Young of Young Living Essential Oils, applying the best quality therapeutic grade essential oils to the body to create harmony and health. Raindrop Technique® combines the art of aromatherapy with the techniques of Vita Flex Foot massage and body massage in the application of essential oils to the body. Like light drops of rain the oils are dropped on to the back and then massaged in. This treatment brings balance and harmony to the body - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Stimulating every organ, muscle and bone of the body at a cellular level through essential oils, RT can not only help relieve pain and restore physical well being, but also set in motion healing processes that will last for weeks and months.

Essential oils are the life-blood and energy of plants. The oils in this technique were chosen for their effects on warding off bacteria and viruses that lie dormant or active in our bodies. Applying the oils to the body, they are absorbed through the skin and into the interstitial fluids. Only Young Living Essential Oils of therapeutic grade, which are grown wild and cultivated organically, are used.

Therapeutic-grade essential oils are antiseptic, immune enhancing, high in antioxidants, and highly oxygenating. The oxygen molecules within the oils help transport nutrients to starving human cells . . . a nutritional deficiency is an oxygen deficiency and disease begins when cells lack sufficient oxygen for proper nutrient assimilation. Providing the needed oxygen, essential oils stimulate the immune system helping it to do battle with foreign invaders. Clinical research shows that essential oils have the highest frequency of any substance and may create an environment in which disease, bacteria, viruses, fungus, etc. cannot live. They are capable of penetrating cell walls affecting every cell of the body within 20 minutes and are then metabolized like other nutrients. Essential oils have the ability to pass through the blood-brain barrier, therefore, they oxygenate and nourish the brain. They have a bio-electrical frequency that is several times greater than the frequency of herbs, food, and even the human body. Clinical research has shown that essential oils can quickly raise the frequency of the human body, restoring it to its normal, healthy well being.

Bowen Therapy
Bowen Therapy is an effective technique in structural and spinal therapy for lasting pain relief and rejuvenation. As a soft tissue therapy, light-touch cross-fibre “moves” are applied along the spine and at specific points on the body to release muscle, ligaments, tendons, fascia and nerve. Bowen Therapy initiates a process of natural auto-regulation to occur in the spinal column and consequently throughout the whole body, resets the soft tissue, opens energy pathways and activates the rest and repair system for healing. This gentle technique can be applied to an extensive range of conditions from musculoskeletal tensions and pain, to digestive, respiratory and menstrual disorders, joint discomforts, stress and emotional depression, and accident or sport injuries.

Bowen Therapy is a genuine holistic modality aimed at treating the whole person, creating balance through the whole body. Regardless of age or physical condition, it can be effective for most acute and chronic health issues and also provide a profound relaxation technique.

Reiki
Reiki

Reiki translates as universal vital life-force energy and is an ancient and simple “laying on of hands” healing approach derived from Tibetan Buddhism. Reiki is a gentle healing system that provides a holistic approach to health, including the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of dis-ease or illness. With releasing energetic blocks, supporting shifts in thought patterns and deep emotional releases, Reiki supports the healing process on all levels to encourage and restore balance and vitality.

Reflexology

Connect to your whole body through your feet!

Reflexology has evolved from ancient traditions as a bodywork practice that applies pressure to specific points on the feet, hands and head that connect to all the glands, organs, and body systems, sending energy impulses that clear blockages and improve circulation.

We begin with a soothing foot soak using Himalayan mineral salt and sea salt infused with therapeutic-grade essential oils. Then we prepare the body with a head and hand massage that begins the awakening of the energy pathways.

Finally. the feet are stimulated through a light pressure point massage that is relaxing, melting away stress and tension, assisting the body’s natural defense against illness and balancing the body’s systems. The feet are one of the best ways to receive the therapeutic-essential oils to support the body’s optimum health. A tailored selection to your needs is applied throughout the session. It’s like receiving an overall body massage!

Testimonial
"The series of NST treatments I received from Sylvia have facilitated some very positive changes in my life. Much of the joint and muscle pain I was living with has gone, I no longer have Indigestion and my Asthma is greatly improved. The biggest surprise for me, which was unexpected, I was able to clear some big emotional blocks that were holding me back! I am grateful for this therapy and will continue to have treatments on a regular basis".
Debbie Ingham, Toronto

"I attended my first restorative yoga class just as my maternity leave was coming to an end. It was the perfect opportunity to regroup and find balance and harmony. Sylvia [and Michelle] created a thoughtful and nuturing healing environment. The addition of some energy and body work that Sylvia performed on each us during the class was an unexpected but welcomed treat!"
Beth Dewitt, Toronto
