Chakras are a bridge to Higher Consciousness helping us understand and heal ourselves. This is an intensive workshop created to deepen our understanding of the CHAKRA SYSTEM and how it affects our energy system. Bring Your Crystals! Note: This workshop will build on my April Workshop: "Walking with Protection".
Learn effective techniques to help you cleanse and balance your chakras so you can keep yourself happy, positive, calm and full of energy.
Chakra balancing creates a sense of equilibrium between your body, mind and spirit. When your chakras are returned to their natural frequencies, inner peace, well-being and happiness follows.
Stephanie uses meditation, mantra, visualization and crystals to help you connect to your higher self.

Sadness, guilt, low self-esteem, loss of interest in people and activities, sleep and appetite disturbances... these are the hallmarks of depression, a serious condition that affects 400 million people today.
As we've talked about, we advocate holistic treatment alternatives to mainstream treatment of mental health conditions, including PTSD, anxiety and panic attacks.
The Top 3 Services we offer at the Sanctuary for Boosting Mood and Alleviating Depression:
Did you know that regular massage helps depression? Several studies have found that massage lowers cortisol levels (the stress hormone) up to 50%, and can raise serotonin and dopamine, neurotransmitters that stabilize our mood. The result is less anxiety, a better outlook on life, improved sleep, and fewer aches and pains, another symptom of depression.
Yoga is another fantastic way to alleviate depression. Not only is there plenty of anecdotal evidence (just talk to anyone who has a regular yoga practice!) but research backs this up as well. Various studies have found that yoga improves mood, outlook, distress, anxiety, anger, hostility, stress, physical pain, and more. Heart opening poses and inversions are particularly effective.
Energy Healing- Reiki and Shamanic- can be beneficial to clients with depression in multiple ways, and this has now been backed up by research as well. Published studies have found that people who receive regular energy healing sessions have improved symptoms of depression, which continue after treatment has ended. Some of the benefits of energy healing sessions for people who suffer from depression include: improved in mood, decreased feelings of shame, guilt, and sadness; a significant lowering of anxiety (both short term and long term); improvement in relationships and interpersonal effectiveness; and increased energy/less burnout.

Facials and Well-Being by Jackie & Elizabeth
Did you know?
Facials can provide both immediate and long term benefits to the health and appearance of our skin.
In addition to the cosmetic benefits, here are 5 reasons you should treat yourself to a facial!
1. Preventative Care - Estheticians are trained to promote the integrity and resiliency of your skin. The skin is our body's largest organ and our first line of defense against germs, infection, damaging UV rays, and other external elements. Talk to us about how to protect and care for your skin to avoid future or long term issues.
2. Pamper Yourself - In addition to the different luxurious products we use on your face, enjoy a hand & arm massage, neck & shoulder massage, & aromatherapy, all while snuggled in our cozy, heated bed & under steam.
3. Quiet the Mind - A treatment in our facial room is the perfect time to be in the present and meditate.
(New to Meditation? Book a Learn to Meditate Session here!)
4. Rest & Relax - Booking a Facial allows you to have one hour of uninterrupted time to let your mind and body rest. This may even be the perfect nap time during our hectic day!
5. Look Good, Feel Good - Not only will you leave your facial feeling pampered but your skin will have a visible radiance and improvement. Practicing self-care is important to our self-confidence and well-being.
