"I believe that the potential for vibrant health, as well as illness begins in our subtle energy fields (aura), and that acoustic sound(along with color and chi movement), when used within a specific harmonic structure, is the most effective tool we can use to dissolve negative energetic patterns and enhance healing and harmony."

Fabien Maman

Quartz Crystal Bowls and Sound Healing:

The pure musical notes of crystal bowls correspond to the colors of the rainbow, and produce vibrations which resonate and balance the energy centers (chakras), and the corresponding areas in the body. Many people who have experienced listening to the crystal bowls speak about how relaxed they feel and how easy it is to drift and enter into a meditation. They have also shared that they often see many colours and, over time, seem to become more aware of their own chakras.

Quartz crystals carry the vibration of white light which refracts into a rainbow of colors. As the quartz crystal bowls are played, the chakras respond and balance in a natural way. Vibrational Transformation transcends time and space.There are some who have experienced a positive shift in consciousness. As our awareness expands, we grow closer to our original authentic selves and begin to reflect this in our physical form.

Chakras, and all the parts of the body vibrate at different frequencies. A body is in a healthy state of being when each separate part creates a resonance that is in harmony with the whole being, creating wholeness. When an organ or another part of the body is vibrating out of tune, or non-harmoniously, it is called "dis-ease". Using sound and colour/light, we can provide an environment that is helpful in addressing these issues.

l'aura uses a creative combination of healing styles, tibetan bowls, tuning forks, crystal bowls and toning in individual sessions, healing performances and meditations. l'aura's unique presentation stems from a life time of developing her natural intuitive abilities with sound and with many years of training and experience with a practice using various healing modalities with her own techniques. l'aura uses an ancient unique form of chanting in her sound healing work.

Reflexology:

Reflexology helps to balance the physical, mental and emotional aspects of your whole body. For each person, the application and the effect of the therapy are unique. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet and by working on these points the Reflexologist can assist in helping to release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. Tensions are eased and circulation and elimination are improved. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself at it's own pace.

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes on the hands and feet which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through the application of pressure on these reflexes, Reflexology can relieve tension, improve circulation and help normalize functions of the related areas of the body. The person remains clothed except for the feet, and is in a comfortable lying down position. It is believed that Reflexology was practiced two to four thousand years ago in India, China and Egypt and appeared in North America about 75 years ago.(Reflexology Association of Canada).

Reiki: 

Experiencing a Reiki Session

The mind calms, the breathing slows down, and a feeling of well-being and centeredness and a better sense of perspective is attained. By receiving a one-hour session of Reiki, one physiologically attains many of the benefits that are similar to three to four hours sleep, such as increased oxygen supply to the blood and cells. This clinical observation, combined with the meditative state, makes Reiki a most effective natural stress reliever. Regular use of Reiki can lead to an increase in general vitality and well-being and a sense of inner peace. It is possible that it can greatly accelerate and promote the healing process and regeneration of tissue, and is capable of improving the quality of one's life to an amazing degree.

A Reiki treatment usually lasts sixty minutes, or longer if combined with any other modality. The Reiki practitioner places his/her hands gently and passively on different locations on the body, usually beginning at the head. Each position is held for a few minutes. Reiki is different from traditional massage because the person remains clothed. Unlike massage, Reiki does not require any form of manipulation of tissue or muscle so the hands remain still. Reiki will even flow through a plaster cast. It is common for the person being treated to experience sensations such as warmth or tingling flowing from the Reiki practitioner's hands. Most people report entering a very deep state of relaxation. Those familiar with meditation say they enter a deep meditative state.

Access The Bars

Running The Bars (Access Consciousness) is a simple, non-invasive, energy process where the facilitator lightly touches each point on the head to release the energy. Receiving this process (having your Bars run) usually leaves you with a sense of peace and space; and a feeling like there is more possibility open to you. This is an incredibly dynamic process that will not only leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed as if you have had a deep restful sleep, it can also change your life.

 EFT / Tapping

EFT or Tapping is a form of psychological acupressure, originally developed by Gary Craig, is based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture for over five thousand years, but without the invasiveness of needles. It is done by simply tapping with the fingertips onto specific meridians on the head and chest while thinking about your specific issue, whether it is a pain or emotional upset. The combination of tapping the meridians and voicing affirmations can help many to clear the emotional block, with the aim of restoring your mind and body's balance. For more information please go to my suggested reading page for the links such as: http://eft.mercola.com/ Dr Mercola's site has a lot of information and videos to help with using EFT.



Shamanism

Shamanism is an ancient spiritual practice. Many in the field of anthropology believe the work dates back over 100,000 years. 
The word “shaman” comes from a tribe in Siberia and it means spiritual healer or one who sees in the dark. Shamanism has been practiced in many parts of the world.
"A shaman is a man or woman who uses the ability to see “with the strong eye” or “with the heart” to travel into other realms. The shaman interacts directly with helping benevolent spirits to address the spiritual aspect of illness and perform rituals, retrieve lost power, as well as remove spiritual blockages.

One of the ceremonies a shaman performs is called a shamanic journey. A shaman goes into an altered state of consciousness and travels outside of time into the hidden realms that many term non-ordinary, or a parallel universe to ours.

Shamans usually use some form of percussion or sound, such as drumming or rattling, to go into an altered state that allows the shaman to journey into the invisible worlds to then assist others in need of change or spiritual assistance. 

Ho'oponopono

Ho'oponopono is an ancient Hawiian healing technique. Dr Hew Len helped to make it more accessible to those unfamiliar with the original Ho'oponopono. Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len wrote about Dr. Hew Len's profound experience in Zero Limits. He talks about the "cleaning" of oneself and in turn it has an effect on everyone and everything around us. The four statements that are used are: I love you, I'm sorry, Please forgive me and Thank you. He also uses a breathing technique and a few other things such as coloured water therapy. For the most part many have found good results just being aware of the emotion they are wanting to release and saying the statements to clear it away.

Therapeutic TouchTM

Therapeutic Touch elicits a deep relaxation response. As a result, it is often very effective to help control pain. It decreases anxiety and usually helps the client have a good sleep. Research has shown that Therapeutic Touch speeds up the healing process and is therefore helpful for wounds and fractures. Therapeutic Touch helps facilitate the body's own natural healing abilities. Most importantly, this gentle treatment usually takes the client into a calm meditative state where they can more easily access their own inner wisdom.

Therapeutic Touch is a contemporary interpretation of several ancient healing practices that was developed in the early 1970's by Dolores Krieger Ph.D., RN. and Dora Kunz , a natural healer. The basic assumption is that in a state of wellness "life energy" flows freely in, through, out and around us in a smooth and balanced manner. In the presence of things like illness, injury, pain and anxiety, this natural flow of energy is interrupted or altered. From a quiet, centered state of mind, the practitioner assesses the client and their energy field and uses calm rhythmic hand movements to facilitate a more symmetrical and rhythmic energy flow.

The practitioner may feel sensations such as tingling, heat, cold, fullness or emptiness and these sensations will provide some direction as to what could be done to make the energy field more balanced. It might be helping to release energy where it is built up, or directing energy to where it feels empty, or smoothing it where it feels uneven. Therapeutic Touch can be used on it's own but also works well combined with other healing modalities. l'aura teaches Therapeutic Touch.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis can release fears, phobias, physical symptoms, emotions and memories to be addressed and released in ways not easily available through conventional, psychological proceedures. It is also compatible with other therapeutic modalities. The client remains fully clothed in a comfortable poition on a massage table or reclining chair, during the session.

When recieving Hypnotherapy the client enters a light trance, the breathing slows and deepens, and the pulse slows down. Hypnotherapy is the application of hypnotic techniques from trained practitioners toward a specific, therapeutic outcome. Sometimes the issue may be resolved in as little as one session, but most require several sessions, depending on the need for reinforcement of the issue addressed. Hypnotherapy may be used by a practitioner by itself, or in conjunction with other approaches or therapies.
