Shirodhara

Shirodhara-silenceKick back, relax and let the world wash over you.

Shirodhara is an ancient Hindu-Ayurveda practice that helps to relax and soothe away stresses and strife. Warm oil is poured continuously over the chakra point on the forehead in order to clear your mind and cleanse the soul. Proven to help with headaches, insomnia, nervousness and fatigue, Shirodhara has been deemed so effective that it’s sometimes recommended to clear the calendar of activities the following day in order to experience its lasting, liberating effects.

How it works: Beneath your forehead lies your third eye, an important chakra point for balancing the body, as past impressions and experiences held here can create imbalanced desires and addictive behavioral patterns. Pouring oil over the forehead relaxes the nervous system, improves the function of the five senses, and removes energetic debris that can cause sleeping disorders, anxiety and mood swings. The oil drip lasts roughly 30 minutes, but it’s not unusual for clients to remain in a blissful state of tranquility for up to five days after their treatment.

60-minute session: $85 — this includes arriving into the space, a chat with the practitioner, and a few minutes of rest (savasana) after the oil drip. *Please bring a warm cap or scarf to keep head warm after the treatment, and an empty jar and receive the excess oil to use at home in baths or showers.

It is a Lipon Apache tradition handed down from Apache Stalking Wolf to Tom Brown Jr. of The Tracker School, and from Brown to Karl Direske of the Wilderness Fusion school.

As a student, Tara learns inside and outside of the “classroom,” and she feels that working with clients is the best way to learn. Tara seeks clients who are interested in working to heal their physical or emotional selves with her assistance.

Tara works on a sliding scale of $50-$20 per session and is available at the Annex on Wednesdays 9am-4pm.

Lomi Massage and Reiki

Fiona Yun – Mana Lomi Massage: Mana Lomi is deeply thereapeutic, effective yet gentle and relaxing. Finally experience deep, effective work that doesn’t leave you feeling sore for days. I work rhythmically, using broad strokes first then working more specifically. Clients are typically relieved of pain and tension and improvements in range of motion can be observed. This is work that can also be spiritual in nature, depending on the recipient

60 minutes: $75, 90 minutes: $111

Lomi ili’ili (Hot Stone Massage): Lomi ili’ili, translated as flat stones in motion, is a deeply therapeutic massage technique utilizing hot stones as tools. Experience deep relaxation and resolution to structural problems. The massage is warming, soothing you deep to the bone. The experience is transcendent, and is a must try for anyone who loves massage. Because this treatment raises the core body temperature, it is not appropriate for pregnant women. 90 minutes: $125

Holy Fire II Karuna® Reiki:  Experience deep healing for your soul, your mind and your body. This is a gentle yet powerful healing energy sent directly from Source. I simply act as a conduit for this energy, but the healing starts within you. I specialize in working with clients at a time of personal transition, particularly those who are welcoming new life or working through the grief of loss, as well as those changing careers, those who feel “stuck” and are seeing a new path, and clients seeking assistance in their most important relationships.  Sessions often include crystal singing bowl therapy, divinely guided messages from Source, and oracle card readings.  60 minutes: $75, 90 minutes: $111,  120 minutes: $145

Package deals of three or more sessions available
