Description of Services
Ayurveda is the science of life is truly the most holistic system of medicine practiced for over 5000 years. It is a sister science to yoga incorporating herbs, food guidelines, specific asanas, meditation, aromatherapy, various body therapies for detoxification and rejuvenation to support the body‘s intelligence to heal and bring it back to its own natural state of balance. It is both preventative as well as an effective disease management system that is universal and very practical, targeting the root cause of illness and addressing each person’s unique traits and needs. It can be successfully integrated with conventional medicine particularly for chronic diseases to boost the immune system, increase vitality and strengthen the body, mind and spirit.

Reiki is a Japanese energy balancing technique used for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki flows to the areas in need, supporting the body's natural ability to heal itself. The treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and Spirit.

Yoga Therapy is an adjunct to traditional Western methods of healing. It uses the techniques of yoga (postures, breath, and meditation) to help individuals achieve their highest level of physical, mental, and emotional health. It does not subscribe to any one style or lineage of yoga, but combines the best of ancient and modern yoga practices into a personalized program designed to improve your state of health.

PanchaKarma is a deeply relaxing way to cleanse the body of accumulated toxins, release the negative effects of stress and provides rejuvenation to body, mind, and spirit. Your PanchaKarma cleanse is tailored specifically for you depending on your time and need for specific treatments. All herbal formulas, bastis, teas and foods are also specifically designed in this treatment. The PanchaKarma cleanse takes from 9 to 15 days depending on how much time you can take off from your regular activities. The preparation for the cleanse starts 3 days before treatments with a specialized diet plan specifically geared to your individual needs. Treatments then begin for a period of 3 to 5 days during which you are likely to spend 2 – 3 hours at the Sanctuary for 4 body therapies each day. After each therapy, you are sent home to spend the rest of the day doing relaxing, non-stressful activities and resting as much as possible. Once the clease is over, the following 3 days are spent in slowly reintegrating regular foods in your diet with herbs to increase your digestive fire. 

There are 7 main energy centers in the body, known as Chakras. Each Chakra is located throughout our body so that it correlates to specific body ailment and physical dysfunction; each energy center also houses our mental and emotional strengths. When we have a physical issue, it creates weaknesses in our emotional behavior. When we release the stale energy from the body, it can undo any tightness, stiffness, or malfunction of that area. The clearing of the energy can also balance our emotional state of mind. If you have achiness or stiffness, or certain reoccurring emotions and fears, you may want to consult with one of our healers to find out more about how they can help balance your Chakras!

This therapy uses tuning forks, color lights, color silks, and essential oils to balance the meridians, empower the organs, and harmonize the nervous system, chakras, and subtle energy fields. Use for releasing physical and emotional stress. 

Neuromuscular therapy is a form of specific bodywork that focuses on pain management techniques, based on in-depth client history and assessment of client’s needs. The work includes detailed trigger point therapy, and injury prevention and rehabilitation strategies, stretching/strengthening activities, and postural/orthopedic assessments. This work is meant for anyone who has active or chronic pain, limitation in daily life, and even the “weekend warrior” who finds themselves “stiff” after a workout.

Karuna is a Sanskrit word that means "compassionate action."  Karuna Reiki developed as a natural progression of Usui and Tibetan Reiki and is considered to be a "higher vibrational form of Reiki" that possesses "multidimensional properties."  Each session is often, upon request, provided while simultaneously receiving an intuitive reading regarding your divine purpose, spiritual guidance, support and healing.
The Sanctuary was created as a safe place for people to look at and begin to explore the issues associated with awakening to life purpose and spiritual ascension.

Healers, teachers, facilitators and yoga instructors are carefully selected to best support you on your path to healing and success.
