Have you ever been drawn to a crystal, stone or gems?
In this class you will learn about crystals, stones, gems, their purpose and how to effectively apply them to your everyday life and/or within a bodywork treatment such as Reiki, Massage or Facials.
Crystal healing is an alternative medical technique in which crystals and other stones are used to cure ailments and protect against disease. Proponents of this technique believe that crystals act as conduits for healing — allowing positive, healing energy to flow into the body as negative, disease-causing energy flows out.
We will be exploring the most popular crystals used during this time to over come stress, anxiety and other ailments. Each student will be able to bring home a crystal of their own after exploring in this 1 day class.

So, what is sound therapy?
Sound therapy covers a range of treatments, from music therapy to sound baths, according to Nada Milosavljevic, M.D., founder of the Integrative Health Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. Like massage therapy, which delivers healing through touch, it’s a form of sensory it’s a form of sensory therapy, and it has been used by various cultural groups for centuries. The most prominent form practiced in the U.S. is music therapy, but the use of individual sounds and frequencies has been growing. Essentially, sound and music are noninvasive, simple, and cost-effective therapeutic tools.
Various flavors of sound healing differ much like other forms of therapy. Sound baths are one of the most common; according to Sara Auster, sound therapist and author of Sound Bath: Meditate, Heal and Connect Through Listening, sound baths use instruments like bowls to initiate "a deeply immersive, full-body listening experience." There's music therapy, which uses therapist-guided sounds to enhance memory and alleviate stress. Binaural beats, yet another form, involves playing two separate tones in each ear, which are perceived as a single, almost euphoric tone by the brain. Other forms of sound therapy work much in the same way—sound eases, energizes, and empowers us.
In this 3 Hour Intro to Sound you will dive deeper in understanding Sound Waves and Vibration and the effects it has on the body.
You will be introduced to many instruments such as Tibetan Bowls, Crystal Bowls, Tuning Forks and Gongs to name a few.
The class will conclude with a 1 Hour Sound Bath performed by Instructor Ashley Hirzel.

Integrative Reflexology® Certification 24CE
Reflexology is as old as walking barefoot—our bare feet pumiced by rocks, roots and leaves, stimulated by the texture of the Earth, and serving as a connection between our nervous system and the magnetic energy flowing through the Earth. Stimulating the feet for healing purposes is known to have been part of the ancient health care modalities used by our ancestors all over the world. Many ancient cultures directly connected the health of the body to the health of the feet.
Integrative Reflexology® is a four-theory approach to reflexology. Structural Alignment Theory, Zone Theory, Meridian Theory and Psychoneuroimmunology Theory each serve as a different lens for understanding how reflexology works and how we can view the body in a holistic way, honoring its complexity. This approach creates space for the body’s innate wisdom to provide the healing offered through an Integrative Reflexology® session. The Integrative Reflexology® method was developed by Claire Marie Miller specifically for massage therapists and has evolved to be a modality that is accessible to everyone.
"Reflexology finally makes sense!"
"Easiest chart to follow"
