Sattva Bodywork

'Sattva is a Sanskrit word meaning 'clarity; the quality that illumines; the principle of light and harmony in nature; the mode of peace and happiness and poise of the whole being' .  This bodywork has evolved from Trager. 

It is a mind body healing approach that increases mobility, relaxation and inner peace through touch and movement. It is a form of neuromuscular reprogramming and movement re-education.  During a session, the practitioner is reminding the muscle memory, and therefore the mind of the client, what the feeling of softer, of easer, of freer is.   The utilization of these gentle, non-intrusive movements helps release deep-seated physical and mental patterns and facilitates deep relaxation, increased physical mobility and mental clarity.  Every contact with muscle and joint is an opportunity to create and deepen the feelings of lightness, freedom, ease and peace.

The effects of a Sattva session penetrates below the level of conscious awareness and continues to produce positive results long after the session has ended.  Changes described have included the disappearance of specific symptoms, discomfits or pains, heightened levels of energy and vitality, more effortless posture and carriage, greater joint mobility and deeper states of relaxation than were previously possible.  These changes occur through the breaking up of holding patterns that cause dysfunction. These may be massive or minor, old or relatively new, generated by psychological or by physical trauma, overwhelmingly debilitating or merely uncomfortable and inhibiting. 

It is really a learning approach to using oneself well, to being a whole person, to feeling oneself well integrated and co-ordinated and more connected to the universal life force. 

Dianne has been a qualified practitioner of the Trager Approach for the past 16 years, but is no longer affiliated with Trager Association in the United States.  For more information visit: www.tragerus.org

Therapeutic massage

can relieve muscle tension, provide greater joint flexibility, improve circulation, reduce blood pressure and strengthen the immune system.  It also can allow us deeply rest and connect with our own healing ability.

Ren-ai Lindley, Shelagh Dennehy and Sharon Lye are qualified practitioners of therapeutic massage.

is a non invasive natural therapy based on the principle that reflexes or areas in the feet, hands and ears, relate to the internal organs and systems in the body.  It is based on ancient Chinese and Egyptian healing arts, and draws on the oriental meridian theory. 

Palpation or alternating pressure applied to reflex points helps to achieve balance in the body, by normalizing the function of the internal organs that the reflexes relate to.  Reflexology helps to stimulate the body's natural healing process allowing the person to achieve physical and emotional well being.  It is an exceptionally therapeutic way to relieve many acute and chronic conditions and in addition, it is very effective at maintaining sound general health and well being.

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. When the flow of the "Life Force Energy" is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, toxicity, nutritional depletion, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, and from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

Breath & Vocal-Sound Work

Sound healing is an ancient, present and future healing tool. It can be used alone or in conjunction with almost any other healing modality. Sound has the ability to penetrate the cells of the body, the conscious and the unconscious mind, the seen and the unseen.

In our modern ‘busy’ lives, we often overlook the most basic of Life’s Gifts and thus rob ourselves of the natural rhythms that bring balance and health – the simple cycle of Breathing In and Breathing Out / of Receiving and Releasing is just one example.
When we hold on to stress in the body we have literally stopped the breath in those spaces and of course, this lack of oxygenation creates pain, stiffness and loss of function. These issues can be reversed simply by bringing awareness and breath back into those areas to release the stuck energy with loving attention.  Sound has the ability to penetrate all substance thus when it is focused with a healing intention into any part of life in need, it can shatter the dissonance locked in there to restore harmony and balance.
