How do you know it is the wind? You can’t see the wind. You feel her presence, you see the rustle of the leaves as she moves past, you feel her as she brushes up against your cheek and twists through your hair, you hear her dancing in the chimes. You can not see the wind but you know she is there. All your senses confirm her existence.
Chi (Chinese) or Ki (Japanese) or Prana (Sanskrit) is the life force or energy that runs through all living things and connects all things together. It is the breath of life that animates all objects. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that the energy runs through channels or meridians. When cultivated, these energies can be used for healing.
Thai Massage, Shiatsu & Reiki (among others) are healing modalities that palpate, cultivate & redirect the Chi of the body to balance & maintain optimum health. Thai Massage combines yoga style stretching with compression strokes to lengthen & tone the tissues. Shiatsu uses “finger-pressure” and palm compressions along meridians to maximize health. Reiki is a gentle, yet effective method of cultivating the Chi for relaxation, stress relief & an overwhelming sense of calm.
Do you feel alive? Are you filled with abundant energy for all your day has in store? Do you lack clarity and peace of mind? Use bodywork and yoga to cultivate your Chi and see where it takes you.
