Jin Shin Do® Acupressure

Jin Shin Do® literally translates as "The Way of the Compassionate Spirit." Applying the gentle techniques of JSD acupressure will allow you the experience of the body, mind and spirit to balance energetically. This balance "pervades the whole of our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual states of being." This is a lovely application for attaining a peaceful, calm and tension-freeing sense of wellbeing by the simple use of skilled touch on the acupoints and energy lines (meridians) of the body to assist your natural healing.
 
These methods of acupressure are based on one the most ancient principles of healing, in that simply touching a specific point on the body will release stress and improve health in the body. In an acupressure session, I apply firm, yet gentle. pressure directly to these "points" on your body, which relieves muscle tension, improves circulation and assists in balancing your energy. This simple and powerful technique has been shown to be very effective in treating headaches, backaches, and even insomnia.
 


Cranial Sacral Therapy

Marcia combines a basic CST 10-step protocol of gentle holds offering you a rejuvenating and balancing session.

This gentle approach assists the body by softly holding the head and other parts of the body for a natural unwinding that physiologically occurs inside the dura mater of the spine. The practitioner is, in a sense, a fulcrum to your body, as she holds and waits for your body to release through subtle shifts and pulses of the head, spine and sacrum. It is a transporting experience...some feel as if they are floating in total relaxation!!

 


iRest®YOGA NIDRA

What is iRest® Integrative Restoration?


Marcia is an iRest® Teacher-in-Training Level 1 and has been influenced by the teachings of the Integrative Restoration Institute or iRest® and the teachings of Richard C. Miller.
iRest® is a combination of Restorative Yoga Nidra (deep wakeful sleep) and meditation. It is a powerful and yet effortless vocally guided practice that offers healing for our body, mind and heart. 
 
iRest is not therapy. It is done resting, seated or lying down and can also be used within your bodywork massage session or on your own. In your session, you just follow along with simple, vocally-guided instructions.
 
iRest is an unconditionally kind practice, meeting you "just as you are." 
All that is needed is You and your curiosity to welcoming yourself into your
personal experience.
 
iRest includes the time honored insights of yoga and is also met with evidence-based research in modern brain science.
 
iRest is not based on any dogmas or doctrines and relies only on your own personal experience.
 
iRest is Integrative in that it heals various traumas that are present in your body, mind and senses.
 
iRest is Restorative as it takes us "home" to our deepest, inherent knowing and true nature that
we all have in common.
 
iRest is based on the ancient yoga techniques of "yoga nidra" or "deep, wakeful sleep".
As your body and mind rest, you will arise afterward fully awake, aware, refreshed and rejuvenated.
iRest® is included within Marcía's Yoga & Restorative Yoga classes. Her teaching of iRest® has been informed by the teachings of Richard C. Miller and the Integrative Restoration Institute.

What is Restorative Yoga?
In order to reduce stress, our body, mind and heart needs relaxation. Restorative Yoga is a restful and renewing way of doing yoga in comfortable positions supported by yoga props and bolsters while focusing on breathing techniques and using the iRest® protocols while deeply relaxing. A delicious way to rejuvenate and get deep, gentle self-healing.
