Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR, is a powerful new psychotherapy technique which has been very successful in helping people who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress and many other emotional problems. Until recently, these conditions were difficult and time-consuming to treat. EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring quick and lasting relief for most types of emotional distress.
What problems are helped by EMDR?
The studies to date show a high degree of effectiveness with the following conditions:
EMDR is the most effective and rapid method for healing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) as shown by extensive scientific research studies.
The EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation, right/left eye movement, or tactile stimulation, which repeatly activates the opposite sides of the brain, releasing emotional experiences that are "trapped" in the nervous system. This assists the neurophysiological system, the basis of the mind/body connection, to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself.
As troubling images and feelings are processed by the brain via the eye-movement patterns of EMDR, resolution of the issues and a more peaceful state are achieved.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
“EFT” or the “Emotional Freedom Technique” is an energy therapy which releases negative emotions trapped in the body’s energy system. Developed by Gary Craig, EFT is now revolutionizing conventional therapeutic thought and astounding many who use it.
EFT utilizes the energy meridians of the body. All that is required is to simply focus on the negative emotion or problem and “tap” certain meridian points on the body. The real beauty of the technique is that anyone can do it; it is simple to use and easy to learn. You can use it on yourself, with your family or with friends.
The Essence of EFT
When a person experiences a negative event, it causes a negative emotion that is an energy disruption in an otherwise free-flowing energy system; this causes an imbalance, which in turn causes the emotional intensity that you feel when you recall the emotional event. By tapping various points on your body, pulses are sent through the body’s meridians to fix the disruption and thus remove the intensity. There is no need to address the emotional event.
The Benefits of EFT
Imagine experiencing quick, effective freedom from negative emotions, anxiety, limiting beliefs, inability to express love, years of doubt, grief, intense fears, phobias, addictive cravings and depression. These are the bedrocks of illness and depression and have been know to release easily through the use of consistent tapping.
Hypnosis is the epitome of mind-body medicine. Hypnosis enables the mind to tell the body how to react and modify the messages that the body sends to the mind. Everyone is able to learn how to go into a trance state since it is a very natural state of being. You’ve probably experienced this state while reading a good book, being totally absorbed in the story or driving on the freeway and pulling up to your destination and being unaware of how much time has passed.
Hypnosis or self-hypnosis is a highly relaxed state of being. The trance state is perfect for accessing the power of the unconscious mind.
Hypnosis can help with:
Diminishing Sleep Problems
Increasing Parenting Skills
Career Strategy & Life Goals
Supporting Your Inner Child
Controlling Fears, Phobias, and Anxieties
Relieving Allergies and Asthma
Helping Problem Solve
Reiki (Ray Key) is an ancient healing modality that uses the power of unconditional love to heal and bring harmony and balance to the body, mind and soul.
Reiki is a Japanese name consisting of 2 words Rei and Ki, meaning “spiritually guided life energy” (commonly known as “Universal Life Energy”), an energy which animates us all and is found all around us. Reiki is a form of spiritual healing using “universal life energy” channeled through a practitioner’s hands to the recipient.
Reiki is useful for stress reduction, physical, emotional, and spiritual healing and for pain management. The lineage of Reiki comes from the Dr. Usui method.
Reiki – a powerful and gentle healer:
Promotes natural self-healing
Balances the energies in the body
Balances the organs and glands
Strengthens the immune system
Treats symptoms and causes of illness
Adapts to the natural needs of the receiver
Enhances personal awareness
Relaxes and reduces stress

Past Life Therapy
Past Life Therapy (PLT) is considered one of the most powerful tools available for transformation in the fields of integrative medicine, psychology and self-awareness. PLT is a very effective means for discovering the underlying cause of limiting core beliefs, phobias, troubling behavior / attitudes, or intense relationship dynamics.
PLT is also effective at assessing strengths and accomplishments from prior experiences, re-experiencing a successful time which can bring a sense of balance and peace; clarifying direction and life purpose by viewing one’s blueprint for this lifetime. Another benefit is accessing the wisdom, peace and guidance that is available from the “interlife”, where our higher mind can assess our progress and give direction to us for our current lifetime.
