About Auricular Acupuncture
Auricular Acupuncture is based on the idea that the ear is a micro system, which reflects the entire body, represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Conditions affecting the physical, mental or emotional health of the patient can be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively. Similar mappings are used in many areas of the body, including the practices of reflexology and iridology.
Reiki is a Japanese 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. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
About Myofascial Release
Myofascial release is a therapy that treats skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.
Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body, including muscle. Fascia supports and protects these structures. Osteopathic theory proposes that this soft tissue can become restricted due to psychogenic disease, overuse, trauma, infectious agents, or inactivity, often resulting in pain, muscle tension, and corresponding diminished blood flow.
On April 22nd we'll be launching the mother of all Pink classes - SUPER PINK.
At the beginning of each season, our 3 multi-skilled Pink teachers (Roberto, Rishin and Clara) will be joining forces to host a deeply relaxing 2.5 hour Super Pink class which will focus on the regulation of energy according to Chinese medicine using restorative or yin yoga with acupuncture, massage, reiki and myofascial release.
Spring corresponds to the Wood element in Chinese medicine and therefore the focus will be on the Liver and Gall bladder meridians. Our first class will be lead by Roberto, who will be pampering everyone will his gentle massage and reiki techniques and Clara, who will be providing a detoxing auricular acupuncture. Our second Super Pink class of the day will be lead by Rishin, who will be using soothing myofascial release techniques and Clara, who will again be offering auricular acupuncture. We'll finish the class with our new Ganzsound meditation experience.
Due to the nature of this workshop there are only 12 spaces available. To book your spot, head to the timetable, scroll through to the correct week and you'll be able to see the SUPER PINK event listed on April 22nd.
