THE ANCIENT ARTS OF HEALING – JEEVANAYA WELLNESS

The definition of Reiki is spiritual or Universal energy.  The word Reiki is used to describe a hands-on (or distance) channeling of energy to promote well-being.  Reiki has been used for centuries to support the body’s natural balancing of energies.  The practice can help alleviate many physical and emotional issues by assisting the healing process.  At Jeevanaya Wellness Centre, (https://jeevanayawellness.com) your Practioner works with your Prana (energy).  They are trained to be able to channel the proper amount of energy to where it’s needed within you.  In some ways Reiki could be described as an internal air and ether – something that you can’t see, but can feel.

Using Reiki as a part of your Holistic health care can influence body, mind, spirit and emotions.  These influences often happen simultaneously.  Positive effects are found mainly in four areas:  acute/chronic pain, pain and well being during cancer treatment, stress, anxiety and depression.  During your Reiki visit you will be in a very peaceful room, lying fully clothed, comfortably on a table.  Your Practioner will place their hands lightly on or over specific areas of your head, limbs and torso.  During this time the Practioner hands often become warm and tingle.  Their hands are held there until they sense that the energy has completed flowing.  Then they move to a different area.  Clients feel a release of stress and they go into a deep relaxation which takes the body into self-healing mode.  Book you Reiki appontments at:  https://jeevanwellness.as.me/reiki

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is an ancient therapeutic process which understands that we have reflexes in our feet that connect to glands and organs within our bodies known to relieve tension, improve circulation and support the body to function properly.  The practice of Reflexology helps to manage pain, insomnia, anxiety, stress as well as hormonal and  digestive issues.  The effects of the treatment are uniquely different for each person.  A session begins with a brief health history and explanation of the treatment.  You’ll be asked to lay on the table – fully clothed, without socks, on a massage table in a comfortable position.  The Practioner’s trained hands will detect and tiny deposits and imbalances that they’ll work on to release blockages.  This is one of the safest and least invasive therapeutic practices of all.  Your session will last for 60  minutes and all points on both sides of the body will be stimulated through acupressure points through the feet.  Clients find reduced stress, improved relaxation, released tension, decreased pain along with increased  mobility.

Jeevanaya Wellness

THE PERFECT HARMONY BETWEEN MIND AND BODY
- YOGA -

There are many exercises that are marketed to entice us into movement, however for lifelong benefits perhaps the simplest and most affordable is Yoga.

Anita Kaur, or Jeevanaya Wellness in Barrie is an ayurvedic Wellness Consultant/Yoga Teacher who schools us today on particular styles of Yoga and who they benefit the most.  Amongst the numerous styles of Yoga available, Anita brings it back to the basics for us.

She starts our lesson with Power Yoga.  A Yoga that is especially good exercise for the Kapha Dosha people.  In Ayurvedic practice these are the people that sit long hours at their work stations, that don’t move, but need movement, are highly creative and involved in their work.  Power Yoga moves their body, increasing blood flow, lymphatic drainage, proper muscle strength and breathing techniques.  It is the most invigorating style of yoga.

The second lesson takes the Pitta Dosha people to task.  They are the  Type A personalities who are highly competitive which goes hand in hand with higher anxiety and stressors.  Anita would have these very busy people take part in a Yin Yoga class.  She tells us that Yin Yoga is a very slow, meditative and relaxing yoga.  It helps to still the busy mind through meditation and movement, bringing deep cleansing breaths to connect mind and body.  Yin Yoga is also very helpful in restoring balance to those who suffer injuries.

Lastly, Anita discusses Restorative Yoga for the Vata Dosha people.  These are the people in high stress jobs, enough to cause headaches and migraines.  The Vata Dosha type tend to have a lot of anxiety and restlessness which requires deeply relaxing body moves to remove toxins from body and mind.  Restorative Yoga is wonderful for any people with these issues or chronic pain as it helps healing through blood flow and again the use of props to support movement.

The Yoga teachers at Jeevanaya Wellness train their students that any Yoga teaches proper breathing, mindfulness, a joining of body and spirit without judgement.  Each type builds strong immune systems, strengthens muscles and mobility allowing us to partake in life to the fullest.

In closing, the staff at Jeevanaya Wellness invite you to sample their most exclusive Ancient treatments or even better, gift a Yoga Class or a Treatment to a boss or loved one for Christmas.

Exclusive Treatments:

  1.  Abhyanga Massage – a 5,000+ year old Ayurvedic practice of Dosha specific warm herb-infused oils.
  2. Lomi Lomi Massage, a 3,000year old Hawaiian practice which is done in long flowing motions and generous amounts of oil to promote harmony and balance.  (This is done by a Registered Massage Therapist so insurance benefits will cover this treatment.)
