|"I allow the healing power in my body to manifest perfect health." - Louise Hay
Sage Butterfly - offering sessions in the healing art of ACUPRESSURE.
"WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT TO FEEL?"
Using the body's natural ability to heal, ailments such as bone and joint pain, arthritis, nausea, dizziness, anxiety, insomnia and many other imbalances can be harmonized while at the same time boosting the immune system.
Acupressure is a practice that uses the pressure of the fingers on specific points along our meridians (energy pathways) that can bring relief from both physical as well as emotional imbalance.
Acupressure allows us to affect the flow of "Qi" (energy) that runs through twelve main meridians (associated with anatomical structures and organs) and two special meridians (one running up each the front and back of the body) thereby establishing harmony.
Several of the benefits that are derived from acupressure include:
* relieves muscle spasms,
* builds the immune system
* strengthens tendons, muscles and joints,
* balances energy within the body to promote healing
* releases cortisone for reduction in swelling & inflammation as well as endorphins for pain
* helps with mental clarity
* increases blood supply and removal of toxins helping injuries to heal more readily
* brings an overall sense of calm to the body/mind/spirit
WHAT TO EXPECT IN AN ACUPRESSURE SESSION:
We begin with a short preconsult to determine any areas of health that are in need of balance and most importantly, what YOU as the client wish to experience regarding your own physical and emotional state of Being. This is followed by relaxation exercises such as focused breathing, a brief qigong movement session, shiatsu for back and/or legs and feet or facial massage. We then move into the actual acupressure where the goals of the client will determine the flow of the treatment.
One particular flow that is wonderful for bringing overall balance is our CHAKRA ACUPRESSURE FLOW. Acupoints along all of the energy fields are stimulated with intention to establish equilibrium within our chakras.(Click here to learn more about our chakras.)
Other options can be determined by the needs of the client. Here is a list of some popular flows:
* CHAKRA BALANCE (as mentioned above)
* SEA OF TRANQUILITY (Addresses anxiety, OCD, insomnia, fear...)
* GENERAL VITALITY (headaches, fatigue, sinus or digestive disorders, immune boost...)
* LOW BACK - JOINT PAIN - SCIATICA
* ACUPRESSURE & TUNING FORKS
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE AN ACUPRESSURE SESSION?
This is totally dependent upon your individual needs. If you are just interested in basic relaxation/release of stress, there would be no 'prescriptive' amount of sessions recommended. If, however, you are suffering from a chronic or an acute problem (pain in bones or joints, digestive issues, etc.) one would most likely benefit from several sessions, beginning with 1 or 2 a week and tapering as symptoms subside.

My husband and I have known Maureen since we started attending her yoga class a little over a year ago. Her calming, soothing presence was an immediate draw, and her professionalism, enthusiasm and caring nature made us stay! When I later developed a series of distressing health issues, my doctor, besides prescribing traditional treatments, suggested that some alternative therapies, including acupressure, might be worth looking into.
I resisted because I'm not normally a believer in "hocus pocus" or "mumbo jumbo" alternative medicine, but after dealing with the pain, fear and distress I relented, and, out of desperation, I decided to give acupressure a try.
Wow, what a difference. I started with no expectations of success, but I was amazed how much it helped after the first session. I just wish I had started earlier! It feels like the best massage I've ever had, and while she works her magic, all of my pain and discomfort disappears during the hour I'm with her, and it persists. Should have done this a long time ago, and I highly recommend her services.
"Maureen is completely present and engaged with her clients during an acupressure session and creates a very caring but professional atmosphere. I was new to the experience and was amazed at the palpable movement of energy I felt and the calm centeredness that stayed with me after the sessions." - Faith
"In response to my first four acupressure treatments from Maureen Kelly, I have felt an awareness of enhanced energy flow both during and after each session. The healing, calming effects continue on for 24 hours +. Maureen is intuitive with client health, very dedicated and compassionate."
"The acupressure work our first session brought attention to some discomfort I was having in the solar plexus area and I realized I had need for increased energy here to both physically as well as emotionally digest some things in my life. Thank you, Maureen, for bringing this to the surface and for your healing intention." - Elaine
