ENERGY WORK: FT. LAUDERDALE, FL
All energy work includes the Thermae Experience Sauna Retreat.
Gratuity not included | In honor of your therapist/practitioner please give minimum 24 hours notice for a cancellation.
At Thermae Retreat, Energy Work refers to a broad range of therapies that all have a commonality: Frequency. Each of us consists of a physical body capable of thoughts and emotions, but we also have an energetic system that supports and nourishes the physical, emotional and mental. This energetic life force is known in traditional Chinese medicine as qi (pronounced CHEE). In the Judeo-Christian tradition, it is called spirit, and in Ayurvedic medicine it is represented in the doshas. All of our systems are tightly integrated. You cannot treat one without considering the others, so our approach, as always, is holistic.
The integration between our emotions and our physical body is obvious to anyone who has gone through a period of great stress. Emotion-altering techniques such as meditation and visualization can actually impact the physical body, triggering its ability to self-heal. The energetic component in all of this is less commonly understood. This is where the expertise of our Energy Work practitioners can add a great benefit to your overall health.
Shaman Michael Riveron | energy healers: Damaris MacDaniel | amy fodo | scott shurpin
90 minutes $149
This session is designed to get you aligned, centered and in touch with your sacred life force, which supports the process of gently uncovering unconscious patterns. You will access your inner healer to assist in clearing blocks on your mental, emotional, spiritual and physical levels. This life force energy courses through pathways in the body called meridians and chakras. Having balanced chakras and biochemical pathways is not only vital, but necessary for restoring proper energy flow. Gaining self-awareness and understanding your connection to all of life is a powerful tool in your transformation.
SOULBODY HARMONY MASSAGE
60 minutes $129 | 90 minutes $149
Based on the principle that we are both physical and energetic beings, this session is designed to marry the benefits of massage, energy work and sound therapy. A SoulBody Harmony massage is a unique experience that touches all the senses to maximize healing potential.
Massage relaxes the body and helps release tension from tight muscles. Balance is restored to the central nervous system through the use of craniosacral techniques along with heated Himalayan salt stones to help reduce the electromagnetic overload generated by electronic devices. Penetrating frequencies from the gong, crystal bowls and various healing instruments bring about the transition of cellular realignment through the medium of sound.
The combined power of these healing arts help the body, mind and spirit let go of stagnant energy while restoring an overall sense of serenity and well-being.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) | Michael riveron or Scott Shurpin
30 minutes: $69 | 60 minutes $129
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system – the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.
You endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system and nearly every other system in your body.
CST releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct by using a gentle touch to evaluate your internal environment. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CST naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being.
90 min – 2 hours $199
For those wanting to go a little deeper into their healing journey this session focuses on facilitating the release of blocked energies and emotional traumas through the creation of sacred space with the mesa.
Performed on a mat surrounded by a crystal grid sessions draw upon the shamanic wisdom of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition and incorporate the power of sacred sound, active breathwork and guided meditation to improve spiritual well-being. Craniosacral therapy and shiatsu techniques are also applied to help the body release restrictions.
