THERAPIES + PRACTITIONERS

REIKI | MEDICAL QIGONG | CUPPING | ACUPRESSURE

TONY WOLFE

on Sundays and Mondays

RE-CHARGE AND REBALANCE YOUR ENERGY!

Within all of us is a beautiful energy called “Qi” or “Universal Energy” … it is an all-natural energy that is meant to flow freely throughout our bodies and keep us feeling healthy and vibrant.

Dis-ease occurs when your energy and life gets unbalanced or even blocked (working too hard, stress, emotions, poor diet)..  Energy healing restores balance into your physical, emotional and spiritual health!   Think of it like a stream or river.  When the water flows freely then it is light, bubbly, vibrant and full of energy!  However, if it gets blocked…the water begins to stagnate and it moves sluggishly.   When your energy is moving you feel energized, focused, healthy and rejuvenated.  When your energy is slowed or clogged, you feel tired, experience more aches and pains, are more likely to feel down or depressed, and are less able to fight off colds.

Energy work is a huge part of my life. When I do an energy session with you, the intention is to re-establish balance in the flow of your energy!  To get it moving, feeling light, feeling energized, feeling healthy, feeling rejuvenated!

REIKI TREATMENT

I have practiced Reiki for 20 years…and credit it with saving my life.  Reiki is a very gentle treatment that balances your universal energy, leaving you focused, relaxed and energized.  Your chakras will be scanned, and then will be unclogged, fully opened, and functioning properly again.  Your auras will also be smoothed out and balanced.  Reiki can be done with a very light touch, or completely hands off, working only in the energy field surrounding your body…whatever you feel most comfortable with. (You are covered with a light blanket for this treatment)

MEDICAL QIGONG

Medical Qigong works to remove toxic energy from your body, then energize it with new Qi, and finally ensure your Qi and blood are moving smoothly; and that your body, mind and spirit are fully balanced.  Specific organs can be worked on for healing.  Powerful sound healing techniques and specific movements can be utilized.

CUPPING

Cupping is an all natural healing method used in the East for at least 3000 years. It can help with the circulation of Qi, blood and lymph; great for pain relief and stiffness (really good for lower and upper back pain and stiffness that can lead to headaches), relaxation and have a detoxifying effect on the skin and circulatory system. Cupping can be either stationary or moving (like an awesome massage), and can be either plastic suction cups or fire cupping. Olympic athletes like Michael Phelps use cupping for health.

This is a PERFECT quick fix if you feel a cold coming on!

ACUPRESSURE

Anxiety/Sadness/Emotion Extra Treatment: Excess emotions can be a major drain on our body…emotionally, physically and spiritually. I will help you find certain points, called acupressure points, on your body that can help relieve the different emotional responses. Together with these points, I can place a temporary tiny bead on the acupressure point that you can activate whenever you want simply by pressing the bead. It can be really very effective, and gives you a feeling of helping to be in control of your emotions. Simply add this on to any treatment with me you choose!

MANUAL THERAPY

STEPHANIE VAN STROE

on Tuesdays

WHAT IS MANUAL THERAPY?

Stephanie does manual therapy uses manual assessment and treatment guided by these principles:

    • The body is self-healing and self-regulating
    • Structure and function are interrelated on all levels
    • The body is a dynamic unit that includes physical, mental, emotional, psychological and spiritual

She believes that imbalances in the human structure contribute to and are directly related to the development and maintenance of dis-ease. Utilizing knowledge of functional anatomy and the interrelationship between structure and function of the body, to restore proper body mechanics. Encouraging the innate self-healing mechanisms by removing obstructions that interfere with proper nutrition and drainage of the body’s tissue through manual treatment of the physical body.

STEPHANIE VAN STROE

I am a third year student of classical Osteopathic Manual Therapy here in Hamilton. I am eager to advance my education, to share the healing potential of this science, and help people understand how incredible the human body is. In my short term as a registered dental hygienist from 2010-2014 I developed plantar fasciitis and the beginning of carpal tunnel syndrome. Finding it hard to work effectively by the age of 23 I was driven to rediscover my own health, which lead me to Manual Therapy. Working with people continues to inspire me, igniting my passion to help. I am fortunate to be in this profession, and thankful to be a part of Circle Studios.

OSTEOPATHIC MANUAL THERAPY

SARAH PERKINS

on Thursdays

WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?

Osteopathy is an American-based manipulative science that was discovered by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in the late 1800s. Its practitioners command a thorough understanding of surgical-level anatomy and physiology, and uses this knowledge to manipulate the body and relieve it of dysfunction. Osteopathy is based on the principles that the body is a dynamic unit that has its own healing properties, and whose anatomy and physiology are interrelated at all levels.

Osteopathy seeks to find the reason causing dis-ease, relieves it, and allows the body to heal itself. The practitioner’s goal is to find the
health of the patient and augment it.

IS OSTEOPATHY FOR YOU?

Osteopathy can help a wide range of ailments because it is focused on increasing the health and healing abilities of the patient. It is gentle on the patient as well as the practitioner. Patients wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes for treatment so as not to hinder movement.

All patients with previous health conditions should get written clearance from their doctor to pursue osteopathic care. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

SARAH PERKINS

I am a 4th year student of classical osteopathic manual therapy – I unexpectedly walked into this discipline after working in developmental services. I came to realize that a majority of my clients as well as friends and family suffered from chronic pain and were unable to live their most fulfilled lives as a result. Searching for affordable, accessible therapy led me to osteopathy.

I am continuously amazed by the power of osteopathy and the power that the human body holds to heal. I am very thankful to be a part of the team at Circle Studios and I am excited for my future pursuits in this profession.

TRADITIONAL AYURVEDIC ABHYANGA MASSAGE

MELANIE LOURENCO

Fridays + Saturdays: Please contact to book

Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India, originating over 5,000 years ago and is known as the science of life: Ayur = life and Veda = Science or knowledge. It is a holistic medical system that defines health as the connection between mind, body and nature and offers systems to re-establish balance and increase vitality. Ayurveda is a wide-body of knowledge with many applications including diet, lifestyle, exercise, cleansing and body-therapies.  

Of the numerous body-therapies ABHYANGA is the cornerstone. It is a full body massage with warm herbal oil applied to the skin that restores balance to the body.

Working head to toe, this massage stimulates circulation through all the systems of the body, rinsing the lymph, nervous and circulatory systems, as well as the bones and soft tissue. Aiding with issues such as inflammation, indigestion and chronic pain, Abhyanga creates movement through the body invigorating all your cells, while deeply detoxifying and relaxing you. Come and experience one of the most ancient healing arts!

MELANIE LOURENCO

“Vitally linked to the profound harmony of the earth, the ancients knew every movement of the cosmos to be filled with universal abhyanga. The leaves and bark of the trees are continually massaged by the wind; the rocks and pebbles are rubbed by the streams and rivers; the animals, brushed by space, wind and the forest, are forever toned by abhyanga.” – Maya Tiwari, Ayurveda: Secrets of Healing
