The Works! – 120 Minutes Book Now

Ever need to to just hit reset? Get Tuned in? I’ve created “The Works”, a 2 hour session that starts by pulling a past, present, future card spread. This will help focus your energy in the session. I’ll incorporate energy work (reiki, polarity, cranio-sacral), massage (deep tissue and Swedish), sound therapy, chakra chromo therapy imagery (sometimes guided) and the grounding use of crystals, hot stones and towels. The WooWoo is real and you are YOU, only “reset” better. Clients have marveled at troubles melting away, tensions easing, experienced lucid dreaming and eureka moments. One client said, “this is not a massage, this is an experience.”


Considerations: You should not get a hot stone massage if you are pregnant or have a sunburn. You also may want to reconsider if you are menopausal, as this could trigger a hot flash. If you are on any medications that list heat as a contraindication, reconsider getting this service.

– Be Aligned With A Earth Star Spirit Massage –

“The earth star chakra anchors the etheric and astral body to this life-time and the soul star chakra connects us to the ever expansive higher self.”

In this 2 hour session we use an Intuitive deck to bring awareness to the current energy field and anchor the session in this time dimension. I will use solfeggio coded tuning forks to get connected to information around archetypal chakra work that is manifesting along your personal past, present, future timeline. These solfeggio codes activate sacred geometry and help the DNA matrix realign to and remember soul purpose. We use gentle marma point massage and reiki along with cranio sacral to connect and soothe the body. Essential oils and crystals will help unlock the energy centers to that the physical body can follow. Great attention is paid to the head and feet as these are the entry and exit points of the etheric sushumna (main energy channel) and connector to the earth and soul star chakras. You will receive a follow up email identifying some chakra archetype information gleaned from the session.

Clients have marveled at troubles melting away, tensions easing, experienced lucid dreaming and eureka moments.

Ayurveda utilizes the curative properties oils, herbs to improve health and relieve stress. Enjoy the benefits of the ancient science of Ayurveda in a modern setting.

Hero Story! Featuring Chin From Corporate Cleaning Mon, 21 Sep 2020 19:32:35 +0000 By Elizabeth Halliday-Reynolds

About a year ago, during a quiet afternoon, the water pipes burst in the upstairs bathroom and within seconds our bathroom and hall were flooded! Yes flooded!

I had heard the un-natural sound of water gushing, so had run upstairs to investigate. Within 2 minutes I had the water shut off and had begun to grab every towel I could find to soak up inches of water everywhere! Let me tell you, Water is enthusiastic when it gets out on its own. No sooner had it hit home that our upstairs carpets were drenched even spreading into the surrounding treatment rooms, did I also realize that the water was finding its way through the floor joists into the downstairs hall way and gushing through the downstairs yoga room air vents.

Realizing towels were not going to be the solution we’d need, I put in a frantic call into a few friends for help. With the water in that bathroom off, the plumber could wait until the next day, but water damage! That cannot wait.

Enter my hero Chin and his fantastic team from Corporate Cleaning.

By 7pm that night I had clean carpets and could rest well, knowing that I was not going to have expensive repairs ahead of me. To this day, I cannot believe my good fortune to have Chin and his team arrive so quickly and take are of us.

CHIN is my HERO! He just might be your hero too.

Last week, Chin reached out to me and said he wanted to gift 5 new members to bliss with a complete car detailing service! What a treat for you! His team is so flexible too! Last spring, he had his team work on my car while I was at work at bliss! What a LOT OF HAPPY that was. I mean my is known to have some dirty little stories to tell. I am sure they found a 3 year old french fry. Suffice it to say, they did an amazing job.

We only have 5 of these so purchase your membership here so that I can share my hero Chin with you with his wonderful gift of a FREE complete car detail.

Swedish Or Deep Tissue? Thu, 20 Aug 2020 23:05:26 +0000 By Elizabeth Halliday-Reynolds

Swedish or Deep Tissue? We get this question often. Believe it or not there really is a difference between the two styles. While “Swedish” could be re-named light touch massage to help differentiate it better, that does not quite cover it either. The Swedish style is a series of massage techniques taught in most massage schools. It is known for its long, flowing strokes. Deep is much easier to understand in that the word deep is in there.

But to be sure about what you want or more specifically what your body might need, sometimes it helps if you ask yourself some questions.

Long Strokes Of The Swedish Massage Style.

Are you looking for a nice, relaxing session, where the touch could be firm but you might even be able to fall asleep? Perhaps you carry a little tension in one area (neck, low back) but you do not want someone digging in deep. If this is what you are looking for, then the Swedish style is best for you. – Book The Next Available Swedish Massage –

Focused Work Of A Deep Tisssue Session

Are you feeling as if you are so tense and tight in areas that this is causing headaches? Does your work or workout regimen create areas of tension where only deep pressure and focus work will create the release? Do you want to feel as if someone is “really getting in there?”. If the answer is yes to at least one of these, then Deep Tissue is for you. – Book The Next Available Deep Tissue massage –

Integrative Bliss

Is there something in between? Yes! At Bliss we developed or signature session that combines the two styles. The therapist will use a combination of the two styles based on your feedback. We are going to know where to go deep and where a lighter touch is better. You might have some focus areas that we will spend more time on. We are also going to utilize some awesome tools like hot towels and a few specific to you essential oils. This session is called Integrative Massage.

The video instruction takes you through each step of a skin satisfying facial. This will include the “how to use” your sample facial cleanser, exfoliation gel, toner and 14k Gold – Vitamin C infused patches.

You’ll really love the expert instruction on the best way to get results using your jade roller to reduce inflammation, support lymphatic drainage, increase circulation and yes! promote muscle relaxation. Don’t be surprised if others in your household try to take your jade roller for their use!

The high end serum does the work of reducing fine lines and wrinkles as it hydrates and plumps the skin. This part of your kit will actually last longer than two uses. Bonus is learning how to wrap those “ah! so nice” steaming towels on your face. This is a skill you will use all year long!

If you have ever had a session with me, you might have experienced this blanket sense of unconditional acceptance and presence with yourself during the session, and a feeling of deep rooted relief and peace of mind that follows. I attribute these aspects to the energy work that underlies every session I do. As a Reiki Master of 10+ years, and healing arts practitioner for even longer, I have spent my whole career honing these skills, and it has prepared me to confidently offer these sessions to you at a distance. As the client, you are asked to set aside 30 minutes of quiet time to fully receive the effects of our session. During this time unplug from devices, close the door and spend some quality time with yourself. You can do a low-energy activity like knitting, reading, journaling, doodling. Try some meditation, restorative yoga or gentle stretching. Listen to quiet instrumental music, or open your window and listen to the sounds of the world while your mind wanders. You might even feel like it’s a good time to allow yourself to take a nap. Have a cup of tea, or water nearby and ask others in your household to give you this 30 minutes of space to yourself. As the practitioner, I will be creating and holding a healing space for you during this time. I may use sage or other herbs to clear the space, and crystal grids to enhance the energy. After the session I will send a follow up email to conclude the session, with any additional session related notes. -Lauren
