Reiki is a form of integrative therapy based on the principle that the therapist can transfer energy into the patient to activate the natural healing process of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Reiki is very balancing and has been proven to promote deep relaxation and is used to assist the body's natural ability to heal both physically and psychologically. Reiki is performed with the client fully dressed and lying down. The body's energetic biofield is treated by the therapist laying hands directly above or directly on areas of the body. The sensation of warmth, cold or gentle tingling may be experienced during a Reiki session. Reiki is proven to promote deep relaxation, which is needed for the body to heal itself.

Energy healing is a therapy that employs a non-invasive, energy-based approach to health and healing. There are 7 main energy centers in the body called chakras for energetic flow, and each chakra correlates to specific body functions and organs. Energy travels throughout the body through meridians, or pathways for energy as observed in Eastern medicine practices. Chakras and meridians may be affected by emotional imbalances or trauma as well as illnesses, which in turn can affect the wellness of the entire physical body. Chakras may be tested for imbalance, and chakra balancing and clearing of energy can harmonize the magnetic field around the body (also called the biofield) as well balance the emotional state of mind. In addition to addressing the proper flow of energy throughout chakras and meridians, energy medicine utilizes the stimulation of specific neurovascular or meridian points that are directly related to internal organs and their proper functioning.
Acupressure is a non-invasive, hands-on procedure of applying gentle pressure to specific neurovascular and meridian points throughout the body, which are concentrated particularly in the head, hands and feet. These points are related to specific organs/organ groups. Targeted, gentle pressure is applied and held using gentle finger pressure to specifically targeted meridian points. There are acupressure techniques that have been shown to be effective in assisting patients undergoing chemotherapy, treatment for HIV, and autoimmune disorders .
TAPPING / EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE
Also known as E.F.T. or "tapping", this form of intervention draws on various theories of alternative medicine, neurolinguistic programming and energy medicine. EFT is an acupressure technique of stimulating "meridian" or acupuncture points which is used to relieve stress and anxiety while promoting healing. It utilizes finger tapping on ancient Chinese acupuncture points in a gentle, non-invasive manner to release energy blockages that hold stress and anxious emotions. Tapping has been shown to assist in the proper processing of emotional stress caused by past trauma and can alleviate destructive repetitive thoughts. E.F.T. can help resolve emotional, mental, and physical issues quickly, simply, and with no known side effects. Tapping has been shown to be extremely effective with those suffering PTSD.
EMOTION CODE/APPLIED KINESIOLOGY
Emotion Code was developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson, and uses applied kinesiology to reveal trapped emotions that the body can hold onto if left unrecognized and unprocessed. Applied kinesiology is manual muscle testing which may be used to uncover past trauma, which is often the underlying cause of imbalance and disharmony in the mind or body. Identification of past trauma can be an important first step in the healing process. Emotion Code / applied kinesiology can identify the damaging emotions experienced in past traumatic events, and often the age at which it occurred.
BLACK PEARL SANCTUARY
The basis of this deeply relaxing, rebalancing service was developed by Energy Medicine Pioneer Donna Eden and and Sara Allen and combines acupressure, gentle touch, energy balancing, and chakra cleansing. Michele also incorporates Reiki, essential oil therapy, guided meditation, and direct energetic healing that leaves the client feeling relaxed and energized at the same time. The therapeutic process calms the body's hypothalamus and "triple warmer" meridian through neurolymphatic stimulation, which calms the "fight or flight" (or stress) reaction. The balancing, deeply relaxing Black Pearl therapy is performed with the patient lying down while fully dressed, and lasts 45-60 minutes. It is extremely beneficial for stress relief, post traumatic stress, deeper sleep and overall wellness. Many clients schedule regular sessions and claim to feel calmer and better equipped to handle the stresses of life.
Michele is a Certified Trauma Integration Practitioner, who has completed the stringent training, consultation and evaluation requirements as established by the Attachment and Trauma Treatment Center for Healing. All holistic wellness services are administered utilizing the Trauma-Informed Care approach, which addresses past emotional trauma as the possible root cause of physical, emotional, and physiological illness and imbalance, and utilizes a team approach. Trauma-informed care addresses the underlying incidents of past emotional wounds in order to work toward regulation and proper healing of the mind as well as the body. Trauma-informed care allows survivors of abuse, neglect and mental trauma to "rescript" their lives through addressing past traumatic events while gaining a deeper understanding of the damaging, long-term effects trauma has had on the mind and body. As needed, clients may be referred to a licensed trauma therapist as part of a team approach.
