Windows to the Soul A Weekend of Transformational Techniques for the Eyes
April 20-22 2018 held at the Himalayan Institute, Honesdale, PA
Eye pictures and workshops in Iridology, Sclerology, Energywork with the eyes, Exercises featuring techniques developed by Moshe Feldenkrais,& Meir Schnider
This retreat will focus on working with the eyes to improve eye function and health, and body mind and spirit health! Changing the eyes can have a large impact on the body!
The day before and afterward Dr. Griffin will be on site to do manual osteopathic Eye sessions featuring Chikly's brainwork.
In this modality very specific pressure is placed on the organs of the abdominal, thoracic, pelvic cavity, or cranial vault. The area focused on is determined by the area of greatest restriction determined by non invasive manual assessments.
Restrictions occur when the connective tissue around organs get adhered, typically after the body experiences inflammation, or trauma,.Pain from restrictions is transmitted to the skeleton and muscles. The structure and range of motion typically is affected, and can be palpated by a trained and seasoned therapist.
Often restricted movement and pain felt in the muscles and skeleton, is coming from restriction of the connective tissue between organs. These dysfunction can be often be immediately resolved, or greatly lessoned, with the practice of Visceral Manipulation. This is simply an astonishing modality. Go to Diane Griffin at the find a practitioner page at IAHP's website for her extensive training info.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful technique that is effective in releasing head, TMJ, neck, and or back pain, and mental stress, depression, it is often helpful with learning disabilities. It can increase, range-of-motion, and can help assist with expansion.
CranioSacral Therapy does this by optimizing the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spine and around the skull, by freeing restrictions in the fascia. The practitioner works with the fascia, a connective soft tissue, which wraps around everything throughout the body, connecting it like a 3-d web..
Developed by osteopathic physicians William Sutherland, furthered by Dr. John Upledger, this therapy provides a deeply soothing and relaxing healing experience. Some have it for the delicious, experience it typically is, some have it to help them feel better.
This Modality is great for Trauma survivors who have chronic pain. Trauma can be from accidents, events like falls, car wrecks, or violent attacks. Pain may show up within months of the event, more often, many many years later. This Modality is deeply relaxing to the entire nervous system, and has helped people regain loss of movement, or complete loss of movement, and pain, with often quite startling results. Amazing work!
Chikly's Osteopathic Brain Work
Freeing the structures of the brain such as the thalamus, hypothalamus, and cerebellum, pituitary, reticular alarm system amydala, cranial nerves etc.with amazing benefits to cranial (head) and body functions.
A technique of dropping 8-9 Young Living Pure Essential Oils on the clients spinal column and muscles around the spine combined with soft tissue massage techniques and hot compresses. These techniques with the oils promote healing of the soft tissues of this area. Many client report a lengthening of the back and deep pain relief. Some actually measure a little taller.
Polarity therapy is a type of bodywork which is focused on the energy fields of the body, rather than the focusing on physical body itself. Relief is typically felt in the physical body as well as energetically.
This type of body work is also called energy work, because the practitioner intentions and places hands on or near the body, to balance the energy fields of the body. During a polarity therapy session, the therapist and client usually work together in a very calm, relaxed environment.
A deep way to invest a half an hour to 1 hour.
Typically preformed with client dressed.
Can be done in 30 min sessions.
Reiki is a Japanese word and is an ancient form of delightful and deep Spiritual healing work . As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, the Universe through Dr. D., works directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between the practitioner and the client, or can be sent through time and space.
Benefits of Reiki can range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain, and opening to joy, expansion, and latent gifts. Many clients have commented on the deep nurturing and extraordinary experience of receiving Reiki. This modality is typically preformed with a client who is dressed.
Dr. D. Teaches all levels of Reiki
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of localized hypertension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress, poor nutrition, or the intake of drugs.
During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques in order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite painful "it hurts good" at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
