Let us pamper you and take care of you on this powerful day of healing, 11/11!!

Must be at least 18 years old to participate. 


About the event: The essence/core/root of all healing is energetic healing. Low energy or slow energy can lead to disharmony, dis-ease, maladaptive patterns, low vibrating emotions, stress, and/or fatigue. Energy healing modalities clear and realign the energy system, aura, meridians, nadis, yin/yang, and the chakras to restore the mind, emotions, body, and spirit back to balance and harmony. When energy flows freely, disease cannot manifest. No other form of healing can dive as deep into the psyche and heal your inner wounds like energy healing can. This day retreat will facilitate your inner healing and expose you to multiple forms of energy healing: Sound, Chakra Balancing, Healing Touch, Reiki, Flower Essences, Cranial Sacral Healing, Thai Yoga Massage, Reflexology, and Acupuncture/Tui na. The day will begin with a 60 minute Sound Journey Meditation using singing bowls. Each woman will then have an individual healing session with a number of different energy healers throughout the day.  You will have access to 100 acres of the Kettle Moraine Forest and hiking trails, a labyrinth, medicine circle, and horse sanctuary. Lunch is included as well as snacks, beverages, special gifts and treats for each participant.  A licensed professional counselor will be on hand through the day to help you process your experiences.  The day will end with integration, centering, and grounding. This is an incredible healing experience!

All participants will receive a Chakra Balancing session with Dr. Christina. The Chakras are the main energy centers in our subtle body. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura or electromagnetic field. There are 8 main Chakras, minor, subpersonal, and transpersonal chakras. The Chakras’ function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. Each chakra is associated with certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual interactions. Low energy or slow energy in a chakra (or the entire system) can lead to disharmony, dis-ease, maladaptive patterns, low vibrating emotions, stress, and/or fatigue. Chakra Balancing clears and realigns the energy system restoring the mind, body, spirit, and aura back to balance and harmony.  During the session, clients lay on a massage table (fully clothed) while Dr. Christina works on your body (feet, knees, hips, along the spine and torso spine, neck, head, hands) and in your aura. The experience is very relaxing and peaceful and many fall asleep.

She is one out of 6 people in the United States accredited to train the Peter Hess method in the United States. Gina has recently finished over 250 hours of sound training with Fabian Maman in Switzerland this past summer. She is a certified Tama-DO (the way of the Soul) practitioner. Tama-Do combines Chinese medicine, sound/vibration, color and movement to facilitate deep healing on the etheric, astral and mental bodies. Gina will be opening the retreat with a guided sound journey; a meditative experience that takes you into a deep state of relaxation. You will be laying down on a yoga mat/pillows/blankets during the experience. 

Gina Roethle LMT is a licensed massage therapist, wellness consultant, and mindful movement instructor based out of Milwaukee, WI. She draws her expertise from training and certifications in complementary health practices such as Thai massage, Yoga, Dance, Ayurveda, Reiki, Meditation, nutritional supplementation and natural foods. All participants will receive a Thai Massage with Gina. Thai massage, often called yoga massage, is done on a mat on the ground. It is an incredible form of bodywork! The therapist uses her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. Thai massage also utilizes energy work, which, according to ancient Asian culture, treats the subtle energetic field within the body. It corrects blockages, deficiencies, and imbalances in the flow of this energy, which then is believed to improve the client’s health. 

Janet Fritts. Janet has been in practice in Milwaukee since her graduation from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in 2006.  In January 2008, she opened her own Chinese Medicine practice, Balance Point Natural Medicine, LLC. For more info, please visit: http://www.balancepointnaturalmedicine.com/home.html. All participants will receive an acupuncture or Tui Na session with Janet. Acupuncture is an inexpensive, non pharmaceutical therapy that reduces pain, inflammation and stress, improves sleep, energy and mood. Needles, that are as thin as a hair, are inserted at points along meridians of energy to encourage the body to heal itself. Or, instead of acupuncture, if you prefer, you may receive Tui Na, Chinese Eenrgy Massage. Tui Na is a non-invasive method using hands-on massage techniques to manipulate Qi, relieve musculoskeletal pain and discomfort by stimulating acupressure points on the body. This method assists in balancing the body’s systems and induce relaxation.

Ann Fothergill LMT. Ann has been a registered hygienist for 34 years but her interest in holistic medicine has led her to massage, aromatherapy, and Reiki healing.  She is certified in the clinical use of essential oils, is currently a member of NAHA (National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy), and is also a certified Reiki Master practitioner. For more info, please visit http://www.annabellesholistichealth.com/  All participants will receive a reflexology session with Ann. Reflexology is a form of bodywork that involves applying pressure to the hands and feet to produce changes in pain and other benefits elsewhere in the body. The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are certain points or “reflex areas” on the feet and hands that are connected energetically to specific organs and body parts through energy channels in the body. By applying pressure to reflex areas, a reflexologist is said to remove energy blockages and promote health in the related body area.

For more info please visit: http://www.areallybiglife.com/ All particpants will receive a Cranio Sacral session with Elisabeth. Cranio-Sacral Therapy, or CST, is a gentle, hands-on manipulation of a physiological body system called the cranio-sacral system. This system is comprised of the soft tissue and bones of the cranium (or head), the spine and the pelvis. Practitioners use light touch equivalent to the weight of a nickel. As a result of this tender technique, many clients claim that they can fall asleep during their CST sessions. The theory behind cranio-sacral therapy is that when there are blockages, an unharmonious balance in the body can occur. CST releases this blockages and restore the body to balance.
