Massage Therapy



Massage Therapy

Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.



Indian Head Massage

The brain is said to be “the seat of the soul” & is also the centre of our nervous system. This technique manipulates the soft tissues of the face, neck & scalp & helps balance mind, body & spirit.



Cupping

Rather than applying pressure to muscles, a local suction is created on the skin to draw the skin, muscles & tissues upward to enhance circulation, relieve pain

Alternative offerings

Our approach to whole health allows us to offer a number of “alternative” therapeutic healing treatments including Acupuncture, Reflexology & various forms of healing such as Reiki. Book a consultation with our practitioners to learn more about how these healing modalities can help you.

Acupuncture

It is a safe & effective alternative treatment where thin needles are inserted into specific anatomical points on the body to allow qi or energy to flow through meridians, which are pathways, that travel throughout the entire body.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a focused pressure technique, usually directed at the feet or hands. Applying specific pressure using thumb, finger and hand techniques, reflexology reduces tension, improves circulation, and promotes the natural functioning of the related areas bringing the body back to a full stage of homeostasis and full relaxation.

Nutritional Consultations

A nutritional consultation involves building a detailed picture of your lifestyle, eating habits, medical history and any concerns you may have about your health. With this information we can work together to form an eating plan that suits your needs, your lifestyle and your daily commitments.

Energy Healing

Energy medicine, energy therapy, energy healing, vibrational medicine, psychic healing, spiritual medicine or spiritual healing are branches of alternative medicine based on a pseudo-scientific belief that healers can channel healing energy into a patient and effect positive results.

Workshops & Classes

The classes and workshops we offer are carefully selected to compliment our holistic approach to whole health. Learn how you can use the healing tools of Yoga, Art therapy, ecstatic dance, energy healing to increase your well being or improve mobility. Connect with your inner creative energies and enhance your life.

Meditation Mondays @ Kindred Spirits Holistic Centre
Jul 15 2019 @ 7:00 pm – May 18 2020 @ 9:00 pm
Meditation Mondays @ Kindred Spirits Holistic Centre

Join us for an opportunity to experience the benefits of meditation practice in a group setting. For the beginners, those who experience difficulty with meditation, and those ‘old hands’ at a meditation practice.
Each evening will have a short introduction with some information on a way you might approach your meditation and different methods of how to stay in the moment.

Some weeks we will offer a guided visualization throughout, but most will begin with some guidance on grounding and the breath, perhaps a theme to contemplate, leading into silent sitting for most of the time. Expect at least 45 minutes of sitting in meditation.

Comfortable chairs are available for approx 13 and a few cushions for floor sitting, but it is recommended if you wish to be seated on the floor that you bring your own folded blanket and suitable cushion.

This is presented as a sacred circle with the opportunity to share insights or questions that arise.

Some tea and conversation to follow.

$10 drop-in, payable at the door.

NOTE: NO meditations on Holiday Mondays. Watch for updates.

Into the HeART of You Painting Workshop @ Kindred Spirits Holistic Centre
Aug 10 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Into the HeART of You Painting Workshop @ Kindred Spirits Holistic Centre

Tune out the outside world, tune in to yourself, with an afternoon of Painting-as-Meditation!

This month we will PAINT the ENERGY of DRAGONFLY! Dragonfly can mean ILLUSION and can mean TRANSFORMATION. We need to see through our illusions in order to create transformation for ourselves (and the planet!) Are you living your life or the illusion that has been handed down to you?

If that feels too deep, we can play above the water like dragonfly, looking for what is MAGIC in your life or where can you create magic? How does SPIRIT speak to you? Dragonfly is considered an Elemental, that is, a kind of nature spirit. Maybe by painting dragonfly energy you discover where you need more connection with nature to enliven your spirit! Part of the Illusion Dragonfly symbolizes is that the physical realm is all there is. She helps you tap into the realms beyond.

Stepping up to the blank canvas as metaphor-for-life is a chance to explore what you wish to manifest in your life. We infuse it with the energy we desire to experience. We experience some of that energy as we paint our intentions. And we get to know ourselves better with each bit of resistance we feel. AND it all becomes a moving meditation.

In this space there are NO expectations! NO judgment! NO experience required. Just saying YES to experiencing what a few hours of meditation and creation can do for the SOUL and your overall well-being.

This is part of my monthly series called “Into the HeART of You” Painting Workshops, using ART to connect with your heART. There will be guided meditation as well during this process, time for sharing, time to slow down…

Are you needing some “me” time? Do you feel you need permission to create just for the sake of creating? Always been dying to paint but thought you needed to be art-schooled? Feeling frazzled by all the demands in your life and the stressful news of the world? Turn off your phone and join us!

This will be held at our new, beautiful, and serene Kindred Spirits location 724 King St Bridgewater.

~1-5 p.m. (please arrive about 12:45 to get organized)
~ 2 meditations
~easy-to-learn intuitive painting process
~all paints and tools provided, YOU supply your own canvas (min. 16 x 20″, 18 x 24″ ) and an apron or painting clothes.
~light refreshments provided
~$75 (TAX Included!)
~includes all supplies (acrylic paints, use of tools, brushes, stencils etc. ) and a light snack, EXCEPT canvas, for one session.

Please bring your own canvas, painting clothes or apron, and a journal and pen.

(If you can’t manage to get a canvas, I can provide for an extra $12. incl tax, paid by e-transfer or in person.)

This is about process more than outcome, and we are definitely NOT copying one painting. This is about YOU and your unique journey.

You will get basic instruction in an easy-to-paint process, and be offered a couple of design ideas to create your painting YOUR way.

This is about YOU. 4 delicious hours of self-care. A time-out to let your right brain flow into the world of imagination, possibility, colour, and symbolism.

There is a ticket link below to register and pay online. Pre-registration is required!! I only have room for 8 or 9. PLEASE do NOT wait until the last day to register.
