Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical issues.
The lymph system is crucial to our immune system and its ability to ward off disease. Throughout our lives our bodies pick up viruses, bacteria, environmental toxins, and food pesticides, among other things, causing poor health and sluggishness. LDT helps remove these bad actors, cleaning the body and allowing for improved health and often a lighter outlook on life. This state-of-the-art electro-sound lymphatic drainage technology decongests the lymph system and stimulates lymph flow painlessly and effortlessly in a gentle and soothing manner increasing vibrancy, good health, and mental clarity.
Cupping is truly a healing that leaves no sickness behind. It was prescribed by the Prophet Muhammad (alayhi salaam) who described it as “the best of remedies,” shares a practitioner. “I invite you to say ‘yes’ to this holy healing.”
To close out the Wellness Getaway, participants are led through a guided Group Healing. It is a lovely opportunity to join with others in a supportive atmosphere, explore our spiritual journey and perform a prayerful meditation designed to bring us closer to our Lord.
Spiritual healing is an introspective and collaborative journey. Together, the practitioner and their client identify the source of challenges and, through meditative prayer, the heart is healed and the soul is uplifted.
Combining spiritual healing with bodywork allows both the physical body stresses and the underlying spiritual, emotional and energetic causes to be addressed at the same time. Connecting first to a higher source, to God, and then energetically to the client’s heart, releases the pain of the physical body, emotional heart, and deep soul. Often certain beliefs or “stories” are causing the underlying discomfort. Examples of emotional beliefs could be: “I’m not good enough” or “I’m all alone in this world” or “I have to do it all myself”. Examples of deeper soul stories could be: “God doesn’t love me”; “God has forgotten about me” or anger at God for your life.
To address these, silent recitation of healing qualities such as love, peace, compassion, mercy, forgiveness, or strength may be made, as well as specific prayers, examples of which could be: for health, light, forgiveness or against pain or darkness, or other prayers as needed.
This practice is based on the Baptiste vinyasa style of yoga and grounded in basic Sufi teachings, prayers, and chants but losing none of the Vedic wisdom which underlies yoga in all its forms. The intensity of the practice varies with the needs of the students.
