Hot Stone Massage Workshop
The exact date of the history of hot stones varies. Some say hot stones date as far back to 6500 B.C. in China. Nonetheless, this ancient massage combines the use of hot and cold volcanic rocks with the soothing strokes of Swedish massage. Students will learn how to give a full body hot stone massage, its benefits on all of the systems, and how to prepare and care for the stones. Basic Chakra placement and essential oils will be taught as well.

Sound Therapy Level 1 & 2 : with Paule Guérard
This is a three level intensive program working with Musical Tuning forks – aluminum and stainless steel. Light, color and sound are partners within the hierarchy of the creative process. Harmonic sound, both audible and vibrational can locate and resolve energetic disharmony. This modality supports balance and is complementary to other therapeutic measures. It is a gentle and enjoyable method of work which can open up fascinating new areas of subtle work.
The first level of sound therapy teaches us how to help the body and its energy fields how to eliminate the static energy which tends to gather and pool – at once the expression of the stress and an added cause of stress. The body through its great receptivity to light and sound will quickly supports the brain, the major joints, organs, spine and chakras to naturally rebalance. In this way the body is not only encouraged to let go of its stress but also to unwind old compensations that are still active and are due to old injuries. Sound facilitates perfectly the natural state of health of the body. The basic work is done with 3 aluminium tuning forks, which emit an audible sound.
In the second level, we work more deeply on the spine, the brain and the skull. We also work on old traumas and the compensations deriving from them. In level 7 we add 7 vibrating stainless steel tuning forks, that form a diatonic scale.
In level 3 The work becomes more subtle as we work in the energy fields, rather than on the body and we continue to deepen our understanding of the first level. In level 3 students of acupressure can experiment with using the tuning forks on specific meridian points. Levels must be taken in ascending order: 1, 2, 3. Each course will include periods of practice, demonstrations, meditation and questions and answers periods. The creator of this sound therapy method is Mr. Peter Goldman(www.lightcoloursound.com)
