Kate is a certified Level One practitioner in Integral Breath Therapy. It was a part of her Yoga Therapy training. The belief is that when we have more prana, our life force energy, moving through our body, we will feel more radiant and alive. When and where prana gets stuck, is where dis-ease will birth in the body/mind complex. Breath Therapy is a therapeutic practice aimed at removing the blockages of prana, caused by unprocessed emotional experiences in life. These could be from childhood, even pre/post natal, or from yesterday. It works on healing the inner child, de-armoring the physical body to allow for more energy to flow, and deep release and processing for complete restoration of body, mind, heart and soul.

While Breath Therapy is beneficial for everyone, it is best to have some experience with processing work prior to beginning. If you are newly on your personal healing journey, it would be best to schedule a coaching session first, to gather some tools for regulation and processing, before starting Breath Therapy. Kate can also support you in the tools needed.

An energy medicine session feels like a wonderful wave of peace flowing all around and through you, clearing away all that you no longer need and filling you with beautiful, luminous light.

I will do an overall energetic intake to see where blockages are being held, talk with you about your goals and intentions for your healing, and give insights throughout the session as your energy body begins to give me information about the origination of the blockages and what it needs to balance.

Energy Medicine is a clothes-on healing modality that uses your own life-force energy to promote health on all levels of being; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Yoga Nidra is a mindful, guided meditation practice that allows the body and mind to enter into a deeply relaxed state with the intention of bringing the conscious mind into harmony with the subconscious and unconscious. While the body enters a state of sleep, the mind is guided into a place between sleep and wakefulness in order to accept positive instructions. These instructions are meant to promote mental healing through the power of unconscious visualization, pranic healing through the flow of light and energy in the body, and an increased sense of will-power and resilience.

This powerful technique has been shown to be useful in eliminating the root causes of negative thinking and stress. Through the perspective gained in Yoga Nidra, you may reduce the impact of stress-related disorders like hypertension, depression, insomnia, asthma, anxiety, chronic pain, digestive illnesses, and much more. Yoga Nidra is also shown to be highly effective in training the mind to access its natural well of creativity, problem solving, memory faculties, and learning abilities. Yoga Nidra is a highly recommended practice for those healing from PTSD, trauma, other imbalances of the nervous system, and brain injury.
