What makes my sessions unique?

Each session you experience with me will be a new experience as you continue to do you self-work and as your “Intention” evolves. I am not your typical CranioSacral therapist, I offer a Shamanic and Intuitive approach to healing; I incorporate Shamanic CranioSacral, Intuitive Energy Healing, E.F.T., ONENESS, Chakra Balancing, and Divine Channeling (messages from your Higher-self).

The elements I incorporate in my sessions are the following:

Shamanic CranioSacral Techniques- With light touch and gentle manipulations to the Cranial Sacral system, self-corrected physiological activities take place to correct imbalances and treat a host of health problems.

Intuitive Energy Healing & Channeling- I am dedicated to my daily spiritual practices which has developed and strengthened my gift of intuitive channeling. With this gift I am able to intuitively track the energetic blockages in your body and release the low vibration from your mind, body, and soul. I can connect with your “Higher-self” and relay to you the messages and guidance that your Higher-Self has to offer you.

E.F.T Practitioner -The Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is the psychological acupressure technique based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without the evasiveness of needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest while you think about your specific problem – whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc. — and voice positive affirmations. This combination of tapping the energy meridians and voicing positive affirmation works to clear the “short-circuit” – the emotional block — from your body’s bio-energy system, thus restoring your mind and body’s balance, which is essential for optimal health and the healing of physical disease.

ONENESS Blessing Giver- The Oneness Blessing (Deeksha Blessing) is a phenomenon sweeping the globe, awakening thousands. It is a transfer of Divine Energy that has proven to be the fastest growing spiritual phenomenon in living history. This non-denominational blessing aligns awareness with the true nature of Being, ultimately resulting in conscious union with the Divine.

Chakra Balancing-Energy balancing and healing focused on each of the 7 Chakras which releases blockages in the body and spirit, releases trauma and low vibration, aligning the body back to a state of balanced health, awaken new found energy from the chakras, and assist in reaching new levels of spirituality.

Specialty Services for Autistic Children
When there is decompression on the Cranium (head), your child might experience the following symptoms:

Sensory issues
Delay in speech
Lack of eye contact
Highly Introverted

Many children on the Autistic Spectrum experience the above symptoms and with CranioSacral Therapy the Cranium will begin to expand and contract allowing the tissues and fluids to release, relax, and flow without restriction.

How CranioSacral works for Autism (and other behavioral and emotional issues)
Restores autonomic nervous system’s flexibility and adaptability

Enhances flow of blood and fluids throughout the body

Improves the internal environment for the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system

How does your healing modality work?
Throughout the journey of life, we encounter and endure stress, strains, and trauma that become trapped in our bodies. When our body holds onto the stress, strains, and trauma instead of releasing it, our tissues and fluids are no longer in harmony, thus our core body system becomes compromised. When there is disharmony in the body this will result in dis-ease in our body and symptoms of pain, discomfort, emotional, physical, and behavioral issues will arise.

How do you see your services evolving over the next three years?
I am currently involved in a Study with Autistic Children and the benefits of CranioSacral. Once the study and research is complete, I will release the information to the community through “Community Awareness” evenings. This will increase the awareness and education of Autism and other behavioral and emotional issues Children are facing; as well as increase the healing for these Children through CranioSacral. Many families are unaware of the holistic options available to them and they are stuck in the medical model with nowhere to turn; I want families to be aware of their options and feel supported through their child’s healing process.

Unique

Healing philosophy or mission

It takes a village to raise a child. Therefore as a family, a parent partnership or as a single parent, you should not be left alone to be “everything” for your child; there isn’t enough energy in a single person to do so. Physically, emotionally, and mentally one person cannot be “all parts, all persons, all personalities” for our child, that is why the saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child”. Children are born into this world very open and vulnerable; therefore they are very susceptible to absorbing other’s emotions into their emotional body. We are taught in this world to hold tight and contain our emotions instead of releasing them, therefore our children follow suit and begin to hold tight and contain their emotions and absorb the emotions of others. When children and even adults begin to contain their emotions instead of releasing them, it causes distress and dis-ease in the physical, emotional, and mental body. The stress that is placed on the body can create aliments and issues, for example: digestive issues, tics, ADHD, ADD, Autism, body jerks, tourettes, depression, anxiety, OCD, negative behaviors, relationship issues, & more.

How the “Old World” views our gifted children

Society unfortunately doesn’t view our “Gifted Children” as gifted, they chastise, shame, label, and try to fix our “Gifted Children”, when there is nothing to be fixed. Our “Gifted Children” enter this world perfect and it’s the world we live in that needs major adjusting. Our “Gifted Children” enter this world and are very sensitive to emotions (their own and others), their environment, food, and etc. When the world sends them energy of shame, indifference, negativity, and etc, those energies are internalized by the children, thus increasing the symptoms of digestive issues, tics, ADHD, ADD, Autism, body jerks, tourrettes, depression, anxiety, OCD, negative behaviors, relationship issues, & more. If we could just remove the shame, judgment, indifference and etc, we would only have to look deep inside our child and see what the “true issue” is. For example, a child that has ADD or ADHD, is caused most times by the environment they live in which is unbalanced for them (unstable, hectic, traumatic, and so on), thus if we can make positive changes in the child’s environment, most likely you will see positive shifts in their behavior. These “Gifted Children” are entering Mother Earth to increase our awareness, making us as a society drop and dig deeper to find solutions and cures, not band aids. When a child is acting out, we shouldn’t shame them or make them feel bad, we need to send them compassion and love and understand, a child is a result of their environment. As a parent myself, I have a practice of checking in with myself when I notice behavioral shifts in my children; I check in see where I am out of alignment in my life (stress, carrying heavy emotions, impatience, and etc). This is a very challenging experience for a parent, but in the end it is humbling and will save your family from much distress and obstacles.

A “New World” is being birthed, your child is of a “new evolution”, and thus there are new rules

I am sure you have noticed within the past decade the rates of child “emotional disorders” are on the rise. From children needing so called “special” therapies, education, diet, & etc, my true belief and a belief of many, is there is a “new evolution” of children entering our world forcing a “New World” to be created. Many of these gifted children of the new evolution are requiring the “Old World” to make significant adjustments to the school system, from the food we eat to requiring parents to seek out alternative holistic therapy and healing because the medical model is not enough or has rejected their child. The medical model has its place, but there is a huge imbalance and dependency on the medical model. We so quickly turn to the medical model for healing and we forget about our body’s natural ability to heal; we seek out the “quick fix”. This is allowing a “New World”, a better more natural world, to be created to benefit our children, us, and our future generations. We have lost sight throughout the evolution of humans on what truly matters and we have disconnected from Mother Earth and we are heavy stimulated and distracted to even notice how hectic and unstable the world has become.

Uniqueness and what makes you good

I see clients of all ages and my unconditional love creates a safe place for the client to soften, allowing the physical and the mind to step aside. As the mind and physical softens, I am able to connect with the client’s heart and soul and infuse the client with Divine love and light, thus releasing any low vibration that is holding the client back causing symptoms of trauma, emotional distress, behavioral issues, anxiety, negative behaviors, & etc. Many clients when they leave an energy session from me they leave feeling, joyous, light, free, content, & peaceful.

Why do you do what you do?
My passion is working with the “Gifted Children”

I am passionate about spreading the healing around the world and the children are seeds of Mother Earth. I am here to assist and teach them how to grow strong roots of their emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental bodies. I have always had a special passion working with our “gifted children”, reawakening their natural healing flow and teaching them to strengthen their gifts. I have two sons myself, whom are my spiritual teachers and have strengthened my gifts with working with children through my own parental experiences. Children are open- hearted by nature, all they need is to feel safe and loved and the healing begins right away. I am an assist teacher at the Sacred Journey Institute and I currently teach the Gifted Children’s class; which is a class designed to teach adults how to understand and learn how to strengthen the miraculous gifts these children have! I am currently in the process of formulating short classes for Children to re-awaken their magical essence and strengthen their amazing gifts!

What else might someone want to know about you?
I am a real person whom has awakened her spiritual healing gifts and I express them through energy healing. I have a passion and calling to spread the healing around the world and to awaken the healing gifts in others. We are all born natural healers, but in many of us, our gifts lay hidden inside of us because the world we live in does not facilitate the growth of our natural gifts. We are taught to conform and we are trained to be a certain way that suits the needs of the “external” world; we are pulled away from our “inner-self or inner-world”. We all have the ability to heal, ourselves and others; all we need is to be shown how to “tap” into our gifts.

Children’s Cranial Sacral Clinic Now Open on Sundays!
Beyond Wellness Healing Center has opened a “Cranial Sacral Children’s Clinic” on Sunday’s 10am-3pm.

Emotions are “Energy in Motion”
When children and even adults begin to hold their emotions instead of releasing them, it causes distress and dis-ease in the physical, emotional, and mental body. This negative stress that is placed on the body can over time create mis-alignments and other problems like: ticks, ADHD, ADD, Autism, body jerks, turrets, digestive issues, depression, anxiety, OCD, negative behaviors, relationship issues, & more. Once the lower vibration energy has released out of the body – the emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical bodies are in back in the natural alignment making the child happier and healthier.

What is Cranial Sacral Therapy?
It is a Light Touch Therapy that involves gentle manipulation within the Cranial Sacral System. This non-invasive therapy allows the self-correction of imbalances within the Body/Mind to take place in order to treat the health problem.

Your child will receive a 30 minute Cranial Sacral session with one of our gifted Sacred Journey Institute Students for only $40! Dana Massat will be supervising the Clinic, where she will be available to assist in the sessions and answer your questions.

Background: I started my healing journey in 2003 when I took my first class at Sacred Journey Institute (a certified school for CranioSacral).

My passion was always healing, so in 2009 I continued my CranioSacral training and started practicing professionally.
