NATURAL COMFORT WELLNESS CENTRE
“ Your Partner in Holistic Health and Healing ”
The term “ holistic health ” has its roots in ancient Ayurvedic Medicine. Briefly stated, it implies that health has many facets and influencing factors and because of this, restoring and maintaining one's health requires many approaches. The ancients considered everything from what we ate and drank to the amount and type of daily exercise, prayer, learning, relationships and social activities as all contributing to our health or dis-ease. Today's idea of “holistic” includes those activities that support our mind-body-spirit in health and wellness.
Natural Comfort features holistic services and support that will exceed your expectations. Our services are given by highly trained therapists who truly believe in the importance of a mind-body-spirit connection for the establishment and maintenance of good health and wellness. We specialize in the promotion of Relaxation ~ Reflection ~ Rejuvenation ~ Balance through pain relief, detoxification, rest, discussion and meditation.
Full information on our Services can be found at the Centre. To get you started, here are some details on a few of our Services. Drop by and experience Our World!
ESSENTIAL OIL THERAPIES
Essential oils are the collected aromatic molecules from plant materials. They are derived from the woods, flowers, leaves, roots, seeds and fruit peels of plants. They are unique because although they are in liquid form, they have the ability to evaporate quickly into air. This means that they can be applied to the skin when added to oils, creams, lotions or gels, or left to aromatize the air via sprayers, inhalers, tissues or commercial diffusers. Essential oils have therapeutic properties and have been used for health and healing for thousands of years. These gifts from Mother Nature are waiting for you here at Natural Comfort.
Examples of our Essential Oil Therapies include:
Aromatherapy Massage – after consultation with the therapist, a unique blend of Essential Oils is created for each client based upon the client’s specific needs. This is then added to a vegetable-based Carrier Oil and applied to the skin in massage fashion.
Aromatic Body Wraps – unlike most muds, clays and gels that require showering off, our unique seaweed gel from France is intended to stay on the skin. These full-body wraps can be used for relaxation, cellulite, arthritis and muscle pain or lymphatic stimulation. After the aromatic wrap, a customized aromatherapy lotion is applied, making your skin feel young and fresh.
Shirodara – an ancient Ayurvedic treatment where warm, aromatic oil is gently poured over the forehead to induce a deep state of relaxation and illumination. Added to this experience is the playing of Tibetan Singing Bowls, which create tones and vibrations for a state of Samvahan, or Vibrational Healing. Often described by clients as “blissful”.
Animal Aromatics – our pets have an innate sense of what is right for them. By offering essential oils, herbs, carrier oils and gels for them to smell, they will guide us to what they need to get well. Great for helping make blends for conditions such as wound care, hot spots, emotional traumas and upset digestion.
L'Aroma Microvaporization - a treatment combining dry heat, filtered/slightly pressurized air and nebulization of essential oils. Treatments are given in quick succession as benefits increase over time. There are 5 programs to choose from.
This is a general term for our services that are hands-on in the delivery of care. Most people are familiar with massage work and the many benefits derived from this treatment. However, we offer several other treats you may also wish to consider.
Examples of our Body Therapies include:
Seated Chair Massage – for those people in a hurry or who have sensitivities to massage oils, this treatment is for you. The specially designed massage chair promotes gentle stretching of the back, shoulders and neck so the therapist can work on the tight muscles and attachments in those areas. Clients stay fully-clothed for the session. Consider this treatment for on-going maintenance of your healthy back, shoulders and neck and for pre and post Sports Care.
Lymphatic Stimulation Massage - the lymphatic system is a passive circulatory system that requires stimulation to function optimally. It is responsible for cleaning up the areas around our cells, transports nutrition and antibodies around the body and helps keep our immunity strong. In times of being over-worked, especially when burdened with excess debris and inflammation, it does not function at its optimum. LSM is a precise, very light touch massage technique designed to get the lymphatic fluid moving freely again. It can be performed on a specific body area or over the entire body. Facial LSM has been called a Natural Face-Lift for the results it produces! Allergy suffers report they are better able to breathe after Facial LSM, too.
Aqui-Chi Biomagnetic Footbath – no other treatment evokes the types of responses we hear than during an Aqua-Chi footbath! The water starts out clean, but depending upon your body’s level of toxicity, inflammation or tiredness, the water takes on many different colour changes! This treatment is especially recommended for those working on body detoxification programs, especially those for Candida (yeast) and for those with inflamed, sore joints and muscles. Many use this treatment on a regular basis as a barometer to gauge their overall cellular efficiency.
Reflexology - an ancient technique for stimulating each energy meridian and acu-point on the foot, thereby helping each area of the body to balance or energize as needed. The whole body is mirrored on the feet, so the whole body is cared for by working on the feet. Our session includes an aromatic footbath along with your treatment.
Aromatherapy Massage - please refer to note under Essential Oil Therapies
Indian Head Massage - this 30-minute seated massage of your shoulders, upper arms, neck and head will melt stress away, leaving you refreshed and relaxed. The techniques come from the ancient Ayurvedic tradition and have many health benefits for your muscles, skin, hair, eyes, mood and more.
These sessions recognize and utilize the subtle energy forces around and within us all. Until recently, most energy workers could not explain the how's and why's of what they did. Now, with the science of Quantum Physics and related studies, words like resonance, frequency, coherence, biological matrix and vibrance are becoming better known and helping explain what the mystics and healers have known for thousands of years. The presence of vibrational energy from colour, sound, aroma, magnets, meditative practices and healing hands all help with health and wellness.
Some of our Energetic Therapies include:
Reiki - was discovered in 1922 by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist monk. He went on to develop this practice and pass it on to many students. Reiki is often translated as meaning, “Universal Life Energy”, although William Rand describes it as, “spiritually guided life force”. Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind, emotions and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.
Reconnective Healing - Dr. Eric Pearl, a chiropractor by training, has introduced us to this healing modality. It is often a life-changing experience utilizing new frequencies to allow for the healing of the body, mind and spirit. Reconnective Healing is vastly different from any other energy therapy. These highly palpable energies are initiated during your session and continue on long after your session has finished. The therapist does not touch you during a session but rather helps keep you in the frequencies . The work is between you and God/Love/Universe (choose one!). One to three sessions are normally required to make lasting frequency changes.
The Reconnection – not to be confused with the Reconnective Healing sessions. This is Dr. Pearl’s specific technique for reconnecting your energy meridians and DNA to the axiotonal grid lines of the greater universal grid. This treatment brings in and activates these new lines thus allowing for exchange of information, Light and reconnection of DNA strands and reintegration of “strings” to that universal grid. Must be done in 2 sessions, ideally on consecutive days.
Therapeutic Touch – was developed in 1972 by Dolores Krieger, a Professor of Nursing at New York University, and her mentor, Dora Kunz. It is an interpretation of several ancient healing practices. It is a consciously directed process of energy exchange during which the practitioner uses the hands as a focus for facilitating healing. It is taught at many colleges and universities around the world. Each person experiences TT differently, but all remark on having a great sense of peace and comfort following a session.
Hawkins Protocol- Beverley has developed an energy session based upon the Kaballah. The client is first asked to choose a Colour from the Colour Wheel. From there, the session evolves. During a session, Beverley incorporates many energetic approaches including Bach Flower Remedies, Colour, Sound, Crystals and Aromatherapy. No two sessions are exactly alike. No two reactions are identical. But if one enters it with an open heart and mind, expect amazing things to happen!
The Chakra Ballet - Pat has developed an energy session based upon the Chakra system. Chakras are energy vortexes associated with specific body areas, functions, endocrine glands and emotions. The client is enveloped in the colours, tones, crystals and aromas associated with each chakra. Upon completion, the client is kept in this energetic cocoon for as long as is wanted. The experience proves to be powerful and illuminating for most.
Plant Spirit Medicine – is a gentle, energetic healing treatment that helps
support desired change and transformation. During the process of restoring
balance, many issues, whether physical, emotional, mental and / or spiritual
may be alleviated or lose their acute significance. Donna uses Traditional
Chinese 5- Element wisdom to better understand what a client needs at a deep
level, as well as what plants can offer in terms of healing.
In addition to our regular services, we also offer One-on-One Consultations for personal exploration and growth. These include:
Spiritual PhytoEssencing - developed by Dr. Bruce Berkowsky, a naturopath and spiritual healer. The goal is to create products that “mirror” the client’s Soul Print. After an extensive assessment, the therapist then takes up to a week to create a specific essential oil potency and homeopathic preparation which are used in a precise manner on precise days. The treatment can take from 6 to 9 months. Designed for those wanting to strengthen their connection to Soul and work through those issues and elements holding them back from their Source.
AromaGenera Emotional Release Work – developed by British aromatherapist and author Valerie Ann Worwood, this treatment combines the use of specifically designed essential oil blends which are inhaled throughout the session. These 9 blends are instrumental in allowing clients to access thoughts, feelings, memories and imagination that they might not otherwise do. Accessing, exploring and releasing these items are helpful in obtaining insight into one’s self and life patterns. For best results, a series of 6 weekly sessions is recommended.
Bach Flower Remedies - developed in the 1930’s by Dr. Edward Bach. There are 38 flower remedies which help address the client’s physical and emotional distress. The practitioner bases the selection of remedies on the client’s personality and the way in which they deal with life’s challenges. No two remedies are blended the same. The remedies don’t change the life situation or challenges, but rather they change our perceptions and attitudes towards those situations and challenges, making them easier to cope with
Customized Aromatherapy Products - Pat or Beverley would be pleased to create a customized blend for any health concern or situation you feel needs aromatic attention. Blends can include applications using creams, lotions, oils or gels or inhalations using nasal inhalers, personal or environmental sprays, cold/hot misters, or diffusers. Aromatic gargles, compresses or bath salts are also available.
Nursing and Holistic Consultation - Pat and Cheryl combine their nursing and holistic therapies
training to assist those preparing for hospitalization or for those recovering from a hospital stay. Our basic packages are customized to meet client’s specific needs. The connection between fear, worry and anxiety and increased recovery times, lowered immunity and slower wound healing has been documented in medical and nursing literature. With holistic approaches,we’ll help to improve your hospital and recovery experiences.
Aromatic Kinesiology – developed by Robbie Zeck, an Australian N.D. and aromatherapist and incorporating her 25 years of clinical experience, is a gentle approach to bring balance and facilitate positive change. Muscle testing is used to determine the essential oil, the Heart Blossoming Point (acupuncture point) and time line for the application. Aromatic Kinesiology can be used for Balancing Meridians; Alleviating Stress; as an Emotional Stress Release Technique , which assists in diffusing past, present and/or future events that are stressful; for Time Tracking to help identify and defuse the original point of emotional reference,where the feeling was first experienced and provides a safe passage back to the subconscious through positive emotional reinforcement and helps to initiate positive change and as a Healing Endeavour Process , which can be viewed as a desire that you would like to achieve, your next step in life, a healing intention or simply a goal.
On occasion, we also have VISITING THERAPISTS who offer their services at the Centre. Call us for details.
