Eden Energy Medicine & Biofield Tuning with Ellen
Tuesdays and Saturdays (No services on July 10th)
30 min for $40, and 60 min for $70 

Energy Tuning

Energy Medicine is a powerful way of working with your body’s subtle electrical and electromagnetic energies by accessing 8 systems, the best known being the chakras, (spinning energies at major nerve & hormonal centers), the meridians (energy rivers, mapped by acupuncturists), and the aura (or biofield, in physics terminology). Gentle touch connecting points across the body and work in the body’s energy field unclogs blockages and reinforces optimal energetic patterns so the body can heal itself.

Ellen uses a mix of applied kinesiology and intuition to evaluate the health of basic energy systems, helps your body create better flow in the compromised areas as you recline on a massage table, and teaches energy “exercises” for you to use at home to train your newly reinstated patterns to become habitual. She integrates the vibrations of flower essences, crystals and healing sound into her sessions as appropriate, to amplify and stabilize your inherent radiance.


Biofield Tuning

Biofield Tuning is an exciting new modality pioneered by Eileen McKusick, in which a client lays on a massage table while tuning forks are used to slowly comb through the biofield until places of dissonance are found. The dissonance corresponds to emotional charges that became stuck in our fields from difficult life experiences. Because our emotional charges move out into our fields as we grow and generate new ones, much like rings in a tree move out from it’s core, we can give an approximate age of origin to each stuck charge by comparing the distance from the edge of your field (birth), to your body (your current age). We continue to activate the tuning fork in that area until the dissonant charge entrains with the coherence of the fork, removing areas of static. Next we move this newly unlocked energy back to the body to buoy us up and help us heal.

The result is that when new difficulties crop up in life, we reference more clarity in our fields.  Many people feel physically lighter, clearer, better able to cope, and able to resonate with and attract the experiences and people they want to come into their lives. (Biofield Tuning is avoided in cases of Diabetes, Pacemakers, and Cancer.)

Wednesdays with Andrea $80/hour session

Reiki is a positive energy healing method that is usually done by the practitioner placing the hands in a series of positions on or slightly  above the body. Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation  response, helping the body to balance itself from a very deep level.

Reiki has been scientifically shown to decrease pain levels, speed  healing and relax the mind and body, creating an open flow of energy throughout the body and along the energy centers of the body.

Andrea Gray is a Certified Reiki Practitioner. She brings a heart centered approach, providing individual attention to her clients while  keeping their highest good in mind. During her session she facilitates the use of Koshi chimes, which help rid the body of stress and emotional blockages, creating a sense of inner peace and natural calm.

She also provides aroma therapy during sessions with the use  of essential oils.

Andrea has been working in energy field medicine for 10 yrs. She  graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh with a BA. As well as being a  Certified Reiki Practitioner she is a Certified Restorative Therapeutic Yoga Instructor, Healing Touch for Animals Advanced Practitioner,  Healing Touch for Humans Advanced Practitioner and a Certified Cherokee Bodywork Practitioner under Dr Lewis Mehl-Madrona.
