clear quartz

is a master healer and can be used for any condition. it stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. it is excellent for soothing burns. harmonizes all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.

fire agate

This stone heals the stomach, the nervous and endocrine systems, and circulatory disorders. It aids the eyes, strengthening night vision and clearing vision at the inner, intuitive levels and outer, physical levels. It resonates with the triple heater meridian, and can be applied to bring it back into balance, reducing hot flashes and removing heat from the body. Fire Agate brings vitality into the body, preventing energy burn-out. Placed on a blown Chakra, it gently brings it back online. At a subtle level, Fire Agate clears etheric blockages and energizes the aura. It helps to eliminate cravings and destructive desires and can be useful in treating addictions.

Brain and Mood

ask one of out therapists if you are interested in any of these combinations.

Mom (the other FANTASTIC therapist we have on board, part owner....etc. etc.....) found this incredible little verse. hope all will enjoy.
stop awhile and hold you haste
healing and dreaming is never a waste
the cares of the day
will soon float away
if you only slacken your pace.

Vital Balance Bodyworks in the Prairie Post

thank you Prairie Post for the publicity.

Thursday, April 12, 2007

to compliment my previous post

one of my favorite little clients......

we most certainly have no limitations on age, gender or nationality in our practise. we have newborn clients to elderly...our therapies can help anyone at anyone age, at any point within the journey of life.
this little guy always asks for "tree-Mants" and equally offers to others. his little cousin Renee also enjoys the healing atmosphere and together they will work on each other. wouldn't it be wonderful to replace "bullying" in school with hands on love and healing.....hmmmm......if only we could convince people not to feel harrassed or assaulted. our nation is so concerned with "private" life that we no longer share and support through hugs and kisses....where is the LoVe?!?!??!?!

Crystal Healing

Crystals have been used for a millenia to heal and bring balance. They work through resonance and vibration. Crystals heal holistically, they work on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels of being. They realign subtle energies and dissolve disease, getting to the root of the cause.
There is a wealth more of information we will eventually share on crystals with you on this blog. I felt we would start off.. by introducing a very powerful one....especially in a techno-colored world.
Protects against cell phones, electromagnetic smog, radiation, psychic attack, spells and ill wishing, and negative energies of all kinds. Connecting with the base chakra, it grounds energy and increases physical vitality, dispersing tension and stress. Clearing negative thoughts, Schorl promotes a laid-back attitude and objective neutrality with clear, rational thought processes. It encourages a positive attitude, no matter what the circumstances, and stimulates practical creativity. It defends against debilitating disease, strengthens the immune system, treats dyslexia and arthritis, provides pain relief, and realigns the spinal column.

Much more to come.

u-nique: adjective
radically distinctive and without equal

having come home from a refreshing vacation I have embraced the oppurtunity to ponder "uniqueness." in a world that is so "cookie cutter" rounded, isn't it incredible to use our own hearts, our own intuition and our own conscience????? we are a mammal with a nature.....leaders of the pack, followers.....status and symbols. in a society searching for acceptance by their peers...when in short those most accepted are those who accept themselves FIRST!!!!! sooooooo.....go ahead, be adventurous, spontaneous and perhaps even a liTlE bit "unpredictable" and think for yourself.....don't be fed by the manipulative media>>> research your OWN findings....develop your own truths and tune yourselves into the divine.... reward is near.

You name it.......

One of the SINGLE most asked questions we are asked is:
Can this help ________ (name any human illness)???? B/c I have an ______ (family/friend) that has this _____......
We are happy to say that over 5 years we have pretty much seen it all. Regardless of the illness or discomfort....the root of the problem at some degree is an imbalance in the bodies' energy system. Our number 1 priority in our office is to have you leaving balanced that your body can heal itself. No one is a healer except our own bodies. We as therapists' can assist with the corrections needed energetically speaking.....however our health is individual responsibility...therefore we have the power to heal ourselves (through proper diet, lifestyle and attitudes). So...what can we help with??????
Let me make a brief list:
  • pms/menstrual issues of any type
  • tension...also leading to misalignment
  • emotional upheaval
  • physical degeneration (arthritis, degenerative dics...etc.)
  • joint pain
  • migraines/headaches
  • colitis/crohn's
  • bowel issues
  • addictions
  • fears/phobias
  • general stress relief
  • bunyons
  • numbness/pin prickles
  • immunity disorders
  • hip pain (sciatic nerve/psoas muscle)
  • terminal illness (ie. cancer) pain relief
  • sinus congestion
  • smoking cessation
  • creative awareness
  • pregnancy/labour care
  • fertility issues
  • diegstive upsets (heart burn/acid reflux)

to list a few.....

Anytime there is a blockage in the energy's delicate flow system for an extended measure of time results in an illness or discomfort, such as listed above. Through proper stimulation (and careful assessment) of these blockages, they can be opened up over time and health maintained. Severe imbalances in these areas can lead to terminal illness such as heart/liver/kidney disease, cancers.....etc.

If you have further questions or concerns please contact our practise:



***please be aware this imformation is not to replace a physicians advice. if you suspect you have a major illness please see your physician.

Lara Yule Singh

i stole this pic off her website. all copyrights and credits can be found on her site.

This talented young women is actually one of our clients' nieces
(thx for the TIP). She really has a catchy style that even my little guy LOVES to sing along with. The words of this song make it perhaps one of my favorites!!!!

Were the Day Takes You

Where the day takes you, and the nighttime too
where the fields are gold and pink and blue
where the voice of the wind, is a friend truly
and the grass is sweet, where it meets the river
Where an unkind word won't fertilize
and the fields are wise, the fields are wise
for with the wind, they bend and rise
the fields are wise, the fields are wise
Where the days are bright, and the nights are long
and every inch of ground is home
it's the softest wind that blows through the meadows
and the grass is sweet, where it meets the river
Where a mountain's soul lies in a pebble
and the water sings, the water sings
songs of quiet revelation the water sings, the water sings
Where the day takes you, and the night time too
where the fields are gold and pink and blue
where the voice of the wind, is a friend truly
and the grass is sweet, where it meets the river
enjoy, tell me what you think!!! :)

The other day I went in to the BEST LAB in town, where I have my printing done. I used to work for the original owner (Pam) when I was in school. It now has changed hands and the owners' husband hasn't gotten entirely acquanted with all of the regulars....although he is working on it!!! So he asks me, "So you do your photography as a hobby.....what else do you do??" So I proceed to tell him I do bodywork. It might be worthwile to mention he is a car maniac. He does a once over....and in disbelief..."BODYWORK!?!?!?" I guess I had to explain to him in the massage world, bodywork means hands on HUMAN body's not CARS. I got out to my car and BURST out laughing.
Was a good laugh for the day~~~

Regina EcoLiving

Awhile back I found a neat publication. It is thoughts, tips, suggestions, articles ....etc on many different aspects of conservation. Good for ANYONE to read, as I prepare to hop in my BIG 4 door Impala by myself, and drive to work...I am guilty myself. However, after reading this book we can no longer plead "IGNORANCE IS BLISS." We really should try and make a difference if we can. Sure one of us seems like nothing.....if even 1000, one of us's tried these things we WOULD make a HUGE difference. Regina EcoLiving is making a difference. I'm anxious to learn more!!! :)
ps. the books are only $10 plus shipping. Let one of our Therapist's know if you want us to hook you up!!! :)

Better vision is more than 20/20

*as exerpt from Martin Sussman's book "The Program for Better Vision."
"The eyes do not exist in isolation. They are an integral part of your total being affected by-and affecting-the body, mind and emotions in a profound way.
All parts of the visual system-the eyes, the muscles around and in the eyes, the nerve pathways to the brain and the visual centers of the brain-are very delicate and require a high degree of precision, coordination and flexibility to perfom optimally. Since it is such a delicate system it is very sensitive to stress, tension and fatigue of any kind, whether it's physical, emotional or mental. The visual system is also very sensitive to any nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that might be present in the body.
a holistic model of Better Vision includes these three components:
1. Physical eyesight
2. Inner vision (imagination, visualization, memory, dreams and attitudes)
3. Emotional seeing (expression of how we feel and a way to connect to other people..."Eyes are the window to the soul).
Vision problems often appear when there is both prolonged stress in the visual system and improper visual/muscular habit patterns.
Glasses and contacts treat the symptoms of poor vision very effectively. But glasses/contacts do not address the underlying factors that produced the vision problem."
There is an incredible amount of SOLID facts and research performed by the Cambridge Institute for Better Vision found in this book and the program that is available. See the above link for details!!!!
Having been plagued with so-called poor vision since the age of 2 I had once thought I would permanently have a weakness there. I soon discovered in the training and holistic approach we have maintained, that our body has the power to heal itself under the right conditions.....this of course would include our vision. When I was given this website I decided there was certainly nothing to lose. I'm just starting the program. I will keep you all posted with my progress!!!
Wish me luck:)
