Complementary Therapies

Reflexology

Reflexology is a therapeutic modality involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort and pain. Relexology promotes healing by stimulating the nerves in the body and encouraging the flow of blood.

Conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic bowel syndromes, tension headaches, menstrual disorders, arthritis, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, neck and back pain, and stress-related issues that can be treated with Reflexology.
In the absence of any particular malady or abnormality, reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness.

Coaching and Counseling: Torin Lee

Life Coaching

Life Coaching is a designed alliance between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to you, the client. We believe that you know the answers to every question or challenge you may have in your life, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or hidden inside. This type of coaching is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling. The coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client’s personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be.

Pastoral Counseling

Pastoral Counseling provides individual, couple, and family counseling. A Pastoral Counselor has experience and training to help in evaluating needs and goals and gaining awareness and skills to handle changes and challenges in life. Likewise, a Pastoral Counselor can help clients reflect on their lives from a spiritual perspective and draw on their own faith as the clients choose.

Reiki and Energy Healing:  Melanie VanOstrand

Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on and visualization techniques to improve the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means “universal life energy” in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level.

Reiki may assist with reducing stress, stimulating the immune system, increasing energy, and relieving the pain and symptoms of health conditions.  Reiki is a gentle and safe technique, and has been used successfully in hospitals. It has been found to be very calming and reassuring for those suffering from physical and emotional ailments.  Reiki is beneficial to any person seeking better balance within themselves.  Clients remain fully clothed during energy healing sessions and typically find the experience to be extremely relaxing.

Sound Healing

Sound Therapy is an alternative healing modality which utilizes the vibrational aspects of sound and music in the healing of the subtle energy body. It can be performed alone or in conjunction with guided meditation, aromatherapy, massage, reiki or acupuncture.

Drums, singing bowls, bells, gongs and the human voice are commonly used to move subtle energies in the body. Tuning forks are the most contemporary tool used in sound healing sessions today. These tools allow for direct application onto acupressure points for the relief of specific pains or muscular tensions.

Sound therapy is an effective adjunct in the healing of anxiety, depression, insomnia, musculoskeletal pain and tinnitus to name a few. It should not be viewed as treatment, and serious medical conditions should be referred to a primary care physician.

Oneida Holistic Health Center hosts regular group Sound Bath Meditation events.  Please refer to our “Register for a Class” page on the Main Menu to sign up for this truly unique healing experience.
