Breathwork guides you through intentional breathing techniques that promote relaxation, release stress, and increase self-awareness. By using the power of breath, you can experience improved mental clarity, emotional balance, and a deep connection to your inner self. 

Chakra balancing will assess the energy flow within your chakras and identify any blockages or imbalances that may be impacting your well-being. You may experience benefits such as increased vitality, emotional stability, mental clarity, enhanced intuition, and a greater sense of overall well-being.

Reiki is a gentle energy healing practice that involves the channeling of universal life force energy. This can help balance and restore the flow of energy within your body, promoting relaxation, stress reduction, and overall well-being.

Sound healing uses therapeutic sounds, such as singing bowls, to create harmonious vibrations that resonate with your body and mind. These soothing sounds help release energetic blockages, reduce anxiety, and restore a sense of peace and balance within. 

Group therapy creates a supportive and nurturing space for collective healing and personal growth. Group therapy sessions offer a unique opportunity to connect with others who may be facing similar challenges, providing a sense of belonging, understanding, and shared experiences.

It is important to note that group therapy is not suitable for everyone, and individual services may be more appropriate in some situations. Dr. C will assess your needs and provide guidance on the most beneficial group for you.
