Integrative Massage

Originally based on the work of Wilhelm Reich, this style of bodywork was developed at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy over 20 years ago. To assist in the release of emotional issues trapped in the body, long fluid strokes are used to move energy from the head down and out through the hands and feet. This is combined with the use of deep breath-work to aid the process. It incorporates nurturing touch, massage, and reflexology in a loving, fun, one-on-one interaction. A study at the University of Miami showed that infants who received 15 minutes of massage a day gained weight 47% faster and demonstrated other physical and neurological benefits.

Iridology

Is the science of reading the iris (colored part of the eye). Accordingly, the iris maps the condition of the body, mind and emotions in a particularly comprehensive manner. It is a comprehensive study, and has been proven to be extremely accurate. There are several schools of thought on this subject, but are unified in the ability to enlighten everyone of their condition. There was a case, where the iris revealed that the subject showed signs of a malfunctioning liver. This person was brown eyed, and had dark brown hair, and within a relatively short time, after a liver cleanse with herbs, his eyes started to change color. They are now hazel, with a blue ring around the outside edge of each iris. It appears that the sludge produced by the ailing liver caused the pigmentation of the iris to change color.
