Mayan Healing Stone Massage
Mayan Stone Massage connects the paths of energy together in order to rebalance the physical body, emotional, mind and spirit as one. Mayan Stone Massage recenters the body. The stones are placed along certain points, and they draw out the various energies as guided and placed where stones are needed.
Spring Forest Qigong (pronounced chee gong)
Spring Forest Qigong (pronounced “chee gong”) is a simple, efficient, and effective method for helping you experience your optimal health, wellness, and happiness; helping you heal physical and emotional pain; and enhancing the quality of your life and the lives of others.
SFQ is comprised of four parts that all work together:

Qissage (pronounced Chee-sahzh)
At Gentle Winds and Hands we perform Qi-ssage which is a combination of traditional massage and qigong, a 5,000-year-old Chinese healing modality. Qigong means “to work with energy,” we at Gentle Winds and Hands help our clients balance their energy and remove blockages through the use of this combination therapy. Qi-ssage stimulates key energy points to affect the balance and flow of the body’s energy and facilitate healing.
Tuning forks, and oils are used to help you heal illness and pain in the body through the non-invasive “accutuning” method, which replaces accupuncture. In this method, we use tuning forks to bring your meridian points back into balance, and angelic oils to keep the chi from becoming blocked again at those points.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage uses smooth-surfaced river rocks that have been heated by water to over 100 degrees. The heat also accelerates the movement of blood and lymph, increasing circulation and toxic release.
Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person’s general health.

Sports massage focuses on muscles relevant to the event. For athletes who train continuously, the goal is to enhance endurance, lessen the chance of injury and shorten the time needed to recover from an event.
The term “Swedish Massage” refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying gentle pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.
Ear Candling is the holistic way of treating ear aches and other common issues related to the ear. It is best defined as the use of an ear candle which is a beeswax or paraffin wax coated cloth that is shaped into a conical cylinder about 10” to 15” in length with varying widths. Ear Candling is a therapeutic relaxation technique similar to accupressure, accupuncture, and aromatherapy.

How Often Should I Receive a Massage?
It is recommended that a massage once every 1-4 weeks is beneficial for good health. However, your goal in health maintenance will determine the frequency of a massage. Medical massage is performed in shorter sessions regularly. Athletes receive massages according to their workout schedule. Depending on your goal and needs, “the accumulative effect of massage is greater than the benefit of any one treatment session” (I believe Dr. Yates said it first). Long-term goals should be discussed with your therapist to establish a clear direction and protocol. It is noted that Bob Hope lived to be 100 and received a massage on a daily basis. Your therapist may recommend two to three times a week usually targeting a specific area. For people who have trouble falling asleep at night, feeling stressed or depressed, or suffer from a chronic condition, then once a week would be sufficient. For others, once a week works well to give them a feeling of complete balance.
