March 14, 2017 -- Ryan Sullivan -- Traditional Thai Massage
Thai Massage is an ancient system that uses assisted stretching in a graceful manner reminiscent of Hatha Yoga.
The practitioner also uses hand and foot pressure along lines similar to acupressure meridians.
This sophisticated and effective therapy occurs upon a thick, comfortable mat at floor level rather than on a massage table.
However, the techniques of Thai Massage can easily be adapted for use on a massage table.
Because of Thai Massages elegant usage of the body, practitioners hands do not get sore, their backs are not hunched over,
and they feel rejuvenated along with the recipient.
Ryan Sullivan will demonstrate treatment of the entire body. He will also demonstrate how to move with efficiency and power.
Ryan is available for appointments. He can be reached at (850) 545-3949 and has more information on his website:

Higher Level Healing
April 11, 2017 -- Amy McDowell -- Eden Energy Medicine for Empowering the Bodys Natural Healer
Amy is a faculty member for Donna Eden at her Eden Energy Medicine Certification Program (a two- to four-year healing school in Arizona
andEngland). She is an Advanced Practitioner in Eden EM and offers classes as well as private sessions to help individuals reconnect
with energetic health and flow.
At the April 11presentation, we will explore simple movements to support balance and flow in the bodys energies. With a focus
on Donna Edens Daily Energy Routine and an emphasis on grounding as a foundational practice; we can tap, stretch, and connect
areas of the body to restore flow and build healthy energy habits. If the majority of the group is familiar with the Daily Routine,
we can expand into other exercises to support energetic health.
This work is effective as an independent healing system and/or can be paired with any other modality as a resource for self-care,
for clients at home between sessions, and for loved ones who are in need of support. It is a brilliant resource to empower people
to build awareness and flow in their own energies by tapping into the bodys natural desire to heal.
May 9, 2017 -- Return of the Soul to Medicine, by Bonnie McLean O.M.D., A.P., M.A., B.S.
Dr. McLean will be sharing her 50-year-long search for the soul in medicine. As a child of a physician/surgeon and
nurse then an RN herself, she spent the first half of her life immersed in Western Medicine. The past 30-plus years
have been spent studying and practicing Natural Medicine, mostly under the umbrella of Chinese Medicine, Hypnosis,
and Guided Imagery. She will discuss how she currently practices what she calls Integrative Holistic Medicine in
which she works with body, mind, and spirit incorporating energy and shamanic healing with the Natural Medicine
practices. She believes she is part of a collective movement that is increasingly combining healing with medicine
and bringing back the soul to our medicine in America.
