Are you curious about facial rejuvenation acupuncture and how it can benefit your skin and health? Join Ari Odamaki, nationally board certified acupuncturist, for an afternoon of relaxation with facial rejuvenation acupuncture and gua sha massage in a small group setting. Addressing the body's constitution and underlying causes, as well as the surface signs of aging appearing on the face, hair-thin needles are gently inserted in specific points on the face and body to improve circulation and stimulate the production of collagen. This can reduce wrinkles, age spots, and acne and improve facial muscle and skin tone. Facial gua sha massage with jade or rose quartz is incorporated to address certain areas of the face and neck prone to wrinkles, sagginess, puffiness and muscle tension.

Muscle Testing Workshop

Location: Dragonfly Pilates Studio, 5518 Walnut Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15232
Cost: $75 ($60 early discount as well as Dragonfly member discount)

This fun and educational workshop will teach you the basic art of muscle testing.  By using a variety of methods, we explore how this technique is used to trace energy imbalances within the body.   

What is muscle testing:  Based on the concept of internal energy fundamental to traditional Chinese medicine, muscle testing is a noninvasive way of evaluating the body’s imbalances and assessing its needs. It involves testing the body’s responses when applying slight pressure to a large muscle, to provide information on energy blockages, the functioning of the organs, nutritional deficiencies, and food sensitivities, among other things. It can also be used to test the body’s responses to herbs and other remedies.

NON-LINEAR MOVEMENT METHOD®

Presented by Elizabeth Mendel
Date: Saturday, February 22, 12:00-2:00pm
Location: Aspinwall studio, 209 Commercial Avenue, Aspinwall, PA 15215
Cost: $25

 The Non-Linear Movement Method is for You if YOU ARE READY to:

  •     Let go of trauma & baggage from the past.
  •     Release chronic pain, tension, & fibromyalgia symptoms.
  •     Overcome self-doubt & increase your feeling of self-worth.
  •     Calm anxious thoughts & lift depressive feelings.
  •     Feel more love & create healthy relationships.
  •     Move forward & manifest the life you want!

The Non-Linear Movement Method® combines a science backed somatic technique with the powerful energy of a 2000 year unbroken Kashmiri tantric lineage. It was created by Dr. Michaela Boehm, who trained, transmitted, and certified me in this safe and effective way to: 

  •       Smooth out the nervous system: The demands of modern life create stress and tension in the body and an overactive mind. The NLM Method encourages an identifying and unwinding of the patterns of contraction and through gentle, non-force movements relieves the bodily tension and underlying mental loops. The result is a systematic, self-guided unburdening of the nervous system.
  •       Process and identify emotions: As the body unwinds and the mind relaxes its pressured pace, the emotions associated with these patterns become apparent. You can allow emotions to simply rise and release.
  •       Release trauma patterns into flow: One of the results of traumatic experience (fresh and old alike) is “freeze”, a state in which body, mind and emotions are stuck in a state of numbness. Often “freeze” is falsely perceived as a feeling of “calm/nothing”, which results in an inability to release the experience and ease the bodily patterns. The NLM facilitates a continued movement, which gently opens the freeze pattern and allows for recognition and release of the underlying bodily and emotional patterns. Unite mind and body in intimacy with physical sensation Through continued engagement with the release of contraction and facilitation of emotional awareness the engrained patterns become apparent and less pronounced. Over time physical sensation can be engaged with and the acceptance and tolerance of all sensation increases. Intimacy with whatever is present is possible.
  •       Create high bodily responsiveness: NLMM educates the body how to release and process contractions, stress and emotional tension. The body becomes highly attuned to all sensations and can note, react or release fluidly and without having to attend to traumatic or suppressed backlog. Opens access to bodily wisdom by putting emphasis on movement and circumventing the analytical mind and loops of tense thinking the natural intelligence of our bodies is accessed. Through gentle guidance the mechanisms of “freeze” and refusal to feel are being loosened and bodily wisdom can create the necessary actions and releases.
  •       Awaken sexual energy and sensual sensation: As tension, contraction, and emotion are being released the body becomes sensitized and we are able to feel deeper. One of the marked results of this sensitization is an ability to feel increased pleasure and well being. Participants report an increased ability to connect through their body, both with themselves and others. 

Non-Linear Movement® is facilitated on a mat or blanket with your eyes closed; no-one can see you doing it. Participants dress similar to a Yoga or Dance Class, in comfortable, non-restrictive clothing. Please bring your own mat, blanket, journal, and pen. Elizabeth guides the class and curates the music by responding to the groups energetic needs, so every class is a unique healing experience. Class is never recorded. You must attend to learn NLMM.
