A New Spring Special!!!!
Raindrop Therapy Treatment

The Raindrop Technique is a combination of reflexology, aromatherapy, massage techniques and essential oils applied to the spine and on the feet.

Just in time for Spring! Raindrop Therapy has been known to increase the immune system, relieve back pain and create balance and harmony in the body- physically, mentally and emotionally. Raindrop therapy uses the essence of therapeutic grade essential oils along the spine where it is believed that viruses and bacteria lie dormant util the immune system weakens. The oils create an environment that is not hospitable to these ” foreign” agents, and causes then to be eliminated naturally.

Raindrop therapy is a very gentle therapy and offers you the opportunity to completely relax while improving your overall well being on all levels.

This specialty technique will be offered with aromatherapist Kate Robb please call directly to arrange your appointment. (559) 908-3324

Ta-dah! a Daffodil

Every year I text my mother a photo of my first sighting of her favorite flower – the daffodil. This year I caught a glimpse one week before Mr. Groundhog was even headed to his doorway. It might not seem such a big deal to those of us in California, but to someone like my mom who lives in the far northern reaches of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula it’s a tantalizing treat, a movie-trailer for May’s coming attractions in her own back yard.

There’s something spontaneous and magical about daffodils as they stand in simple yet elegant confidence that reminds me of our Solar Plexus chakra. Sitting right there at the base of our ribs, it’s the center of our self-confidence.  Like the sunny yellow daffodil, the Solar Plexus is our personal calling card, trumpeting self-assurance and willpower into the world. It calls out,

Move aside winter, I’ve got something to show you. Hear what I have to say!”

How many of us are able to stand comfortably in our body, radiating a surety and optimism that is our birthright? Do you feel it? Maybe responsibility, illness, grief, or worry have weighed you down and dimmed your splendor and you want to feel that buoyancy again.

Radiate your light.

If you feel like it’s time for a reset, we have all types of practitioners at Luminessence that are here to help.

Does your skin glow with confidence? Mary Farrior of Fresno Skin Care has recently added her talents to Luminessence.

Help your body radiate strength and health with one of the many massage therapies from the talented Javier Huerta, Elle Jacinto, Cathy Lizardo, or Page Peters.

Does it feel like your willpower is clouded by an old emotional pattern? Contact Diane Enderson, Cai King, or Kate Robb to begin to shift that stale energy and find your resilience.

Perhaps you want to take a deeper look at the connection of confidence and your soul’s purpose through an astrology reading with Alexandra, another new face at Luminessence.

Looking for insight? Check our calendar or Meetup app for scheduled classes on a variety of topics.

We have a service that will help you stand true and confident.

And in the meantime…

Here’s a yoga asana that will connect you to your Solar Plexus and Heart energy centers:

Tadasana

Stand with feet hip-width apart. Toes pointed forward and knees soft, not locked. Activate your feet by grounding your heels and lift your toes off the floor to wiggle them briefly. Now stand on your toes, lifting your heels off the ground. Next, with feet flat on the ground, roll your feet to the outside edges, then, bring your knees together as you roll to the inside edges of your feet.

With your feet activated and flat on the floor, imagine roots flowing down from the soles of your feet and pull light up those roots, through your feet and legs as you scrunch your shoulders towards your ears. As you drop your shoulders and roll them back your hands will naturally open to the front, lifting your heart and bringing your Solar Plexus forward into the present. “Ta-dah!sana here I am!” as my friend @yoga_sista likes to say.

Share your Ta-dah! with us in the comments.

Thanks for spending a moment with me looking at things from ground level,

Say “yes” to…

During a talk about gaining financial control of your life, I once heard author and financial advisor Suze Orman ask, “Are you saying ‘yes’ out of fear, or ‘no’ out of love?” Suddenly, for me, the chaotic drama of interpersonal relationships coalesced into a self-awareness of why I answered “yes” when I really, really heard and felt the “no” screaming throughout every part of me. Why wasn’t I saying “yes” to myself? Sure it made sense when I got angry, I had been used, or at least caught unawares, right? They should have known better than to take advantage of me like that!

No, I should have known better and over the years I have gotten better about defining myself and my needs. I continue to learn what makes for healthy personal boundaries and how best to maintain them. It’s a journey and it starts with saying “yes” to yourself.

Learn more about Personal Boundaries

Join me at Luminessence Saturday, October 5th from 10 am – 1 pm for Personal Boundaries: Identifying & Maintaining. We will use discussion and interactive techniques to learn to identify and maintain healthy physical, emotional, and energetic boundaries. Empower yourself!

Cost of class is $60. Register and secure your spot right here. Seats are limited!

Healthy boundaries protect your core beauty.

Hope to see you Saturday!

Blessings!

Intention

Hello August!

For those of you who haven’t met me yet, my name is Cai (rhymes with ‘day’) and I am a Reiki practitioner, Empowerment Coach, and mindfulness teacher here at Luminessence. Today I’m sharing a thought with you on intentions.

Afterwards, I invite you to visit my website Hummingbird Alchemy to find out more about Reiki and my healing journey (and… pssst… get a thank you gift when you subscribe to my email!)

Intention

Here’s a word we encounter often, especially as we delve more deeply into understanding ourselves and the world around us. We hear ‘be clear in your intention’ and ‘hold the intention for the highest good’ but how do we do that? Think positive, right?

There-in lies a bit of the confusion, I believe, when it comes to living a life with purpose and intention: We think too much! Our brains are pattern-seeking devices with a job of categorizing every nanosecond of our lives. Each category creates fat file folders that manufacture more sub-folders until we have a bulging file cabinet with drawers that don’t close and countless piles scattered across our thoughts.

Try this

So I’m suggesting you try something a little different the next time you set an intention and this goes back to an earlier etymology of the word intendere – to stretch out. Stretch out beyond just thinking and engage all your senses in the process. Spend a bit of quiet time and run the idea through each of your five physical senses. What does that intention look and sound like? How does it feel to the touch? There will be a unique taste and smell to that intention. Let it take full sensual shape in your imagination and let it stretch out into your life and take root. As it roots, so will the enthusiasm that will feed its growth. Try it!

Blessings,

Holy Fire Karuna Reiki Master & Empowerment Coach

Exciting New Additions at Luminessence

Hello All,

We are very excited to announce that we are now offering Amethyst ( FIR) Therapy Sessions as a stand alone treatment or as an add on to any of our healing services. Enjoy a 30 minute bio-therapy session in our private healing suite and experience the immediate benefits of this scientifically backed therapeutic treatment.

Book your session ahead of time for the low price of $20.00 or as an add on to any of our therapy session at the discounted price of $10.00. It is recommended that for maintaining optimal health the Amethyst far infrared bio-mat should be used up to three times a week for thirty minute sessions.

What are far infrared rays?

Far infrared rays are part of the electro-magnetic light spectrum and are close to the light frequency of natural sunlight.  However, far infrared does not contain any of sunlight’s harmful UV/UVB radiation. The beneficial properties of far infrared light have received particular attention from the scientific community in recent years, although the first research conducted on this part of the light spectrum was undertaken by NASA decades ago.  Today, health practitioners from a wide range of disciplines agree on the beneficial properties of far infrared technology.


How does amethyst quartz enhance ionic and far infrared ray therapy?

Amethyst’s healing properties have been acknowledged and celebrated for centuries by ancient scientists, healers and others.  Now, modern science has confirmed the highly conductive properties of this remarkable mineral.  Amethyst crystals offer the most consistent and powerful delivery of far infrared light waves, and ionic effects to the human body.

What specific conditions and symptoms can the BioMat treat?

Because the BioMat’s far infrared rays penetrate deeply into the body and promotes our natural state of health and balance, it can be used to treat a wide range of health issues.

US FDA’s Medical Device 510K indications for use:

  • Relaxation of muscles,
  • Increase of local circulation where applied

Temporary relief of:

  • Minor muscle pain
  • Minor joint pain and stiffness

Fire Moon in Aries

Hello All,

Welcome April and a beautiful start to Spring!

Lots of exciting changes are happening at Luminessence! We are very pleased to now be offering Meditative Yoga every Wednesday from 4:30-5:30 hosted by Lisa Williams of Perfect Balance Yoga. This class is a wonderful mid-week reset for the body, mind and spirit. The meditations Lisa incorporates into the class are profound and inspiring. You can RSVP for these weekly via our Meet-Up link on our web page. The class is $10.00 with a reservation or $15.00 for “day of” drop ins.

On Monday, April 8th Diane Enderson is holding a class for those wanting to learn more about working with their personal energy. These classes are always popular and Diane covers a range of topics regarding energy each month. The fee for this class is $20.00, no RSVP needed.

Thursday, April 11th at 5:30 we have class #3 in our Chakra Series which will focus on the Solar Plexus and Heart Chakras! Perfect timing with April’s energy influences! This series is taught by Karuna Reiki Master Cai King and you can RSVP via the Meet- Up link on our website, as space is limited.

**Coming soon** We will soon be offering Crystal Bowl Sound Healing sessions in our brand new Sound Treatment room!!! Sessions will be customized and unique with options such as crystal layouts and light therapy available as well. We are very excited about this new addition to our service menu!! More information to follow.

As far as the energetic influence for April 2019: We have a New Moon in the beginning of April, the energy of this Fire Moon is going to bring challenges around the dynamics of family, partnerships and our jobs.

One of the reasons these energy fluctuations are brewing is because we also have Venus conjunct Neptune, which calls to us as individuals to remember the importance of personal care. Aries rules the Solar Plexus and our natural instincts surrounding trust. The conjunction of Venus and Neptune calls forward the maintaining of healthy personal boundaries and sticking to them! Trusting yourself to know what is the greatest good for you and for your physical and mental health!

We also have another influence this month which is Mars in the constellation of Gemini, my personal sign. This meeting of energies is all about talking and networking, a call to share with others our passions and truths. This is a great time to allow yourself to have those difficult conversations that you might normally avoid. Remember, when you trust yourself and honor your true feelings, soulful growth can occur. Personal growth and expansion of consciousness is the theme for April. Go ahead and stand up for yourself and the things you have been waiting to say!

That all being said, I have included a video below on the dangers of 5G cell towers being introduced into our communities. EMF pollution and the damage it does to all living things is something that I am passionate about and hope to educate others in hopes that a unified voice might inspire change! I have also included a link to the site where you can sign a petition against the introduction of 5G on a global scale.

https://www.5gspaceappeal.org/the-appeal

If you would like to sign the petition and see additional information regarding 5G, PLEASE USE THE LINK ABOVE

Thank you so much for tuning in!

Remember, Let YOUR Light Shine : )

With Love,

Kate
