Pat Babin
“Jin Shin Do” means “The Way of the Compassionate Spirit.” Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® uses gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal Body Focusing techniques, to help release “armoring” or chronic tension, balance the “Qi” or energy, and improve vitality. This clothes-on method helps relieve stress- and trauma- related problems. Originated by psychotherapist Iona Marsaa Teeguarden, JSD promotes a pleasant trancelike state, in which one can relax and move out of the head and into the body, accessing feelings and inner wisdom.

Nima Mahallati
Inner Sanctuary Chiropractic  approaches the body through combining gentle chiropractic spinal adjustment and intuitive energy healing work. The goal is to empower your body to re-connect with your own innate healing ability, and to help liberate you so you can continuously express new levels of life, wellness and potential.

Donnie Bell
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

Branden Thorne
Licensed massage therapist. Branden is also a Capoeira Instructor and may be reached at brandenthorne@gmail.com or (913)-209-5865

Sylvester Hodge
A Reiki session involves the use of hands without touching as the primary deliverer of life energy or Ki. The energy is delivered to the body’s energy centers or chakras. A person receiving Reiki is fully clothed and invited to relax. As blockages and releasing are occurring, individuals may experience insights to issues in their lives. Being open to the energies of Reiki is a life changing event and can lead to more understanding of the true self.

Stefanie Butler – Atlanta Sound Healing
Stefanie uses Tibetan Singing Bowls and voice to create a healing space for her clients. Everything is vibrational and when we are “out of tune”, the bowls can assist us in returning to balance, shifting energetic blocks and balancing our chakras. The bowls have the ability to put us into alpha or theta brainwave states that let us access a quiet, peaceful state of mind which has a powerful healing effect on our bodies, mind and spirit. Connect with Stefanie at atlantasoundhealing.com and Atlanta Sound Healing on Facebook.
