Sean West ~ Manual Release Therapy (similar to shiatsu massage)
Sean West has over 20 years of experience in bodywork and the healing arts, and is continuously learning and refining his craft. He began training in Korean Acupressure more than twenty years ago and since then he has been exposed to many techniques including a 5 year training in Shiatsu with first generation Takeda student Sigrid Fronius. He developed and currently practices his own technique called Manual Release Therapy. Manual Release Therapy is a technique that goes deep to clear base-level tension throughout the whole body. It is designed to release physical and emotional trauma quickly, and usually clients notice a difference after the first session. This technique is excellent for almost any condition: it can stop migraines, sciatica, anxiety, chronic pain and many other conditions permanently. It is effective with all trauma, including PTSD conditions. This massage technique also stimulates the lymphatic system, the energetic system and all the subtle bodies. The therapy can be soft and relaxing with no pain, or more intense as deeper work is needed. Sean has been working in the Sacred Valley for many years now and is well known for his high-quality work and strong ethic.
Meredith Shippam ~ Energy Medicine
During my sessions I use my hands and my voice to lift denser energies and weave in higher frequencies, as well as other tools such as crystals, feathers, medicine drums, sacred herbs and tibetan singing bowls. I use ritual to invoke only the highest realms of healing spirits and to create a safe and sacred container. The purpose of the ritual is to bring you into a surrendered and receptive space so that you may enter into a trance state. From there, your journey depends on what you need to experience. You may go into an intense catharsis and have a deep emotional release. You may see lights, colors, guiding forces or have visions. You may go into a place of complete silence, stillness and peace and feel like you were in a magical healing sleep – or that you went “home” to rest. Some receive direct messages and insights from their guiding forces or from deep within themselves. The intention is always held for your highest good and deepest healing to unfold – in whatever way will be the most appropriate and helpful for you now. I see myself as the midwife of this process and it is truly a profound and joyful honor.
