Through gentle touch, the busy mind quiets and the body drops down into a deep state of healing.

Philips received his degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Five Branches University. He is also a certified Yoga Teacher.  He has decades of experience with meditation (training as a monk at Tassajara and Green Gulch Farm), and with Qi Gong, an energy art with which he healed himself from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He specializes in Pain Relief and recovery from Depression, Insomnia, Anxiety, Chronic Fatigue and other Chronic Illnesses.

Feather and Bone Acupuncture Herbs Wellness

Julia Urcis LAc.
Contact Info:530-559-5928
Pricing: $120 initial, $80 follow up

I offer a safe space for people to experience a healing session within the body when acupuncture needles are combined with cultivated healing energy. I tune into the body by feeling the radial pulse of each arm, from which I get a sense of the internal workings of the body. I utilize the ancient practices of the forerunners of Asian meridian medicine, as well as my intuitive sense. I usually spend some time manually palpating the channels on the feet, arms and neck before applying needles, supporting the body for deep relaxation and subsequent restoration. Sometimes I will use other therapies like moxabustion, cupping or gua sha, depending on the nature of the issue. Usually we will come up with a few supportive habits or dietary changes to support healing between sessions.

Julia is a licensed acupuncturist, interdisciplinary herbalist, wilderness guide, and ordained priestess with the Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute. She/her/they/them cultivates life with intention and attention towards life energy, loving presence, freedom from trauma, self compassion and restorative justice.

Altar of Creation Healing Practice

Maia Grenell
By Appointment: Cell: 530.913.4362 / Email: midlinebreath@gmail.com
Student Practitioner Pricing: $50 per session (sessions generally last 45-60m)

Many people who have experienced physical or emotional shock or trauma have the experience of trying everything, but still not being able to heal.  It was no different for me. I tried so hard, so many different techniques and therapies, but found myself time after time cycling back again to ground zero.  There is no doubt that other treatments were helpful, but it was the Altar of Creation bodywork technique that initiated CHANGE – healing something so deep and fundamental, from a place that preceded all other therapies.

The Altar of Creation  is a SYSTEM for solving clinical problems that prevent you from healing.  It does not endeavor to chase symptoms around the body, or to fix things. The practice of AOC, founded by Dr. Steven Weiss, DO, is woven together threads of Embryology, Sacred Geometry, Structural and Mechanical Engineering, Troubleshooting and Problem-Solving Systems Analysis, Principles of Osteopathy, Energy Medicine, Spiritual Law, Martial Arts, and Zuni and Tibetan healing traditions.

My journey began as a client of AOC, while raising my two daughters and working as an elementary school teacher.   In 2017, I became a student practitioner and will graduate from the program in 2022/23.   Perhaps the most profound  aspect of AOC, is my training to participate and observe in the healing space,  without the influence of my personal energy or mental projections. I welcome children and adults, the healing space, and the vision of perfect health.

Diamond Ray Healing

By Appointment: | 818.277.6612 |
Pricing: 60 min energy healing and intuitive reading: $120
25 min Energy Tune-Up and Cord Cutting $60
Also offer: Space/ Home Clearing

It is through multi-dimensional life healing that one can peacefully integrate shadows into the light to illuminate the path forward.  Sessions can include life purpose discovery, chakra balancing, multidimensional life reading, past life integration and auric harmonizing. Sessions consist of light touch from head to feet and working with the subtle body while you relax into a theta brain wave state. An intuitive reading follows the healing with any insights into past lives, soul contracts, and any other translations from love and light of source energy.  I call on your eternal presence to illuminate the remembrance of your own healing by way of the high vibrational light of the Diamond Ray.

As a highly sensitive empath, I continue to navigate the waters of my own healing and uncovering of the intuitive gifts brought in from many incarnations.  In childhood, physical manifestations of fear around death, sexual trauma and psychic attacks resulted in multiple painful autoimmune diagnoses.  After years of trying multiple conventional and alternative healing therapies with minimal results and living a life that didn’t feel in alignment, I longed to delve deeper into my purpose and set off on the path of spiritual seeker. Through the process of past life trauma release, ancestral journeywork, chakra clearing and hundreds of hours of energy healing practitioner training, I have stepped into the role as an intuitive channel to share light with others.  I am honored to guide you through the same process of self discovery.

Enneagram of Personality and Vedic Astrology Services

Indra Rinzler offers Sacred Geometry Maps

The goal of Indra’s Life Reading is to offer insight that enables the client to progress in their conscious awakening. Using both Vedic astrology and the Enneagram of Personality we can transcend beyond personal story and see through our conditioning. Then we begin to understand and live-in true nature. We want to live beyond the borders we make for ourselves. We want to let go of attitudes that don’t serve us and that aren’t really true anyway. The reading will provide tools for living in freedom from the challenges of life. When we see our life as a whole, we feel the connection to all existence. The readings provide answers to the deepest of questions.

Vedic Astrology is based on ancient observable science. Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the alignment of planets at our birth can help us to overcome the challenges we face.

 The Enneagram of Personality shows us which one of the 9 personality stories we have at our core, stories that help us to navigate our life and can reveal our triggers. This is a powerful and unique modality that is mostly taught in the West.

The Wheel of Totality helps us to gain awareness on blind spots and areas of ignorance. This reading shares which awareness we lack.

Indra Rinzler focuses on helping people to wake to who they really are–to live beyond one’s stories and suffering. He uses Vedic Astrology and the Enneagram of Personality as maps to guide our way on the Path. Indra has been a student and sharer of astrology and on the spiritual path for 50 years. In 1999 he was introduced to the Enneagram of Personality and shares it with clients and in workshops both here and overseas in India and Thailand.

Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and hands on treatment based on the inter-relationship between the structures of the body and the way in which the body functions. Through palpation, the aim of treatment is to integrate anatomy and physiology in order for the body to function in a cohesive manner.

Having always a fascination with the human body and its potential, Erin has a background in classical ballet, yoga, and bodywork.
