Here at At zen: Body + Mind, holistic healing, we believe in the body’s natural ability to heal itself. We offer a handful of highly specialized and complementary, non-Western approaches to encourage that healing through gentle movement, self-inquiry and a connection within.
We believe that all parts of the body, mind and spirit are connected and integral in healing from head to toe.
When you find true and lasting relief from pain, tension, stress and dis-ease in your body, you live in vitality, health and well-being.

Prenatal Yoga offered at Zen: Body + Mind is unlike any prenatal yoga class out there. It is a unique blend of gentle and restorative yoga, breath work, birth affirmations and appropriate visualizations for each trimester.

Much like with her therapeutic sessions, you can always expect full attention on your specific needs during your unique experience of pregnancy. Cyndi has her certification for prenatal yoga from the prestigious Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and trained while she was six months pregnant.

Learn to trust your body, boost confidence, connect to your inner wisdom and baby through relaxation, compassion and ease. To learn more about prenatal yoga’s benefits and to book a session, contact Cyndi Roberts:
Reiki is a gentle, hands-on healing art of Japanese origin that reconnects you with your ability to heal yourself. It helps to reduce stress, relieve pain, balance emotions and facilitate personal healing.
Reiki is based on the understanding that all conditions of imbalance are rooted in the human energy field, and it is these underlying energetic patterns that must be addressed and resolved in order to create wellness.
You will begin your session by talking with Lexi, so she understands your needs and goals for the session. You will lay comfortably, fully clothed, on a massage table and receive the healing benefits of reiki energy.

A whole body, whole system approach which recognizes that the body is an integrated unit. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts and the slightest disturbance can cascade into a debilitating problem. Each case and each day is treated with care and genuine curiosity, listening to the body to see where it is struggling the most and where it needs the support to find its way back to balance, to kickstart its natural self-regulatory mechanisms.
No system is forgotten—muscular, skeletal, neural, vascular, visceral, fascial.
This complete, wide angled view of each patient—every time they walk through the door—allows the larger picture to spring forward and uproot the causes of symptoms. This process ultimately leads patients to a more whole, happy, involved and active life.

Access Consciousness Bars (c), is referred to as getting your bars run. It is a gentle pressure applied by the fingers to various parts of the head primarily. Each pressure point relates to a feeling or consciousness center such as joy, sorrow, creativity, body, form and structure – just to name a few. By gently pressing on each of these points for a time it helps do a couple of things. First, it helps release things you are holding onto that do not serve you and that limit your consciousness. Second, it helps open you to the greater possibilities in the universe by expanding your consciousness.
The process takes about an hour to complete, sometimes more. While there are over 40 points that can be applied, the practitioner uses some intuition in knowing when to stay longer at different points or when one may not be or primary importance at that session. This process opens one up to incredible healing powers lying within the consciousness and the process itself is relaxing and often transformative.
What to Expect When Getting Your Bars Run
In most cases, bars are run while you are lying down on your back unless for some reason a different position is warranted. It is not a massage and you leave your clothes on other than your shoes. You should dress casually, for comfort. You should feel comfortable and not be concerned about moving, asking for a blanket if you get cold, etc. Most people drift in and out of deep relaxation and sleep and that is perfectly fine. The process will work even if you are not immediately awake and aware of it.
No music is played while getting bars run as this interferes with the process and the opening of consciousness. You can feel free to talk or ask questions, this is your session! But most people prefer to settle into the relaxation and experience the process without talking although many like to share their experiences and that is perfectly fine and, in fact, wonderful. When the session is over you may feel very relaxed or very energized, depending upon what happened in your consciousness during that session. The most vital part is being comfortable and open to releasing what does not serve you and allowing in new and joyous experiences.
