Waniya (wah-NEE-yah): The breath of life; that which makes a being live.
The breath is the link between the body, mind, and spirit. The first breath signals our birth and the last breath signals the end of life on earth. For every moment in between, it is present, waiting for us to remember. The heart of Waniya Healing is to return to the beginning. When seeking to restore health, we must address the human being, not the human body alone. Connecting to our breath again is the first step in our journey to health. . . and to remembering who we are.
At Waniya Healing, we use the modalities of Massage Therapy and Yoga to partner with you in this incredible journey.
Our massage styles will help with general relaxation or the reduction of stress; unwinding of deep tension; rehabilitation of an injured area; healing after a surgical procedure; or improvement for symptoms in conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Sciatica, Frozen Shoulder, and much more.
Yoga is a practice that brings your awareness to your breath, mind, and body. We move with alignment and intention, learning to remember to breathe and to use our bodies in a way that is ergonomically effective. Gradually we increase strength, balance, flexibility, and clarity of mind.
We teach classes for parents to enhance bonding with their babies and children, building a culture of healthy touch in a family. We teach classes for caregivers to add additional healing to the lives of their loved ones experiencing chronic conditions. We also teach caregivers how to care for themselves so that burnout can be avoided.
