Meditation is a great way to give yourself a break during the day and allow your whole body to relax. Meditation can be challenging to practice on your own so I offer one-on-one sessions where you will receive guidance on breathing techniques to reduce stress and tension, then enjoy a guided imagery meditation to further relax you in both mind and body. Many feel more calm yet energized after a guided imagery session.
Guided imagery is a form of meditation that helps reduce physical tension and stress and may reduce feelings of worry and aid in more restful sleep.
Each session is tailored to your individual needs and wellness goals. Clients have benefited from meditation in:

Stress and anxiety can often interfere with making big or even small changes in our lives. It may impact our ability to improve our health, start a new career, move deeper in our relationships or successfully achieve our dreams.
Do you ever wish you had a way to reduce your ongoing stress or anxiety so you can move forward in life? Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a powerful self-care tool which helps reduce the emotional intensity of stressful experiences. The aim of EFT is to desensitize emotional issues through tapping a sequence of acupressure points on the body while thinking about a specific problem, or negative thought, worry, etc. EFT can have fast acting results for emotional improvement. The technique has been shown to improve issues such as grief, anger, pain, allergies, anxiety and much more. For more examples on EFT, including videos showing the technique, visit: www.eftuniverse.com.
Contact Lori to set up an in-person or virtual EFT session.
