JoAnne Canosa

JoAnn CANOSA, RN,BSN is a Reiki practitioner/teacher and meditation instructor. I have been practicing Reiki since 2010, when I discovered its healing benefits after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a spiritual healing practice that works with the energy that is present in and around the physical body. A Reiki practitioner connects to and utilizes this energy to heal themselves and to facilitate the healing of others. Reiki balances energy on all levels of the body-physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Reiki energy encourages deep relaxation and supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki always brings you your highest good.

In 2012, I received the Master Reiki and Master Seichem initiations from the Tera-Mai branch of Reiki. I am a student of Frans Stiene www.ihreiki.com and have completed the Shoden, Okuden, and Shinpiden levels in the traditional Japanese form of Reiki called Usui Reiki Ryoho. I work part time as a Reiki practitioner for Caring Hospice Services as well as volunteer at the Domestic Violence Shelter offering Reiki to their employees.   I have been practicing meditation for the past seventeen years and have studied meditation with Dr. Susan Taylor at the Center for Meditation Science. www.drsusantaylor.com. I am a member of the American Holistic Nurses Association and a student of A Course in Miracles and The Science of Mind. Reiki has been a shifting force in my life and I am excited to start my private practice, Reiki from the Heart, at the Yoga Room.

1 hour Reiki session - $65
1 hour meditation instruction - $50

M Y O F A S C I A L   R E L E A S E is a whole-body, hands-on approach and treatment that focuses on the fascial system.  The Fascial System surrounds and infuses with every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel, organ, and cell of the body.  It also separates, supports, connects, and protects the body.  The therapist applies sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.  It is helpful when receiving this treatment you bring a pair of sport shorts and if your are a female sport shorts and sport bra or a reasonable like article of clothing.

"Something that has happened is incredibly important!  The QUANTUM SHIFT has occurred and will have a massive impact on you and healthcare that will be so vast it will be beyond your wildest imagination."  John F. Barnes, PT   www.myofascialrelease.com

Gentle and relaxing, Swedish massage is performed to increase blood circulation, thereby strengthening the immune system and channeling oxygen-laden blood to the overworked muscles that require it most.

A method of applying pressure to specific trigger points within the belly of the muscles and tendons.  This will enable the whole muscle to relax.

The universal principles of energy, attraction, repulsion and neutrality are used to balance energy currents running through the body and recharge the nervous system.

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that is safe, simple and powerful.  The word Reiki is also used to describe the actual energy that practitioners work with.  This energy is the fuel that drives humans and gives ultimate structure and purpose in life; it is the energy of everything.  
A Reiki treatment is one hour long and is useful for specific healing or general relaxation.  The treatments are individually tailored to the client's needs and condition.  The client remains fully clothed while the practitioner gently rests their hands on, or slightly off the body for a few minutes on specific areas of the body (head,torso, arms, and legs) allowing the energy to pass through into the client. One may have an experience of the energy moving and being cleared throughout the body.  Healing can take place on a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual level.  Reiki supports the body's natural ability to heal itself.  Reiki promotes deep relaxation and each treatment will work to realign, relax, and renew. Reiki is rooted in love and always brings you your highest good.  Explaining Reiki with words is often difficult.  The best way to understand Reiki is to experience it!
