Joanne Lenz-Mandt, LMT
I am currently taking new massage clients. I give a 75-minute full-body massage, drawing from several modalities, including Swedish massage, Lomi Lomi, deep tissue, shiatsu, Tuina, Reiki, and sensory repatterning. The cost is $70. Please call or email if you have any questions or if you need to schedule.
Beloit Healing Center is offering a new modality, called Reiki Rocking. After a year when many people have been deprived of touch, it is accessible for more people, especially those who don’t want the traditional therapeutic massage.
Reiki Rocking was inspired by this article in the New York Times Magazine about how rocking has been shown to synchronize the brain and produce relaxing and anxiety-relieving feelings. As the author David Aloi puts it, “it’s a shortcut to Chill Town.”
I am trained in Sensory Repatterning (SR), a modality that includes rocking and stretching movements. With SR, the client wears clothing for yoga. Reiki Rocking came about because there are times of stillness and natural pauses in SR that lend themselves to the use of Reiki. Reiki is a form of energy healing that originated in Japan. Reiki means Universal Life Force energy. People often report a deeply relaxed feeling of well-being from a Reiki Session.
The Reiki Rocking session is around 75 minutes and is $50. Please mention this article for a 10% discount.
Both the practitioner and client will be required to wear a mask. I will invoice via email after scheduling to eliminate handling money and to simplify the in-person interaction.
