Thai Yoga Massage

This hands-on session is great for folks who love yoga, or have always wanted to try yoga. It’s like experiencing a yoga practice without the work of having to do it. It combines breath awareness, passive stretching and compression of the muscles, activating soft tissue response, energy (meridian) lines and fascial pathways in the body.

This hands-on session is great for folks who love yoga, or have always wanted to try yoga. It’s like experiencing a yoga practice without the work of having to do it. It combines breath awareness, passive stretching and compression of the muscles, activating soft tissue response, energy (meridian) lines and fascial pathways in the body. Clients wear loose, comfortable clothing to allow for easeful movement, and relax on a cushioned floor mat. This combination of movement and massage encourages a sense of wholeness, increased energy, flexibility and balance within the body.

Most extended health care plans offer coverage for Massage Therapy sessions in Ontario (this includes Thai Yoga Massage). Please check with your provider.


Somatic Self-Care Support

Our body sends us messages by giving us physical sensations. These sensations are clues to how we're holding tension, stress, and past & present experiences within our body. We chat about what patterns are showing up, and come up with strategies and activities that can help you, including breath sequences, movement practices, and other self-care techniques.

Our body sends us messages by giving us physical sensations. These sensations are clues to how we're holding tension, stress, and past & present experiences within our body. We chat about what patterns are showing up, and come up with strategies and activities that can help you, including breath sequences, movement practices, and other self-care techniques. Somatic awareness supports resilience and adaptability, and can be beneficial in helping release these tendencies of holding.

Some extended health care plans may offer coverage for Self-Care Support sessions under Massage Therapy. Please check with your provider.


Energy Healing

For those interested in a more fine-tuned experience, energy healing can be an in-person or distance-based experience. Energy knows no bounds - intention and vibration can go the distance. Deep presence and advanced consciousness practices, along with a variety of subtle energy techniques, aim to address physical, energetic and spiritual realms of healing.

For those interested in a more fine-tuned experience, energy healing can be an in-person or distance-based experience. Energy knows no bounds - intention and vibration can go the distance. Deep presence and advanced consciousness practices, along with a variety of subtle energy techniques, aim to address physical, energetic and spiritual realms of healing. Sound healing, biodynamic techniques, chakra balancing, and shamanic wisdom practices are often a part the session. Energywork can be a catalyst, that encourages the body's own wisdom to activate towards healing states. (A detailed report follows every distant healing session.)


Sound Healing

Sound can be a powerful tool to increase healing potential. Whether we’re experiencing stress and our nervous system needs soothing, or we’re finding our focus fuzzy and want support to centre ourselves, or our physical body is calling out for relaxation, or our spirit is calling out for ease … sound can be a beautiful support. Using highly vibrational instruments that generate beneficial wav... Read More

Sound can be a powerful tool to increase healing potential. Whether we’re experiencing stress and our nervous system needs soothing, or we’re finding our focus fuzzy and want support to centre ourselves, or our physical body is calling out for relaxation, or our spirit is calling out for ease … sound can be a beautiful support. Using highly vibrational instruments that generate beneficial wave patterns, sound healing or sound therapy is a well researched modality and has many applications. Relax into the frequency and vibration of a variety of instruments, chosen specifically with intention to support your wellness journey. (Available In-Person or Virtually)

Jean’s healing journey began in 2003 after being diagnosed with a brain and spinal cord tumor shortly after completing allopathic treatment for Breast Cancer. Her daily survival kit included a multitude of anti-depressants, pain killers, anti-anxiety pills, sleeping pills, medications to offset the recurrence of breast cancer, etc. Deeply committed to her own evolution, personal healing, and truth Jean began studying and applying many different alternative healing modalities in order to heal her body/mind/spirit. She also let go of all prescription medication. Thus began a fascinating journey where self-mastery, autonomy, rejuvenation, regeneration, and higher consciousness all become possible. Jean’s extensive tool kit includes and is not limited to Reiki Master, Shamanism, Universalis Modality, Neuro Linguistic Programming, WEL-SystemsTM Master Facilitator, Ottawa’s first Accredited Journey Practitioner, Cranial Sacral Therapy, etc.

Kristine Karpinski

Registered Massage Therapist, Energy & Sound Healing Practitioner, Somatic Movement Educator

Kris is skilled at noticing and tracking patterns in posture, movement, breath, tissue nature, fluid rhythms and perceptual states. Awareness is the key to encouraging change, releasing compensation and discovering a more comfortable way.

All sessions are framed in the context of Somatic Awareness; getting curious about the language of the body and noticing what patterns are apparent and desire attention.

Kris has been in full-time private practice and teaching for over 30 years. In that time, she has collectively trained in and taught various healing modalities, body centred therapies and movement methods. In her youth, she suffered multiple chemical sensitivities, which prompted an exploration into alternative health approaches. She found her way through, studying dance, drama and music and went on to study psychology and theatre in university. She has since merged these interests to develop a great passion for somatic, holistic and expressive approaches to well being. She holds master-level certifications in many methods of Bodywork, Yoga, Conscious Dance, Somatic Movement, Energy Healing, Doula Care, Natural Health, Sound Healing, Nature Therapies and Wisdom Traditions. She is a life-long, avid learner with a curious and joyful spirit!

One could say that Bette enjoys taking chances: while most people have one or two careers in life, she’s already had five to date — accounting, sales, applied research, volunteer services manager and owner of a Bowen therapy clinic. In 2006, Bette went on a spiritual quest, which led her to a mountaintop in Thailand with 60 other Canadians and a master for two weeks in 2006. “We were all expecting to find out what we would be doing next,” she remembers. “Nothing came, until two months after I returned. I was watching Dr. Marla Shapiro on television and she had a Bowen therapist on as her guest, and I thought, ‘this is what I want to do’.”

Bette opened Bowen Therapy Clinic in Ottawa in 2007 and operated for years, before moving to B.C. Bette is now back in the Ottawa area and is practicing here at Carp Ridge EcoWellness. She has her Advance Certification in Bowen Therapy. Bowen work involves stimulating receptors in the tendons, muscles and ligaments of the body. She helps patients of all ages suffering from chronic back pain, shoulder pain, sciatica and more. She especially enjoys working with young autistic children. “I find it beneficial,” she says. “I originally started working with children and I could see that they benefitted greatly in relaxing.”

Dr. Katherine Willow has been practicing since 1983 as a fourth-generation naturopathic doctor via her family in Europe. Her specialty is the integration of German New Medicine (GNM) into her practice. In this new paradigm one can connect biological shocks with conditions and determine whether a person’s symptoms are in the stress or healing phase of the shock.

Another favourite of Dr. Willow’s is old-style naturopathic medicine, which approaches disease with the simplicity of nature cure therapies: sun, air, water, earth and plants. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing complicated cases resolve as a person’s body and mind receive what they need to heal.

Dr. Willow enjoys helping people with:

Aging well and prevention of disease

Allergies

Cancer

Children’s conditions, especially ADHD

Fatigue

Fibromyalgia

Inflammatory conditions

Lyme disease

Weight loss or gain and detoxification

Women’s health

Dr. Willow graduated from National College (now University) of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon in 1983 and is registered with the Canadian College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).
