Ann Schachinger, Certified Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, Reflexology, Belavi Facelift Massage, Manual Lymph TherapyNCBTMB

Ann Schachinger, facilitator of Anam Cara Wellness, LCMT, Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Reflexologist, Belavi Facelift Massage Specialist, and manual Lymph Therapist has developed her own “signature” massage session. Ann has given many treatments combining massage with Reiki to enhance her client's release of physical and emotional stress. As a massage therapist, her rhythmic technique has been highly praised by clients and fellow massage therapists for its effectiveness in opening energy channels and inducing deep relaxation while experiencing therapeutic massage.

Ann also specializes in deep tissue massage and trigger point release of the shoulders, back and neck, as well as manual lymph drainage therapy. Stress, sitting in traffic, weight lifting, repetitive movements and fibromyalgia are all contributors of tight muscles and active trigger points in the shoulders and neck area.

Using these techniques can assist in releasing the restrictions in the muscles that cause pain and stiffness. It is of the highest importance to Ann that her client's receive a personalized, caring and healing session.

REIKI

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a system of Enlightenment and a Hands on Healing art developed in the early 1900's by Mikao Usui in Japan. It is an art that is passed from Master to student. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words - Rei and Ki, meaning Universal Life Force Energy. The term "Reiki" is used to describe both the energy and the Usui system of using it.

A standard treatment includes placing the hands on various areas of the body, such as the head, shoulders, stomach, knees and feet. People's experiences vary during a Reiki session; however, most people feel the energy as heat. They may feel tingling, vibrating or waves of energy from the hands of the practitioner.

As the Reiki energy begins to release blocks caused by tension, anxiety, fear, or other negative thoughts and feelings, some people drift off to sleep or enter into a light dreamlike state. Some see colors, report spiritual experiences and mystical visions.
At the end of the treatment, one feels relaxed and refreshed with a positive, more balanced outlook.


Reiki is excellent for assisting in the healing of any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives wonderful results.

Please Call (571) 236-8096 or email Annie@AnamCaraWellness.com to set up a Reiki appointment with one of our practitioners

 

CHAKRA BALANCING WITH CRYSTAL BOWL SOUND THERAPY:

Chakra Balancing is a procedure that increases the healthy flow of energy through the chakras and the entire energy field.  A balanced flow of energy through the aura creates greater physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.  Childhood traumas, limited belief systems, bad habits, cultural conditioning, physical, and emotional injuries can contribute to chakra blockage.  Life is full of challenges and for each challenge there is a coping strategy.

In a Chakra Balancing session, Marty will:

  • Begin with a relaxation meditation and aromatherapy.
  • Individually scan and evaluate each chakra for balance and blockages. 
  • Make energetic adjustments where necessary using an Etheric Weaver, crystals, crystal grids, and energy work.
  • Clear and smooth your aura by incorporating crystal bowl sound therapy to "calibrate" the chakras, adding vibrational alignment to your session

A session typically lasts an hour.  You will leave renewed, energized, refreshed, and relaxed.  If you are feeling ungrounded or light-headed, having trouble concentrating or communicating, feeling unusually hyper or fatigued, your chakras may be out of balance.  A Chakra Balancing session combined with Reiki can:

  • Raise your energy levels.  
  • Relieve the effects of stress. 
  • Improve coping skills
  • Calm anxiety, and much more.

To make an appointment for Chakra Balancing with Marty, please call (703) 608-1030 or email her at marty@dreamworkguide.com.


DREAM INTERPRETATION

As the "magic mirror that does not lie," DREAMS are the reflection of our true selves.
They are a kaleidoscope of thoughts and emotions.  Dreams can amuse, amaze, awe, confuse, and frighten us.  Your dreams help you: Deal with anger, change & loss; Make better decisions; Address unresolved issues; Strengthen your intuition; Be more creative and much more.

To find out more about the power of your dreams go to www.dreamworkguide.com.

“The only time the Universe has our undivided attention is when we are asleep”.

Join a Dream Group: In a group setting, we hear the perspectives of other members as a dream is shared, unraveling confusion, revealing insights, or resulting in an "Aha!" moment we most likely would not have had on our own.  Meeting content is strictly confidential.

WORKSHOPS:  These fun and informative workshops will show you how dreams work - how they bubble up from the unconscious mind to guide and help you live more fully.  The workshops will give you the basic tools you need to understand the symbolic language your dreams “speak.”

Marty Gegner – Intuitive Tarot Readings
Like dreams, a Tarot session can stir your innermost being, your greatest source of self-empowerment.  A Tarot Reading can help give you a fresh perspective on your life by guiding you through difficult emotions and clouded thoughts.  It can provide a reflection of your past, illustrate your present, and offer possibilities for the future.

Attend a Tarot Workshop and learn to use the TAROT effectively!

ENERGY RESTRUCTURE

This modality combines focused breathing with light touch and healing mantras to create positive energy shifts in the emotional, mental, and physical body. The result is release of pain, anxiety, and emotional distress. Energy Restructure works within the chakra system, opening the gates to new, deeper levels of love, joy, freedom, health, abundance, and peace. The client remains clothed. Session lasts 60-75 minutes.

For an Energy Restructure appointment, please contact Marybeth Spain by phone: 703-298-2692 (cell) or by e-mail at marybeth@lotusrosehealing.com.

HYPNOTHERAPY AND REGRESSION THERAPY / PAST-LIFE REGRESSION

Hypnotherapy and Regression Therapy are forms of energy work, in that they work with subconscious mental or emotional energy patterns or vibrations. Through deep physical and mental relaxation, the conscious mind becomes an observer as you access the light of your higher self. Your deep inner healer guides you in discovering and releasing the subconscious causes of underlying patterns or limitations that have been causing adverse circumstances in your life. Guided imagery and positive suggestion help you clear the inappropriate patterns (or energy blocks) that have been hampering your life. In the case of Regression Therapy, the subconscious energy blocks have resulted from one or more traumatic events in the past, which are brought forward and released during the session.


Clients experience a deep sense of release, freedom, joy, insight, and empowerment. Hypnotherapy sessions usually last between two and three hours, with the length of time depending on the nature and depth of the problem. Regression sessions last about 3 hours. Tapes are provided for all hypnosis sessions.

Self-hypnosis instruction is available for pain control, reinforcing desired behaviors, stress management, and as a preparation for surgery.

For a hypnotherapy appointment, please contact Marybeth Spain by phone: 703-298-2692 (cell) or by e-mail at marybeth@lotusrosehealing.com.

* As with any alternative-healing modality, all services are intended to complement rather than to replace necessary medical care.

CUSTOMER COMMENTARY

“I've been going to Anam Cara for years and would not think about going anywhere else! Annie and her team are awesome! Everyone is very professional and they really care about you! Your session is customized to how you are feeling that day. If you haven't tried reflexology or Reiki, I'l highly recommend it that! I have arthritis in my knees and after my session, I feel like I'm 20 again. The massages are amazing too!
I'd HIGHLY recommend going here! :)” --Tracy, Februsry 14, 2011

“Do you want to take a trip to a pleasant, far away place and never leave Vienna? Annie's abilities as a holistic body therapist will cause you to leave this place behind and find yourself on a tropical island, a library, or whatever place you feel safe, relaxed and refreshed. I cannot adequately utilize words to convey the healing and rejuvenation you will experience during a session with Annie. You WILL return over and over again to Annie for a refreshing and relaxing therapeutic session.” --J. Kell, January 2008

“My experience at Anam Cara was amazing. I honestly left feeling rejuvenated – like I was on Cloud 9! I look forward to more Reiki and reflexology treatments. I have also had some great results from the Forever Living products that were recommended to me. Thank you!” --J. Briggs

“The lyrical precision of Annie's integrated massage felt as though my body was tuned up at the deepest cellular level." --L. Bergman

“When Annie gave me a massage with Reiki, I was so relaxed afterwards that I felt like a completely renewed person. I also felt the warmth of energy swirling throughout my body. She is an amazing person as well as practitioner." --M. Payne

“I highly recommend Anam Cara Wellness Services to anyone who wants to spend some time being pampered in a relaxed, elegant atmosphere.

"At the age of 29, I was suffering with chronic pain and fatigue. There were days it was a chore to get dressed or take a shower. Polarity treatment saved my life. I was taking a regiment of drugs but I wasn't getting better. It wasn't until I began Polarity treatment that I began to reclaim my life and get my body back. Those sessions were the highlight of my week and nothing would prevent me from making my appointment. During the sessions, I was able to escape to a place without pain and dream of a life where I no longer winced when I put my shoes on. My once broken body is fully healed and I attribute my recovery to Maggie's love and the Polarity treatment. I can't say enough wonderful things about this therapy!"
-- Nikki P. February, 2007
