Dr. Chi will perform a guided Airnergy breathing consultation that specifically focuses on cellular energizing, rejuvenation and oxygenation. This award winning Airnergy remedy is recognized as the innovation of the last century (1912-2012) by Fitness Tribune. The principle is based on Nobel Winner Dr. Otto Warburg’s theory to activate oxygen through monochromatic light. It is particularly suited for all types of chronic illness, pain, stress and suffering that are caused by lacking energy at the cellular level, including cancer, diabetes, COPD, asthma, sleep disorders, burnout and athletic recovery. The Airnergy breathing is combined with yogic breathing guided by Dr. Chi and real-time biofeedback monitoring with Alfa dynamic analysis to evaluate the effects of this therapy.
Dr. Chi will perform a holistic energy healing with a particular focus on all chakras and meridians for a complete energetic transformation for your body and soul. Dr. Chi says, “This healing consultation is conducted through a combination of the chakras’ specific vibrational frequencies, acoustic nature sound healing and CHI connection with cosmic consciousness.” All illnesses or diseases can be traced back to blockage in the energy centers and channels at physical, emotional and spiritual levels. According to Dr. Chi, by applying harmonic creational sound frequencies directly to the body through hearing, vibration and the subconscious, this healing exercise will lead you to a complete transformation, detoxification and rejuvenation.

From this DMI consultation, you will obtain information about the performance of each of your 12 organ meridians understood in Traditional Chinese Medical Science (i.e., liver, gall bladder, lungs, large intestine, heart, stomach, etc.). By accessing specific points on the hands and feet with a DMI measuring device, a graphic report will be generated that can be used to educate you about which organ systems are excessive or deficient in energy, if there is an imbalance between the right and left side of the body in energy performance for a specific organ, or if there is a total body energy efficiency. The result is a graphic report that is used to develop your custom health program, including Qi Gong exercises, sound therapy, Gua sha stone and acupressure treatment to balance out the meridians.

It is well known that 70% of our body mass is water. If this water is of good quality, it can keep us strong and healthy. Sound transmits perfectly through water, because the vibrations can travel very easily through it, keeping it vital. Come and experience the Kita BioSonic Peace Machine. Use the Harmonic Massage sound cushion to re-sound the whole body while the water inside the body is infused with soothing sounds. After an introduction by Mr. Kita, you will pair up, and each participant will have guided practice in using special breathing while giving and receiving a Harmonic Massage sound cushion treatment. At the same time, you will try to envision words of light, such as infinite joy, infinite health, etc. This awakens our divine spark and encourages spontaneous healing.
The Peace Machine is a revolutionary tool that converts soothing low frequency musical sound waves into vibrations that promote mental, physical and emotional health. In this session your specific needs will be addressed. This nurturing and non-invasive modality topically administers deeply soothing sounds to various parts of the body. Simultaneously, these frequencies are experienced as music by the ear and received at a cellular level through the auditory system. These frequencies stimulate harmonic resonance throughout the body and brain to promote an internal environment that fosters healing. Energy moves as vibrations in the form of waves occurring at different frequencies. Each organ resonates at a particular frequency; when the organs are out of balance, the frequencies are no longer in harmony. As a result, a discordant sound is produced. In the human body, this discordance in the organs results in disease. The Kita Biosonic Peace Machine is designed to reestablish and maintain a harmonic resonance that creates peace and well-being in mind and body.
Each “MYE” session assesses your Energetic Wellness, which is the alignment and flow of your personal energy. When your energy is out of alignment, your physicality suffers and you experience pain – physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. This may also lead to a lack of boundaries with others and a feeling that there is more to life than what you see and feel. Identifying and releasing blocks to your energy movement provides pain relief, clarity and insight that allow you to move forward and feel better. In addition to what you experience during your session, you will receive tools and practices* for use in your daily life, helping you learn what your unique energy feels like and how to manage it, while also learning how to stay anchored as you navigate other people’s energy. This work includes intuitive guidance and information, energetic scanning, Reiki, essentials oils chosen specifically for your session, breath work and visualization. *Imagine yourself tuning in to a radio station (the station is you) and adjusting the dial until you have the clearest reception (alignment/connection in yourself). The static (past beliefs, feelings and circumstances) that you sometimes encounter is moved through, quickly and easily.
A one-on-one meeting to discuss your particular needs and to receive individualized recommendations to strengthen or regain your health.

This is an incredible opportunity to gain insight into your own specific condition and health concerns.

Please note that individuals who may have a health concern of a more serious nature might consider looking into doing a private, one-on-one consultation for the most personalized advice and attention. Space is limited to max. 15 participants.

Balance YOUR healing energy with Reiki and crystals. Reiki was developed over 100 years ago in Japan. Reiki treatments replenish, re-awaken and balance the natural healing energy of the body. Reiki nourishes all parts of you: body, mind, and spirit, which can become weakened due to stress, poor diet, emotional attachments and other issues. Crystals have been used for healing throughout history. Crystals work with the human energy field and can move, absorb, focus, direct and diffuse energy within the body. Working with crystalline energy helps the body to find its natural rhythm.
