Treatment Services Offered

Relaxation Massage is focused on releasing tension, and assisting the client to feel a greater sense of balance and grounding. This type of massage is helpful for stress management, and healing as your body and mind enter a state of restoration and rejuvenation. Choose from our selection of essential oils to add an element of aromatherapy to your personalized massage. Our practitioners lend a compassionate ear, and can be asked to provide meditative guidance, soothing music, or silence.

OPTIONAL: Aromatherapy Incorporated

Aromatic essential oils and high quality carrier oils are artfully prepared, and then skillfully massaged into your body upon request, during any Relaxation Massage.

Experience the healing power of essential oils. Considered to be the lifeblood of the plants, these oils gently offer us their gifts of health and well-being. Whether you suffer from stiff joints, sore muscles, or are in need of emotional support, this aromatic massage will transport you to a place of pure bliss.

The word Reiki can be translated to mean spiritual universal life force energy; Similar to Prana (Indian), Chi or Qi (Chinese), or Huna (Hawaiian). The Japanese modality of Reiki is nearly one hundred years old and is a process of a practitioner laying hands on a client and inviting Reiki, or life force energy, to flow into the client and through the client freely. In this experience energetic blockages may be released to bring spiritual anatomy into better alignment. It is important to note that physical touch is not necessary to receive the benefits of Reiki.

The benefits and healing of Reiki are experienced not only in the energetic body, but can also be noticed mentally, physically and emotionally. You may even continue to notice benefits up until a week after a treatment.

Laura Dunford, a Registered Yoga Teacher and a 2nd Degree Reiki Practitioner, invites you to join her at Peterborough Living Yoga for a very relaxing Reiki experience. Her hour-long treatments can include a brief consultation prior to, and after treatment. Before beginning Reiki, she centers her clients inviting them to relax the body and mind to cultivate a sense of presence and an open mind. The session may include the use of crystals and essential oils. Clients are welcome to bring their own essential oils for use during the session and their own crystals to charge in the healing Reiki energy (or for use during the session).

Leave feeling more balanced, aligned and connected to the energetic qualities of yourself.

Holistic Aesthetician & Yoga Teacher

As yoga takes a greater focus in her life, Angella is once again opening up her holistic practice to the public. She brings with her 28 years of experience as a Holistic Aesthetician. Receiving her formal education from Sheridan College, Angella has and continues to be a life long learner by completing several certificate courses and workshops within the healing arts.

Her current list of treatments include;

  • Botanical facials
  • Relaxation massage
  • Aromatherapy massage
  • Full Body Exfoliating Sugar Scrub Massage
  • Back Exfoliation and Massage (essentially a facial for your back)

Angella has recently taken her 15 year personal yoga practice to new heights by completing the Amrita 200 hr. Yoga Teacher Training certification. It is Angella’s sincerest desire to share her love for yoga with all, and she enjoys weaving wisdom teachings and mindfulness into her gently paced classes.

Over the years, she has developed a keen knowledge of healing plants and aromatherapy. She uses this understanding in the creation of her handcrafted skin care products. Her treatments are entirely chemical free on the basis that, when it comes to your skin, natural is usually best.

alexaAlexa offers intuitive touch to soothe, balance and ground clients for 1 hour sessions (or longer). She lends a compassionate ear, and responds to your individual needs to help you improve your state of wellness. Experience a custom massage, meditative guidance, anatomical points of consideration, and yoga-related suggestions to take into your self-care routine.

Come away feeling refreshed and – if you so choose – empowered with tools for peace and wellness. Alexa currently studies physical and energetic anatomy in her free time to compliment her understanding of the body as a yoga teacher and body worker.

sashaSasha’s first training in hands on healing was in 2011 with Reiki Master and Teacher Aryan Vedh in Daramshala India. This work complimented what she learned previously at The Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health during a 200 hour yoga teacher training. In spring and summer 2016 she apprenticed with Tamara Pereira where she was introduced to a wide range of healing modalities, and she has since developed a one hour relaxation massage that includes tending to sore back, neck and shoulder muscles. As you work through an hour of relaxation together, it is her preference to have a conversational tone between moments of silent concentration.

“My time with friends and yoga students has been educational and has helped me to refine my offering to the Holistic Team at Peterborough Living Yoga. I am looking forward to meeting new people who are adventuring on their personal journey to physical heath and energetic well being.” ~Sasha
