Past-Life Regression Therapy

A past-life regression session is a therapeutic way to identify, process, and transform unresolved issues, beliefs, blocks, or attachments.  It is a very simple process that involves going back, remembering what happened, and looking at how you processed the event at the time. If you have not finished something from a time earlier in your life, or even from a previous life, it is possible that you have brought it forward to work on now.

Rosen Method Somatic Bodywork & Self-Led Transformational Counseling

Rosen method bodywork balances the nervous system and removes blocks, limiting beliefs, emotional tension and disconnection, unconscious patterns, and pain.   A session engages emotional mindfulness in the embodied self to release stress, old emotions, and beliefs that are stored in the body. This process can create immediate, long-lasting relief from the pain that often accompanies long-held emotional tension.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy releases mental and emotional blocks that prevent us from achieving joy and happiness. It is a modality that addresses stress management, anxiety, fears, phobias, weight management, smoking cessation, sleep conditions, and whatever else stands between you and the life you desire. The client and therapist create a plan of empowerment. During a hypnotherapy session you will attain a relaxed state of mind, somewhere between an alert conscious state and sleep. Together with guidance from your therapist, you will work with the subconscious mind to eliminate emotional blocks, reprogram your mind from negative to positive thinking and instill new habits by using a combination of concentration, relaxation, suggesting, and intention. This develops a path to realize your goals and to live your life with joy, freedom, purpose, and direction.

Infrared Sauna

Bake Your Aching Muscles & Warm Your Soul


infrared-sauna-healing-green-lotus

What Is Infrared?

Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for our infrared sauna therapy. Green Lotus' saunas have Solocarbon® infrared technology that is therapeutic: It is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It works to raise the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.

How Safe Is Infrared?

Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. Because infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.

Health Benefits of a Full-Spectrum Infrared Sauna

Detoxification
A full-spectrum infrared sauna generates a sweat seven times more detoxifying than a traditional sauna.

Relaxation
Our saunas have been designed to encourage the purest form of relaxation and stress-reduction.

Weight Loss
Studies have shown a 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories.

Heart Health
Our Solocarbon® heaters have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Pain Relief
Researchers have found therapeutic effects on pain from continuous use of infrared heat therapy.

Anti-Aging
The skin’s appearance improves as pores open from the deeper sweat induced by our infrared therapy.

Cell Health & Immunity
Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of our exclusive LED near-infrared heating technology, which aids in cell health, muscle, and overall immunity defense.

Wound Healing
Our advanced LED near-infrared technology has the unique ability to help acne, heal wounds faster, and minimize scarring.

Chromotherapy - Restore Balance with Light

Enjoy the healing effects of light and color therapy to improve overall health and harmony. Each color in the visible light spectrum possesses frequencies of a specific vibration; Each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. 

Sound Therapy - Experience a Musical Massage

Combine the healing effects of sound and vibration to harmonize all systems of the body bringing you to a deeper state of relaxation. Attached at specific locations in the sauna, the sound system uses an amplified audio signal to resonate sound waves to the surface of the sauna.

Full Spectrum - Advanced Blend of Near, Mid, and Far Infrared Heat

Full spectrum is unique in its ability to provide near-, mid-, and far-infrared at optimal wavelengths, based on 56 clinical studies. Customized programs based on your personal health goals are available.

Near Infrared Programs

Skin Purification
Effective for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near-infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.

Cell Health
Stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body's cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin's surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery, and strengthen the immune system.

Mid Infrared Programs

Improved Circulation
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow, similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use in the mid range can significantly stimulate blood flow, up to twice the normal rate.

Pain Relief
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles, to relieve anything from minor aches and pains, to chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia.  Used by medical professional to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time

Far Infrared Programs

Weight Management
Studies have shown that an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.

Detox
Sweating is one of the body's natural ways to heal and maintain good health. Infrared saunas are specifically designed to promote a deep, healthy, and naturally-detoxifying sweat - up to 20% more toxins are released compared to traditional saunas.

  • A bottle of water (bottles available for sale or we have free filtered refills)

  • Swim suit or trunks optional - you will be in a private room, and will be sitting on your towel

  • We do not recommend showering for 30 minutes following your sauna session. Simply wipe off your sweat with a towel. Showering while your pores are wide open can put the released toxins back into your system.

  • Do not use if pregnant, have serious inflammation, a fever, a communicable disease, acute bleeding, or are intoxicated. If you have any health concerns it is always best to check with your physician.

I’ve gone to practitioners that have tended to follow the Deepaks, Horsts, et al. David brings far more profound, original, and authentic gifts to his table. He is a healer, a therapist, a cognitive behavioralist, a teacher, a spiritual bear hug, and a loving kick in the tail all in one. Just being in his presence wakes me up and calms me down. He has the gift of giving each person exactly what he or she needs, in precisely how they can best receive it. I’ve sent many friends to him – from newbies to woo-woo aficionados. Even the most skeptical have had profound experiences. Seeing David rocked my world and continues to lead me to new places in my head and my life. His spiritual oil changes are a necessity.
