Our Service Descriptions

The Navaswann Program facilitates balance and awakens the inner knowing of the Body, Mind, and Soul. We recommend that individuals receive a physical health exam from their primary care provider before initiating Our Program. Confirmation that all participants are medically stable ensures successful outcomes and allows us to consider the best course and provide the best care toward physical, mental & spiritual balance. A description of the individualized service options follows:


Asian Medicine & Complementary Care

Navaswann Programs includes options for traditional Asian Medicine Practices and offers "Complementary Care" that is not intended to replace modern medicine, but to work in conjunction with other health promoting protocols. For more than 3,000 years many cultures have received the healing benefits of this Eastern style of medicine both in the treatment and prevention of illness, and in the promotion of health and wellbeing.


Acupuncture and Electro-Acupressure both involve stimulating specific locations and meridians specific to the condition being treated. A meridian is the pathway in which energy or qi flows through the body, similar to the way blood flows through our vessels and capillaries. This treatment has been proven to stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. It normally induces a deep state of relaxation, which promotes balance and systemic healing.


Cupping is a technique that involves the use of suction to increase circulation in an affected area. It is most commonly used to release tight, painful muscles. It can also be used to help resolve the common cold, to assist with asthma, to enhance system detoxification and to reduce fluid retention.


Gua Sha is an East Asian healing technique that involves applying stimulation to the back, neck, shoulders, and limbs with a round-edged instrument in downward strokes. This technique is used to treat as well as prevent the common cold, flu, bronchitis, asthma, as well as any chronic disorder involving pain, and congestion of Qi (energy) and Blood.


Tui Na is an ancient Chinese massage technique often used in conjunction with acupuncture to disperse pain or qi stagnation from the region being treated. The techniques commonly used include gliding, kneading, percussion, friction, pulling, rotation, rocking, vibration, and shaking. The intent of Tui Na is more specifically therapeutic than just for relaxation. The use of this technique allows the practitioner to focus on specific problems, especially chronic pain associated with the muscles, joints, and skeletal system. It's especially effective for joint pain, sciatica, muscle spasms, and pain in the back, neck, and shoulders. It also can helps chronic conditions such as insomnia, headaches (including migraines), and the tension associated with stress.


Detox Massage is a form of bodywork designed to naturally detoxify the body. This light technique is designed to stimulate circulation, increase oxygen levels, decrease inflammation and stimulate the defenses of the immune system. This massage consists of intermittent pressure techniques that softly compress and stretch muscle tissues. It helps to relieve health conditions like fatigue, headaches, and other organ or system functions affected by toxins.


Nutritional Healing, Consultation

The goal of nutritional healing is to assist individuals and their families in making healthier choices for themselves. Optimal living begins with nutritional healing, which means eating foods that are right for you. This may help correct certain patterns of imbalance in your body and help you to feel better overall. Choosing a healthy diet is an important method of preserving health and preventing disease. Most importantly, nutrition can help individuals regain their vitality and in turn help people enjoy life to the full extent. Navaswann offers consultation, counseling and menu suggestions for individuals with dietary restrictions, health conditions, or weight management goals.


Yoga, Functional Exercise, Personal Training, and Movement Therapy

Navaswann’s Yoga Instructors and Fitness Consultants will provide small group programming in addition to working with each individual to design a specific program that is fun and works to correct any structural imbalance and enhance physical fitness. An imbalance can be a result of strong muscle groups overpowering the weak ones and creating a “tug of war”, resulting in pain. In looking at one’s posture, certain exercises may actually improve the alignment of the body, allowing your movement to be more efficient and in turn eliminating pain, especially in your neck and back. Achieving structural balance through functional exercise is attainable through routine stretching and muscle group isolation. Exercise is an essential part of a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle. Additionally, Navaswann will assist individuals and families in identifying fun recreational activities that will help lift the spirits and lend to a healthy and active lifestyle.

Sports Performance Evaluation & Peak Performance Training

Navaswann offers specialized services for Professional and Elite Athletes. Our team reviews performance history, and conducts a comprehensive Assessment of Power, Strength, Stability, Mobility, Speed, Agility, Conditioning, and Balance. Additionally, the Athletes ability to focus, concentrate, respond, and regulate physical, mental, and emotional states of arousal, will be evaluated. Each of these performance tests are used to develop a training program that optimizes the performance of the body, and unlocks the hidden powers of the mind. Acupuncture, Nutrition, Functional Exercise, Kinesio Taping and EEG Biofeedback are combined to assist Athletes in creating the competitive edge needed to produce winning results.


Kinesio® Taping for Muscle Support & Rehabilitation

The Kinesio® Taping Method involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support, as well as to prevent over-contraction. When there is an injury or when a muscle is not properly functioning, various symptoms can arise and the body’s own healing process can be thwarted. This is because muscles not only allow for movement of the body, but they also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, as well as body temperature.

Kinesio® Taping is an innovative approach to treating nerves, muscles and organs. There are two techniques involved in this method. The first offers support while allowing full range of motion, enabling the individual to participate in his/her normal physical activities with functional assistance. The second technique, which is most commonly used in the acute stage of rehabilitation, helps prevent overuse or over-contraction and helps provide facilitation of lymph flow for an entire 24 hour period. This method is often used in conjunction with other therapies, including acupuncture, hydrotherapy, massage therapy and electrical stimulation.


Specialized Services for Chronic Pain & Recovery from Surgery and Accidents

Navaswann offers specialized services for chronic pain and recovery from surgery and accidents. Our commitment is to assist in reducing and coping with pain, keeping medication use to a minimum and reducing or eliminating unwanted side effects from invasive procedures and surgeries. For clients who have had gastric bypass surgery, we will develop a program that supports your recovery and addresses the underlying issues that resulted in your weight problem. For clients recovering from plastic surgery, we provide services that assist the healing processes of the body, and address the energetic balancing that the Body, Mind, & Soul require after augmentation.


NeuroLeadership Training for Business Performance Improvement

Navaswann offers services that focus on applying neuro-scientific principles to the area of leadership development, management training, education, consulting and coaching. NeuroLeadership Training involves the use of EEG Biofeedback techniques to facilitate optimal brainwave patterns and neuro-physiological states. The result is improved decision making & problem solving, and the enhanced ability to regulate emotions, access wisdom and common sense, and manage stress during times of challenge and change.


Energy Medicine

Navaswann employs a variety of Energy Medicine Techniques and Methodologies to enhance the desire outcomes of our Clients. Energy Medicine is a term used for holistic healing therapies that are focused on manipulating “life force” to bring about balance and wellness. Long recognized by Eastern cultures, subtle energy fields are only recently being detected, studied, and utilized by Western medicine. Energy medicine is transforming health care, as well as having an impact on education, business, sports, and all other endeavors involving human performance. Some energy-based modalities involve the use of neuroscientific applications including Neurofeedback, others involve practitioners using hands-on techniques, while many involve non-touch treatments.


Neurotherapy for Optimal Mental, Emotional & Spiritual Health

Neurotherapy, the application of EEG Biofeedback or brainwave training, is a painless, non-invasive, learning strategy that enables people to change the activity of their brains so they can be free from unpleasant symptoms and function at their best. The process involves placing sensors on the scalp at specific locations correlated with specific brain function and associated with various physical, mental, and emotional patterns. These sensors pick up the signals from the brain waves, which are then amplified and converted to feedback that is provided through visual display, sound, and tactile stimulation. As the client observes the ebb and flow of this activity, the brain processes and learns how it is off balance and makes subtle, but profound adjustments, leading to more regulation and improved brain function. This translates to emotional and behavioral change.

Neurotherapy is a powerful technique for training the body and mind. It tames the restlessness, reduces stress, dissolves anxiety, decreases mood fluctuations, improves focus & concentration, and reduces insomnia and symptoms of pain. This training helps to promote relaxation and balance on all levels--mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual-which is the starting point for all healing. Neurotherapy offers hope for many conditions and disabilities in which the brain is not working as well as it might. Sleep patterns leading to teeth grinding, snoring, and Sleep Apnea can be improved, allowing the body and mind to rest appropriately, resulting in increased energy and alertness. Mood fluctuations including anxiety, bi-polar, depression, and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) can be stabilized using this method. Additionally, some success has been achieved in managing migraine headaches and chronic pain, as well as the impulsivity and lack of attention associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).


The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or Meridian Tapping Technique

This practice repairs blockages or disturbances in the body’s energy system created by negative emotions. A person chooses a specific emotion to focus on which they wish to shift. This may be anger, frustration, embarrassment, insult, or belittlement. During the tapping sequence the person focuses on the emotion to be reduced or cleared while also making positive statements to offset the negative emotions.


Eden Energy Medicine, Johrei, Pranic Healing & Nontouch Energy-Based Techniques

These protocols accelerate the healing process through the use of “life-force” being directed to the part of the physical body that needs healing. In order to locate blockages of energy flow or address overflow and overuse issues, the practitioner scans the recipient’s energy field and uses a variety of techniques to re-establish balance. Many times, energy is projected through the practitioner’s palm to cleanse, energize, and revitalize the problematic area. This technique may be used to reset the flow of energy through the body’s meridians or to fortify the internal strength of the client in relation to the chakras.

Johrei is a Japanese healing modality that uses focusing and scanning tools to dispel negativity and increase vitality. Positive results from this healing process include:

  • Increases spiritual quality
  • Clears mental confusion
  • Detoxifies physical body
  • Accelerates healing process


The Way of the Heart ™ Healing Integration

This process works with the Electro-Magnetic Field and energy patterns that represent all the possibilities and limitations we experience in life. Through a series of protocols that provide re-education on a Brain / Body, Heart / Body or Soul level, Clients can begin to shift out of patterns that have obstructed their Life Force. The protocols used allow for the expression of human potential while offering relief from stress or overcoming life long challenges. The Way of the Heart™ process provides the container for safe and empowering transformation and gives people an opportunity to permanently re-program old patterns, inherited genetic programs, and limiting belief systems, in a swift and gentle way.


Gemstone Therapy

This alternative healing technique strengthens the body, mind & spirit, and assists in the resolution of issues and patterns, through the use of various forms of natural stones, gems, and crystals. The theory is that gemstones carry energy that vibrates and can effect the energetic flow within an individual. By placing these stones within the energy field of an individual, the natural vibrational patterns begin to change and become more closely matched. Often the effects are indirect, but very potent. Other times, the effects are very direct and repeatable. Each stone has different qualities and specific properties that can be used to facilitate growth and transformation.


Aromatherapy

This practice involves using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing. A form of alternative medicine, aromatherapy is gaining momentum. It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.


Personal Inspiration, Personal Development, and Client-Centered Mentoring

Navaswann focuses on each individual’s strengths and encourages living in a balanced & energized state. It supports our clients in becoming free from old habits, debilitating beliefs, and distorted expectations.

Our trained Counselors will help identify an internal source of personal power for each individual, which can translate into fulfilling career choices, options for entrepreneurship, or the identification of creative outlets and opportunities for meaningful participation and contribution to the world.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) for Trauma & Stress

EMDR is a comprehensive, integrative approach which contains elements of many effective therapies and structured protocols that are designed to maximize effects. EMDR is an information processing therapy and uses a specific approach to attend to past experiences that have set the groundwork for a stress and trauma response. Additionally, it addresses current situations that trigger undesirable emotions, beliefs and sensations, and the positive experience needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and mental well-being. One of the procedural elements is “dual stimulation” which involves simulating the bilateral eye movement similar to REM sleep through the use of tones, taps, or electro-pulsation. During the reprocessing phases the client attends momentarily to past memories, present triggers, or anticipated future experiences while simultaneously focusing on a set of external stimulus. During that time, clients generally experience the emergence of insight, changes in memories, or new associations.


Follow-up & Support

The Navaswann Program offers take home tools so that the benefit of the Retreat can be maximized and maintained. Home routines will be suggested and telephone consultations scheduled each month to help you stay focused on your intentions. Periodic “tune-ups” are also advised to sustain results over time. The intervals for these sessions will be determined at the end of the Retreat. For best results, we typically recommend follow-up for 6 months to one year, including attending additional Retreats.
