What is a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is an ancient, all inclusive, cross-cultural symbol that is found throughout the world. Walking this winding circular pathway promotes relaxation, insight, hope, peace, personal growth, transformation, and overall mental, emotional, physical & spiritual health and wellness.Unlike a maze that has many dead ends and can cause confusion and fear; Walking a labyrinth's single winding pathway is an activity that offers an opportunity to connect with self, others, nature and/or Higher power simply by putting one foot in front of the other.
What is Spirituality?
A sense of connectedness to self, nature, others, higher power....it is different for every individual based on their own life experiences and influences. It encompasses personal beliefs, values, meaning and purpose.
The Canadian Model of Occupational Performance identifies spirituality as the core of the individual. OT's consider spirituality when addressing health, disability, disease and functioning in daily life.
Occupational Therapy (OT) helps people learn skills for the job of living and being in all environments!
OT is a holistic practice that honours and empowers the individual and facilitates performance and satisfaction in daily activities. (Self-care, leisure & productivity.) OT's consider the physical, social, cultural, mental, emotional and spiritual, internal and external environments of their clients.

Who do I work with?
Some tools and strategies I use to promote function & goal attainment:
Portable finger Labyrinths are also available when accessibility or mobility is a concern. Labyrinths can be constructed to accommodate wheelchair/ walker use. The finger Labyrinth is also used in therapy as a sensory integration tool.
Some use this tool as a walking meditation; a time for quieting the mind while moving the body and spirit. Some reflect on meaning and purpose, problem solve, make decisions, set goals, grieve, pray, feel feelings and identify needs, find their creative heart, dance or celebrate!
The Labyrinth is often considered a metaphor for life. The circles represent the human quest for unity, balance and wholeness, the single winding path to the centre and back; twisting and turning as the journey.
"There are many ways to walk the Labyrinth, ways as unique as each individual who comes to walk."
Emotional Freedom Techniques developped by Gary Craig, uses a combination of Mind Body Medicine and Acupuncture Meridians.

What is Reiki ?
The Usui system of Natural Healing was first shared in Japan in the 1800's. This gentle hands-on approach opens up blocked energy pathways that hold physical, emotional and spirtual pain/trauma. Reiki can decrease pain and promote: relaxation, energy flow, balance and healing for mind, body & spirit.
