The Treasure of Windhorse (lung ta)

When we are in alignment with heaven and earth and with the five elements;
when body, mind and spirit are in harmony; our life force arises without
impediment. We are joyful, compassionate and strong. Obstacles do not
deter us When we ride the energy arising from that state of inherent
goodness and awakened mind, which is

Windhorse arises frequently in mindful acupressure sessions. In this "moment of truth"  the energy smooths out and
centers as though the person has fully dropped into the body and the present moment.  They are totally relaxed, as
though  in a deep sleep,  yet they are fully awake. They remember what they have always known:  that the journey is not
about finding something we are missing, but about coming home to the truth of all that we are.

What's Up Now

The forms of bodywork offered here  are  not  intended for the diagnosis, treatment or cure of disease. They are relaxation therapy, and a useful adjunct to licensed, qualified medical or psychological care. For any persistent pain or symptom, even a seemingly minor one,
you are strongly encouraged to consult a medical doctor. When used in conjunction with standard medical treatment, these techniques can assist the healing process by releasing tension, decreasing stress and encouraging a sense of increased well-being.
