Journey to Harmony

Journey to Harmony Massothérapeute agréée ~ Keeper of Frequency ~ Sound Balancing ~ Massage ~ Movement Medicine I have been offering massage in Halifax, Nova Scotia since 2013.

Our bodies are extremely fascinating and can do a lot for us when we maintain balance. I wish to be a part of your path to wellness, restoring your body to its most optimal state. I believe in a holistic approach to address the underlying causes to your current concerns. My goal is to work with you, bringing more self-awareness to your daily life, to enhance body functionality, injury prevention a

nd most importantly, long-term vitality. I am able to work with a range of pressure; however I specialize in myofascial release, deep tissue massage, face/scalp treatment, prenatal massage, chronic pain and patterns, joint and muscle restrictions (reduced range of motion or shortened/tight muscles) to restore optimal and pain-free body movement. My journey through the path of bodywork and the healing arts has become less tangible, yet, having a more profound impact. All paths to be of greater service have led to sound, vibration and energy…after all, we are pure energy. And so, I have started to incorporate sound healing into my massage practice. Massage Session (60 or 90min) + a complimentary 15-20min ‘tune up’ which is the beginning sequence of the longer Biofield session, or a spinal walk with the weighted forks or Biofield back treatment. The Tune-Up is complimentary and a great way to explore an introduction to sound balancing and sound medicine. It can bring more coherence and harmony to your body and life force. See Sound Balancing on my website for more information on Biofield Tuning and vibrational healing.

$80 for 60mins (approx 75min with the tuning)*

$120 for 90mins (approx 105mins with tuning)*

* adding the Tune-Up is optional. You can book just a massage without the tuning if you prefer. Please book accordingly. Important: Currently, I am only accepting cash/EMT and not able to provide a receipt for insurance. I look forward to connecting and being a part of your path to harmony and wellness.

😌Feeling inspired and rejuvenated as a bodyworker! ✨ It was a beautiful day learning aquatic bodywork in a saltwater pool and surrounded by my awesome colleagues from Community Healing Days!

💧This experience was deeply enriching to my own relationship with water and how my body responds to water…that’s not in a tub or lake or ocean or float tank…or streaming down from the shower.

💧To float in a safe container and surrender deeply and listen and allow the body to use its own wisdom to reveal and unwind the chronic patterns, the stuck energy…the stuff that we don’t see when we stand up or lie down for an assessment…

🌀It’s fun to play with the absence of gravity and see what is revealed.

💧✨Water holds such deep, ancient wisdom. Codes of high frequency for healing! Stay tuned for more updates as I explore this new path of bodywork! I am ecstatic to offer sound healing as part of my massage practice, but to eventually incorporate water therapy in some form, is what I truly envision.

✨Sound is light is frequency.
💧Water is light is vibration.
✨Same energy…different words based on which frequency is being expressed.

When we work with the body, both it’s physical and non-physical elements, we are actually facilitating its own healing through the movement of energy…through cellular wisdom and fluid patterns/the body’s natural rhythms.

👐🏾Dedicated to YOU!👐🏾

It’s been an honour to be of service to my Halifax, and now Montréal communities over these past ten years. I am so grateful for all of the people that have crossed my practice in these last 10 years. I feel deeply blessed to connect with clients of all streams of life and who are committed to their own journey of wellness and harmony. And I am thankful to my peers, colleagues and teachers who continue to nourish this path with inspiring me to grow and serve.

I am grateful to be here and now, because many of my life’s greatest epiphanies and inspirations have come through during many of my treatments - either as divine messages or huge downloads showing me the potentials of my path. Aside from the joy of working with clients and witnessing your healing, these bursts of inspiration are what have kept my devotion to grow as a human and therapist.

Thank you for trusting in me - to come to me for your wellness and care. Thanks for feeling safe enough to share your inner truths, your hard moments of grief, loss, or transition. Thanks for sharing my name amongst your circles and for coming back when you needed support.

✨As this calling to serve continues, I am humbled to step further into the realm of vibrational medicine (sound healing, sound balancing) and energy…after all…we are pure light.✨

In deep gratitude and honour to continue to serve you,

Valentina (Audrey)

Dedicated to YOU! ~ I am so grateful for all of the people that have crossed my practice in these last 9 years. I feel deeply blessed to connect with clients of all streams of life and who are committed to their own journey of wellness and harmony. And I am thankful to my peers, colleagues and teachers who continue to nourish this path with inspiring me to grow and serve. 

I am grateful to be here and now, because many of my life’s greatest epiphanies and inspirations have come through during many of my treatments - either as divine messages or huge downloads showing me the potentials of my path. It often comes like a huge bolt of energy that fires up my whole being and excites me to continue exploring this path of healing. I think it’s because when I’m “in the zone”…it really is like a meditation…and this is where the magic happens for a client receiving, and for me, in that state of calm to receive these messages too. Aside from the joy of working with clients and witnessing your healing, these bursts of inspiration are what have kept my drive to grow as a human and therapist. These are and were the moments that feed my soul to be of greater service to the collective.

The various conditions and scenarios that I’ve encountered have given me the opportunity to be creative with my knowledge and skills, to address your issues in the most effective way possible. I know every therapist is different and we each have our own styles, but I thank you for coming and choosing me. I love and enjoy my approach….it feels like a dance. A dance of skill and awareness, a dance of movement and presence, and a dance with the tissues. 

Thank you for trusting in me - to come to me for your wellness and care. Thanks for feeling safe enough to share your inner truths, your hard moments of grief, loss, or transition. Thanks for sharing my name amongst your circles and for coming back when you need support. 

As this calling to serve continues, I am humbled to step further into the realm of vibrational medicine (sound healing, sound balancing) and energy…after all…we are pure light.

🎉As of August 8, 2022, I am able to offer receipts for Registered Massage Therapy, however, I am not direct billing to insurance. If you require a receipt, please book your session as Registered Massage Therapy accordingly.

To account for the rising costs of living, I have had to adjust my service fees. If you do not require a receipt, you may choose the uninsured option for a reduced rate. I believe massage and wellness services should be accessible to everyone. Your well-being is important to me and I hope to serve you with this reduced rate that still honours my services.

✨Also new: 45min massage sessions

✨Important Reminder: Currently, I am only accepting cash/EMT and able to provide a receipt for insurance but not direct billing.

I look forward to connecting and being a part of your path to harmony and wellness.😌

Please contact me directly if you have any questions.

Post Super Moon Recalibration. A mini-tuning for you. 🤗

Breathe and receive.

Sound medicine doesn’t require us to “do” anything. The forks offer sound and our fields harmonize to that pure tone.

Thanks for receiving this offering.
Heart-full Blessings for your day,

It feels like we are already in summer mode with a Solstice just around the corner.🌞

I invite you to schedule yourself some pauses as we enter an exciting and spontaneous part of the year.

As fun as summertime adventures and events can be, our self-care and wellness can be easily overlooked as we are “in it” and living it up through the summer.

If you’d like to book a massage, please see my profile for a direct link. I hope to support you on your journey of harmony and wellness.

Blessings,

05/08/2022

On this Mother’s Day, I thought I’d share with you all why I was called to massage therapy, and holistic healthcare.

My mother is the reason I chose the path of massage, but more specifically, preventative, holistic care & living intentionally.

My mother was a nurse in Karachi, Pakistan, where I was born. When we immigrated to Canada, she was unable to work due to the entrance requirements for nursing, and the costs involved. As most moms did until more recently, she was a stay-at-home mom who raised three children.

My mom was the one who inspired my interest in biology, helped me with my science project on the human heart and it’s pumping system, she was the one who encouraged me through my academic studies. She inspired me to be a volunteer, to become involved in my community, and to be of service to others.

When I was about 10, she became very ill, with pulmonary hypertension and then her quality of life declined severely. I lost her when I was fifteen and yes, death really changes your perception of life. Since then, I’ve dedicated myself even more to serve others and promote self-care, holistic wellness, and most of all, preventative care. My experience with my Mom taught me to always ask questions, and plan ahead, and above all, to see the impact of my personal decisions, on my family, friends and community. I am ever grateful for the love, inspiration and lessons of my Mother.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers here and gone, biological and community mothers. You have provided us with all the nourishment of life to follow our paths and live our dreams - to see the vibrant colours of the world and to grow big hearts.

Everyday is your day, because without you, we wouldn’t be here.

In Kundalini Yoga, we end each practice with the Long Time Sun song:

May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide you way on.

🤗

Often we seek out a massage when it’s perhaps “too late” - we’re experiencing pain or discomfort or our stress has affected us in an unmanageable way...

I like to suggest to my clients that if you know you have a big event coming up, whether it be a trip (car or plane), life event (a move, career shift), hosting visitors, a big project at work, an extra long day (servers, office, meetings), an athletic competition (marathon or trip), PLAN AHEAD and book a massage either before and/or after these events (change in relationship, death, loss, trauma).

Pre-event massage can allow you to prepare your body and mind for what’s to come. Massage increases circulation, which brings fresh blood, oxygen and nutrients to our brain and body cells, and flushes out the stagnant old stuff, detoxifying the body - which is in this case, can allow us to “seize the day” and handle these situations with more clarity, presence and energy -and perhaps feeling less stressed out by these situations. This can also reduce the amount of energy your body needs to engage in the recovery after the event.

Post-event massage can help with recovery and restore the body to a harmonious state. It can help flush out the toxins that have built up from imbalance during that stressful event by simply bringing new circulation to help release tension and reduce further build up of tension. With trauma, massage can soothe the nervous system and allow the body to engage in its healing process.

Of course keeping hydrated and eating/sleeping well are extremely important when we are handling stressful or exciting events. Our brain needs water and energy to function otherwise we enter a stressed state.

My goal is to encourage you to have short-term and long-term intentions about your wellness and maintenance, just as you would about family, work, finances and other personal goals.

When you have a clear vision, coupled with planning ahead, you will really feel the benefits of a proactive, intentional approach to living easefully.

I now have a space in the North End of Halifax, in a beautiful studio that is great for working with sound! I continue to offer massage and now incorporate a mini “Tune-Up” as a complimentary service to any massage, if you like.

You can still book a massage without tuning, but it’s just an additional 15 minutes - a great way to arrive into your massage, g r o u n d and r e l a x ~ o p e n and a c t i v a t e your energy pathways to receive the sound balancing to wherever you need it in that moment. It's a gentle way to explore an introduction to sound medicine. It can bring more coherence and harmony to your body and life force.

So far anyone that has had the Tune-Up prior to a massage, has felt more relaxed to receive their massage.

✨Welcome home dear One. 🙏🏾🤗

Some of you may know me through my massage work. Over the years, my journey through the path of bodywork and the healing arts has become less tangible yet, having a more profound impact.

"Sound is the medicine of the future." Edgar Cayce.

All paths to be of greater service, have led to sound, vibration and energy...after all, we are pure energy.

I look forward to sharing more of my sound medicine offerings.
