Light Path Discovery Center's holistic healer, Gary Hopkins, improves energy flow to naturally heal tension and fatigue with hand-administered Thai reflexology and Thai massage. The Thai system takes a similar but gentler approach to Chinese methods, opening the canals of sen, or energy lines, by carefully manipulating the feet and crooning tunes from the gondolier songbook. Practitioners believe that obstruction in the flow of these energies leads to discomfort and potential illness, and improving the flow leads to physical and mental well-being. During each 60-minute reflexology session, Gary focuses on patron's feet and lower legs with pressure-point stimulation applied with a Thai stick made of teak wood. In addition to detoxifying muscles while generating a soothing experience to ease the mind and spirit, foot manipulations can also improve circulation in the feet and lower-leg region and can improve a soccer player's ability to score a goal or not get tangled in the net. During 60-minute Thai massage sessions, he focuses on the entire body, combining muscle stretching and compression. Patrons remain fully clothed during Thai reflexology and Thai massage treatments.
Gary Hopkins at Light Path Discovery Center
Gary Hopkins can divide his mid-20s in two parts: the time before he discovered self-healing, and the time after he discovered self-healing. Before, overwhelming stress and overworking caused him to suffer from anxiety, insomnia, spinal misalignments, and gout. Then, he started meditating, practicing tai chi and energy healing, and taking natural supplements. Not only did these practices help remedy his ailments, but they also led him to a new career as an intuitive healer. Continuing these studies into his 30s, he added such holistic healing methods as Thai massage and reflexology to his regimen.
For more than 10 years, he’s shared his knowledge through a private practice and at Light Path Discovery Center. He is dedicated to helping others conquer physical, psychological, and emotional issues with carefully honed skills and several bodywork methods he developed on his own. For those unable to visit him personally, Gary has penned two books— The Master Within and Axiatonal Integration —that guide readers as they attempt to unlock their happiness, which is usually kept in a safe and buried under their childhood home.
