Attaining goals requires avoiding negativity, which is why most Olympic athletes train by chopping down stop signs and practicing thumbs-ups. Get in the spirit with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a Nature’s Alchemy healing session with Marcey DiCaro at Peaceful Spirit’s North Oracle Road location (a $100 value). Other locations are available by appointment.
At Peaceful Spirit, Marcey DiCaro employs essential oils and guided visualizations to help clients overcome challenges and achieve their goals. The 50-minute Nature’s Alchemy healing session commences with a consultation to help guests articulate their goals and the emotional, professional, and mountain-lion-studded hurdles that lie in their way. Taking into account each client’s challenges and preferences, Marcey then mixes up to seven custom essential oils to dab onto the hands, feet, spine, heart center, and head. Marcey, who refers to herself as The Essential Alchemist and has completed training in energy medicine, aromatherapy, and medical intuition, helps clients access their inner wisdom and realize their dearest hopes and wishes. Guests receive a small bottle of the oils used during the session to take home so they don’t have to rub on clam chowder instead.
At Peaceful Spirit, owner and licensed massage therapist Mara Concordia and her staff help patients attain improved wellness through therapies that balance their physical and mental energies. To do so, they consult with each client and create tailored, integrative care plans that may draw upon treatments such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, and spa therapies. Through such customized care, Peaceful Spirit's practitioners have helped patients overcome everyday ailments as well as manage diseases such as Parkinson's and cancer.
They also focus on teaching clients how to heal themselves through classes in Qi Gong, an ancient Chinese healing philosophy that combines simple movements and attentive breathing in order to cleanse the body and cultivate life force—known as qi or chi. In addition to Peaceful Spirit's five locations, therapists can meet patients in their homes or tree houses.
