Sound Healing and Acupuncture Progressive

Nourish your yin: embrace the slowness, the stillness, the quiet.

With Shelly Cassivi and Dr. Kayla Springer, ND

In this progressive series of four weekly sessions, we use the powerful combination of acupuncture and sound healing to unblock the bodies energy channels, nourishing yin energy to create a balance between the yin and yang.

Yin is the fluid component of the body representing rest, slowness, quiet, heaviness. In opposition, yang energy is moving, active, buoyant, rising, masculine, forceful, light. One cannot survive without the other, but each flow in balance through the seasons.

Winter is a the time of yin energy. It is a time to come inward, rest, and nourish your body and soul. In the body, yin manifests physically as fluids – blood, fluid, lymph, water.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is used to unblock energy channels. Disease is seen as an imbalance or blockage in the flow of qi, or vital energy along energy pathways known as meridians. By stimulating certain points along these meridians with thin needles or pressure, the flow of energy through these pathways is restored.

In each class you will be guided into a comfortable, supported, restorative pose. Here, you will receive mindfully placed acupuncture, while you relax into sound vibrations.

Dr. Kayla Springer, ND

My journey into medicine started at a young age. I’ve always felt a calling to become a physician, but within the medical system I saw people becoming sicker and sicker, taking pills to mask side effects from other pills, and I knew there had to be another way. For a while I felt lost – wanting to answer to my calling as a healer, but not within the realm of the western medical system. When I was eventually introduced to Naturopathic medicine, I immediately knew I had found my calling. I completed my undergraduate degree in behavioural neuroscience at SFU, and then enrolled in the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Program at Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC.

My personal and professional philosophy ultimately stems from a value of connection and balance. I believe that the human body and mind function optimally when we cultivate a strong relationship to ourselves, to others, and to our planet. Personally, I find my value when I stand as a positive energy in the lives of others, and my goal as is to create a foundation for healing and growth, foster an environment for personal empowerment,  and support health and wellness in the bodies, minds, and spirits of my patients. Medicine requires authenticity, support, and honesty, and I uphold these in every one of my patient encounters.

Through my education, training, and experiences, I have developed a unique set of skills to help people achieve more balance, feel more magic in their lives, cultivate more connection, and to feel more comfortable in their own skin. I love all aspects of medicine and have a well rounded foundation in many conditions, but have a special interest in skin conditions, environmental medicine, allergies, immune dysfunction, and detoxification.
