Maori Healers Romiromi Sessions

AY^AM is honored to welcome the Maori healers during their upcoming tour in California to give private Romiromi sessions in our treatment space.  Romiromi is the practice of using nature to create deep, releasing bodywork to re-balance the body and free the spirit.  It is an ancient Maori art of healing which is passed down from generation to generation and releases negative energy, physical, psychological and generational pain held in the cellular memory of the body.  It involves working with deep tissue alignment, pressure points, nerve centers and muscle tissue which stimulates the internal organs, bones, blood and muscles, releasing and removing toxic build up and waste relieving tension, stress and pain in the body.

Full Moon Tea Ceremony w/ Baelyn Elspeth - Tien Wu

In the words of Baelyn Elspeth - Tien Wu:  Cha Dao "The Way of Tea" is a practice that comes from ancient Chinese lineage. It has been used since its discovery by the Daoists and Sages as a form of medicine and a way to cultivate awakened presence, sustaining long states of meditation.  Tea is a plant teacher, a spirit of Nature, manifested through this Leaf and awakened by hot water. Used in ceremony, it is a dance between the elements, a sensory exploration of presence, where everything is connected by space. Tea meets us exactly where we are and gives exactly what is needed. She is a graceful, strong, compassionate teacher.  Every ceremony is completely unique unto itself and deeply moving.

Sit time will be at 4PM. Please arrive early as doors will close once the ceremony begins.  Space is limited.  Kindly make a reservation HERE
