Gate of Life Healing Arts at Cabot Shores may provide the initial spark and further support you to do just that. Not only that, the healing arts modalities offered at Cabot Shores may inspire you to continue some type of practice once you return home to the demands of daily life.
Keeping things simple and direct is our guiding principle.
Qi Gong is a form of gentle exercise that aids in the movement of human life energy, also called Qi. In applying these techniques, one employs the use of the human body’s meridians, which are the body’s channels through which Qi Energy flows. Here at Cabot Shores, we offer complimentary Qi Gong sessions in the morning before breakfast. These sessions usually last 15-20 minutes and are open to anyone. Please let Barbara know that you are interested in attending one night ahead of time. (Check for location of session)
Group meditation is also offered free of charge. Meditation is an ancient practice in which one learns to calm the mind so that one’s awareness is able to increase. Sessions consist of mindfulness meditation and are open to beginners as well as more advanced meditation students; they last 15-20 minutes. Please let us know if you are interested in attending.
Individual therapeutic massage (Zero Balancing and Acupressure) is also available to guests. Treatments can be set up in your room or your chalet. Please let Barbara know if you would like to book a treatment as soon as possible. Cost: $75 for 55 minutes
