Healing Hatha

by Kim dela Cruz, LAc, CYT

Acupressure Massage and Yoga Meridian Therapy

This class is solely created and developed by me. I have employed my knowledge as an Acupuncturist for 20 years and yogi for 30 years to bring you healing at the deepest levels of your mind and body.

I have also created and developed a class that also incorporates Yoga and Acupuncture. I perform workshops at my clinic, KD Acupuncture Therapy and other yoga studios around San Diego. I am available for private and semi-private Hatha Yoga (30-minutes or 45-minutes), Healing Hatha with Essential Oils (45-minutes) or Yoga and Acupuncture Workshops (45-minutes) in person or remotely through Zoom. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have!

My Healing Hatha class incorporates essential oil massage on acupressure points and activation of specific Chinese Medicine channels and focuses on specific chakras for healing of mind and body, Mantra energy and Hatha Yoga.

Flow for A New Moon!
Fly me to the moon…onward and upward!
Clearing out the old and moving into intention for new positive and manifestation of pure
compassion and heart’s wishes.

For the New Moon this time we will use Sweet Orange. Expands upwards, energizes, disperses and cools. Activates the Middle Burner, Spleen and Stomach channel in Chinese Medicine and Heart Chakra (Fire), Solar Plexus(Earth) Chakra and Sacral (Water) Chakra.

Place drops of oil on the pointer finger and rub both pointer fingers together and smell deeply
into both nostrils for 30 seconds.

Gently massage a couple of drops of essential oil onto acupressure points 30 to 60 seconds light pressure small circular motion, both directions.

Working with New Moon energy we will massage the Liver and Gall Bladder channels in Chinese Medicine which helps with moving stuck energy, moving stagnation in muscles, pain, and helping with discernment, promoting decision making for good choices.
