We are excited and honored to offer creekside healing sessions. Based on Native-American teachings passed down by Stalking Wolf through Tom Brown to Karl Direske, our healing technique is called with an Apache name, Niasziih (prounounced “nye-uh-zee-eye”), which means Healing Vessel. Niasziih healers are vessels for healing, working with nature, awareness and contact to meet clients’ needs on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level.
Typical sessions will involve a client laying on a massage table fully clothed (except for shoes) with a blanket or sheet (depending on temperature). Sessions have some parallel with a therapeutic massage, but the focus is not just physical. Clients often feel a range of sensations, including warmth, images, emotions, memories, pulsing and energy, deep relaxation and calm.
Sessions generally last 50 minutes, and we invite clients to stay a full hour to discuss the experience afterwards.
Who is this for? Anyone. Everyone. Sessions are offered to whomever wishes to join us on this healing journey. You do not need to have a medical complaint to benefit from a healing.
We offer regular sessions on many Sunday afternoons and by appointment. Please review this calendar to find a Sunday session, or contact us for an appointment.
To schedule your session or ask for more information, please add a “comment” to this page. NOTE: your comment will NOT be published. Comments are just the simplest way for us to receive your message.

Bottom line: Suger is toxic and an incredibly expensive threat to society. We need a grassroots fight to regulate it like we do liquor and tobacco.

What happened when a confirmed vegan switched to a meat full diet? Read: Eat Meat & Fat!
I would just add that it is CRITICAL where you get your meat. Factory-farmed, pesticide-laden, hormone-injected meat, which is nearly the ONLY thing you’ll find in any restaurant, and what you get when you don’t go way out of your way to find good meat, shouldn’t even be called meat. It can cause immediate illness in sensitive people, for good reason. Those who notice no immediate reaction may well have longer term ill effects.

How many dermatologists does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Oops, I mean how many dermatologists think diet has nothing to do with eczema, and that the proper treatment for eczema is steroids? The two I asked thought this. But their treatment did not cure my skin problems. Diet, as discussed on this site, did.

Dentists. Boy. There is so much unhelpful (to say nothing of painful and expensive) dentistry out there when the healthiest options are 1) diet (see Weston A. Price) and 2) simple (nearly free) habits, like brushing with baking soda.
There are some fundamental things to understand: cavities and cracks and receding gums can all be fixed with DIET, not dentistry.
