A session with Lawrence Needham

BODHI - Healing and Bodywork

My focus is an integrated approach to bodywork; addressing body, mind, and spirit. I believe this is the most effective way to facilitate true healing. Healing, in my definition, is a return to wholeness, and to the highest and clearest expression of who we can become. Our natural state is one of perfect health, ease and peace.        
Tension, imbalance, stress and illness very often have psycho-spiritual, energetic, as well as physical origins

Using  hands-on, heart centered energetic processes, I assist you in disconnecting from ongoing Stress, and Physical Tension, reconnecting you to your inner source of Healing, Balance and Power.

When was the last time you felt really fantastic emotionally and physically? Did you know that everything has a frequency or vibration? The immune system becomes compromised when our frequency/vibration drops, either of an organ or the entire system, setting the stage for dis-ease.
Releasing trauma or subconscious belief systems stored within the tissues (energetic healing), increases the body's frequency/vibration. When this happens, perceptions change, spiritual growth and transformation occur AND, you feel fantastic!

It is my goal, to help you to discover your innate potential, to live and be in abundant health, to have vitality in mind, body and spirit. Each choice we make, opens doorways to new paths, new experiences and, better choices as we live and grow on the spiritual journey through our physical vehicle. The session work we do together can help you achieve this.

We are currently living in a time of tremendous transformation, evolution, healing, and empowerment. I believe the energetic and spiritual healing modalities I share will help you to embrace, activate, and experience greater consciousness and awareness in your daily life.

Your First Session with me

Your first session begins with a conversation to discover what you want your session to support. From our initial conversation, we can then set the intention of your session.

A "Life Alignment Integration" session facilitates:

The release of held stress and tension on the mental and physical levels•

A feeling of lightness and clarity as congested energy is cleared from the bio-field (Aura) and chakras  •

A shift from the stress locked mid level brain function, to a higher level thought process •

A rebalancing of the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which results in  more whole brain function •

A reconnection to Mind, Body and Heart that leaves you centered, calm and aware •

My Work:
Assisting others in being truly present in the moment.. Reconnecting to their own inner power..
Creating, and holding their own centered, personal space..

"Lawrence is a professionally trained healer with a natural gift. My experience was profound movement of stagnant energy which had been restricting my ability to move forward in personal and professional areas. I left the healing session feeling lighter. I experienced energetic releases & realignment throughout the session. Movement in my system continued for the next few days after the healing session. As a result of the healing session with lawrence, I have achieved and maintained: Uplifted vision, clarity and a better sense of direction. Absolutely recommended. Don't miss out on this amazing healer..." - Lisa F

"I started going to Lawrence for energy and raindrop therapy sessions since November of 2008. Handsome, kind hearted and a good listener are among the first impressions I have of Lawrence. In the new year (2009), I started noticing a shift in my energy field. I credited this shift to the sessions I have with Lawrence. Doors started opening for me. I met new people, enjoyed new passions, looked healthier and generally became a more positive and confident person. While people around me were laid off, I got bonuses and received one of the best job evaluations ever . The vibe work destresses me and appears to clear me of the toxicity of negative emotions. The raindrop therapy relaxes and cleanses me and leaves me feeling refreshed and ready for the challenges ahead. I highly recommend Lawrence to anyone who is spiritually receptive and hungry for a positive renewal in his or her live."- Jon G - SF Ca

Healing Arts

BODHI - Healing and Bodywork

Healing arts:                                   

The Alphabiotic Process enables your brain to do an internal systems check. With no actual clear and present danger, the brain then finds no need for an outer reactive "stress response" - which is mid-level brain function in either the right or left hemisphere of the brain. Internal stress switches, turn off, freeing up a great deal of energy to heal, balance, and run the body. It is much like Re-booting a Computer.
The Alignment / Unification process is a "reconnection back to Source", unifying the physical with the Spiritual. This brings about a more complete expression of Spirit and Life Force in all areas of one’s life, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual

Cranio Sacral
Cranio Sacral a gentle form of bodywork that uses subtle touch, and connects with the nervous system to help release deeply-held tension and restore function throughout the body
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the Cranio-sacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
Cranio Sacral is light-touch technique, and works with all the tissues and bones of the body, the cerebrospinal fluid, and our fundamental ordering principle, which in Craniosacral therapy, is known as the Breath of Life. It is both a physiologically and an energetically based system. Over time, its effects can be vast and life-changing. At its core, cranial work brings us back to ourselves as we were originally intended to be, to our original intention, before the slings and arrows of experience lodged themselves in our bodies.

Reiki is a time honored, sacred method of bringing balance and harmony to the body, the mind, and the soul. It operates on the physical, mental and spiritual levels and acts as a connection with the ever-flowing love light energy of the universe. It is pure, simple, safe and elegant way to bring about healing and balance.
Reiki boosts and improves the immune system.
It helps increase energy levels.
It reduces stress and relieves stress as well.
It helps a client in the grieving process.
Reiki can be used as a complementary therapy with conventional therapies.
It improves chronic an acute medical problems, and promotes creativity.

Karuna® is a powerful form of Reiki developed by William Rand in the mid 90's. Translated from sanskrit, Karuna means "Takeing compassionate action to diminish the suffering of others". Karuna (the reiki of compassion) is a very unique energy, has it’s own symbols and works along with traditional Usui reiki. I feel it has an “earthy” grounding energy.

Pranic Healing 
Pranic healing is an energy based healing technique that utilizes "prana" to balance, harmonize and transform the body's energy processes. "Prana" is a Sanskrit word that means, "life-force". This invisible bio-energy or vital energy keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. The Chinese refer to this subtle energy as "Chi".
This healing technique is based on the fundamental principle that the body is a "self-repairing" living entity that possesses the innate ability to heal itself.
Pranic Healing works on the principle that increasing the life force or vital energy to the physical and subtle energy bodies accelerates the healing process. The chakras are also cleared and balanced in this way.
Pranic Healing is applied on the bio-electromagnetic field also known as your aura, which contains the mold and blueprint of the physical body. This bioplasmic body absorbs life energy and distributes it to the organs and glands. Dis-ease and imbalance first appear as energetic disturbances in the energy field before manifesting in the physical and mental bodies.

Polarity                                                                                                                                        Polarity Therapy is the art and science of stimulating and balancing the flow of life energy within the human being. The term Polarity relates to one of the fundamental laws of nature, namely the attraction and union of opposites through a balanced middle point.                                                                  The human body is an energy system and has positive and negative poles, and currents of energy that flow through them. Polarity Therapy concerns itself with the flow of a very subtle high-frequency energy which in the East is called prana or chi, but which is also referred to as life-energy.

Crystal Healing
Crystal Healing is the art of laying on stones and crystals in coordination with the body’s energy field, energy centers and energy pathways. These are also known as the aura, charkas and meridians.      Each crystal has a unique healing property derived from the minerals it is composed from. Crystals are capable of amplifying, focusing, directing, absorbing, diffusing and transmitting differing levels of energy.

Sound Healing
Sound Healing is a very ancient practice that has been used by the ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations and can be found in the Vedic scriptures of India and still used by the Native American Navajo people. The use of music and sound as a therapeutic tool is a simple, non-invasive process that can bring the mind, body and spirit into harmony and balance. This is realized by using different instruments of sound such as: tuning forks, crystal bowls, chimes, gongs or drums.
Everything in the Universe vibrates at its own individual frequency, including the human body and all of its complexities. We bring the body back into alignment and to its natural harmonious state by using the sympathetic vibrations and resonance of sound tools to clear and balance the body mind and bio-field

Aromatherapy, also called “Essential Oil therapy”, can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.  It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes and to enhance an individual’s innate healing process.

BODHI - Healing and Bodywork


Life Alignment Integration
An energetic session combining the Alphabiotic Alignment w various healing arts, and tools, that brings the brain hemispheres into balance and disconnects the body from the stress response. In this session, the Chakras and Bio-field (aura) are also cleared and balanced at the energetic, and subtle level. This is a cellular and energetic reset that will leave you centered, peaceful and clear. 
Sessions are 60 min.  

Alphabiotic - re-balance, alignment session

A 20 min rebalancing, and reset of the body and bio-field. A great weekly or bi-weekly follow up to full "Life Energy Integration"sessions. This works as a stand alone process as well, that will keep you in a state of balanced brain function, mental clarity and centeredness..

This is great reset that will bring you back to your own centered, "feel good" space
Recommended weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly depending on your stress and tension levels. 


Aroma-Zen Balancing Session (70 min)
With the ongoing and unreleased stress that so many are experiencing in their daily lives these days, many people find that life lacks balance, stability and a mental calmness. This is the balance and calmness one feels from being in a state of ease, poise, and centeredness, at the mental, emotional and even physical levels.

So what is the  Aroma-Zen Balancing Session?

Essential oils The session itself is a clinical approach to applying essential oils along energy meridians and reflexology points of the back and feet to help balance the nervous system and various other systems of the body. This technique improves wellbeing by reducing physical and emotional stressors and by supporting healthy autonomic function. The session uses Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils for an unparalleled grounding experience for recipients.In this unique session, 8 essential oils are used to promote relaxation, stress relief, immune support, and decreased inflammation. This leaves the participant feeling grounded, at peace, and with an overall sense of well-being and ease.Through a specific application technique, the oils stimulate homeostasis in the body via the energy or meridian lines. It is a gentle technique, extremely relaxing, balancing, and grounding.

**(during this session only the back and feet are exposed when applying essential oils, otherwise the client is clothed and  covered for the entire time.)  

Aroma-Zen Balancing can be a stand-alone service, or can be done as a prelude to massage. This will bring your massage to a whole new level!!)

Reiki / Crystal Reiki - Healing Session
A Reiki session feels like a glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Beneficial effects include relaxation as well as feelings of peace and well-being. A recipient of Reiki may feel a pleasant sensation of warmth or tingling during the session. A private in-person session is generally an hour in length. For the actual session, the client will rest comfortably on a massage table, fully clothed except for shoes. Loose, comfortable clothing is suggested. My sessions often include (hands on), the application of a light touch, and (hands-off), where my hands will be held slightly above the body. I incorporate both Usui and Karuna® styles of reiki in my sessions. The use of essential oils, crystals, and sound are part of my sessions as well.

Massage Therapy 
I offer an extremely relaxing, skilled, and therapeutic massage that utilizes a combination of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Esalan and Vibe massage along with Essential oil therapy. This is done on an "energetic healing" platform all focused to bring you to a deeply relaxed and stress free space.

My massage facilitates the release of physical tension in the body, as well as stress at the mental, physical, and energetic level. This release of tension allows the body to regain its fluidity, and to function in a much more relaxed state. I also facilitate a 3 oil "raindrop" application (see below) on clients with every massage…
You will feel amazing when we are through…

I use the highest quality, pure, organic massage oil, cream, and Young Living® therapeutic grade essential oils, and oil blends

Raindrop Therapy® / Chakra Balance (80 min)
My "Raindrop Therapy / Energy" sessions are done face down, fully clothed, with only the feet and back exposed. The sessions involve Energetic Balancing, Sound Healing, Massage, and Young Living essential oils, applied on various locations of the body, - primarily the feet and spine – to bring the body into structural alignment and realign the body’s electrical energy. 
This method is designed to bring balance to the body while providing you with a deeply relaxing, soothing experience.
A "Raindrop / Energy" healing is gentle. As your energy centers are aligned, you will also experience the release of “blocked” energy that often creates stress and illness. Therapeutic grade oils also break up bacteria as they penetrate the body. The oils send oxygen to the cells, and clear cell receptor sites for greater intercellular communication. A Raindrop session has the power to help heal the body emotionally as well as physically
In a raindrop session you are fully clothed and lying face down on a massage table. Only your back (spine) and feet are exposed. Feet are exposed only (when applying oil) otherwise torso, arms, legs and feet, are covered by a soft blanket
I combine my "Raindrop Therapy Sessions" with chakra and bio-field balancing work to create a truly unique, deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience.                                             Lawrence..
Raindrop therapy is recommended 4 times a year for general health**
