Journey to Joy

Since the spring, I have been exploring the use of essential oils as a way to maximize life.  Never in a million years did I imagine I would be traveling this path. 

Exploring the oils began tentatively with the background question of wondering what I was getting into. Well, as it turns out I got into something that has dramatically improved the quality of my life. 

Last month one key oil changed everything. It brought JOY into my experience of life on a level I had never experienced or even knew was possible.

Other oils have brought other kinds of openings and are helping me address areas where I feel I am not being all I could be in this one short life. I am also currently noticing how more frequent use of the oils has an effect. It has come to my awareness or understanding that the oils help to recalibrate our ‘energy field’ which, based on my many years as a Shiatsu energetic bodyworker,  accounts for the shifts in states of being.

If any of this piques your curiosity–even just a little bit–I would love to talk with you and share my discoveries and possibly provide tools to connect you with your own joyfully fascinating journey of life. I hope you will take me up on this as I would love you to experience what I have experienced: An awakening of joy I did not know possible for the price of a movie for two. Only this ‘movie’ can run for the rest of your life (-:

To reach me, message or email me your email or phone number so that we can arrange a time to talk.


About HaraHarmony

Who am I? My name is Annemarie Marti and I have been practicing Shiatsu Therapy since 1987. During that time, my work has been enriched by meeting and working with many, many wonderful people. This work has allowed me many insights and perspectives on Shiatsu, healing, growing, self-expression and our relationship to our body and our planet which I now will begin to share in the Hara Harmony blog. The notion of being a healer came to me while I was in college and reading books about indigenous healing practices. In the mid-1970s I did not have a vision for how to pursue such a path and turned my desire to heal to our planet. It was not until the late 1980s that I found a way back, through Shiatsu, to my original desire to heal our bodies. As my journey with Shiatsu evolved, I began to see that there was a connection between healing our planet and creating vibrant health for our own bodies. The style of bodywork that I practice is called Shiatsu. Shiatsu is an Asian style of bodywork that evolved from the perspectives and teachings of Chinese acupuncture. Acupuncture brings to the process of healing, the concept of balancing, smoothing and rejuvenating the energies in our living, Human body. Shiatsu uses touch, no needles, to contact and move these energies called ‘chi’. In moving the chi, a Shiatsu therapist is able to help muscles to relax, the mind to quiet and well-being to return. My touch is firm to gentle~~you choose! We work together to create a great session for you where you feel refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated.
