Shiatsu Therapy is a form of manipulation administered by thumbs, fingers and palms without the use of any instruments, mechanical or otherwise, to apply pressure to the human skin to correct internal malfunctioning, promote and maintain health and treat specific diseases.
Shiatsu can also be defined as “one point pressure” that combines many varieties of rhythmical and changing stimulation. The pressure is applied to the acupuncture points which are located on the meridians. The meridians are pathways of energy upon which these acupuncture points are located. Most of these meridians are connected to or associated with a specific body organ and function. The actual points themselves are areas on the meridians where energy collects and is focused.
The purpose of Shiatsu
Therapy is to help bring balance and harmony to the individual through the
techniques described. The premise is that once the individual's own energy flows
in a balanced, harmonious and unimpaired fashion, then his or her own natural
healing power is unblocked and will correct and heal physical malfunctions.
It has been said that Einstein used only 10% of his mind, and the general public uses only 3% or 4%. And that’s what the Silva Method is all about: Learning to use more of your mind. Dr. José Silva conducted 22 years of research prior to offering the first course to the public in 1966. The Silva Method is now being offered in 107 countries in 29 different languages, and boasts an estimated 14 million graduates.
The Silva Method trains the participant to function with awareness at the alpha and theta brainwaves, thereby increasing the right brain function, i.e., creativity and intuitive faculties. The result is that the graduate will use more of their minds for practical problem solving, resulting in a more productive, happy, and healthy life.
There are four courses: MC101 offers you the art of Controlled relaxation. It teaches you how to reach within seconds a level of profound insight in which the mind achieves extraordinary ability to control vital energy for the body, as well as aid in the solution of problems without stress or strain. This offers the individual increased efficiency, concentration, relaxation, self-control, creativity, and learning capacity invaluable to all of us in this high-paced, stressful world.
MC202 expands consciousness by improved image creation and visualization, further enhancing creativity and memory. These methods aid in the unconscious solution to problems.
MC303 uses the knowledge and experience gained in MC101 and MC202 to enable you to extend your controlled awareness into the subconscious. You will create mental tools to enhance your intuitive factor and to obtain information beyond the basic five senses. This “sixth sense” empowers you to develop creative solutions to any of life’s challenges.
MC404 allows you to experience the power of your own mind. You will obtain information intuitively about the health history of individuals being provided with only the name, age, sex, and hometown of each subject. This practical exercise convinces you of your learned inner skills and thrusts you forward to create the life you deserves and desire, and to make this planet a better world to live in.
Graduate meetings are conducted at The New Age Center the last Sunday morning of each month for those who desire to expand their talents and understanding of the method. Always call (845) 358-6448 to confirm.

SOMATICS—Building on the foundation laid by Moshe Feldenkrais, Thomas Hanna's groundbreaking work completely redefines the body's potential for withstanding decline. His gentle program for the mind and body proves once and for all that so many problems we accept as inevitable over time, such as chronic stiffness, bad back, chronic pain, fatigue, and, at times, even high blood pressure, need never occur if we maintain conscious control of nerve and muscle, replacing Sensory-Motor Amnesia with Sensory-Motor Awareness. The good news about Somatic Exercise is that most people simply do not have to become captives of age or injury. Once learned, this lifelong program can help almost anyone maintain the pleasures of a supple, healthy body indefinitely, with only a five-minute routine once a day.

Sound Therapy is a technique which involves listening in a relaxed state to selected sound/music in order to elicit mental images, symbols and deep feelings arising from the deeper conscious self. Healing takes place with a combination of sound/music listening, relaxation, and the responses generated by the stimulus.
Sound therapy employs
environmental sounds, non-traditional atonal music, silences and archetypal
sounds which have ancient significance. Pitch and rhythm solicit conscious and
non-conscious material. Through techniques of exploration of our inner space and
sound therapy we are guided into altered states of consciousness. Ordinary
perception and cognition are bypassed and regions of transcendence and mystery
are explored. By avoiding music imposed by our personal, social or cultural need
we feel liberated, non-attached. These sonorous images become objects for
contemplation, and we experience the wholeness of the holistic resonance.
Listeners experience symbols removed from the profane reality of everyday life.
This primal music has solved personal and collective problems, has fostered
creativity, therapeutic intervention, self-understanding, trans-personal
experience, holistic healing and personal growth.

A spirit art reading is a unique form of psychic reading that utilizes pastels on paper. Colors are taken from the client’s aura and information is channeled for the client’s highest good. This information forms a picture of the client’s future direction, giving insight for spiritual, emotional, and physical development. Angels, guides, and spirit healers often appear in the drawing as they give their messages. A spirit art reading is a piece of art that reflects the client’s true inner beauty and potential, and is a reading that can be kept forever.

Each person is a unique being and therefore may find his or her own path or meandering primarily through his or her own intuitive heart evaluations. Since the spiritual journey or awakening is one of shedding layer after layer until you arrive at your real essence (the full spirit of God within) you may need to have many spiritual experiences with different paths before choosing one in depth, and yet you must go on to freedom by honoring your own truth (and not be trapped by any one path) by tapping into the wisdom lying within you, which will guide you in your journey.
Spiritual Support Groups
This type of group meets periodically in order to explore, strengthen, and receive the support of others for one’s personal spiritual growth/practice, as well as to assist others in their paths.
The key idea is to develop
a daily spiritual practice suitable to one’s lifestyle and daily
schedule. Themes include such practices as meditation, spiritual reading,
discussion of spiritual topics, types of daily mindfulness techniques adapted to
each person. For more information, please call the New Age Center at (845)

The forms of the Tai Chi Chuan are a traditional Chinese approach to exercise, meditation, and personal growth. Practiced both for health and self-defense, its graceful, flowing movements are at the same time beautiful, healthful and powerful. Its practice promotes an inner calm and a tranquil attitude, enhancing self-awareness. Tai Chi springs from emptiness and is born of nature. It is the source of motion and tranquility and the mother of Yin and Yang.

Tarot is a body of visual symbols in the form of a deck of cards. It combines images with specific meanings that, like archetypes in our dreams, refer to the two levels of human existence: the outer (or everyday experiences in our lives such as love, worries, finances, creative enterprises, etc.), and the inner (or soul- developing experiences common to all people). Relying on right-brain intuitional data, and rooted in Western mystical traditions of Astrology, Kabbalah, Alchemy, and Numerology, its operation is based on the principle of synchronicity, much like the I Ching, and is similarly useful for receiving revelatory insight, or guidance from Above.
Through its interpretation one can gain awareness regarding such things as successful decisions, self-destructive actions, helpful partnerships, foolish attitudes, and so forth.
The study of God from a rational point of view, attempting to understand the Infinite thru finite minds.
THERAPEUTIC TOUCH is a laying-on of hands therapeutic technique, developed by Dolores Krieger, Ph.D., R.N., in the 1970s in the United States. It is used extensively by registered nurses in hospitals to nurture premature babies and to increase the recovery of some patients, including in the emergency room. Gentle
and non-invasive, it works on and above the body. Using a meditative process, therapeutic touch disperses blocked energy and allows the practitioner to channel healing energy to the client.
is a bodywork therapy developed by American medical practitioner Dr. Milton
Trager in the 1920s. It makes extensive use of touch-contact and encourages
the patient to experience the “freeing-up” of different parts of the body.
Tragerwork consists of simple exercises called Mentastics and deep,
non-intrusive hands-on Tragerwork, consisting of fluid, gentle, rocking
movements. The idea is to use
motion in the muscles and joints to produce positive sensory feelings which
are then fed back into the central nervous system. The result is a feeling of
lightness, freedom and flexibility.
The trance channel goes
into a self-induced trance and allows a spirit entity to speak through his or
her voice. An ancient practice, it was done by the Greek Oracles of Delphi. In
trance, the channel is better able to facilitate the spirit’s message without
censorship or coloring. Through a trance channel, a spirit can explore the
energy of a person or group, make observations about their relationships or
work, and examine past lives and present opportunities. It can offer a spirit’s
perspective of a world without judgment, and show how our lives are vitally
important to the progress of humanity and its place in the universe.
Breathwork is a natural technique of diaphragmatic breathing that can be easily
learned and patterned in the body. Its purpose is one of deep healing and
removal of emotional, physical and/or mental blocks. Transformation Breathwork
is an outgrowth of Rebirthing, Vivation, and other breath techniques. The
Transformation facilitator safely and gently guides the breather to a deep state
of awareness of oneself and one's connection to all of life.
Transpersonal Counseling is a counseling approach that incorporates the “fourth force” in psychology. This includes spirituality as a major factor to be united with modern concepts of psychology. It begins with the basic premise that we are more than our bodies, minds, emotions, and behaviors. The individual is understood to have a natural tendency toward growth and wholeness that includes transpersonal (beyond personal) levels of being.
As people learn to identify and release unwanted styles of behavior, those patterns can be transformed into constructive and creative energies. Everyday problems and situations are addressed as one moves on a spiritual path toward life-goals, self-actualization, and transcendent states of being.
Incorporating such principles as karma, mystical states, and peak experiences, a variety of tools may be utilized including meditation and prayer. By expanding on traditional concepts of self/Self, practitioner and client journey together to access vast realms of human potential. Jung and Assagioli (psychosynthesis) developed
brilliant systems that
began psychology’s “fourth force.” Progoff (holistic depth psychology) and
Maslov were other major contributors.
