Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. A form of alternative medicine, aromatherapy is gaining momentum. It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function. There are a wide number of essential oils available, each with its own healing properties.
A chakra — the Sanskrit word for "wheel" — represents a focus or concentration of energy in the body. There are seven different chakras, corresponding with seven locations in, on and around the body. Each of these Chakra centers governs a unique emotional and spiritual state. At Houston Yoga and Ayurveda we determine which Chakras are opened and closed and provide the right balance for you.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Sharon Kapp is a registered Usui and Tibetan Reiki Master.
Healing through the Wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda
Acupuncture is a practice of insertion very thin sterile needles through skin at therapeutic points on your body. This treatment is closely related to marma. When performed by trained, certified, and licensed professionals, acupuncture is very safe with minimal complications or side effects
Vedic Astrology, or Jyotish, is one of the oldest sciences on the planet and considered a relative of astronomy. It is an important and valuable part of the ancient Vedic texts. This complex, logic-based, and also intuitive science, has survived thousands of years in India’s Vedic tradition and is still considered a highly valuable tool of guidance and life insight. It is not a religion, but rather a philosophical understanding of human and cosmic existence. In Sanskrit, Jyoti means light. Essentially, the study of jyotish is the study of light and how we interact with the cosmic light—within us and within the cosmos. Vedic astrology, or the sidereal approach to astrology, casts charts differently than Western, or Tropical astrology. Houston Yoga and Ayurveda provides special events to understand this ancient science where personal horoscopes can be cast.
Marma therapy is an ancient Indian practice whose focus is the manipulation of subtle energy (prana) in the body for the purposes of supporting the healing process. Marma therapy is based on the utilization of 107 points in the body which are considered to be access points to body, mind and consciousness. Knowledge of Marma allows the practitioner to influence the flow of prana through both the gross and subtle bodies for the purposes of restoring health and peace of mind. Marma therapy is the original point system of healing in the body. As it spread out of India it influenced the development of Chinese acupuncture.
The most amazing magical experience! I was visiting from Fl and was interested in Reiki. My girlfriend who lives in Texas suggested Houston Yoga & Ayurveda. We made appointments for Reiki with Sharon. I can't even describe it you will just have to try for yourself! I loved it so much I even brought my 13 year old daughter to experience it. The staff is incredible all around. You can enjoy the crystals, Angel cards and even delicious tea. I can't wait for my next trip back to Houston! Sharon will definitely get a visit from meType your paragraph here. Lee L.

Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the person's health.
For example, reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the bladder. When a reflexology practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it may affect bladder functioning.
