Be mindful in this space and please speak in low tones. You may hang your coat and remove your shoes at the door. Be sure to keep any valuables with you and head over to the front desk. There you'll be greeted by your hostess. Aya will confirm your reservation or share the menu of services if you are walking-in. After signing our liability waiver (first visit only), you may help yourself to a cup of tea and have a seat in the waiting area. If you are attending a yoga class, please arrive 5-10minutes early to settle in. Enter the yoga salon and grab any props you may need from the prop shelf, on your way to a mat. Clean yoga mats are laid out when you arrive, choose one or place your own on top. Please alert your instructor of any injuries or conditions that could effect your yoga practice or cause you to need support, BEFORE class begins. Yoga clothing is the best attire for accessing all of our services. For a full acupuncture treatment, the therapist will need access to your arms and legs. Please wear clothing you can easily roll/pull up, to get the most out of your treatment. We are equipped to take credit cards, but prefer CASH for practitioner gratuity.

12pm-4pm :: Community Acupuncture :: Edwin Alvarez, Lac :: Book a 1hr treatment online or Walk-in for 30 minute Auricular (ear) acupuncture
$25 Haji Treatment :: (MUST BE BOOKED ONLINE) fill out our short intake form and receive a 1hr treatment, designed specifically to address your health concerns. Our acupuncturists can confront a wide variety of health conditions by placing needles at certain points on the hands, arms, feet, legs and head. This is known as "distal acupuncture" Allowing the practitioners access to your arms and legs, will give them more treatment options and increase the likelihood that you will leave feeling better. This form of treatment is recommended for both chronic and acute health challenges. Please dress accordingly or bring a change of clothes (shorts + tee). SCROLL DOWN TO BOOK 60min COMMUNITY ACUPUNCTURE APPOINTMENT or WALK IN FOR 30-45min AURICULAR TREATMENT.
Auricular (ear) acupuncture :: Ear acupuncture is a great way to experience acupuncture for the first time. The ear is actually a microcosm of the whole body. By placing needles at specific points on the cartilage of the ear, our therapists can support you in restoring yourself and feeling better, fast. If you are curious about the practice or maybe nervous about needles, try this minimal treatment style and ease into full treatments down the road. Ear acupuncture is great for maintaining balance within the body, supporting the body in detoxing from addictive substances, habits and emotions and it's a great way to restore + relax! Check out the options below and try an auricular treatment today! While we do allow walk-ins for auricular acupuncture, we ask for your patience as there may be a wait for service. Reservations are prioritized.
$20 Detox Treatment :: 10 needles (5 in each ear) :: Our therapist places up five needles in the outer cartilage of each ear, and you rest for up to 45 minutes while laying back in our comfortable zero-gravity chairs. While the needles work to stimulate your body's ability to rejuvenate itself (especially liver, kidneys + nervous system) you may fall asleep, experience a meditative state or just feel calm and relaxed.
$10 Balance Treatment :: 4 needles (2 each ear) :: Designed to open up the energy channels in the body and regulate the flow of energy throughout. Lay back and relax, while observing sensation and small changes within the body. Our zero-gravity chairs and cozy blankets will keep you comfortable while you rest for 20-30 minutes and get up refreshed!
$5 Needless Acupuncture (Ear Seeds) :: Small black seeds from the Vaccaria plant are secured on the ear with a piece of adhesive tape over specific acupressure points. The continuous mild pressure they exert is amplified by stimulating the seed or pellet with a few seconds of fingertip massage every few hours. Ear seeds are non-invasive and do not puncture the skin, but provide effective anxiety relief, suppression of cravings and gentle support for the body + its systems. Get ear seeds and "keep it moving." You don't have to lay down to feel the effects. This is a great on-the-go treatment and the adhesive may last up to 3 days! You may also ask for ear seeds to be placed post-acupuncture to keep that WOOSAH feeling going after you leave the salon.

Our $25 sessions include a short consultation with the therapist and 45-60 minutes rest time for you. Acupuncture with a revolving roster of skilled community-partners is offered from 12pm-4pm every Sunday.* Reservations are required. Please note: you may WALK-IN for a shorter, auricular (ear acupuncture) session. Walk-ins may incur longer wait times.

REIKI ENERGY HEALING with Angelana Grant + Courtney Smith
Reiki is administered by "the laying on of hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" (also known as Prana or Qi) flows through us and stimulates our aliveness. If our "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely feel stressed and get sick. When the vital life force is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki is a healing art that offers you a chance to relax deeply, while tuning in to the subtle sensations inspired by the attunement. Treatment is given while you lay on a massage table, fully clothed. You will feel light touches and the movement of energy throughout your body. Relax and fall into your witness consciousness for best results.
Angelana Grant + Courtney Smith are skilled Reiki Practitioners who share the privilege of supporting the energetic health of the Haji Healing Salon community.
Courtney offers 30 minute sessions for $35 (60 minute sessions for $65 by special request) every second + fourth Sunday while Angelana is with us every first + third Sunday.
Book an appointment today, to start feeling the many benefits of Reiki attunement.
CHAIR MASSAGE + BODYWORK

He is very communicative during session, regularly checking in to make sure you are receiving the right amount of pressure. His final touch at the end of your treatment is a beautiful lavender-scented face and head massage that will leave you BLISSED OUT! Post-massage he'll even ask you for feedback, so he can continue improving his healing art. The chair is no compromise with Tim, as his goal is to work your whole body. Still, if you'd prefer a table massage, you may always request one for a $5 up-charge. Tim is with us 2nd + 4th Sundays.

Divination Counseling with
Deidra Sommerville :: 4th Sundays
Deidra has been an initiated priestess of OSHUN for nearly 16 years. She has studied as a diviner and ritual practitioner under the apprenticeship of master diviners and elders in several branches of the Yoruba and Edo spiritual systems. Deidra uses cowrie shell divination in her counseling sessions, as her practice derives from the Afro-Cuban Lukumi tradition.
Through the ritual use of prayer and alignment with the energies of the Orishas, ancestors, benevolent accompanying spirits and the person's first Orisha, Deidra addresses any impediments revealed by the Ori (enlightened self) of the client. She then assists clients in realigning with their divine purpose. Deidra enjoys helping her clients embrace and celebrate the aspects of their spiritual profile that are supporting their growth and evolution. Her sound guidance and helpful tools enhance the spiritual health and wellness of each person she counsels.
Receive counsel from Deidra every fourth Sunday. 30min sessions are $30.
Sidereal Astrology Counsel with Dayna Lynn Nuckolls:
The People's Oracle :: 2nd Sundays
While classical tropical astrology is based on the orientation of the Earth relative to the Sun and planets of the solar system, sidereal astrology deals with the position of the Earth relative to both of these as well as the stars of the celestial sphere. The actual positions of certain fixed stars as well as their constellations is an additional consideration in the horoscope.
To learn more about this Zodiac chart and your position within it, check out Dayna's website via the link below. Be sure to make your reservation to get counsel with The People's Oracle every 2nd Sunday of the month at Haji Healing Salon. 30min/$30.
