"WE HEAL TOGETHER"
OUr Landmark day of community healing is now held at 746 E 79th Street from 10am-4pm
Welcome to Haji Healing Salon! If you are planning a visit to our new space at 746 E 79th Street, here are a few things to note:
If you are driving, metered parking on 79th street is FREE on Sundays! To enter our sanctuary, please ring the doorbell and listen for the buzzer, allowing entry. 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. PLEASE SHOW LOVE TO YOUR HEALING-PRACTITIONERS! We ask that you speak in low-tones within the sanctuary, to avoid disturbing folk who are resting in treatment. WELCOME!
Schedule of Services
10am-11:15am :: $10 Community (all levels) Vinyasa Yoga with Aya :: This class consists of an energizing 60min vinyasa flow, followed by 10min guided, deep REST. A great start to the day! Reserve online to secure your spot in class, or drop-in to join us. ARRIVE FOR CLASS 5-10 minutes EARLY. PLEASE NOTE THE NEW POLICY: Late arrivals will not be admitted to practice. The doorbell/buzzer system of entry is disruptive to the class and with only 75minutes together, it is important we begin ON TIME. We appreciate your cooperation. We do not refund or credit missed classes. Yoga mats, blocks, straps and blankets are available to keep you comfortable in practice + during rest. Enjoy hot tea + beautiful community post-practice. Consider staying to enjoy a good book in the window seat, get a balancing ear acupuncture treatment, or inquire about other available services.
12pm-4pm :: Community Acupuncture with Khadijah Kysia, L.A.c. :: Offering 4 treatment options :: Book a 1hr treatment online or walk-in for 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 arms, hands, legs, feet 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). Regular clients, consider booking a STANDING appointment at the same time each Sunday - we can automatically charge your card.
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 walk-in between 12-4pm to receive one of our ear treatments.
- $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 WOO SAH feeling going after you leave the salon.
12pm-4pm :: $35/30 min of Divine Bodywork (chair massage) with Sister Toni Lightfoot. If you prefer to receive your bodywork on a massage table, we are happy to accommodate you for a $5 upcharge. Please choose TABLE from the drop-down menu, so we are prepared for your arrival. Sister Toni uses Shiatsu, Tui Na and Thai Massage techniques to warm, loosen and liberate our bodies.

REIKI HEALING with Angelana Grant
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine and energy work that has been adapted into varying cultural traditions across the world. The purpose of Reiki is to provide stress reduction, relaxation and energetic healing. Reiki is used to balance the chakras (energy wheels throughout the body). With blockages in the chakra centers, energy cannot flow freely. Angelana likes to describe Reiki as a deep cleaning of the emotional, and mental debris that we can't tangibly hold in our hands, but we (sometimes obviously) carry in our energy bodies. This debris from past traumas, outdated thought patterns, toxic family dysfunction etc., can wreck havoc on our energy body and be the cause of many symptoms ranging from depression to headaches, to chronic back and body pain.
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 has been a Reiki Master, practitioner and teacher for over 5 yrs. She loves to employ the magic of essential oils and crystals in her Reiki sessions, as these tools assist in dissolving mental, physical and emotional blockages and leave you feeling lighter, more balanced and grounded.
Angelana offers 30 minute sessions for $35 (60 minute sessions for $65 by special request) every third Sunday at Haji Healing Salon.

Sidereal Astrology Counseling
with Dayna Lynn Nuckolls
The People's Oracle
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.
