Lukas’ aptitude for energy healing modalities manifested in his childhood.
At the tender age of 8 he was trained in Reiki healing by his mother – a yoga teacher and energy healer.
Having practiced many forms of martial arts with focus on internal styles like Tai Chi has helped to further develope his abilities.
However his spiritual journey started in earnest 6 years ago when he experienced a powerful week long state of Samadhi.
Needless to say the memory of this event has driven his life ever since.
These days Lukas teaches Kundalini Yoga, gives Reiki healing/chakra balancing.
Recently, in accordance with the Shiva-Shakti tradition of Tantra Yoga he has been ordained to administer Shaktipat Diksha.
Shaktipat Diksha is the highest Tantric ritual aiming at awakening Kundalini Shakti.
Here at Orion Lukas is sharing his healing passion by offering Chi Nei Tsang treatments.
Chi Nei Tsang literally means “working with the energy of the internal organs”.
It’s an ancient Toasit system of abdominal massage utilizing Chi energy, detoxifying and rejuvenating the internal organs.
Apart from that CNT treatments relieve suppressed emotions and energetic blockages thus being capable of producing profound transformational results.
CNT is particularly useful for people undergoing various detox programs.
Gualter Sarraiocco – Gualter goes by his Sanskirt name ‘Baskara.’
Baskara has spent half of his life traveling from Asia to the American continent in search of the knowledge from the ancestor traditional healers. His main teacher is the Vaidya Swami Joythimayananda from whom he received the deep training in Ayurvedic Abyangam massage. Baskar followed his intuition and learned Vinyasa Yoga, Indian Vedic astrology, Cupping Therapy, Tantric practices, and Shamanism.
Gualter will be offering healing at Orion through his unique style of cupping therapy. What is Cupping therapy? Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People receive treatment for many purposes to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. Baskar combines massage, cupping and Vedic astrology to access hidden “memories” the body carry and heal past traumas in the physical body. Cupping is a great way to alleviate the heaviness of family karmic “luggage”, and help remove unconscious memories from previous life’s karmas.
