Creating Calm helps adults, teens, and children to reduce stress and anxiety, creating better health and healing to those of all ages who are searching for a more balanced, fulfilling life.

  • Meditation: Calm Bodies Calm Minds

    Children with special needs, including those with autism spectrum disorders, sometimes feel excessive stress from day to day activities that can affect their ability to cope. Meditation can help children address their anxieties making each day more manageable and less stressful. Designed specifically for those with special needs, this class incorporates various calming techniques, including breath work, guided meditation, gentle yoga stretches, walking and dance meditation. Over time, each student will begin to tune in to what helps them to calm their bodies and their minds during times of stress. Class space is limited, open to all levels.

    Private Reiki and Meditation Sessions

    Reiki is a safe and effective healing treatment for children, teens, adults, the elderly and those with special needs. We provide private Reiki treatments for ages six through adulthood.

    Private one-hour sessions for children, teens and those with special needs are generally a combination of yoga, meditation, breath work, self-healing techniques and Reiki which all help to calm, relax and heal the whole individual. The Reiki portion generally last 30 minutes. We end the session with open discussion on how and when to use the meditation tools during times of stress. Depending on the age of the child, parents may be present in the room during a Reiki session.

    Some benefits to treating children and teens with Reiki are:

    • Improve concentration
    • Enhance relaxation and sleep
    • Reiki is calming and balancing
    • Encourage self-awareness and enhances self-esteem
    • Reiki can help with emotional and physical issues (but does not replace consulting your doctor).

    Contact Marci to set up a private session.

“I have a 10 year old son with autism and he started attending Marci’s class about a year ago. At the beginning, I didn’t think he would be able to sit still long enough to pay attention and follow the meditation steps. Her kindness and patience really connected with him and now he can’t wait to get there each week. Given his limited language skills, she provided a picture schedule with visuals so that he can understand the poses and routine. We now see him carry over some of the techniques in school which really helps when the day gets challenging. His teachers have even built some yoga time into his day which helps him to slow down and stay focused. I would definitely have a child with or without special needs give Marci’s class a try.” – S.L.
