When we live for authenticity and truth, we are connected to a place of deep personal power; and this is exactly what is at the heart of integrated healing centre Silent Power. The inconspicuous penthouse healing centre in Altstetten has a natural ethereal quality that celebrates exotic design elements from the East. Silent Power offers treatments from many ancient and worldly healing traditions, as well as rooftop yoga and monthly meditation gatherings. It is refreshing to find Yvonne Waldraff and Biljana Sabally offering healings that extend beyond the conventions of allopathic medicine and yet complement it so beautifully. Among the essential offerings at Silent Power, shamanic healing sessions aim to remove energies that are inappropriately present and to return energies that have been lost. The elements and senses are awakened with crystals, burning herbs, drums, touch and messages that are received to offer guidance and remind us of our greater connection to all. Similarly, negative energies such as émotions, spirits, thoughts, projections or other psychic charges that linger in home and work environments are cleared to free the space and bring more light to those that dwell there.
For a hands-on treatment, try an Esalen or lymphatic drainage massage with Doris Bernet – a gracious and skilled bodyworker who has more than 25 years of experience. Esalen is a full body treatment that incorporates breathing and various elements of Swedish, Asian, Hawaiian and Polarity massage. Adapted to each client’s needs, the long strokes, passive joint movements and deep structural work on muscles loosen energetic blocks and create a meditative experience that leaves you feeling balanced and relaxed.
