11th Anniversary Fundraiser

September 17th marked our 11th Anniversary! We’re happy we’re still here supporting people in the ways we know how, with needles, massage, herbal medicine and community classes and events. We want to continue to serve the Bay Area but we need your help!

T H A N K  Y O U to everyone who has already donated!

Reiki Returns 

Shannon Snapp will return to Circle on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month to offer reiki sessions from 2-6pm. Reiki is a Japanese healing art that translates as “universal life force energy,” which is all loving and acceptable for everyone to receive. It is non-invasive touch that balances the body’s energy centers (chakras) to promote wellness and relaxation. We're looking forward to Shannon's return. This past spring she had many regular patients who benefited from working with her.

upcoming Reiki shifts:
October 11th & 25th
November 8th & 22nd
December 13th & 27th

30 min $35-$50
45 min $50-$75
60 min $65-$10

Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE)

Shauna Farabaugh’s TRE workshop was a big hit this past spring so she’s returning to Circle to teach again. About TRE & Shauna: Ever wish you could just shake off all your stress and shake out all your tension? You can!  TRE is a simple to learn self-care technique that allows the body to gently vibrate or shake, which discharges long held muscular restrictions and brings the nervous system back into a state of balance. TRE works to restore your resilience and bring more ease to your system.  And despite the word "exercises" in the name, this is not a workout.  The movement series is gentle and can be modified to accommodate a wide range of bodies and abilities.

Shauna Farabaugh is a certified TRE® provider and a certified somatic sex educator in private practice in San Francisco who specializes in supporting folx around pelvic pain, chronic illness, and disability. Shauna teaches publicly throughout the Bay Area and serves as adjunct faculty at the Institute for the Study of Somatic Sexology.  She recently published a book, Pelvic Pain Clinic, with mentor and colleague Caffyn Jesse.
