WHAT IS KAVANA?
Kavana pronounced Ka-Va-Na means Intention in Hebrew
Kavana for me represented what the business embodied – Intention. The intention of the client, the intention of the therapist, the intention of the practice. Everyone can give a massage. We all have the gift of touch regardless of our education. And it is therapeutic and potent, and powerful. When clients tell me that they don’t know how to massage, I always say, “That’s not true, of course you can, we all can.
Kavana is the intention by which our actions take place. According to the Rambam, the essence of Kavana is Awareness and Motivation. Wayne Dyer in his book "The Power of Intention" says that intention is not something you do, but rather something that you tap into - a force that exists in the universe.
So when it came to choosing the name of my practice, I asked myself, what differentiates my practice from that of others… and immediately the answer came – INTENTION and EDUCATION.
At Kavana Healing Arts Spa we practice the art of healing intention. We believe that in order to achieve healing, each treatment session must begin with therapeutic intent. To do this we conduct thorough client assessments and direct our heart toward the therapeutic goals of each and every client.
“An intuitive approach based on focused intention, deep breathing and healing touch, backed by sound training and thorough client assessment.”
