Jennifer Green works on a patient at her new studio

Sunstone Studio offers unique service to Golden

The idea of bio-energy healing might attract its fair share of skeptics, but Jennifer Green is ready to convince the doubters.

The idea of bio-energy healing might attract its fair share of skeptics, but Jennifer Green, owner of the newly opened Sunstone Studio, is ready to convince the doubters.

“Come in for a free consultation and I’ll kind of give you an idea of what the healing is all about. Just let me work on you and you’ll feel it,” Green said. “Everybody is (skeptical at first).”

Bio-energy healing is a non-invasive and mostly touchless form of healing that works with your body’s energy to remove blockages caused by trauma, stress or injury.

“It’s almost like a beaver creating a dam. Trauma, stress or an injury would cause a dam in your energy. I’m essentially going in and removing that dam so that the energy begins to flow freely and you start to feel great,” Green said.

Green became a believer herself when the healing process helped her through a difficult time.

“I had severe depression and anxiety and nothing had worked for me. I was on quite a bit of medication for both and I was in a pretty bad place,” Green said. “I tried a lot of different avenues for healing and nothing was working for me until I found bio-energy at which point it changed my life completely within the span of two months.”

After that, Green quit her job as a flight attendant in order to share the healing power of bio-energy with others.

Kristie McGregor works at Sunstone as a therapeutic yoga instructor and physiotherapist. She leads one on one therapeutic yoga sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays by appointment and has been practicing physiotherapy in Golden since 2010 and recently began to include the concept of yoga as a form of rehabilitation after completing her yoga teacher training in India in 2011.

“It was really neat to see how people were improving and how it was kind of an overall improvement in their lives,” McGregor said about mixing physiotherapy with yoga. “I realized this really works together…I was looking for sort of a bridge to that gap and that’s where the yoga therapy comes from.”

In addition to Green and McGregor, the studio also hosts workshops from three other yoga instructors, a certified spa practitioner and a motivational mentor.

The studio is also planning to lead a free yoga class for kids starting June 18 at the farmer’s market, as well as a class for guys called Broga.

“We’re trying to get something that will cater a little more to the genre. It’ll be a little bit tougher of a class, more holding poses, none of the namaste stuff,” said Green.
