Ariya Gaia Reitan at 2 years old
Having always been interested in the human body and the way it works, Ariya began her journey with the study of Swedish massage. She attended the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts and was awarded her massage therapy diploma in 1997. Fresh out of school, she opened a successful practice.
Ariya soon realized that massage and just working the tissue was not enough, so she began the search for more tools that would help her gain access to the holistic being, the body and mind. During that process Ariya studied systems including Reiki, La Stone Therapy, Crystal Light Therapy, Integrated Energy Therapy, Reiki, Marconic Energy Healing, Ortho-Bionomy and Thai Yoga massage just for starters.
The big “ah-ha” moment came with the discovery of sound! Ariya had the opportunity to study with Tom Kenyon and Jonathan Goldman, which forever impacted her direction in bodywork. Ariya has since continued her studies with shamanic drumming, different tuning fork systems like Acutonics, crystal bowls, Tibetan metal bowls, gongs and the now she offers the art and practice of mantra therapy through the lineage of Namadeva Acharaya – Thomas Ashley Farrand taught by Gretchen Carmel (Rajeshwari)
Creating Complete Healing Experiences
In her 26 years of experience, she feels that utilizing sound in treatments created an opportunity for clients to release right down to the cellular level. The application of crystal singing bowls, gongs, tuning forks, etc. proved to be successful tools in assisting in complete healing experiences for most clients.
Ariya began leading toning and mantra groups 2018 and a new form of working with light and sound began to be revealed. She discovered that she could access the higher self connection to the astral body and is able to pass this information on to the client in real time. In this way it allows the client to participate and integrate their healing potentials at the time. This is how LightStreaming came about.
Ari Sionainn Rei
Ari Sioanainn Rei began the study of sound and music at the age of eleven. To him the most fascinating aspect of music was feeling the subtle sounds and the frequencies that coexisted within these sounds. Throughout his adulthood he continued his love for music through the study of wind instruments, electronic and stringed instruments. Since being very athletic and having a natural curiosity, Ari became intrigued with the human body and its relationship to gravity and subtle forces animated it.
In 1980 Ari Sionainn Rei ( Sensei Reitan as he is known in Aikido circles) discovered an art called Aikido (the way of harmony). It’s a Japanese martial art created to facilitate harmony with mankind and nature..
He continued to train in Aikido and other traditional life giving martial arts, preceding to then open his own dojo ( A sacred place to practice the way ) in 1999. Since the year 2000, Sensei Reitan has studied and incorporated into his teachings of Aikido and healing practices, brain wave training, energy healing, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, tuning forks, toning, and working crystal grids. He also practiced and taught Reiki at the master level in 3 different systems. He then began teaching spiritual awakening and awareness classes which were based on finding the connection with source energy within Ones Self. He has continued to facilitate mediation classes and teaching his students how to understand and feel subtle energies in and around the body.
On a Quest for Greater Self Development
In a quest for more personal development he added yoga to his daily life. In 2011 he attended yoga teacher training and began incorporating and teaching yoga. He felt this offered a more balanced and well-rounded approach to achieving harmony in his teachings. In his approach to healing he feels that by adding sound, light and movement individuals can access healing on all levels and in doing so, physical and emotional clearing can integrate simultaneously.
The Sun’s Frequency
In 1999 Ari began teaching a powerful meditation program, a week into the program he began to see what appeared to be the sun in is inner vision. What he saw was a very bright spherical light which maintained it’s brightness and integrity with eyes open or closed. This light maintained itself for over a year then slowly vanished. He used to joke that he could copy the sun’s frequency and use it for healing, today this feels like a reality.
