Therapeutic Massage: The moving of the soft tissues using techniques such as kneading, sliding, pressure, vibration & stretching. Benefits include pain relief, relaxation, improved circulation, cellular nutrition, relief from effects of stress, relief from sports injuries.
Cranial-Sacral Therapy: A simple approach for achieving structural and systematic balance. While relaxing, fully clothed, on a massage table, the therapist uses light touch to hold points of tension along the scrum, spine, and cranium. This allows the release of tension, enables proper alignment, and aides nervous system in attaining balance. Can reduce symptoms of headaches/migraines, pain, ADD, numbness in hands/feet, autism and lazy eye, to name a few benefits.
Rain Drop Therapy: This technique involves dropping essential oils directly onto the spine from about 6 inches above the body. The oils are often worked along the spine using light strokes with the fingers which stimulate nerve impulses and disperse the oils along the nervous system. In this way the body is brought into balance and the energy centers can be cleared and re-aligned. Also helps reduce spinal infloammations and kill viruses that hibernate along the spinal column, as well as help strighten any spinal curvatures.
Reflexology: This therapy began in 1917 and deals with the principle that there are refex areas in the hands and feet, which corresponds to all the glands, organs & parts of the body. Since there are 7,200 nerve endings in the foot, our feet are our barometer. Releasing tension in this area can trigger one's body in removing waste, ensuring proper nerve flow, thereby aiding in health.
Lymphatic Drain: This therapy is a method of stimulating your lymph and body fluids. A gentle hands-on procedure that will help eliminate fluid retention, clease your body, and eliminate toxins. It will stimulate your immune system, help you relax, and release stress and emotional truama.
Emotional Release: During this session you will lay on the massage table, fully clothed, listeneing to soft music, while essential oils are applied to different areas. Dring this session you may experience flashbacks or think about things in the past. If you could uncover and heal the root cause of your illness or emotional pain, would you?
