A deeply relaxing, profoundly transformative, and eloquently gentle technique. CranioSacral Therapy is used for a number of ailments including Migraines, TMJ, past traumas, learning delays, anxiety and depression, nervous disorders, behavioral issues, and of course; stress. When what you really want is to 'reboot' your entire system, this will deliver. CranioSacral Therapy focuses on the detection and release of fascial restrictions in the central nervous system, and the benefits are immense.
Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain.
The method engages the myofascial tissue and loads it with constant force until release occurs.To achieve this, practitioners can use knuckles, elbows, or other tools to slowly stretch the restricted fascia. The practitioner moves slowly through the layers of the fascia until the deep tissues are reached.
Massage is wonderful to receive both before and after delivery. Special care and consideration is given for women during this most sacred time.
Utilizing the ever-abundant life force energy that is all around us, Reiki is a form of healing touch that originally comes from Japan. It is healing, relaxing, uplifting and safe for anyone to receive to any time.
