Craniosacral Therapy

This is subtle, yet profoundly deep work. Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle form of hands-on bodywork that has its roots in Osteopathy.  The focus is on the Craniosacral system (CSS)- the membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.  The beauty of this work is that through deep listening and gentle touch, I am able to find and release areas of restriction, re-educate holding patterns and calm over-stimulated nerves.  I monitor the rhythm of the CSS to detect potential restrictions and imbalances in the body.  I then help balance the CSS to free up movement of the cerebrospinal fluid and get things ‘flowing’ again.  This improves brain and spinal cord function and has a direct effect on the central nervous system.  After all the gentle unwinding, clients often remark of how different they feel, yet seem surprised it was such a gentle touch to achieve the differences.  CST is really good for those overcoming auto accidents or dental work, and effectively helps migraines, neck & low back pain, emotional stress, TMJ, sinus problems, insomnia and fibromyalgia.  *Testimonial                  


Swedish Massage

Heaven. Relax and let your stress melt away.  Also known as circulatory massage, this traditional massage calms the nervous system, increases oxygen & blood flow, releasing toxins from the muscles.  It is relaxing, affecting the nerves, glands, and circulation while promoting health and well-being.  I use 100% Organic Coconut oil in this massage, which has many healing properties of is own.  *Testimonial



Deep Tissue Massage

A slow, deeper massage for those who prefer a firmer touch.  I allow the tissue to slowly open as more pressure is applied.  Passive stretches are integrated into this massage for your problem areas, opening stiff joints and contracted muscles. Cross-fiber friction is also used to help breakdown scar tissue from old injury sites, along with neuromuscular (trigger point) therapy. This therapeutic massage is good for those looking to release chronic muscle tension.  *Testimonial



Reiki Treatment (Healing Touch)

Of Japanese origin, Reiki re-balances the body's energy centers helping the regenerative processes for mind, body and spirit.  Also referred to as ‘healing touch’ some individuals experience tingling, pulsing or a comforting warmth with this treatment.  Reiki assists the body's natural healing qualities and alleviates stress on emotional, physical and spiritual levels. It helps peace of mind and promotes restful sleep, additionally giving relief from anxiety and depression.  In hospitals, it has been shown that surgical patients need less medication and have had shorter stays. This treatment is great for those who are new to receiving massage or find it difficult to relax, or those who are injured and are sensitive to touch.  Clients often feel profoundly calm and centered afterward.  *Testimonial



Mommy to Be Massage:

Mama Mia!  How exciting the time is before baby comes!  Mothers who receive regular massage during their pregnancy often have lowered levels of stress hormones and report less physical discomfort too. Our one hour session together will help mom relax as her body and life are making room for baby.  Therapeutic touch is very important during pregnancy as it helps alleviate aches and pains associated with pregnancy, and enables a time for mom to rest and relax, having that much needed “me” time.   *Testimonial
