Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle treatment that helps to restore and enhance body function. It can be used as a stand alone therapy or in conjunction with any of the above and in cases of: latching issues in infants, ear infections, sinus issues, learning differences, post concussion, neurological disorders, inflammation, lymphatic congestion, TMJ, migraines, sciatica, disc injuries, carpal tunnel, spinal stenosis and spondylothesis, MS, Parkinson’s, chronic stress, and anxiety. Craniosacral therapy is a wonderful way to provide support and cultivate peace during the end of life as well.

Applied Kinesiology Techniques

The process of gaining information from the body using an indicator muscle to challenge a neuromuscular response. A muscle should have the ability to contract and sustain a contraction. If it cannot, there is a break in the neuro feedback loop due to nerve impingement, strain/sprain patterns, stagnation of Chi and/or blood, decreased lymphatic drainage, fascial restriction, craniosacral restriction, or nutritional imbalances. Using applied kinesiology the body will tell me where the “break” is and how to correct it.

Acupressure & Cupping

Energy or Chi flows through channels in the body similar to the way blood flows through the vessels. This energy influences and sustains every system in the body. Improper flow or stagnation leads to pain and dysfunction throughout the body, especially areas of injury, trauma and scar tissue. Acupressure is a way to stimulate acupuncture points along the channels to restore the proper flow of Chi. In cupping, cups are placed on specific acupuncture points or areas of the body by means of suction to also relieve stagnation and pain, restoring the proper flow of Chi and blood. Both techniques effectively reduce pain and inflammation while promoting healing.

Lymphatic Massage

The lymphatic system has two major functions in the body. Working in conjunction with the circulatory system, it supports immune health and reduces the build up of interstitial fluid in the tissues. Lymphatic massage can be used proactively to enhance immune function and rid the body of toxins that can be released while cleansing or dieting. It is an effective and frequently prescribed treatment to reduce inflammation after injury or surgery, as well as inflammation that is present due to chronic illness.
