About Our Treatments

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system — comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. CST improves the functioning of the central nervous system and many other systems of the body, such as digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory and circulatory, and has shown to help with the physical components related to post traumatic stress, depression and anxiety.

Feldenkrais Method is a somatic or body-oriented intervention that helps people reconnect with their bodies, learn ways to move with greater efficiency, and increase vitality, coordination, and achieve overall improved well-being.

Holistic Dousing is a biofeedback system that enables your conscious mind to link with your higher self — your intuition. Using a dowsing tool, this holistic method helps bring you back into equilibrium. When your body is in balance it functions smoothly and is able to heal itself.

Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft body tissues (muscles, connective tendons and ligaments) to enhance well-being. It’s effective for conditioning, stress, improved circulation and other health issues.

Lymphatic Drainage relieves swelling that happens when medical treatment or illness blocks the lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage massage involves gently manipulating specific areas of the body to help lymph move to an area with working lymph vessels, improving the flow of lymph fluid, and reducing swelling.

Myofascial Release is gentle held pressure applied to the many layers of fascia that hold our bodies together but can be distorted by life's many bumps, bangs and injuries, and stay that way until released.

Physical Therapy helps regain and restore movement and overall health, designing and monitoring a planned program using a holistic approach.

Reflexology is a type of massage that involves applying different amounts of pressure to the feet, hands and ears. It’s based on a theory that these body parts are connected to certain organs and body systems.

Reiki Healing channels energy into the patient by means of touch to activate natural healing processes. It’s effective in restoration of physical and emotional well-being.

Trigger Point Therapy releases or softens a muscle knot to reduce or eliminate the knot pain and associated pain. This release happens by applying various levels of pressure to muscle knots, and then stretching the affected areas through a complete range of motion.

Tui Na is a form of massage and acupressure using rhythmic compression techniques to break down scar tissue, relax muscles and tendons, and open the energy pathways. Tui Na is effective in treating trauma and injury by clearing the energy pathway for improved circulation and to speed up the healing process.

Zero Balancing is a mind-body therapy that uses gentle touch to reorganize the body's internal structure and energy to resolve unconscious tension patterns for relief of bodily discomfort and emotional distress.
