Craniosacral Therapy

Cranial sacral therapy (CST) Is a type of bodywork that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum (a triangular bone in the lower back), and spinal column.

CST is noninvasive. It uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve the stress and pain caused by compression. 

CST can soothe pain and release both emotional and physical stress and tension. It’s also thought to help restore cranial mobility and ease or release restrictions of the head, neck, and nerves.

Cranial sacral therapy can be used for people of all ages. It may be part of your treatment for conditions like:

    •    migraines and headaches

    •    constipation

    •    irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

    •    disturbed sleep cycles and insomnia

    •    scoliosis

    •    sinus infections

    •    neck pain

    •    fibromyalgia

    •    recurrent ear infections or colic in infants

    •    TMJ

    •    trauma recovery, including trauma from whiplash

  • mood disorders like anxiety or depression

  • difficult pregnancies

Reflexology

Is a type of massage that focuses on reflex points on the foot to induce a healing response in the corresponding organs. 

Addressing anything from headaches to sinus problems to stomach issues, if sensitivity or tenderness is experienced when certain areas of the foot are stimulated, it usually indicates bodily weaknesses or imbalances within the corresponding organ. With repeated practice of applying pressure and manipulating nerve endings (traditionally in the foot), reflexology can help to move the flow of blood, nutrients and nerve impulses to ultimately improve overall health and balance. In addition to manipulating the pressure points on the foot, reflexologists sometimes work on the hands or ears to trigger relaxation as well.

The Benefits:

    •    Cleanses the body of toxins

    •    Boosts the immune system

    •    Increases circulation

    •    Promotes healing

  • Balances energy

East West

It weaves together the yummy kneading techniques of Swedish massage with the fluid Eastern techniques that address the Sen Lines (subtle energy channels) and Acupressure points throughout the body.  Great to address specific pain or chronic issues as well as to experience a reset of your whole body.

Shirodhara

This is ancient treatment of India that nourishes your entire nervous system and restores the health of your bodily tissues.  Incredible for fatigue, arthritis, fibromyalgia, insomnia, anxiety and stress. It is absolutely fantastic to reset and realign and feel restored to balance.

 

What It Entails:

After receiving Marma Point Therapy where we massage and activate specific energy points associated with the various organs and systems of the body, you’ll lay on a massage table face up.  From a copper pot, a single and consistent stream of warm herbal oil pours onto your forward and over the back of the head.  As it does, you receive a specialized head massage to stimulate specific points. This is one of the most amazing sensations you’ll ever experience and the effects are profound.
