Organic Deep Tissue/Swedish Massage

Deep tissue massage and Swedish massage have been used for thousands of years to reach the deep, inner layers of muscle and connective tissue that often hold stress and trauma from events such as injury or surgery. 

Benefits of Massage include: Increases blood and lymph circulation, strengthens the immune system, stimulates the release of endorphins, speeds the removal of metabolic waste, calms the nervous system, reduces anxiety, lowers blood pressure, loosens tight muscles, improves muscle tone, increases flexibility & range of motion, relieves cramps & muscle spasms, reduces chronic pain, reduces swelling, improves posture, and promotes better sleep.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Lymph Massage is a gentle and effective technique that has proven effectiveness by stimulating the lymphatic system thereby allowing the body to build connective tissue, enhance immune response, relieve pain and sedate and relax the nervous system. This very light and rhythmical massage is used to clear congestion and promote healing of many conditions, including injuries, scar tissue, pre and post operative care, and inflammatory conditions. Most people can benefit from a lymph massage as it has unique therapeutic benefits unlike any other modality. However, you do not need to possess a medical condition to reap the benefits of a manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage. 

Preparation: The client will fully undress and lay on the massage table with covers keeping them from being exposed and will be given time privately to undress before and redress after their session. It is still recommended to come wearing comfortable clothes.

Shiatsu

Based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, shiatsu is similar in theory to acupuncture.  Shiatsu aims to balance and encourage the flow of vital energy within the body to promote relaxation and encourage the body's natural healing process. This is done by pressure being applied inward on the body instead of flowing along natural muscle formations as is done with deep tissue or swedish massage. A session is received fully clothed and may include touching, pressing, or holding of the body along meridians, stretching, external application of heat or cold, dietary and exercise suggestion. We offer both floor and table shiatsu session. 

Floor shiatsu sessions allow the practitioner to use their own center of gravity to enhance the quality and depth of pressure administered. This type of shiatsu is recommended for those who prefer to feel grounded against the floor and would like to explore deeper pressure with the use of the practitioner's center of gravity and range of motion. 

Table Shiatsu sessions are performed on a massage table and are recommended for those who have concerns or limitations about getting onto or up off of the floor or who have tension and/or health concerns that may make laying on a floor mat uncomfortable. 

 

Preparation: wear comfortable clothing i.e stretchy long pants, tee shirt with sleeves.

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a type of bodywork that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum and spinal column. The craniosacral system is comprised of the cranium, sacrum, spine and cerebrospinal fluid. A craniosacral session involbes gentle, light-touch therapy that addresses imbalances that affect connective tissue and the central nervous system by examining membranes and movements of the fluids around the central nervous system.  With the client fully dressed and lying comfortably on a treatment table, the therapist locates abnormal tensions, which are the underlying (and often unexpected) cause of pain and dysfunction, deep within the body, and gently supports your body as it works to correct these imbalances.  Considering the state of the central nervous system and the strain patterns in the connective tissue can influence every part of your body, it can have a profound effect on the body.

Preparation: wear comfortable clothing i.e stretchy long pants, tee shirt with sleeves.

Bowenwork Therapy

Bowenwork is a very gentle and non-invasive manual therapy that releases restrictions in the body. Based on methods developed by an informally trained Australian osteopath named Tom Bowen, Bowenwork is a complementary therapy that seeks to facilitate the body’s natural capacity for self-regulation and healing.  It is a dynamic series of moves over muscles, tendons and nerves that resets the autonomic nervous system.  It reduces muscle tension, stress, pain, and stimulates the lymphatic system to encourage improved circulation, lymphatic drainage and assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins from the body

 

Preparation: Expect to discuss your health history with your practitioner prior to your service. Complete any exercise regimens (if applicable) before your session and be sure to have drink plenty of water. wear comfortable, non-slippery clothes, preferably not jeans. Most importantly, be prepared to rest and heal!

Reflexology

Reflexology is the application of pressure to specific energy centers on the feet, hands and ears. Reflexology is based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all glands, organ parts and systems of the body. Stimulation of these points trigger the nervous system to exit  Reflexology helps the body to normalize its functions by promoting detoxification of organs and glands, boosting circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid, and releasing tension from head to toe. Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate reflexology may help with pain reduction, increased vitality, more restful sleep, and more balanced moods are common benefits.

Preparation: wear comfortable clothing i.e stretchy long pants, tee shirt with sleeves. Wear comfortable shoes that are easy to remove and put back on.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture uses very fine medical grade needles to stimulate the body’s natural healing ability, provides pain relief, and promotes physical and emotional well-being. Channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body and nourish the tissue. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up. Acupuncture unblocks the obstructions at the dam and reestablishes regular flow through meridians. Therefore, acupuncture treatment can help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in digestion, energy production, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.

Preparation: wear comfortable clothing i.e stretchy long pants, tee shirt with sleeves that give easy access to your arms and legs if needed. Eat a light meal or snack beforehand. Avoid vigorous exercise before and after your treatment. NOT RECOMENDED for anyone with needle or blood related phobias.

Acupressure

Acupressure originated as a form of traditional Chinese medicine bodywork. It is often described as acupuncture without the use of needles. Acupressure is the practice of applying gentle but firm hand or fingertip pressure to specific points on the body, while the client is laying down, to regulate and balance the body’s energy system, release blocked energy, release stale blood and lymph from tissue, and improve circulation. Allowing for pain, tensions and toxicities to be relieved before they manifest as illness. The goal of acupressure is a whole-being approach of mind, body, spirit and emotion to release, balance and strengthen all parts of the body and allow the individual to return home within themselves to discover their inner soul wisdom and create whole-being harmony.

Preparation: wear comfortable clothing i.e stretchy long pants, tee shirt with sleeves.
