CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University. Using a light touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams - about the weight of a nickel - soft tissue restrictions are released around the central nervous system. CST can bolster resistance to disease and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction including concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI), migraines and headaches, chronic neck and back pain, stress and tension-related disorders, motor coordination impairments, brain and spinal cord injuries, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, TMJ syndrome, scoliosis, central nervous system disorders, learning disabilities, autism, ADD/ADHD and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
SomatoEmotional Release (SER)
SomatoEmotional Release is a therapeutic process of CranioSacral Therapy that helps rid the mind and body of the residual effects of past trauma associated with negative experiences. Our bodies can retain and isolate this trauma (physical, psychological, emotional or spiritual) forming an “energy cyst”. Although the body can initially adapt to the presence of this cyst, eventually the body weakens or tires of this accommodation and can develop symptoms of pain, dysfunction or emotional stress in response. SomatoEmotional Release techniques work to eliminate the cyst using CST and dialoguing to get to the root of the issue and encourage the body and mind to heal.
Reflexology is an ancient healing technique that dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. It stimulates specific areas (called reflex points) on the feet and/or hands. These reflex points correspond to every part of the body - internal organs, glands, muscles, and bones. Reflexology brings about deep relaxation and can help with many health problems by activating the body's own internal healing mechanisms. Recommended for balancing the body systems and regulating hormones.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing art that balances the flow of energy through and around the body, removing any blocks that may be present. This relaxing and non-invasive technique promotes healing and well-being on all levels - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
There are 7 main energy centers in the body, known as chakras. Each chakra correlates to specific body systems and functions, and our mental and emotional states. These energy centers can become unbalanced and lead to physical dysfunction in the body. Clearing and balancing the chakras through energy healing can provide relief from physical ailments and well as emotional and mental well-being.
