CranioSacral Therapy, a gentle yet powerful technique effective in releasing neck pain, back pain, and mental stress (among other things), is relaxing and deeply healing and is an excellent complement to traditional massage.
There is a core rhythm in the body created by the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid surrounding and protecting the brain and spinal cord. This rhythm is communicated throughout the entire body. Where there are restrictions, they will show up as a lack of motion or rhythm. By addressing these areas of restriction, the CranioSacral therapist is better able to treat the cause of problems rather than chase the symptoms. CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle method of detection and correction that encourages the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to dissipate the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system. The body also benefits from better overall health and resistance to disease.
Therapeutic Massage is a form of deeper tissue bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Therapeutic Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is possible after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, LD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness.
