CranioSacral Therapy


CranioSacral Therapy


CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that can facilitate dramatic improvements in your health and well-being. It was founded by Dr. John Upledger an Osteopathic Physician who did clinical trials and extensive scientific research at Michigan State University from 1975-1983 to prove the effects of CranioSacral Therapy on the body and how it works. CranioSacral Therapy releases tension and restrictions in tissue, both superficial and deep in the body. It helps to relieve pain and dysfunction while improving whole-body health and performance. This therapy can be performed while you are fully clothed while lying down on a massage table or it may be integrated with a personalized massage session.

  • Releases Tension

  • Relieves Pain and Dysfunction

  • Deeply Relaxing

  • Improves Whole Body Health

This therapy is deeply relaxing stimulating the Parasympathetic Nervous System and producing a state of calmness. People sometimes fall asleep during their sessions. CranioSacral Therapy can help with a wide range of problems such as TMJD (jaw joint dysfunction), Scoliosis, Lordosis, Kyphosis (curvatures in spine), headaches, neck and back pain, chronic pain issues such as Fibromyalgia, and other connective tissue disorders, concussion or traumatic brain injuries, PSTD, immunity and stress relief.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy


Lymphatic Drainage Therapy is a light-touch therapy using rhythmic movements on the skin. This therapy is recommended for relaxation, detoxification, pain relief, reducing edema and boosting immunity.

  • Increases lymphatic and blood circulation.
  • Relief of pain and inflammation, edema and tension.
  • Reduces recovery time after an injury and/or post-surgery.
  • Increases metabolism and aids in weight loss.
  • Improves skin elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles.

This therapy may not be right for you if you have any of the following:

  • Major heart problems.
  • Acute kidney problems.
  • Active blood clots, infections, bleeding and undiagnosed cancer or cancer patients without consult with their doctor.
  • Thrombosis
  • Thyroid Disfunction (untreated)




Reiki* is a light-touch traditional Japanese healing technique for relaxation and stress reduction that promotes the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Lifeforce energy, commonly referred to as chi, ki, or prana, flows through pathways in and around the bodies of all living things. Stressors and traumas of everyday life can impede the freedom of this energy to flow properly. Over time and if left untreated, the energy becomes more blocked along these pathways, and emotional, mental, and physical symptoms may occur.

Reiki works to:

  • Help restore the energy flow to its optimum state which supports the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
  • Addresses issues affecting the physical, mental, and emotional levels such as pain or stress-related conditions.
  • Reiki requires no religious beliefs, can do no harm, and benefits any age.

You will be fully clothed and lying on a massage table while the practitioner places her hands on different areas of your body.

*Your Reiki Therapist is certified and trained in Usui Reiki Holy Fire® III.

Cupping Therapy


Cupping Therapy


Massage Cupping is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a Baguanfa/Kangzhu Biomagnetic cups on the skin.

  • Increase Blood Flow

  • Increase lymphatic Drainage

  • Relaxes Muscles

  • Draws Out Toxins

The cups are positioned at the area to be treated and, depending on the type of cups being used; a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic drainage systemically. This process relaxes muscle and surrounding tissue, draws stagnation and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.
