CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY
Craniosacral therapy addresses one's core through subtle movement and energetic interface with the body's nervous system, accessed through touch with the bones of the cranium, spine and sacrum. The central nervous system resides within the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), sealed in the dural membrane which encases the entire brain and spinal cord ~ attached to the skeletal system at the cranium and the sacrum. The fluid has it's own pulse (slower, quieter, and distinct from the hearbeat and breath), which expands and contracts the spaces contained therein, providing nourishment for the nerve tissue and an optimal medium for the central nervous system's bio-electro-chemical interactions to occur within. Circulating from the cranium down the spine to the sacrum and back again, the craniosacral pulse was discovered by Osteopath William Sutherland at the turn of the twentieth Century, and further investigated by John Upledger who brought the art of craniosacral therapy into the twentyfirst century.

The intent of Craniosacral therapy is to listen deeply to the existing pulses and idiosyncracies of the individual's fluid waves, and to accent and manipulate the movements of the bones subtly, following the system's innate rhythms, to empathize a return to balance. The sutures of all the bones in the CSF system literally "breathe", expand & contract, interlock and rotate in a continuous dance with the other bones of the cranium and sacrum. The skull is not a single fixed bucket of bone but an evolving interlocked puzzle. Long term health problems and injuries, persistent stress, emotional trauma, and less than ideal ergonomics can divert the optimal flow and pulse of the CSF and have systems wide effects across the body. Craniosacral is an extremely gentle touch modality, rarely exerting more than a few grams of pressure at a time with the hands, that can have profound effects on wellbeing. Craniosacral therapy can provide benefits for a range of conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, depression & PTSD, headaches & migraines, cervical / spinal issues, arthritis, asthma & breathing challenges, sinusitis, insomnia, post operative recovery, and injury from emotional and physical trauma.


JIN SHIN ACUPRESSURE
Acupressure is a non-invasive healing energy therapy, utilizing energetic intention and primarily gentle touch, focusing on the points of the organ meridians of the body, common to Traditional Chinese Medicine and other Asian healing systems. Rather than using needles, connection is made with human touch. Energetic circuits ~ of Chi, the life force ~ are flushed and balanced out across the body. The client is clothed and points are accessed in both prone and supine position. Profound relaxation, energetic release and calm stillness can be achieved through acupressure. Five Element characteristics are examined and addressed within the treatment. Tui Na (massage) and Chi Nei Tsang (abdominal massage) are used in conjunction with the acupressure for a uniquely relaxing and invigorating healing session. "Jin Shin" accupressure is a sister art to Jin Shin Do and Jin Shin Jyutsu, all healing modalities that developed from the work of Jiro Murai in the early twentieth century, who in his own journey of self healing, rediscovered and reinvestigated the human touch component in energetic work with the organ meridians. Acupressure is both a consitutional therapy, benefiting the entire body, and a potent treatment for localized stress, disease, trauma, or injury. Acupressure can address energetic blockages, chronic pain, digestive issues, skin conditions, headaches and problems of eyesight, sleep patterns and isomnia, and recovery from injury, disease or medical procedure.


LYMPHATIC THERAPY
Lymphatic therapy is a rhythmic, stimulating bodywork of primarily light touch, performed on the supine body, addressing the lymphatic system ~ the body's immune transport and waste removal system. For those who are detoxifying or cleansing, recovering from illness, injury or medical procedure, or seeking to boost immune function, lymphatic therapy is ideal. This bodywork stimulates the natural flow of the lymph vessels through subtle massage across the skin, underneath which the majority of vessels lay. Lymph nodes (at the neck, shoulder/armpits, elbows, belly, inguinal region, knees and ankles) are addressed with deeper intent. The massage stimulates the circulation of lymph, with benefits including fluid drainage from face/sinuses, extremities and abdomen, reduced swelling of nodes and edemas, removal of toxins and wastes, stimulation of the immune system, accelerated healing, reduction of scar tissue, and removal of subdermal fat (in conjunction with palpate & roll technique promotes dissipation of cellulite).


DEEP TISSUE
A full body soft tissue therapy, deep tissue work accesses inner musculoskeletal and myofascial layers of the body in supine and prone positions. Penetrating pressure is applied to the complex muscle groups of the neck and shoulders (rotator cuff, bursa, subscapularis, serratus, rhomboids and levator, scalines ), hips, lower back and legs (iliop-psoas, adductors, abductors, rotators, piriformis, IT band and TFL, Erector Spinae, Multifidus). In conjunction with passive stretching, rhythmic joint articulation and percussion/chopping, a profound relaxing of the body is be achieved. Reduction of pain and stiffness, flushing of toxins, and improved range of motion are all results of the deep tissue massage.


SPORTS
For those with higher intensity work-out regimens, or who are training for or recovering from athletic events, Sports massage is ideal. This bodywork utilizes Deep Tissue technique at a brisker pace, with greater emphasis on percussive strokes, kneading of the muscles, stretches and deeper penetrating pressure, targeting areas of greatest stress
. Improved circulation, breaking up of scar tissue and fascial adhesions, increased flexibility, and decreased recovery time can be had with the Sports massage.


SWEDISH
The classic relaxing spa massage, Swedish uses bold flowing strokes (effleurage) in conjunction with focused work (petrissage) on detail areas to warm and loosen the body up and increase circulation. Rythmic pressure (tapotement), rocking and passive stretching release tension and improve flexibility and range of movement. I massage the body’s superficial muscles and fascia in both supine and prone positions using light to deep pressure. Improved bloodflow and oxygenation, flushing of toxins, reduction of stress and pain, and increased relaxation are all benefits of this massage.
