Swedish Massage

Swedish massage uses five styles of strokes and has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function. The style is referred to as “classic massage”

Infant and Prenatal Massage

Gently nurture your yourself and your baby with massage.

Jade Stone Massage

Cold or water-heated stones to apply pressure and heat to the body. Stones are placed along the recipient’s back, retaining heat which then deeply penetrates into the muscles, releasing tension.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue is a type of massage used to access deeper muscles and connective tissue to help decrease tension and scar tissue.

Most commonly used for chronic injuries that involve the neck, back and shoulders but can be used on any area of the body.

Indian Head Massage

A form of relaxation massage that focuses on areas of the face, head, neck, shoulders, upper back and upper arms. Releases stress and tension.

Foam Rolling Massage

Release muscle tightness or trigger points.

Sports Massage

Sports massage usually focuses on a certain area of the body depending on the activity or sport involved. It can be done Pre or Post depending on the goals of the client. Pre event can help increase flexibility which will ultimately enhance their performance. Post can help in the recovery to help restore the tissues back to their normal state. Regular massage can help manage and maintain healthy muscles and prevent injury.

TMJ Massage

Pain from a jaw injury, arthritis, or fatigue grinding or clenching your teeth can be addressed with TMJ massage therapy.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation usually consists of Swedish Massage which includes gentle, smooth continuous techniques.The pressure used is usually based on the patient’s preference usually light pressure. The main goal is to increase relaxation and decrease stress!

Cupping

Cupping is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is 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 produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.

The intended suction can range from light to heavy. This, along with the movements performed and areas treated by the therapist will produce stimulating (toning) or sedating (draining) effects. It is very important that therapists be able to effectively assess the condition (physical, mental and emotional) of their clients, before the procedure, so they employ the proper application of the cups to produce the desired outcome.

These ancient therapeutic techniques can relieve tension, improve circulation, stimulate the nervous system, increase energy and boost the immune system…to name a few (read below for further details)! They can improve health and wellbeing on a physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual level. The treatments are intended and designed to balance, restore and harmonize the body and mind as a whole system.

• Reiki Energy Healing (pronounced “RAY – KEE”): An ancient Japanese healing system that when translated means “universal life-force energy”. The Master/Teacher is Attuned to channel this high vibration healing energy into the client’s body by gentle touch or hands hovering over the body. Reiki activates your body’s natural ability to heal by breaking through energetic blocks, restoring your connection to source and revitalizing the natural flow of energy in your body.

• BodyTalk WholeHealthcare: A system of healing that identifies the deep and underlying causes of illness and dis-ease by addressing you as a whole-person, and your whole-story, as you are today. The technique provides insight as to what is a priority to heal, based on your body’s needs. BodyTalk refocuses and promotes your body’s natural healing response by establishing clear communication within your body-mind, and removing interference. Traditional Chinese Medicine and Bioenergetic Psychology are the foundations of BodyTalk. These systems provide an understanding of the relationships of physical wellbeing and psychological wellbeing.

• Yoga Life Coaching: A powerful, purposeful conversation based on what is happening in the present to design and create your best life now. You have a past and you do not have to re-live it. Philosophies from the ancient Eastern teachings are drawn upon to awaken and elevate your consciousness.

• Essential Oil Therapy: Also referred to as Aromatherapy, this is a therapeutic technique that uses naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants, flowers, trees and other sources of nature to balance, harmonize and promote the health of your body, emotions and mind. In this case, the Aromatherapy is delivered via the high quality, pure and potent doTERRA Essential Oils (used only if the client has no scent sensitivities).

• Chakra Balancing (Pronounced “SHA – CRA”): There are seven main energy centers in the body, along the spine, known as Chakras. Each Chakra correlates to specific organs, endocrines and systems in your body. Chakras absorb energy that comes from your thoughts, feelings and external environment. If the Chakra is out of balance, blocked, or spinning in the wrong direction it can cause ailments and dysfunction within your body. This misalignment can also impact your mental, emotional and spiritual health. The Chakra Balancing technique clears, unblocks, resets and restore balance to the Chakras.

• Crystal Therapy: Also know as Lithotherapy, is a technique that has been used for thousands of years to harnesses the incredible healing power of gemstones and crystals to realign the subtle systems of your body. They create protection from low, negative or dysfunctional energy through absorption and reflection. When placed on or around your body the high vibrational light energy of the gemstone or crystal amplifies, stabilizes and restores your vital life-force.

• Sound Healing: A form of subtle energy therapy, healing is promoted through the creation of sound from singing bowls, bells and rattles over the body’s Chakras or around the body’s Aura (field of energy surrounding the whole body). Positive sound is a form of high vibration energy. It helps to facilitate shifts in brainwaves by providing a stable rhythm and frequency for the brain to attune to. This allows the body to shift into alpha, the relaxed consciousness state, or theta, the meditative state. In these states, deep healing can occur to reduce anxiety, depression, stress, blood pressure, pain and confusion (used only if the client has no sound sensitivities).

• Oracle Card Reading: A form of an intuitive or psychic reading conveyed through the use of a variety of card decks (Angel cards, Goddess cards, Totem Animal cards, Chakra cards, etc.). A card, or a series of cards, may be drawn to guide the healing session, or cards are drawn based on specific questions the client has.
