Every session is always from a CranioSacral Therapy point of view.
Then, integrating in other techniques as needed.
Treating your body as a whole and treating what we find.
* CranioSacral Therapy
* Lymph Drainage Therapy
* Visceral Manipulation
* Assisted Stretching
* Postural Alignment
Listed below are some of the techniques offered with a description and their benefits. Scroll down to find the technique you are interested in learning more about.
* CranioSacral Therapy: This is a light touch noninvasive technique that works deeply! Your craniosacral system is the membrane around the brain and spinal cord. Within this membrane is cerebral spinal fluid which fills and empties around 6-12 times per minute. Since this is part of your central nervous system, if there are imbalances here, it reflects into the body. CranioSacral Therapy also works with fascia and all the connective tissues in the body. Basically, fascia is the outer covering around all muscles, bones, organs, arteries, brain, spinal cord, etc... It may change names but essentially it is one continuous sheath from head to toe. If the fascia is tight around a muscle, then the muscle won't be able to relax.

* Myofascial Release: Is a safe and highly effective technique that produces consistent results in the reduction of pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, restrictions in range of motion, women's health and much more. Fascia is a connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web from head to toe without interruption. When you buy chicken breasts at the store, there is an elastic outer covering. That's fascia! Basically everything in the body has an outer covering and connective tissue. Like an internal stocking. Trauma, posture or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia, resulting in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones and organs. One example would be the days when pantyhose got crooked. Or a sock twisted around the ankle. It's tight and uncomfortable, but you can still walk around. This technique straightens your internal stocking. You can "massage" something all you want but, until the fascia is released, the muscle will continue to go back to being tight and painful.
* Lymph Drainage Therapy: Your lymphatic system is your immune system and considered another circulatory system. Your arteries take fresh blood out into the body and the veins bring the not so fresh blood back to the heart. The veins are selective about what they will bring back to the heart, so your lymphatic system filters and cleans waste before dropping it back into the blood stream. It does not have involuntary muscle contractions to move waste materials out. The three best ways to do this are exercise, nutrition, and manual therapy.
~Regular Cleansing and Detoxification ~Lymphedema
~Pre and Post Surgical Care ~Skin Problems: Acne, Eczema, Scars
~Wrinkles ~Cellulite ~Fibrocystic Tissue ~Chronic Fatigue
~Chronic Pain ~Regenerates Tissues, Including Burns and Wounds
~Relief From Sinusitis and Bronchitis ~Reduce Swelling
* Visceral Manipulation: Viscera is the connective tissue that surrounds our organs. This tissue gets tight and restricted. After surgery, the viscera may not heal correctly and impair organ function or cause restrictions in the surrounding organs, muscles, or joints. The therapist feels for these restrictions while monitoring the organs' natural movements and rhythm.
~Swallowing Difficulties ~Digestive Problems ~Incontinence
~Headache Pain ~ Back and Neck Pain ~Whip Lash
~Shoulder and Hip Pain ~Carpal Tunnel ~Physical Traumas
* Assisted Stretching: The therapist guides the client's body through specific range of motion and stretches to improve mobility and reduce pain from injuries.
* Postural Alignment: Assessing posture and imbalances in the body by using a combination of all the techniques to level the hips and shoulders, reduce acute and chronic pain and create an increased sense of wellbeing.
