Your Healing Journey
Craniosacral Therapy (CST), is a gentle, hands-on treatment helpful in releasing stored tension and stress. CST was developed by an Osteopath. Gentle touch invites and encourages tension to release and re-balances your nervous system. Besides treating the overall body, there is a focus on releasing tension at the head, spine, and tailbone, the structures that surround and support your central nervous system.
Craniosacral Therapy + Mouth Work - 3 consecutive craniosacral sessions are required for this deeper form of therapy.
Want to go deeper? Craniosacral mouth work is a way of gently treating and releasing tightly held structures, including the "fight/flight" nerves contained within the oral cavity. Relaxation of these structures allows your nervous system to function optimally, to self-correct and heal.
Reiki is a form of energy medicine. It uses techniques for stress reduction and relaxation that can promote healing. It is administered by "laying on of hands,” (on, or off the body). It is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
2 in 1: CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY+REIKI - Blending therapeutic treatment of the physical body with energy work.
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on treatment, helpful in releasing stored tension and stress. Gentle touch encourages tension to release and re-balances your nervous system. Reiki is a form of healing that uses Universal energy to support the body’s natural healing abilities. Reiki energy can bring about relaxation and raise the body's vibrational frequency. Combining these two modalities, can support the health and function of the entire person.
Tension/Trauma Release (TRE)
TRE® is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension, and trauma. The exercises safely activate a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. Note: With TRE, usually a person only needs to be guided through the exercises once. After that, you can independently use this therapeutic technique to release tension/stress, as needed.
Have Questions About Our Services?
Craniosacral Therapy or “CST” is a gentle form of bodywork developed by Dr. John E. Upledger, an Osteopathic physician. CST uses light touch and holds to activate the body’s balancing and healing process. It calms the nervous system, affecting all other functions of the body. It does this by helping release restrictions that can enable your body to function more optimally, promote well-being, and strengthen its resistance to disease. This makes CST ideally suited to assist with treating many unwanted conditions.
When feeling tense, anxious, stressed, our body - mainly our nervous system- cannot effectively do its job of self-correcting and healing, leading to disease and other painful conditions. Craniosacral Therapy, or CST, assists the re-balancing of the nervous system, which positively affects the unique relationship the nervous system has with every function in the body. That is why CST can be of great benefit for treating many conditions such as digestive disorders, insomnia, headaches, and other conditions related to stress and tension.
For example: Can you recall how you feel when you are doing something you find relaxing, maybe taking a walk in nature, having fun with your children, playing with your pets, or leisurely enjoying your favorite meal with a loved one? Doesn’t your body feel more calm, relaxed, maybe a feeling of “ahhh.” Perhaps your problems temporarily fade into the background, or you come away with some inspiration? This is your nervous system in a state of balance. Can you compare that “ahhh” state to the way you feel when you are frantically running around, stuck in traffic, eating your meals on the run, bombarded with e-mails and texts to respond to, all the while trying to handle seemingly endless life situations? How do you feel? Do you experience any of these stressful symptoms?: headache, foggy thinking, digestive distress, insomnia, body aches and pains, face and jaw tension, a sense of overwhelm? This is your nervous system out of balance, in a “fight or flight” state. Craniosacral Therapy is a light-touch body therapy that can help balance your nervous system, facilitating its return to a state of relaxation where it can naturally rest, digest, rejuvenate and heal.
Reiki Energy Therapy
Reiki is an ancient energy healing technique that promotes relaxation and reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki is the Universal vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Practitioners access this energy and allow it to flow to your body to support healing. When your body is relaxed, your energy can flow more freely, stress levels can reduce, and immune function is enhanced, strengthening your resistance to disease.
What are Tension &
Trauma Releasing Exercises
Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises, often referred to as TRE, are a simple set of movements that assist your body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension, and trauma. TRE safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating, called a neurogenic tremor. This tremor allows your nervous system to relax and re-balance itself out of a “fight-flight,” tension state, and into the “relaxation response,” where it can naturally heal your body.
