Swedish Massage- what most people think of when they think of massage. Long, gliding strokes, combined with kneading, tapotement, petrissage, etc., give that wonderful whole body relaxation. Massage will ease all your aches and pains, as well as relieving tension and increasing awareness of your mind/body. It provides safe, drug-free relief from the destructive stress and tension of our daily lives. Massage is good for a variety of injuries and other problems that affect muscles and connective tissue.

Canadian Deep Tissue- goes much deeper, using cross-fiber friction to loosen up those hard-to-get knots, focusing on a specific area of stress or pain.

CranioSacral-The craniosacral system is made up of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth, which make up the cranium, all the way down to the sacrum, or tailbone. This system influences the development and performace of the brain and spinal cord and an imbalance or restriction in it that can cause any number of sensory, motor or neurological disabilities.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle mode of detection and correction which encourages your own healing mechanisms . You also benefit from better health and resistance to disease. CranioSacral Therapy strengthens the immune system and helps to alleviate a wide range of illnesses, pain and dysfunctions, including:

  • Migraines & Headaches
  • Chronic Neck & Back Pain
  • Motor-Coordination Impairments
  • Stress & Tension Related Problems
  • Infantile Disorders
  • Traumatic Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Scoliosis
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • Emotional Difficulties
  • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Orthopedic Problems

Lymph Drainage-Lymphatic drainage is a hands-on techniques designed to activate and cleanse the human fluid system. LDT enables practitioners to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymphatic flow. These enhancements offer the precise rhythm and gentle pressure needed to activate optimal lymph flow. The lymph system is almost all just beneath the surface of the skin, so this is a very gentle technique. Its origins can be traced to 2 traditions- the research of Frederic Millard, and Emil Voder. Over the years, methods based on the discoveries of these two pioneers has been refined, honed, and expanded. Today lymphatic techniques are employed as standard scientific practice throughout Europe and continue to gain recognition in the US. Lymph Drainage Therapy is an original hands-on method developed by Bruno Chikly, MD. of France. Created out of his award-winning research, LDT takes traditional lymph drainage techniques and adds a new level of precision.
The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to detoxify and regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, recover crucial substances that have escaped from the blood, and maintain a healthy immune system. It’s a complex system comprised primarily of lymph vessels and nodes working in cooperation to accomplish these tasks.
Unlike the circulatory system, which uses the pumping of the heart to circulate its blood flow, lymph vessels rely upon hundreds of tiny muscular units (lymphangions) contracting throughout the body to propel the lymph. These contractions enable the lymph vessels to transport numerous substances (i.e., proteins, toxins, hormones, fatty acids, immune cells) to the lymph nodes, which can then process them. The action of these muscular units can be hindered or stopped, however, due to fatigue, stress, lack of physical activity, emotional shock, cold temperatures, infections, substantial swelling, age, chemicals, or food additives.

  • These are some the things lymph drainage will help:
  • Reduction in edemas (swelling) and lymphedemas of many origins
  • Detoxification of the body
  • Regeneration of tissue, including burns, scars (pre & post surgical), wrinkles and stretch marks
  • Relief of chronic imflammation (sinusitis, otitis, bronchitis, acne, allergies)
  • Symptom reduction for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia
  • Improvement of venous conditions, as well as muscle hypertonus and some forms of constipation
  • Alleviation of adiposis and cellulite tissue
  • Deep relaxation to aid insomnia, stress, loss of vitality and loss of memory
  • Relief of chronic pain

Reiki-Usui, Karuna, Gendai-Reiki is a laying on of hands touch healing system of incomparable ease and power. Reiki literally means “transmitting universal life force”. Everything alive contains and radiates Ki -the biomagnetic energy of the aura. This life force energy is the source of life itself and far older in concept and fact than any religious philosophy. Reiki is a gentle, non-intrusive touch-therapy that brings wholeness to the recipient and giver. It can restore the natural energy balance of the body. It complements the healing properties of medicine, massage, and other therapies. It relieves pain, speeds the healing process, stops bleeding, and relaxes the receiver. Respiration slows during a Reiki session, and blood pressure lowers; emotional calming occurs. It allows us to tap into the Universal Life-Force to improve our health and enhance our quality of life.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to use or receive Reiki. Because Reiki comes from God (or whatever you choose to call the source), many people find that using it puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion, rather than having only an intellectual concept of it. A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through you and surrounds you. Reiki treats the whole person: body, emotions, mind, and spirit. It creates many beneficial effects, including relaxation, feelings of peace, security and well being.
Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
It helps balance the natural flow of energy in your body, opening up blockages, and preventing disease.

KARUNA REIKI® translates to compassionate action. This system of reiki was developed by William Rand of the International Center for Reiki Training. The symbols were channeled by several Reiki masters, but William felt they had greater potential than had been previously accessed. He meditated on them and was guided to develop the attunement process and to call the new system Karuna Reiki.
Working consistently with Karuna energy strenthens our awareness and connection to the purest spiritual guidance, such as that coming from Jesus, Mother Mary, Kuan Yin, St. Germaine, and other Ascended Masters, angels, and archangels.
It can heal on the cellular level, heal past life issues, unconscious patterns, sexual and physical abuse issues, addictions, and relationships. It helps you connect to your higher self,develop good habits, harmonize your chakras, helps you to claim your power, and manifest goals, among other things.

GENDAI REIKI was developed by Dr. Hiroshi Doi from Japan. He brought over many of the techniques that were lost in this country but originally taught by Dr. Usui, the developer of Reiki. These techniques are mostly for your own personal spiritual growth- many meditation techniques to increase the Reiki energy flowing in you.

Reiki classes-either one-on-one or small groups. We just need to work out a time convenient for both of us. Reiki level 1-$100 (takes 6-8 hrs.), level 2-$150 (takes 4-6 hrs.) , Master level-$500 (takes 6-8 hrs), Karuna-$500 (takes 6-8 hrs.), Gendai-$200 (takes 4-6hrs). I will combine classes, depending on how much you think you are ready for. Let me know what you have in mind!

Three Heart Balancing- is a type of energy healing developed by Jaentra Green Gardener that balances the spirit, physical, & mental hearts. It is based on an integration of many different healing modalities that Jeantra has studied over the last 22 years, including Reiki, MariEl, massage, acupressure, reflexology, Integrated Awareness Technique, Neo-Reichian work, bioenergics, Supported Age Regression, Polarity Therapy, Ortho-Bionomy, hypnosis, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt, &Transactional Analysis.
ACTIVATING THE WAVE -The first focus of the work is activating the Wave in the body. The Wave is the rhythmic interlock of all the body’s pulses, including heartbeat, breathing, peristalsis, lymph, cranial-spinal fluid systems, muscular sensations, emotions, and sexual expressions. Disruptions of these rhythms interferes with our receptivity and ability to interact. When the interlock of these pulses becomes synchronized, our Inner Healer awakens. The first heart-spirit-is at the third eye, center for inner vision and intuition. The second heart is the physical heart. The third heart-mental or will-is at the center of gravity for your body-your hara-located below and behind your navel. If there is a disturbance in one heart, there is an imbalance in the other two. So when we heal one heart center, we balance all three. Since the physical heart is the main driver of all the rhythms of the body, the Wave’s first agenda is to make the heart rhythm healthy and strong. Once the Wave is activated, the body aligns itself with the gravitational field of earth. This natural alignment further speeds up the healing of the heart. Activating the wave does two other important things to help the body heal. It slowly and systematically rids the body of infections. Often the body stores infection by walling it off behind a group of cells. The Wave breaks down those walls and puts the infection out for the body to overcome. The other healing miracle of the Wave is to burn through scar tissue. Scar tissue is rubbery tissue that forms due to accident, injuries, surgery, or emotional assaults. The Wave dissolves the scar tissue slowly. For people with heart disease especially, releasing infection and releasing this scar tissue from the heart is life saving.
Then we “bake” the liver and kidneys- remove toxins from them. In our society, it’s a given that there will be plenty in almost every person.
I believe God’s love is the primary source of healing. I help facilitate, but the healing is actually between the client and God. As a human race we are all evolving, becoming better at accepting God’s love as our divine birthright. We have much to do to help each other along in feeling safe in love that does not disappear. We need each other, even though we have each other to blame for our hurts and betrayal.
The root cause of all diseases and accidents and injuries is broken heartedness.

Myofascial Release-Fascia is a tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three dimensional web from head to foot without interruption. Trauma, posture or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia resulting in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, osseous structures and/or organs.This technique consists of sustained pressure into the fascial restrictions.It will help headaches, back pain, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, TMJ, carpal tunnel, and many other problems.

Reflexology-is the practice of stimulating certain points on the feet or hands that have a healing effect on corresponding reflex areas in other part of the body. Based on the theory that our body can be divided into meridians, and working on one part of the meridian affects all other areas in it. No one really knows why it works, but it does!
