Integrative CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the function of the central nervous system and can relieve symptoms associated with:
Chronic Neck and Back Pain
Stress and Tension-Related Problems
Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
Assisted Stretching is based on Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), developed by Aaron L. Mattes, MS., R.K.T., L.M.T., is a gentle method of stretching specific (isolated) muscles while requiring the active participation of the person being stretched. Performing the stretch for no longer than two seconds allows the target muscles to lengthen without triggering the protective reflex and the muscle achieves a state of relaxation.
Myofascial Release uses light to moderate focused pressure and traction to release trigger points in the myofascial — the tough membranes that wrap, connect and support your muscles. These areas, though not always near what feels like the source of pain, are thought to restrict muscle and joint movements, contributing to widespread muscle pain.
Neuromuscular Therapy is also called Trigger Point Therapy and consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas of muscle spasm. The pressure is usually applied with the fingers, knuckles, or elbow for ten to thirty seconds.
Swedish Massage is the most common and best-known type of massage in the West. If it’s your first time receiving a massage or you don’t get massage very often, Swedish massage is the perfect massage for you.
Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Deep tissue targets specific issues or areas. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and 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.
