This gentle work positively affects the client's nervous system and supports the healthy functioning of all the other body systems by using the subtle rhythms and movements of the body.
It is particularly helpful for people who grind their teeth at night, have headaches and issues with their backs or are experiencing low energy for no specific reason. It is also wonderful for people experiencing emotional symptoms or moving through transitions in their lives.
Cranio-sacral therapy addresses health issues by working with the cerebro-spinal fluids that bathe the brain and spinal cord, the soft tissues within the head and spine, and subtle movement of the bones of the head and the base of your spine. The rhythms of the fluids, soft tissues and bones can be felt by a therapist's hands and can be encourged to return to their optimal way of being. Motion returns to the system and so does a greater sense of wellbeing.
Cranio-sacral therapy is given in a quiet setting. The client is fully clothed while lying on a massage table.
Shiatsu is a Japanese form of massage therapy. The word Shiatsu comes from two Japanese words - "shi" (finger) and "atsu" (pressure). In addition to the direct stimulation of pressure points along the energy pathways of your body, gentle stretching techniques are applied over a wider area of the body to integrate the point work and encourage the flow of Chi (energy) throughout the body. Shiatsu is a meditative healing art that honors the body, mind and spirit.
It is particularly helpful for people suffering from headaches, digestive disorders, back pain and poor sleep.
Shiatsu is given in a quiet setting. The client is fully clothed and well supported by a body cushion on the floor.
