BODYWORK

Integrative Massage

60 I 90 I 120 MINUTES $65 I $90 I $125 

*see package pricing at bottom of page*

Massage strengthens the cardiovascular system. It wakes up the body through moving and pushing stagnant fluid. This movement helps to break up and rid the body of toxins. Toxins love to create a home in your muscles, blood, bones and organs. Without movement, proper sleep, diet, and regular massage, these toxins can create disease.

Massage turns on your Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS). A powerful system that allows your organs to create homeostasis or balance. It is the internal slow-down switch. The body is in constant motion even while asleep, and with added stress from daily life, it has to work that much harder to remain balanced. Turning on the Parasympathetic nervous system allows the body to relax and encourages healing to happen organically.

Each client is unique and requires a different approach or treatment. Integrative massage means you are being worked on intuitively – some treatments incorporate many different modalities such as Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki, Deep Tissue, Thai Yoga, Shiatsu, Myofascial Release, and Swedish.  Aromatherapy, heat, arnica and healing stones are often used during treatments to assist and enhance healing.

Your First Treatment?  Massage can be done fully clothed, but is not recommended.  For a therapeutic massage treatment, the client is unclothed, and professionally draped under sheets or towels.  The therapist uses long and short strokes on the muscles with modest amounts of oil, to break up fascial restrictions.  Every person experiences bodywork differently and depending on what is moved within the muscles memory, the response may be dramatic or subtle.  Here are some common sensations after bodywork:

  • calm and deeply relaxed
  • exhausted, sluggish or sad
  • muscle soreness (that can last up to a week)
  • excessive thirst
  • light and lifted

All of these sensations are normal and expected.

 

Craniosacral Therapy (CST)

60 MINUTES $55

*see package pricing at bottom of page*

Dr. John Upledger is celebrated for his development of Craniosacral Therapy.  CST is a gentle non-invasive therapy that assesses, modifies, and corrects restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve wellness and enhance the body's self correcting and regulation mechanism.  The CSR (craniosacral rhythm) is a physiological system that is responsible for the production, circulation and re-absorption of CSF (craniosacral fluid).  CSR consists of, the ventricular system that produces CSF, the dural membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord, and the bony and fascial attachments of membranes.  The Craniosacral System is treated through light touch, time, intention and energy.  

Who is CST good for?  It is highly beneficial for anyone to enhance overall health and wellbeing.  CST has been found beneficial for several clinical considerations beyond enhancing general wellbeing, such as (this is a very small list):   

  • Migraines/Headaches
  • TMJ
  • PTSD
  • Muscle Tension
  • Neck Problems
  • Sciatica
  • Sinus Problems
  • Ear Infections

How often should I receive CST?   This is up to the client's body and how well it responds to the first treatment.  Some clients may need several treatments before they start to feel the benefits, while others respond immediately.  Where ever you fall as a client, once the body reaches homeostasis, regular 4-6 week maintenance is then recommended.  

What should the client expect?  This is fully clothed treatment (loose comfortable clothing is best) where the client is lying on the treatment table and encouraged to relax into his/her breath.  The practitioner will do a full evaluation of the craniosacral system before beginning the treatment; which includes checking the CSR for imbalances.   During treatment, the practitioner will hold with gentle touch, on different parts of the Craniosacral system, encouraging and enhancing the CSR movement.  Every client will respond differently depending on what needs to be released within the body.  Some may experience REM (rapid eye movement), twitching, expansion of breath, laughing, crying, sneezing, coughing, increased digestion, hot or cold flashes, or a deep sense of relaxation.  All of these sensations are completely normal and expected.  They are signs that the autonomic nervous system is working.


PACKAGE PRICING

massage - 60 I 90 MINUTES $220 I $300 (4mnth expiration)

CRANIOSACRAL  - 60 MINUTES $200 (4mnth expiration)


All 4 treatments are booked at time of purchase

The 4-package is designed to be affordable for clients to come in weekly, bi-monthly or monthly to work through ongoing chronic or acute pain(s).

Pain comes in all different shapes and sizes, and is often associated with trauma or repetitive motion to the body. Regular soft tissue massage and joint mobilization can dramatically reduce the pain experienced.

Depending on how severe the pain is, often one treatment does not totally eliminate the problem.  Recovery depends on many factors such as, how long the client has been living with the symptoms and how quickly their body responds to the body work. 

**If you are in need of treatment, and currently do not have the financial means, please contact me to work out a fair co-pay amount per treatment**
