CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful technique that is effective in releasing neck pain, back pain, and mental stress (among many other things). It does this by optimizing the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spine and around the skull. Developed by physicians William Sutherland, and John Upledger this therapy provides a very soothing and relaxing healing experience. The craniosacral system is a functioning physiological system composed of cerebrospinal fluid, the membranes that contain it, its osseous attachments, and the mechanisms that produce and reabsorb the cerebrospinal fluid. It has a powerful influence over the nervous, endocrine and immune systems, and a total-body effect. It is also characterized by a palpable, rhythmic, mobile activity that persists throughout life and continues on 20 min after the heart beat stops.

HOT STONE THERAPY / In this style of massage: heated stones are used moving on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much deeper and quicker. I then work even deeper on your knots and stressed muscles, without creating resistance, tension or fear. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, & healing.
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, I work directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet, hands, and ears. Reflexology is an in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet, hands and ears. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression. I am always learning more to help ease your discomforts quicker and most effectively.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body.

Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
CranioSacral Therapy Longevity & Reversing the Ageing Process
Michael Morgan (My instructor; CST 2 / Upledger Institute) created and teaches CSTLRAP. Morgan wrote a book: The Body Energy - Longevity Prescription - How CranioSacral Therapy Helps Prevent Alzheimer's and Dementia While Improving the Quality of Your Life. ISBN-13: 978-0-578-14820-5 $17.95. Morgan also made and sales a DVD. I attended this special 4 day class in Highland Ridge Co. August 2014.
You remain fully dressed for this session. Light hands on therapy. No oils are used. Advanced CranioSacral skills are used. The back of Neck will be massaged gently but deep, ensuring muscles return to their full range of motion and resulting pain free. Many results are immediate and very empowering.
These techniques are incorporated into every session to help you age gracefully and keep you in balance, but selecting CSTLRAP provides a deeper concentration on specific areas which brings about vast results.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.
Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly.
It helps to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and also increase range of motion. If you are elderly, geriatric massage can help you maintain and improve your overall health, as well as regain certain physical functions that have been reduced due to aging. In addition, since the elderly don't typically receive enough physical touch, this massage can also help alleviate symptoms of loneliness or depression.
Energy work is based on the belief that everyone has a "life force", and that the body needs to sustain its balance for optimum health. I call this the divine. Anytime you experience emotional or physical illness, it indicates that your life force has simply become unbalanced. I work directly with your energy field to restore balance and flow to your entire system. And once your energy field has been restored to full health, your body will follow. As a Reiki Master/Teacher I can teach and attune you into Reiki as well. Please ask for more information about classes; individual or group.
