CranioSacral Therapy (CST) 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
HOT STONE THERAPY / As mentioned, these are part of every massage no extra cost! 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 or tension. Ask is f you prefer stones to be left in hands or set on knotted area, otherwise they are not left in one place. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, & healing.

Deep Tissue Massage
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.
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 1 / 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 sells a DVD. I attended this special 4 day class in Highland Ridge Co. August 2014. Plus a refresher again in Minneapolis MN August 2016.
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 actually 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.
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.
Oncology Massage is a special type of massage developed specifically for cancer patients. Cancer patients have unique needs which must be addressed to make sure that a massage is beneficial to their health. I focus my attention on creating a gentle, nurturing environment for you to deeply relax into, and guide your body into homeostatis where amazing experiences take place within your own body' communication systems and repair functions.
Somoto Emotional Release
Somoto Emotional Release delves deeper than CranioSacral Therapy (used together in your session) into the Emotional concerns that create and manifest physical ailments.The client remains fully clothed and covered on the warm massage table. The therapist guides client into safe dialog accessing deeper emotional issues needing to be released in a gentle way. The therapist monitors body responses and progress till endpoint. Multipul concerns may be addressed in one session. Even birthing traumas may be addressed to release one from deep underlying matters.
Pain management and a feeling of a weight lifted off your shoulders usually result from this therapy.
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 60 minutes
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 30 minutes
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. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
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.
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.
Myofascial massage is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia (the membrane surrounding muscles) rather than the muscle itself. Since fascia completely encases every muscle in the body, imbalances in the fascia can have serious effects on your range of motion and comfort level. While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your workplace or event. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
