Reiki (pronounced rāy.kē) is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that an unseen energy force flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If our energy is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick. But if it is high and flowing freely, we can maintain our health and well-being. This simple, non-invasive healing system works to promote the health and well being of the entire physical, emotional and spiritual body. Therefore, it is truly a system of attaining wholeness of Mind, Body and Spirit. Reiki is a specific type of subtle energy work in which healing is performed by light touch of the hands, allowing the flow of energy from a limitless source to the patient via the Reiki practitioner. Reiki is truly a complementary care and reinforce the effect of traditional medicine.

Through the use of various hand positions and light touch, CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle method of detecting and correcting imbalances in and around the cranium (skull), spinal cord, and sacrum (tailbone). It encourage the bodyâs own natural healing mechanisms to dissipate negative effects of stress on the central nervous system. CranioSacral Therapy is done with the client laying face up, fully dressed, on a massage table or bed. With very light touch the practitionerâs hands are placed in various places on the head, spine and sacral areas. The practitioner initially detects the motion and rhythm of the CranioSacral system to find any restrictions. Through a series of hand positions these restrictions are released for maximum movement. Once released the bodyâs natural healing abilities are enhanced. The treatment can last from 30 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the severity of the imbalance.

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Imagine fascia as a 3-D tubal spider web inside your body that surrounds and attaches to all structures down to the cellular level.Fascia, a liquid crystalline matrix, plays an important role since it supports and helps in the functioning of our bodies. The fascial system functions as a fiber optic network that bathes each cell with information, energy, light, sound, nutrition, oxygen, biochemicals, hormones and flushes out the toxins. When there is a restriction in one area pain can move down the web to areas that are not necessarily in original site. Thus this work must take in the whole body picture and not just the area of pain. MyoFascial Release is beneficial for postural problems, fibromyalgia, traumas, range of motion problems and pain issues Release of myofascial restrictions can affect other body organs through a release of tension in the whole fascia system. Myofascial release techniques work even though the exact mechanism is not yet fully understood.

The lymphatic system is made up of superficial and deep pathways of lymphatic fluid that circulates through the muscle tendons and other various parts of the body. This fluid circulates nutrients to the tissues and organs of the body. For various reasons this flow can be interrupted and congestion of fluid will result in swelling, pain and pressure. The most common causes of the interruption of flow is a result of surgical procedures, scar tissue and injuries. Through gentle manipulation of the tissue the lymphatic fluid is redirected to flow through its normal pathways. Releasing the constriction of the fluid restores the body to its natural flow. This technique is especially beneficial following mastectomy or breast surgery, sinusitis, or broken or sprained muscles or tendons. The technique removes waste products from stagnant fluid flow and replaces it with nutrient rich lymphatic fluid. Sessions can last from 30 minutes to one hour. The most rewarding part of Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) is the client will see results within minutes of the treatment.
