Therapeutic Sessions

Therapeutic Touch is the oldest form of healing touch.  It goes back to China approximately 3000 BC, called Amma.  Today we have a variety of modalities under the umbrella term of Massage.  Most of these modalities involve touch, but not all.  Massage is essentially a manipulation of soft tissues.  This all depends on the condition and needs of the body & energetic body presented.

I am trained in the below modalites, specialising and focused on Craniosacral Therapy. 

Craniosacral Therapy: Hands off or on, Light to Medium touch, Clothed.  Can be helpful with focus, nerve issues, chronic pain, Concussion, TMJ, brain fog, sleep, stress and more.

Tuning Forks: Each fork has a frequency to balance organs of the body, brain waves or muscular/nerves/fascia.  Creates a softening and balancing of function.

Reiki: Chakra Balancing/Energy work, working with your energy,  chakras and current, past life events, verbal communication & coaching.

Aromatherapy: Use of Essential Oils.  May be used in CST or Reiki sessions as called for by the body.

Visceral & Neural Manipulation Therapy: Any tissue is considered Viscera, but this modality can include organ, nerve or any tissue.  Can be helpful in Sciatica or other nerve tension issues

Myofascial Release Technique:  A light pressure with an opposing pull to an area that creates a release of the facial system.

Cupping: This is a myofascial release method that helps create space in between the tissues so that structures can have better glide.  Oil is applied to the skin, Cupps are placed on the skin of the body area being treated.  Cupps can be used as stationary, gliding, full or partial body, facial and feet. Can be helpful for TMJ and other clinical applications.

Medical/Clinical Massage at any pressure depending on the stage and needs of the injury.  This can be helpful after injury, chronic pain, joint or limb alignment, or if indicated by a Medical Professional. Client maybe clothed/partially clothed.

Swedish Massage: Pressure from light to medium depending on the client’s needs and the area of the body.   The client is usually unclothed, to your comfort level.  Lotion is applied to the body.  Hands & elbows are traditionally used.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy: Level 0-1 therapy to help with swelling of limbs, facilitate lymphatic movement throughout the head and body.  Light touch on the skin for a part of the body or the whole body, including abdomen and head. Unclothed.

Table Thai Massage/Stretch: Performed at a medium to deep pressure.  The client is clothed, light cotton t-shirt & shorts/sweats. Compression style with stretching. This style can be performed on a mat or table depending on the body style & needs of the client.

Heated Bamboo Method: This can be light to deep pressure technique with heat to help the tissue soften.  Bamboo sticks are heated, oil/lotion is applied to the body structures.
