What is CranioSacral Therapy?

A gentle noninvasive form of bodywork that relaxes the nervous system, stimulates healing, and balancing of the neurological pathways from the brain to the body. CranioSacral Therapy addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. It seeks to restore balance to the body and the natural position of the bones. It can provide relief from stress, migraine headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ and more.

How does Reflexology differ from a regular foot massage?

An ancient natural therapy that has been used in China for thousands of years. It is much more than just a foot massage. Our feet are a roadmap to our entire body. During a reflexology treatment, application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on our feet and hands can stimulate inner organ activity, promoting deep relaxation and increasing overall energy flows. This manipulation of the feet along with lower leg stretching also improves blood and lymph circulation relieving stress, pain and muscle tension.

what is a Hot Stone massage?

Let me take you on a journey from the stone age to the new age with the use of smooth basalt river stones bathed in warm water and anointed with aromatherapy oils chosen for your needs.
The heated stones become tools applied to specific pressure points to soothe muscles and the nervous system. This is a nurturing full body massage. An unparalleled experience.

What is Aromatherapy?

I believe in the healing power of plants and routinely utilize aromatherapy oils in my treatments. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for psychological, emotional and physical well- being. This is done through both inhalation and physical application during massage. Aromatherapy has significant impact on mood and emotions but also can produce physical reactions, such as lowered blood pressure. Smell is the most enduring of our senses and has the ability to transform our emotions and heal our bodies. It is amazing how our brain processes fragrance and it all takes place in less than a second. I only use high grade oils, most of which are pure organic essential oils in my treatments.
