The Bodywork program is a wellness service that enhances the healing process and encourages a more healthy lifestyle. Individuals who participate in these services may enjoy such benefits as:
- Decreased pain
- Increased relaxation
- Improved outlook on life
- Stimulation of the self-healing process
- Stress relief and a more peaceful mind
- Improved blood flow and circulation
While individuals enjoy these benefits and more fully connect with their own inner resources for healing and taking charge of their own lives, these services are not a substitute for medical treatment.
Therapeutic Bodywork Services
Beyond feeling good, therapeutic massage offers a range of benefits, including increased blood supply and nutrients to the muscles, removal of toxins and strengthening of the immune system. Massage types available include: Swedish, deep tissue, lymphatic drainage, myofascial release and pregnancy.
Acupressure is a healing art based on the principle that there are many energy pathways that feed life into the body. Acupressure and acupuncture employ the same philosophies, however, with acupressure only the gentle touch of the fingers is applied, no needles.
Reflexology offers gentle therapy applied to the feet, hands or ears using thumb and finger techniques. A Reflexologist will focus on precise locations that can have an effect on the overall body. Sessions are deeply relaxing, can help the body rejuvenate physically and mentally and studies show that reflexology is helpful for pain management. Sessions are conducted with the client fully clothed.
Healing touch facilities the healing process from an energy perspective rather than from just a physical perspective. Healing Touch Practitioners use light touch and intentionality to realign the energy flow, reactivating the mind/body/spirit connection to eliminate blockages to self-healing. Treatment is usually given on a massage table or in a chair with the client fully clothed.
Reiki is an ancient system of balancing the energy fields of the body. A standard treatment includes the placing of hands on positions around the head, shoulders, stomach and feet. Sessions are conducted with the client fully clothed in a comfortable, relaxed position.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, holistic approach to bolstering the body's self-healing capabilities. Using a light touch, the therapist feels for and removes subtle restrictions within the connective tissue that may have resulted from injury, trauma, or everyday stress. The outcome is restored range of motion, decreased pain and an increased sense of well-being.
Lymphatic massage stimulates the immune system to bolster resistance to disease. Light-pressure strokes stimulate the movement of lymph fluid to reduce congestion that can lead to toxicity and decreased energy. This treatment can also be useful for those suffering from post-surgical fluid build-up (edema).
