Bodywork: Craniosacral, Lymph Drainage & EFT
The craniosacral system (CSS) consists of the brain and spinal cord, the membranes that completely surround it, the craniosacral fluid within the membranes and the soft-tissue connections to the bones of the cranium, spinal vertebrae and sacrum. It begins developing shortly after conception, and continues functioning as a primary body system throughout our lives. The craniosacral system is intertwined with our physical, mental and emotional experiences. Using a soft touch practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system which improves the functioning of the central nervous system...which in turn has the unique ability to communicate with the rest of the body to effectively self-correct, addressing conditions including chronic pain, impaired immune function, TMJ Syndrome, fatigue, depression...and other conditions we experience. (Refer to this page for a more detailed discussion.) We are advanced practitioners of CST, treating adult and pediatric patients.

Lymph Drainage Therapy
A gentle technique that works through the body's lymphatic system to activate the body fluid circulation and stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems. The result of these actions can include reductions in edemas, detoxification of the body, regeneration of tissue as well as many other benefits. This is an ideal treatment before and after surgery, as part of an injury or illness rehabilitation protocol, before and during seasonal allergies, and to support optimal immune function. (Refer to this article for more information.)

Tapping (EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique)
Tapping (also known as EFT -- "Emotional Freedom Techniques") is a universal healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional components connected to it. Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, any kind of emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body. EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points. Countless papers published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals, including many clinical trials have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, pain, weight loss, reaching performance goals and more. Your session is held in a quiet, peaceful environment with a therapist committed to holding a healing space for you to explore your present circumstances and your needs and goals.
