HOT STONE + THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE (Laurie)
This is a form of massage therapy that follows the same principles of Swedish Massage with the addition of heated stones, which helps lead to deep relaxation. Adding heat to specific areas on the body enhances the feelings of relaxation and peace. Recommended in particular for individuals suffering from fibromyalgia, arthritis or other chronic pain. The penetrating effects of the heated stones allows the massage to be delivered without excessive pressure. Laurie will tailor your experience to address your personal needs while creating a peaceful, relaxing, enjoyable massage.
LYMPH DRAIN MASSAGE (Barbara & Laurie)
One the most effective ways to get your lymph system working properly. Among the various functions of the lymphatic system is ability to carry waste away from the cell and blood stream of the body’s organs of elimination. This fluid surrounds the cells throughout the body and collects cellular debris before draining it into the lymphatic system. Lymph carries the waste on a one way path towards the heart and passes though many filters (lymph nodes) where special white blood cells attach and eliminate foreign molecules.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE /TRAUMA THERAPY (Barbara)
This gentle low load pressure into the fascial restrictions, over time, will increase the viscous flow and allow the viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate and change shape. This release affects the whole body, not just the tissue that surround everything from cells to organs without interruption. Trauma, posture, inflammation, and scars can produce a binding down pressure on the fascial equaling 2,000 pounds per square inch causing pain and decreased range of motion, similar to that of the Chinese finger trap pulling tight. MFR also relies upon the notion of tissue memory as trauma imprints on the body. The fascia, specifically, experiences and records stress and trauma over the course of a lifetime, often not becoming a problem for the individual until a critical mass is reached. Through MFR, restrictions are released, and emotional memory may also be released, giving both structure and emotions the chance to heal.
Barbara has obtained Expert Level in her training in the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach.
Myofascial Release technique is known to help with:
*Shoulder range of motion
*Restless Leg Syndrome
CRANIAL SACRAL THERAPY (Barbara & Laurie)
This hands-on approach releases tension deep in the body to relieve pain, dysfunction and improve whole body health and function. Few structures have as much influence over the body’s ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord. And the central nervous system is heavily influenced by the cranial system. Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissue that surrounds the central nervous system. Cranial Sacral Therapy is increasingly used as a preventative health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease and it is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. Barbara has obtained a Level 3 and Laurie Level 2 in the Upledger Craniosacral Therapy Training.
