Healing Touch


Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. In addition to on-site treatements, Reiki can be performed as a remote healing process for those who cannot attend a treatment in person.

Myofascial Release Therapy

A gentle and very effective technique of therapeutic massage producing positive long-lasting results. It consists of the gentle application of sustained pressure into the fascial restrictions. This essential "time element" has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate. Myofascial Release Therapy is most effective in cases of: Chronic neck and back pain; Chronic fatigue; Menstrual/ pelvic pain and dysfunction; Migraine and headaches; Post-surgical healing, surgical scarring; Sport injuries; PTSD; Addiction; Sciatica; Scoliosis; and Emotional difficulties.

Trigger Points Therapy

Trigger points are 'knots' in muscle fiber that can cause direct and referred pain such as headaches, body pain, numbness, dizziness, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Trigger Points Therapy finds and deactivates the trigger point so the painful symptoms disappear. Trigger Points Therapy is usually used in combination with Myofascial Release or Swedish Massage.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage uses firm but gentle pressure to ease muscle tension and create relaxation. Combinations of smooth gliding strokes, kneading, friction, stretching, and tapping are applied lightly or deeply, depending on preference. The main purpose of Swedish Massage is to increase oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles, so the body is massaged in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.
