Acupressure Massage

Acupressure massage is a physical therapy that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself.  It supports the whole person – not just the physical body.  Acupressure massage impacts not only your psychological well being, acupressure supports your mental and emotional well being. Acupressure massage received on a regular basis offers you  a chance to cultivate a heightened sense of well being.

Acupressure  (Shiatsu) originates in Japan from Traditional Chinese Medicine, with influences today, from more recent Western therapies.  A technique that involves using thumb and palm pressure on specific points of the body,  acupressure is a deeply relaxing experience and regular treatments will alleviate stress and deeper chronic symptoms, to allow for, and to maintain one's health and well-being over one's lifetime.  As a therapist  we are  trained to respect and observe the integrity of the whole person. This holistic perspective is consistent among st all professionals and is evident in my specific philosophy of care.

Scientifically speaking,  acupressure  activates the para-sympathetic nervous system, and improves the blood flow and circulation throughout our body. Acupressure relieves general body tension. Acupressure releases the endorphin's (your brain's 'feel good' chemicals) into your bloodstream to create this overall sense of more ease and well being.  Energetically, as a therapist I follow specific pathways called meridians to accentuate and increase, or relax and disperse,  and influence "the flow of  life force,"  in our body.

Assessment and treatment in therapy may vary depending on what is needed. Within the eastern tradition, I work to harmonize and regulate the energetic pathways, the (meridians) and to attend to areas of energetic congestion and depletion.  From a western medical perspective i may treat an energetic congestion/depletion that may be observed as an area of poor circulation or structural imbalance or pain. I  may also employ stretching and a range of motion techniques, to improve one's joint mobility and muscle pliability.   I may also recommend a dietary, herbal and, or a specific nutritional regime,  or exercises and stretching techniques to enhance your healing response between visits.

There is no use of drugs, needles or mechanical devices.  Essentially   my  aim  is  to   serve,  and  to  facilitate and to relax  and  balance  the  recipients  nervous  system and to improve the recipients  overall physiological health,  and to enliven the recipients own natural powers of recuperation and healing.

During an Acupressure treatment I utilize both gentle and deep pressure using the thumbs, fingers and hands.  Occasionally, as needed, i may apply techniques using elbows. Whereas Swedish massage involves the use of oil or lotion for the purpose of gliding techniques, acupressure is delivered using direct rhythmic pressure and contact is sustained.  During a session  please wear comfortable and loose clothing or you may receive the therapy while covered by a linen. Acupressure can be performed on a futon on the floor, in a chair, or on a table.

 After a therapy session you will feel a  deep relaxation and re-connection with your somatic self.  You may also feel sleepy or energized depending on your general health status.   I  encourage you to keep well hydrated after the treatment and to notice if there have been improvements in signs and symptoms. Please share these with me.

The benefits of this kind of massage therapy extend beyond our comprehension at times. The effects can be felt immediately or will be noticed over time. Acupressure massage deeply benefits those with chronic ailments, arthritis, muscle aches, & pains, digestive conditions, fibromyalgia, or any condition where relief is required in the bones, muscles, joints, tissues, or vital organs of the body. 

CranioSacral Therapy

 is a gentle hands-on body therapy that nourishes and supports the endocrine and immune systems, increases blood flow & supply to the brain and deeply replenishes the nervous system. Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a powerful non-invasive mind, body therapy that works particularly well for those suffering from anxiety, headaches, sleep disorders, and depression. 

CST theory and practice is based on the understanding of the continuous and subtle movements of the cranial bones, and cerebral spinal  pulse that is felt throughout the body.   This pulse results in a rhythm of approximately six to twelve cycles per minute not unlike the sense of the  waves rolling upon the shore. This rhythm is understood as a response to cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) fluctuations within the spinal cord and the brain environment. The subtle movement extends outward to the entire body, in response to this fluid pressure and to the changes of the Central Nervous System. 

Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams ( about the weight of a nickel, ) restrictions are released in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system.  As therapists we gently work with the whole body including the spine and the skull, and its cranial sutures, diaphragms, and fascia. By using our hands as fine discriminating tools, we detect disturbances in the cranialsacral rhythm, we identify areas of dysfunction, such as cranial, sutural, membrane and or other soft tissue restrictions in the body. Soft-touch techniques are used to release restrictions in the tissues influencing the craniosacral system and increasing  the recipients own natural flow of life force or energy.

Few structures have as much influence over the body's ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord that make up the central nervous system. And, the central nervous system is heavily influenced by the cranio-sacral system, the membranes and fluid that surrounds, protects and nourishes the brain and spinal cord. Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for.  Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the cranio-sacral system.  These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system that it interacts with. Fortunately,  these restrictions can be detected and corrected using  these simple cranio-sacral methods of touch.

By normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord and enhancing the body's ability to self-correct, CranioSacral Therapy is able to alleviate a wide variety of dysfunctions, from mental health concerns, chronic pain, or sports injuries to stroke and neurological impairments. Craniosacral is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and  many kinds of dysfunction.  

Patients remain clothed during a treatment and treatments generally are one to one half hours long.

A treatment  may treat and alleviate a number of conditions and are included below.

Helps restore normal cranial mobility;
Releases abnormal myofascial restrictions and tensions in the body;
Releases abnormal restrictions in the head;
Eases restrictions of nerves;
Optimizes cerebrospinal fluid movement through the central nervous system; and
