This is a gentle system of massage and energy work focusing on the system of membranes and spinal fluid that surrounds and bathes the brain and spinal cord. A session usually consists of evaluating the flow of the spinal fluid, much like taking a pulse, and then releasing any areas of restriction found in the body using light pressure at the site of treatment. Frequently this also produces a deep sense of relaxation as the nervous system is given the opportunity to correct any areas of impeded communication and allow the body’s own natural healing reflexes to take over. This is another gentle therapy similar to Reiki in that the client remains fully clothed and the therapist uses light pressure, 5 grams, or the weight of a nickel.
Sound Therapy With Tuning Forks
Sound therapy with tuning forks uses the the concept of resonance to help re-establish the peak vibratory level of the cells in your body. Although the forks I use are generally indicated for clearing the chakras of the body, some clients have reported: reduction of scars or rashes, improved flexibility of the tendons of the hands, reduction of pain, improvements in the sinuses or voice and increased range of motion in joints. These experiences, however, are not typical. Most clients report a deep feeling of peace and well-being. In the medical field, tuning forks are used to test hearing as well as diagnose hairline fractures.
Bach Flower consultations
Bach Flower remedies are considered a seperate but complete branch of homeopathy, specializing in emotional healing. It was developed by Dr. Bach, an English physician and bacteriologist who practiced during the first half of the 20th century. A consultation lasts up to one hour; remedies are an additional cost.
Auricular Acupuncture: Stop smoking, appetite regulation, stress, pain, high or low blood pressure, alcohol or drug addictions, and more!
Auricular Medicine is a separate branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine which focuses on managing physical and emotional issues using reactive points of the ear. While western medical massage models focus on the feet to treat the reflex points of the body, an acupuncture physician looks to the ear to treat reflex points using needles or ear seeds.
