TYPES OF BODYWORK & MASSAGE
Craniosacral TherapyA gentle soft tissue mobilization approach to assist release of restrictions throughout the connective tissue (fascia) of the body. It works with the health of the fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord. It aims to release physical and emotional holding patterns that affect healing and health. Craniosacral therapy is helpful for reducing pain, increasing nervous system relaxation, improving digestion, improving mental clarity and feeling more content and free. It’s an excellent treatment for complex or elusive conditions and head injuries.
Lymphatic DrainageA specialized form of massage performed by our Occupational or Physical Therapist working specifically with the lymphatic system. It reduces swelling and is especially powerful for decreasing pain and increasing mobility if you have swelling.
Abhyanga Oil MassageAn Ayurvedic medicine modality designed to assist with balancing and restoring the doshas (or energies at work within the body). It assists with deeply calming the nerves and enhancing functions of bodily organs and tissues. It’s helpful for overall wellness, pain, swelling, tension, detoxification, digestion, and healing from surgeries.
ShirodharaAn Ayurvedic treatment to enhance deep calm and clarity and to fortify your senses. It involves starting with a warm, herb-infused oil foot massage followed by a stream of warm oil slowly poured over your third eye, forehead and top of head for 20 to 30 minutes. It assists with regulating the nervous system to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. It reduces insomnia and fatigue, and balances mood and emotions.
Visceral Physical TherapyA specialized form of Physical Therapy that works with the mobility and freedom of the organs. It can be an especially powerful boost for the body’s detoxification process and reduce feelings of fatigue. It can also help with fertility, digestive issues, or post-surgical gut function.
Myofascial ReleaseThis specialized hands-on technique improves elasticity in the body. It’s especially helpful to promote scar tissue healing, remediate sports injuries and overuse injuries, relieve chronic tightness and pain, and free up circulation for the health of all your systems.
Traction & Joint MobilizationThis technique is used to create space in the joints.It is especially helpful for pain, impingement, spine pain, and arthritis.
CuppingThis technique is used to create a vacuum suction on the skin surface. This suction puts tension on the myofascial networks of the body, bringing blood and energy (known as Qi in Chinese medicine) to the surface.It’s especially helpful for pain, chronic pain, and digestive issues.
Zero BalancingThis method frees up the flow of energy through the skeletal tissue as we move and absorb force. It’s especially helpful for pain, injury healing, and freeing up the deep knowing of your body’s wisdom.
Tuning ForksThese are used in acupuncture as a gentle way of moving Qi and working with the deeper channel networks of your body. It’s helpful to encourage a deep nervous system relaxation and tp support imbalances—by warming, cooling, dispersing, or tonifying energy.
ReikiReiki (meaning universal life force energy) is an energetic healing modality for mind, body and spirit where the practitioner’s hands are directly applied to you or around you. It’s often used in healing complex or elusive conditions and for deep relaxation. It can be wonderful wellness maintenance for people who work in an environment or are in relationships that have a taxing or negative effect on their energy.
