Swedish Massage
Massage is used to relieve a variety of complaints. These include the pain & discomfort associated with chronic muscle tension, stiff joints, sciatica, sprains & overworked muscles. Receivers of massage often report a sense of heightened well-being. Swedish Massage sessions are 1/2 hour to one hour in length. The client disrobes and is draped with a sheet or towel. Only the area being massaged is exposed. Oil or lotion is applied to the body to facilitate easier application of the strokes. The Therapist may also incorporate active or passive stretching and hot or cold packs to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. Massage is contraindicated for the following conditions: fever, any contagious disease, jaundice, acute phlebitis & varicose veins. Pregnant women must check with their physician before receiving Massage Therapy.

CranioSacral Therapy
CST is a gentle non-invasive, non-manipulative therapy that helps to release the underlying forces that maintain stress patterns in the body. The Therapist is trained to listen deeply to the subtle motions of the craniosacral system and to bring awareness to where there is constriction. By using his/her hands to witness any restricted patterns, the therapist provides an opportunity for the client's body to release the holding and return to its natural fluid state. While this usually occurs on an unconscious level within the body, the results can be clearly felt. CST can be useful for diverse conditions including allergies, asthma, TMJ, exhaustion, cerebral palsy, digestive disorders, headaches and many more. Because CST affects the pressure of the fluid in the brain, its use is contraindicated in recent acute aneurysm and hemorrhage, brain stem tumor and concussions.

AromaTherapy
Aromatherapy is the use of pure essential oils obtained from various flowers, fruits, bark, roots, etc. to receive their therapeutic benefits. Aromatherapy preparations are helpful for conditions such as stress, allergies, insomnia & PMS. Aromatherapy is a welcome addition to any holistic care regimen.

Trigger Point Therapy
Myofascial pain often arises from Trigger Points located in taut bands of muscle that produce radiating pain patterns and changes in muscle function. Trigger Points can perpetuate, exacerbate, complicate or even mimic common neurological, orthopedic, and systemic conditions. The Therapist locates the Trigger Point, then applies pressure for up to 30 seconds to allow the point to release. This is a slow, deep, specific treatment
