CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, light touch approach that releases tensions in the central nervous system by treating the membranes and cerebral spinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. This allows every other system in the body to relax, self-correct and free itself from discomfort. Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. A typical CranioSacral Therapy session is performed fully clothed. The therapist begins by gently touching various parts of your body to monitor the rhythm of the fluid flowing around the central nervous system. Delicate manual techniques are then used to release restrictions.
Benefits of CranioSacral Therapy:
Decreases physical pain & discomfort
Provides deep relaxation
Reduces panic attacks
Improves insomnia & return to normal sleep patterns
Alleviates side effects of medical treatments, including chemotherapy
The lymph system carries fluid, nutrients, and waste material between the body tissues and bloodstream. Harmful substances are removed from the body tissues and neutralized in the lymph nodes. A healthy lymph system is essential for fluid circulation and immune functions of the body. Lymphatic drainage massage uses gentle rhythmic touch to help detoxify the body. Lymph vessels are found throughout the body, with more than 70% of them found just below the skin. With light pressure, cellular waste can be moved through the lymph system to the lymph nodes where bacteria, viruses, and foreign substances can be trapped and destroyed.
Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage:
Stimulates the lymph system to work more efficiently
Foot Zone Therapy is a holistic approach which recognizes that all of the body’s cells and organs make up a complex and interactive organism. It is a practice of treating the physical, mental and emotional features of the body, by using precise massage techniques on the feet. A complete foot zone communicates to every cell in the body. Nerve signals sent to the brain affect change at the corresponding area -- muscle, bone, joint, organ or system. The zone encourages the cells to regenerate from their imbalanced state to their original healthy state, bringing the body back into balance at the cellular level.

Have you ever tried to put on a wet t-shirt? It’s quite the struggle, it gets twisted and caught up. Fascial restrictions in our bodys are similar to the wet t-shirt.

The cause of these restrictions can be from injury, stress, loss of range of motion, surgery, misalignment, repetitive motion in one or more directions, and prolonged poor posture (sitting).

Qigong is a holistic system of gentle movements that help coordinate breath, posture, and balance. It is used to promote health, spirituality, and mental focus. Movements can be adapted to participants abilities and many can be done seated.
Classes are open to all ages and experience levels.
Melody, age 70: With getting older and surviving two form of cancer, my body and balance are not what they were. The Qigong movements are simple and could be done from a chair when I needed it. I love that it can help me build strength and give inner focus.
Amy, age 49: This was my first Qigong class so I didn't know what to expect. I loved the breathing and visualization exercise and felt like I was on a whole new frequency by the time we finished. It really relaxed me and I felt like I could breathe with my whole body, which I am sure helped my central nervous system to quiet down. As we finished up, I told Jeremy that I wanted my husband and 3 daughters to come next time so that they could have this experience too!
Paul, age 73: Qigong is helping me with breath work and movement as I continue to gain strength post chemo. I am in remission after a leukemia diagnosis earlier this year and have a new lease on life. I move forward each day appreciating what it has to offer.
Amy, age 48: As Jeremy was walking us through an energy awareness sequence last week, I realized the headache I had all day was gone. It is so cool to see how the body can heal itself when presented with the right tools.
