This process not only helps relieve pain from back, neck, shoulders and other areas, but also aids in relieving stress, leaving the client in a heightened state of relaxation.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle form of bodywork that works with the cerebro-spinal fluid that flows thru the central nervous system, which starts in the sacrum, goes all the way up the spine-surrounding the spinal cord and around the entire cranium. It releases wound up back and neck muscles as well as adhesions in the membrane surrounding the spinal cord, helping the core of your body to stretch out and release, and allowing the Cerebral Spinal Fluid to flow through freely, bathing all the nerves in the body, all the way from the spine out through various layers of the body, to the organs, letting go of tension and relieving pain. 60 min - $80 / 90 min -

DEEP-TISSUE / NEURO-MUSCULAR Massage
Deep tissue is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct pressure applied to the muscles focusing on specific areas. This technique helps loosen muscle tissues while releasing deeply-held patterns of tension, eliminating scar tissue, releasing toxins and getting blood and oxygen circulating while relaxing and soothing the muscle. This may cause soreness during and after the massage, but when done correctly, you should feel better than ever within a day or two. Because many toxins are released, it is important to drink plenty of water after the session to help expel the toxins from the body.Deep Tissue: 60 min - $85 / 90 min - $130 Neuromuscular Therapy: 60 min - $100 / 90 min - $150 Purchase here!

ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING
The Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) method of muscle lengthening and fascia release is a type of athletic stretching technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups. The Aaron Mattes Method of myofascial release, which incorporates AIS, uses active movement and reciprocal inhibition to achieve optimal flexibility. Using a 2.0 second stretch has proven to be the key in avoiding reflexive contraction of the antagonistic muscle. Without activating muscle group contraction, restoration of full range of motion and flexibility can be successfully achieved. 60 min - $100 / 90 min -

Reiki (rei; universal / ki; energy) is a gentle hands-on healing
modality that restores spiritual equilibrium, and activates the body's
own natural ability to heal itself.
Reiki is not an abstract, intangible experience or practice. It's a spiritually guided modality that originated 2500 years ago in Tibet. It helps heal the energetic field of the recipient and while this process is taking place the recipient feels either a tingling sensation or a feeling of heat or cold.
By clearing energy blockages and suppressed emotions, emotional and mental disharmony can be easily dissolved. After each session, a great reduction of stress and emotional clearing will be manifested by a glowing radiance, a sense of heightened awareness and profound mental clarity. The experience itself is powerful yet extremely relaxing. Reiki will often allow the deeper causes of the unhappiness or negative emotions to surface, which allows for healing to take place. 60 min - $80 / 90 min - $120 Click here to purchase!
