Within the craniosacral system is the cerebrospinal fluid that moves in a slight but perceptible tide like manner. Craniosacral therapists assist in facilitating change in areas of restriction where this tide like motion is limited, confined, and immobilized. By using a gentle light touch, this fluid becomes more rhythmic and balanced, and the central nervous system is restored. Craniosacral Therapy is helpful to those with nervous disorders, motor-coordination impairments, attention deficit disorders, insomnia, and other problems. Craniosacral Therapy was originally developed in the early 1900’s by an osteopath named William G. Sutherland and later refined and promoted by Dr. John Upledger.

Pregnancy places strong demands on a woman’s body and is a time for the body to be nurtures and pampered. This massage not only relieves the tensions and aches caused by the extra weight and shift in the center of gravity to the body, but it reduces swelling, soothes the nervous system, acts as a tonic, reduces fatigue, and enhances energy.
Popularized in the United States by physiotherapist Eunice Inghram in the 1930’s, this is an acupressure type technique performed on hands and feet and is based on the ancient Oriental theory that meridians lines or pathways carry energy throughout the body. Because each zone or part of the body has a corresponding reflex point on the feet, stimulating that reflex point causes stimulation in the natural energy of the related organ. Crystalline- type deposits and/or tenderness indicate a dysfunction, and pressure is applied to clear out congestion and restore normal functioning and health.

This term was created by American biochemist Dr. Ida Rolf in the 1930’s. She maintained that when one part of the body is out of balance or misaligned, the rest of the body attempts to compensate until the entire structure is weakened. Even from birth, the general pressures of life and gravity push our bodies out of alignment. By manipulating the myofascial tissue in a ten session series, each building on the previous one, practitioners assist the body to reorganize, lengthen, and intergrades itself into wholeness. Rated deep.
