benefits of massage therapy

Relax... Take it easy for awhile.

Craniosacral Therapy - with Samantha Pridgen
Craniosacral Therapy is an energetic technique based on Cranial Osteopathy. Like Cranial Osteopathy, Craniosacral Therapy seeks to restore the natural rhythmic movement found between the bones of the skull. It does the same for the movements of the sacrum. The purpose of this is to aid the circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid throughout the central nervous system.

However, Craniosacral Therapists believe that the natural movements at the skull bones come from the membrane that lines our nervous system structures, namely the brain and spinal cord. For this reason, their focus is on those membranes, rather than directly on the bones and sutures. Find out more about Craniosacral Therapy

Raindrop Therapy - with Laura Ghantous
The Raindrop Technique combines the science of Aromatherapy with the techniques of Vita Flex, reflexology, and massage, via the application of essential oils, which are applied on various areas of the body to bring structural and energetic alignment. It is designed to bring balance to the body with its relaxing, mild application. It will help to align and clear the energy centers of the body without using force or excessive pressure. When you combine the energetic frequency and the intelligence of the body with the oils, a greater healing process begins. Find out more about Raindrop Therapy
