A method of stimulating your lymph and body fluids. It is a very gentle hands-on procedure that will help you eliminate fluid retention, cleanse your body, and eliminate toxins and trapped proteins in your tissues. The passage of lymph fluid into the lymph nodes will also stimulate your immune system, help you relax, and release stress and emotional trauma. Lymphatic Drain also decreases the sympathetic response and stimulates the parasympathetic tone-relaxation, anti-spastic, analgesic (anti-pain) actions.

BODY TREATMENTS

 

 

Allergy Correction

Allergy correction uses the Meridian Alignment system with special attention to immune response and allergens, removing symptomatic reaction from specific allergies. 

 

Meridian Alignment

A technique of using the body’s own unique energy (nervous) system to improve health. During and alignment, pressure points are lightly held until the nerves and muscles respond strongly, indicating that there has been a change and blockages along the pathways have been removed. This allows organs and systems withing the body to function more efficiently and symptoms seemingly unrelated begin to diminish. 

 

Emotional Release Therapy

Emotional release assists the body release stored emotions that we carry in our DNA inherited from past generations as well as our own. According to research these emotions have a direct impact on our health. All emotions are stored in the amygdala gland in the brain, part of the limbic system. Essential oils are used because they are capable of breaking through the blood/brain barrier. These oils travel to the amygdala gland where emotions are stored, and the aroma helps release these stored emotions. While you are lying on a massage table fully clothed, with soft music playing, essential oils are applied to different areas of the body. During the session, you may experience flashbacks, or think about things from the past, or you may experience little emotion. Please wear old comfortable clothing, as the oils may stain. 

 

Light Healing Touch

A relaxing, nurturing energy therapy. Gentle touch assists in balancing your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Healing Touch works with your energy field to support your natural ability to heal. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with standard medical care. 

 

Raindrop Therapy

Raindrop Therapy involves dropping Essential Oils directly onto the spine from about six inches above the body. The oils are then worked into the spine using light strokes with the fingers which stimulates nerve impulses and disperse the oils along the nervous system throughout the entire body. In this way, the body can be brought into balance and the energy centers can be cleared and re-aligned. This therapy will also help to reduce spine inflammations and kill viruses that hibernate along the spinal column, as well as help to straighten any spinal curvatures. Although a session lasts for about 45 minutes to an hour, the oils will continue to work in the body for a week or more following the treatment. . 

 

Sound Therapy

Sound Therapy or Sound Healing is the practice of promoting a sense of balance and well-being in the client using discreet contact with the body and sound vibrations to affect the body’s energetic field. To achieve this, the practitioner uses the tones of various instruments aimed directly at certain parts of the body or brain. The body then responds by adjusting its own frequencies to resonate with the tones generated by the instruments. The goal is to help clients shift to a neutral place within and achieve the sense of serenity necessary to restore the body’s innate healing ability. Sound therapy is relax-therapy that integrates tuning forks and instrument placement along energy centers and pathways on the head, neck, shoulders, upper chest, abdomen, legs, and feet similar to those used in acupuncture. Some benefits include: increased circulation, stress reduction, relief from arthritic pain and sinus pressure, relief from depression, restores cellular activity, and reprograms DNA.

 

Whole Body Tuning

An amazing technique that uses color, peaceful music set to a particular note, specially blended essential oils, and unique tuning forks that  when struck resonate at the perfect tone to a particular area of your body being addressed. Lying fully clothed on a massage table you will first hear the sound of music designed to reduce the stress of your adrenal glands and glandular systems. While the music plays your therapist may apply essential oils to your feet, also allowing you to smell them. After the application of the oil, a colored cloth is layered over the adrenal area. At this time, light massage techniques may also be used. This sequence is repeated for six additional key areas of stress. This therapy will help you feel more balanced, harmonious, and tuned up, boost your immune system and support your nervous system.
