You will hear the term "Evidence Based", meaning they have been researched 
and double blind studied by many professionals in medicine and the
alternative/complementary field alike.

Ahhh, Massage !!!, Weather used for pain, rehabilitation or stress related, there is nothing like the human touch that affects the whole body healing in mind, physical and soul.   Massage in the USA,  that was once brought to you only by Family or Nurses, is now a common household word. As part of a nursing plan for optimal health, it is a great 
non-evasive  treatment.
  
And, although it has been used by physical therapists for many years, just recently has it been extensively clinically researched for Integrative medicine in most of the big major medical centers.  What was once the norm in the yesteryear is back and documented widely for it's overwhelming healthy benefits and healing aspects.

"Lomi Lomi" means to return to the source and it does exactly that. This technique is one of long flowing, wave-like rhythmic movements, as in a dance of massage.   Where the intention  is to find congestion in areas of the body and to open them up.  This technique will leave you feeling enveloped  in health & comfort and reduced pain. It can be a mentally, physically and spiritual experience.  A truly blessed experience with many health benefits.

It mimics light Swedish in some ways but focuses on providing excellent detoxing benefits while also providing a wonderful massage experience in itself.  This will assist all the great things you are doing for yourself already and intensify those Physical, Spiritual and Emotional needs of your body as well.  We often incorporate Reiki, Reflexology and other modalities into this massage for a complete, healthy experience and providing pain relief in most instances.   We find lymphatic is the best massage for most needs & optimal well-being.

Tuning Fork Therapy                                     
When you strike a tuning fork, you'll notice how it causes the air around the fork to vibrate, sending out very strong vibrating impulses through the air. Because of this, their use has been brought back to increase circulation, increasing the amount of energy on parts of the body, using the bodies energy from our approx. 75% water content, the meridians and nerve pathways.   As noted in "Vibrational Medicine", this type of healing tool has been used for thousands of years, as far back as the Egyptians.

 
 

pensweed ginger and celery pack massage

reflexology Asian medicineReflexology
is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body.   According to reflexology, every part  of the human body  is mapped into the feet. 
 
Treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression. This includes pressure points to the hands, feet  and ear lobes to increase "Chi" and assist the nervous system for balance of the body. 
 
 
 


 
Reiki and ChakrasReiki
is a Japanese form of energy healing that cleanses and balances the energy patterns in the body.  As a result, the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum mental, emotional, and physical health.  During a session, We work in energetic connection with you, in order to remove blockages, detoxify & restore your natural energy force. The Reiki techniques utilize a gentle laying on of hands above or directly on the body, to conduct the necessary energy  between us. 

The benefits of Reiki range from the release of mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.   Reiki does NOT send any thing to you or cause things to happen. It opens pathways for healing and your body works with those open areas to send the needed energy where it needs it the most.  This can be done with your clothes on or worked into a session as well.
 




 
Asian medicine and long lifeMedical Qi-Gong

acupressure and pressure pointsAcupressure
is a form of bodywork similar to acupuncture, with the aim of stimulating specific points along the energy 
lines of the body to establish overall health  & vitality by balancing the Qi (energy) flow.  Unlike acupuncture however, with this modality we use our hands to apply pressure to the specific points rather than needling, producing similar therapeutic results. This allows balancing the "meridians"
of the body, that is said to assist in overall health.
