Bodywork is a classification for healing therapies that involve manipulation of tissue, muscle, or skeleton. Bodywork techniques relieve stress, ease pain, improve circulation, stimulate vitality, and generally promote well-being.
The principal behind the science of reflexology is that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to the glands, organs and parts of the body. Reflexology possesses the capacity to cancel out the effects of stress while it helps the body to reach a place of deep relaxation where it can balance the body systems.
What to expect from a Reflexology treatment
A reflexology session usually can last for 45-60 minutes. The reflexologist will ask questions about the persons medical and emotional history, what illnesses or diseases have been previously diagnosed, medication or herbs now taking as these may affect the way in which the session is performed.The session takes place while the client is laying on a massage-like table. The reflexologist will relax the feet through flexing and similar motions. The session continues using methods somewhat similar to acupressure, usually starting at the tips of the toes and down to the heels on top and bottom of the feet and to the knees. A person may feel minor sensations or nothing at all. The session is usually quite relaxing and I’ve had several people fall asleep. I’ve found through experience that Reflexology is marvelous for stress management and general relaxation.

Positional Release Therapy
Positional release is a form of complete body evaluation and treatment. It uses comfortable body positions and the release of tender points to relieve pain and discomfort.

Ortho-Bionomy™ is a gentle, non-invasive, system of healing that reminds the body of its natural ability to restore balance. Its principles are based on a simple and profound philosophy: allow the body to correct itself. The hallmark of Ortho-Bionomy is pain relief.
Ortho-Bionomy works directly with the body’s nervous system in order to re-educate the body on a cellular level. It is helpful in integrating the physical, mental, and emotional experiences of the body and allowing these experiences to all communicate and have a relationship with each other. Ortho-Bionomy promotes natural body alignment, eases stress, and encourages relaxation.
WHAT IS A TYPICAL SESSION LIKE
Ortho-Bionomy is done on a massage table, fully clothed. Typically sessions are 60 minutes to 90 minutes in length. Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended for full range of movement. Gentle, non-invasive techniques are used, reminding the body where ease of movement, health, healing and balance are found. When the body is reminded of this state of being, a natural reflex occurs in the body. This reflex allows the body to let go of the unnecessary, painful patterns and return to a place of balance. Ortho-Bionomy always works away from pain and towards ease and comfort. The body is never forced into change, which can cause it to fight or resist in opposition. Ortho-Bionomy works with the body, not against it. Each session is specific to each person’s individual needs. No two sessions are exactly alike.
Treatment areas in which Ortho-Bionomy™ is used
- For all illness, disorders and pain related to the muscle-skeletal system
- For functional disorders of the internal organs
- To regulate hormonal processes
- To improve self-awareness of internal and external states
- For chronic pain due to injury or fibromyalgia
- As a complementary therapy for psycho-somatic illnesses and emotional disorders
- To help connect you with your body in order to better handle the everyday physical, emotional and mental stresses of modern society
Lymphatic Drainage is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
Facial Rejuvenation - Lymphatic/Acupressure
Facial Rejuvenation- Lymphatic/Acupressure is a specialized lymphatic sequence for the face and neck and an acupressure technique to work with acupressure points & meridians to clear blockages caused by emotional/physical stress and the aging process. This process reduces fine lines and wrinkles so that you feel and look better longer! Great foundation for the work of LOW LIGHT LED THERAPY
Physicists have learned that the human body is comprised of energy vibrating at different speeds. The physical body, thoughts, emotions, and spiritual center all vibrate at their own particular frequency. These varying vibrations create a field around each one that is referred to as “aura” or an “energy field.” This aura is an information center and perceptual field that sends and receives messages from the external and internal environment. Energy waves, or frequencies, like radio or television can be sent over distances.
The reiki practitioner sends Universal Life Energy to the receiver to harmonize the energies of the person. The energies are sent to the person without limitation and they will go where needed (Universal Life Intelligence).
Hypnoreiki is the combination of reiki and hypnosis. Often times there may be anxiety associated with the thoughts of being hypnotized. In this instance the combination of reiki helps to calm and soothe the muscles, and calm the emotions enough to enjoy the experience of hypnotherapy. Also, the coupling of reiki and hypnosis has the effect of increasing the power of both by opening the portals to the utilization of energy in a defined mind-body pattern.
Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a combination of two Japanese words reiand ki meaning universal life energy. Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki’s ki-energies flow out of the practitioner’s body through the palms of the hands while they are touching the recipient’s body.
What to expext from a Reiki Session
You will be asked to lay down on a massage table, couch, or bed. You will be fully clothed except for your shoes. You may also be asked to remove or loosen your belt so that your breathing is not restricted in any way. It is best to choose loose-fitting garments to wear on the day of your appointment. Wearing natural fabrics is best (cotton, wool, or linen). You may also be asked to remove any jewelry (rings, bracelets, pendants, etc.) prior to the session, so consider leaving these items at home.
