What we Offer
We offer a variety of therapy to help with your pain, whether that is physical or emotional. Psychotherapy is a hands off approach to helping you reach your goals in life.
For those wishing hands on therapy, we offer CranioSacral Therapy and Acupuncture. Safe for nearly all clients, including children, the elderly and those with compromised immune function. The treatments are drug-free and therefore no side effects.
We offer a blending of therapies with an extensive knowledge base in healing.
These approaches can be used in conjunction with western medicine to reduce the adverse side effects and complications. Our goal is to treat the underlying cause of the dysfunction verses the symptoms and therefore eliminating the problem altogether.
Our belief is that our bodies know the best course of action for us in order to heal naturally. Our bodies are always striving for a state of balance - in the body this is called homeostasis. By listening to the body we as practitioners can aid in your healing and relieve discomfort. We are in essence a go-between for you and your body to get reunited. Many clients describe a treatment as a grounding or back to the body experience.
Far too often in the medical professions, a patient is told after extensive examination, "There is nothing wrong," "It is all in your head," or "Sorry, you'll have to learn to live with it." The examining doctor unable to find the cause of the problem has little else to tell the patient. Fortunately, many physicians are now referring their patients for Acupuncture.
If we were to compare a 175 pound man on one end of a seesaw and a 47 pound child on the other end, it becomes obvious the seesaw would be "broken" due to the fact the heavier person would be sitting on the ground and lighter would be dangling in the air. Even though the seesaw is producing a symptom of being broken-extensive examination would not reveal anything wrong with the seesaw. The obvious answer is in the balance. Correction of the balance corrects the problem.
Many modalities use a heavy approach which can be invasive to already compromised tissue. Our bodies natural reaction to such treatments is to guard or tense in order to protect. This is often contrary to the achievement to healing. We use a gentle touch which allows us to penetrate deep within the body to the connective tissue and fascia of the body. Quite often the sensation to a client will be one of being deep within, yet our hands are only applying around 5 grams of pressure. This pressure is about the weight that you can withstand on the back of a closed eyelid.
Together we offer amplified energy to these treatments. Two practitioners working on one body is almost like having several treatments together in one sitting. This allows the body to do more work in one session. Since we follow the body's speed and rate of healing, there is never a "too much" or "not enough", the body only process's what you are able to do. We all have an innate inner wisdom which guides us in our healing, this was named by Dr John Upledger (the founder of CranioSacral Therapy) as the Inner Physician.
This method of treating can have profound effects on the body, mind and soul. Since we meet you where you are, that means that you are where you need to be. Some modalities force energy into or suck energy out of your being, with our treatments energy is offered in a neutral, non-judgmental atmosphere that allows your body to take what it needs and let go of what it may not.
This is within your guidelines of your inner physician.
All treatments will be different from each other and from person to person. This makes it challenging to precisely describe CranioSacral Therapy, since so many experience things in different ways.
