 Massage Therapy

Massage is the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body.  The purpose of massage is to bring about physiological, mechanical, or psychological changes to correct metabolic imbalances in the soft tissue.  

Massage does not fix, cure, or diagnose, but is beneficial in many ways including:

  • relief of anxiety and tension/stress
  • lowered blood pressure
  • pain relief
  • increased circulation
  • increased flexibility/range of motion
  • stimulation of the healing process
  • mobilization of scar tissues/adhesions
  • heightened body awareness
  • sense of well-being
  • improved sleep and concentration

 

CST (CranioSacral Therapy)

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle method of detection and correction that encourages your own natural healing mechanisms to dissipate the negative effects of stress on your central nervous system.  You also benefit from better overall health and resistance to disease.

CST utilizes your body's own natural healing abilities and rhythms to enhance its functioning and to help alleviate pain and discomfort.  The CST practitioner uses a light touch - generally no more than the weight of a nickel - to test restrictions in the craniosacral system.

CST helps alleviate a range of illness, pain, and dysfunction, including:

  • migraines and headaches
  • chronic neck and back pain
  • stress and tension-related problems
  • chronic fatigue
  • emotional difficulties
  • and many other conditions

The Amethyst BioMat

By lying on the full-length BioMat you will instantly feel the warmth of the infrared rays deeply penetrating your body as the negative ions deliver healing signals to your body.  Because the BioMat’s unique technology penetrates at the cellular level, it is capable of addressing a wide range of health issues.  Recent studies (2003) from Japan have shown FIR to result in more rapid wound healing independent of changes in blood flow and skin temperature. FIR was shown to stimulate a group of cells called fibroblasts to make more collagen, a substance needed for wound healing and tissue repair. FIR, with its gentle tissue warming, has also been shown to improve the health of the cells that line our blood vessels.  The BioMat:

  • Relieves minor muscle pain in areas where applied
  • Increases blood circulation in areas where applied
  • Reduces stress and fatigue
  • Soothes and relaxes
  • Eases minor joint pain, and stiffness
