CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with chronic pain, emotional difficulties, stress and tension related conditions, neck and back pain, headaches, Chronic Fatigue, and Fibromyalgia.
Usui Reiki treatments consist of laying the practitioners hands on the patient’s body in a prescribed pattern and allowing the energy of life to flow through their hands. The Usui System of Reiki balances and strengthens the health of the physical body, enhances relaxation and nourishes the mind. It accelerates any healing process from bruising to chronic illness and emotional imbalances.
Esoteric acupuncture is a unique practice of acupuncture that enhances the energy flow through the chakras, vital points in your body to promote physical, emotional and spiritual balance. By increasing energy flow through these vital points, physical, emotional and spiritual blockages are resolved allowing patients to connect with their heart and their healing process. Esoteric Acupuncture is ideal for patients who experience depression, anxiety, overwhelming stress, a sense of stagnation or lack of purpose in life. For those who desire a deeper level of healing and wellness beyond simply treating their disease or physical imbalances, Esoteric Acupuncture is recommended to achieve optimal health and overall balance of the body, mind and spirit.
Needleless Acupuncture works exactly like traditional acupuncture, except without the use of needles. This method is perfect for those who would benefit from acupuncture treatment, but feel uncomfortable receiving needles or too sensitive to the needling sensation. Originally developed by Dr. Yuka after many years of training and clinical experience in applied kinesiology, acupressure, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, Needleless Acupuncture utilizes gentle pressure on acupuncture points and directive movement of the limbs to regulate and balance the movement of Qi. In some cases, homeopathic or herbal drops and/or essential oils are placed on specific points to further stimulate the effects of the therapy. It is suitable for all ages and is especially effective and safe for children and the elderly population.
Sound Healing – Reiki Drumming & Acutonics
Sound healing is a modality of treatment that incorporates the use of tones and vibrations to open the meridians and chakras in the body while bringing the body back into harmony. Sound tools such as tuning forks used in Acutonics or Reiki drums can be applied to the body. Reiki drumming helps patients shift through physical, emotional, and spiritual blockages using sound and vibration. In 2001, a Group Drumming Study of 111 subjects showed that drumming significantly reduced stress, improved mood states and increased natural killer cell activity thereby increasing immune function. Acutonics is a technique that uses tuning fork vibration over specific acupressure points to lower stress, improve digestion, and increase energy and immune function. Acutonics is an effective alternative to acupuncture needles and is especially popular with children and patients that are sensitive to acupuncture treatments.
Aroma Acupoint Therapy (AAT)
Aroma Acupoint Therapy involves the application of specific organic essential oils over acupuncture points to promote energetic changes and restore balance and well-being. As energetically active as acupuncture points essential oils can be used in place of needles for a gentle yet therapeutic effect. Aroma Acupoint Therapy can be used in conjunction with Needleless Acupuncture or acupressure particularly for children and the elderly or to enhance the effects of acupuncture treatments. By treating the mental and emotional roots to physical illnesses, AAT can be used to address a variety of conditions such as fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, hormonal imbalance, thyroid disorders, premenstrual syndrome, menstrual pain and menstrual irregularities.
