Brush aside any thoughts that massage is only a feel-good way to indulge or pamper yourself. To the contrary, massage can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being, whether you have a specific health condition or are just looking for an effective stress reliever.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of biomechanics.
Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams (about the weight of a nickel) practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and its effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
Lymphatic facilitation (manual lymphatic drainage) is a form of massage used to increase the healing process by increasing lymph flow, decreasing edema and swelling, and improving the function of the nervous, lymph and muscular systems. Lymph is a clear colorless fluid comprised of water, cellular components, fatty acids, and proteins. Its function is to move these components back to the blood, balance the body’s fluids, and remove bacteria from the system. Lymph circulation is improved through gentle, slow, rhythmic movements made in a specific direction and progression on the patient’s body. Lymphatic Facilitation is the only massage technique that can be done on an acute injury. It is performed through a series of light flushing massage techniques which visibly reduces inflammation so that the body’s natural immune function is enhanced. It can help people recover more quickly from sprains, strains, sore muscles, acute injuries, surgery (requires doctors permission), and swollen ankles. Lymphatic facilitation can be incorporated into other massage modalities.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
