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.
Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams (about the weight of a nickel) and using body structures of cranium, spine and sacrum, the therapist supports your body's ability to self-correct and release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system, allowing the craniosacral fluid to flow more easily.
Craniosacral therapy is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. Recent glial cell research supports craniosacral therapy as a therapeutic resource for brain health.

Reiki supports 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.
