Modalities

Structural Integration

A system to improve structural alignment and enhance ease of movement consisting of organized sessions of manual therapy of the fascial matrix, guided movement, and embodiment education. looks for shortened muscles and/or distorted postural patterns. 

 Arvigo 

The Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Massage ™ is a non-invasive external massage technique. It guides internal abdominal organs into their proper position for optimal health and wellbeing. 

 Neuromuscular Therapy

NMT is a specialized form of manual therapy that uses static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons, and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system. 

Specific Deep Tissue Massage

Using deep, precise strokes, the therapist works to lengthen the muscle fibers, restore balance, and reestablish structural and functional integrity to the greatest degree possible for the client. SDTM focuses on specific muscle groups and chronic stiffness patterns.

Medical Massage

An outcome-focused modality that is frequently used with individuals who are recovering from injuries or surgical procedures and is often prescribed by doctors and other medical professionals. Medical Massage therapy helps to rehabilitate the unused muscles that have become stiff from disuse following an injury.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage consists of rapid strokes with the intention of helping to release accumulated tension and lactic acid in the overworked muscles. This release helps blood and oxygen return to the muscle, effectively promoting muscle repair. Sports massage, if received as part of a sports program, can help an athlete prevent injury due to overuse. 

Reflexology

Reflexology is a science built around the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all the glands, organs, and systems of the body. By stimulating and applying pressure to the feet or hands, you are increasing circulation and promoting specific bodily and muscular functions. 

Polarity

Developed by Randolph Stone, Polarity therapy attempts to balance the flow of life energy. The body's energy system has positive, negative, and neutral poles and currents. By tuning in to your energy patterns, your therapist can better understand where blockages and congestions may be and use techniques of touch to help restore balance.

Deep Connective Tissue Massage 

DCTM utilizes deep, intense strokes to release myofascial (connective tissue) restrictions and break up any restrictive scar tissue in the body, including adhesions (chronic knots). It has also been known to help relieve chronic tension, increase the body's range of motion, improve posture, and restore the length and flexibility to the fascia (the fibrous tissue that surrounds the muscles and organs), by normalizing the tissue and improving the strength and overall health of the entire fascial system (connective tissues throughout the entire body). 

 Craniosacral Therapy 

Craniosacral Therapy, developed by Oliver Nash, is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of   the Craniosacral system, which surrounds, nourishes, and protects the brain and spinal cord.  Using touch no heavier than the weight of a small coin, skilled practitioners can monitor craniosacral rhythm at key body areas to pinpoint the source of an obstruction or stress. They can then assist the natural movement of the fluid and related soft tissue to help the body self-correct.   

Harmonyum

The "Harmonyum Healing System" activates the original seed and awakens the threefold soul, born of the threefold spirit, from the threefold body into consciousness and self-knowledge.  It is a gentle, healing, and non-invasive process that releases a huge amount of divine love, peace, and light healing energy in the recipient. This release of divine healing love creates a wonderful feeling of cosmic peace along with a healing relaxation in those who are receiving this treatment. Harmonyum brings the mind into an agreeable state and is especially helpful for those practicing meditation.

Shiatsu

A Japanese therapy based on the principles of traditional acupuncture points in Chinese medicine, Shiatsu is a five-finger pressure technique that concentrates on unblocking the flow of life energy (chi) and restoring the balance in the various meridians on the body.  The benefits of Shiatsu massage may include pain relief, feelings of euphoria and a strengthening of the body's resistance to disease and disorder.
