Spinal Touch Treatment--What is it and how does it work?
Spinal Touch is a simple yet powerful technique for realigning the body’s center of gravity. Re-alignment is done solely through a unique muscle relaxation technique. Are your shoulder and hips level? Would a line down your side connect your ear, shoulder, hip, knee and ankle? Does your body show hidden signs of distortion and distress? If you’re not standing erect, you could be a candidate for health problems. The body’s center of gravity is located around the junction of the 5th lumbar vertebra and the 1st sacral segment. If the center of gravity is displaced, then the balanced, dynamic tension of the paraspinal muscles is disturbed. This can affect the nerves, leading to pain and dysfunction. Also the balance of the body can be affected, so that the body’s innate healing abilities are also affected. Spinal Touch assesses the positions of the center of gravity and any postural distortions. Stress and strain often lead to these distortions. This simple technique restores the balance of the center of gravity and corrects posture. This frees the paraspinal muscles and, in turn, the vertebrae, nerves and innate healing abilities of the body. As a result pain reduces and functionality increases. Spinal Touch is a non-force, thirty minute procedure that does not treat conditions or illnesses, but people, because “in the body there is healing”.

Massage treats Arthritis, Back Pain, Headaches, TMJ, Fibromyalgia, MS, Carpal Tunnel, Sports Injuries, Insomnia, Depression and more. Massage reduces stress and anxiety, increasing blood circulation, lymph function and oxygen levels while creating a mental awareness of your body’s needs.

Reiki is a hands-on healing art of channeling Universal Life Force Energy. It is peaceful, quiet and relaxing. It creates a change of awareness enabling your body to balance its energy, promoting self-healing. I offer full body sessions or can integrate Reiki into Massage and Spinal Touch sessions.

With over 9 years of experience in massage and bodywork, I draw upon the following techniques from which you can choose any combination: Deep Tissue and Swedish Massage, Aromatherapy and Flower Essences Therapy, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Acupressure, Reiki, Energy Mapping, and Meditation Instruction.
Aromatherapy is the art and science of using essential oils for therapeutic purposes. Essential oils are highly concentrated odorous extracts of a plant’s natural oils.

They effect us on a physical level when applied topically by entering the blood stream after passing through the tissues of the body, but they also have a very powerful emotional effect. Our sense of smell is our most immediate sense and registers first in the oldest part of our brain – the part that is responsible for emotional behavior related to survival. We learn to associate a smell with a particular emotion in an unconscious and instinctual way and this sets off a chain reaction within our nervous and hormonal systems which in turn influences a wide range of body functions and organs. As a massage therapist and bodyworker, I can put this emotional association to good use by helping clients connect the blends I use with feelings of well being, relaxation, calmness, and healing. I use only 100% pure and therapeutic grade essential oils from organic or wild crafted plant sources or from plants farmed without the use of pesticides.

Flower Essences do not have a scent and contain no chemical properties of the plants from which they are derived. They are made by infusing the flowers of a plant in water through sunlight and are believed to hold the energetic life force or vibrational matrix of a particular flower. They hold a pattern of wholeness around a particular theme, and when we take them into our being (flower essences can be applied topically or taken internally), we are given an opportunity to resonate with that wholeness.

During a massage session, you can choose from several lotions containing essential oil and flower essence blends to help relax, calm, balance, or purify. You can also receive a session that uses the subtle medicine of plants through the topical application of essential oils and flower essences along with guided meditations to gently clear blockages, replenish, heal, or stabilize energy.

Sacred Essence is a retail and wholesale line of Vibrational Medicine Blends combining pure Essential Oils and Flower Essences. Each blend comes with a prayer and meditation, surrounding you with a specific vibration of wholeness to address a particular healing theme. They are mixed in a base of Jojoba oil to be applied topically, or come as a Mister to be sprayed around the body or indoor spaces. Custom blends are also available.

Plant medicine is a wonderful way to help heal the disconnection between humans and nature, between body and soul. When we experience a plant’s essence in a healing setting, we can begin to know again that spiritual forces are an integral and inseparable part of our human experience and the physical world.
