AromaTouch Technique  This doTerra essential oil technique was created to address four systemic constants: stress, toxic insult, inflammatory response and autonomic imbalance. Recognizing that these are the common factors at the foundation of illness in the body, this technique was developed to manage these systemic constants and return the body to a state of balance.Each oil used in the AromaTouch Technique has been selected specifically for its individual therapeutic benefit and aroma. The technique addresses common negative factors that influence health and helps the body return to a state of homeostasis via a four-step process centered on Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) oils and simple had techniques. AromaTouch will enhance essential oil activity and stimulate known body meridian and energy zones while balancing body systems and function*

Active Isolated Stretching   AIS is a manual technique that combines a series of short, controlled stretches with intervals of relaxation, which overrides your muscles tendency to contract when stretched tight. When the muscle is at its full range, a gentle stretch is held for no longer than 2 seconds, released and controlled back to the starting position. This ensures a continuous supply of blood, oxygen, lymphatic fluids, and nutrition, while stimulating waste removal and enforcing the neural process. Optimal flexibility requires less energy expenditure in movement, allowing for increased stamina and performance,  enhancement of speed, agility and strength. Flexibility promotes improved blood circulation and oxygenation, nourishing cells, tissues and organs, restoring health and wellness.

Cranial/Structural Core Distortion Release  Focuses on relieving the distortion of the SBS joint at the base of the cranium, allowing it to come back into proper alignment with the spine. This causes structural compensations begin to release throughout the body, relieving stress on the joints, spine, and discs, and allowing proper rotation of the hips , resulting in reduced back and hip pain, greater flexibility and range of motion.

Cranial/Structural Frontal/Occipital Decompression  This technique involves manipulation of the soft tissue restrictions of the cranium to restore full range of motion and balance, while stimulating both the lymphatic and glymphatic systems.  This combination of soft tissue myofascial therapies has shown to shorten recovery time, and reduce symptoms in  clients who have had mild traumatic brain injury, and has shown to promote improvements in clients with memory issues.

 

Cupping Therapy  The suction from the cups lifts the superficial tissue to allow blood flow in to the area, promoting healing of the tissue, separating the fascia, and stimulating the blood and lymph circulatory systems simultaneously to work more efficiently. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines,and rheumatism.  Common side effects are lightheadedness, or dizziness and redness or irritation at the treatment sites. Sweating and mild nausea have occasionally been reported.

Traditional Thai Bodywork   Sometimes called “Yoga Massage”, Thai massage was originally practiced in Buddhist monasteries as part of traditional medicine.  It is done on a padded floor mat, with the client wearing comfortable, stretchy clothes, and combines passive stretching and movement of joints with several touch techniques and work along energy meridians. Using slow, rhythmic movements, the therapist applies compressions with thumbs, palms, elbows, knees and feet to harmonize vital energies.

Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) 

Vibrational Sound Therapy is Sound Massage for deep relaxation. VST combines the gentle vibrations and tones of Therapeutic Himalayan Singing Bowls to induce an immediate relaxed state.  By introducing sound waves (the musical notes & tones of the bowls) into the body with the vibrations of the bowls, it is a method that activates the parasympathetic nervous system, putting the body in a deep state of rest and relaxation, which can help relieve stress & anxiety, reduce chronic pain, lower blood pressure, decrease fatigue and increase energy, boost the immune system, ease blockages and tension, increase blood flow, reduce muscle tension, calm the mind & body in conjunction, help with sleep issues and improve emotional well-being and mental clarity and focus. VST can also help reduce muscle pain from tight, tense muscles and muscle pulls, back pain from disks, lupus, fibromyalgia, arthritis and many other chronic pain issues. 

     In the simplest terms, VST massages the outside and inside of your body and relaxes your mind with sound. VST also provides a more comfortable type of relaxation therapy as the client remains fully clothed and may also be covered by a sheet if requested. The bowls are specifically engineered and hand hammered out of hospital grade, clean metal to provide vibration over sound, which penetrates deeply into the body through the fluid in our bodies. Our bodies truly do absorb music.

     Stress is considered the #1 proxy killer and can cause a host of health problems. One of the best preventative measures you can take against disease and illness is to take the time to take care of your body. VST for deep relaxation can help reduce and relieve stress and anxiety and can also help with PTSD, depression and sleep issues.
