“Wellness is a connection of paths: knowledge and action.”  Joshua Welch.

 

     

  • Reflexology

    #2Reflexology is a holistic treatment originating in Egypt over four thousand years ago. The treatment works by stimulating the nerves in a specific area of the body to promote healing. Reflexology differs from acupressure and acupuncture in that reflexology is based on the belief that each part of the body corresponds to a particular area on the feet or hands. Reflexology activates the natural healing process by improving circulation through the physical stimulation of the reflex points. Modern alternative medicine has shown reflexology to be a beneficial complementary therapy for a wide variety of ailments, as well as stress induced conditions.
    A reflexology treatment can greatly reduce stress and create overall body relaxation. Decreased stress improves the body’s natural immune system, promoting health and wellness. If you would like a mixture of both traditional massage and reflexology, book our 90 Minute Massage Plus ReflexologyTreatment. Your body will thank you!

     

  • Aromatherapy

    #3Aromatherapy is a form of alternative treatment using the natural or essential oils found in the flowers, bark, leaves, stems and roots plant life. It is believed that these oils can impact the human psyche and physical body, in a positive and healing way. The use of essential oils for therapy is ancient, but the formal use of the term aromatherapy dates back to the early 1900’s, when European scientists, doctors and chemists first began using essential oils to treat ailments and injuries. It was Jean Valnet, a French surgeon who pioneered the medicinal use of essential oils during World War II.
    The human olfactory system is powerful and sensitive. Aromatherapy is used to stimulate the limbic brain, which controls emotions and evokes memories. This stimulation can serve to relax the nervous system, which, along with massage therapy, can be a very effective way to achieve positive effects on a number of physical and psychological disorders.

  • CranioSacral Therapy

    #4The CranioSacral system consists of the membranes and the cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth (which make up the cranium) down to the sacrum, or tailbone area. CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle method of detection and correction that encourages your own natural healing mechanisms to dissipate these negative effects on our central nervous system. You also benefit from better overall health and resistance to disease. The positive effects of CranioSacral Therapy rely, to a large extent, on your body’s natural self-corrective abilities.

     

Did You Know?

Thalamus means “inner room” in Greek, as it sits deep in the brain at the top of the brainstem.
The thalamus is called the gateway to the cerebral cortex, as nearly all sensory inputs pass through it to the higher levels of the brain.

The path to gaining, or maintaining wellness almost always includes more than one form of ‘therapy’.  In addition to the various types of treatments we offer in this location, we will happily suggest or recommend other therapists that we feel you would benefit from.

We also feel that regular physical activity, healthy eating, balance between work and play, adequate rest and restorative social interactions, are all essential elements of a healthy lifestyle.    It is our intention to support you in finding ways to achieve this.
