Good self-care is especially important during pregnancy, when hormonal changes, nutritional needs, and the baby’s weight stress your body, and the impending life changes stress your mind. Prenatal massage can relieve muscle cramps and tension and reduce stress in the hips, lower back, feet, and other areas. It’s also a wonderful way to release your emotional stress, restore your energy, and radiate well-being to your baby. We are fully trained in safe and gentle prenatal massage techniques. Depending on what works best for your comfort, you will spend most of the session lying on your side, propped up and made comfortable with nice fluffy pillows.

We like to call shiatsu therapy “acupuncture without needles.” This therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicine and works with energy channels, called “meridians,” that run through the body. Chinese medicine views ailments as blockages of your energy, or chi. To bring the body back into balance, your therapist uses her palms and thumbs to put gentle pressure on these channels. The therapist may stretch and rotate your arms and legs. For this extremely relaxing and therapeutic session, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing. We can perform this service on a massage table or a traditional comfy futon mat on the floor — you get to choose.

It is a gentle healing technique administered through the “laying on of hands.” reiki practitioners believe that if your life force energy is low, you can become stressed, ill, and unhappy. Reiki restores your energy and promotes your innate desire to be healthy and happy. For this treatment, you will lie fully clothed on a massage table. Many clients describe the energy as a radiant glow resulting in a feeling of peace and serenity.

NMT seeks to eliminate pain, chronic or acute, by addressing five key elements that cause pain:

Ischemia: the lack of blood flow to soft tissues that causes hypersensitivity to touch.

Trigger points: highly irritated points in muscles that refer pain to other parts of the body.

Nerve entrapment/compression: pressure on a nerve by soft tissue, cartilage or bone.

Postural distortions: imbalance of the muscular system resulting from the movement of the body off the longitudinal and horizontal planes. Longtime poor postural habits are the most common cause of pain from this element.

Biomechanical dysfunction: imbalance of the musculoskeletal system resulting in faulty movement patterns (i.e., poor lifting habits, computer keyboarding, bad mechanics in a golf swing or tennis stroke).

 

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a specialized form of manual therapy. A therapist trained in NMT is educated in the physiology of the nervous system and its effect on the muscular and skeletal systems. The Neuromuscular Therapist is further educated in kinesiology and biomechanics as well as how to put it to practical use in a clinical or medical environment.
By definition, Neuromuscular Therapy is the utilization of 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. In a healthy individual, nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function and thought) to the body very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction. It is therefore necessary to stabilize low levels of neurological activity to maintain normal function and overall health

Discover how effortless and pleasurable meditation can be with Lisa using drum sounds for deep meditation.   Shamanic drumming is an ancient form of rhythm healing.   With a short guided meditation and the   vibrational sounds of the drum, you will leave feeling anchored to your center and ready to conquer and create!   A short question and answer period is included with the 45 minutes should you have any questions after the meditation.
