what is

Body-Mind Therapy integrates the tissues of the body with the related emotional and spiritual patterns to promote healing. Our systems are made up of component parts (physical, emotional, spiritual). Pain is often due to an imbalance of two or three of these components. Body-Mind Therapy addresses all three component parts, and the imbalance as a whole, which results in less pain and richer emotional health.

For example, a client came in with Migraine Headaches but also had a history of anxiety and depression. With Body-Mind Therapy, in addition to working with the tissue, he also worked on mental and emotional patterns. He noticed a dramatic improvement with the migraines AND his anxiety and depression!

CranioSacral system (cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord). Using a soft touch no greater than 5 grams (the weight of a nickel), there is a release of restrictions in the CranioSacral system therefore improving the function of the central nervous system. It is similar to waiting and listening for any rhythm in the body, such as heart rate or breathing rate. It involves patience and trust. I listen with my hands and wait for the sensation to arrive, tuning into the internal matrix.

uftBeyond the body, beyond energy, lies a matrix of consciousness which permeates every aspect of our world. This dynamic, ever expansive matrix forms a single field from which all conscious life flows. This field is called the Unifield™ (originally referred to as The Unified Field). All physical, mental, emotional and energetic patterns known to our world originate from this single source. Present in our every experience, these patterns form the very fabric of our reality. The most subtle shift or change in these patterns can yield immense expansion in our consciousness and bring enormous transformation to one's life

Lymphatic drainage is a holistic approach to promoting a healthy lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels and ducts that move fluid throughout the body and is responsible for moving toxins away from healthy cells and carrying germ-fighting materials to cells when they are under attack by viruses. Though fluid moves through the lymphatic system, it does not have its own pumping mechanism. Lymphatic drainage is a type of therapy that is intended to help the body produce a free-flowing lymphatic system.

Muscle energy technique (or MET) is based on the principle of reciprocal inhibition, a theory that explains that muscles on one side of a joint will always relax to accommodate the contraction of muscles on the other side of that joint when indirect pressure is applied. MET is often applied to patients who suffer from muscle spasms.

Muscle energy techniques are applied to a patient in order to lengthen shortened or spastic muscles. This procedure is performed when a patient is asked to contract a muscle for approximately 5-seconds against an anti-force applied by the therapist. The muscle contraction is performed by the client 2 or 3 times in a row in the hopes to stretch the muscle further each time.

Reiki-Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy".
