Massage Therapy

By Dr. Bonnie Wick

Reiki

This non invasive treatment for stress reduction and relaxation allows the recipient to experience an unlimited supply of “life force energy.” Reiki treats the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. Benefits include feeling a deep state of relaxation, peace, security and well being. Many members of the main stream health care community now embrace the role that Reiki plays in bolstering the immune system.

Myofacial Release

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)

The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.

Craniosacral Therapy

The craniosacral system (cranio means head and sacral refers to the area at the base of the spine) includes the brain and spinal cord. They are bathed in a craniosacral fluid that has a rhythmic pulse, similar to blood pressure.
The craniosacral therapist senses the pulse and looks for any subtle restrictions in the flow of craniosacral fluid. Restrictions are beleived to be the cause of poor health, especially conditions related to the brain, spine, and nervous system.

Rock n’ Rain

This powerful, non invasive healing protocol uses pure essential oils, warm pack, gentle rocking, reflexology and cranial sacral balancing techniques. The intent is to assist the body in finding structural and physical balance through the antiviral, anti bacterial and anti inflammatory action of the oils and supportive bodywork techniques. This treatment combination brings opportunities for emotional release, relief from neck and back pain, increased immune system response and a general increase in health and well being.

Reflexology

The holistic energy based modality works through the nervous electrical, chemical and magnetic systems of the body. Manual techniques are applied to the feet’s reflex map which corresponds to every body part. Applying pressure at specific points dissipates energy blocks and breaks down crystalline structures to release toxins. Reflexology improves the circulation of fluids and elimination, reduces pain by releasing natural endorphins , normalizes body functions, rejuvenates feet and feels fabulous!

Contouring Body Wrap

Developed by a UCLA bio-chemist, this wrap process was created to encourage circulatory and lymphatic flow in patients. It was meant for those suffering from diseases that inhibit circulation. This increased flow of the lymphatic and circulatory system also cleanses tissue resulting in healthy inch loss. and body contouring. Benefits also include 1. 4-14 inches loss with each treatment 2. Tones, tightens and restores skin elasticity 3. Helps reduce and dissolve cellulite 4. Helps to eliminate toxins 5. Warm, luxurious, comfortable pampering
