Craniosacral therapy (CST) stems from osteopathy. It is a gentle hands on technique used to remedy distortions of structure and function within the skull, spine, membranes and connective tissue throughout the body. Cerebrospinal fluid surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. By tuning into the production and absorption of this fluid, a practitioner is able to locate restrictions and areas of trauma. A light touch of approximately 5 grams (the weight of a nickel) is used to release restrictions through out the body. Resulting in improvements in function of the central nervous system, circulation, organs, immune system and over all wellness.

Rei (Ray) = Universal
Ki (Key) = Energy
In Japanese Reiki means “Universal life energy”. It is a form of hands on or off energy healing. It brings about rebalancing on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. It can be used to manage physical pain, aid the body in releasing illness or emotional trauma.
Originating in Japan as a personal Spiritual development practice, Reiki evolved into a light touch, energy based Holistic modality. Reiki works as a support system to the body re-establishing the normal energy flow of Ki (Qi, Prana, Life force energy) throughout the system, which can enhance and accelerate the bodys natural healing abilities.
A standard treatment involves the placing of hands above or on various positions of the head, neck, shoulders, torso, knees and feet and can be done while the clients is sitting up or lying down.
Many people experience Reiki as a deeply radiant heat that soothes and eases physical and emotional pain and always seems to impress those who claim to have difficulty relaxing.
