Lymphatic Drainage

 

Lymphatic drainage is a specialized and gentle technique used to increase lymph flow and encourage the natural drainage of the lymph which carries cellular waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart and into the blood. The lymphatic flow can stagnate for many reasons, such as swelling, chronic inflammation, lack of physical activity, stress, fatigue, emotional shock, age, poorly fitted bras, or bras worn for an excessive amount of time. The lymphatic system enhances your immune system, strengthens the muscles and toughens your connective tissue, aids in tissue regeneration while normalizing organ function, and enhancing ones metabolism promotes detoxification, decreases stress and facilitates healing.

 

 

Craniosacral Therapy 

 

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and wellness. CST addresses the body and the nervous system by tuning in to the body's innate rhythms. It's useful for treating musculoskeletal issues to gently release restrictions in movement to restore normal motion to the bones, joints and soft tissue. Using a soft touch, about the weight of a nickel, restrictions are released in the craniosacral system to promote relaxation and improve the functioning of the central nervous system. By supporting the body's innate healing processes, CST is used as a preventive therapy for its ability to strengthen resistance to disease. It's is effective for a wide range of issues associated with pain and dysfunction including: headaches/migraines, chronic pain, stress, accidents, injury, digestive problems, chronic fatigue, insomnia, TMJ, physical/emotional trauma, pre/post dental work.
