Release, Relax, Rest - we have two sessions in our treatment room designed around massage and restoration. The treatments are designed to enhance the body's innate healing mechanisms to resolve the physical and emotional effects of trauma, pain, and dysfunction.
Release, Relax, Rest: Sarah P. has put together two types of sessions exclusively for the Mind and Motion treatment room.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, deeply relaxing hands-on treatment. Using soft touch, it works with the tide-like pulsation of the Craniosacral System, which comprises the membranes and fluid that surround, nourish, and protect the brain and spinal cord. By following this subtle rhythm of the body, restrictions in the bones and connective tissues surrounding the central nervous system can release and re-balance. This enhances the body's innate healing mechanisms to resolve the physical and emotional effects of trauma, pain, and dysfunction.
It is a wonderful restorative treatment for a variety of issues including TMJ, fibromyalgia, headaches, brain and spinal cord injuries, PTSD, stress, scoliosis, dental trauma, chronic neck and back pain, anxiety, and depression. It also serves as a preventive health measure.
Massage therapy sessions are tailored to the individual’s needs and condition of their body. Multiple techniques may be utilized including deep tissue, facial stretching, sensory re-patterning, polarity, lymphatic drainage, and circulatory massage. Tension is not met with force; instead, the amount of pressure used is dictated by the pace at which the tissues are able to release and soften. Massage is an excellent way to alleviate stress, release toxins, reduce muscle tension, and increase function, performance, and sense of well-being.
