Treatment begins with you being induced into a semi-sleep state enabling the therapist to better connect with your own intuitive healing system. This process encourages a deeper level of healing on both the physical and emotional planes as the therapist works on the parasympathetic plane to uncover and release energy blockages in the neuromuscular and digestive systems. During treatment you will be aware of the subtle rhythms and strokes as the therapist restores
balance back to the body with a combination of deep tissue work and fascial unwinding. The session ends with Cranial Osteopathy to reboot the neuromuscular system into accepting the physiological changes or adjustments that occurred during the treatment. This therapy is deeply relaxing as it works with the body to facilitate healing leaving the patient feeling lighter and refreshed!
