Shiatsu is Japanese for “finger pressure,” and consists of finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other massage techniques along the Meridians. Shiatsu is traditionally performed on a futon mat or massage table with clients fully clothed. Shiatsu practitioners promote it as a way to help people relax and cope with issues such as stress, muscle pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression.
Craniosacral Therapy is a holistic healing practice that uses very light touching to balance the craniosacral system in the body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area.
Somato Emotional Release is a therapeutic process that helps rid the mind and body of residual effects of past trauma and associated negative responses. Following trauma, the body isolates the “energy cyst.” Somato Emotional Release has a goal to help the client physically identify and expel the energy cyst through re-experiencing and resolving incidents. www.upledger.com
Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy. A session is done fully clothed with either a hands off or gentle hands on approach. www.reiki.org

Jin Shin Jyutsu is the art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.
Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.
