Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.  It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains. Some of the same strokes are used as in therapeutic massage but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia.

Craniosacral Therapy

We store our life experiences in our bodies. The craniosacral fluid carries the body’s innate intelligence from the brain to the sacrum and throughout the whole system in a series of rhythms. As the practitioner listens to and guides these rhythms through gentle touch, the body can easily unlock and release the residue of trauma stored in the tissues. During a session, you rest fully clothed on a massage table, feeling a light touch as the practitioner monitors your craniosacral rhythm by placing their hands on various meridian points on your body. This gentle technique corrects the sources of pain and dysfunction, allowing the body freedom to heal itself efficiently. As stressors are removed, the body relaxes and is able to find its optimal, balanced state. CST effectively addresses all imbalances, including nervousness, anxiety, addictions, insomnia, pain and injury. Craniosacral enhances the mind-body connection, creating a deep sense of balance, relaxation and ease in the nervous system. After CST sessions, clients have reported experiencing clarity, peacefulness and insight along with the obvious positive change in their physical symptoms.

Integrative Reflexology

Reflexology approaches the body as a complete macrocosm with interrelated systems. It is a holistic discipline which uses the therapist’s hands to apply alternating and firm pressure to stimulate physiological changes in the body. By applying therapeutic pressure to specific points on the hands and feet the zone reflex points and meridian points are activated, this creates beneficial responses in the nervous, electrical and chemical systems. As a “scientific art” reflexology is based on research regarding stress reduction, pain reduction, improvement in blood pressure, support therapy for cancer treatment, post-operative recovery and mitigation of neuro-physical and auto-immune dysfunctions. Reflexology feels good, but it is much more than a good foot massage!

Reiki

This technique is commonly called palm healing or light healing. The technique is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy, qi or ki, flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. The practitioner uses the palms to transfer this universal energy to the client. Reiki has been used to alleviate stress, blocked energy flow, and to promote relaxation and self-healing. Reiki allows for a state of equilibrium. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of living vibrantly and healthfully.

(30 min $50, 60 min $85, 90 min…..$120)

*These sessions are performed while the client relaxes, fully clothed, on a treatment table.

Chakra Healing Therapy

When we experience physical, emotional, mental, or energetic stress or trauma, any one of our chakra energy centers can become imbalanced or depleted, compromising the full spectrum functioning of our energy system. In Chakra Yoga Healing Sessions Brooke Smokelin uses her years of experience as a yoga teacher and sound healer and her knowledge of the chakras as the founder of Chakra Activation Yoga as a thoughtful response to the specific needs of an individual in a nurturing one-on-one environment. It is a session or series of sessions designed with the intention to "ignite your light" and bring your physical body and your energy body back into balance and optimal functioning so that you can radiate your “full spectrum self”.

Chakra Assessment Session:

YOUR FIRST SESSION includes the Chakra Assessment, a diagnostic protocol for determining the energy levels and inter-functioning of each chakra. This technique evaluates how well energy is moving through your chakra system and which chakras need the most attention. Based on the information gleaned from your Assessment, a personalized therapeutic Chakra Yoga program is designed to bring your chakra system back into balance and full-spectrum functioning. (Please note, this might take several sessions to achieve/incorporate this balance.)
