Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a light-touch modality that assists your nervous system in returning to a state of harmonious balance. While you are fully clothed, Emily applies gentle pressure you can hardly feel (about 5g, the weight of a nickel) to your spine, head, and torso tissues. Your body uses this gentle touch, traction and intention to re-align in a more beneficial pattern, releasing stress and core traumas in a gentle way.
You may find yourself drifting off, into dreams or elsewhere in your unconscious. As unwinding continues after your session, your dreams may be imbued with clarity and meaning or you may experience physical release. You may find that inhibitions and patterns that plagued you before have simply dissolved.
Emily's clients have reported many benefits including:
- the disappearance of pain, including lower back pain and headaches.
- feeling of emotional freedom as residual body feelings from past relationships were released.
- increased alignment and feelings of wholeness and cohesion.
CST is known to be helpful for headaches, digestive issues, chronic pain, TMJ, scar tissue, emotional and spiritual discord, chronic fatigue, scoliosis and more.
Reiki i & II
meditative. nurturing. integrating.
While you are fully clothed, Emily places her hands gently in a series of positions on your head, torso and feet. Gentle, fundamental life energy flows from the universe through her hands into your body. Your body uses the extra dose of relaxing energy to aid wherever you need it--balancing emotions, healing injury, releasing tension and more. This primordial energy is described as the substrate of creation--the very foundation of potentiality. As such it is a very safe and gentle practice. Reiki has been linked to increased post-operative recovery, and decreased blood loss in surgery, among other things.
Reiki can also be shared through distance. Emily offers distance healing sessions. The session begins with a phone call in which you may share your intention and ask questions. After you hang up, you may rest in a quiet place in which you are able to pay attention to what's happening in your body for about 45 minutes. Emily will complete the session by calling you to check in on anything you would like to share, or any questions that you may have. Reiki is equally effective in person and through distance.
Emily began her study of massage therapy in California at the Diamond Light School of Massage and Healing Arts, known for training therapists in how to take a massage from "great" to "mind-boggling." It stems from the foundation of simple energetic principles of grounding, embodying an open heart, and dedicating oneself to a meditative presence. On a foundation of Swedish massage, Emily learned techniques of deep pressure and meridian-based energetic massage with Shiatsu, and honed her intuition on finding all the sore spots. Deep Tissue training rounded out her base of therapeutic muscular techniques. Hot Stone Massage expanded her repertoire of nature-supported, deeply nurturing bodywork. And Lomi Lomi training taught her to flow like the ocean and honor the spirit. All in all, Emily's massage flows and deepens in a graceful dance, inviting you to inhabit your body more joyfully.
