Energetic Dry Needle Neural Therapy - Dry Needle Neural Therapy is a technique that provides pain relief and aids in return of function and mobility. It is performed by medically trained licensed health care professionals such as nurses, med techs, and doctors. These professionals are instructed initially with their formal education and have added additional training in order to perform Neural Therapy. It originated with Dr. Huneke in the 1930’s during his consolidation of knowledge on the Autonomic Nervous System. This therapy works on the autonomic ganglia (nerve groups controlling internal organs), peripheral nerves (nerves controlling the extremities, such as arms and legs), scars, glands, acupressure points, trigger points, and segmental points (nerve points controlling segments of the body). Energetic Dry Needle Neural Therapy applies pressure with fingers and then insertion of small hypodermic needles. After insertion energy is released. Guided Imagery can be added upon request. $110.00 per session

Cranial Sacral Therapy - CST is a holistic healing assessment and technique that uses light pressure and gentle energetic touch to balance the cranium, spine, and sacral area which includes the nerve ganglion sites, cerebral spinal fluid, and soft tissues of the central nervous system.

It treats neck pain, headaches, stiffness, back pain, TMJ, sciatica, stress, and more. This is light to moderate touch therapy performed on a fully clothed individual. 60 minute session $125.00

Chakra Balancing - This is a service in which the energy of the chakras is brought to a well functioning and harmonious state. Balancing consists in establishing sufficient and consistent flow where there is not enough, regulating energy where there’s too much, and aligning where there’s distortion or displacement. This is carried out by using light touch and work in the energy field. Guided Imagery and pendulums may be added by some practitioners. 60 minute session $110.00

Reiki - Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy and flows within and around us and nourishes the organs and cells of our body, supporting them in their vital functions. When the flow of this life force energy is disrupted, it causes diminished function and energetic blockages in the tissues of our physical body, leaving it vulnerable to illness or disease. This method of healing is a gentle, yet powerful, therapy that uses chi (energy) to remove the blockages, restore balance, and empower the body’s natural healing abilities, positively affecting the body-mind-spirit connection on all levels, leading to greater well-being. The practitioner will use a combination of both hands on and off approach working slightly above the body in the client’s energy field. During a session the client relaxes on a massage table, staying fully dressed with their shoes off. 60 minute session $110.00
