Each treatment will be different depending on the many variables of your condition, stages, etc. These are the most common massage and bodywork modalities we integrate in our bodywork sessions.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
‘It is within the stillness that healing happens’
Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy is a healing modality that grew out of osteopathy. It is a gentle yet profound non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. It addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum to release compressions which increases and normalizes the flow of Cerebrospinal fluid restoring health to a range of health conditions. It unwinds fascia restrictions eliminating pain, compensation, and stress from injuries, surgeries, or accidents.
According to the National Headache Foundation, approximately 28 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches. In a study published in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine, researchers found that participants who received Craniosacral Therapy had better quality sleep and fewer migraines than participants who didn’t. Effects lasted up to three weeks after therapy ended.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is effective for children and adults in most health conditions including the following:
- Migraines and Headaches
- Chronic Neck and Back Pain
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Effects of Stress and Tension
- Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
- Chronic Fatigue Pre/Post surgery

Chi Nei Tsang
Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) came into being millennia ago in the mountain ranges of Taoist China. It was used by monks in monasteries to help detoxify, strengthen and refine their bodies to maintain the high energy required to perform the highest levels of spiritual practices. CNT often referred to as Chinese Abdominal Massage is effective, soothing, exquisite work.
Through focusing on the abdomen, Chi Nei Tsang brings about healing from within, from the center, the roots, the origin of life itself. CNT addresses the origin of health problems with abdominal manipulations to relieve the body of excess waste and stagnation by improving elimination. CNT stimulates the lymphatic system increasing detoxification which strengthens the immune system and resistance to diseases. Patients using Chi Nei Tsang before and after surgery recover better and faster.
CNT helps us to deal better with our emotional life. All unprocessed emotions are stored in the ‘gut’ waiting to be addressed. Poor emotional digestion is also one of the main reasons for ill health. CNT facilitates the unfolding of emotions making it possible for us to evolve and grow in the direction of our better self increasing Self-awareness. CNT is used successfully in combination with psychotherapy.
