Thai Yoga Bodywork is a relaxing, passive session that will leave you feeling energized. Sessions are performed fully clothed, with no oils or lotions. The Practitioner utilizes Acupressure Points and Yoga stretches to facilitate circulation and muscle release.
Fascial Release Massage facilitates releases in the web of connective tissue that supports all the organs and systems of the body. Fascia is also responsible for connecting and holding our muscles and bones in place. Fascia moves the muscles; muscles move the bones. Fascia can restrict the movement of our muscles and joints and when freed from restriction, allows for greater range of motion with less pain or impingement.
Structural Integration is a type of alternative medicine which aims to align the human body in the gravitational field. The claimed benefit is that the increased use of balance at finer levels of the neuro-fascial-musculo-skeletal system allows for increased general well-being and physical adaptability and resilience as well as reducing biomechanically caused pain, and controlled trials found that a structural integration session significantly decreases standing pelvic tilt angle, and that structural integration caused a lasting decrease in state anxiety when compared to the control group. Structural Integration practitioners are trained in the application of functional biomechanical and kinesiological analysis and in what they believe are effective ways of changing a client’s structure. Often connective tissue (specifically fascia) is manipulated to allow body segments to shift to a more balanced position. Re-education of the client’s movement patterns and other modalities are commonly used in the belief that they can achieve or support the goal of improved alignment.
Lymphatic Wellness Therapy is a very gentle therapy that has been found to deliver amazing results. By using the Lymphar Pro Fushion instrument along with manual lymphatic facilitation techniques the lymph moves along specific pathways designed by nature to assist the body in healing itself. .
Manual lymphatic drainage as developed by Emil and Estrid Vodder continues to be a highly effective at reducing disorders related to the lymphatic system. The manual technique on its own is very time consuming. In the last 15-20 years technology has been added to facilitate the breaking up of trapped proteins and at the Center for Lymphatic Wellness we use a combination of methods to move things along in a more efficient manner. The Lymphstar Pro and the Lymphstar Pro Fushion have been proven to be a safe and effective therapeutic tool.
The Lymphstar technology is a vibrational energy technology. As such it emits “information” to the energy field of the cells via light frequencies and sound harmonics. It produces this information by way of something called “noble gas ionization.” There is a long tradition of research into the energetic effects of these noble gases. An optimal mixture of xenon and argon is enclosed in Pyrex glass tube. The gases are excited by electrical current. An energy field, or plasma, then radiates from the tube onto the skin and is conducted through the entire bio-energy system. Proteins are re-polarized causing retained fluid and congested areas to FLOW. Stagnation is reversed and the lymph system is now free to perform its cleansing functions!
The Lymphstar is applied by placing the transmission head, or heads on the skin – this is about 15-20% of the actual session with the manual drainage still being the primary portion.
The lymphatic system is a central component of the immune system and protects the body by draining and filtering out waste. Anything we can do to encourage vital and active lymph drainage is an important component of health. The causes of lymphatic congestion range from injuries, surgery, inactivity, poor diet, to emotional/stress states, environmental toxins, hormone imbalance and normal aging processes. When this state occurs the blockages cause a backup in the flow of lymphatic fluid, resulting in swelling or edema in the tissues and in various kinds of “symptoms.” Consequently, toxic waste matter cannot effectively be released from the body, nor can the immune system function at optimum performance. The result is a wide range of dysfunction and disease.
