Repetitive Use Injury Therapy

This style of bodywork is a unique injury therapy that combines compression, extension, movement and breath to assist in the relief from pain.  With RUIT, scar tissue is broken up, the muscle is lengthened, muscle memory is restored and relieve from pain starts immediately.  Combining Myofascial Release along with hot Bamboo-fusion therapy can have amazing results even after one session.

Cranial Release Technique (CRT)

CRT is a natural, hands on approach to releasing the body’s capacity to heal and regenerate itself.  In one minute, it has profound effects on overall health and well-being.  It works to restore proper function to the nervous system and proper balance to the body.  Some of the positive effects are changing gait, rebalancing the body, reducing aches and pain, headaches, as well as feeling more energized and being able to sleep better.

Myofascial Release Technique

Myofascial Release is a bodywork technique is focusing on fascia, which is a connective tissue system that covers 40% of the body.  It covers the bones, ligaments, muscles, and organs as a protective layer.  Fascia moves in multiple directions, which gives it flexible, but has limited stretch.

Poor posture, injury, illness, or stress can negatively affect body alignment and cause fascia to become restricted. It is believed to be the cause of most pain and impair movement. A gentle form of stretching and manual compression is said to restore flexibility to this connective tissue and provide relief from restrictions and pain.

When you work with the fasciae before you work on the muscles, you will get better results.  Adding heat to the mix from the hot bamboo can result in the ease of releasing connective tissue and stress on the muscles.

Bamboo-Fusion Massage

Bamboo-fusion massage is using hot bamboo all over the body with emphasis on specific muscles.  It works extremely well with Repetitive Use Injury Therapy is effective with repetitive injuries such as carpal tunnel, overall body pain and it gives an overall well-being to the patient.  I apply light even pressure with the bamboo tools to relax you and your muscles.  When session is over, everyone feels more energized and nurtured.

Deep Tissue Session

Deep tissue work involves focusing specifically using a variety of techniques, which include stripping, trigger point therapy, and deep continuous pressure.   The more you relax into the session, the deeper the pressure becomes.  It can be painful at times, especially when injuries are involved but the results release painful trigger points and pain from your body.

How Does Massage Affect the Baby?

You and your baby will feel and share similar experiences of pregnancy. When you are stressed out, your baby also becomes hyperactive and agitated. Conversely, when you receive a massage and relax, the endorphins you naturally secrete (those “feel good” compounds) traverse the placenta and soothe the baby.  What has been reported is most babies born to women who receive regular weekly or semi-monthly massage are calmer, have sweeter dispositions, gain weight faster, have less colic and sleep better than their non-massaged counterparts.

Thai Table Massage

Thai Massage is known as the dance.  The practitioner is constantly moving some part of your body.   It is also known as the Lazy Man’s Yoga.  Thai massage works on the body’s energy lines with the practitioner using their hands, elbows, feet and knees and includes passive yoga poses and breathing. Thai massage practitioners move their client into various poses and massage specific points within the body (acupoints) to release blockages in the body’s energy lines and stimulate the energy flow, increasing flexibility and releasing stress and tension.

Thai Massage is traditionally done on a mat on the floor, which I have been trained in.  Due to size of the massage room, I am only able to do Thai Table Massage.

Reiki: Usui and Shambala

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning cosmic or universal life force. Healing means restoring harmony to mind, body and spirit. By using gentle touch, the energy in your body will be balanced, thereby creating healing.

Dr Mikao Usui founded Reiki.  Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have been trained in the traditions passed down from master to student.  There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment. The only prerequisite is the desire to be healed, and for physical, mental, spiritual and emotional well-being.

A Reiki session is moving energy and working with balancing the body.  Reiki can either makes you feel energized or relaxed depending on what is going on with you.  You may feel heat coming out of my hands or a general warm feeling.

The Benefits of Reiki

It can help you:

  • Sleep
  • Reduce high blood pressure
  • Relieve asthma
  • Migraines
  • Stress
  • Relieve pain
  • Accelerate healing of wounds, injuries and infections

Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly, but more chronic illness takes longer. Whatever your need, you should feel very relaxed after a treatment.

Reiki supports all forms of treatment both orthodox and complementary. Healing is a process of restoring harmony and promoting emotional growth. If there is a longstanding imbalance it may take many sessions to obtain lasting relief from symptoms, since many changes may have to take place before the cause is reached.   Andrea has been trained in both Usui and Shambala Reiki and is a Reiki Master.

Sound Healing

The use of sound brings you to a whole new level of healing.  Using my voice, crystal bowls, Tibetan bowl,  Acutonic tuning forks and drumming will help move energy and open up your chakras.  Each person resonates differently with sound therapy.  It assists you with the process of moving through emotional blocks.  Sound therapy can be added to any of my sessions.

Axialtonal Light Grid Therapy – The Blueprint for Human Beings

The Axialtonal Light grid lines utilizes 8 lines of light that are above the meridians.  These waves of light/sound are a standing grid for human consciousness, and exist both prior to, and well beyond the duration of physical reality.  What the axialtonal work does is re-calibrate you as a clearer receptor for your consciousness to emerge in and anchor the 5-D frequencies.

Axiatonal Alignment is more than a healing modality it is an initiation into Divine Awareness. As a healing modality it re-alignment of the physical body and opens blocked meridians to allow the free flow of energies that may have been trapped due to our resistant or denial of a spiritual experience.  As we open to the free flow of energy, we will release all cellular memories that we have been afraid to look at. This may result in memory flashbacks, so we can look at these moments from a different prospective. We may see that our judgment of these moments come from a distorted prospective and by looking at these experiences in a new light we can let go of what may be a distorted judgment. When this happens a healing happens at the cause level.
