Manual Lymphatic Drainage (lymphatic massage)
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle, non-invasive technique to help decrease edema/fluid congestion due to acute and chronic conditions. This modality uses a light, repetitive skin stretching movement to help move lymphatic fluid from the affected area back to the appropriate lymph node groups for filtration and decongestion of the tissues. Manual lymphatic drainage technique is a method to safely treat: orthopedic edema, venous insufficiency edema stage 1, whole-body tissue detoxification, symptoms of lupus, arthritis, RA, osteoarthritis, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, lymphatic facial detoxification, and swelling due to surgical procedures and trauma and much more.

Reflexology is a form of bodywork based on the theory of zone therapy, in which specific areas of the body are pressed on the hands or feet to stimulate corresponding areas in other parts of the body. Foot reflexology , in which pressure techniques are applied only to the feet, is the most common form of reflexology.
Aroma Acupoint Therapy
Aroma Acupoint Therapy is a gentle, safe and profoundly effective treatment modality that utilizes the energetic potential of pure essential oils paired with acupressure points. Treatment involves placing particular oils on specific acupoints or reflex zones on the body to trigger energetic changes that assist in helping a state of balance to occur. Aroma Acupoint Therapy works on the basis of mutual resonance through the systematic and intentional combination of essential oils and acupoints, resulting in a more significant effect than using either of the treatment methods alone.
Cupping massage is a technique that uses small glass cups to apply gentle negative pressure to the skin causing the superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn upward into the cup. This method assists in loosening tight muscles, encouraging blood flow to the affected area and sedates the nervous system. Athough only the superficial muscle layer is drawn upward into the cup, cupping impacts the deep tissue layer as well and is an excellent modality to address deep tissue discomfort and increase range of motion in affected areas.
Thai Yoga Massage
Thai massage is an ancient bodywork system designed to unblock trapped energy and improve vitality by applying pressure along energy pathways. Thai massage uses slow, often meditative, rhythmic pressure and yoga-like stretches together with gentle rocking motions.

Guided Self Study
Using mindful awareness, guided self study is a method to support self-discovery, healing and growth to study the core organizers of our experiences that show up as the beliefs we have of ourselves, our relationships and the world we live in. With mindful curiosity we can begin to notice how we each have unconscious limiting beliefs that prevent us from having what we want in life, and begin to transform our experiences in a way that helps us remember the experiences we long for and who we want to be.
