BODYWORK SERVICES

 

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

REIKI

I Nourish clients by holding space with a calm and centered presence.

I Align clients by restoring balance and well being in mind and body.

I specialize in pre and post frenotomy bodywork for infants using an individualized approach for each client and family. 

 

As an IBCLC, I often saw families struggle with the symptoms caused by tethered oral tissue (TOT): A restriction in the mouth caused by a tongue, lip, or buccal ties.  Such restrictions can be responsible for breastfeeding difficulties such as:

-shallow latch

-nipple damage 

-slow weight gain 

-colic and reflux symptoms

-mastitis 

-difficulty staying on the breast

-jaundice

-engorgement

-over supply

-frustration and discouragement

 

“The presence of tongue tie triples the risk of weaning in the first week of life.” (Ricke et al., 2005)


When visual markers of an oral restriction were observed, I recommended clients see a preferred provider for a functional assessment as well as seek bodywork pre and post release. When paired with a release, I saw firsthand how CranioSacral Therapy contributed to improvements in latch, comfort at the breast, and changes in tongue and jaw movement. As I obtained continuing education in tongue tie release habilitation, it became evidently clear and a natural next step for me to combine my massage therapy and lactation backgrounds and complete CranioSacral Therapy training. I can now focus on the optimal timing of TOT releases, provide bodywork and exercises, and support for families.

 

REIKI

Reiki Healing is a hands-on healing practice. The intended result of receiving Reiki is a balanced physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being. Reiki is being used today in clinics and hospitals all over the world to support health, wellness, and transition.

 

There is no expected experience during a Reiki treatment. Each session is unique for the individual who receives it.

 

The most common results of Reiki treatment include:

·   Reduction in stress

·   Increased relaxation

·   Improved Sleep

·   Reduction in exhaustion and nausea during pregnancy

·   Restored general balance & well-being in mind and body

 

Just like meditation, or exercise, the effects of Reiki are cumulative. While one session can work wonders, repeated, regular Reiki treatments can invite significant improvement and the results will be much more profound.

Reiki is one of the leading safe energy medicine approaches. - C. Norman Shealy, M.D. Ph.D.
