Deep tissue massage is often confused with deep pressure massage. Deep pressure massage means a constant, strong pressure throughout the session.

Reflexology is a natural healing art that is based on the principal that there are reflexes in the hands and feet that relate to all the parts of the body. It is the activation of specific points on the hands and feet to promote the proper functioning of the body. The idea behind reflexology is that the hands and feet are like condensed maps of the rest of the body; the head, torso, organs, legs and arms are all directly connected to specific areas of the hands and feet.
Benefits of Reflexology:
- Improves Circulation
- Helps to normalize a body condition
- Maintains Health
“For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, ‘Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to he body,’ that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, ‘Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,’ that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the organs in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single organ, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I have no need of you,’ nor again the head to the feet, ‘I have no need of you.’ If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.”
1 Corinthians 12:14-21, 26 R.S.V.
Reiki Healing, also known as palm healing, is a Japanese healing technique which focuses on balancing the energy in a body. The theory behind the practice is quite complex, as it focuses not only on the health of the body but equally the mind and spirit as well.

We are all familiar with the cardiovascular and respiratory rhythms in the body. Like them, another body rhythm – the craniosacral system – influences many body functions. It consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth (the cranium) down to the sacrum or tailbone. Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive manipulative technique focused on finding and correcting imbalances present in the system that are affecting various parts of the body.
Raindrop Therapy is a powerful, non-invasive tool combining the art of aromatherapy with the techniques of Vita Flex and massage in the application of essential oils to various areas of the body to bring structural and electrical alignment. This technique is a revolutionary way to look at bringing balance and harmony to the body — physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Raindrop Therapy originated from the research of D. Gary Young N.D. and a Lakota medicine man almost two decades ago. The Lakota Indians would travel north into Canada to experience the healing powers of the Northern Lights, breathing in the electricity of the lights, exhaling up through the spine. Later when borders were created between the U.S. and Canada, this migration stopped, but a simulated version of the experience took place in sweat huts.
Raindrop Therapy is based on the theory that many spinal misalignments are caused by viruses or bacteria that lie dormant along the spine. These pathogens create inflammation, which in turn, contorts and disfigures the spinal column.
Raindrop Therapy uses a series of essential oils designed to promote overall health, vitality and longevity. The principle oils used are: Valor, thyme, oregano, wintergreen, cypress, peppermint, basil and marjoram. Valor is the most important oil blend because it works on the physical and emotional levels, supporting the electrical and energy alignment of the body. Once the frequencies begin to balance in these areas, a structural alignment can occur. The oils are dispensed like little drops of rain from a height of about six inches and massaged alongside the vertebrae. Although the entire process takes about 40 minutes to complete, the oils will continue to work in the body for 5 to 7 days following treatment, with continued realignment taking place during this time.
The Raindrop Therapy is not a cure-all or a magic bullet. A healthy body is the result of a well-rounded program of exercise and proper diet. Health is everything we do, say, hear, think, see, breath and eat. The Raindrop Therapy is only one tool to help restore a balance of good health.
