Balancing Body Systems Naturally
What Is Cra•ni•o•sa•cral Ther•a•py?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) a light touch, whole body osteopathic technique that nourishes the Central Nervous System improving overall health and well-being.
Known as a complementary method of hands-on bodywork; working with the natural and unique rhythms of the different body systems to pinpoint and address problem sources.
Helps to alleviate the aches, pains and strains of life. Improves coping mechanisms to allow for better management of stress.
Improves the body to self care and produce profound positive change… Boosting immune response and sustaining overall good health. Acting as an adaptogen increasing energy where needed while enhancing sleep patterns for better nights sleep.
Effectively balances the nervous system… bringing the body into homeostasis. Using a light touch to enhance the body’s natural healing processes. CranioSacral Therapy helps the body’s natural healing mechanisms dissipate the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system.
Relieving pain & discomfort, and restoring ones ability to recover from injury at a more accelerated pace. In many cases relieving chronic pain patterns and dysfunction with one session.
How Does CranioSacral Therapy Work?
By complementing the body’s natural healing processes
CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure in these areas and more:
- Stress & Fatigue
- Chronic Neck and Back Pain
- Migraines & Headaches
- Neurovascular Disorders
- Central Nervous System Disorders
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJD)
- Scoliosis, Kyphosis, Lordosis
- Frozen Shoulder
- Orthopedic Problems
- Autism & Learning Disabilities
What to Expect… How a session is performed.
A CranioSacral Therapy session usually takes place in a quiet, private setting wearing loose, comfortable clothing. The session is performed with the client reclining, on a massage table or sitting if needed. Hand positions work through “stations” at various times throughout the session at the client’s head, middle torso or feet. Working with the cranial bones, spinal fluid and sacrum.
What you may experience during a session.
Experiences during a CST session are as personal as the clients and practitioners themselves. They also may differ from session to session. At times, a client may deeply relax or even fall asleep; at other times, he or she may talk a great deal, recalling hidden memories or expressing emotions. Some will remain still during the entire session, hardly noticing the practitioner’s evaluation and treatment, while others will experience sensations within the body as the evaluation process is carried out.
At various times throughout the session, the practitioner will support a client’s limbs and spine while facilitating release of accumulated tension. This process is called energy cyst release or tissue release. During this release, the client might recall circumstances surrounding a past shock, trauma or injury. Releasing and re-experiencing past hurts assists the body in reversing dysfunction and restoring the previous level of mobility. This entire process has been named SomatoEmotional Release®.
What you may experience following a session.
This relaxed state may cause some to sleep for many hours after a session. Others may experience an increase in energy. Reduction of pain or an increase in function may occur immediately after the session, or it may develop gradually over the next few days.
Since CST helps the body resume its natural healing processes, it isn’t unusual for improvement to continue weeks after the session. For some there may be a reorganization phase as the body adapts to the release of previously held patterns.
The few contra-indications to CranioSacral Therapy are: aneurysm, intracranial hemorrhage, and other conditions where altering intracranial fluid pressure is not recommended. Any one with these conditions must inquire with their Medical Doctor prior to receiving treatment.
CST was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics. CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
For nearly 30 years, it has been shown to be effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and loss of function. CST is useful both as a primary therapeutic method and in combination with other traditional or complementary techniques.

Kundalini Yoga is a dynamic form of yoga that combines breath, movement, meditation, rhythmic sound and deep relaxation. It is practical for the average person, because it works to release tension and energize in a short period of time, regardless of degree …of flexibility or experience. These classes are taught in the tradition of Yogi Bhajan who first brought Kundalini Yoga to the west in 1969. This yoga is taught in specific sequences of exercises (Kriyas) that creating optimal health by strengthening the immune system, balancing the glands and creating a heightened level of awareness.
Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness
Is a powerful and dynamic practice that incorporates all aspects of yoga. In addition to developing physical vitality, this ancient system of yoga works with the energy systems of the body for emotional balancing, strengthening of the nervous system, stress relief and personal transformation. It is excellent for students of all levels. The best way to learn about Kundalini Yoga is to experience it!
What to expect in a Kundalini Yoga Class?
Kundalini classes begin with a time for centering. We call this “tuning in”. The teacher leads the class in the mantra: “Ong Namo, Guru Dev Namo”, which means “I call upon my own inner guidance, the teacher within me”. Students may follow along or listen as they like.
The class is then led in 10 – 20 minutes of warm-up exercises, which prepare the body for the yoga set (kriya) that follows. Each yoga set involves physical postures (asana), breath work (pranayama), and meditative focus. Yoga is followed by a long deep relaxation and a short meditation that allows time for regeneration and stress release.
What to bring, what to wear ?
For Kundalini classes, you only need to bring yourself. Many people feel comfortable bringing their own yoga mat, or a towel to lie on, and a light blanket or shawl to cover up with during relaxation if they tend to get cold. Please bring your own cushions to use in the class. Wear comfortable clothing the you can move and breathe in easily. Yoga is best done on an empty stomach. If you find it necessary to eat before class, choose a light, easily digestible snack.
Keep up! – Practice Makes Perfect
Ultimately, yoga practice is best done daily. Even a few minutes every day can make a big difference. But any practice, however often, will be beneficial. Two to three times a week will provide noticeable results. Some students find that having a “yoga buddy” helps them maintain their commitment to practice. Invite a friend to attend classes with your or meet a friend in class that like to keep a similar schedule. Talk to your teachers about yoga sets for home practice.
In many classes, the mantra Sat Nam is used. Literally, “Sat” means Truth and “nam” means Name or Identity. Translated as Your True Identity or Highest Truth Within Yourself.
Each class ends with the song: “May the long time sun shine upon you, All love surround you, And the pure light within you, Guide your way on”.

Vita Flex means vitality through the reflexes. It is a complete scientific workable system of controls that releases the unlimited healing power within the human body. Combining the electrical frequency of the oils and that of the person receiving the application creates rapid and phenomenal results.
The Vita Flex Technique is a superior form of Reflexology. Reflexology, as used today, has tendency to ground out the electrical charge from constant compression and rotation, which also causes cell separation and loss of oxygen to subdermal tissues, thus causing further injury. With the Vita Flex technique people experience less discomfort. Using the thumb and all four fingers, the application is much more efficient. There are more than 1,500 Vita Flex points throughout the body in comparison to only 365 acupuncture points used in Reflexology. With Vita Flex the weakened or injured areas are corrected on the electrical reflex points thus preventing further injury and less stress allowing for quicker and more efficient healing.
This ancient form of Vita Flex Therapy was in recent times Modernized to incorporate the use of Essential Oils and Energy Medicine to more rapidly correct the Energy Balance of the Body and speedily return it back to Good Health. These modern techniques devised are useful in the Management of Pain – both Upper Back (Spondylitis) and Lower Back (Sciatica) through totally Natural means. The treatment is very gentle and does not result in the aggravation of Pain at any stage. It is noticed that with each Session of the treatment the pain levels go down steadily.
One of the Essential Oils used during this treatment is called Valor:
It was formulated to empower the Physical and Spiritual Bodies. It helps us overcome Fear and Opposition so we can stand tall during adversity. It may help build Courage, Confidence and Self-esteem. It brings a feeling of Calmness, Peace and Relaxation. It may be used for Hyperactivity and Attention Deficit Disorder in children. It has been found beneficial in helping to Align the Physical Structure of the Body; relieve Pain along the Spine. It also Balances and Aligns Electrical Energies within the Body. Application: Apply 6 drops on each foot or massage along the spine. Valor Oil has been touted as a Chiropractor in a bottle. It is known to change anaerobic muted cells back to their aerobic natural state. It is typically applied to the Brain Stem and the Soles of the Feet where the Vita Flex Points are located.
The other Essential Oil used during this treatment is called NerveLess:
This oil has Anti-Viral, Anti-Bacterial properties besides having the ability to reduce Nerve Inflammation and helps regenerate Nerves. This is applied to the area of concern – the Upper Back Region in case of Spondylitis and the Lower Back Region in case of Sciatica.
For a Session Call 407.421.2165
Vita Flex Therapy is based on a complete system of internal body controls. When properly applied through specific application of hand rotation movements and control points, a Vibrational Healing Energy is released through the Neuroelectrical pathways. The healing energy is released through the electrical impulses by the contact between the fingertips and the reflex points. This stimulates an electrical charge that follows the neuro pathways of the nervous system to where there is a break in the electrical circuit. The break in the electrical circuit will be directly related to an energy block caused by toxins, damaged tissues, or loss of oxygen. This reflex system of controls encompasses the entire body and mind releasing all kinds of tension, congestion and imbalances. This technique was believed to have originated in Tibet many thousands of years ago long before acupuncture was ever discovered.

Sound Massage Therapy: Sound massage with Tibetan singing bowls is a specialized sound-therapy, where singing bowls are placed directly upon the clothed body and are rhythmically tapped with a felt mallet. The calming sounds and soft vibrations generated by the bowls create the “relaxation response” – a light trance, which is the basis for all healing.
Healthy people also derive great benefits from sound massage; they become calmer and report higher levels of energy, as well as better sleep. Sound massage can effectively dissolve physical, mental, and emotional blockages and overcome daily stress, fear, and depression. With regular treatments most people experience an increase in zest for life and an increase in creativity.
Sound massage is based on over 5000 years of Indian medicine. According to ancient Eastern teachings the universe and mankind were created from sound, therefore man is sound. When a sick man is “nourished” by the right kind of sounds, the cells in his body start to vibrate and re-organize themselves according to their divine blueprint.
Tibetan bowl therapy works well in cases of autism, ADD and other learning difficulties can be used for Chakra Balancing, Injuries & Hospice.
Blocks of three sessions are recommended Call for Details 407.421.2165
