Humans are multidimensional beings, and each of the therapeutic methods integrate on a different level.
The therapies I apply blend well to create a Holistic approach to Healing. ​

"Holism is the idea that systems and their properties should be viewed as wholes, not just as a collection

of parts." (in Wikipedia)

Craniosacral Therapy
 
Craniosacral Therapy is a light touch therapy which enhances bodies self-healing mechanism.​​

During the session, the practitioner touches the skull and the other areas of the body, where the tension is felt.

It is believed that Craniosacral Therapy works on three major bodies: physical (e.g., bones, muscles and fascia), fluid (lymph, cerebrospinal fluid), and energetic (also called biodynamic).

The name "craniosacral" connects the name of the two anatomical areas of the body-cranium (a bony structure that forms the head) and a sacral bone (a triangular bone at the end of the spine). However, that does not mean that practitioner only works around these areas. Because everything in the body is connected, the practitioner may work on the ankles, arms, hands, chest and other places in or around the body.

Craniosacral therapy is based on working around cranial rhythm (cerebrospinal fluid pulsation) which is 6-12 times a minute in normal states. When there is trauma in the body ( physical or/and emotional), the cranial rhythm is out of balance. It can be felt both in the tissues, body fluids or bones. For example, if the sacral bone is not aligned correctly, it may pull on the spinal canal and cause back pain.


Another example, if the skull bones are compressed due to trauma, it may restrict normal brain fluid flow (cerebrospinal fluid). That can cause a lot of uncomfortable health issues like - ear infections, headaches, jaw pain, dental issues, etc...

During Craniosacral Therapy session cranial rhythm is normalized and the body (in time) comes back into the alignment by itself.

Craniosacral Therapy is extremely safe and effective. It helps people with many different health issues such as anxiety, depression, chronic back pain, headaches, muscular and joint pain, emotional pain and ADHD. It is very safe and effective for children. Because of their pure nature and not fully ossified skull bones, craniosacral therapy works much faster and in a shorter time.

Most people enjoy a craniosacral session. They find it very relaxing, soothing, pain relieving and balancing.

                 Reiki

Reiki is a very subtle light touch therapy when the practitioner mainly works around the client's energy field. Reiki helps to bring health and balance into the body.​​

During the session, the practitioner manually "scans" the body and treats the areas which need more attention. Most of the time the practitioner very lightly touches the body or keeps a very slight physical distance. Clients who suffer from emotional and physical traumas, anxiety, depression and chronic pain can benefit the most from Reiki session.

Reiki is a Japanese word. Rei means "Universal Life" and Ki means "Energy." The founder of Reiki system is Dr. Mikao Usui who was looking a way to heal himself and others using his hands without depletion of his energy levels.

It is important to understand that Reiki healing has no religious attachments. The practitioner does not transfer his/her energy neither he/she absorbs the client's energy.
The practitioner works as a channel for the Universal Energy that we are all connected to. Many illnesses and diseases appear in a human energy field before they manifest in the body. Reiki is very effective not only treating pain, anxiety, chronic illness but also preventing diseases, rejuvenating the body and bringing it back to balance.​

Myofascial Release
Myofascial Release is a gentle hands-on body treatment that helps to release fascial tissue. Fascia is thin connective tissue that covers muscles, bones, and internal organs. It looks like a thin transparent tape and works like a plastic wrapper. In other words, it keeps everything in place, but also allows some degree of mobility. There is fluid between the fascia and the organ/bone/muscle that enables some movement. When fascia becomes immobile, inflammation and pain occur.

During the session, the practitioner finds tightness and restrictions in movement in some areas of the body. Those areas usually need a myofascial release. With gentle movements and specific unwinding techniques, the practitioner releases the fascial tissue, pain decreases and the client experiences increased range of motion.  

Most clients find myofascial release freeing and bringing more balance and mobility into their bodies. The practitioner touches the body through the clothes and sometimes may touch the skin directly. It takes a few days to a week for the client to experience the full effect of myofascial release session.
