Osteopathic modalities – within RMT scope of practice
Myofascial Release – To “unwrinkle the cling wrap” throughout various layers of connective tissue within you.
Lymphatic Drainage – Helps to speed the rate at which lymphatic fluids move and drain with manual techniques.
Craniosacral Therapy – I have been taught a modified approach to this Osteopathic modality by Robert F. Harris RMT. To balance and enhance efficiency of the messages moving through our spinal cord up to our brain and back. By monitoring and harmonizing the fluids from our brain down to our spinal cord, as well as manipulating our connective tissue to give these fluids the best pathway available for information to travel.
Visceral Manipulations – Observing and enhancing the functions by balancing the various rhythms and movement patterns for each of our organs and surrounding connective tissue. Level 1 allows working with the following: Liver, Stomach, Gall-bladder, Small Intestines, Large Intestines, Kidneys, Bladder, Ovaries, Lungs, Spleen, Pancreas, Heart and the Sphincters of our Digestive System.
Neural Manipulations - Observing the changes in nerve tension and restrictions, tissue tension is then released promoting elasticity and movement of the nerve bundles. Decreasing pain, increasing function and eliminating pain and tension throughout the body.
Hands on Energy healing – within RMT scope of practice
Western Reiki (Level 1 techniques Only) – “Reiki” (ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy,” the energy foun din all things. The Usui System of Reiki Healing, or Usui Shiki Ryoho, applies this energy through gentle tough for the purpose of healing.
This Reiki system was brought over from Japan to North America by Hawayo Takata.
Alternative Healing Modalities
“For those people who are new to Reiki, I will explain a little more. Reiki is an energy healing practice which originated in Japan. Practitioners use the life-force energy or “ki” all around us and are able to pass it on to re-awaken the natural healing process in others by focusing the energy on the areas that it is most needed.”
The Jikiden Reiki system has been passed down unaltered and is now being taught by Tadao Yamaguchi from Japan.
