Bio-identical hormones are a natural form of hormone replacement therapy that helps men and women to rebalance hormonal deficiencies and excesses. Most hormones fall out of balance with aging, but they can also become imbalanced with stress, poor dietary habits, and a lack of exercise. Bio-identical hormones are unique in that they are identical in molecular structure to the hormones produced in the human body, and this allows them to be metabolized easily with a smaller risk of side effects.
Some of the techniques used include the Raindrop Therapy Technique, Facilitated Stretching Technique, and Yoga Therapy. As well, two basics of massage, Swedish massage and myofascial release are the foundational cornerstones of the bodywork. This integrative style seems to serve well for the elderly in need of a gentle touch; individuals with TMJ dysfunction, Upper Cervical Neck injuries and dysfunction, Back Pain, Scoliosis, Fibromyalgia, and Breast Cancer Survivors. The intention is to empower others to reach their personal best spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Sometimes this means simply being present. Sometimes it means offering healing prayer and encouragement, and most of the time it means sharing the gift of healing touch. Ultimately, the goal is to help eliminate some of the discomfort and suffering we experience in this human condition.
Five Element Acupuncture, also called Traditional Acupuncture, is a formalized system of medicine based on natural laws describing the movement of life energy in nature and the body. Acupuncture originated in China over three thousand years ago. It is the oldest continuously practiced medical system in the world and is used by one-third of the worlds population as a primary health-care system. Life energy, called Qi, flows through the body in pathways called meridians. These pathways flow in much the same way streams, rivers, and oceans flow on earth. When the Qi in the body is full and moving properly, health is promoted. When Qi is not flowing smoothly, illness can begin. Everyday stresses like deadlines and disappointments can disrupt the harmonious movement of Qi. These stresses compounded over time can lead to physical and emotional symptoms. Acupuncture treats the underlying imbalances rather than only the symptoms. In addition, treatment now can prevent symptoms later. Acupuncture has become widely accepted in the United States and has been endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Acupuncture is effective in treating a surprising range of issues including headaches, allergies, asthma, depression, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, back pain, joint pain, infertility, menstrual disorders, sleeping problems, addictions and stress. Acupuncture is helpful for many severe chronic illnesses and complaints that have no easily determined cause.

When she developed Rolfing more than 50 years ago, Dr. Ida P. Rolf, Ph.D., first called her work structural integration. The genius of the work rests on Dr. Rolf’s insight that the body is more at ease and functions most effectively when its structure is balanced in gravity. She observed that, over time, the field of gravity actually accentuates the body’s imbalances and diminishes its flexibility. Based on these core observations, she developed her original method of hands-on manipulation, which later became known as Rolfing, to reduce gravity’s adverse effects on the body. Essentially, the Rolfing process enables the body to regain the natural integrity of its form, thus enhancing postural efficiency and your freedom of movement. Dr. Rolf recognized that the body is inherently a system of seamless networks of tissues rather than a collection of separate parts. These connective tissues, called fascia, actually surround, support and penetrate all of the muscles, bones, nerves and organs. Rolfing works on this web-like complex of connective tissues (fascia) to release, realign, and balance the whole body, thus resolving discomfort, reducing compensations, and alleviating pain.

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses electroencephalography (EEG) to provide a signal that can be used by a person to receive feedback about brain activity. By definition, biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately ‘feed back’ information to the user. The presentation of this information, often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument. Neurofeedback is an advanced biofeedback technology whose system speaks the language of the brain, to the brain. The brain uses visual and auditory information offered by NeurOptimal to re-organize itself and release old patterns of “stuck-ness”. The result is effortless transformation. NeurOptimal is the most advanced neurofeedback technology available today.
