Complementary Therapies

The following modalities and therapies complement the respective therapists' offerings. They are occasionally applied on their own and most often blended into sessions to enrich a client's healing experience.


Quantum Touch ®

Quantum Touch (QT) is an energy healing modality based on resonance and entrainment. The QT practitioner holds a high vibrational field of life-force energy, offering an area of discomfort or disease the opportunity to entrain to that high vibration, facilitating healing.

Acupressure

Firm and gentle finger pressure is brought to specific points along the body's energy pathways (meridians, as used in acupuncture), stimulating the body's self-healing ability. Acupressure relieves muscular tension and augments the unimpeded flow of the body's life force, essential to health, balance, harmony and wellbeing.

Vibrational Healing with Tuning Forks

The body's energy system is one of vibration. Each organ, even each cell, within the body has its own vibration at which it functions optimally. The effects of stress, injury, disease, and less-than-positive attitudes impact the body at a cellular level. Tones produced by tuning forks can bring "out of tune" body vibrations into balance and harmony. The effects of vibrational healing are the release of deeply seated energy blockages, energy shifts within cells, tissues, and organs, alleviation of pain, deep relaxation, and mental clarity, to name just a few.

Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT)

The lymphatic system of the body is responsible for draining stagnant fluids, detoxifying, regenerating tissues and maintaining a healthy immune system. Through illness, injury, tension, surgery, etc, the lymphatic system (vessels, lymph fluid and nodes) can become sluggish or even clogged, causing fatigue, swollen glands, swelling, lymphedema or a compromised immune system. LDT (as taught and practiced by Dr. Bruno Chikly, Upledger Institute) uses gentle manual maneuvers to promote the recirculation of body fluids. Some of the benefits of LDT are reduction in swelling/lymphedema; relief of acne, eczema, allergies and sinusitis; regeneration of burn or scar tissues; reduction in symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia; detoxification; stimulation of the immune system; and deep relaxation to aid insomnia, depression and stress.

Distance Healing

Healing sessions can be conducted at a distance, i.e., not in the physical presence of the client. Distance (or remote) healing is based on the belief and scientific understanding that all matter and space are made up of energy of varying vibrations; it is also understood that thoughts have vibrations and can effect matter. Through gentle focus and healing intention the healing practitioner can "tap into" a client's energy field, sensing where in the field blockages or deficiencies are, helping to clear issues and heavy energy.

Distance healing affects all dimensions: easing physical symptoms, raising energy vibrations, balancing emotional disturbances, restoring mental clarity and facilitating spiritual reconnection. Distance sessions are desirable for a variety of situations: geographical distance, frequency of sessions needed/desired, emergency situations (accidents, traumas, anxiety attacks), hospitalizations, surgeries, as well as an added positive dimension to the healing phenomenon. Distance sessions can be scheduled at any time on a one-time basis, to complement surgeries, while going through a particular health or emotional crisis, as well as on a regular "maintenance" schedule.

Essential Oils/Aromatherapy

The therapeutic effects of essential oils (concentrated aroma compounds from plants) on one's body chemistry, one's mood, and on certain symptoms of illness are well documented. Mary Anderson, PhD, ThD, LCSW and Georgia LaCroix, CMT, CEIM both use essential oils in their practices whether to help ground, calm, clear and/or balance the energy field, expand awareness, raise vibration, detoxify, or relieve physical symptoms.


Please note: All alternative or complementary modalities and other holistic healing arts are excellent compliments to traditional health treatment methods. It is encouraged that every client follow his or her own choice of health care, using the above methods for preventative measures, "tune-ups," and stress reduction as well as to address specific conditions.
