Massage, Bodywork, and Energy Work

CranioSacral Therapy

A deeply relaxing and unwinding response is felt as the body feels it is being listened to.

This technique works with the rhythm of the craniosacral system, which consists of the skull and spine, membranes within the skull and the cerebralspinal fluid that surrounds and protects the system. CranioSacral Therapy enhances body functioning and helps to alleviate pain and dysfunction in the body.

Using a light touch, no more than the weight of a nickel to test for restrictions within the system, the rhythm of the cerebralspinal fluid is monitored as it flows through the system. This work assists the hydraulic forces to improve the body's internal environment and strengthens its ability to heal itself.

Working with the bones of the skull, this technique can be successful in reducing headaches and stress in the neck and TMJ. Low back pain can be relieved by working with the system at the sacrum. This is very beneficial after accidents, injuries, and surgeries. The effects rely largely upon the body's natural self-corrective abilities.

You are a miracle worker. You did so good for me... I just can’t believe it!

Let your cares go as your feet get special attention, bringing well-being to the entire body.

Reflexology has been known to bring relief to aching, painful feet as well as all the glands, organs, and parts of the body while working on reflexes in the feet. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health challenges by reducing stress in the corresponding area. While it can improve blood supply and promote the unblocking of nerve impulses, the body cannot be unbalanced by working an area too much.

Using the Ingram Method where Reflexology got started in the 30's, Marjorie will bring delight to your feet as you relax, leaving you with a sense of light and sparkles flowing through your body. Great for hormonal, respiratory, gastrointestinal, sleeping, neck, low back, and sciatic problems.

I have lumbar disc problems, and Marjorie's reflexology has helped me have less pain and have much more movement in my day. Thank you!
