Cranial-Sacral Therapy is also a form of energy work. Practitioners monitor the rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid's flow through the system to balance the life force energy within the body. Because the movable skull, sacrum and coccyx are attached to membranes encompassing the cerebrospinal fluid, experienced clinicians can detect any motion. Light, hands-on touch assists hydraulic forces to improve the body's internal atmosphere; thus, strengthening its ability to heal itself. Cranial sacral therapy optimizes the rhythm of the spinal fluid and influences the whole body. It is relaxing, safe and effective; and cranial sacral therapy may heal or alleviate numerous conditions including migraines, chronic fatigue, motor coordination impairments, stress and tension, and orthopedic problems. After cranial sacral therapy is administered, a common state of relaxation occurs and improves mental performance as well. If you would like to feel energized, whole, happy and healthy, try cranial sacral therapy today.
Thai Yoga stimulates and balances the flow of healing energy within the body, opening the areas which are blocked bringing the person deeper into balance and harmony for health, happiness and wellness of being. Thai Yoga was born from the knowledge of Indian monks on Ayurveda, Yoga, and Buddhism; also from Thai and Chinese indigenous healing techniques.A powerful modality evolved, known as Nuad Bo' Rarn, which literally means ancient healing touch.
Thai yoga is based on the belief that energy – known as lom – runs throughout the body. During the session an extensive variety of techniques are used to balance this energy, as well as to mobilize the joints, and renew the physical and spiritual body resulting in deep relaxation and renewal. These techniques include reflexology, acupressure, plucking, compression work, therapeutic stretching, joint mobilization, and assisted yoga poses. To allow for ease of movement during the session, both the practitioner and receiver wear loose, comfortable clothes. All the work is done on a mat on the floor. This system creates a powerful release of stress and tension, an increase in vitality and well-being and it deepens the connection between mind, body and spirit.

Acupuncture developed in China thousands of years ago and, over time, spread to Korea, Japan and beyond. There are many schools or traditions of practice. As practiced at Elements, the practitioner uses hair-thin needles (sterile and used only once) or moxa (an herb considered to have healing properties) at specific points along meridians (like channels or rivers of energy). This energy is also called qi (pronounced "chee"). Imbalances or blockages of qi are considered the source of symptoms or disease. The skilled practitioner determines the best way and place to use the needs or moxa by using various diagnostic techniques (which may include pulse-taking, history, and tongue diagnosis) for a unique and individualized treatment approach. Changes can occur quickly or take time---just as symptoms can show up suddenly or take a long time to develop. Seasonal "tune-ups" can also be helpful in maintaining balance or well-being. Acupuncture is a gentle and effective way to allow the body to heal and take care of itself.
In 1997, an advisory panel for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) evaluated hundreds of acupuncture studies and concluded that the therapy is an effective treatment for postoperative pain after dental surgery and for nausea induced by chemotherapy, pregnancy ("morning sickness"), and anesthesia. The NIH panel also called acupuncture a useful adjunct and acceptable treatment for a variety of conditions, including Fibromyalgia, Asthma, ADD, Allergies, Hay Fever, Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue, Insomnia, Frequent Colds or infections, High Blood Pressure, Constipation, Low Energy Levels, Menopause, MS, Parkinson's Disease, Stress, Tension. Stroke Rehabilitation, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
