Frederick Stretch Therapy (FST)

Enjoy a 55, 90, or 120 minute full body stretch tailored specifically for you. Unlike traditional stretching, FST works with the body’s fascial net system. Structurally, the fascia system suspends, supports, and enables all anatomical movement from skin to cells and everything in between. It forms the largest system in the body and integrates with all other systems.

Quantum Catalyst Healing

Experience healing through the Quantum Field. If you've dealt with health or emotional issues that aren't healing within their expected time frame perhaps there is a more deeply rooted cause. You are an active participant in identifying blockages in your body and life. Past traumas, chronic stress (even low-grade), and shallow breathing can create physical symptoms in the body. This method is great for tackling chronic pain and reducing anxiety and depression.  Clients report elimination or greatly reduced pain, mental clarity, improved sleep, inner calmness & more. Sessions are 45-60 minutes and can be done in person or remotely. Homework will often be given to help maintain the progress achieved during the session.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy uses gentle touch to evaluate & enhance the functioning of the Central Nervous System, which affects the entire body. The craniosacral system includes the brain, spinal cord, cerebrospinal fluid, cranial bones, and sacrum. Stress, trauma, and even certain postures can create changes in the system which can create imbalances in the body. CST works in partnership with the client's body and its innate healing wisdom by encouraging the body to find its path to self-correction. Recalibrate your central nervous system with this gentle hands on technique. Sessions are 55 minutes and clients are fully clothed. CST can be an effective complementary therapy for a wide variety of medical problems.
