Are you carrying stress and pain or in your body? Do you have inflammation and illness?
My name is Gigi Huscroft. I am a Natural Healthcare Practitioner. I have worked with Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists, and Holistic Healthcare Professionals for over 20 years.
Here are some brief definitions of the different modalities I offer:
Massage Therapy - Massage is generally considered part of complementary medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. The benefits of massage are well documented. Studies have shown it to help with the reduction of Stress and Anxiety, Pain, Muscle Tension, Depression, Digestive Disorders, Headaches, Insomnia related stress, Myofascial Pain syndrome, Soft Tissue Strains or Injuries, Sports related Injuries, and more...
Swedish Massage -This is a Medium pressure massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and/ or energize you.
Deep Tissue Massage - This massage technique uses slower, more forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries. Areas of tight muscle fibres that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse can be relaxed by using trigger points.
Cranio Sacral Therapy - CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction, and improve whole body health and performance. Few body structures have more influence over your health and well being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the CranioSacral system -(the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.) By balancing the cranial bones and unraveling pain and dysfunction at the source, you'll naturally eliminate stress, balance hormones, emotions, and enhance your health and well being.
What can CranioSacral Therapy help with? Concussions, Post Concussion Syndrome, Migraines and Headaches, Chronic Neck and Back Pain, Stress and Tension Related Disorders, Motor Co-Ordination Impairments, Infant and Childhood Disorders, Pregnancy and Post delivery, Spinal Cord Injuries, Diabetic Lesions on the Brain affecting memory, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, TMJ Disorder, PTSD, Learning Disabilities, ADD/ADHD, Eye and Hearing Disorders, Orthopedic Problems, Low back Pain, Pelvic Floor Issues, Pregnancy, Post Delivery, and Many others problems. The client is fully clothed and on a massage table. $75/session
Reflexology - Foot or Hand Reflexology is both a science and an art. It is based on the principle that there are specific areas on the feet that correspond to specific areas in the body. A study rhythmic pressure is applied to the areas on the feet, also known as reflexes, to create an effect with the corresponding body area. When the reflex is stimulated, the nerve endings on the foot will send messages to the brain and spinal cord. This then activates the body's healing abilities and encourages the body's healing resources to focus on the corresponding organ, gland, or system. The end result is deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and better overall health.
Brain Formatting - By targetting stress in specific neurological areas of the brain and gently removing it, The Practitioner is able to helps clients who may have imbalances in academic, memory, equilibrium, sleep rhythms, anxiety, vision, touch, hearing, taste, smell, compulsive behavior, digestion, cravings, and artistic difficulties. $75/session
Touch For Health - Touch for Health is about the study of movement in the body. It is a health care systems designed to help all of the body's systems work together to heal from all forms of stress. Through professional muscle monitoring, high priority stress can be identified. The appropriate correction is then applied to soothe or strengthen. Some of the systems worked with are the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, organs, glands, lymphatic system, vascular system, nervous, system, posture and body alignment, electrical, nutritional, along with attitude & emotions....$75/session
Acupressure- Using the same Acupoints as Acupuncture but with no needles! Accupressure balances the body electrics by specifically accessing states of stress in the muscle spindle cells, tendons, ligaments, vascular system, lymphatic system, skin, stuck or circular grief states, blocked emotions, and much more...In addition, this system locates and balances deep compensated switching that occurs in the amygdala and the corpus collosum, allowing brain re-integration to take place gently and effectively. The related Body Alignment proprioception allows one to balance the primary integration centers for body alignment - utilizing the self healing properties of the clients own body to bring the spine, jaw, cranials, hip, and shoulder girdles, and feet into proper alignment. $75/session
EFT or Tapping- This modality is the emotional version of acupuncture, except no needles are used! Instead, we stimulate certain meridians and acupoints points on the body by tapping or pressure. This has been shown repeatedly to reduce the conventional therapy process from months or years, down to hours, or minutes , by just a few sessions. EFT has been shown to be able to help people with a vast array of emotional, physical, and performance problems. $75/session
Acupoint Oil Massage-I like this type of massage because it works with the Acupoints that I am so fond of :) A soothing healing massage using Acupoints, and an awareness of the Meridians are combined with Aromatherapy to provide a relaxing, balancing, energizing, detoxifying oil massage. Acupressure points are stimulated using gentle pressure to release tension, promote circulation of blood, and access the bodies natural self-curative abilities. This type of relaxation massage helps you unwind from the inside out.
