Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy
Through Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy patients learn the methods of embodiment, and why being embodied is important for health and longevity of life.
This gentle technique is an evolved form of craniosacral therapy taught by Dr. Michael Shae Ph.D. and focuses on decompressing the nervous system. The bodies nervous system is extremely intelligent, but like all systems in the body, can become overrun and compromised. There are many manifestations of a taxed nervous system, and by accessing the cardiovascular system we begin to reset and create different neural pathways for the nervous system to operate on. This therapy allows patients to respond to situations versus react.

Yoga is so much more than just getting flexible. Yoga helps to strengthen and take unwanted stress off the body by stacking and aligning the bones of the skeleton so the body can work as a whole unit seamlessly. There are many cues in yoga many instructors know how to give, but often teaching 60-75 minute classes these intriquet cues get left behind for more generalized instructions. There is nothing wrong with this since keeping the class safe as a whole is far more important than helping a couple advanced yogis find external rotation in the thigh by rotating the upper femur bone in its socket. If this advanced yogi is you though, and you are looking for that next level, schedule a private today! The wonderful benefits of scheduling a private class include: learning how to access deeper parts of your body, gaining knowlege and getting to keep, and apply, it to your own personal practice, being introduced to advanced techniques without having to go through teacher training yourself!
Chinese medicine is much more than just acupuncture. Along with external remedies, including acupuncture, moxibustion, and guasha, practitioners have to learn individual chinese herbs and ancient chinese herbal formulas. The most wonderful thing about chinese herbs, is each herb is used in it whole form, so the side-effects and dangers, or counteractions, are very minimal. The other great thing is every formula can be modified to each patients specific needs! Schedule today for your herbal consult and get a custom fit formula to better health and wellness!
