Helping you find long term solutions for your chronic pain!
Energy Therapies (Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy and Tapping)

Energetic restoration can include one or a combination of reiki, craniosacral therapy, and meridian tapping.  Reiki works with your "chi" energy to balance your energy.  Craniosacral therapy works directly with your central nervous system for pain and stress relief. Much of our physical pain starts at the stress levels.  Reiki can reach us on the stress levels, which is much deeper than the physical level.


Reiki is a light and gentle form of body work that works with you on an energetic level. When you hear people talk about Reiki or energy, they are talking about the chi that flows through us. Chi is energy. If you have heard of Qigong or Tai Chi, both of them also work with our chi to keep it flowing freely. It is quite common to have our chi stuck for various reasons whether it be because of being emotionally upset or because of trauma or illness. Any areas of our mind, body and spirit can become stagnant. Reiki is a Japanese laying of hands that was brought over to the United States. When you get a Reiki session, it is usually done fully clothed.

-Can help promote stress reduction and relaxation

-Helps energy flow better

-Stuck energy can make us feel more drained, stressed and more susceptible to illness.

Stress can cause physical pain.  To read more, click the link below:

Craniosacral Therapy:

Craniosacral therapy is a very light gentle touch therapy used with pressure no heavier than the weight of a nickel to work with your central nervous system, your craniosacral rhythm, your cerebral spinal fluid and the membranes that surround your brain and spinal cord. What does this mean for you? The central nervous system or (CNS) for short effects every other system in our bodies. The craniosacral system has such a strong impact on the CNS, that if the craniosacral rhythm is out of sync, it can throw off your CNS. Our bodies remember every stress or trauma that has ever happened in our lives.

Conditions that Craniosacral Therapy can help includes, but not limited to:

-Orthopedic conditions


-Central Nervous System Disorders

-Soft tissue restrictions from accidents, surgeries and repetitive stress

-Traumatic brain injury


-Teeth grinding

-Traumatic Brain Injury



I have also had advanced specialized craniosacral therapy for the brain.  I use intention to unwind tissues of different areas of the brain that regulate body functions that can affect concussions, traumatic brain injury, sleep, body temperature regulation, pain, balance, posture, memory and learning, muscle weakness, coordination, depression, schizophrenia, fight or flight, hormone balance and many other benefits.  This specialized brain work is not a cure and is not a substitute for medical help. 

Meridian Tapping:

A simple technique that involves tapping on acupuncture points with your fingers while picturing negative events.  This works directly with the limbic system of your brain.  The limbic system is where we store stress and memories. It can be effective with reversing the effects that negative stress can sometimes have on the body, such as:





-I have even heard of people using it for addictions. 


Clients have reported a large reduction in pain with tapping.  Tapping can be done by itself or combined with manual therapy.

Examples of Pain Relief with tapping include:

-Calf pain that went from screaming to whispering

-Very painful shoulder pain completely gone after being in pain for over a decade

-Pain that made it hard to move arms and shoulders was completely gone in one session of tapping

Meridian Tapping has been effective in treating chronic pain, once the negative stress and trauma from the event have been reversed.  Next time you think about your pain, think about how long you have had it, then ask yourself what significant life event happened when it started. The root cause of chronic pain is often on a much deeper level than physical symptoms.  In order to get the most out of your pain relief sessions, it is important to address ALL contributing factors. If you have multiple diagnoses, medications, years worth of unexplained chronic pain, etc., expect to start out with tapping before we move on to any manual therapy.  The reason why, is because I want your sessions to be as efficient and cost effective as possible.  I don't like to keep clients dependent on seeing me every single week forever. This is a stress relief technique, not counseling. Ignoring the mind/body connection can prevent neurokinetic therapy  and Voila from working.

Meridian Tapping sessions are done while sitting in a chair.
