Massage

Clinical/Neuromuscular Massage

The goal is to bring the muscles back to their full range of motion.This style of massage goes beyond relaxation. Working with the various trigger points in the body, deep tissue work can help release sore muscles, help muscles overcome injuries and help to bring the muscles back to its full ability of movement. It is beautiful work and necessary work when the body is in need.

TMJ

TMJ Disfunction can manifest itself in so many ways, particularly extreme tightness in the neck and upper shoulders. What separates Emily from many other therapists is that to treat the jaws, neck and shoulders Emily includes side posture for full treatment of the areas as well as intra-oral work. Not very many therapists are trained to go inside the mouth-but this is so important for this type of work. For the best relief possible if you are experiencing jaw, neck and shoulder issues

What is Cranio Sacral Therapy? Quoted directly from the Upledger Institute:

CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life and wellness. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.

By gently working with the soft tissues of the body, it releases restrictions around your brain and spinal cord, allowing your body to self-correct and free itself of pain and dysfunction. Because it strengthens the body on multiple levels, CranioSacral Therapy is known for its ability to relieve a wide range of medical conditions.”
