What We Do: Services


Pilates can best be described as a form of mind-body exercise.  It can be performed using different pieces of equipment or a floor mat.  It is excellent at teaching body awareness, efficiency of movement and good posture.  The focus in Pilates is on the quality of movement, as opposed to the quantity.  It helps to improve flexibility, build strength and develop muscular control and endurance.  Pilates is appropriate for just about anyone, despite one's age or condition. 

craniosacral Therapy

CransioSacral therapy (CST) has been shown to be effective in the treatment of:

  • Migraines

  • Chronic neck and back pain

  • Central nervous system disorders

  • Scoliosis

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Stress and tension related disorders

  • Fibromyalgia

  • TMJ

  • Post-surgical dysfunction

  • Immune disorders


CranioSacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on technique used for evaluating and treating restrictions in the connective tissues that surround the brain and spinal chord.  This treatment can help to improve the function of the central nervous system, thereby reducing the effects of stress on the body and improving resistance to disease.

The CranioSacral system extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth, down to the sacrum/tailbone area.  It is made of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal chord.  An imbalance in this system can cause sensory, motor and neurological disabilities since the system effects the brain and spinal chord.

visceral manipulation

Visceral manipulation (VM) is a technique used to treat functional and structural imbalances throught the body.  This method can address dysfunction in the musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic systems.  It focuses on evaluating and treating the internal organs, their environment, and their potential influence on many structural and physiological dysfunctions.


Evaluation and treatment assesses the structural relationship between the viscera and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system.  Surgical scars, adhesions, illness, posture or injury can result in strains in the connective tissue of the viscera.  These strains deep within the body can create abnormal tension patterns for which the body has to compensate.


An example might be an adhesion around the lungs.  This could create abnormal pulls on the surrounding structures, and it could alter rib motion.  This then could create abnormal forces on the spine.  With time, these abnormal forces can be magnified by the thousands of movements we make everyday.

VM uses specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility and function of the organs and their connective tissues.  Because the visceral tissues are highly reactive, gentle force reaps the greatest results.

physical therapy

Physical therapy aims to help patients maintain, recover or improve physical ability that may be impaired due to a condition or injury.  A detailed history is taken and comprehensive assessment performed. The "whole" person is assessed, because injuries and conditions may not just effect the area where there is pain or discomfort.
