Massage Therapy

Lynn specializes in RAPID-NFR (Neuro Fascial Reset) which is a new soft tissue, movement based therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in alleviating tension and restrictions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. RAPID is an evidence based manual therapy technique that can be used to quickly and effectively eliminate pain in their patients.

Some of the conditions that respond well to RAPID-NFR include:

  • Headaches /migraines
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shin splints
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee problems
  • Tennis/ golfers elbow
  • Whiplash
  • TMJ
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Bunions and arthritic joints

Lynn has recently completed additional training that enables her to provide treatment for concussion and  trauma cases through RAPID-NFR TAC (Trauma – Autonomic Nervous System – Concussion). This technique involves palpation of nerve pathways where neural and bodily tension / pain perceptions can present. 

What is Reiki?

​Reiki is an ancient yet simple healing technique. It has been found to produce profound results all through gentle touch, positive mindsets, and energy transfer. Whether you want to receive Reiki for emotional trauma healing, energy level balancing, or to develop yourself spiritually, Reiki has endless advantages.

The Benefits

Reiki takes a non-invasive approach to energy transfer that is extremely effective in promoting overall wellness. Through the energy transfer, the body is able to restore balance across all systems of the mind, body, and spirit. This creates harmony and allows people to continue in a positive lifestyle.

What many people love the most about Reiki is that it allows them to simply “be”. It is a couple of minutes of pure relaxation where the receiver can clear their heads and release the tension and stress of their day. The energy transfer through Reiki may make people feel peaceful, relaxed, and lighter which allows then to be in touch with their inner selves and reflect clearly on their lives.

Regular Reiki treatment promotes the consistent and unlocked flow of energy throughout the body. This allows people to feel less stress, enhances learning and memory, promotes mental clarity, and physical healing/ less physical pain. When energy passageways are blocked, positive energy cannot flow to certain parts of the body, which results in mood swings, fear, anger, pain, and more. Reiki can help keep these passages clear.

Reiki technique is used to remind our bodies how to go back into the “repair” or “self-healing” state of rest and digest. By triggering this state, our bodies begin to cleanse themselves of useless energies. It also allows the body to protect itself from exhaustion, burnout, or immune system failure.

Reiki reminds receivers to be in the present moment. The positive energy transfer allows the mind to focus on current events, not hold onto past mistakes, and not fret on anxieties about the future. This will help with accepting how life is unfolding and will help promote positive reactions to situations, people, and circumstances.

You can always expect to feel extremely relaxed after a Reiki session. This kind of relaxation helps our bodies to sleep better, to heal better, and to think more clearly. It is not uncommon for people to fall asleep entirely during a Reiki Session.

Reiki addresses the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—not just the physical being. This means that the positive energy transfer through Reiki is extremely helpful in elevating the receiver’s mood and general attitude towards life. The healing that starts from within will reflect on their decisions and perspective on the outside.

Reiki balances your internal body levels to return to a near-natural state. This means that your breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, circulation, and other bodily systems will improve. This normal balance will allow your body to heal itself from within.

There are many ways that an individual can benefit from Reiki. It is important to note that Reiki does not target one particular problem within the body but rather targets everything at once. Energy transfer is the most powerful tool in healing in this way as it heals all related elements of a particular condition.

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a natural therapeutic method derived from the principle that there are reflexes in the body that map to other parts, glands, and organs of the body. Through the application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology can:

  • Relieve tension;
  • Improve circulation, and;
  • Support the body’s efforts to function optimally.

How does it work?

Nerve impulses from a receptor are transmitted to the central nervous system which in turn transmits them to a cell, gland, or organ via the autonomic nervous system.

There are more than 72,000 nerve endings in EACH of the feet which have extensive interconnects through the spinal cord and brain to all areas of the body.

Reflexology releases endorphins which are similar to morphine. The pressure acts to confuse the body with too many sensations there for closing the pain gates. This interrupts the pain cycle, eases pain, and helps the body relax.

What is the difference between reflexology and massage?

Reflexology Therapy

  • Is applied to specific areas of the body (ears, face, feet, hands, etc.)
  • Promotes a response in an area removed from the stimulated reflex point
  • Improves the function of organs, systems, and glands through reflexive stimulations
  • Healing is based on stimulating the nervous system through reflexive points

Massage Therapy

  • Is applied to the whole body (muscle and connective tissue)
  • Promotes a local response in the muscle and connective tissue
  • Changes soft tissue through direct stimulation
  • Healing is based on direct muscle and connective tissue contact
