CranioSacral Therapy

What is it?
In a nutshell, CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch manual therapy that engages the self-healing capacity of the body and works to release restrictions in the tissue systems that protect and nourish the central nervous system. Since the central nervous system is connected to every part of the body, the whole person is benefited by this gentle work. CST uses noninvasive touch that supports your body’s innate ability to heal. CST restores balance in the core of the body, your central nervous system. When the nervous system has more balance and ease, your body can devote more of its resources to healing and tissue repair. Developed by Dr. John Upledger, CST is unlike any other therapy and is named for the craniosacral system, the membranes and fluid that protect, cleanse, and nourish your central nervous system. By releasing restrictions in the membranes and connective tissue, better fluid flow is encouraged. Better fluid flow improves nutrition and waste removal, which leads to improved function. Because your craniosacral system is deeply connected to all your fascia (the continuous, web-like stocking of connective tissue that surrounds and supports all your muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and organs), CST provides you with a whole-body treatment, addressing every system and allowing your entire body to unwind and release.
What does it treat?
Although not an exclusive list, CST is particularly beneficial for:

  • Post surgery or accident support
  • Calming the nervous system
  • Stress, Tension-Related Problems and Anxiety
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Head, Neck, Back and Jaw Pain
  • Sciatica and other Nerve Disorders
  • Alzheimer’s Disease and other Dementia
  • Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Fibromyalgia and other Connective Tissue Disorders
  • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
What should I expect?

Clients remain fully clothed and typically lie down on a comfortable massage table. Gentle touch, about the weight of a nickel, is used to support and assist your body in relaxing and accessing your body’s patterns of experience, releasing restrictions and stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system for restoration, revitalizing and equilibrium. You may have sensations of movement, tingling, warmth, or coolness as your body begins to readjust and settle. Most people become very relaxed and may even fall asleep.

The first session is an hour with about 10 minutes of consultation time included in the hour in order to assess your current issues and status and to answer any questions you may have. Subsequent sessions are also an hour. This length of time is usually most efficient for your body to process its new physical adjustments. Each session begins an adjustment process for the body that may take several days to settle in.

CranioSacral Therapy with Chakra Balancing: To facilitate even more health benefit, a CranioSacral session can be combined with Chakra balancing. Essential oils, crystals and Reiki are utilized during a session to balance the chakras (main energy hubs in the body) in addition to CranioSacral techniques.  If you find one or more of the oils used beneficial and you wish to purchase your own, you can order Young Living oils using my sponsor information.

Most clients experience a deep sense of calm and peaceful relaxation after a CranioSacral Therapy (CST) session. There is sometimes mild discomfort for a day or two after a session and this is actually a positive sign that your body is responding and releasing long held restrictions. It is helpful to drink plenty of fluids to aid your body while it readjusts. CST is a very client-centered approach and involves supporting the body in its healing rather than forcing change. If you decide to try CST for a particular problem, you should know within 3 sessions whether CST is going to help and oftentimes initial weekly sessions can be useful for more long-lasting results since your body will have more support to keep new adjustment patterns.

Reiki

What is it?
Reiki is a very specific form of energy healing of Eastern Origin, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of hands.” Reiki (pronounced ray-key) in Japanese, means “universal life energy”. The basic concept underlying Reiki is that the body has an energy field that is central to health and proper functioning. Most of us have felt this energy without even realizing it. Have you ever walked into a room and immediately felt tension of a loved one, sensed that something was wrong without that person ever saying anything? Have you ever attended a celebration such as a wedding or birthday party and just seem to “feel” the happiness of all the guests? What you are noticing is the energy fields of those around you. This energy travels in certain pathways and these pathways can often become blocked or disrupted as we go about our daily lives encountering stressors along the way. During a Reiki session, problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional and spiritual level are detected and alleviated by channeling Universal Life Energy. The intention is to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Although most people are aware of Reiki healing for people, Reiki is also useful for pets, even plants!

Reiki is a wellness tool that facilitates healing and is a great complement to conventional healthcare. Like any health habit such as exercising and healthy eating habits, it is best to get Reiki on a regular basis to maintain one’s sense of well-being. Though it can sometimes take just one session to feel better, it generally takes repeat sessions to make a sustainable difference.

What should I expect?
Human clients remain fully clothed and typically lie down on a comfortable massage table. Gentle touch (or sometimes hands hovering above the body) is used to adjust Reiki energy flow. The Reiki energy empowers the body to heal itself. Clients may feel sensations of relaxation, warmth, coolness, tingling or see gentle patterns of color or light—or not notice anything at all. A session lasts about an hour depending on client need.

For animal clients, either a home visit may be appropriate or you can bring a photo of your companion animal to use for a distance Reiki healing session. Typically, animal sessions are much shorter than sessions with humans, depending on the animal.

Energy Blast Healing Sessions

What is it?

Energy Blast Healing Sessions for people and companion animals last up to 15 minutes and utilize a wand-like tool to focus healing energy to the chakras and main body areas for improved well-being. A typical session takes 15 minutes, though sometimes more or less time is needed. If more than 15 minutes is needed, it is recommended that a follow-up session be scheduled. For chronic and deep-seated issues, it is suggested to get regular sessions so that healing can build, getting to deeper layers. It is like exercise. You would not expect to get in complete physical shape from one workout but could expect to see improvement after regular exercise sessions. Sessions can be either in-person or remote. To receive updates on days/times and locations for in-person Energy Blast sessions, please join my private mailing list.

Remote Energy Blast Healing Sessions: Healing is not limited to distance. Just as is the case with Reiki, Energy Blast Healing sessions work just as well remotely as they do in-person. Distance does not matter. I have treated clients as far away as Texas! With remote sessions, you can stay in the comfort of your own home (or wherever your prefer to be) during a session. You will be asked to relax and focus during the 15 minutes of the Remote Energy Blast Session. When scheduling a remote session, please add “Remote Energy Blast” to the comment box.

Energy Blast Packages Offered: For longer-lasting healing results, it is recommended to get regular treatments. To make this more affordable for you, two packages are available:

  • Weekly Package: 7 sessions (20% savings off individual sessions). It is recommended these be used within a 2-week period for best results. These are offered remotely, though you are welcome to use your pre-paid sessions during the regularly offered in-person sessions at Inspiration Wellness Group. No refunds but you can use any unused balance towards any services offered by Tami Friday LLC.
  • Monthly Package: 4 sessions (10% savings off individual sessions). It is recommended these be used within a 2-month period for best results. These are offered remotely, though you are welcome to use your pre-paid sessions during the regularly offered in-person sessions at Inspiration Wellness Group. No refunds but you can use any unused balance towards any services offered by Tami Friday LLC.
What should I expect?

For in-person sessions, all you need to do is sit in a chair and relax. I will sit across from you and utilize a wand-like tool over the main areas of your body, including the main chakras, focusing healing energy, to help shift any energy imbalances. Sessions will last up to 15 minutes and I typically request that you fill out a short feedback form in which you are welcome to share your experience.

Myofascial Release

What is it?
First it helps to understand what fascia is. According to John F. Barnes, fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web or a knitted sweater. It is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein and all of our internal organs. Fascia plays an important role in the support and function of our bodies, since it surrounds and attaches to all structures. In the normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration. It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction. When one experiences physical trauma, emotional trauma, scarring, or inflammation, the fascia loses its pliability. It becomes tight and restricted, and that tension can travel to other parts of the body, often resulting in symptoms of pain and discomfort and/or movement restrictions. These restrictions can impact our ability to withstand stress and easily pursue daily activities.

Myofascial release is a safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Once fascial restrictions are detected, the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia is applied. Oftentimes traditional physical therapy, occupational therapy and chiropractic emphasizes joint and muscle mobility, and while this can be very beneficial, if it does not address the fascia that connects these tissues, any releases may be short lived. Addressing fascial restrictions is key to longer lasting ease and comfort.

What does it treat?
The following conditions are some of many that can be helped by Myofascial release:

  • Back pain, sciatica and cervical and lumbar injuries
  • Bulging discs
  • Bursitis
  • Carpal Tunnel syndrome
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Chronic pain
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Emotional trauma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches, migraines
  • Menstrual problems
  • Neck pain
  • Scarring
What should I expect?

Myofascial Release (MFR) techniques are typically used along with CranioSacral Therapy treatment techniques during a CranioSacral session, based on what the client needs but there is an option for a session devoted strictly to MFR techniques if that best serves the client. A Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. If you are someone who would benefit from Myofascial Release, you will be asked to wear a modest swimsuit or tank top and shorts and no lotions or oils to allow for direct contact to the fascial system. It can be helpful to dress in layers as temperatures can fluctuate. A table warmer is used and can be adjusted for your comfort. A session lasts about one hour including hands on adjustments, evaluation of body mechanics and posture and education on improving the pliability of the fascial system.
