Price List

Therapeutic Massage

Neuromuscular Therapy - $85
CranioSacral Therapy - $70

CST was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.

CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

Reiki - $70

Reiki is known to be over 2,500 years old.  It is the Japanese word, defined as being the power or force or energy, which acts and lives in all created matter. The word Reiki can be broken into two component parts, the syllable "Rei" describing the universal, transcendental spirit, mysterious power and essence, and "Ki" the vital force energy that flows through all living beings. Thus “Reiki” is the word for Universal life force energy. 

We also say that Reiki is the greatest vibration of life energy available to human being. This vibration has a divine quality and for this reason does not exclude anything. It allows us to make contact with the impulses alive in the world, thus conveying "oneness". It is the "path of healing love." It is given from the heart and is often experienced as the receiving of unconditional love. This love has the power to bring us back to a state of peace and harmony. It is a unique healing art which stimulates your own development and brings equilibrium at all levels of existence.

Reiki helps dissolve tension at the physical, mental and emotional plane. Release in tension permits rapid removal of toxins and blockages enhancing a normal flow of life energy in all areas. Once the organism is thoroughly detoxified it has more scope to receive, store and use more life energy. Reiki triggers an intensive process of purification, stimulates the body to heal, resulting in a process of rejuvenation and relaxation, but each person must experience the affect of Reiki their own unique way.

Reiki was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, born 1865 in Kyoto, Japan.  He notice that many people around him were ill, some physically, some mentally and not able to function as well as they should.During the late 1800's, Dr. Usui began a decade of research in China, India and Japan.  He studied many ancient Sanskrit writings about Reiki and began using and teaching what he had learned.  He found that there was a way of healing from ancient times, but it has long been forgotten.  He spent much time trying to find the ancient method of healing, even learning these foreign languages so that he could read some of the old books in their original form.  He found the valuable information and decided to follow the original practices as stated in the ancient writings.


Upon his return to Japan, Dr. Usui used this powerful knowledge to establish a healing society with three degrees and taught Reiki for the remainder of his life.  On his passing, he gave the responsibility of teaching to Dr. Hayashi, who taught his wife and Hawayo Takata.  During the 1940's, Mrs. Takata brought the teachings of Reiki to westerners and since that time, has spread all over the world.

Chakra Healing/Balancing - $70

Chakras are Entry Gates of the Aura.

Within the physical body resides a body double, a spiritual/energetic body that contains the Chakras.

The word Chakra in Sanskrit translates to wheel or disc.

They are centers of activity that receives, assimilates and expresses life force energy.

They are responsible for the person's physical, mental, and spiritual functions.

They absorb and transmit energies to and from the universe, nature, celestial entities, from people even from things.

According to the traditional writings there are 88,000 chakras in the human body covering basically every area in the body.

Forty of them have significant function and they are in the hands, feet, fingertips, and shoulders.

The most significant ones are the Seven Main Chakras located along the central line of the body, from the base of the spine to the top of the head.

They are located in the ethereal body and they express the embodiment of spiritual energy on the physical plane.

Chakra balancing is intended to ensure that our bodies will store and use its energy at peak capacity.

Every part of our body needs a certain amount of energy to function properly.  This treatment assists the Body's Chakras in aligning themselves allowing this to happen.
