Because it stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself, acupuncture is a valuable standalone or complementary treatment to conventional medical treatment of almost any condition. It is a minimally invasive and extremely safe procedure that stimulates the nervous system and connective tissue in ways that no other intervention can—no medication, therapy, or surgery can do what acupuncture does.  May include cupping, guasha, moxibustion &/or Craniosacral Therapy optional & as needed.

 

Craniosacral Biodynamics is one of two variations of craniosacral therapy offered at Big Heart. It is a subtle and profound healing art that uses gentle, respectfully negotiated touch as a form of deep listening & attunement to the whole of a person so as to encourage, augment & support innate healing processes. It is a powerful way to address & promote healing of pain, trauma & the various kinds of suffering or disease to which we may be subject. The deepest aim & expression of this therapy is the healing that arises from our supported sensed & embodied remembering of the living source & ground of our being. Learn more about this therapy here. Note: Please schedule initial appointments for 90 minutes. Subsequent sessions can be 60 or 90 mins as needed or preferred.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is one of two variations of craniosacral therapies offered at Big Heart. CST is a light touch, whole body treatment that supports and nourishes the central nervous system. By normalizing the environment around the brain & spinal cord and enhancing the body's ability to self-correct, it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. CST aids coping mechanisms to allow for better management of stress, improves overall well-being, bolsters resistance to disease and produces profound, positive changes.

Cupping is a unique & often pleasant treatment in the Traditional Chinese Medicine toolbox. While massage is performed by applying pressure, cupping is the inverse, using negative pressure to lift, open and expand the body’s soft tissues for circulation of fluids and energy through channels & points. A potent therapy for many pain conditions, tension, congestion and stress. Treatment may include Chinese Medical Massage (Tui Na), guasha,  luk pra kob (Thai herbal compress) &/or moxibustion depending on your needs that day.
