Herbal Medicine: We carry small selections of functional herbal tea blends and herbal supplements to further aide her clients with acute or chronic health concerns. Rebecca cannot and does not claim to diagnose or prescribe.
As far as our minds have developed, our bodies are not even close to catching up. We are still as human as we were thousands of years ago. This meant that our bodies still recognize and are designed to recognize the same entities that lived among us back then. Plants have always co-existed with us and we have always relied on their powerful offerings. We have relied on them for shelter, for fuel, for food, for transportation and for medicine. Throughout history it was never a question as to why we used plants to heal. Now we have lost this knowledge and even the knowledge that our bodies hold healing power within themselves which can be strengthened with plants known as herbs. Today, herbalists are the ones who remember that because we are both of the earth, herbs hold the ability to heal us not just physically, but spirituality and emotionally as well. A truly holistic healing approach.
Massage Therapy: Massage of soft tissue and human touch has always been used as part of the healing process in all cultures. Rebecca uses a variety of techniques to release restrictive adhesions, increase joint range of motion, increase circulation, decrease pain and restore balance within the body. Massage therapists need to be therapists of both the mind and the body, and our treatments are customized to make sure each client has a healing experience on all levels. Massage can be very grounding and reconnects one's mind with their body, which often have poor communication due to our constant distraction from the outside sources of life. Aligning the physical body allows the person to focus then on healing their mind and spirit.
"...the physician must be acquainted with many things and assuredly with rubbing, for things that have the same name have not the same effects. For rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose or loosen a joint that is too hard." - Hippocrates
Reiki & CranioSacral Therapies:
"Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness. " -Hippocrates
