Service Descriptions

Manual Therapy is much more than a massage. It's multiple techniques combined for maximum health and wellness. Customized treatments for your specific needs.

 

CranioSacral Therapy

Cost: $80/60 minute session, $45/30 minute session                                   Book Online

The CranioSacral System is comprised of the membranes and fluid that surround, nourish, cleanse and protect the brain and spinal cord.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle yet powerful technique that is effective in releasing neck pain, back pain, and mental stress (among other things). While optimizing the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through and around the brain and spinal cord, CranioSacral Therapy also enhances the "rest and digest" system (parasympathetic system) of the body. This therapy provides a very soothing and relaxing healing experience, while improving the functioning of the central nervous system and allowing the body to self-correct. 

Clients remain fully clothed and simply relax on their backs in a quiet setting. After locating areas of decreased fluid movement within the body, the therapist uses gentle techniques to enhance balanced movement and motion. 

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.

Therapeutic Massage incorporates a variety of advanced modalities that enhance the body’s natural restorative functioning. Light to firm touch is used to release tension, relax muscles, increase blood and lymph circulation, and impart a sense of calm. Therapeutic massage can be used as a collaborative, supportive addition to conventional medical treatment of illness and injury, alleviating pain and stress, aiding soft tissue healing, and revitalizing the body. Also, regular massage can enhance health, providing relaxation, release of muscle tightness, relief from anxiety and tensions, and balancing aspects of body/mind/spirit.


Massage sessions can/may include aromatherapy, hot packs, hot towels, cupping therapy, and/or stretching.  They may also be combined with CranioSacral Therapy and/or Lymphatic Drainage Therapy as applicable.  Discuss options with your therapist.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy 

Cost: $80/60 minute session, $120/90 minute session                                   Book Online

The Lymphatic System is a network of vessels and organs of the immune system which help to remove unwanted toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. 


Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a hands-on technique designed to attain and sustain proper functioning of the human fluid system. The LDT process involves the use of gentle manual maneuvers to aid in the re-circulation of body fluids. 


Lymph Drainage Therapy is a manual technique, done in a specific rhythm and direction to increase the flow of the lymphatic system in the body. The treatment is very relaxing and enhances the parasympathetic system, or "rest and digest". LDT is increasingly used as a preventative measure to boost the immune system during both healthy times and during illness or post surgery/injury. Because of the light touch, this therapy is also good people who are very sensitive or fragile due to age or illness. 

Why Lymphatic Drainage Therapy?

  • Detoxification

  • Enhance Healing after Surgery

  • Decrease Scarring

  • Reduce Swelling

  • Enhance Immune System

  • Decrease Inflammation

Equine Manual Therapy

Cost: $85/horse or $75/horse if 2 or more at same location. Additional travel fees may apply for distant locations.

Contact Karin to schedule apts.

Equine Manual Therapy is beneficial to most any horse, at most anytime in his/her life. By incorporating CranioSacral Therapy, Sports Massage Techniques, and techniques used in the Masterson Method, the horse benefits physically, emotionally, and mentally. Manual therapy techniques help relax and rebalance your horse's nervous system, muscles, and fascia.  This, in turn, enhances all of the systems of the body:  immune, circulatory, muscular, nervous, digestive, endocrine, lymphatic, reproductive, and skeletal.



Combining CranioSacral Therapy and Massage can help your horse become calmer and more responsive to cues/aides, while aiding in the release of toxins which build-up in muscles and surrounding tissues, causing soreness and decreased use and range of motion.  Additionally oxygen is increased which in turn increases metabolism and shortens recuperation time between exercise and events. From stall-bound horses to top performers, all horses benefit from CranioSacral Therapy and Massage Therapy.


Equine Manual Therapy can be custom tailored to fit the needs of each individual horse.  It is not, however, intended to replace veterinary care or diagnose an underlying problem. Please call/text 910-612-6618 or email me (ksiebold@gmail.com) to discuss the needs of your horse and to schedule an appointment.
