Effective, Long-Term Pain Reduction or Relief

By incorporating craniosacral therapy, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, and other healing modalities into bodywork sessions, we can....

* assist recovery from grueling migraines

*throbbing back and neck pain; arms clients couldn't lift above their elbows; feet and knee pain that forced clients to use canes, walkers, and even wheelchairs; shooting sciatic pain that prevented good sleep or a comfortable car ride; painful cramping and digestion issues that prevented folks from enjoying the foods they loved; sleep apnea and the anxiety-producing choking, chronic overheating that kept folks from travel or just enjoying the summer weather; anxiety that can make hearts and minds race; depression that held some folks hostage in their own beds;

and various other kinds of chronic pain.

 

Detox Bodywork Series (DBS)

 

When I designed DBS therapy in 2014, my clients and I were stunned to see dozens upon dozens of symptoms fall away 

-- far more than just decreasing chronic muscle soreness and limited flexibility it was created for.  

Many experienced results that affected their "whole self." 

Detox Bodywork Series (DBS) is a pain-free, relaxing process that combines effective detoxifying bodywork modalities into weekly 2-hour sessions, booked for 1 or more months at a time. This process helps the body to release toxins lodged in various areas such as the brain, intestines and other organs, the muscles, the lymph system, and joints. 

These areas over the decades can get clogged, tight, achy and working improperly.  DBS treatments "remove the obstacles" which allows the body to reset itself to a lower operating "tempo," (before all the aches and pains set in -- remember then??), creating less wear and tear on the entire body. 



  

"Hands down, the most enjoyable, most effective detox program I've ever tried," Roger, 57, Ham Lake

Try DBS for a month, and watch pain and discomfort decrease -- and a more balanced and healthier you emerge.
