Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy being an ancient therapeutic technique is considered to be one of the oldest forms of therapeutic treatment known. Massage therapy is known as manipulation of the soft tissues in the body to gain a therapeutic effect. Soft tissues include muscles, skin, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and membranes. When Matt is working in the soft tissues he directly impacts the nervous system which immediatly changes how the body feels, calming the mind and body. Massage is well known to help release stress, correct muscle imbalances, recover and prevent injury. It is typically thought to effect the body but it also affects our mind and emotions. A therapeutic massage from Matt is based on the specific needs of the client, everyone needs something different. Matt offers full body therapeutic massage while focusing on specific conditions and needs. Together we will discuss a treatment plan before the session and a have brief assessment to find out how to help you the best.  Often Massage Therapy is combined with Cranial Sacral Therapy to bring further benefit and to accomplish the desired outcome.

Cranial Sacral Therapy
CranioSacral Therapy (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.
Craniosacral Therapy 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, we release restrictions in the body mind and spirit with the intention to improve the function of the entire body.
We are complimenting the body's natural healing process, Craniosacral Therapy is used as a preventive and restorative health measure. This therapy is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:

Cupping Massage
Cupping massage therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine that I have seen dated as old as 5,000 years ago in ancient Egypt. We use special cups that creates a vacuum effect inside the cup which allows for a pulling on the muscle tissues. This will create an increase in blood flow, a release of tight muscles and separation of any tight fascia. Clients choose this method for many purposes, to help with pain reduction, inflammation, increase blood flow and general well-being. Cupping massage is usually included with a deep-tissue massage.

Reiki Master Treatment

Reiki was founded in Japan, the word 'Reiki' translates to universal energy. This universal energy is all around us, its what makes up the fabric of our reality. Reiki is the ability to send universal energy through both palms into the Chakras of the body. . It is beneficial to have a specific intention for what you would like from the Reiki before having a session. There has been numerous counts of physical, mental, emotion and life healing with Reiki. Many people in the medical community recognize Reiki as a way to compliment sugery and emotional awarness. Reiki's popularity is growing with a large amount of people having beautiful life healing experiences. Reiki can help people heal from all ranges of physical or emotional trauma. Reiki has a way of increasing the vitality of the beautiful life you already have. Reiki being Universal energy, we can ask to recieve or let go of anything beacuse we are essentially asking the universe. The depths of Reiki have helped alot of people including myself heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. If Reiki resonates with you, book a session with me and watch how your life will open up new opportunities and let go of anything holding you back.

Chakra Balance and Alignment

The Chakras play a intricate part of our lives, like the mind the Chakras store our life memory of the past and process the information to dictate our actions in the present moment. Reiki is generally used to clear out the non benefical information in the chakra system, this will bring balance and alignment to the body and to a persons life. directly impacting every area of our lifes. In the Chakra Reading I will be communicating with each Chakra and relaying information about whats necessary to keep them healthy. One by one going from the Crown Chakra to the Root Chakra with my hands we will feel how the Chakras are doing, pick up the information and give the reading then allow Reiki to clear anything not neccessary allowing the chakras to rest in a state of harmony.

Below are the main 7 Chakras and its expression in our life. There are more than 7 but in the "western world" we tend to use this model as our focus. To understand it furthur I added a question that we could ask ourselves to further connect with our own Chakras. Each question relates specifically with the individual Chakra and how it represents the different aspects of our life. I also included the colour of each Chakra.
