Therapies

Visionary Craniosacral Work ®

VCSW® uses gentle touch to assess and release patterns of tension to restore the body’s inherent self-correcting mechanism.  Clients may feel muscle releases and subtle shifts as their body realigns. Clients comment that they have less discomfort, feel more ease in their body and have increased range of motion. The number of sessions needed varies and depends on the complexity of the presenting conditions.  Clients are fully dressed during sessions. Please wear comfortable non-restrictive clothing.

VCSW® is a whole body treatment that may be useful in treating a number of conditions including: acute and chronic pain, muscular imbalances, repetitive strain injuries, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome,  headaches, neck and shoulder issues, fatigue, tension and anxiety.

Advanced Integrative Energy Healing™

AIEH specializes in the biofield, the bio electromagnetic field that surrounds and interpenetrates the human body.  The biofield can be excessive (over charged), deficient (under charged), unbalanced or blocked which may lead to fatigue, anxiety, tension, pain and illness.  Clients may feel subtle shifts as their energy field balances and comes into coherence.  Clients report feeling more grounded and balanced, a deeper sense of well- being and increased vitality. 

The number of sessions recommended varies dependent on the complex health history of each individual. Clients are fully dressed during sessions. Please wear comfortable non-restrictive clothing. Energy work may affect blood sugar levels.  If you are diabetic please bring your blood glucose meter, snacks and allow an additional 20 minutes after your session to measure your blood sugar levels.

Fascial work

Just like a rope, the network of fascia that connects the whole body can literally become wound up and taut leading people to feel pain, tense and anxious. Repetitive movements or injury from sprains, strains, twists, compression or contractions can become chronic from stress and compensation.  Restrictions and misalignment affect the body’s stability, flexibility and ease of movement.

The interconnection of fascia is such that restrictions (i.e. twisting or contraction) in one area of the body can affect another area of the body.  Just like the tug on any part of a net or fabric impacts the whole fabric, knee pain may be caused by a restriction in the opposite shoulder which affects the whole body’s alignment and function.  Shelagh works with the fluidity of the body and muscle memory to release patterns of strain and restriction to support the body to realign which may result in improved balance, stability and ease of movement.
