CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.  The body has a natural affinity to self -correct and heal but this ability is often compromised due to overwork, injuries, emotional or physical stress and trauma, or over use of the body.

        Such stressors negatively affect the function of the central nervous system and potentially every other system of the body. Through gentle assessment and manipulation, the CranioSacral  therapist facilitates the release of tension and restrictions in the fascia, cranium, cerebral spinal fluid, helping to restore proper body mechanics, nerve impulses and circulation and fluidity of the body. This approach also increases body awareness and the mind /body connection.

SomatoEmotional Release (SER) Therapy

SomatoEmotional Release (SER) is a therapeutic process that helps restore the mind, body and spirit of residual effects of past traumas.  The body often retains physical forces and emotional energy activated by physiological, emotional, spiritual trauma. The body in its wisdom acts to protect itself and thus can “wall off” or compress this energy into the tissues and structures of the body.  The body attempts to accommodate and compensate for the short term until there is resolution, however long-term accommodation can develop into symptoms of physical pain, dysfunction, and emotional stress. Distress to our mind, body and spirit.

         SER aims to dissipate the residual effects of past injuries, stresses and held trauma’s which influences our physical, emotional and spiritual health, thus restoring, rebalancing and enhancing the mind, body, spirit connection.

CranioSacral therapists are able to detect disturbances in the cranial sacral rhythm to help them identify areas of dysfunction, such as cranial, sutural, membrane and other soft tissue restrictions in the body. Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

Martez has been in practice for over 24 years using an integrative and holistic approach. Her massage is a slow and gentle, using energy instead of force to calm and unwind the central nervous system's fight and flight response. This approach allows for deeper massage work to be done easily, while minimizing the body's pain/stress response. Clients leave feeling with a renewed mind, relaxed body and restored spirit.
