Gentle therapeutic techniques:

* Soft Tissue & Joint Mobilization

* CranioSacral Therapy

* Visceral (organ) Manipulation

* Neural (nerve) Manipulation


Osteopathic/CranioSacral Therapy is a holistic natural healing art associated with a scientific study of human anatomy and physiology. Many somatic dysfunctions arise from neuromusculoskeletal disorders. The structural problems of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and internal organs affect the blood and lymphatic circulations as well as nervous impulses. I palpate and detect the cause behind the problem. Abnormal function is expressed locally or distantly from another part of the body.

Gentle touch and comfortable positioning relaxes the patients and releases the soft tissue and aligns the bones. Notably, chronic pain arises from the Golgi tendon where the neuro-transmission system exists between bone and muscle. Gentle holdong in the direction of ease unwinds the knotted tendon. With the Osteopathic treatment, the healing effects are lasting because the improved tissue relationships help the person to regain normal function to the best of one's body's ability. 

Osteopathy is not readily available for many people because an osteopath is a conventional physician in U.S.. Many of them don't have the time for manipulations. I learned Osteopathy in Japan and combined with CranioSacral Therapy which is a part of Cranial Osteopathy with the training in U.S.. My clients range from persons with chronic pain to those with brain disorders. I pay close and loving attention to each client offering these unique and wonderful therapies easily and reasonably. Enjoy the comforting hands filled with bio-healing energy integrating your physical, mind, and spirit for the total well-being of an individual.
