Description of Therapy: Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a gentle, light touch therapy, BCST releases tensions held deep in the body and central nervous system. This release allows for the possibility of self-alignment and balance in all systems of the body. BCST is performed with the client fully clothed, on a comfortable massage table, in a quiet and nurturing environment. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered from a distance, by light touch or hands close to the body, and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy, HeartMath techniques are simple tools that focus on teaching us how to listen to, and follow, the intuitive information of the heart. We can learn how to better make decisions, and to use the power of the heart to manage the mind and emotions. The heart sends neurological information to the brain and the rest of the body. The core of the HeartMath philosophy is that the heart, physically and metaphorically, is the key to tapping into an intelligence that can provide us with fulfillment.
Insurance: At this time, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki and HeartMath techniques are not covered by Medicare, Medical Assistance, or most insurances companies and HMO’s. However, Reiki and Craniosacral Therapy are sometimes eligible expenses for Health Savings Accounts/Flexible Spending Accounts; this sometimes requires a referral from a physician or chiropractor and sometimes does not require a referral.
