I wash all of my linens in hypoallergenic detergent. So for those who are sensitive to detergents with fragrances, you can rest assured only natural and gentle soap is used.
For the expecting mommies out there, sometimes you need help to induce naturally. The trigger points that I avoid during the majority of the pregnancy, we can focus on closer to 40 weeks to help get you closer to labor. Ear seeds and reflexology are a great way to help the body with speeding up labor as well.
I do ask that clients not wear any perfumes, colognes or synthetic fragrances to their appointment. I, as well as other clients, have allergies to them.
Ear seeds are tiny stick-on seeds, beads or magnets that are used on very specific points of the outer ear. By applying this small pressure to acupressure points it stimulates the body's ability to heal and correct dysfunction. This form of therapy is called auriculotherapy which is a traditional Chinese medicine technique.
Ear seeds are a needle free way of promoting balance within the bodily systems. As with the hands and feet, there are hundreds of acupressure points that correspond to the organs and other areas of the body. Unlocking blockages within the body allows the energy or Qi to move freely.
Ear seeds are used to treat an array of conditions such as:
*acute pain from injuries
*headaches and migraines
*anxiety disorders and stress
*low back and sciatic pain
*mid back and neck pain
*lack of libido
...just to name a few.
Are Ear Seeds Safe?
Ear seeds are used with little adhesive stickers and do not use needles. Ear seeds are generally considered safe, as they are noninvasive and simply rest on the outer ear. You can experience some tenderness and redness as they stimulate the acupressure points. If you have more discomfort than that simply remove them. Please let your therapist know if you have a latex allergy.
My name is Heather and I have been a licensed massage therapist for 13 years. I am full body certified in neuromuscular therapy, which is a medical form of massage. I specialize in pain relief from symptoms such as sciatica, low back pain, carpal tunnel dysfunction, tennis elbow, mid/upper back and neck pain, headaches/migraines, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, frozen shoulder/rotator cuff issues and more.
I am also certified in prenatal massage. The trigger points that are avoided during pregnancy can be focused on towards the end of the pregnancy if you are wanting to self induce. I am also certified in reflexology and auriculotherapy (ear seeds).
Ear seeds are a treatment that acupuncturists developed many years ago. The seeds can be placed on the acupressure points of the ear instead of needles. The seeds are a tiny pellet from the vacaria plant, 24 kt gold, stainless steel or magnets on a small sticker. They usually stay on the ear for a week or two providing continued relief from issues like bodily pain, seasonal allergies, insomnia, stress/anxiety, period cramps, menopause, and more.
I am also a certified Bach Flower practitioner. Flower essences are a holistic form of medicine similar to homeopathy but not quite. They are tinctures that heal negative emotions/state of mind and certain personality types. Flower essences help with emotions such as anger, anxiety, jealousy, sadness, depression, sorrow, loneliness, grief, feeling overwhelmed, lack of self confidence, shock, trauma, self sabotage, procrastination and more. Then there are certain personality types such as; those who are overly critical and judgmental, those who are people pleasers and don't advocate for themselves, the mother hen types that "love people to death" and want to dictate the lives of their
family members, those who work all the time and don't take time to rest, people who are overly harsh on themselves and more.
My goal is to help my clients have a better quality of life whether it be physical pain or navigating the things that life throws our way emotionally.
