Massage 
Massage has been found  to improve circulation, joint range-of-motion, flexibility and overall well being. It can reduce many common ailments such as stress, muscle tightness, aches and pains - even anxiety and depression  
 
 
 
 
 
Yoga
In addition to massage Yoga is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Practicing yoga gives you a way to honor your body and a healthy way to release stress.
             
Reiki                                                                                       
Reiki is an ancient "hands on" healing art which channels Universal energy for healing.
Reiki heals on a physical, emotional, and mental level. In a Reiki session the recipient lays in quiet, comfortable position while the Reiki practioner channels healing energy through specific hand positions and sacred symbols. The experience is very nurturing and relaxing and many times the recipient drifts into a dream sleep.
 
This is your time to relax and escape.
Honor Your Body
and the
Divine Within!

Massage therapy for those experiencing cancer helps to reduce stress, decrease anxiety, relieve depression, increase comfort levels, and provide spiritual and emotional, as well as physical, support for both patient and care providers. Women experiencing breast or ovarian cancer may find compassionate healing touch effective for counteracting the feeling of invasive touch. Therapeutic massage can also enhance a woman's sense of self-esteem and improve body image.
 
Massage can be beneficial for the person with most any form of cancer when offered by a therapist with training and expertise, and is successfully employed at any stage of the cancer experience.
 
Therapeutic massage opens the inner doors of healing for the person with cancer and their loved ones. It provides a safe,comfortable, and healing place for people to relax and rejuvenate.
Compassionate healing touch helps to bring the
whole person into a state of self-acceptance and centered well-being. Massage therapy also brings the person back to their own body with peace, allowing her/him to breathe, reconnect,
and enhance the strong healing capacity she/he already possesses.
