Based on the principles of energy in which the practitioner transfers healing energy to you through touch. This activates the body’s natural healing process in order to restore physical and emotional wellness, and may help in decreasing stress, anxiety and pain.
Reflexology is a massage technique used on points in the hands, head and feet to relieve tension and treat illness. These points in the hands, head and feet are linked to body systems and organs which can be restored by the technique. Reflexology is often used to help reduce and eliminate chronic pain.
Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft tissues in the body muscles, ligaments and tendons which not only helps with relaxation but also has positive physical effects on the body, including improving posture, blood pressure and circulation. Massage therapy can also help in rehabilitation; reducing stress, and reducing anxiety.
A way to decrease anxiety and decompress, is by participating in one of our yoga or meditation sessions. The sessions will be run by our registered nurse, they are designed and tailored to specific groups. The groups will be small, in order to provide the best experience possible.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction which allows the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a soft touch, while the client is lying down and fully clothed, the therapist releases restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. The reason the touch is so light is because it uses the concept of working with the body instead of against it. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease and it is effective for a wide range of medical problems.
Our energy systems are alive and they know exactly what they need for perfect health and vibrant energy. An energy healing will help correct energy imbalances, clear blockages and repair tears in your energy field. Bringing energies back into balance can effect great change in the way you deal with the world and allow you to see life from a new perspective.

This is a ‘must-buy book’ for mental-health workers, licensed social workers, licensed professional counselors, and licensed marriage and family therapists, as well as first responders and their supervising managers, and/or the organizations for who these helpers work. This research study focuses on keeping the helping work-force professionals mentally and emotionally stable after encountering second-hand trauma from their clients or patients. This research identifies Secondary Traumatic Stress – or Vicarious Trauma – and illustrates real-life examples and recommends self-care options.
First responders, social workers, and mental-health professionals encounter experiences directly or indirectly through helping others in emergencies following trauma care, and/or mental health care treatments. While these workers help others, they may also experience vicarious trauma or they may ‘re-experience’ past traumas of their own re-lived via their patients or clients. Mental health professionals Vicarious Trauma experiences may directly and adversely affect services provided to their own patients and clients.
This qualitative research study provides insight into the minds of social workers who treat patients with trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or other high-stress emotional, physical, abuse, traumatic, and/or mental conditions. Social workers may be affected vicariously via VT/STS – through daily services to patients or clients as mental health professionals. Readers of this book can feel and understand the vicarious trauma stories from lived experiences of social workers and helpers who work with these patients and may vicariously experience or re-experience trauma from their own lives.
This research acknowledges the presence of VT/STS. The researcher also identifies care of symptoms presented by mental-health workers, licensed social workers, licensed professional counselors, and licensed marriage and family therapists who are exposed to and may suffer VT/STS from their clients. This study documents how some social workers treat their own mental, emotional, and physical VT symptoms with ‘self-care,’ as well as how their supervisors can acknowledge and provide support directly to the mental health professionals to reduce or alleviate VT/STS.
The participants in the study provided insight on how they provided or created their own ‘self-care’ treatments. The researcher also provided recommendations for organizations to be aware of VT/STS in their mental health workers and what steps organizations can take to reduce or make available options to their workers to reduce both emotional and physical VT/STS symptoms
