Vital Touch, we use a combination of natural therapies for optimum health:
Nutrition is the foundation of natural medicine. Diet is therapy
via the use of whole foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, free-range and organic meats and foods which have
little or no artificial ingredients and preservatives. Supplementation of multivitamins and minerals, herbs and nutraceuticals
may sometimes be necessary.
and lifestyle modification techniques are essential for wellbeing and stress relief. For example, stress management and reduction,
breathing techniques for relaxation, exercise therapy for wellness, imagery and visualization and goal setting are used to
guide the client back to wellness.
and plants have been used for healing for centuries. They are fairly safe and non-toxic if given in the right form and dose.
Some herbs do interact with medications, care is needed in their use.
Homeopathy works on the principle that a like cures a like. It is a system of medicine that treats a dis-ease with
very minute quantities of an agent that will produce the same symptoms as the dis-ease when given to a healthy person.
In a person with those particular symptoms, the remedy will heal the body. It is very safe and works at a physical, mental
and emotional level.
Massage & Bodywork
customized bodywork to suit your needs. Customization includes various types of bodywork such as:
- Swedish & deep tissue/sports massage
- Russian medical massage
- Hot stone massage
- Pregnancy massage
- Active muscle energy
- Myofascial release
- Neuromuscular techniques
- Benefits include deep relaxation & stress reduction, pain relief associated with tight and tense muscles,
reduction in swelling, improvement of circulation, gentle detoxification, relieves headaches, reduces blood pressure, clears
the mind & increases awareness of the mind and body
This is performed on a person, fully clothed, using light touch. This therapy balances the nervous system and loosens restrictive
tissue. It helps us breathe deeper, reduces blood pressure and slows the body for deep relaxation. Sometimes it can be more
effective than deep massage, encouraging your own natural healing mechanisms to dissipate negative effects of stress on your
central nervous system.
Somatoemotional release is a type of craniosacral therapy that dissipates
physical and emotional trauma from the body, if it is being held long after an injury has occurred. For example, some
people have symptoms years after a motor vehicle accident or a fall. The therapist uses craniosacral touch with therapeutic
imagery and dialogue to guide the client gently back to health; the outcome is the body releasing pent-up restrictions
that were the cause of symptoms.
Reiki, Master level
Reiki is a particular system of healing that is gentle, non-invasive yet powerful. Healing is accomplished by
light touch to the body, whereby the practitioner helps activate the client's body's own natural ability to heal itself. Reiki
goes to wherever it is needed most, releasing blocked energy, clearing the body of toxins and creating a state of balance
