For your health, we provide the following:
- In-home and aquatic therapies
- Aquatic therapy and medical exercise
- Massage therapy and holistic healing arts
Aquatic Therapy is an exercise and other therapeutic procedures done in a warm-water swim pool. Water supports healing by warming the body and reducing stiffness. Buoyancy reduces weight bearing and supports the body, allowing exercise with less pain or less fear of falling.
Water pressure improves blood flow and cardiac output without stressing the heart. Water slows movement-improving awareness, allowing time to react, which improves safety.
Aquatic therapy is versatile and is highly recommended for arthritis, chronic pain, back pain, joint replacements, weakness, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, stroke, asthma, M.S., C.P., poor balance, fear of falling, sports injuries, neurological disorders, depression, and many other health disorders.
Massage Therapy and Aquatic Massage
Aquatic Massage offers the full range of massage strokes and treatment, while the body is gently floated, rocked, and moved through the water. The result is deeply relaxing. We have had trainings in watsu, jahara, and wassage water massage techniques.
Traditional table massage by Sheralee offers a variety of techniques, training in Swedish, shiatsu, deep tissue, myofascial release, cranial sacral, and acupressure.
Treatments are complimented by Sheralee's physical strength, diverse education, intuitiveness, and an ability to create a healing environment.
Massage has many therapeutic benefits, including improved circulation, reduced stress, tension, and pain, improved immune system function, cleansing of the body toxins, reduced anxiety, postural improvement, and a deep sense of calm and relaxation.
Holistic Healing Arts
My desire to learn more about the human body and its relationship with the mind has resulted in a multifaceted education. The client and I work together in choosing the best mix of therapies, ensuring a continuum of health improvements and understanding.
- Breathing re-education
- Energy healing, Reiki, and therapeutic touch
- Mindfulness and health consciousness
- Guided healing meditations
- Pain management behaviors
- Yoga, chi gong, energy meridian exercise, and stretching
It is challenging to grasp the concept that our mind state creates our body state. Wellness requires an adjustment in thinking and awareness, so learn how to be an active participant in your health transformation. A holistic approach to health heals the mind, body, and spirit.
