Bodysattva’s Services

In the relaxed and peaceful environment of our healing arts center we provide hands-on therapies and movement practices to assist your healing and relaxation process. Therapies including chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, microcurrent and various massage styles, are all tailored and administered to your specific needs, whether recovering from injury, dealing with pain or de-stressing after a challenging day. In the absence of trauma, pain occurs when the body is unable to adapt to the challenges imposed on it, be it physical or emotional. Though hands-on treatment may be very effective in controlling and reducing pain, ideally, treatment should be given prior to the occurrence of pain eliminating undue suffering. Wellness visits allow for more freedom of activity with less emotional and physical pain and stress, and also help to strengthen the immune system.

Our therapeutic philosophy blends classical and modern disciplines of Eastern and Western origins tailored to the underlying issues of each individual. Your needs are optimally addressed through the experience of each practitioner in concert with the resources of the group. Whether you are dealing with a new injury, chronic pain or you require a new way to manage the many demands of life, our objective is to build long-term relationships based on your wellness goals.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is best known for its effectiveness in treating back and neck pain, but it can also have positive and balancing effects on a much wider variety of problems.  The nervous system is the main pathway to the whole body’s ability to function, and chiropractic works with all of the nerves as well as the muscles and bones in the body to provide comfort and restore balance to the neuro-musculo-skeletal system.  Chiropractic can have positive effects on organ systems and hormone balance, can relieve discomfort associated with strains, sprains, headaches, carpal and tarsal tunnel syndromes, sciatica, and general body aches, pains and stiffness.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine that has been used since the third century to promote health and alleviate pain.   It continues to thrive as a healing art because it addresses a wide range of ailments and disorders.  Acupuncture is based on natural laws that describe the movement of energy in nature and the body.  This energy, known as the “vital Qi”, is analogous to rivers moving on our planet.   Health is promoted when the Qi in the body moves properly, and acupuncture helps to accomplish this through painless placement of thread-like needles to get the vital Qi to flow properly and bring the body back into balance.

Acupuncture beneficially stimulates a number of influential bodily functions -- primarily the nervous system, the immune system, and the endocrine system.  It mediates pain relief, promotes relaxation of muscles and stimulates endorphin release. Acupuncture treats underlying imbalances and promotes harmony. (Back to Top)

Microcurrent

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is an exciting new way of treating nerve and muscle pain and many other conditions using specific frequencies and micro amperage current. There are hundreds of practitioners across the US, Ireland, Australia, and Canada using FSM to create miraculous changes in patients to reduce pain and improve health. Most of the time FSM produces immediate dramatic changes in tissue that make it an indispensable tool in treating pain and many other health concerns.

FSM has been proven to offer successful pain management treatment for:

  • myofascial pain
  • nerve pain from nerve traction injuries, disc bulges, herniations, herpes and shingles
  • kidney stone pain
  • disc and facet joint generated pain
  • fibromyalgia associated with neck trauma (Back to Top)

Nutrition

Food is fuel for our body; it propels us physically, mentally, and emotionally. The food choices we make and the quality of food we put in our system go a long way towards determining the level of our health and vitality.

Good nutrition is the key to preventing disease.

Proper nutrition is as important in adulthood for repair as it is in childhood for growth and development. As we continue to mature there is a constant turnover of cells to regenerate tissue, which includes the brain as well as the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems of the body. The materials used for this repair and regeneration come from the food we eat. Poor quality food choices provide poor quality materials to rebuild tissue, which leads to degeneration, weakness, and premature aging. (Back to Top)

Bodywork/Massage

Bodysattva Healing Arts Centers offers a wide variety of massage therapies.  Each practitioner brings their own style and experience to their technique and is focused on and acutely sensitive to the individual needs of the client. (Back to Top)

Acupressure
Acupressure treatment involves physical pressure to acupuncture points located all over the body in order to allow the chi or qi or life force energy to flow through the meridian channels enhancing circulation and flexibility.  It is believed that this therapy stimulates the body’s internal regulatory system and nurtures a natural healing response. (Back to Top)

Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for therapeutic purposes. Distilled from plants, essential oils help us stay physically healthy through their ability to kill microorganisms while supporting the immune system. Each essential oil is made up of a varied chemistry of components. These components give the oil its therapeutic abilities.
During massage various blends of essential oils are used, blended specifically for an individuals needs. The essential oils work down to the cellular level, and support in detoxing, relaxing and reducing inflammation to help restore health and balance. (Back to Top)

Deep Tissue
Deep tissue massage can be performed on the table or on the floor mat using the feet for deep compression.  Its benefits include stretching and resetting tight muscle, improving joint flexibility, releasing trigger points and toxins, increasing circulation and oxygen to cells, increasing energy flow and decreasing pain an stress. (Back to Top)

Lymphatic
What is Lymph?
Lymph is a clear, viscous fluid which flows throughout the body tissues transporting nutrients at the cellular level and clearing away metabolic waste products.  The lymphatic system is also the highway used by the immune system to transport white blood cells, T-cells, lymphocytes, etc.. throughout the body to fight infections and heal injuries. 
Why Lymphatic Drainage massage is Important:
When the body is traumatized by surgeries accidents, injuries or certain medical condition, the immune system quickly defends the area of trauma by delivering necessary antibodies and nutrients to promote healing.  Extra fluid is required by the body to assure proper cleansing and elimination.  Although it is the body’s way of creating a protective armor, these extra fluids can rob the area of proper oxygen and cellular nutrition.  When the lymph fluids become congested with toxic byproducts and dead cell waste, a sluggish condition is created.  This edema can inhibit circulation of energy, blood and lymph.
Benefits of Lymphatic drainage Massage:
Lymphatic drainage is a very gentle massage which clears the body of waste products and excess fluids. It stimulates and strengthens the immune system.
Eliminates swelling/congestion after any surgery, including liposuction, breast or facial surgery.
Clears respiratory conditions such as bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia and influenza.
Regulates digestive disorders including constipation, spastic colon, bloating, and post-surgical impairment of peristalsis.
Cleanses internal organs of drug residue post-surgery. (Back to Top)

Oncology
Oncology Massage is a relatively new modality in massage, created over 15 years ago out of a need to empower massage therapist to work with individuals on a healing journey with cancer. Oncology massage compliments all treatment choices for Cancer and can support an individual and symptoms during and after Cancer treatment. Learn more about Oncology Massage. (Back to Top)

Parent Infant
Addresses the foundation of attachment through the infant’s significant need for touch.  This approach focuses on cultivating presence, love, respect and well being for infants through the art of infant massage. Within a supportive environment, parents learn a systematic, yet simple, technique that strengthens the parent-infant bond, empowers parents with greater attunement skills, improves infant sleep, relieves stomach and colic problems, enhances physical, emotional and brain development, and creates opportunities to learn to relax together. (Back to Top)

Positional Release
Positional Release is an Osteopathic technique discovered by Lawrence Jones, D.O. that retrains dysfunctional muscular responses.  This modality challenges the "no pain, no gain" notion of healing by passively placing the body into specific positions of ease/comfort that relieve tension and pain in a brief amount of time.
Proprioceptor nerve endings are the structures of the body that report body position to the brain.  They also can sense distortion of tissue that is present due to stress, tension, injuries, holding patterns, or other conditions.  What is accomplished in passive positioning for comfort is to reprogram and reset the neuromuscular mechanism to a more neutral state.  The brain gets the right input thus allowing the muscle to relax.  This is done without force or added trauma to the troubled body part.  Even after many years of existence, persistant muscular pain can be relieved almost immediately with Positional Release, and by repeated and adequate treatment, a harmonious function can be maintained until its tendency to recur is inhibited indefinitely.

Pregnancy
Massage is a wonderful way to relieve the discomforts of pregnancy, relax and increase energy.  It increases circulation, bringing energy-producing nutrients to cells and carrying away metabolic waste products that can cause listlessness.  It also can reduce excess fluid retention.
Massage can help prepare for the birthing process in several ways.  Regular massage to the lower back, abdomen and inner thighs can release chronic tension in these areas for minimal resistance during labor.
Postpartum massage reduces pain and stress from the delivery experience as well as enhances healing of the perineum or abdominal incision.  It also can ease the physical and emotional demands of caring for a newborn. (Back to Top)

Swedish
This type of massage involves long, sweeping strokes and is done on a table using oils or lotion.  Some of the many benefits are improved circulation and flexibility, deep relaxation and pain relief. (Back to Top)

Tibetan Reflexology
Tibetan Reflexology is believed to be the oldest surviving form of Reflexology and is based upon an ancient Tibetan system of healing which can be applied to the feet and lower leg to aid rapid healing. It works in conjunction with the nervous system using the 'Vitaflex' technique (Vita Flex simply means vitality through the reflexes), which stimulates and heals the body, mind and spirit.

Pilates Rehabilitation

Pilates is a physical fitness and movement training program developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates to improve rehabilitation of World War I veterans.   Based on yoga postures, calisthenics and other movement disciplines, he concentrated on conditioning the entire body, but because he believed in the importance of using the mind to control the body he called this system ‘Contrology’.

Pilates exercises focus on deep, core postural muscles which help keep the body balanced and support the spine and organs.  They integrate the awareness of breath and alignment of the spine in support of flowing movement.

The principles of Pilates’ system include alignment, centering, control, and effective breathing.  Proper alignment promotes efficiency of movement.  Centering allows for the energy to originate from what Pilates referred to as the ‘core’ or ‘powerhouse’.  Control of the body enables smooth, efficient mastery of muscles, which leads to precision of movement.  Finally, breath rejuvenates the blood, which keeps the body from stagnating.

At Bodysattva, we stay true to Joseph Pilates’ vision of rehabilitating the human body and optimizing its functions.  Since each person’s body is unique, we design programs to enhance strength, flexibility and control in each individual. Unlike cookie-cutter gym programs where all bodies are treated the same, we dedicate our expertise to meeting personal goals and needs.  Joe’s philosophy of ‘Contrology’ aligns perfectly with  Bodysattva’s objective and mission:  to understand and master our bodies.
