Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.) is a systematic process of pressure point type therapy that re-establishes balanced nerve function and communication between the divisions of the central nervous system: the conscious and subconscious. This communication can be disrupted by physical and emotional trauma as well as environmental toxins.

The combination of working through specific pressure points in a specific order while concentrating on specific memory stresses corrects the mind/body communication channels and restores the body’s self-healing abilities. Once restored, the body can correct conditions traditionally treated with medications or surgery.

Therapeutic Touch

Therapeutic Touch is a method of treating the human energy field, specifically to remove the imbalance or disorder caused by disease. Despite the name, physical contact is not always involved. Because a person’s energy field extends beyond the skin by several inches, the practitioner can evaluate and facilitate smooth energy flow without direct contact.


Reiki is a Japanese method of energy healing. Instead of balancing or clearing out an energy field, Reiki focuses on the level of “life force energy” in a person. When low on this energy, people are more likely to become ill, stressed, depressed, or otherwise fall into a negative state. When a person is full of this energy they are more happy, healthy, and able to recover from set-backs more quickly.

Craniosacral Therapy

The craniosacral system is the membranes and fluid that surround, protect, and nourish the brain and spinal cord – the central nervous system. The central nervous system is what makes the body work – it connects your conscious and subconscious thoughts and you body. It keeps you breathing and your heart beating. It is how your thought to get up and walk around becomes action.

Obviously, brain or spinal injury is a big deal. However, in protecting the central nervous system, the craniosacral system can also be injured mostly though tissue distortion resulting from daily stress and strains. If left untreated, those injuries can lead to damage of the brain or spine. Luckily, the craniosacral system is more easily corrected.

Though light touch Craniosacral Therapy, disruptions to the flow of cerebrospinal fluid can be corrected. As with other energy healing methods, Craniosacral Therapy brings the body’s systems back into alignment and rejuvenates the body’s own healing capabilities.
