Trees have many traits that mirror the skills we need to create healthy habits and are therefore a good reflection of the envisioned work at Cedar and Birch Wellness. Trees are rooted and grounded, adapt to their environments, protect themselves from external forces, have a strong base with many branches reaching for the stars, come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, can stand on their own, yet gain strength from other trees, and live long lives. Cedar and Birch trees are symbolic of new beginnings, cleansing, forethought, healing and protection and a good representation of your self-care practice.

Oncology massage can be very beneficial when managing cancer pain and treatment. Bodywork can help assist in relieving nausea, constipation, physical and emotional stress, and insomnia. Due to medical considerations, it is important to ensure your physician has cleared you for massage therapy and it can be quite helpful if there is an open line of communication between the massage therapist and physician, which will help ensure that any potential complications, such as lymphedema can be avoided.

PRE- and Post-NATAL Massage

Muscular Therapy is safe and health promoting during and after pregnancy. As the pregnancy progresses, massage can help the body adjust to the changes, relieve discomforts caused by pregnancy, and aid in recovery. While a few things are contraindicated during pregnancy, the major difference is positioning and the pregnancy progresses. Bolsters and pillows are used to ensure your comfort and protect your baby.

Reiki energy healing is a technique in which a trained practitioner uses a sequence of light-touch hand placements to channel energy in order to activate the client’s natural healing processes and promote emotional and physical well-being. Treatments are conducted fully clothed with the client lying down in a relaxed position. Many people report-feeling sensations of warm or cold tingling, deep relaxation, and emotional release during and for a period following the treatment.

Cupping uses either suction or heat to create negative pressure above the surface of the tissues. This lift creates space for underlying structures and facilitates rigid soft tissue to release, loosens adhesions, activates muscle spindle reflexes that relax contractile tissue, and retrains myofascial structures. The localized expansion of tissue also promotes the secretion of synovial fluids in joints , metabolism in the skin to improve sweat and sebaceous glands, flushes capillary beds, drains stagnant blood and lymph, and assists in re-supplying vital nutrients to the tissues.

Some benefits include:

-       Cleans and stimulates the circulatory system

-       Clears stagnation and debris locally and systemically

-       Loosens connective tissue and adhesions

-       Stretches musculoskeletal and myofascial structures

-       Opens joint capsule and stimulates synovial fluid

-       Stimulates the nervous system effecting a myriad of neurological issues.
