A massage at Royal Health Therapies is the perfect way to relax and unwind from a rough week.
Royal Health Therapies general massage utilizes Swedish massage techniques. It targets the topmost layers of muscle tissue with long, smooth strokes, gentle kneading, and rhythmic tapping designed to relieve muscle tension and relax the body.
At your first appointment, Sharron will briefly discuss your treatment goals and expectations with you. Please let Sharron know if you have any areas you'd like her to focus on or stay away from. She will also strive to address any questions or concerns you may have.
Craniosacral Therapy uses a gentle touch by sensitive, intuitive hands to help evaluate and enhance the function of the craniosacral system. This system includes, but is not exclusive of, the membrane and spinal fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. This gentle, non-invasive technique works on the craniosacral system to maintain balance of the muscles and nerves around the head, neck, and back.
Cranialsacral therapy, in addition to other therapies, helps relieve migraine or tension headaches, TMJ symptoms, as well as assistance in post surgical recovery and emotional release from traumas.
Sharron is currently apprenticing for Cranialsacral Therapy under the guidance of a naturopathic doctor. She feels this is an extension of her Myofascial Release techniques.
Reiki is an ancient healing art that utilizes laying hands on a patient to transmit healing power. Reiki, which means "universal life force", is a natural power that was once incorporated into our genetic coding. Through time, this natural power was lost to us, but was rediscovered in the nineteenth century by a Japanese man, Mikao Usui.
Mikao Usui sought the origins of Jesus' and Buddha's methods of healing and found them in the esoteric teachings of India from the ancient remnants of Shiva's early culture.
Clients seek Reiki Energy therapy for a variety of issues including stress reduction, relaxation, increased life force, whole body wellness, promotion of internal peace and harmony, and assistance in healing many different illnesses and maladies.
A Reiki practitioner receives an Attunement of the symbols used in reiki healing from a Master of Reiki who holds Degree III. There are three degrees of Usui Reiki. Sharron has received Degree I in April 1996 from Master Bahni Lee and Degree II in August 1997 from Master Bahni Lee.
Deep tissue massage targets the deepest layers of muscle tissue to release muscle tension and alleviate painful knots. Over time, it can help break up scar tissue from past injuries and surgeries as well as assist the body in releasing toxins, which promotes healthier blood and oxygen circulation.
If you suffer from chronic muscle tension or lingering pain from a previous injury, you may benefit from deep tissue massage. Sharron, Royal Health Therapies massage therapist, will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Over time, you may experience increased mobility, decreased pain, and improved overall health and wellness.
Myofascial release is an effective, hands-on treatment that breaks up restrictive connective tissue, which can cause pain or reduced mobility.
Restrictive connective tissue often accumulates as a result of stress (physical, mental, or emotional), injuries, traumas, or surgeries. Myofascial release utilizes applied pressure and stretching of soft tissue to break up this restrictive connective tissue.
Since 2009, Sharron has trained in myofascial release with Til Luchau and his team. The Til Luchau method is slow and gentle, which Sharron finds beneficial in reducing pain during treatment and any inflammatory response following treatment.
Each massage session can be completed using only myofascial release techniques, or it can combined with other massage techniques (such as swedish massage). Most clients choose a combination in order to facilitate myofascia release, increase circulation, and eliminate toxins released during the session.
Kensio, or Rock Taping, is about movement and support of the body's framework. The basic uses are to improve posture, reduce swelling or inflammation, reduce pain, and support the movement and function of joints and muscles. Clients utilize Kensio for acute or chronic injuries, stresses, strains, surgeries, or for injury prevention or performance enhancement during activities.
Sharron took her FMT (Functional Movement Technique) basic training in August 2016. She is very excited about adding this tool to her practice and has already seen great results.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) encourages the movement of lymph fluid from soft tissue into the circulatory system. MLD massage is gentle; it employs light pressure with a rhythmic, circular motion to stimulate lymphatic flow. Sharron has completed the first week course of the Vodder method of MLD.
Historically, Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) has been used to treat swollen glands and sinusitis. Today, it's primarily used as a therapeutic tool to reduce swelling in lymphedema following breast surgery. Clients whose lymphatic tissue or lymph nodes have been damaged or removed may benefit from MLD therapy.
The use of Manual Lymphatic Drainage should be re-evaluated if the following symptoms occur:
Raindrop therapy combines the use of therapeutic grade essential oils, massage oils, and specific massage techniques to facilitate relaxation, balance the body’s energy, and rejuvenate the mind.
Young Living’s Raindrop Therapy was created by Gary Young whose inspiration for the therapy came from his experience with Native American Lakota wellness traditions. The seven essential oils used in the therapy are basil, cypress, marjoram, oregano, peppermint, thyme, and wintergreen. In addition, Raindrop Therapy uses two essential oil blends and two massage oil blends created by Young Living.
LaStone therapy is a superior form of hot stone therapy that uses a combination of hot and cold stones to help the body relax, soothe aching muscles, and detoxify.
LaStone massage offers a number of health benefits. Those who regularly undergo LaStone massage treatment may experience:
LaStone therapy at Royal Health Therapies provides a soothing, comfortable environment to relax and destress.
As health care changes, new treatments arise that enable individuals to become more involved in managing their own health. Colon Hydrotherapy, or colonics, is one such treatment.
Colon Hydrotherapy helps promote a healthy digestive system and proper waste elimination, which directly impacts the well being of the body. Dr. Bernard Jensen, a proponent of colon cleanses, has said "Death begins in the colon". If toxins and mucus are allowed to build up in the colon, they are recirculated back into the blood stream, which can cause "brain fog" and negatively impact overall health. Colon Hydrotherapy flushes these poisons from the body.
At Royal Health Therapies, Sharron utilizes a Colon Hydrotherapy system that gently washes the colon with warm, filtered water, helping remove stagnant waste from the colon. No additives are added to the wash during the process.
The benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy include:
Many clients also utilize Colon Hydrotherapy to kick start a weight loss program, as a colon wash can remove pounds of decaying fecal matter from intestinal walls.
Sharron has received training for Colon Hydrotherapy from Specialty Health Products in Phoenix, AZ in 1997. The Colon Hydrotherapy system Sharron uses features:
