SOMA Neuromuscular Integration: (SNI) is a system of bodywork which works by way of the fasciae (connective tissue) network, to release chronic, stored structural aberrations, and effectively realigning the entire body.
As the term "neuromuscular" implies, SNI affects both neurological and structural systems. Changes in the structure are accomplished primarily through manipulation of fascia and muscles, whereas the neurological effect is both physiological as well as psychological. Put simply, what happens to the body happens to the mind and visa versa.
While going through the SNI series, the body rebalances itself in gravity, becoming more efficient in function and healthier with greater resistance to disease and injury. People notice more coordination, increased mobility, less pain, increased clarity, creativity and perceptive skills and overall just feel better inside and out!
Deep Tissue Massage: Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.
Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Reiki: Reiki is a form of “laying on of hands” that re-balances and revitalizes the life force energy in our bodies. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Scott is a Reiki Master Teacher and can certify up through the Master Teacher level.
Massage Therapy: Kristy Crow has been a licensed massage therapist for 18 years. She is well respected locally for her expertise in sports massage. She worked with the Sacramento Kings organization for 9 years providing massage services to the players. Her clientele includes athletes of all levels as well as non-athletes of all ages. Some of the common massage techniques used by Kristy include:
Sports Massage: The main purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body's soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. The massage will help prepare the athlete for peak performance, drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and prevent injuries. Sports massage can help prevent those nagging injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether a person is an athlete or a once a week jogger.
Deep Tissue Massage: Deep Tissue Massage is designed to reach the deep portions of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibers. Using deep muscle compression and friction along the grain of the muscle, its purpose is to unstick the fibers of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held patterns of tension.
Myofascial Release Therapy: All muscles, arteries, bones, organs, etc. are held together by a Saran wrap kind of tissue called fascia. Developed in the late 1960's by John Barnes, Myofascial Release works by the manipulation of the fascia that connects and surrounds muscles. Because the fascia is body-wide, a tension or trauma in one part of the body can affect another part. The fascia responds to the trained touch to release the adverse effects of inflammation, tension and trauma.
Shiatsu: Shiatsu, the most widely known form of acupressure, literally meaning "finger pressure" in Japanese, has been practiced for more than a thousand years in Japan. Shiatsu uses rhythmic pressure from 3 to 10 seconds on specific points along the body's meridians by using the fingers, hands, elbows, knees, and sometimes feet to unblock and stimulate the flow of energy. A session may also include gentle stretching and range-of-motions manipulations. Shiatsu is used to treat pain and illness, to relax the body, and to maintain general health.
Swedish Massage: Swedish massage is now known as "traditional" massage. In the 1820s a Swedish doctor, Dr. Per Henrik Ling, developed the first modern method of massage through his study of physiology, gymnastics, and the massage techniques borrowed from China, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Swedish massage includes long gliding strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, and shaking motions. It is effective for most ailments, because massaging the skin, the body's largest organ, sets up a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, and promotes health and wellbeing. To reserve a massage therapy appointment with Kristi please call 916-677-1200.

Behavioral scientists have shown that one-on-one coaching is among the most effective approaches to helping people make and sustain improvements in their lives. The relationship between a coach and client offers a profound level of support, guidance, and encouragement to making changes, without being judgmental. A coach enables change by focusing on a client's stated needs, values, vision, and "goals, helping to bring out his/her personal best.
