Arethusa Massage & Energy Work is located at
122 S. Main St., New Lexington, OH.
Jessica offers traditional swedish massage with an array of additional healing modalities including:
Reiki -Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. 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.
CraniaoSacral Therapy - Craniosacral therapy is a holistic healing practice that uses very light touching to balance the craniosacral system in the body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area.
According to Dr. John Upledger, craniosacral therapy is ideally suited for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, headaches, chronic middle ear infection, pain, and general health maintenance. It is recommended for autism, fibromyalgia, heart disease, osteoarthritis, pneumonia, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic sinus infections, and gastroenteritis (inflammation of the lining of the stomach or small intestine). It is also used with other therapies to treat chronic fatigue syndrome, back pain, and menstrual irregularity. In addition, other craniosacral practitioners have reported benefits for eye dysfunction, dyslexia, depression, motor coordination difficulties, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD), hyperactivity, colic, asthma in babies, floppy baby syndrome, whiplash, cerebral palsy, certain birth defects, and other central nervous system disorders.
SomatoEmotional Release - (SER) is a way of allowing the body to release those ‘held-in’ experiences. The body, or the client’s Inner Wisdom will only access the tissue memory that the client is willing and ready to address. SER are total-body releases, where the client often remembers the incident, but does not relive the trauma, in present time and release it physically and emotionally. SER cannot be initiated by the practitioner in a session, their job is to facilitate and assist the client to access the healing required for each treatment, rather than have an agenda.
• Dr Upledger recorded that many positive results can be achieved when a client reaches a correct body position that allows for SER: “pain relief, tissue softening, total body relaxation, reduced heart rate, reduced breathing rate and effort, palpable increase in fluid and energy flow, release of heat at a localised area.” Also “the patient can now view the whole incident in a symptom-free condition with a certain emotion-free, objective detachment.”
Sound Therapy - Sound Healing is an effective and proven modality that uses vibrational sound to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace, well being and better health. How does it work? Ancient instruments, including Tibetan singing bowls are ‘struck and sung’ in specific rhythmic patterns to create vibrational sound harmonics at the frequency of “AUM” or “OM”. This sound frequency known as that of Perfection impacts the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls. The harmonic vibrations engage the relaxation reflex and slow down the respiratory, brain and heart rate and disrupt the pain reflex creating a deep sense of well being.
Aromatherapy - the applications and diffusing essential oils to improve a person’s health and mood.
AromaTouch Technique - incorporates simple hand techniques with the power of essential oils to create a powerful whole body wellness experience. It seeks to address four systemic constants that are present in daily life and which may serve as limiting factors in health: stress, immunity, the inflammatory response, and autonomic imbalance.
LaStone Massage - LaStone® Therapy’s form of bodywork involves the use of heated and cooled stones, Geo-Thermo-Therapy, applied to the body to bring about relief to tired and sore muscles, alleviating chronic and acute symptoms that many of us deal with on a daily basis. Thermo-Therapy makes LaStone a success, by combining its principles with the traditional healing practices of the Native American Indians. LaStone Therapy capitalises on these practices with a modern approach.
