Bodywork and Laser


"Suddenly I realized that if I stepped out of my body, I would break into blossom." - James Wright

For thousands of years, bodywork and energy work have been known to alleviate pain, promote healing, and enhance performance. When applied with loving intention, touch can instill trust, reinforce human-animal bonds and influence behavior. Specifically, bodywork has been shown to:


  • prevent injury by increasing range-of-motion
  • improve coordination and balance
  • expedite healing from soft tissue and joint-related injuries
  • prepare muscles for performance
  • decrease neurologic pain and paresthesias
  • ease digestion and excretion
  • aid in lymphatic drainage and detoxification of metabolic waste
  • boost immune function
  • decrease anxiety, thereby allowing the "learning" (trainable) brain to function
  • deepen the connection between recipient and caregiver/practitioner
