COLON HYDROTHERAPY

$95 per session

Colon Hydrotherapy
Colon Hydrotherapy is an extended and more complete form of an enema. The concept involves the mechenical  process of infusing warm filtered water into the rectum with the objective of cleansing and balancing the colon. This procedure removes fecal material from the colon walls and dilutes the bacterial toxin concentration in the large intestine. The therapeutic effects of colon hydrotherapy are improved muscle tone which facilitates peristaltic action and enhances the absorption of nutrients from the cecum and ascending colon while minimizing the absorption of toxic waste material. The cleansing effect of colon hydrotherapy reduces stagnation and subsequent bacterial proliferation in the colon and helps to maintain the harmony of the intestinal flora in promoting optimal health.

Core Unwinding with Trigger Points:                                                                             
 
 
What Is Core Unwinding?
 Core Unwinding is a natural unwinding of connective tissues, which allows the body to realign effortlessly.
 
¨Core Unwinding with trigger points is a concept that begins with passive contraction of the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues simultaneously to allow spontaneous release.
 
What is a Trigger Point?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 
^Travell, Janet; Simons, David; Simons Lois (1999). Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction; The Trigger Point Manual (2Vol.set, 2nd Ed.) USA: Lippincott Williams & Williams. ISBN 0-683-08363-5.
¨The term “trigger point” was coined in 1942 by Dr. Janet Travell to describe a clinical finding with the following characteristics:
¨1. Pain related to a discrete , irritable point in skeletal muscle or fascia, not caused by acute trauma, inflammation, degeneration, neoplasm, or infection.
¨2. The painful point can be felt as a nodule or band in the muscle, and a twitch response can be elicited on stimulation of the trigger point.
¨3. Palpation of the trigger point reproduces the patient’s complaint of pain, and the pain radiates in a distribution typical of the specific muscle harboring the trigger point.
¨4. Stated simply, a Trigger Point is a very small area of spasm within your muscle.
 
Trigger Points:
  When you have a trigger point, it pulls a thin band of taut muscles, which runs the length of the muscle fiber. And when you’re looking for triggers, this feels like a guitar string within the bulk of your muscle.
 
¨Trigger Points are part of a protection system.
¨Muscles will tighten up to protect your joints, ligaments, and tendons from being damaged.
¨This protective reflex is very important but becomes a problem comes when  protective reflex gets 
  switched on, but doesn’t switch off.
¨You can’t get rid of Triggers Points.
¨You need Trigger Points as a protective device.
  You need to learn to how to reset the protective pattern. (in other words, turn it off).
 Trigger Points occur in predictable patterns.

CORE UNWINGING TECHNIQUE
 Massaging the Trigger Points flushes the tissue and helps contracted sarcomeres, begin to release.
“Core Unwinding Technique”  goes beyond traditional massage. Using the technique of pin and stretching the impingement area.
 

How My Technique Came About

In the year 2000 and perfected in 2002

As a massage therapist I would often feel what I called "peas" (nodules) in the muscles. These were very tight bands, but I didn't know what those knots were so I took a class in Kinesiology (muscle balancing) to add to my massage modalities.  During the class I could feel where the points were and I would work to release that area.

 When I would really tune into a client's body I could feel there were also other points on the body calling out to me to be released. The class for Kinesiology did not specifically address my questions about those tight "pea" (nodules) knots, but I did learn other useful tools to integrate into my massage practice.

 Often, while working on clients I would be drawn to work on a specific area (not knowing this was a trigger point, had to research to find out what I was feeling and what the client was feeling). With certain techniques (pin and stretching) the muscle would release in that area and the client would tell me what they were feeling with the release and where they felt other actions from that release (referred pain). I could feel the body sigh with relief.

 Both my clients and I started noticing an improvement in the areas my hands had been drawn to. I have clients that had been dealing with pain and stiffness for years with no help from traditional medicine, physical therapy and other types of massage (I’m not discrediting other massage techniques), but with regular use of this technique they were finding increasing relief.

 I continued to add this technique into my massages and that is where Core Unwinding started to become evident. While working on clients, with what I finally realized were Trigger Point issues, I could feel that the core muscles were tight. This feeling was integrated into my own body during those treatments. I can only describe it as a tight winding up, like we used to do to a swing when we were kids. As the muscles would unwind it felt as if we had let go of that twisted swing and it was unwinding back to its original position. I could literally feel this happening in my own body as it was happening to the client’s muscles.

 I always start my clients with a nice smell of Bergamot and or Lavender essential oils: I place a few drops in my hands and hold my hands above their nose and ask them to take two deep breaths in, then I wipe the remaining oil onto their clavicle and shoulders.

 I then start my work at the client’s head so I can get in tune with my client’s energy and the body starts to talk to me. What I mean by that is that I start feeling my client's issue in my own body. I work with my eyes closed to because this allows me to be more in tuned with the client’s body and need. 

It is important to get the Trigger Point to release and then allow a light stretch of the affected body part, I would often be working on the neck and it would just start to unwind. I work with my eyes closed and would be holding onto the Points and then I would feel how the muscle wanted to unwind. The head would start to roll from side to side and then the neck would stretch without any input from me. The rolling and stretching would allow the core muscle group to unwind and return to its normal state. It was amazing to experience and feel how the body knew what to do to get the relief that it needed once the correct spot had been activated.

 I would then feel in my body where the neck was unwinding and I would ask my client “Are you feeling this in between your shoulder blades?” They would say, "Yes". After a short time I could feel in my body that the neck was unwinding down to the sacrum. This meant an unwinding of the entire erector spinae group of muscles which is a core muscle group.

 When this first happened I tried to stop the neck from unwinding and I could not. I tried to make the neck move in a different direction but the client's body would not let me. I then knew that the body was in charge and it knew what it needed to do. With more experience I realized that I was aware when that part of the body was finished unwinding and was signaling that I could move on to working on others areas.

 I started teaching my clients how to find and treat their own Trigger Points with just the use of their own hands to find the tight band of muscles. Then using their fingers or by placing a tennis ball on the area with a Trigger Point and applying light pressure they can release that trigger point. They will feel the trigger point area shift 3 times and then that area will relax. This technique can be applied to as many areas as necessary. 

 Some of my client’s bodies will unwind independently after I’ve released the Trigger Points while other clients require releasing the Trigger Points and then a light touch to hold the Trigger Points as the body is unwinding, I’ll be covering this in the training video.

 Some client’s initially have control issues, which prevent their body from relaxing enough for the body to unwind on its own. If that is the case I continue to relax the area with medium touch massage.

 After the body has received the Core Unwinding session the body recognizes how it feels when the muscles are back in their intended alignment or position. When the Trigger Points are released in subsequent sessions the body takes over control and will unwind on its own. The body seeks to find its natural state to maintain optimal wellness and function.  The area of the body that has just received the Core unwinding will feel light.
