Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a type of bodywork that uses gentle touch along the sacrum, spine and head to help release tension, relieve pain and process emotions and memories stored deep in the body. BCST can help calm and shift your nervous systems from a Fight-Flight mode into Rest-Digest mode where your body does its healing.

Holistic Nutrition is the use of everyday nutrition and eating habits to improve your health. It is based on the interrelationship between your body, mind and spirit as well as your environment. Emma will work with you on a personalized plan to achieve your health goals.

ThetaHealing® is a technique used to transform limiting core beliefs, conditioning and patterns using a combination of meditation and dialogue. ThetaHealing® releases limiting beliefs and replaces them with healthy beliefs to make lasting changes to your health, relationships, family life, work and overall life.


Our team of holistic practitioners recognize the powerful and inherent healing ability of the person and support these intelligent natural processes with an individualized treatment plan.
