Bodywork for Back to School!
Let's face it. Heading back to school can be stressful for everyone involved even during a normal year. Now with the pandemic and so much uncertainty around returning to school it can feel particularly overwhelming for Parents, Guardians, Caretakers, Teachers, and Kids or Teens. Here at True Blue Wellness we're looking for a way to help everyone out with the transitions to come.
Reiki can be an excellent way to help reduce stress, bolster the bodies immune system, and work on personal goals. Reiki energy is very gentle and nurturing and a full body treatment can induce a calming meditative state that can help promote focus and create ease when faced with transitions. Reiki is suitable for all ages and has no contraindications.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle form of bodywork based in Osteopathic Medicine and has been utilized in the treatment of ADD/ADHD symptoms. Dr. Upledger found during his time studying at the University of Michigan that many children diagnosed with ADD/ADHD had the same restriction pattern at the base of their skull and if the ADD/ADHD was indeed caused by the restriction symptoms resolved over the course of treatment. That being said not ALL ADD/ADHD cases are linked to that restriction in the base of the skull but CranioSacral Therapy can still help with focus, memory, and offer relief for many symptoms or stress.

If you have a younger child you are interested in having treated I'd love to help you find a CranioSacral Therapist who has the training in pediatrics to treat ages 8 and under.
Our Kids and Teen Sessions of Reiki and CranioSacral Therapy can be a great resource for those feeling the strain. Both Reiki and CranioSacral Therapy are extremely relaxing and can help support the body and brain during times of stress. The Kids and Teen Sessions are designed to be short and sweet and budget friendly and we would only charge for treatment time. For example if your child isn't quite ready to get on the table that first session and we spend most of the session getting to know each other and maybe demonstrating some techniques we would only charge for treatment time. For example you book a session but your child is only on the table for 10 minutes of treatment that session would only be $10 ($1/1minute).
