MODALITY MINUTE:

A person is a person, no matter how small.- Dr. Seuss

When children are hurting, we hurt too. And what causes children “ouches” as they grow is a culmination of life – from everyday bumps and bruises to difficult births to congenital issues that never seem to resolve.
Craniosacral Therapy addresses the soft tissue and all the energy, emotion, and restriction therein. As a child grows, life collects in their bodies just like it does an adult’s and those things show up down the road in physical pain, emotional disturbances, etc. They may even be presenting themselves now!
In addition, childhood illnesses like ADD, ADHD, and SI Dysfunction to name the more common ones, can be addressed through CST and leave a child calmer, more focused, and able to deal with life. Looking the other way and the latest Rx are not your only options!
If you child is having issues that you just can’t put a finger on, why not try Craniosacral Therapy. It may just be what the doctor didn’t order!!

GENTLE REMINDERS: Beeswax Candles

According to the National Candle Association, 90% of candle manufactures use paraffin, a bleached petroleum residue. No long term studies have been performed to track its health effects but chances are high that paraffin candles contain synthetic scents, artificial colors and metal wicks, and the EPA has stated frequent the use of lead wicks is potentially harmful.
The best the to do? Burn beeswax candles that are naturally scented of scented with essential oils. Beeswax, the cap of the honeycomb, is completely natural, and requires no chemicals to process. Better yet, it is renewable and sustainable. Its natural scent is soft and honeylike. When burned, beeswax emits negative ions, which bond to positively charged dust, pollen, dander, germs, mildew, and food odors in the air and drops them to the floor. Negative ions increase oxygen flow to the brain resulting in increased alertness, mental energy, and decreased drowsiness.
Want the most ‘burn’ for your buck? Beeswax gives you a good run for your money!
