What makes Flow unique?
Flow is a unique form of adjustment developed to help the body efficiently dissipate stress and begin to function with greater harmony, resiliency, and peace. Each session enhances the function of every , cell, tissue and organ of your body by increasing circulation and the health of both your immune and nervous systems.
Flow is a very gentle, specific, touch made along the spine. This touch, made at the right time and place, addresses the body at the neurological level, allowing the body to make changes in patterns. This in turn increases oxygen and blood ﬂow throughout the body, resulting in an overall greater sense of ease. Due to these changes, people often notice significant shifts in their health and well being, including a decrease in symptoms. Flow sessions can last anywhere from three minutes up to thirty minutes.
Flow was developed to assist the body in releasing stress by dropping tension that is stored in the cells and tissues. As the body releases stress, it moves from a state of protect and defend (fight or flight) to a state of healing and growth. What makes Flow unique is the direct communication that happens neurologically. Often, 2 to 5 touches in less than 5 minutes can bring substantial changes.
Stress is part of life, but there can be huge differences in how one person, versus another responds to stress. Ideally, after a stressful event we go back into recovery mode, which is important for our overall health. When we are at the high end of stress, like a flight/fight/freeze situation, all of our energy goes to the muscles to take action and protect us. When we are at the other end of stress, meaning no stress, all of the energy of the body is going to our internal organs, digesting food, healing injuries, and boosting our immune system.
In today’s world, many people’s bodies respond to stresses such as paying bills, work that they do not enjoy, family, etc. as if these are life or death stresses. The healthier the nervous system, the more it will respond appropriately. Most people who receive Flow notice that while they still have stresses in their life, they are better able to handle them. Often they are better equipped to deal with situations and people, and notice they are more efficient. In addition their overall health improves.
What makes this approach unique is the direct communication that happens neurologically which allows for tension to release. Often, two to five touches, made in less than 5 minutes can bring substantial change. In addition, the goal is not to fix, or change anyone. We see the perfection of the person and their body, without judgement. The purpose with Flow is to connect through a light touch, and let the nervous system, the body decide what it wants to do next. For many people this can be a shift which leads to symptom relief, but that is not the primary purpose, because removal of pain, is not always a sign of improved health. What is more important is the body learning to respond in the most appropriate manner to it’s environment. We are allowing the body the opportunity to make changes from within, which is more empowering than trying to force something to change when it is not ready.
This can be done at any time and is especially useful when a person is experiencing physical discomfort or stress, as well as emotional and behavioral conditions.

What should I expect?
When you arrive at our office, you will first go through an examination of your spine so we can determine the degree of tension and the specific areas in which stress is manifested. When she has made the necessary assessments, you will lie face down on the table. Heather will locate the areas of ease, or repoire, on your spine and gently touch them in order to facilitate the release of tension. These light contacts allow you to be an active participant as your body releases tension.
As greater brain-body awareness is achieved through care, the body moves away from defensive, adaptive patterns that are no longer needed, creating greater ease and flexibility in your spine and your life. You can experience freedom from past stresses, traumas and programming that may be blocking your potential for optimum health, happiness and well-being.

Flow has been beneficially used on all sorts of animals; wild or domesticated including Horses, Rhinos, Tigers, Cats, Dogs just to name a few.
