Shiatsu and Reiki are beneficial for common ailments such as: shoulder and neck tension; whiplash, back, hip, arm and wrist pain; knee, ankle, foot and toe problems; headaches & migraines; stomach disorders; stress & anxiety; and depression. Shiatsu and Reiki are excellent for: pregnancy, maintenance of overall health, preventative health issues.

Shiatsu is a Japanese style of acupressure that uses gentle stretching, joint rotations and massage techniques for a complete body treatment. Acupressure points are stimulated by Carly to clear blockages (physical and emotional), increase circulation, release tension and stress and promote relaxation.

Shiatsu massage moves body energy along meridians to promote healing and balance. When these 'rivers of energy' are open and unblocked, the energetic Chi flows freely and allows healing to occur from a natural state of balance and harmony.

Reiki is energy that is passed to the client through Carly’s hands, supporting healing and promoting relaxation.

"Carly is a breathe of fresh air in the health and wellness community. Her Shiatsu treatment was a perfect adjunct to the acupuncture I had just been receiving. I found Carly’s touch soothing and comforting. I came to Carly curious and hoping to address chronic lumbar and sciatic pain. The pain had become constant for about 9 months prior to my first visit. It originated from repeated pelvic injuries from falls, car accidents, etc. Those injury sites were aggravated by inflammation and referral pain coming from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). I was a mess. Carly uses these Tibetan Bowls when she performs her Shiatsu treatment and placed them over a few regions of the spine. I didn’t know if the intention was to balance chakras or release muscles so I had an open curious mind. When she placed the first bowl on my lumbar spine, even the light weight of the bowl made me aware of the pain and tension in the area. When she rang the bowl, the sensation was like a small hole had simply opened in my low back and my tail bone began to relax towards the table as the muscles of my low back began to relax. The longer she rang the bowl, the bigger the hole grew in a swirling manner until all the stress and pain in my low back were gone and my spine was completely relaxed. It literally unwound the tension in the whole region. I was stunned at the simplicity and effectiveness of that one portion of her treatment. The rest felt great and balanced the flow of chi in my meridians. The relief stayed with me for several days and with a change in diet and a few more treatments, I am maintaining long pain free periods with infrequent flare ups." Ronda Maxwell, RMT

"Shiatsu was a very enjoyable and amazing experience. I found Carly to be well informed. She explained exactly how this procedure works for first time clients. This was the most relaxing massage that I have ever received. I will definitely refer some friends to her." Anonymous
