Craniosacral Therapy is a holistic healing practice that uses extremely light finger pressure to optimize a movement pattern within the body, which is known as the cranial wave. Craniosacral work differs from most other modalities by its lightness of touch and the long, attentive duration of each contact.
Reiki is an ancient healing art rediscovered about 150 years ago by Dr. Mikao Usui. The word "reiki" combines two Japanese expressions: rei, which means "spirit" or "soul," and ki ("energy," or "life force"). Ki is known in different parts of the world as chi, qi, prana or mu.
As I was called to this work of discovering, researching and developing these exquisite oil blends from the Bible, the question kept rising up in me “Why am I being led to this?” The answer “It is your love of the oils that has led you to them.”
"Plants have always provided for human life. They have nourished us with food, provided shelter, and supplied medicine - time tested medicine from the wisdom of the earth combined with the wisdom of the universe."

What Is Lymphedema?
Lymphedema is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid in tissues that causes swelling, most often in the arm or leg. Lymphedema can develop when lymphatic vessels are missing, damaged, impaired, or removed.
Left untreated, this stagnant, protein-rich fluid continues to accumulate, causing the affected area to increase in size, reducing oxygen availability in the transport system, interfering with wound healing, and providing a culture medium for bacteria that can result in infection.
Primary lymphedema is present at birth or can develop at the onset of puberty or in adulthood. The effect of primary lymphedema is a compromised lymphatic system. The cause is unknown.
Secondary (acquired) lymphedema can develop as a result of surgery, radiation, infection, or trauma. Cancer surgeries, which require removal of lymph nodes, put patients at risk of d eveloping secondary lymphedema. Whenever lymph nodes are removed or damaged, there is always a risk of developing lymphedema. Secondary lymphedema can develop soon after an operation or trauma, or weeks, months, even years later.
Radiation therapy can damage otherwise healthy lymph nodes and vessels, causing scar tissue to form, which interrupts the normal flow of the lymphatic fluid. Radiation can also cause a burn similar to a sunburn. It is important to closely monitor the irradiated area for skin changes, which can lead to the development of lymphedema.
A traumatic injury in which the lymphatic system is interrupted and/or damaged in any way
may also trigger the onset of lymphedema.
Symptoms of Lymphedema
Lymphedema can develop in any part of the body or limbs. Signs or symptoms of lymphedema to watch out for include: a full sensation in the limb, skin feeling tight, decreased flexibility in the hand, wrist or ankle, difficulty fitting into clothing in one specific area, or jewelry tightness. If you notice persistent swelling, whether it reduces with elevation or not, you should seek immediate medical advice as early diagnosis and treatment improves both the prognosis and the condition.
