Service Providers and Services (All Services are Clothes On!!! Please wear comfortable clothing like yoga or sweatpants).

Gina Roethle LMT is a licensed massage therapist, wellness consultant, and mindful movement instructor based out of Milwaukee, WI. She draws her expertise from training and certifications in complementary health practices such as Thai massage, Yoga, Dance, Ayurveda, Reiki, Meditation, nutritional supplementation and natural foods. All participants will receive a Thai Massage with Gina. Thai massage, often called yoga massage, is done on a mat on the ground. It is an incredible form of bodywork! The therapist uses her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. Thai massage also utilizes energy work, which, according to ancient Asian culture, treats the subtle energetic field within the body. It corrects blockages, deficiencies, and imbalances in the flow of this energy, which then is believed to improve the client’s health. 

Ann Fothergill LMT. Ann has been a registered hygienist for 34 years but her interest in holistic medicine has led her to massage, aromatherapy, and Reiki healing.  She is certified in the clinical use of essential oils, is currently a member of NAHA (National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy), and is also a certified Reiki Master practitioner. For more info, please visit http://www.annabellesholistichealth.com/  All participants will receive a reflexology session with Ann. Reflexology is a form of bodywork that involves applying pressure to the hands and feet to produce changes in pain and other benefits elsewhere in the body. The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are certain points or “reflex areas” on the feet and hands that are connected energetically to specific organs and body parts through energy channels in the body. By applying pressure to reflex areas, a reflexologist is said to remove energy blockages and promote health in the related body area.

For more info please visit: http://www.areallybiglife.com/ All particpants will receive a Cranio Sacral session with Elisabeth. Cranio-Sacral Therapy, or CST, is a gentle, hands-on manipulation of a physiological body system called the cranio-sacral system. This system is comprised of the soft tissue and bones of the cranium (or head), the spine and the pelvis. Practitioners use light touch equivalent to the weight of a nickel. As a result of this tender technique, many clients claim that they can fall asleep during their CST sessions. The theory behind cranio-sacral therapy is that when there are blockages, an unharmonious balance in the body can occur. CST releases this blockages and restore the body to balance.
