The lightest touch can offer deep healing. CranioSacral therapy (CST) is a light-touch therapy that focuses on the bones around the face and mouth – known as the cranium – down the spine to the tailbone. CST bolsters the body’s resistance to disease and is also effective for treating a wide range of ailments including migraines, chronic neck and back pain, PTSD and fatigue.

Therapies with Shannon Lemire
Reflexology is a holistic treatment, centuries
old. The reflexes on the feet are a mirror image of the body--organs, glands, bones. The right foot mirrors the right side of the body, the left foot mirrors the left side of the body. When there is an imbalance in the body, the reflex point on the foot will reveal a sensitivity when slight pressure is applied. Working through these sensitive areas unblocks energy paths, leaving you balanced throughout your whole body.
Massage Therapy is proven to reduce blood pressure, anxiety, and depression. It also increases physical stamina, self-esteem, and healthy sleeping patterns. During this therapeutic massage session Shannon will release tight muscles, relax the body, and stimulate circulation. Massage with Shannon cultivates deep relaxation and brings the mind to a place of inner stillness, and connection to your intuitive wisdom.
Reiki Treatment is an energetic, ancient and sacred healing art that enables a deeply meditative and healing experience for body, mind, and spirit. Reiki is received fully clothed through a series of gentle yet powerful hand placements. Tension, stress, and pain melt away under the warm and nurturing touch of the therapist. Chakras and major systems of the body are given concentrated life force energy, enhancing the body's inherent power to heal.
