Welcome to Dr. Jacqueline's November Specials! 

 

Here's a time lapse video of Dr. Jacqueline performing Constitutional Hydrotherapy, which is normally a 45-55 minute session involving sine wave therapies delivered with appropriately timed contrast hydrotherapy (alternating between hot and cold towel placements). 


In an effort to show you our gratitude and thanks for a great 18 months in business, a 20% discount for several therapies with Jacqueline Thomas, ND, is currently being offered through the month of November:

{scroll down for a description of therapies being offered}

*Constitutional Hydrotherapy: $60 (originally $75)

*Craniosacral, Visceral Manipulation, and Myofascial Release Therapies:

30 minute session: $40 (originally $50)

60 minute session with an additional 5% off: $75 (originally $100)

Simply mention this offer at checkout from now until the end of November and you will receive it! By signing up for these therapies, you acknowledge that you won't be receiving a full Naturopathic Treatment consult and won't be discussing extraneous health issues. If you have not established care with Jacqueline Thomas, ND, you acknowledge that you are seeing her for a therapy-focused visit of one of the aforementioned treatments and would need to schedule outside of this offer to receive comprehensive Naturopathic care. 


About these Therapies:

Constitutional Hydrotherapy is a traditional naturopathic treatment modality used to support the body in entering a parasympathetic state (or the rest and relaxation state) to enable deeper healing. When used regularly, it promotes a calmer mood, stimulates a boost in the immune system, and creates an environment for your adrenal glands to heal. Dr. Jacqueline offers energetic release through Cranio Sacral Therapy, organ-focused massage, and a foot massage. Bodies are unable to heal and recover from trauma when they remain in a stressed, sympathetic (fight, flight, or freeze) state, and Constitutional Hydrotherapy is one of the more efficient ways to support your body in settling into a naturally calmer state of being. 

Craniosacral Therapy uses soft touch that is generally no greater than 5 grams (about the weight of a nickel), which enables practitioners to release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to support the body in resisting disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain, dysfunction, and emotional trauma that finds its home in the subtle physical body.

Visceral Manipulation Therapy is a gentle form of manual therapy that addresses the anatomical and energetic relationships of the body’s viscera and is considered to be organ-specific fascial mobilization. Just like the more familiar joints of the body, our organs are designed to move against neighboring tissues; they slide and glide and have normal range of motion. When their range of motion becomes compromised; whether on account of illness, injury, surgery or trauma (emotional or physical); the body gets stuck and is forced to move around the restriction. In time, this creates a domino-like effect as the rest of the body compensates and shortens while trying to protect the underlying fixation. Like a big snag in a sweater, the strain incrementally spreads outward across the very fabric of the body. Visceral restrictions are often the unexamined root of physical pain, as their musculoskeletal attachments and influences are structurally significant and have deep implications in health when left unaddressed.

Myofascial Release is a physical manipulation treatment that gently releases the tension in the fascia due to emotional or physical trauma, poor posture, or inflammation. Connective tissues called fascia surround the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs of the body. Points of restriction in the fascia can place a great deal of pressure on nerves and muscles causing chronic pain. Practitioners of myofascial release employ long stretching strokes meant to balance tissue and muscle mechanics and improve joint range of motion in order to relieve pain.
