Holistic Therapy Services

Holistic therapy services provide an alternative or complementary approach to treatment to an individual who may be suffering from various ailments connected to either the body or mind.

If you have an interest in any of our holistic therapy services, please contact Elish McPartland directly at (781) 640-7409 or by email at elishmcpar@verizon.net. A confirmed appointment can only be obtained by speaking directly with Elish.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a holistic healing practice that uses very light touching to balance the craniosacral system in the body, which includes thebones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues. The human body is designed as a complete system of tissues and fluids in constant mobility and is self-regulatory. The system works as a unified whole mechanism to manifest health and to resist and combat disease.  Although the treatment approach is very subtle and gentle, the treatment experience can be profound and very healing to the whole system.

Polarity Therapy

Polarity therapy is a holistic, energy-based system that includes bodywork, diet, exercise, and lifestyle counseling for the purpose of restoring and maintaining proper energy flows throughout the body. The underlying concept of polarity therapy is that all energy within the human body is based on subtle electromagnetic currents which are part of the essential process of nature.  The current moves around and through the human body in specific patterns.  Disease is a product of energy blocks and imbalances.

Reiki Therapy

Reiki therapy is a complementary therapy in which a trained practitioner places his or her hands on or above a specific body area and transfers what is called “universal life energy” to the client.  Reiki treats the whole person, body, mind and emotions. The energy will flow to any area of the body that needs it. A Reiki treatment is relaxing and uplifting.
