Restore for Life is an original holistic light touch therapy
Why light touch?
Light touch works to access and activate the intelligence of your own body, enabling it to work efficiently and effortlessly for better overall physical, mental and emotional function.
Is it for me? (Can it help what I have?)
Restore can act as preventative care but can also work directly on a multitude of physical, psychological and developmental conditions, which include (but are not limited to):
• Autism, special needs, learning disabilities, ADD and other cognitive function
• Acute and chronic illnesses like cancer (during and after treatments), lymphedema, asthma, diabetes, stroke, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis (MS) and other short or long term problems with immune function, pain, mobility and function
• Depression, anxiety, OCD, stress and trauma
• Inflammation, impingements, and injury (like burns and broken bones)
What kinds of effects might I notice with Restore?
Benefits include but not limited to, deep relaxation, better lymphatic function, increased circulation, fewer neurological impingement, increased physical function, better cognitive function, more clarity and increased focus. Clients have noted improvements in depression, anxiety and pain as well as decreased impact of trauma. Other positive results include building stability, improved conscious awareness and decision making, and developing confidence and a positive attitude for personal growth and health.
Sounds great, so how does it work?
The health of every cell in your body depends on the connectivity of the entire system on all levels. Restore uses the natural approach to reconnect and repair all aspects of healthy body function through the neurological system as well as the fascia and other connective tissue and its matrix.
Gentle light touch and your natural energy are the stimulus that ignites a response by the nervous system. In response to the sensation of touch, a wide range of receptors in your skin activate sensory neurons. These neurons then send information up to the part of the brain known as the somatosensory cortex. As these chemical messages flow into the brain, it processes, interprets and responds to those messages by working to make corrections in the area that sent the signal. How can it do that? The somatosensory cortex is a quite large region, but most importantly, every part of the body is directly represented in it, so it’s a complete internal body map. Using special connections between sensory neurons and motor neurons called interneurons, these sensory cells can have effects on muscle movement and function as well. During a session, hundreds of neural receptors are activated, thereby affecting all aspects of your current situation.
Moreover, all internal parts of our body from head to toe are encased in fascia and connective tissue, another high-speed full body communication system that can store and process information subconsciously. This is the only system that goes to every cell and every part of your body, which is why working with it through light touch can have such wide ranging effects.
These full body processes explain why something that looks as insufficient as light touch can be so powerful and have extraordinary results on our health and well-being.
But what about my current medical care and doctor?
Restore for Life compliments but does not replace your medical doctor. It can accelerate the pace of recovery from an illness or injury, decreasing your down time because you are now getting everything you need to thrive. This safe non-invasive approach allows the body to heal itself naturally, improving your function on all levels. Don’t worry, It does not interfere with any medical advice or medications.
Is this something I can learn, too?
Yes! Restore is a science and a skill that you can learn. We offer private sessions for children, adults and offer two workshops to empower you, so you can support the natural health and well-being of others or someone in need.
