Healing Therapies with Mona
When we are feeling stressed, tense, anxious, or other negative emotions, our body holds the energy in its tissues, creating pain, tension, illness or general malaise. Releasing tension in the body and restoring proper flow of energy is one of the first steps to healing any issue. It can also help you integrate or process other healing work or treatment you are receiving.
Mona Oakley holds 30 years of nursing experience, and 15 years of providing natural health therapies. Her well-rounded knowledge of illness, anatomy, both conventional and alternative approaches to health are an asset to her naturally soothing, comforting and effective healing touch and the peaceful sanctuary she provides her clients.

An excellent therapy no matter what your lifestyle- active, standing all day, sitting at a desk or sedentary. Reflexology can be effective in helping a sluggish immune system, poor circulation, fatigue and digestive problems and female reproductive issues. This treatment is based on the premise that there are reflex points all over the feet that are connected to and correspond with specific organs, systems and energy zones throughout the body. By stimulating these reflex points with pressure applied by the thumbs and fingers to the feet, the functioning of these organs, systems and energy zones is enhanced. This treatment has both a relaxing and revitalizing effect. The reflexology session includes an antiseptic cleansing of the feet at the start of the treatment, and a light lower leg massage with lotion to finish.

This is a customized blend of Aromatherapy Massage, Reflexology, Craniosacral Therapy (description below), Therapeutic Touch (description below), and meditation to meet your physical, mental and emotional needs. This is an excellent choice for those who have not tried any of these therapies before. This treatment begins with Therapeutic Touch to assess and balance the energy field and the flow of energy in and through the body. This is followed by a general stimulation of all the reflex points of the feet. Craniosacral techniques are then applied along the full length of the spine to facilitate release of fascial tension and encourage relaxation of musculoskeletal structures toward more balanced functional alignment. This treatment is completed with a tension-relieving massage of the neck and head. The immediate effect of the Healing Therapy Blend is usually a sense of lightness, well-being, deep relaxation and improved mobility. Also wonderful for re-alignment of the body post-partum.

Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle, hands-on therapy that can help relieve a wide range of conditions whether physical, mental or emotional. Benefits of this therapy are typically experienced within and following the very first session.
A the core of the craniosacral system is the cerebrospinal fluid enclosed within the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord. This fluid at the centre of the physical body brings vitality to our whole being as well as having important physiological functions. It moves around the system in a rhythmical tide-like motion that is reflected in subtle movement in the membranes, bones, and other structures throughout the body.
Stress, trauma, injury and illness can restrict the craniosacral motion and in time give rise to physical and emotional problems and deplete our vitality. This treatment can be effective in treating most conditions, including back and neck pain, migraines, sinus problems, T.M.J, tinnitus, asthma, functional disorders (digestive, hormonal, nervous, circulatory) as ell as the after effects of injury and illness. It can help with emotional problems such as depression, trauma, anxiety and other stress-related conditions. The immediate effect of this treatment is usually a sense of well-being and calm, clarity and lightness, decreased tension in the whole body and improved mobility.
Included in the Healing Therapy Blend.
Therapeutic Touch is an accepted nursing modality, taught and used in clinical settings all over North America. T.T has been found to alleviate pain, congestion, inflammation, insomnia, general malaise and to promote healing. In a state of health, the life-energy flows freely in a balanced manner, nourishing all organs of the body. In dis-ease, the flow of energy is obstructed and/or depleted. Obstruction in the flow of of life-energy results in a diminished sense of well-being. Therapeutic Touch is an intentionally directed process of energy exchange during which the practitioner uses their hands as a focus to facilitate the healing process. This treatment has a deeply calming and relaxing effect.
