Specialized in CranioSacral and Visceral Manipulation Therapies, Sylvia Boyed has extensive experience and knowledge in her fields. Combining these two modalities has helped her stand out in the industry of holistic wellness and massage therapy.
There are many forms of energy work available in our community. Some of the most familiar are Reiki and the use of the Chakra system. What distinguishes my work from these other methods is an organic process of restructuring the body, combining both the physical and emotional body fields of the client’s energetic system and my own. I am able to diffuse and remove the deepest layers of constriction of the body and effectively alter the various organs and systems, where they are compromised. An excess of scar tissue, regenerated within the body, often constricts and compresses the spine and viscera at the deepest levels of the body. When these regions are opened and expanded, the whole of the body changes and acquires greater freedom of movement, circulation, and function. Therefore, my practice, I consider a very functional energetic form of medicine.
There are also levels of consciousness which can only be penetrated through the visceral and fluid regions of the body mind. Over the last ten years of practice, I‘ve observed people‘s lives shift and become more integral as their bodies and spirits heal. I offer a way to heal for those who are seeking not just relief from pain physically, but also for those who may be on a new threshold of discovering who they are.
I offer years of experience in teaching and counseling and I believe this is a great strength I can offer the individual engaged at this depth of commitment to their overall well-being. My experience as a therapist is always one of awe and wonder. I believe there is a science to my work, also profound mystery.
