Gloria J Garrett - Expert Massage & CranioSacral Therapist on Maui
I've been a Licensed Massage Therapist practicing in the State of Hawaii since 1996. After 22 years of training with other like-minded experts, I've learned to share my experience through a combination of service and education. I attended the Maui Academy of Healing Arts in 1994 & then went on to work at the Four Seasons Wailea Spa. I continue my independent status with the Wailea hotels as a private practitioner. I am passionate about my work & as such I attended & continue to attend many expert workshops to hone my treatment of injuries skills. I have an alternative approach from most therapists in that I use techniques like CranioSacral (very subtle osteopathic energy work) to extremely deep tissue & myofascial release work to treat the whole person in body/mind/spirit in the most transformative way possible.

CranioSacral Therapy and Somato Emotional Release - Subtle and Powerful Osteopathic Release Work
I first experienced CranioSacral therapy after being rear-ended by another car. CST & SER were the only treatments that cleared out the trauma from the accident & healed my whiplash pain. I have attended over 10 CranioSacral & SER workshops led by the best teachers in the world. As a result I am the most experienced CranioSacral Therapist on Maui and the only practitioner of Somato Emotional Release Therapy. I've also taught beginning CranioSacral Therapy here on Maui. CranioSacral work is magical if your body is still holding pain from a traumatic experience in life such as car accident, a fall, sports injury to head or any other part of the body. When there is an emotional component to the trauma, the Somato Emotional Release (advanced CranioSacral) work is so powerful in clearing out the pain & trauma from the cells. Studies have found that each individual cell has its own memory of pain/trauma. These cells must release & re-pattern the pain/emotions etc. for complete healing of body, mind, & spirit.

Visceral Manipulation Therapy - Abdominal Release of Internal Organ Restrictions
VM (The Missing Link) is so important for those experiencing acute & chronic back/hip & neck pain as well as IBS, Gastric Reflux, digestive & feminine problems. Your internal organs have ligaments that attach inside the abdominal wall. The abdominal wall attaches inside the body to the spinal column. Internal scar tissue, adhesions, & restrictions cause you pain & dys-comfort, dys-function, & ultimately dys-ease. I am trained to assess & release those restrictions allowing your body to heal itself & function optimally. Releasing these restrictions often is the missing link to eliminating your pain.
Lymphatic Drainage - Boost Your Immune System
Lymphatic Drainage is an excellent massage for anyone trying to improve their immune system or who have chronic inflammation or edema. Lymphatic drainage is also beneficial to those with auto-immune diseases and it is the most recommended treatment for cancer survivors along with CranioSacral. The feather-like massage strokes improve the flow of the lymphatic system by removing blockages & allowing the backed up lymph fluid to flow freely thereby reducing inflammation & decreasing pain.
