A specialized technique of targeting specific organ systems like the liver, kidney, lungs, bowels, heart, lymphatic, circulatory, musculo-skeletal, integumentary (skin) and nervous system (including mental and emotional systems) and draining the cells of their toxic load, which is the symptom expression of an underline imbalance or disease.  This method of healing not only removes toxic waste, but creates room for optimal nutrient delivery, revitalization and healing.  It’s gentle and very powerful.
