Kitty Bearden, master aesthetician and massage therapist, recently participated in the CranioSacral Therapy II workshop offered at Esalen Institute by The Upledger Institute Inc., an innovative health care organization that offers continuing education courses to medical professionals worldwide.

Cranio-sacral therapy is used to detect and correct cranio-sacral system imbalances, which may be the cause of sensory, motor or neurological dysfunction. The cranio-sacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

The therapy has been successfully used to treat headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ, chronic fatigue, motor coordination difficulties, eye problems and central nervous system disorders.

For more information on cranio-sacral therapy, massage therapy or advanced skincare, please contact Kitty at 927-4372 or 379-2536.

There will be an open house hosted by Northway Construction Inc., which wants people to have a chance to view a custom home currently under construction in the Ironbridge subdivision that was awarded a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.

The open house will be on Thursday, July 23, from 4-6 p.m. in the Ironbridge subdivision, 416 River Bank Lane, south of Glenwood Springs.

LEED certification is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability. Achieving LEED certification shows that the building project is truly “green.”

The LEED rating system offers four certification levels for new construction: certified, silver, gold and platinum. Northway Construction’s Ironbridge Subdivision Project is in the preliminary gold certification under the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and LEED for homes. Northway Construction aims to reduce the use of fossil fuel consumption and to ensure a healthier living environment. The USGBC has assured that Northway Construction is conducting a project that corresponds to the number of credits accrued in the five green design categories, which include: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources and indoor environmental quality.
