Integrative Bodywork

 With each client, I create a uniquely personalized massage by weaving together various modalities such as neuromuscular therapy, reflexology, shiatsu, myofascial release, energy healing and more.  Intuitively, I feel and offer what each individual needs. 

 

The mind, body, and spirit are intrinsically wired to communicate with one another and I work with my clients to support them in "inner-standing" and listening to their bodies innate wisdom in order to cultivate balance and harmony. 

Reflexology, with ties to China, Egypt, and India is an ancient modality with unknown origins. Like the macrocosm/microcosm relationship that flows through all aspects of the universe, the feet, hands and ears contain maps of the entire human body and all of its functions. Applying specific pressure to areas of these maps stimulates the corresponding areas, organs, and meridians of the body to heal ailments, release tension, and clear any blocks; allowing for Qi (life-force energy; pronounced chee) to move freely.

Shiatsu, commonly known as a Japanese therapy, has roots in ancient Chinese philosophy.  With the same "inner-standing" of the macrocosm/microcosm relationship, Shiatsu brings about healing and balance throughout the body. By stretching and applying deep, specific pressure to the meridian lines within the body stagnant energy is released which in turn stimulates the flow of Qi. Shiatsu provides deep release within the physical body and a sense of rejuvenation of the energetic body.

Neuromuscular Therapy is a newer, specialized form of massage therapy that targets chronic pain and issues within the musculoskeletal system by applying deep, direct pressure and friction to trigger points and other problem areas throughout the body. Paired with strengthening and stretching exercises, potential shifts in posture and changing of habits, chronic issues can be treated. For severe or chronic issues, NM therapy generally takes a commitment of a few sessions to see improvement.
