Philosophy on Healing: I help clients (re)open themselves to life by opening the body and helping them to identify restrictive patterns that may be held in their bodies. My intention is to first offer relaxation so that the body becomes receptive to the techniques I use, which include myofascial release, Swedish massage, and elements of craniosacral therapy. I apply slow, even strokes which contact the fascia, an incredible web of connective tissue which encapsulates every muscle in the body. By warming and replenishing the fascial web, muscular restrictions can be released more easily, and you walk away feeling more freedom within your body. Increased blood flow to nourish the systems of the body, improved posture, and a greater sense of openness & wellbeing are only some of the amazing benefits of this work.
Exceptional Results: I particularly love working with clients who utilize computers for their jobs. Releasing tension in the neck, shoulders, and back has become a great joy for me as so many people suffer from the stress held in these areas of the body from desk and computer-related postures. Relaxing the shoulders and opening the chest allows people to feel immediate relief, and over time this focused work begins to bring the body back into its natural alignment.
I have helped many people reduce and resolve the symptoms related to “computer posture”, including some of the more severe manifestations such as pain and numbness down the arm, as well as headaches and chronic neck pain. Offering people the space to find deep relaxation and to provide a new sense of openness and freedom in their bodies is one of the greatest rewards of this work.
