Regardless of your reason for seeking physical bodywork, my first intent is to open a responsive dialogue with your body through touch and mechanical manipulation. With my approach, body therapy becomes a physical dialogue with your body. While bodywork may “fix” an issue, the intention is never to fix, but rather to bring you to a context of freedom, by creating space for healing to continue.
If there is an acute issue, a current injury, pre or post surgery, or, pain relief during rehab, your session will be focused, and may not include a whole body treatment as the compromised body area may take the whole session to address.
Chronic issues, on-going and long lasting, require multiple approaches as well as varying frequency. Generally, it may take 4 - 6 sessions to achieve sustainable reactions. Relief from chronic issues usually lasts for a period of time. To experience lasting results in some chronic cases, you would need to find a massage and bodywork maintenance schedule and incorporate self-care exercises to use between appointments. (To assist budgeting multiple sessions, scheduled closer together, I suggest you consider, Therapeutic Thirty, 30 minutes concentrated therapy.)
^ Sessions are a partnered experience. Feedback may be asked for and is assuredly welcomed during your session. Active participation may be used throughout a session, if it serves to assist hands-on techniques and neural resets through resistive movements. Participation is not taxing, as everything attends communication with your body, through stimulation of neuro (nervous), myo (muscle), and fascial (connective tissue) systems.
^ Sessions may be performed clothed, unclothed, or a combination. Please wear or provide loose-fitting attire, yoga or gym wear. Your comfort is of utmost importance.
^ Please bring or wear socks as feet get cold when body temps fluctuate during bodywork.
^ If coming from workout, please shower first.
^ Arrive on time so your appointment is not rushed.
^ Please try to give ample notice when canceling so your time can be rescheduled.
^ Cancellations within 24 hours will be charged the full rate.
