Movement and Massage Therapy Sessions
Every body is different. We human beings are ruthlessly unique in both form and perception, and we flow through very different circumstances in our lives. We meet a wide array of demands each day, and we replenish ourselves in different ways. We hurt in different places, we yearn for different things, and there is just no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to the body. My job is to help you explore and better utilize your own unique structure through movement and massage therapy so that you can do whatever it is you love empowered by a greater sense of connectedness and ease. My ultimate goal is to teach you to consciously care for yourself, so that I am only needed for maintenance and the occasional tune up.
Your private sessions will include a customized blend of:
- Therapeutic Massage: Sometimes you literally need a hand to notice and release deeply engrained patterns of stress and strain. A variety of modalities including Swedish massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and neuromuscular techniques can enhance your proprioception (your physical sense of self), reduce pain, soothe a frazzled system and help your body to activate its own innate healing mechanisms.
Self Myofascial Release: Roll Model Method ® therapy balls empower you with simple, effective, portable, practical, self-massage tools which achieve an intuitively appropriate pressure and pace that any massage therapist would be challenged to replicate. These techniques can help to lessen pain, improve mobility and reduce your risk of non-traumatic injury.
Decompressing Breath Techniques: This hybrid of intentional breath-work modalities can help you to decompress from the inside out. Using the movement of the breath to intentionally manipulate the pressures and tensions of the core can improve your ability to sense and release excess tension and improve your reflexive core stability. This helps keep your spine more supported as you go about each day. These techniques can also be used to strategically down-regulate over active sympathetic stress responses in the body.
Conscious Relaxation: In conjunction with intentional mindset and breathing practices, purposeful postures allow you to gently explore your alignment in a variety of passively supportive positions. This can help you to sense lines of excess myofascial tension held within the body, which better enables you to consciously release these unconscious holding patterns. This process of dialing down the sympathetic nervous system response and turning on the parasympathetic recovery responses helps to stimulate the body’s natural systems of healing and repair, and can create a profound sense of lightness and peace.
Restorative Movement: Effective assessment helps us notice and address movement patterns and habits that contribute to weakness, chronic tension, inflammation and pain in the body. The FMS® system alerts us to risk of injury within the functional movements necessary to participate fully in daily life. This helps us figure out where to begin and how to monitor our progress over time. Yoga Tune Up® fitness therapy training helps to evaluate and bring balance to the soft tissues of your body that can be quietly aggrieved by unconscious overuse, underuse, misuse, and abuse.
