For nearly 20 years I have been helping people to correct their posture through various soft tissue therapies.
My specialty in bodywork includes Neuromuscular Therapy and Trigger Point Therapy as well as myofascial release. Recently I have added Energy Chelation/Balancing along with the use of Essential Oils and Raindrop Therapy.
Bringing the musculoskeletal system into balance will reduce and eliminate pain, restore proper gait and weight distribution. This will give the client a sense of well being that affects not only the physical body but the mental and emotional bodies as well since they are all connected. We are not just physical beings. We are energy beings as well. Eastern medicine has recognized this for over 5000 years.
Usually in just a few visits you will see changes in the way you feel. Other more complicated scenario's will take longer.
Much of the success you will achieve is from your participation in the process and the willingness to accept change in your life. Its not mysterious or complicated. Its a very simple and down to earth approach.
I am a Certified Massage Therapist and a trained Neuromuscular Therapist. I have studied Travell and Simmons Trigger Point work and have been schooled in Energy Work by the Healing Touch Program and Eden Energy Medicine. I also practice the principles of Barbra Brennan Therapeutic Healing.
I offer free consultations about my practice so you may better understand how all of these modalities blend together.
Have you ever noticed that your body is always speaking to you? How often do you listen? Do you blame your painful hip problem on a demanding job or “just getting old”? How about that painful hip problem, stiff shoulder or neck? Do you attribute it to an old fall or a car accident? Many physical problems occur because the body “holds on" to the pain or stiffness or limited range of movement. But why is your body is really holding on? More and more we are discovering that it is more than just the physical response to a trauma or repetitive use injury. This pain often represents something more.
If you ever had a massage, recall how you felt afterward. When you got up from the massage table didn’t you feel straighter, taller, totally relaxed? That general sense of well-being isn’t just from having your massage. Massage also affects your feelings and emotions because they are all intimately connected.
Most doctors and therapists believe that every emotion you experience and every muscle in your body is intertwined. So the pain in a specific area is often related to a particular emotional experience. If you could observe yourself from afar, you would see how your feelings and emotions affect your body posture and the overall message that you send to others. We all observe this in others, if we take the time to really “see” them. Can you tell if someone is happy, sad, angry, depressed….one look can say it all.
Louise Hay in her book “You Can Heal Your Life” also discusses the metaphysical aspects of the mind and body. Hips, she writes, represent decisions in life; especially decisions about moving forward, being stuck, unable to make a decision or seeing clearly what is to be done next. The solar plexus is said to be the seat of the ego, signifying the conflicts in your life…. whereas pain or discomfort in the diaphragm denotes unresolved conflict.
You are more than just flesh and blood. There is an energy component to healing that is part of my massage process with my clients. Real healing comes from your heart and mind. The body is just a place where your feelings and beliefs can manifest, either positively or problematically. When your body doesn’t heal, it is frequently because mentally and emotionally you are stuck and the body can’t release what you are unable to let go. My energy work and massage create the opportunity to release those unresolved issues and allow your body to heal. This all happens silently, without effort, in a safe and nurturing environment.
