Two Hands for Bodywork
Bodywork has significant meaning because it distinguishes therapeutic techniques from relaxation Swedish/spa massage. Spa massage is wonderful and constructive. Especially in a culture so focused on mental prowess and perseverance. The work I do uses the same quality of relaxed presence to engage constructive healing with a more specific and focused outcome. Using fifteen years of structural integration knowledge I can recognize the holding pattern of the body and then support it to unwind the tension being held. My technique is methodical and reliable which allows you to relax into the process and just experience an inspired and creative healing process. A client's description of my work almost always includes some quality of 'this indescribable work'.
Clients benefiting from this work are; maturing athletes, active seniors, or someone who has a chronic (long term) pain. This is usually because they are looking to recover mobility and resilience as part of their healing. This involves integration of the whole body in the healing process. So often diagnostics are compartmentalized and missing the comprehensive overview.
My best clients are people who enjoy life, play hard and seek ways to take care of themselves so that they can continue. From collegiate athletes and senior olympians to nursing mothers and very active grandmothers. My clients feel relaxed during massage because they feel attended to. From this relaxed place they are able to explore the creative and powerful healing capacity their own body has when it is supported and listened to. I have helped 65 year old men run their first marathon with their son. A grandmother relieve back pain from a brilliant career as an ER nurse so she can play with her grandchildren two days a week and hike with her husband in mountains to birdwatch. What is your goal? I'm curious to know....
