Tailoring Your Bodywork Experience to Suit Your Needs.

Every person is different, every body is different -- and everyone deserves to be treated individually.   That is why I tailor each massage or bodywork session to the particular needs of each client ...  as they are on the day of their session.  I work with my clients - I don't do my work to them.

I offer Massage, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Zero Balancing, some OrthoBionomy, and Reiki services.  Learn more about these services at http://cooperative-healing.com.  To book an appointment, you may cho... more

Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Craniosacral Therapy
I recently began working with an elderly gentleman, in his home. Before I began seeing him, he was on a lot of pain medication, and still complained regularly of pain, often crying out. He had seen a few massage therapists, at least one of whom actually continued her treatment without modification even though he was crying out in more pain. He was taking so much pain medication that it was affecting his lucidity, and he was doing less, remembering less, and understanding less each day. I worked with him using a combination of CranioSacral Therapy and massage. He immediately noticed a reduction in pain that lasted longer each session. Very soon, they were able to reduce his pain medication levels. His lucidity returned, and he began conversing, and even playing games of bridge again. After a time, I noticed signs of sleep apnea in a session - and they reduced his pain medication yet again. Continued therapy is allowing him to sleep well, be comfortable most of the time, and enjoy the times when he is with his children again. I love my job.

Helen is a very talented massage therapist and quite able to tune her bodywork to the needs of the client. When I leave her sessions I am always moving better and in a better state of mind.

I feel that we have a very similar belief in the "energy" that we humans possess and channel. Call it Ki, call it Chi, call it Zero-Point energy. The commonality is that it/He is the "I am" . . . the source from which all things had their beginning. :-)
