Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Student of Alexander Technique
The Alexander Technique is a way of learning to move mindfully through life. The Alexander process shines a light on inefficient habits of movement and patterns of accumulated tension, which interferes with our innate ability to move easily and according to how we are designed. It’s a simple yet powerful approach that offers the opportunity to take charge of one’s own learning and healing process, because it’s not a series of passive treatments but an active exploration that changes the way one thinks and responds in activity. It produces a skill set that can be applied in every situation. Lessons leave one feeling lighter, freer, and more grounded.
Student of the Feldenkrais Method
The Feldenkrais Method® is a form of somatic education that uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance human functioning. Through this Method, you can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement. These improvements will often generalize to enhance functioning in other aspects of your life. The Feldenkrais Method is based on principles of physics, biomechanics and an empirical understanding of learning and human development. By expanding the self-image through movement sequences that bring attention to the parts of the self that are out of awareness, the Method enables you to include more of yourself in your functioning movements. Students become more aware of their habitual neuromuscular patterns and rigidities and expand options for new ways of moving. By increasing sensitivity the Feldenkrais Method assists you to live your life more fully, efficiently and comfortably.
Student of Healing Touch - Levels 1 & 2
Healing Touch is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Healing Touch is a biofield (magnetic field around the body) therapy that is an energy-based approach to health and healing. Healing Touch uses the gift of touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body, and the energy centers that control the flow from the energy field to the physical body. These non-invasive techniques employ the hands to clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields, thus affecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It is based on a heart-centered, caring relationship in which the practitioner and client come together energetically to facilitate the client's health and healing. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore balance and harmonies in the energy system, placing the client in a position to self heal.
Yoga
Student of Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini yoga derives its name through a focus on awakening kundalini energy through regular practice of meditation, pranayama, chanting mantra and yoga asana. Called by practitioners "the yoga of awareness", it aims "to cultivate the creative spiritual potential of a human to uphold values, speak truth, and focus on the compassion and consciousness needed to serve and heal others."

What a fabulous experience! I rarely have found the time to indulge in a massage at all...so having a 90 minute massage was a real extravagance for me! My friend gave this to me as a holiday gift-and what a gift it was. :) Thank you Ruth for the opportunity to relax and decompress!!!!

I have not seen Ruth since she moved to her present location. She is by far the best masseuse I know. It's a bit of a hike from my location but well worth the extra miles. Ruth's knowledge & compassion is evidenced in her work. My aches, pains, congestion gone the next day. Thank you, Ruth!

Ruth does it all right. She is warm and welcoming, checks in, asking about physical changes or discomforts, and adjusts her massage to meet your needs. Her highest priority is serving YOU in the moment. It is her calling to bring wellness and a sense of being cared for to her clients.

I loved the well kept room. Ruth was personable ,I felt safe and trusted her. Very strong hands, and she really got in there. The only thing is that I would have liked for the room to have been warmer and darker with more of a fragrance to set the atmosphere. A minor adjustment. All in all, a pleasant and worthwhile experience. I definitely would visit her again if I needed a massage.

I came to Ruth with back pain that wouldn't go away. It has been gone for years. Her touch is firm and she is very responsive to any indication I give that something hurts. When she tells me she is doing something that might be painful, I grit my teeth and trust her, because I am always better afterward. There is no question my general health is better since I began having a monthly massage. The room is softly lit, the massage table is warm, the music is calming and the whole experience leaves me feeling massaged inside and out - body, soul and spirit.

Ruth is wonderful. I often have a difficult time relaxing when I get a massage but that is never an issue at her place. The office itself is clean and quiet, not like a spa where there are tons of people coming and going (the building itself is a little dated, but I don't care about that). She give a great massage, really focuses in on areas I need help with. She also uses very nice, high quality products. I highly recommend her.

Once I began going to Ruth for massages I have not gone to anyone else! She makes me feel completely comfortable and seems to find and eliminate all my stress points. Going to Ruth is one of the greatest gifts I give myself. She is always interested in how I am doing and what she can do for me to help bring me back in balance. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Ruth Heyman is a gem. She is extraordinarily present to every massage she gives; her hands always feel focused and intentional with every move she makes. She is not only attentive to what you've asked of her, but also attentive to how your body responds to her touch. I find myself relaxed but alert to her massages, not wanting to miss a moment of the experience. Whether I am with Ruth for 30 minutes or an hour the massage is always varied and deeply relaxing. I would, without any reservations, highly recommend Ruth as a masseuse. Over the years I've had many a massage, but Ruth's massages are, without a doubt, the best of the best.
