Massage Techniques


Movement education and deep-tissue bodywork are the major components of Hellerwork, named for founder Joseph Heller. Emphasizing vertical realignment of the body and release of chronic stress and tension, Hellerwork involves eleven sessions: in each session, one hour is devoted to bodywork and thirty minutes to movement therapy. Additionally, the therapist uses verbal dialogue to explore emotional factors that may be contributing to tension in the clients physical make-up. As a preventative technique, the goal of Hellerwork is to produce permanent, corrective change in alignment and movement. Click here to find a Hellerwork practitioner.
