My training is to recognize in a person’s body where forces are pulling tissues too short creating compression or where tissues are over-stretched, tight, and weak.
My passion is to help get people out of pain and to feel more at-home in their body.
I use and teach Myo-Fascial Release and Structural Deep-Tissue Massage to open the layers of restriction in areas that are pulled tight. This can be due to old injuries and scar tissue, adhesions, or a lifetime of compensating forces from being slightly off-balanced.
For tissues that are over-stretched and tight, I bring fresh blood to these areas by releasing local adhesions and moving the tissues directionally back to where they belong. Then I prescribe Focused Yoga Exercises that will strengthen the weaker muscles training them how to keep the areas worked during Bodywork open.
Opening the breath and relaxing the nervous system are integral to structural bodywork and getting out of pain. Emotional Tension has sufficient power to affect our posture and can be the underpinning of much of our physical tension.
I use Cranio-Sacral work in combination with Structural Bodywork to address both the Emotional and Bio-Mechanical patterns of tension in the dural system, musculo-connective tissue system, bones, and respiratory-circulatory systems.
My goal is to help make people’s body a more comfortable and balanced place, so they are pain-free and empowered to do and experience more with their life.
