Massage Therapy is a science, a healing art, and for many individuals, a great way to support their efforts to take care of themselves. It's especially effective combined with fitness programs, dance, yoga, chiropractic, physical therapy and acupuncture/pressure. My massage techniques include deep tissue, neurokinetic, neuromuscular, myofascial and orthopedic methods. I'm also certified in oncology and pediatric massage.
Biodynamic craniosacral therapy, a new offering as of June 2018, is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that uses specific hands-on methods of tuning into deep primary rhythms in the body. This therapy can be profoundly relaxing physically and mentally and helps to regulate the nervous system, reduce stress and pain, and improve overall healing.
Massage or Craniosacral? While regular massage can be essential for meeting the needs of the musculoskeletal system for pressure and release, biodynamic craniosacral addresses a primary, holistic level to help your body access its own primary, essential health. The cranium, spine and sacrum make up a core, vital highway for our autonomic nervous system and yet craniosacral therapy can be applied at many places on the body. During craniosacral work, the client remains clothed.
Whether you choose massage or craniosacral treatments, we will work together to meet your goals. Repetitive strains, vigorous workouts, traumatic injuries or accidents, and numerous health conditions can benefit from one or both of these therapies.
A further note on biodynamic craniosacral therapy:
This healing modality is excellent for PTSD, migraines, concussions, post-surgery recovery, neurological disorders, anxiety reduction and general pain reduction.
Thank you to the dozens of clients who participated in my training by receiving practice sessions from me throughout my 20-month program.
