I specialize in Myofascial Release, which is a type of bodywork that uses sustained, gentle pressure to easily and effectively release restrictions in the connective tissue. This modality was developed by John F. Barnes and is widely used for effective soft tissue release and injury rehabilitation.
A different experience than your typical spa massage, much of your session may be done without lotion or oils. I will be sinking gently into the tissue to assess areas of restriction and tightness in the fascia, and using sustained pressure to gently and effectively soften and release areas of tightness. While at times it can be intense, the work should never be painful; and many clients find their session to be profoundly relaxing.
We may also use other bodywork modalities such as Trigger Point and Deep Tissue work to effectively release the body’s holding patterns and tension. In addition, your session may include gentle breathwork, and supporting practices drawn from Feldenkrais® and Somatic Experiencing® to bring greater balance and regulation to your nervous system and overall well being.
Our work together happens on a few levels:
- releasing restrictions in the connective tissue and tension in the muscles
- softening of the unconscious & habitual patterns of tension, release of “frozen” energy, and greater regulation of nervous system functioning
- heightening awareness and aliveness through the whole body
- retraining the body & mind in new patterns of movement, awareness, deep relaxation, and well-being.
Ultimately, these tools are all about reconnecting you to yourself- finding and allowing the vibrational resonance of the body you want to have, and connecting with your deeper guidance and inner wisdom.
