What have you locked in your body?
Have you gone from massage therapist to massage therapist and still haven't gotten the results you know are possible?
Are you a workaholic with chronic back pain? Do you spend the majority of your day at the desk, hunched over, not breathing deeply? Do you put way too much pressure on yourself and you’re stressed? Is that any way to live sustainably for the longterm? What if massage, bodywork and self care is a necessity not a luxury at this point in your life?
I have a fascination with fascia and bodies and how they move-or rather lack of movement.
Fascia is the connective tissue glue that surrounds and encompasses every nerve, artery, vein, muscle, organ and gland in the body. This connective tissue is so adaptive, it takes on whatever position your body is in all day. It is continuous from your forehead to your toes like a big interconnected cobweb. How many people are slouched over a desk not breathing most of the day so the fascia gels them into that hunched over slouched position. Fascia has 6x the amount of nerve endings so it accounts for a large portion of the tension and pain we perceive. Coincidentally this fascial tension doesn’t show up on MRI’s or ultrasounds, so western medicine can’t see a lot of the pain you are in. Compensation makes muscles adhere where they shouldn’t and dries out the fascia, gluing it down and adhering it in places where there should be movement. We are dynamic creatures therefore our tissues should always be moving or we become stagnant and end up creating pain or disease.
I work with people who struggle with pain, muscle tension, recurring injuries and stiffness, so I offer sessions that are a combination of massage therapy, body unwinding, osteopathic techniques, myofascial release, visceral manipulation, craniosacral, stretching and homecare recommendations to ensure you get the most out of our sessions together and you thrive moving forward in every way.
My bodywork treatments will help reduce pain, stress, help digestion and immune function, increase range of motion, flexibility and oxygen levels-therefore contributing to every system in your body.
