Integrative Bodywork

What could pain-free feel like?
What would it look like to move with ease?

Where there’s pain, is not always where the problem is.

Every body is unique, multifaceted and presents in its own way under its own combination of circumstances. I believe it’s most helpful to approach each person, each body as a whole, supporting the interdependent systems and addressing the culprit of the pain and pattern, not just where the discomfort is felt.

Each session is tailored to your specific needs and what your body is revealing in the moment. Therefore, multiple modalities may be used, depending on what’s needed.

These various manual therapies support the body as a whole while getting anatomically specific and involve a deep listening through my hands to give me a clearer picture and deeper connection to where I can be of most help.

CranioSacral Therapy
Light-touch therapy that evaluates and enhances the functioning of the membranes
and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord and
releases restrictions in the cranial sutures. Helps to improve central nervous system
function, alleviate pain, encourage the body’s ability to self-heal.

Neural Manipulation

* Deep Tissue Massage Therapy and Myofascial Release
More traditional Western modalities sometimes using oil (I use coconut) that address both
the muscle tissue and fascial, or connective tissue systems. Primarily helps to release tension,
restriction and acute or chronic pain in the soft tissue. Enables greater ease in movement and
range of motion, pain reduction, balance and alignment, improved flow of blood and lymph
and stress reduction.

* If a more traditional deep-tissue massage therapy session – without light-touch manual therapy is what your after, that is always an option.

Stretching
When called for, a variety of stretching techniques may be used, including Thai Yoga Massage
and Active Isolated Stretching. Used within the appropriate range to help create soft tissue
length and greater range and movement in joint spaces.

Therapeutic Essential Oils
Essential Oils are the life force, or essence of plants. They can have a profound influence on the
central nervous system such as hormone balancing, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal,
inflammation and pain reduction, mood elevation and enhanced digestion.

Raindrop Technique
Eight therapeutic essential oils which support the immune system,
reduce inflammation and ease musculoskeletal pain are dripped along the spine
and “brushed” with fingertips from pelvis to neck. Supportive for colds
and flu and helpful for chronic and viral conditions or when the body is under stress. 

• Self-care guidance is often included to enable you to be a part of the process.

• Special consideration is given to cushioning and comfort throughout pregnancy and with any physical limitations.
