MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY
Myofascial Release is a therapy that addresses restrictions and imbalances of the various connective tissues in the body. It works to promote radiant health & vitality by decreasing or eliminating pain and restoring fuller range of movement. It is a quiet, non-invasive, non-harming modality that works in partnership with the client. This modality can release the Fascia so that every other modality you choose, can be even more effective.
Benefits can include:
- Reduced pain and tightness
- Improved posture
- Greater flexibility & ease of movement
- Decreased stress & tension
- Improved energy level
- Better balance and body awareness
I work with the unique approach of John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release.
HAWAIIAN LOMILOMI MASSAGE – 1 hour
Lomilomi is a gentle, graceful, rhythmic massage. The Hawaiians look at things in terms of energy flow – following the notion that an idea or belief can block energy flow as much as muscle tension can. Lomilomi helps release the blockages, while at the same time giving the energy new direction. It uses long continuous, flowing strokes, combined with a very loving touch, which relaxes the entire being, assisting in a letting go of old beliefs, patterns and behaviours that cause limitations which are stored in the cells of your body. Lomilomi is a unique physical experience which facilitates healing on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels. It’s a wonderful alternative to deep therapeutic massage.
FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY™ – LEVEL II – 1 hour
Fascial Stretch Therapy™ is a table-based, facilitated stretching system for the entire body. It is a complementary modality to all other training, workout systems and forms of bodywork. We use assisted stretching to work the fascia (connective tissue) of the body and optimize the range of movement available through the joint capsules working in sync with the breath and the body.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE – 1 hour
Thai Massage is an ancient form of body therapy dating back 2500 years. It gently stretches and opens the body by incorporating yoga, shiatsu and acupressure along with techniques of gentle rocking, pressing, kneading, stretching & compression. You will be placed in a series of yoga postures while receiving pressure point massage. It works primarily on your legs, back, neck & shoulders. Thai Massage encourages the body to heal itself by releasing muscle tension, increasing flexibility and circulation and stimulating the release of endorphins.
YOGA ESSENTIALS 1:1
This work is done 1:1 or in very small groups.
An individualized session targets areas of pain, discomfort, injury or concern by linking movement to deep breath work and body awareness. A postural assessment is done and then you are led through basic yoga poses and/or practices including therapeutic essentials to re-align your body into its innate optimal blueprint. A personalized program is outlined – giving you a home practice to motivate your involvement as that is an integral part of your healing.
The body is like a blueprint. Any discomfort, pain or dis-ease in the physiology can usually find a basis in our ancestral genes. This doesn’t substitute for proper medical treatment, but to be used as more of a guide on your journey towards wellness. When issues get locked into our physical bodies, it’s challenging (& sometimes painful) to lean into those issues & feelings in order to heal them. This modality is beneficial, causes no harm and is always aligned with your highest good.
Appointments are by phone only. Client should be in a place where they can process the emotional feelings as they arise during the session, in order to dissipate and heal them as they move through.
I work in the tradition of John Newton and Howard Wills.
