Our bodies have an innate ability to heal themselves, given the right support. The services I provide should be part of your overall wellness strategy, one component in a multidimensional approach to wellness, which may include supplements or natural products, dietary, fitness or lifestyle strategies or professional services to address emotional, spiritual or physical imbalances.
Through the services below and other techniques, I can help you find physical relief. If you are looking for another type of practitioner, see my list of recommended providers.
Bowenwork is a gentle and effective manual therapy that balances tension patterns in the body, resulting in deep relaxation and relief of old injuries and pain. It affects not only the musculoskeletal framework, but also the fascia, nerves, and internal organs. The body’s integrated response to Bowenwork improves circulation and lymphatic drainage. It also enhances the assimilation of nutrients and the elimination of toxins from the body. Bowenwork is appropriate for all people, newborns to the elderly and everyone in between. It is the ideal service for people dealing with any chronic or acute injury, physical issue or discomfort and is shown to speed recovery and assist the body in regaining balance and experiencing relief. Bowenwork is best with an initial series of 3-5 sessions. * Free Bowenwork is always available to new babies, when mama receives any type of session.
Every bodywork session is different. The needs of an elite athlete, a pregnant or postpartum mama, an office or factory worker or a person recovering from an injury or surgery are all different. Every session is customized to your unique needs and preferences. Each session includes an element of bodywork or energy work derived from various modalities including shiatsu, reflexology, structural and fascial release and essential oils treatments. If you are new to bodywork or uncertain what you want or need, I will listen to your current goals and concerns and assess your postural and movement patterns and customize the session to best address your needs. Body Restoration is one of the most enjoyable ways to care for your body. Book your session today!
30 minute, 60 minute and 90 minute sessions are available. The use of select essential oils is included, but add ons such as heat therapy or full essential oil treatments are available for an additional charge.
Postural Exercise is based on the principals of bio-mechanics and physics and is designed to re-establish proper structure and balance to the body. In a healthy body, each joint should be aligned or stacked above the next creating proper load bearing. This is important in allowing the body to move efficiently, without pain, discomfort, limitations or compensations. In a body out of balance, certain compensations are created where some muscles are overactive – becoming very tight and stiff, while other muscles which should be working become under active, and very weak. Lifestyle, work, the stress of pregnancy and even regular exercise can perpetuate pain and postural misalignments. This postural work not only corrects deviations, but can help with other fitness and weight loss goals by stretching, strengthening and helping inactive muscles become active again so you use more of the correct muscles in every movement.
I recommend using corrective exercises as a home care tool in conjunction with bodywork services for true body restoration. The first session includes a postural assessment, where I view and chart out your posture. I use this information to create a program of gentle exercises and stretches, for you to do at home. I then teach you the program, usually in a separate session. It is recommended that you update your exercises every 2-4 weeks, until you achieve your goals. We work to correct, then strengthen the body. I have seen the fastest, most lasting improvements achieved from combining Postural Work with Bowenwork (neurological release of muscle tension).
Essential oil treatments are a targeted strategy to address specific wellness concerns. There are a number of treatments to enjoy, including the following:
Physical Aromatic Touch
The Physical Aromatic Touch uses 7 oils to target each system of the body. We initially perform a pain and range of motion assessment, then apply one drop of the first oil on the feet. We repeat the assessment and application of oil to the feet for all 7 oils. Select oils are then applied to your back, following a moist heat pack. This assessment can help determine which systems of your body will benefit most from these essential oils and the treatment often leads to immediate relief and deep relaxation.
Emotional Aromatic Touch
The Emotional Aromatic Touch uses 7 oils blended to match the vibrational frequency of each chakra. In this amazing treatment, you lose yourself in beautifully composed music that matches the vibrational frequency of each chakra, while the oil for that chakra is gently applied to your back. People experiencing this treatment have reported feeling deep emotional or even spiritual relief and relaxation, as well as noticing physical relief.
The same 7 emotional oils are applied to your hands in a specific location. Listening to chakra music is a wonderful complement here, but not necessary. This is a wonderful self-care technique to use at home, as needed.
