Massage

Massage is a good choice for maintaining a nurturing relationship with your body. Choose massage for reducing stress, treating general aches and pains, and recovering from strenuous workouts. Massage is also an appropriate choice if you are dealing with a short-term problem like tendonitis or whiplash. Practitioners: Bevin and Jennifer

Structural Integration

Structural Integration and Rolf Movement (SI) provide a chance to methodically explore where the relationship of body and self might be stuck. SI addresses patterns of strain and imbalance through the connective tissue of the body, seeking lift where there is drag and adaptability over fixation. If you have chronic pain or discomfort, this series-based inquiry may give you better insight into how to care for yourself as a physical being in the pull of Earth’s gravity. Practitioners: Bevin

Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a process of listening to our physiological cues and honoring the organic intelligence of the body. Some chronic tension and pain won’t respond to simple tissue manipulation. By attending to the nervous system, SE can offer relief for physical and emotional trauma, subtle and explicit wounds. It is both a standalone and complementary technique, offering healing on its own or blended with other forms of bodywork. Practitioners: Bevin

Neuromyofascial

Neuromyofascial techniques affect the nervous system by targeting the fascial net - connective tissue that surrounds every organ and muscle in the body. Fascia contains six times the sensory nerves as red muscle tissue and is highly responsive to gentle pressure, which allows for deeper work without the pain associated with traditional “deep tissue” massage. Loading (applying pressure) into the tissue allows restrictions to shift, unwind, and release resulting in greater range of motion, decreased pain, and less stiffness. Clients feel more freedom of movement and spaciousness in their bodies during and after the treatment. Practitioners: Jennifer

Cupping

Cupping is a vacuum pressure massage using silicone cups to soften muscles and lift connective tissue, reducing adhesions, inflammation and relieving muscle tension. Cupping increases local blood flow and aids the body in eliminating metabolic waste by opening the lymphatic pathways. Cups can be applied on major muscle groups and left still while other areas of the body are treated (static cupping) or can be kept moving over the skin (dynamic cupping). This service is not suitable for those on blood thinners, those who have difficulty with bleeding or clotting, open wounds, or very sensitive or thin skin. Practitioners: Jennifer

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Using the Vodder Technique, manual soft tissue mobilization is applied to affected areas of the body along the lymphatic drainage pathways. Designed to open the lymph vessels for the purpose of draining excess fluid due to swelling (edema), this method uses a light touch (just enough to stretch the skin) and no emollient. A series of MLD treatments effectively reduces traumatic and post-surgical edema (swelling). Just one session can provide relief of symptoms from migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), stress, fatigue, and more. MLD is a very soothing technique that also induces general relaxation. Practitioners: Jennifer
