My work draws from a variety of approaches to
assisting the body, mind, spirit in its ongoing process of integration
and return to wholeness. Bodywork is not just a luxury. I consider
it to be an essential part of our maintenance plans – to take
the time to recharge our overworked beings and truly allow ourselves
to be on the receiving end. The ‘relaxation response’ is definitely
something learned, and the more practice we get – the more easily
we are able to access our innate healing abilities. When we are
relaxed, we are more resilient and better able to cope with what
life hands us. What better health insurance!

 

Therapeutic Bodywork involves a variety of ways to treat
the soft tissues of the body to relieve stress and help alleviate
and prevent pain, discomfort and muscle spasm. As an adjunct
to medical treatment, bodywork may help alleviate the pain and
symptoms of a wide variety of ailments and medical conditions
including: arthritis, asthma and bronchitis, accident injuries,
carpal tunnel syndrome, cancer related malaise, circulatory problems,
depression, digestive disorders, headache, insomnia, myofascial
pain, sinusitis, sports injuries, temporomandibular joint dysfunction
(TMD), whiplash, and on.

relaxation and rejuvenation and/or want to address specific areas
of imbalance, tension or injury. The following therapies are available:

“Peace and joy is our goal. Whatever we do, we are doing it for that. Not everyone believes in a God. But the real God, the absolute God, the cosmic god who is being searched for by one and all, is that peace and joy.

H.H. Sri Swami Satchidananda

Massage feels
wonderful
and it’s been shown to:

– Reduce heart rate

– Lower blood pressure

– Increase blood circulation
and the flow of lymph

– Relax muscles

– Improve range of motion

– Increase endorphins,
one of the body’s
natural painkillers
