Integrative bodywork is a therapeutic treatment that combines hands-on techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point, deep tissue, acupressure and craniosacral therapy. The primary aim of this work is to create balance and homeostasis for the whole person. Additional goals of a session are to release pain patterns, reduce stress, and harmonize the energy system.
Mental health + massage I have worked in the behavioral health field as a massage + movement therapist for over seven years with a special interest in treating people with eating disorders, anxiety, and trauma. Massage can help people with eating disorders and PTSD by improving body satisfaction and reducing depression + anxiety.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is founded on the belief that the body knows exactly how to heal. CST can help release trapped emotion, trauma and chronic pain. I studied the Upledger method of CST with Dr. Maureen Schwer.
TRE® (tension & trauma releasing exercises) is an innovative series of exercises that helps the body release patterns of muscular tension and stress. I completed my training under Susan Shifman and Nkem Ndefo.
Cupping + Scraping Thai fire cupping, pump cups and scraping therapies are used for helping scar tissue, releasing tight fascia + soft tissue, releasing accumulated waste, dispersing stagnation, and increasing circulation.
