The interweaving of different methods of healing is like having an exquisite toolbox that when used together create an integrated whole.

The beauty of my work is that any of the following modalities can be done independently, or interwoven, in any combination, to fit your individual needs:

The beauty of my work is that any of these modalities can be done independently, or interwoven, in any combination, to fit your individual needs.

Rolfing® Structural Integration

Rolfing is a non-intrusive sequence of direct manipulation and somatic education for your body, designed to release patterns of accumulated stress and chronic or acute pain. It works with the fascia, a type of connective tissue, which seamlessly surrounds and encapsulates the muscles and all the other structures of your body, from bone to blood vessel, from organ to nerve tract. Rolfers call it “the organ of form”, as it literally creates and holds your form, inside and out. In virtually all of us, the fascia has tightened up and hardened to some degree, or has suffered outright damage. Any of these situations can create constriction, scar tissue and adhesions in the fascia, pulling us out of alignment and inhibiting freedom of movement and breath. This generally means stiffness and pain, and can create a feeling of malaise and fatigue. The sessions I offer serve to “unglue” the fascia, to unwind, reorganize and balance your body into an integrated whole. This equals a reduction of, or complete recovery from pain, allowing for the lasting restoration of ease, fluidity and efficiency; and generally improves your energy as well as your overall level of health.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy®

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy provides a gentle touch that encourages and facilitates our self-healing intelligence. The craniosacral system is a fluid and subtle energy phenomenon that exists in and around the body. It can be felt as a pervasive rhythmic and wavelike movement. It is most easily discerned in the subtle pulsation of the cerebro-spinal fluid, a fluid which moves along the spinal cord from the skull (cranium) to the base of the spine (sacrum) and circulates in the fluids of the entire body. The unobstructed current of this fluid is an important contributor to overall vitality, health and well-being. Unimpeded, this dynamic movement cleanses and nourishes the spinal cord and nervous system, and allows the whole body, indeed, the whole spirit, to "breathe". Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy focuses on the underlying forces that govern this intrinsic movement. In this work, gentle touch encourages and facilitates that which is our birthright: the free flow of the movement and energy of the inherently interconnected, self-regulating and self-healing Intelligence that is who we are. The unobstructed current of this energy is a very important contributor to our over-all health, vitality and well-being, and often sets the stage for a more personal exploration into a more expansive expression of our lives.

Energy Healing

Energy healing works with the lovely layering of the many different densities of energy that define who we are. Simply put, these include (but are not limited to) the physical, emotional, mental, energetic and etheric bodies. None of these bodies, although they are apparently disparate, exist apart from one another. They each and all affect and are affected by the others. The most obviously “dense” phenomenon is our physical body, and our physical universe: "my foot”, “that tree”. As we move through the emotional and mental bodies (“I feel happy/sad today”, “how do trees grow?") our experience of ourselves and our world begins to expand. This expansion continues as we explore the more refined energy of our etheric body. Our individual energy body is the matrix which holds the physical, emotional, mental and etheric bodies in cohesion, and seamlessly connects them with Spirit. The kind of energy healing that I do works through all the density… and lightness… that is you to bring you into a vibrant place of health. It clears and integrates. It helps to create a deep, fulfilling and very personal relationship with Spirit, with Life Itself, which sustains and connects us all. As our energy becomes more and more robust, we develop a sense of well-being on every level. Our consciousness can expand far beyond who we think we are, into that place where we know ourselves to be truly infinite beings with unlimited resource.

Visceral (Internal Organ) Massage and Integration

Visceral work focuses on releasing the tensional patterns of the internal organs of the body. The interrelationship of a healthy structure and the optimal function of the internal organs cannot be underestimated. Many of my clients, during or after the basic Rolfing series, opt for visceral work to further release the intrinsic structures of the body. This gentle work can profoundly enhance the structural benefits of the original work as well as promoting a new level of health to the organs themselves. The overall result is a noticeably higher level of health and vitality, and a new and deeper feeling of internal awareness and ease.
