Connective Tissue Massage

This is not your standard massage. This is therapeutic bodywork that can have a deep effect on your entire body, as well as your emotional and spiritual well-being. It can feel like a deep, internal, rolling stretch. It is intense, but not painful. Gentle, but highly effective. Connective Tissue Massage is the foundation of Structural Integration and works with your musculoskeletal system to move towards aligning postural imbalances. No lotion is used in this modality. Once you experience this modality, you’ll never go back. My clients include triathletes, office managers, body builders, parents, musicians, artists, real estate agents… everyone can benefit from this deeply healing and effective modality. For more info, please see these articles.

First Session: Please arrive 10 minutes early to fill out the proper paperwork. We will do a simple postural analysis and make a plan. Please do not wear any body lotion.

Following Sessions: Please arrive 5 minutes before scheduled start time to discuss your needs and your progress.

The Structural Integration 10 Series: Developed by Dr. Ida Rolf, this is a series of 10 ninety+ min sessions designed to free restrictions and rebalance the structure and function of the body from the sleeve to the core. Please inquire for more info.

In The Session: Please dress down to your first layer: ladies, remain in your bra and underwear - men, please remain in your underwear. To ensure your privacy, I will never enter the room without knocking. During the session, it is best to keep communication open to maintain your utmost comfort and will greatly benefit the effectiveness of the session. I encourage feedback and questions.

Craniosacral Massage

At 5 grams of pressure – the weight of a nickel – it’s an advanced light touch modality developed by Osteopath Dr. John Upledger. Cerebral spinal fluid flow nourishes and protects the brain and spinal cord. Craniosacral massage unlocks restrictions held in the body’s soft tissue, opening up the flow of CSF and bolstering the body’s ability to fight disease. The client remains fully clothed and relaxed.

I draw on training from multiple modalities to create a customized, relaxing session for each client. Connective Tissue Massage is a foundation to create more space and ease of movement within your body.
