Specific Explorations

Specific Explorations

The following sessions are ideas for specific explorations that I have found to be especially beneficial for my clients but that generally are not on the radar when people think about bodywork. Keep in mind that these are only suggestions and that many other possible areas for exploration.

Full Body Connective Tissue - 3 Hours ($300)

Generally, our sessions together will focus on specific areas of the body: releasing tension and stress in the back, working to open up the hips, easing leg pain, or any of the countless other issues that may arise in your body. However, it can be incredibly eye-opening to have all of the major muscle groups worked together in a single session. This Full Body Connective Tissue session begins with 15 minutes of energy work to open the joints and prepare your body to receive the connective tissue work to follow. We will then work down the back and up the front to help open up any blocks in the tissue. Finally, we will end with another 15 minutes of energy work, focusing on balancing the Chakras. This session is extremely beneficial for identifying areas that may need work, but that we are not yet aware of.

The Side Body - 120 Minutes

My of many have a very good idea about the size, shape, and feel of the front part of our bodies: this is the side that we can see most easily and which we often identify as "ourselves." After this, we often have a good, if less clear, idea of our back body. However, many of us struggle to connect to the shape and feel of our sides. Because of this, we may feel flat and not have a good sense of the width that we are occupying in space. The Side Body works to give us a sense of this width and depth, allowing us to connect to tissues that we have not connected with before.

The Core - 90 Minutes

Blah Blah Blah

The Breath that Moves - 90 Minutes

Constantly ebbing and flowing within out chest, our breath is essential to life. Unfortunately, tension in the hips, back, abdomen, chest, and neck can impede this flow. The Breath that Moves works specifically with the primary, secondary, and tertiary muscles of respiration, and the muscles surrounding the ribs but not involved in respiration, to bring more space to the ribs and lungs. By doing so, we allow ourselves to dip deeper into the flow of life.

Neck and Jaw - 60 Minutes

Blah Blah Blah
