Bodywork Approach

The goal of our work together is to help the body reorganize itself into patterns that are more efficient, pain-free, and conducive to free and easy movement. Old injuries, habits of movement, even entrenched patterns of thought all create long-lasting effects in the body that determine how we feel as we move through life.

Whether we are working with an acutely painful condition, chronic tension and dysfunction, or simply to optimize healthy movement in your daily activities, you can expect thoughtful, effective work and real results.


 
 

Awareness is change

Pain alerts us to ways we have become unconscious in relation to our bodies and is the best motivator for change. While eliminating or reducing pain is certainly a priority in our work together, you may also discover that your pains and discomforts are offering up the opportunity to pursue real change in the way you inhabit your body. Skilled touch informs your changing awareness of your body. Your changing awareness in turn helps guide the therapeutic process.
