Services I Offer
I am a student of the John Barnes approach of myofascial release. Myofascial release is a form of bodywork that specifically addresses the fascial system of the body, which is the connective tissue web that interweaves the entire body, down to (and inside) the cellular level. The fascial system is a fascinating, still under-researched bodily system. Not only do fascia completely permeate the body, supporting and creating space for every cell; scientists are beginning to appreciate the fascial system as a fiber optic continuum enabling coordinated communication of the entire body. Fascial restrictions, which arise because of any type of trauma or surgery, are therefore believed to cause any number of physical, emotional and mental symptoms, because these can be viewed as interruptions in the normal flow of consciousness. While many types of therapies separately label and treat symptoms that arise from fascial restrictions, the intention of the myofascial release approach is to ease the fascial restrictions themselves. Because of its structure, the fascial system responds to relatively gentle, sustained pressure. In a myofascial release session, you can expect a discussion of your goals and a physical evaluation, and hands-on techniques that generally involve long holds using gentle sustained pressure applied to areas of the body associated with or related to your symptoms. For your appointment, please wear shorts and a tank top or sports bra, or a two-piece bathing suit, and make sure your body is clean and dry before the session, as these techniques involve no lubricants. If you are interested in receiving this work because you have a specific goal in mind, it is recommended that you book a block of sessions in relatively close proximity to each other, then follow up as needed.
I also offer intuitive energy clearing/activation informed by my experience with Reiki, therapeutic touch, shamanic techniques, and other consciousness-changing practices. These sessions can be done in-person or remotely (remote work is no less powerful because the principles of interacting energetically involve no-time no-space) .
