A process of re-educating the body through movement and touch to facilitate the relationship between the body and gravity. Therapeutic Bodywork systematically releases patterns of stress and impaired function.
How it Works
Aligns the Body, Improves Posture, Increases Flexibility – Freedom to Function
By lengthening and opening the patterns in the fascia, the thickened, tough tissue becomes soft, re-hydrated and more pliable.
Therapeutic Bodywork changes the body’s compensations by organizing the fascial imbalances.
The systematic approach to relating gravity through the myofascial layers aligns the body and improves posture. The body lengthens allowing muscles the space to work and promotes joints the freedom to function.
Therapeutic Bodywork is a very personal process. No two people are alike, their experience and the benefits will always vary. As a result of the process people often appear taller and slimmer. Some actually gain anywhere from 1/4 inch to over 1-inch in height. Feelings of discomfort or pain are often alleviated. Others often experience benefits such as greater flexibility, a feeling of lightness and fluidity, better balance, increased breathing capacity, and increased energy.
Therapeutic Massage is primarily concerned with physical changes in the body, yet affects the whole person. We are made up of emotions, attitudes, belief systems and behavior patterns as well as a physical being which are all interrelated. If the physical structure is aligned then the individual’s potential will open up. Often, we receive reports of positive changes, less stress, increased self-confidence, and improved ability to handle life’s changes with ease (reports come from all ages).
