it is you, allowing you!
massage techniques i use
Thai Yoga massage
Thai Yoga massage is a continuous flow & rhythm of alternating movement, pressure, rotation, rocking, and stretching.
Thai massage works with stimulating energetic lines through pressure points.
The massage takes place on a futon on the floor. I place my body in effective leveraging positions, giving me control over my weight and the level of pressure I apply. I stretch my own body as well, and gain energy while working!
Thai massages is for those of you who like to be 'handled' - I say this with a grin. It forms an invitation to surrender to the unexpected.
Core Fascial Release.
Core Fascial Release is a 'problem'-solving type of body work - as an approach much more therapeutic.
Fascia means the connective tissue, and with Core is meant the core or our body. This type of session is done on a massage table, and you will remain clothed.
Core fascial release helps to improve structural alignment, and release tension hot-spots in the connective tissue.
These sessions invite a big deal of self-awareness as well. You are an active partner in the treatment.
I have written several articles about the fascinating fascia! Reading those will give you more insight to this kind of session or body work.
Sometimes I will opt for a full oil massage, if that is what will bring your body the most benefit, or on your specific request.
I often use oil to work out a specific spot, or I finish the last 20 or 30 minutes of the massage with oil.
My experience is that I can work way more deeply without oil.
Oil only allows me to work on the superficial layers.
Most often I combine the different styles, whichever way it leads to the best results.
My sessions are best described as a synthesis of both the cohesion & flexibility between the physical, emotional, mind, energy, nervous-system, breath, liquid distribution throughout the body as well as bringing improvement to mobility & structural alignment.
