About the Somatic Movement Therapies 

 

Massage and Bodywork Techniques

With over 5000 hours of training and certifications from a number of different massage and bodywork programs, I draw on an array of techniques to address your needs. From years of teaching kinesiology and massage modality classes, I have an in depth understanding of anatomy and offer specific work to alleviate chronic muscle and joint pain. I also have years of clinical experience helping clients recover with sports injuries, whiplash, headaches, arthritis, surgeries, and accidents.

 

The type of treatment I give you will depend on your goals and your condition. You can choose from the following techniques:

  • Swedish massage for deep relaxation-stress relief

  • Deep tissue for chronic muscle pain and recovery from injuries/surgeries

  • Craniosacral for headaches-trauma-whiplash-neck pain

  • Lymphatic drainage for swelling from soft tissue injuries

  • Neuromuscular patterning for changing posture and movement 

Neuromuscular patterning  (NMP) is my specialty. It integrates bodywork with active movement techniques for better results. In a NMP session, I direct the client to do specific core muscle isometrics or movements to engage specific muscles while I do hands-on release techniques to lengthen overworking muscles. Working together with our active participation boosts effectiveness

and produces longer-lasting results. 

The benefits of NMP include

  • improves body awareness and core engagement skills

  • realigns posture and cultivates economy of motion

  • relieves chronic pain from muscular tension 

  • reduces and prevents repetitive-use injuries

  • improves joint flexibility and range of motion 

  • improves dance and athletic performance
