Integrative Bodywork offers a unique opportunity to move beyond our automatic reactions to daily life. Awareness is gained through understanding how the interaction between posture, breath and the nervous system can shape our daily experience and our individual tension patterns.
Modalities include: Mind-body Integration massage, Lymphatic drainage massage, Aromatherapy relaxation massage and Core and pelvic floor activation therapy
Mind-body Integration massage brings together the principles of breath awareness, massage and self integration. By combining the physical, mental and emotional in a session, nervous system balancing is achieved through recognizing tension patterns that keep us in a stress state of flight or fight.
Lymphatic drainage massage facilitates the movement of congestion and swelling in the body, with manual techniques and selected Aromatherapy oils. Targeted sessions are tailored to individual needs, working to clear blockages from tension, nervous system imbalance and metabolic or hormonal challenges.
Aromatherapy relaxation massage combines balancing essential oils and ecclectic massage techniques to attain the ultimate relaxing experience.
