Massage and Rolfing

Specialized Medical Massage

Medical massage is outcome-based massage, primarily the application of specific treatment protocols targeted to the specific problem(s) the patient presents with physician’s diagnosis and administered after a thorough assessment/evaluation by the medical massage therapist with specific outcomes being the basis for treatment.  The term medical massage came out of the public’s need for highly skilled, hands-on therapists in treating those with injuries and chronic pain and the benefit patients receive when medical massage therapists and doctors work together.

Rolfing® Structural Integration 

Rolfing is a holistic philosophy, science, and art that structurally and functionally integrates the body in gravity through myofascial manipulation and movement education. Rolfing is a participatory form of bodywork. Practitioner and recipient attend to structure and function/movement, with both subtle and active intentions. Rolfing is commonly practiced in a series of ten, one-hour sessions conducted weekly or monthly, allowing for sufficient integration time. Post ten work is available three to six months after an initial series.

Misconception: “Rolfing must be painful.” This popular misconception dates back to a time when structural integrators worked ON clients rather than WITH them. Rolfing has evolved. My practice is slow and quite gentle. Pain is not a catalyst for change. Transformative change occurs with realization of individual resources and freedom of choice. Assisting that transformation is my practice.

Chronic pain, acute trauma, and emotional distress limit ease and function in the body; thus disturbing the balance of our inherent capabilities.
