Each session begins with a consultation. While each session is framed by a standard protocol to address the entire body, the work addresses each client’s individual needs.

Because change occurs from session to session, every session is a unique, organic interaction between client and practitioner.

The work includes techniques that represent a synergy of healing modalities: among these are profoundly deep tissue release work, mobilization, assisted resistance, stretching techniques, energy work, and other specialized somatic bodywork procedures.

The dynamic nature of the work means that the procedures used are informed by the client’s specific needs and challenges.

Clients are frequently given tools with which to maintain their improvement at home both between sessions and after the work is concluded.

Specially designed custom equipment is often used in the course of a session. These varied pieces allow deeper access into the tissue with greater comfort to the client, and they include:

The floor mat: allows for Maori and other specialized footwork to be performed, further facilitating deep release, with the advantage of being able to cover large areas of the body efficiently.
The posture seat:
used to facilitate work on the neck, shoulder trapezius, scapula, upper back, thighs and chest
The therapeutic arch: primarily used to facilitate releases in the back and sacrum.
Extension to the posture seat: may be used to access parts of the body from different angles and positions, as well as parts of the body that are more difficult to reach.

Will the work be painful?

The therapy is not painful; however, pain is sometimes felt during a session. The therapy actually makes you aware of the pain your body carries.

What will the session look like ?

The client is fully clothed. Each session uses specifically customize equipment designed to facilitate body positioning. The practitioner and client work together for healing in order to accomplish the release of physical, mental and emotional trauma stored in the body.The work is tailored to suit each client’s individual needs. Treatments generally range from 1 to 2 hours.

What should I wear?

Clients remain fully clothed in comfortable garb during sessions.

What can I expect to feel after a session?

Many people get pain relief immediately from their first session. But, the effects can take several days to be fully integrated in the body. After this period, most people will feel a reduction or complete elimination of their pain. There is also a feeling of lightness and openness, greater flexibility and an enhanced sense of well-being.
