Structural Bodywork & Myo-fascial Release


Structural Integration is a type of bodywork that focuses on the connective tissue, or fascia, of the body. Fascia surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, organs, and nerves, binding some structures together while permitting others to slide smoothly over each other. Fascia is designed to be elastic and move freely with muscles and bones.  Injury, stress, work-related repetitive movements and the effects of aging can cause fascia to lose its elasticity and become shorter, tighter, and more dense. Tightened fascia pulls our muscles and skeleton out of proper alignment and posture, which can cause pain, discomfort, and fatigue.Structural Integration works to lengthen, stretch, and soften this tissue to restore postural balance, ease of movement, and a feeling of being more at home in your own body. It is practiced in an organized series of sessions or individual sessions within a framework that is designed to restore postural balance by aligning and integrating the body in gravit

Hot Stone Massage   


A massage where stones are heated in water and placed along the energy centers and points on the body and used as an extension of the massage therapists hands. The heat from the stones allow the therapist to work the muscles more deeply without the discomfort of deep tissue massage.  These warmed stones balance and ground the body, harmonizing the mind body connection and bringing the recipient into a receptive and present state. The mineral composition in the stones act as magnets pulling out impurities and detoxifying the body, reducing muscular aches and pains, and extracting stress and negative emotions from the mind. This ancient healing art has been practiced by many cultures including the Mayans, Native Americans, and Hawaiians who believe that stones soothe the elements and heal all ailments.

Thai Yoga Bodywork


 Thai yoga massage, is a 2,500 year old Ayurvedic based body science developed and popularized by Buddha’s doctor, Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha.

An important element of Eastern medicine is the concept of life force or energy. In Yogic terms, it is referred to as Prana, in Chinese it is called Chi, and in Thai it is called Loom. All are referring to the basic principle of life force energy, which flows along specific channels. Along these channels, called “Sen lines,” also known as “Prana Nadis” in Yoga, are specific energy points, that when blocked, stagnates the flow of energy in one area of the body.

These blockages, caused by stress, tension, poor posture and injury can create dis-ease. Typically, there will be pain or tension in some areas of the body (often causing toxic build up) before certain symptoms of an ailment will occur. It is to our advantage to work on physical imbalances before they develop into more serious diseases and before the toxic build up has caused damage to our internal organs.

Traditional Thai yoga massage provides benefit by stimulating pressure points to open the body’s energy pathways, allowing healing energy to flow freely and allowing the body to heal itself. Thai yoga massage works in a similar way to practicing yoga poses. As participants hold a pose, blood slows to targeted areas. When the yogi releases the pose, fresh circulation rushes back into the area. Traditional Thai massage is a deep, full-body treatment, starting at the feet and progressing up to the head applying pressure on the “sen lines”. It is the combination of yoga stretching, calmness of meditation, with acupressure, and reflexology that makes it such an amazing healing art. Thai method uses mainly point pressure and muscle stretching. It is a full-body massage, performed on a floor mat, with both parties in loose, comfortable clothes.
