Restorative Bodywork

ABOUT

My passion for the healing arts developed at a young age through my personal experience working with a Naturopath. Healing with herbs, food, and bodywork created a lifelong interest to help others through alternative care. 

 

For the past 12 years, I have dedicated countless hours immersing myself in the study of holistic medicine. I first studied Western Herbal Medicine at the California School of Herbal Medicine in Forestville, California, and went on to apprentice as an Herbalist at the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine in Ithaca, New York. I then obtained my massage license at the Ashland Institute of Massage in Ashland, Oregon, and completed my Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® certification in Mendocino, California.

Modalities Offered:

Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®:

“Jin Shin Do” means “The Way of the Compassionate Spirit.” Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® uses gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal Body Focusing techniques, to help release "armoring" or chronic tension, balance the "Qi" or energy, and improve vitality. This clothes-on method helps relieve stress- and trauma-related problems. A unique synthesis of a traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acupuncture and acupressure theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong (breathing and exercise techniques), Reichian segmental theory and principles of Ericksonian psychotherapy, it is recognized as a major form of Asian Bodywork Therapy. Originated by psychotherapist Iona Marsaa Teeguarden, Jin Shin Do® Acupressure promotes a pleasant trancelike state, in which one can relax and move out of the head and into the body, accessing feelings and inner wisdom.

Acupressure:

Acupressure is an ancient time-tested therapy derived from Asia. With gentle but firm pressure, this modality accesses the body’s meridians (energy pathways) providing pain and stress relief. Acupressure follows the same philosophies as acupuncture but uses direct finger pressure instead of needles.

Trigger Point Therapy:

Trigger points are points of tension within a muscle that refer pain to surrounding tissues. Often times these points of tension are a result of an injury, stress, lack of oxygen to the tissues, or overuse. By using specific techniques Trigger Point Therapy addresses chronic muscle pain within the tissues and fascia.

Swedish:

By incorporating gentle, gliding strokes Swedish Massage promotes full body relaxation and increases circulation. 

Deep Tissue Therapy:

Deep Tissue Therapy involves firm direct pressure and slow strokes to address chronic pain, to bring circulation to the tissues, and to decrease inflammation.
