WHAT IS A BODYWORKER?
In alternative medicine, bodywork is any therapeutic or personal development technique that involves working with the human body in a form involving manipulative therapy, breath work, or energy medicine
WHAT DOES A BODYWORKER DO?
Bodyworkers use touch, manipulation or massage to help you heal. Bodyworker includes physical therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, massage therapists, craniosacral therapists, Rolfers, Hellerworkers and practitioners of acupressure, the Alexander technique, Feldenkrais Method and Therapeutic Touch.
HOW WOULD IT HELP ME?
Due to chronic emotional and physical stress, most people’s bodies retain a certain amount of tension which subtly alters the way they perform natural functions, such as walking, running, sitting, etc. Over time, due to this gradual alteration away from alignment, these imbalances may express themselves in physical ailments, such as neck pain, back injuries, or emotional ailments, such as lack of motivation or painful menstrual cycles.
To address both aspects I fuse a set of different bodywork and energy modalities to suit the client’s unique needs.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT THE FIRST SESSION?
It is important for me to find out your intention for the session and clear up expectations, how you may feel during and post session, aftercare and when if necessary to follow up. The first session is structured to gently introduce your body to my technique, energy and touch. Some people experience transformation after the first session, while others experience major shifts after 3 or 4. Sessions are designed for gentle progression, as much as the body can take, respecting boundaries and keeping you connected with yourself.
HOW LONG DO THESE SESSIONS LAST?
Depending on the need of the client, each session could take between 2 and 4 hours.
WHAT DO I NEED TO WEAR DURING THESE SESSIONS?
For Lymphatic Drainage or Dynamic Thai Therapeutics, loose clothes such as long pants and a T-shirt is recommended. For Chi Nei Tsang, Emotional Therapy or oil massage, underwear is just recommended. Blankets and towels will be provided to cover areas that are not being worked on.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO HAVE SESSIONS WITH YOU?
It depends entirely on what the desired outcome is. As each person is unique I have designed 1-month and 3-month rejuvenation packages of various complementary modalities to gently transform and enhance the way your body perceives everyday life. On the other hand, having a monthly session of a single modality is fine, as long as it aligns with your specific goals.
WHAT PAYMENT FORMS DO YOU ACCEPT?
Currently only Payme and cash.
