Although I'm happy to provide deep tissue therapy, I do not believe in "no pain, no gain".
Often deep holding patterns can be released by the most gentle touch.

is a calming experience involving gentle touch, awareness of breath and sometimes quiet reflective dialogue between therapist and recipient. With this process comes an intimate, interiorly sensed personal knowledge of oneself.
With this opening, deep rejuvenation and relief from physical and emotional pain and trauma may occur. Easier movement and new emotional & cognitive choices can emerge.
Information that has been unconscious begins to move toward awareness through internal physical sensations, images, & memories. Often this awareness provides insight, while allowing affected muscles to relax. Over the course of a session there is a continual accumulation of tiny changes and a general sense of well-being.
