Bodywork & Integrative Massage
Structural-Functional Postural Alignment
Neural Reset and Paul St. John Method Neuromuscular Therapies work directly with rebalancing the nervous system to increase neural plasticity. Bodywork techniques used are an eclectic blended flow that range from relaxing Swedish to Acupressure/Medical/Sports massage. Where appropriate, focus on the use of props for positional release and kinesthetic unwinding may be added to sculpt facia. Energetic work with detail to breath and attentive silence may also happen throughout your session to augment treatments.
Decompress & Detox
This is the only treatment that uses reverse pressure as compared to massage or needles to relieve excess rigidity in muscle tissue by giving space to nerve, vascular and cellular microstructures underneath the skin. Depending on what is needed, silicone cups are often used for reducing pain, densification of fascial tensions and increase circulation. Glass flash cups are used to warm the body, like hot stones and have a great efficacy of reducing coughs or illness by dredging pathogens to the surface layers of the body to be drained and processed by the lymphatic system. Gua sha may also be used to gently increase circulation and sculpt fascia like a bird preens its feathers.
Oov Movement Re-education
Oov, Move, Groove!
This amazing pre-habilitation tool was invented by an Australian Osteopath deeply connected to the Pilates world. This movement tool helps to unwire faulty movement patterns that often have physio-emotional origins. Within 24-48 hours a newly reset body needs reinforcement to hold its new position in space for longer periods of time. The Oov puts the body in an environment where proprioception is improved through a reflexive kinesthetic feedback chain. The body-mind learns to coordinate the ability to turn-on or off intrinsic core muscle groups segmentally for balance. Subtle changes occur with care and attention to appropriately coached progressive and regressive movements that enhance overall daily function, athletic performance, injury prevention and recovery from invasive procedures.
Wendy has uncommon understanding of the body. There is much she knows kinesthetically from the inside out. I am lucky enough to receive treatments with her on a regular basis, so I know the depth of her integrity and skill. I enjoy both her thoughtful questions and the way her ideas invite me to open to new understanding of my own work.
