Some individuals may perceive their losing fight with gravity as a sharp pain in their back, others as the unflattering contour of their body, others as constant fatigue, yet others as an unrelentingly threatening environment. Those over forty may call it old age. And yet all these signals may be pointing to a single problem so prominent in their own structure, as well as others, that it has been ignored: they are off-balance, they are at war with gravity.
What is a movement mobility session?
The focus on movement sessions is to complement Synergetic™ Myofascial Therapy and Structural Integration hands-on sessions by further improving upon posture and mobility. Each session consists of flexibility and joint range of motion movements, light resistance strength exercises, functional movement exercises, breathing techniques, and advanced myofascial hands-on techniques as needed. The sessions are individualized and tailored for your specific mobility needs based off specific assessments, passive and active. We generally start with a series of three and can be scheduled weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
Why is mobility important?
According to the late Dr. Ida P. Rolf, a Ph.D. in biochemistry (New York University) and founder of Structural Integration, a body in structural balance moves more effectively in the gravitational field. Bad posture such as forward head posture, slumped shoulders, excessive spinal curvatures such as lordosis and kyphosis, fallen arches in the feet, and more, inhibits functional movement, normal joint range of motion and overall mobility.
For example, a severe forward head posture can add 30 pounds of weight pressure to the spine. Postural misalignments often lead to aches and pains and stiffness in the body. It is also the cause of many injuries as someone starts an exercise program. Dr. Ida P. Rolf talked about stacking the blocks in the body. When the body gets out of structural balance, we end up fighting gravity, which will cause muscles and fascia to tighten and cause adhesions or as some say “knots” in the soft tissue.

Someone who sees beyond the technicalities of each movement pursuit or discipline. Someone who finds interest and wishes to understand the body, health, performance and physical artistic expression.
Synergetic™ Structural Integration - Myofascial Therapy
This session begins with a postural and functional mobility assessment. The technique mostly employed throughout this session involves fascial work. Also, stretching, rocking/shaking, and joint range of motion. It has been proven that applying deep, slow pressure, working dry, without lotion or oil, effects change of the chronic stuck weaving of fascia that binds our body together from the most superficial layers of the skin to the deepest in the joints, around the organs, and even in the brain. With this work, we create in the body the healthy tension needed to be upright and balanced. Walk away from this session in less pain, breathing better, and more aligned. Feel good in your body again after a series of these sessions!

You might have seen professional athletes such as Michael Phelps in the 2016 Olympics use cupping to reduce muscle soreness and tightness.
Cupping is an ancient form of therapy intended to facilitate healing with blood flow that can benefit anyone in need of tension relief.
We use dry and oil cupping with silicone, plastic or rubber cups. We also utilize a cupping machine that has a lighter pressure and can cover a larger area but is not as specific as individual cupping which has more of a deep tissue effect.
Note: cupping may cause bruising

Basalt Hot Stones with Therapeutic Massage
Therapeutic Foot Treatment & Shiatsu Facial Massage
This treatment begins with a salt scrub and warm towel application followed by a mud wrap to the feet and additionally, warm booties. We then focus on the scalp and facial Shiatsu massage is applied as we allow time for the mud to nourish fully. Once the mud is removed, the modalities used on the feet are reflexology, myofascial techniques, and Acupressure Reflexology. (note: we use gloves for the foot treatment so we have clean hands when working at the head!)
