I have received so many sweet protests from you about the end of full body, deep tissue and medical massages that I felt it best I explain to you why I am doing this, and what is next for my practice and my professional life.
I am stopping so much massage therapy because I am listening to my body.
My body has been telling me to stop doing so many massage sessions for a few years now, and I have decided to listen more deeply and take a break. I started working as a massage therapist in 1994. With 23 years of practice, I know my skills are honed. I love doing massage, so it is hard for me to give up, but I am afraid if I don’t listen to my body, I will get sick. That is often how these things unfold. Many of us don’t listen to messages we receive, so they often get louder, in the form of illnesses or what we call a “spiritual 2 x 4.” I am following this leading, and offering a bodywork session that is a combination of that intelligent touch and craniosacral therapy in its place. The Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a deep listening to the body, and then therapeutic presence and exact skill to help the body reorganize, and health to increase. So you can still come for bodywork, it will just be different. Here are things I am still offering:
Over the next two years I will be offering my own training for professionals wanting to learn about prenatal and perinatal trauma, and a wide variety of other experiences locally, nationally and internationally.
I also want to write, and have leadings to write blogs, articles and books.
So, I want you to know that I am still here. You can still come and receive bodywork from me. Thank you for your support and kind words. Let’s keep working together. I am taking more time this summer to be with my family and teach in different locations. Starting in September, I will have more availability Tuesday through Friday. If you are looking for a massage, I recommend any of these local places and practitioners.
