Remedial massage uses a combination of techniques to treat the causes of musculoskeletal dysfunction and imbalances. It is a holistic approach that uses several assessment techniques to locate and treat dysfunction while also supporting the body's own repair mechanisms. In particular, it is the specific manipulation of soft tissue, including not only muscles, but ligaments, tendons and fascia that can help restore proper function to the body.
INTUITIVE HEALING BODYWORK SESSIONS
My expression within these sessions is a method for healing, awakening , transformation and empowerment.
Its being present to the clients mental emotional and physical needs with an intuitive touch and insightful knowing .
My intention within these sessions is to gently bring you into an embodied state of being, hold a safe grounded compassionate space for clients to embody their own intuitive “knowing " of what is calling to be expressedand to birth forth what ever may rise ,not only from the release within the tissues but also the deeper emotional response that may under lye.
A session with Meredith is so much more than a bodywork session. She holds a sacred space for deep journeying shamanic and emotional.
During the sessions, it felt like she became at one with my energetic body, reading it intuitively and then working through the muscles, the myofascia and the subtle bodies, dissolving old patterns held in the body all the way to the nervous system layer.
My experience is she worked with me to access deep layers, energetically imprinted in the nervous system, supporting them to release at their deepest imprinting.
My body dissolved and melted under her touch. I feel lighter, more space on my body, physical ease and release structurally, especially my pelvis, more ecstatic flow in my body and an opening in my being after gifting myself a deep immersion time with Meredith.
Structural Integration is a form of bodywork that focuses on the connective tissue of the body called fascia
When fascia is in a healthy state is quite elastic and freely moves with the bones and muscles. Stress, repressed emotions ,injuries, effects of aging, posture, and work-related repetitive movements are just a few issues that can cause fascia to lose its elasticity and become tighter, shorter and more dense.
Tightened or misaligned fascia can pull the skeleton and muscles out of correct alignment , bringing about discomfort, pain and fatigue.
Structural Integration is usually performed over several sessions enabling the restricted fascia to be released, returning the body to its structurally optimal position.
The work focuses on creating more balance within the body through deep, slow, exploratory work through neuromuscular and connective tissue (fascial) layers of the body
During a session , significant changes in the body’s posture, movement, physical experience including the breath are achieved through education, awareness, and therapeutic touch. The bodywork focuses on the fascia rather than on the muscles.
PRE & POST NATAL MASSAGE
Pregnancy is a time of tremendous physiological and emotional changes and receving massage therapy during this time can not only minimize or prevent many common discomforts, but also provide nurturing and support.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Treats areas of hyper-irritability in the soft tissue structure. T/P's are manifested as small contraction knots. They produce pain locally and in a referred pattern and often accompany chronic musculoskeletal disorders.
