Relax Renew Reclaim
The goal of effective massage and bodywork is to help you relax and let go of the tightness that can develop from emotional tensions such as stress, sadness, or worry.
I offer a method of bodywork that not only helps you relax in the moment when you receive a session, but also has an enduring impact as you go through your daily life - in business meetings, parenting, with your families and friends and all the things that you do.
Many years ago when I discovered Rosen work as a client, I knew that I had struck gold. It was love at first touch. Rosen bodywork has taught me to experience my body as a whole, from the inside out. Part of this process is an awareness of one's breath, through which the body deeply relaxes and lets go of physical tensions and difficult feelings. Breath awareness is a core technique of modern day massage and bodywork and has been taught for thousands of years in the eastern traditions of tai chi, yoga, and the marital arts.
In a bodywork session, you, the client, become aware of your breathing and internal processes, and you experience a deep relaxation and peace that lasts long after a session has ended.
