Structural & Functional Alignment Bodywork
Structural and Functional Alignment Bodywork, aims to lengthen and loosen the connective tissue know as fascia that surround the tissues, organs, and structures within our bodies. This lengthening and balancing of fascia allows for a restorative process to occur and thus provides opportunity for a greater range of motion and function while creating awareness for the client of their own body alignment, function, and their own ability to retrain chronic holding patterns and dysfunction.
Tightened and shortened fascia can limit range of motion, posture, gait, breathing, and create and the support the continuance of chronic pain. Learned behaviors, stances, and compensation can be addressed and may be corrected through a combination of bodywork and retraining the body’s proprioception through re-patterning stretches, exercises, breathing, and bodywork.
Multiple sessions may be purchased in packages of four. Each session will be 60-75 minutes and should occur within a six week period.
Initial Consultation: $110
Four Session Package: $350

Oncology Massage is a term that describes safe and appropriate massage for a person in cancer treatment and even the special modifications once treatment is over. “Oncology Massage is service from the heart, one patient at a time, when caring touch matters.” Oncology massage takes the understanding of what massage can do for a person in treatment and gives that patient help with the long and short term side effects of treatment and creates a comfort-oriented massage that can help with anxiety, may decrease pain, help with sleep and decrease muscle tension. A Massage Therapist trained in Oncology Massage has the awareness and ability to assist with basic physical and emotional issues of cancer treatment, and create a healing environment for their client.
Contact email@example.com or call 443-540-7740 to learn more about this wonderful work customized for each individual experience with oncology, living with cancer, survivorship, and support networks.
