Moving Conversations and Moving Freely Sessions
Moving Conversations and the Moving Freely series is provided by through my role as a Movement Facilitator. These sessions are focused to support relief from everyday aches and pains, enhance range of motion for increased performance and positively affect stress and anxiety. See my appointment calendar for details.
This is where we start! Moving Conversations provides a consultation and assessment by video conferencing. We'll review your day to day activities, your specific goals, any specific areas you wish to address, and most importantly, what fits into your day to day life. We'll review a few simple movements and breathwork based on your goals, and you'll leave with some great takeaways to assist you in moving freely.

More about your Therapeutic Massage:
Your customized therapeutic massage session is individualized to your goals. Based on your preferences, in addition to skilled hands-on techniques, you may include at no additional cost:
assisted stretching techniques
These options will be discussed prior to your appointment(s).
Heat and thermal therapy may deepen the therapeutic effect. Based on your preferences, your customized therapeutic massage session may incorporate heat therapy along with hands-on techniques, including hot towels or medical grade Mother Earth Pillows®*, specifically designed thermal flax seeds wrapped in a hygenic medical grade fabric.
Based on your preferences, your customized therapeutic massage session may incorporate aromatherapy through the use of Aromatics International* essential oils. Aromatherapy and essential oils are used through inhalation only, with a tissue placed in the face cradle or near the nose, but never placed directly on your skin. This allows you to experience the benefits of aromatherapy while keeping the room neutral for our next client. All aromatherapy is used following the safety guidelines recommended by the Tisserand Institute. If you are looking for other applications of aromatherapy and/or essential oils, please visit the resources page for recommendations for a Certified Aromatherapist.
Note: Aromatherapy is used sparingly with a mindfulness for future clients who may have scent related allergies or sensitivities. For more information on how I address this in my studio, review my blog post titled Addressing Scent-Related Allergies & Sensitivities.
Did you notice the quotes around "stretching"? That is intentional! In our sessions, stretching is not about lengthening a muscle, although it may give that feeling. Assisted "stretching" may slowly teaching your body a new stretch tolerance, with a goal of either a temporary increase in range of motion, a feeling of relaxation or both.
