What to expect in a myofascial therapy session
You can design private bodywork sessions for yourself based on your personal goals.
- Sessions may include myofascial therapy, alignment activities, movement, restful craniosacral therapy, touch, sounding, or body scan meditations.
- Myofascial therapy may also be combined with Body Ready Method® sessions for a comprehensive personal home program with bodywork support.
- You may find release around emotional challenges with Hakomi and mindfulness when restrictions have a history.
- You may wish to develop active mindfulness in movement and learn practices to nourish your heart-mind.
The quality of touch for myofascial therapy ranges from light, fluid contact to firm, stretchy touch, and movement. Myofascial therapy is deeply relaxing.
Dress in loose, comfortable layers. Sessions are on a massage table or on the floor for active movement and home program guidance. Depending on areas that need attention, you may be asked to move or remove some clothing for bodywork on the massage table.
Somatic therapy includes our experiences of movement in our inner world, including breath, fascia, and fluid rhythms. Catherine also draws on developmental movements as the wellspring of body and mind integration for all adults as well as children. Babies and toddlers may also benefit from myofascial therapy to relax chronic tension.
In finding your way through chronic tension or difficult emotional times, often a series of sessions is very helpful. At times we rely on a lifeline of support. Knowing that a session is coming up can help us move ahead on a journey to ease and comfort. For a series of sessions, discounts for prepaid packages are available.
