What to expect in a Myofascial therapy session

Design individualized bodywork sessions based on your personal goals

  • Sessions may include myofascial therapy, alignment activities, movement, restful craniosacral therapy, body scan meditations and/or a somatic approach.
  • Myofascial therapy may also be bundled with Body Ready Method® sessions for a comprehensive personal home program with bodywork support.
  • You may find release around emotional challenges with an integrated somatic approach when restrictions have a history.
  • You may wish to develop active mindfulness in movement and learn practices to nourish your heart-mind.
  • A somatic approach and/or mindfulness practices may be woven into adult sessions, based on your preference and concerns. You may also add-on time to your session to expand on somatic processing and/or mindfulness.

The quality of touch for myofascial therapy ranges from light, fluid vibration to firm, stretchy touch, and movement. Craniosacral therapy may be combined with myofascial therapy in session. Both are fascia release therapies; each focusing on specific areas of the body. Fascia release is deeply relaxing, while effectively releasing tension in tissues.

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 remove a layer of 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 adults as well as children. Babies and toddlers 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. Discounts for prepaid packages are available.
