Primary techniques include fascial mobilization and release, cranio-sacral therapy and visceral mobilization.
These techniques involve grip and light stretch and so use of lotion is minimal, if it is used at all. These techniques can be applied through clothing.
I am particularly interested in working on chronic patterns and symptoms that persist (and sometimes appear) long after the initial injury.
It is very satisfying to see a gradual increase in activity and reduction of symptoms in patterns that seemed as though they were here to stay.
I will address the symptoms and areas that are troubling you, and other areas that may be contributing to your symptoms.
For example, symptoms of Tennis Elbow may benefit from treatment of the hand, wrist and forearm. Hip pain may be referred from the low back. Developing more comfortable posture and movement habit might also be part of the work.
The goal is to provide relief of the familiar symptoms as well as address any structural and movement patterns that may be contributing to your symptoms.
