Massage as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures. Touching is a natural human reaction to pain and stress, and for conveying compassion and support.
Healers throughout time and throughout the world have instinctually and independently developed a wide range of therapeutic techniques using touch. Many are still in use today, and with good reason. We now have scientific proof of the benefits of massage - benefits ranging from treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating the growing tensions of our modern lifestyles. Having a massage does more than just relax your body and mind - there are specific physiological and psychological changes which occur, even more so when massage is utilized as a preventative, frequent therapy and not simply mere luxury. Massage not only feels good, but it can cure what ails you.
Integrative Bodywork is deep, therapeutic massage that takes place on the table based on myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, Thai massage and other techniques. Focus is given to dispersing adhesions (“knots”), heat or stagnation in your tissue, clearing blockages and enhancing mobility.
An integrative bodywork session helps create more structural balance, improve range of motion and decrease pain. It includes exploration of the holding patterns that may be encouraging this imbalance. In addition to feeling structural change, you may walk away from a session feeling more peaceful, grounded and rejuvenated.
INTEGRATIVE BODYWORK : 60 minutes - $70, 90 minutes $95; please inquire about packages.

Maya Abdominal Massage is an external, non-invasive massage technique, developed by Dr Rosita Arvigo, after her apprenticeship with the last of the Traditional Maya Shaman in Central America, Don Elijio Panti. Maya massage improves organ function by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen by gently guiding the internal abdominal organs into their proper positions for optimal health and well-being.
This technique applies anatomy, physiology, herbology and naprapathy (the study of the ligaments, joints and muscles,) with ancient Maya healing techniques to address common complaints of both women and men. The technique works by reliving congestion and blockages to improve the flow of chi and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology. The Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Massage™ combines modern science with traditional healing and wisdom to produce a holistic path to physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. MORE INFO >
