Your health and wellness are two of the most important things in life. Every thought, word, and behavior affects your well-being. Your mind, body and spirit all hold deep wisdom. Begin to transform your own health as you learn, trust and nourish your own wellness through a journey of self-care.
Shiatsu is a form of Eastern bodywork that honors the mind-body-spirit connection by treating holistically. Through practitioner stretching, applying pressure to energy pathways, and increasing breath awareness, our life force or 'Qi', is brought back to a more harmonious state.
Aquatic Bodywork integrates the principles of Zen Shiatsu during a warm water floating experience utilizing movement, stretching, and pressure to promote relaxation, musculoskeletal decompression and nervous system regulation.
Corrective exercise uses the principles of anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics to address compensations and imbalances to improve overall quality of movement in everyday life. Benefits include decreased pain, stress, and risk of injury, as well as improving posture, and restoring balance in the body.
