"I read this New York Times article and decided to see whether there was anybody in Claremont who could help me."
This, from a new client today who found me online, as "you seem to offer more than a normal massage therapist." She says she has put up with the pain long enough and is ready to explore change from the body perspective.
Yay! First step in seeking well-being is saying, "Enough!" and feeling open to ask questions about what could be different. Then, who to trust along the way. Many of my clients are right there at that edge of discovery. It's a time ripe for experimenting.
Q: So does this article come close to describing what you do?
A: Well, sometimes. Often. Depends on what client is open to explore, their stated goals, and how the body calls. Some sessions more like "normal" massage, even deep tissue. Sometimes a whole session is a story-led sensory exploration, all while sitting in chairs, moving a bit, bringing awareness outside on purpose, not even using the table. My goal is always integration... a topic that warrants its own article!
