Bodywork and Motion
Lets explore one or more of systems to mobilize restricted areas in order to re-create a free flow of energy. We may together create new circumstances for change in your bodymind.

The Healing Forces of Therapeutic​​

Some forms of massage treatments and movement are familiar to all cultures. Our daily stress can create contractions or adhesions at vital joints and nerve pathways can get blocked which can lead to various dysfunctions. It is important to identify areas which hold restrictions, the natural flow of vitality and prompt the appropriate muscles to release from often painful fixated conditions. 

Free assessments, which go through your daily routine, are designed to determine the cause of your conditions. By modifying your daily routine through motion, posture analysis, gait and sleeping positions, it is possible to limit undue stress in your muscular system and joints. Some basic stretches and/or well designed Liebscher & Bracht range of motion exercises, may reduce pain, increase mobility and enhance your overall quality of life.

Literally hundreds of conditions can be benefited through therapeutic treatments. Pain code points, motion exercises, some of which are for arthritic conditions, chronic pain, whiplash, migraine, headaches, TMJ, neck and back pain, thoracic outlet, tennis/golfer's elbow, carpal tunnel, scoliosis, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, repetitive strain injuries, and most other pain related conditions may be benefitted through this service. Also Euro/Asian methods of heated herbs can be an additional possibility during treatments.

Relaxing wellness or pain/welless-management treatments have a cumulative effect and can provide a peaceful space in which the body/mind connection is re-established perhaps inviting a sense of harmony and peace.

Be ready to partake in your own well-designed treatment-journey which may include the following modalities: Swedish, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, japanese Anma, Thai Treatments, L&B (European pain code system),  liberating motion exercises, hot rocks, hot towels, essential oils and organic oils.​ Why not feel the difference?
