Ann aims to offer bodywork as one aspect of healing, helping clients build strong immune systems, resolve chronic health conditions, heal properly from injuries and improve overall health. Her approach supports the vital forces in the body to clear stagnation and release restrictions that interfere with the amazing capacity for self-repair.

Ann believes that true healing happens when we nourish not only our physical body, but also our mind, heart, soul and spirit. 

Integrative Bodywork Descriptions

Depending on your current wellness goals, a bodywork session may include one or several of the following modalities:

Therapeutic Massage:

Blends Swedish Massage, which relaxes the body and improves circulation, Myofascial Release, which releases and hydrates the body’s connective tissue, and Neuromuscular Therapy, which helps release patterns of pain and re-educates the neuromuscular pathways to restore normal mobility.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT):

Because the lymphatic system is the main pathway for draining metabolic wastes and environmental toxins from the body, it is important to keep the lymphatic vessels free of congestion. Gentle, wave-like movements activate lymph circulation and improve functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems. Benefits include relief from pain and inflammation; detoxification of the body; improved surgical outcomes (pre- and post-surgery); reduced symptoms of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia; regeneration of tissue, including burns, wounds and wrinkles; deep relaxation and illness prevention and recovery. (LDT is not recommended during acute infection.)

Visceral Manipulation (VM):

A gentle therapy that releases fascial restrictions in the abdominal area to encourage the normal movement and function of your internal organs. Fascia is the soft component of the connective tissue system and envelopes everything in the body; therefore, fascial restrictions around the organs may show up as chronic musculoskeletal disorders, such as pain and limitation in the shoulders and lower back. VM also may help improve digestion, sleep patterns, hormone balance, headaches, sinus symptoms, fatigue and pain related to post-operative scar tissue.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST): A light touch technique performed with the client fully clothed. Following the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid, the therapist listens for restrictions in and around the central nervous system and gently releases them, allowing the body to return to a balanced state.  CST is deeply relaxing and can help relieve chronic neck and back pain, headaches, anxiety, unexplained pain syndromes and dizziness, chronic fatigue and brain traumas. It also can ease symptoms associated with PTSD, autism spectrum disorders, Parkinson’s Disease and other degenerative diseases of the nervous system.

Biofield Tuning: Biofield Tuning is a sound therapy that uses tuning forks to help clear stagnation and promote the flow of energy through and around the body. The forks may be used directly on the body, as well as in the electromagnetic biofield that surrounds each of us. After a session, people often report feeling lighter and having an enhanced sense of clarity. A regular Biofield Tuning session works primarily in the biofield, while a Sonic Meridian Flush works mostly on the body.

Ann believes that true healing happens when we nourish not only our physical body, but also our mind, heart, soul and spirit. 

Each type of therapy can be scheduled on its own or blended to create an integrated bodywork session.
