Wellness is the state of expressing health
How do we get there?
- We collaborate to reach your goals using an integrative approach based on a deep knowledge of the mechanics of injury, pain, musculoskeletal dysfunction, and the neurophysiology of stress and safety.
- You will be an active participant in your experience and will be given tools to independently move towards your goals between sessions
- You will connect with your body, breath, and state of awareness in ways that are uncommon in our society outside of a therapeutic context - and this experience will provide you with an opportunity to integrate not just the manual work you are receiving but also the intentions and goals you bring to each visit.
- By committing time and energy towards your health and wellness, you will be stepping into restorative action and immediately begin receiving benefits from a shift in perspective and attitude.
