Featured on two PBS specials! This innovative work in pain relief gently yet effectively addresses neuromuscular and musculoskeletal pain patterns at the root cause, addressing and correcting imbalances. Typically reduction of pain is achieved with the first treatment. An individual wellness plan is provided with recommended simple stretches that can be easily incorporated into your day.
IPT does not require ongoing appointments. A follow-up appointment is recommended to monitor and improve the wellness plan for maximum benefit. Many people come for two to three sessions although it is not uncommon to find relief and learn to incorporate IPT into your self-care with only one appointment! IPT is a reset for your body!
Mindfulness meditation helps create ease in body and mind. The practices of mindfulness are rooted in ancient Eastern wisdom teachings yet are relevant to today's frantic times. With an intention to learn to bring attention to the present moment we can tap into the peace and centeredness that is inherent in each of us.
By practicing mindfulness we shift into an awareness of things as they are and create the possibility of relating to ourselves and others with more kindness, clarity and understanding. Mindfulness practice can help us move from our habitual autopilot doing mode into being. It is a reset we can learn to use anytime, anywhere.
Mindfulness can be practiced sitting (in a chair if needed), lying, standing or even when walking slowly. These practices can be done in just a few minutes a day and make a huge difference when practiced regularly.
We often hear that yoga's roots can be traced back thousands of years. The ancient philosophical texts do speak of yoga, however most of the references are of meditation, only mentioning posture as it refers to sitting with ease. The western yoga poses we learn today originated in Britain in the 1800's. Yoga adepts were acrobats! The goal should not be to attain a particular posture, but to care for and support the body-mind. Intentional yoga, relevant to our modern lifestyle and practiced at a slow pace, with attention to the body and breath is particularly useful in reducing stress, creating ease of movement and toning and strengthening for optimal function off the mat.
