Interactive Bodywork

Our lives are a complex dance with the perpetual downward force of gravity. Our physical form is a current 3D representation of how we are dealing with the burden.

Session $75 60 Minutes

Our bodies are unique, complex, ever changing, and they don’t come with an instruction manual.

Awakened Form Interactive Bodywork sessions are designed to improve function, decrease pain, and to educate clients about the consequences that posture has on their bodies.

This type of bodywork is typically performed on clients that are clothed in sports attire: shorts and tank top/sports bra etc. I will use standard massage draping techniques on areas that require more exposure.

Sessions begin with a conversation about your life, health history, and the issues that you are currently experiencing.

I may perform postural and gait analysis as well palpation and orthopedic testing when necessary. Posture is a HUGE part of what I work with. Many of my clients are able to radically improve their own lives by simply becoming aware of their posture and the way that they support their bodies as they move through space.

This is where NKT® manual muscle testing comes in and things get interesting!

I use what we have learned so far to begin looking for structures involved in high priority motor control issues like core weakness, neck stiffness, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, or chronic shoulder pain just to name a few.

I use something from my manual therapy tool kit to treat the dysfunction that I find with NKT®. I am always learning new methods. I currently rely heavily on deep tissue massage and PNF stretching to achieve results.

After the treatment I will explain the situation and provide a short personalized home corrective program. This usually involves a stretch followed by an activation. These exercises are intended to support longterm changes to the motor control pattern.


Neurokinetic Therapy® (NKT®)  

The brain builds complex neurological patterns for the way it uses muscles to move and stabilize the body. NKT® is a sophisticated method of manual therapy that can expose and address dysfunctional movement patterns through the use of precise manual muscle testing. Actively involving the brain allows for profound and often long-term improvements to coordination, balance, and overall neuromuscular function.
