Brief Modality Descriptions
Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education
Functional Integration® lessons are flexible in their approach, determined by the your needs. Lessons take place lying, sitting, standing, can be active or more passive. Clients are clothed. These lessons are rooted in developmental science, brain learning, neuroplasticity and the body's innate healing capacity. We build our idea of ourselves throughout our lives. Here is a place you can teach yourself to learn something valuable that emerges from yourself.
Heather works with you, using methods that suit your needs, including: Cranio Sacral, Muscle Energy Technique, Sports Massage, Pain-free MyoFascial Work, and Neuromuscular techniques, as well as pain science and trauma informed methods. Heather's Feldenkrais training allows these to be integrated in a way that supports lasting transformation. Clients are usually fully clothed, but not always: lymphatic techniques, and some other specific treatments may be offered.

Therapeutic Massage is a beautiful way to nourish, support healing, sleep, digestion, and to address and counter stress. In addition, myofacial techniques, lymphatic techniques, and neuromuscular and movement techniques mean that some of the structural changes can be long-lasting. Therapeutic Massage techniques are supportive of the functional and life-long gains made through Feldenkrais sessions and classes.
What we do physically affects our energetic and emotional self. We can work with that through the body, or from an energetic perspective. Reiki is works across time and space, and helps you align with your intention to heal. "Reiki is a method of natural healing that works to put the mind and body at ease and so participate in its own recovery. Reiki treatments help to relieve stress and pain both at a physical and emotional level, restoring a sense of balance and well-being" - Michael Emanuel
Sometimes you need to honor a moment, have some space held for you to do your own healing work. These sessions are deeply restful, and involve gentle hands-on/hands-off Reiki, the use of singing bowls, fully supported postures adapted for your needs and comfort. Learn to access this type of deep rest through practices you can take into your everyday life. Each pose built specifically for you, this practice is transformative: engaging with the nature of stillness, physical, emotional, and energetic unwinding occurs simply from resting, from gentle hands on, and from your breathing in these creative and supportive shapes.
Vibration moves through the physical body, helps to still the mind, and supports your healing after, or in combination with these other modalities. Support your system's capacity to heal, through transformative vibration, and energy work. Heather works with integrity to help you align with your highest good. Sound healing is a beautiful and special reset.
