Massage/Bodywork Treatment
as indicated by research provides relief by changing the levels of hormones, reducing cortisol and increasing serotonin, which affects stress and pain sensitivity, and also assists in removing waste from muscles, increases blood and nutrient flow, improves cell oxygenation, and adjusts our nervous system to its relaxation mode. Fibromyalgia clients experience improved sleep, reduction of pain, fatigue, anxiety, and depression.

Structural Energetic Therapy (SET) is a deep tissue body restructuring that rehabilitates chronic pain and dysfunctions in the body.

SET moves and releases the massive buildup of toxicity within the tissues and muscles, which makes it possible for freer and easier movement and a reduction of fatigue and exhaustion. This rebalancing also relieves an overstressed musculature to support and maintain an upright posture.

SET techniques release old structural patterns in order to rehabilitate and support a new balanced postural alignment. The treatment is based on the needs of the client, beginning with releasing the structural imbalance responsible for the primary area of discomfort.
