Rob’s work unites two highly effective approaches to bodywork. Esalen Massage® creates a sense of connection to the body whole, lulling the central nervous system into a deep state of relaxation. DeepBodywork® brings focused attention to muscles and joints impacted by stress or injury. The combination of these two techniques, paired with attention and intention, allows his clients to find relief from old tension patterns and therapeutic benefit for long-lasting chronic pain due to injury.
Bodywork is an effective way to interrupt unwanted tension patterns and bring new energy into chronic or injured areas. It’s no surprise then that bodywork has a cumulative effect; the more you work you receive, the more completely your body can reorganize itself in response to the work. When addressing patterns that have evolved over years, it can take several sessions to unwind the adhesions and re-educate the body (encouraging it to move in ways that will prevent the injury from re-occurring in the future). Rob can help design a comprehensive plan tailored to your needs.
Reorganizing and resetting patterns in the tissue doesn’t necessarily require a lot of intensity, but it does require a lot of patience. It’s vital when working with structures that have been traumatized to work slowly, deliberately, and with as much gravitation required to affect change, but no more.
Inviting touch into muscles and joints that have become numb or forgotten can bring emotional content to the surface. Regardless of what emerges, all issues physical and emotional, are treated with the same sense of reverence and care. Often, finding emotional release on the massage table can bring lasting relief.
Sessions with Rob are 1.5- 2 hours in length. You’re welcome to come in with specific issues you’d like to address, but that’s not necessary. In either case, Rob will address tension patterns, adhesions and restricted movement.
