It’s a strange time, isn’t it? The world seems upside down and few things are making sense. I don’t know about you but I’m finding some sweet moments while I’m also navigating some challenging moments. People I once thought I understood seem to be speaking a different language I can’t understand. And conversely, other people I’m pleasantly surprised to see their coping skills.
Speaking of coping skills. About 3 years ago, I went through a divorce. I’ve been navigating how to heal from such a provocation. Before you can heal, you have to learn coping skills to deal with any current incoming threats. We share children so the importance of identifying coping skills and quickly was paramount. I would go to handle something about the kids and I would find myself in a puddle of tears on the floor because I didn’t know how to handle the constant bombarding of triggering events. Now that I have some major coping skills in tact, I can feel my way through an experience before going too far “offline.”
I often compare this to our physical bodies. We must address the current organization of your function before we can begin to work with changing anything. This is where education and discovery for yourself become super informative.
It’s one thing to receive the super therapeutic benefits of a massage but it’s another thing to feel empowered in your body to feel your best.
Through the current online appointments that I am offering while we are encouraged to stay at home, I am walking you through a series of movements to help you find new ways to connect with you body. You could even say….ways to identify a coping skill that has either hindered your experience or made it easier. Despite the current lifting of the shelter at home but heavily encouraged social distancing (which is impossible during a massage) there is a good chance it may be a little while longer before we can work together again in person.

What you want to know:
-This is not massage like you traditionally know it.
-You’ll just need a space where you can stand, move, and lay down. Possibly some blankets. And definitely clothes you can be comfortable in
-Judgement Free Zone- This is for anyone. There is not wrong or right way to move. I’m not here to tell you what you’re doing wrong. I’m here to help you find what works for you.
-You should reserve 45-60 minutes for the session.
A normal online session is $40. If you are a member and have a session to use, you will get 3 sessions for $80!
There’s absolutely no harm in checking it out. You’re only going to feel better. 🙂 Schedule here but please send me an email because our scheduling software does not alert me when you book the appointment.
If you’re still unsure:
Join us over on Facebook every Friday at 530p to get a taste of what these online appointments are like. However, you will need to bring some information, like what is bothering you and that’s public, so be mindful of that.
And of course, I encourage you to reach out to me if you have any questions or curiosities about working together online. I’m super excited about this as I have found it to be a very valuable tool. Please text or email. If you need to discuss via phone, let’s set up a time to chat.
I can’t wait to work with you!
