LMBT, Advanced Structural Integrator
Like many people, I used to get massages every month for my trouble areas. For me, that was my neck (I had headaches almost daily). Massage and chiropractic helped alleviate my symptoms for a bit, but they always came back within a few days. As a massage therapist, I saw the same pattern with my clients and most of them were in worse shape than I was.
I was always on the lookout for something more. Even with all the continuing ed courses I took, it felt like something was missing. I wasn't looking for something that would just last longer. I wanted to find what would actually help people get better.
I seriously considered pursuing an intensive specialization in trigger point therapy. Who knows why I didn't; maybe my subconscious was waiting for something bigger.
I began working with a structural integrator and after a few sessions, I realized this wasn't just a different style of massage. He worked on places that no one else ever had, in a way no one else ever had. It was actually changing my body, and my mind. I stopped having regular neck pain and headaches. But it was more than that. I finally found what I had been looking for all those years...transformation.
I believe as the body gets physically opened and comes into alignment so do the other parts of your life...mental, emotional & spiritual. Receiving structural integration bodywork led me to reiki, meditation, breathwork, and movement. In essence, it is a spiritual journey for me and sharing it is a part of that journey.
