How we hold our body creates structural changes. Muscles actually shorten, fascia bunches up, creating structural ripple effects throughout the body. Your body is all connected! Our emotions directly impact how we hold our body, thus our emotions directly impact our physical structure and posture. Therefore, our emotions and experiences can directly cause structural changes.

Are you used to shrinking and hiding? Your posture will show that in the structural changes.
Are you stuck in fight or flight mode and used to holding your breath or taking shallow breaths? It will show up in your rib cage function.
Did an old injury lead you to favor one side of your body? This creates compensation patterns that directly impact the rest of your body.

These structural changes can create imbalances and often then cause dysfunction in all areas of your body. It’s all connected!

The good news is your structure can change. You’re not stuck with these structural changes. But in order to truly heal both your emotional and physical bodies need to experience change.

I can guide you through this. My bodywork is specifically aimed at creating new structural patterns and restoring balance that eases pain and improves functional movement.

In my healing intensive 12-week series, we make structural changes to shift your holding patterns. Through visual assessments, I track your structure and posture, targeting bodywork to imbalances.

Over 12 weeks, we make consistent structural changes and see the improvements in both how your body feels and moves. You will experience less pain and more ease, and this will create ripple effects into your entire life.
