"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free"
Our approach to remedial bodywork & yoga stems from how we can help to take away what is hindering the original essence of the person. It is a collaborative process, through which we hope to eventually empower you to take charge of your own healing.
These private remedial bodywork & energy therapy sessions help to ease physical & emotional tension, while regular private yoga sessions support the ongoing healing journey.
Here are the list of techniques & modalities we offer in one-to-one private sessions.
Remedial Bodywork Myofascial bodywork is a hands-on complementary healing modality that focuses on releasing the muscles (myo) & connective tissues (fascia) in order to relieve pain, aches & tension.
This can be due to injuries, scar tissues (eg. from surgery), or lifetime of habitual patterns (eg. bad posture) resulting in adhesions & chronic pain. These adhesions can cause limited range of motion, tightness & pain not only in the affected area but extends throughout other body parts.
By teasing these layers of connective layers apart, this helps to relieve pain, improving blood circulation, opening the breath and relaxing the nervous system, additionally the consequent release of emotional tension can also help jumpstart the healing journey.
Craniosacral work has its roots in cranial osteopathy, traditionally focussing on the cranial bones, spinal vertebra and sacrum, as well as the central nervous system, cerebrospinal fluid and system of membranes. Visionary Craniosacral Work®, as developed by Hugh Milne, combines sensitive and gentle hands-on bodywork with meditative use of the inner eye and ear, with techniques drawn from osteopathy, energy work and taoism.
The craniosacral practitioner often focus upon optimizing the position, fluid movement (‘wave’) and energy (piezolelectric charge and chi) of these parts of the craniosacral system. Combining both analytic understanding and intuitive perception allows stillness to happen and real healing to occur. This is useful for people with headaches, migraine, vertigo, whiplash, head trauma, TMJ and lower back issues.
Energy therapy (Reiki) Reiki is a form of complementary energy therapy that activates the body's natural healing process, promoting a sense of calmness and restoring balance on all levels, physical, mental and emotional. A Reiki treatment is done through the hands with the client fully clothed, and the Reiki energy will be used by the body to help heal, rejuvenate and reinvigorate.
Reiki helps to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. It also increases feelings of peace and inner calm and helps to booster your immune system.

Private Yoga sessions can be beneficial for a number of reasons. Some choose to start with their yoga journey private classes as group classes may be too intimidating, while another may want to advance their practice under safe guidance and proper alignment from yoga teachers. Another student may have physical injuries that need dedicated attention and healing, others may explore private sessions to deal with emotional blocks & challenges.
