Amalia
Born and raised in the Bay Area, Amalia Castanon Hill is a product of her “Hippy” parents. While her father stayed home to raise Amalia and her two siblings, her Mother held down the family with an great career at Random House Publishing. Her Mom maintained balance by honoring practices that her Native American/Mexican heritage provided, especially when it came to health. With this foundation and the forward thinking actions of her role-defying parents, Amalia was always exposed to Indigenous medicines, mostly herbs, and healing modalities.

Massage Therapy quickly became Amalia’s focus.  She found a love of bodywork, health and wellness through her parents. She received her CMT hours from McKinnon Body Therapy Center in Oakland. Her career began to bud beautifully.

Amalia loves to learn, appreciates variety and new experiences, and has an incredible knack for being present with her clients. “Listening with her hands and her heart,” seems to be her gift. Amalia does Swedish, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Acupressure, Hot Stone and more!

Michael

 My view of wellness comes largely from the perspective of Ida Rolf’s theory that sound function follows integrated form. Achieving longevity and living free of chronic illness, fatigue, and pain requires attention and engagement in the restructuring of one’s physical form.   Breaking away from movement and thinking patterns that lead us away from a holistic and integrated system is empowering as well as fun.  What you will learn on this path to health you will take with you and be able to use on your own to take charge of your own well-being.

We will work using a structural integration set of 10 sessions that is rooted in the teaching of Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkreis, and Zen Master Tanouye Tenshin Rotaishi.  This work will release you from contractive patterning, softening and lengthening your muscles and tendons, opening all the joints, connecting from head to toe through an integrated myofascial network, and creating the conditions for broader sensory awareness.   We will also be working with exercises and phrases from Tai Chi and Ji Bin Gung that will set the changes in tendon length and efficient movement patterns into your nervous system.

What I am seeking in pursuing Chinese Internal Martial arts and the healing corrective arts is multidimensional strength, longevity, and an ever growing connectivity.  Sensory awareness is a fun and endless journey that requires patience, meditation, and daily practice.  

Becoming connected requires learning to move in a different way.  We will learn how to engage the fascia matrix from head to toe and gain a sense of fullness.  By lessening the use of contracting individual muscles or groups we will learn to live and breath using the entire body in an open lengthening manner.  

Schedule: Friday 3-9pm
