She has done a lot of work assisting clients with chronic holding patterns and trauma. When working with clients she employs training in acupressure, tui na, cranial sacral, and swedish techniques. Sessions with her tread the fine line between the physical and the energetic and often result in a journey into a deep parasympathetic state. Eliza is passionate about self care and brings a background in herbal medicine, women’s health, meditation and breathing techniques to assist you when you’re not on the table.

She strives to develop lasting relationships with those who are invested in their own long term health and looking to foster more complete awareness within themselves.

Eliza is a native of the Bay Area and feels a deep connection with the oak covered hillsides, bay breezes, and secret canyons.

Jessica

Jessica understands massage as an integral part to everyone’s preventative and complimentary health care practice. Her particular area of interest is how massage engages our rest and digest (parasympathetic nervous system) response to allow our bodies to heal themselves.

An accomplished artist and animal lover, in 2014 Jessica received her certification in Ashtanga and Yin yoga, which jump started her into the path of natural healing.

 She later went on to become certified in massage therapy and has worked in Chicago area hotel spas and chiropractic clinics before relocating back to California. Jessica incorporates relaxation, deep tissue, myofascial, trigger point and reflexology into her highly personalized massage. She is certified in prenatal and oncology massage, on her way to become a preferred practitioner with the Society for Oncology Massage. Special considerations apply for oncology massage including gentle massage and modifications for impacted lymph nodes. A thorough intake is necessary to ensure proper safety precautions.

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: Substitute therapist. Call for schedule.
