Peace of Mind Bodywork

Massage Therapist in Berkeley, CA
Massage Therapist in Berkeley, CA Too often we get trapped by labels ("fibromyalgia", "sciatica", "rotator cuff", "plantar fasciitis", etc.). While labels can help us understand, they are also limiting. They bring us the comfort of definition but are not a cure in themselves. Healing can only come from within your own body. Myofacial Release, as developed by John F. Barnes, works to augment your own body's healing by releasing your muscular and fascial restrictions. This works on its own and in consort with other treatments. How do I treat you? First by listening to you and feeling your body's tensions and restrictions. Next I use therapeutic touch to find and release your muscular and fascial restrictions. Finally by educating you with what I have seen and felt then teaching you ways that you can help your healing continue. You deserve to be treated as the individual you are. During a session, I treat you, not just your symptoms and diagnosis.

Peace of Mind Bodywork
read moreMyofascial release massage therapy is the gentle release of tension in your muscles and fascia. When you are traumatized through injury, surgery, repetitive stress or illness, muscles and fascia can become rigid and binding. Your symptoms and diagnosis are the starting point of a journey of releasing your body's tension and pain.
About Us
read moreI bring an understanding both as a therapist and as a client to my work. It is because of the pain and finally the hope and rehabilitation that I went through that I am a therapist today. Most of the clients I treat regularly have suffered from some type of chronic pain. There are as many causes as there are clients, as everyone is unique. I treat clients privately in my Berkeley office, and one afternoon a week I work at North Oakland Chiropractic Clinic, treating patients with William Ruch, DC.

I will also evaluate what I am seeing, how you are standing, sitting, moving or holding yourself. We all have patterns of holding ourselves in space and those patterns can indicate restrictions in your fascial system. At all times during your treatment session, you are in control. If at any time you would like me to stop treatment, simply say "halt".
