STRUCTURAL BODYWORK (SB)
In brief: SB uses direct myofascial release as its application method. A certified KMI structural bodyworker has been trained to read and detail your structure so that an individual session can be planned. The therapist will target areas that have been held in an elongated or shortened pattern, thereby giving space for the system to function at a more optimum level.

Remedial massage is used to treat both chronic and acute muscular-skeletal dysfunction by applying oil to the skin and manipulating the soft tissue, with the intention of relieving sore and tender areas. Often used to maintain good health and keep the tissues hydrated and supple.
Therapeutic massage is generally used to maintain well-being, by allowing the person on the table to relax and have general aches and pains soothed away. Pressure varies according to your preference and the practitioners sensitivity to what is being felt by their hands during the treatment
STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION (SI)
S.I. is a method of body work that is ideally suited to addressing chronic health issues that are held or brought about by poor alignment and movement. Chronic pain and compromised movement is often a result of dysfunctional and bound connective tissue.
The aim of a series of S.I. treatments is to create more space and better organization of the tissues to allow free and painless movement

In brief: Bowen Therapy uses small, light moves over the skin to balance the body and assist with common muscular-skeletal dysfunction.

CLINICAL SOMATICS &
Dance Movement Therapy is the therapeutic use of expressive movement to further the physical, emotional, cognitive,and social functioning of a person. Dance movement therapists combine the elements of dance, movement systems, creative processes, and psychological and scientific theories, to address the specific needs of groups and individuals. Working within the somatic field means the therapist educates a person to sense their internal physical perception and experience, which can be the start of change within the nervous system. Christie uses Hanna Somatic routines and various movement experientials to assist a person to overcome emotional difficulties such as anxiety, and to assist with pain management.
