An integrative, therapeutic model is designed to best suit the wellness needs of each individual client. A comprehensive variety of specialized techniques may be incorporated into any session, including Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Chinese Cupping, and Specific Injury Techniques. Clients may choose between Integrative Massage, which incorporates longer, fluid strokes for deeper relaxation, or Deep Tissue Massage, which targets specific areas for deeper, more technical work which would aid in alleviating chronic pain, regaining mobility and function, and/or rehabilitating from injury.
Thai yoga bodywork, or nuad boran, combines acupressure, stretching, massage, and assisted yoga techniques to relieve tension and enhance flexibility and range of motion. Clients can expect a series of stretches, performed fully clothed on a Thai yoga mat, that facilitate deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, enhanced blood circulation, improved body alignment, deeper breathing, and stimulation of internal organs. Thai massage also incorporates energy work, which dissolves blockages, deficiencies, and imbalances in the body to promote optimal health.
“Jin Shin Do” means “The Way of the Compassionate Spirit.” Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® uses gentle, yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal Body Focusing techniques, to help release “armoring” or chronic tension, balance the “Qi” or energy, and improve vitality. This clothes-on method helps relieve stress and trauma related problems. A unique synthesis of traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acupuncture and acupressure theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong (breathing and exercise techniques), Reichian segmental theory and principles of Ericksonian psychotherapy, Jin Shin Do® Acupressure was originated by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden.
Trauma-Informed Bodywork is a gentle, non-invasive and mindful integrative approach specifically tailored appropriately and individually for those with a trauma background. Dependent on the client's goals and the appropriate amount of therapeutic contact, trauma-informed bodywork may incorporate Somatic Experiencing® techniques, Jin Shin Do® Acupressure, Energy Balancing, and Integrative Massage Therapies. The Tula Mountain Bodywork approach relies on a genuine desire to understand your intentions, to intuitively nurture and facilitate your healing process, and to communicate with your body on an energetic and spiritual level.
