A holistic, integrative approach to therapy, focused on creating body-centered awareness.
THE BALANCING CENTER
The Balancing Center is about looking at self-care as a balancing act. It is about establishing harmony between stress and well-being. If we understand massage therapy as self-maintenance rather than luxury, it is easy to make time for it without guilt. Self-care is an essential factor to living a life that feels manageable.
Touch therapy is important for heightening our sense of physical awareness. How often do we take inventory of tightness and discomfort? I strive to help my clients connect to themselves.
