Touch is one of our most ancient healing traditions. In every culture and time touch has healed and soothed. At Crossings, massage and bodywork are honored for the significant role they play in preventing disease, easing discomfort, and restoring health.
Our practitioners offer an incredibly rich diversity of traditions and techniques. From Traditional Massage to Structural/Energetic work to Psycho-Spiritual approaches, there is a practitioner or style of work to meet you.
No matter which tradition/practitioner you choose, each is rooted in time honored healing principles:
- human beings are a unified whole with unique qualities
- any form of physical and/or energetic touch has the capacity to effect body, mind and spirit
- movement towards integration and wholeness is often the most effective approach at relieving underlying distress and pain
What will a Bodywork or Massage session be like?
Crossings bodywork practitioners are all highly seasoned clinicians in multiple approaches to healing the body.
You can expect that your practitioner will welcome and greet you in a manner that sets you at ease. As you settle into the room, you’ll be given time to settle yourself, to ask any questions you might have, and to begin to develop a mutual understanding of your goals, your wishes, and desires with your practitioner. They will also want to get to know you a bit. Questions regarding your health history, your social history are normal.
At some point you’ll be invited to the treatment table. Comfort on the table is a priority, and that may entail different pillow supports or blankets or degree of clothing.
Touch is a critical human need and safe touch is experienced by each person uniquely. Crossings practitioners have subtle and richly seasoned skills to adjust their contact with you so that your experience is safe, and deeply nourishing. You may choose from a variety of massage offerings available to you.
