Biofield Tuning: Energy Flush

Now there’s an efficient method to disperse stagnant energy in your biofield which often is the cause of chronic pain in our arms, shoulders, legs and hips.

Biofield Tuning is a simple yet powerful method for shifting the rhythms and patterns of the body’s electrical system. The coherent input of a tuning fork gently supports the body in recognizing and correcting its own vibrational imbalances. Our job, as practitioners, is to simply find the noise and resistance in the biofield and stay with it until the body auto corrects.

*Allow 45-60 minutes.

PLEASE NOTE: Although the method is simple, it is also very powerful. Because of this it is contraindicated in certain conditions: if a person is wearing a pacemaker, is pregnant, or is very ill or has cancer.

Biofield Tuning: Clearing Your Emotional Energy

Biofield Tuning is a unique process designed to shift patterns & rhythms of the electromagnetic energy that flows through & around your body. It is not stress that kills us but how we respond to stress. Being grounded & centered is the cure for much of what ails us. Using tuning forks as a vibrational tool we are able to identify events in your life when you reacted with an intense emotion such as fear or anger. These charged memories literally lock us into restrictive patterns of limited response to life’s daily challenges. The work is done with you fully-clothed while lying face-up on a massage table. 90 minutes is needed and one or two follow-up sessions may be necessary.

PLEASE NOTE: Biofield Tuning can sometimes produce what is known as a Herxheimer Reaction, also known as detoxification. This sometimes lasts 1-3 days and in rare instances can last up to two weeks. Typical symptoms of “cleansing” can be: headaches, sore throat, sweating, chills, fever, body aches, joint & muscle pain, nausea, general malaise and other flu-like symptoms. Cancer and other complex illnesses, pregnancy and pacemakers are contraindicated.

CranioSacral Re-balancing

CranioSacral Therapy works with the subtle bones of the skull and sacrum to balance the cerebrospinal fluid which influences many bodily functions. A very gentle approach to re-balancing soft tissue structures often compromised by injury or trauma, it has proven to be very effective in the treatment of chronic pain, migraine headaches, low-back pain, TMJD, and other stress-related symptoms.

Usually only one or two sessions are needed to help make a significant change.

Deep Tissue Massage

Quite different from “a Therapeutic Massage with Extra Pressure,” our Deep Tissue Massage focuses on releasing muscle restrictions (adhesions) and re-balancing structural tension (holding patterns) running through the several layers of soft tissue (muscle). Deep Tissue Massage requires a much slower pace than our Therapeutic Massage and more than one session is usually necessary for better results and/or resolution. Very effective if you have strained a muscle resulting in limited (and possibly painful) movement.

IMPORTANT: While it is not unusual for some people to experience bruising and pain for several days following treatment it does not happen to everyone. Soon the pain will decrease and you will begin to experience a range of movement you haven’t had for a very long while. Eventually, that every-day pain thing will be just a distant memory.

PLEASE NOTE: 30-MINUTES WILL ONLY ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO WORK ON ONE REGION OF THE BODY (muscles of your thigh, calf, forearms or hands, etc.). One hour is highly recommended for your first session.

Fascial Stretch Therapy

Fascial Stretch Therapy is a new cutting-edge technology based on the most recent scientific understanding of how the body organizes itself for movement. Therapist uses a combination of traction, PNF stretching, and conscious breathing – all of which, when combined, lengthens the fascia and not just your muscles. This unique process makes use of multiple planes of movement which targets the entire joint resulting in maximum flexibility, increased power, speed and agility for athletes. For injury recovery and rehabilitation FST is a powerful therapeutic tool for reducing recovery time.

More information on FST can be seen in the following videos:

NOTE: Sessions are performed fully-clothed (dress for yoga or gym is recommended).

Initial Structural Assessment

AN INJURY IS CONSIDERED TO BE CHRONIC WHEN EITHER PAIN OR OTHER DISCOMFORTING SYMPTOMS ARE STILL PRESENT AFTER 3 MONTHS.

This preliminary session is essential in order to better understand your body’s current need to be so guarded, and for us, together, to conceptualize a goal of improved structural balance resulting in less, or eventually, no pain at all.

Includes a detailed discussion about the nature of the injury, a preliminary structural assessment, some palpation, some passive range-of-movement, and some massage.

Required before any structural bodywork such as Rehab Manual Therapy, Rehab Myotherapy, and Structural Integration.

Integrative Bodywork combines several healing bodywork modalities with therapeutic massage. Some of those modalities might include: CranioSacral therapy, Trigger Point therapy, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Positional Release, Neuromuscular Facilitation, Reiki, and acupressure. Very effective in treating some chronic pain issues such as sciatica, acute injuries such as whiplash, sports-related injuries, carpal tunnel and other repetitive stress injuries (RSIs), plus physical traumas such as accidents involving falling-down, bicycling, and automobiles.

Massage for Children

FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18

The pressures of school academics and intramural sports sometimes takes a toll on a child’s body. Stress can affect a child’s ability to sleep soundly and/or stay focused on daily lessons. Athletic injuries can occur at any age and often do. Soccer, for example, requires a great deal of running which can result in very tight ITBands and calf muscles.

A 30-minute massage is recommended for a young child when too much stress is suspected as being a causative factor in the child’s health, or a longer 45 minute session when the issue is a chronic one.

PLEASE NOTE: A PARENT’S PRESENCE IS REQUIRED.

Oncology Massage

People in all phases of the journey through cancer can benefit from healing touch and carefully tailored massage therapy. Oncology Massage can help manage symptoms and side effects of cancer and cancer treatment, including pain, nausea, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety and depression. Most of all, oncology massage is a nurturing experience designed to restore your sense of positive touch and an integrated body which helps encourage your body’s healing process.

MTW’s style of Oncology Massage incorporates gentle strokes, energy work and guided meditation to encourage deep relaxation of the body, mind and spirit. The mental and emotional stresses of dealing with cancer can begin with diagnosis, wax and wane throughout treatment, and sometimes linger even after a full recovery. Massage is a way of taking time out to care for your whole self during this often grueling, always individual process.

There are only a few instances where touch is contraindicated for a cancer patient, but your therapist will work with you and your doctor to learn exactly what is the right level of massage for you at any point during your treatment and recovery.

Shamanic Healing

Before scheduling your initial appointment, please call our office at 617-684-4000 to speak with the therapist.

An ancient form of energetic healing which works on the luminous energy field that surrounds every living body. The Inca Shamans believe that within this energy field is contained a template which animates all of the important details of our lives such as what kind of diseases we will inherit, how we heal, how we age, the same stories & conditions that get played out over and over again in our lives, and so on.

These templates are called imprints which is nothing more than encoded information that is recorded within the luminous energy field, and is similar to the way that information in the form of software programs are stored on a hard disk on your computer. As such, we are able to erase those imprints of dis-order and dis-ease due to past events.

Sports Massage

If you’re a runner, we are going to concentrate on your legs; if you’re a swimmer, we will spend more time on your upper body and hips; a cyclist, your hip flexors, quads, ITB, calves and upper trapezius will likely be targeted.

A sports massage therapist may use their forearm or the palm of their hand to bear down on the muscles in your legs and back to separate and relax them and their fingers to put direct pressure on a muscle in spasm, which can be painful but will reduce your pain later. Along with massage we’ll combine deep tissue massage and stretching when necessary to help maximize your muscles’ potential.

For more severe or chronic pain you should consider our Therapeutic Massage.

Therapeutic Cupping

Therapeutic Cupping helps to relieve chronic pain by releasing extremely tight restrictions by combining aspects of deep tissue & myofascial massage. It is based upon a technique used by acupuncturists for thousands of years to relieve congestion and stagnation in the body. Our Therapeutic Cupping is a modernized technique using controlled suction through a hand pump and BPA-free cups.

Cupping effectively draws stagnant inflammation and toxins from the body to be properly disposed through the lymphatic system. Cupping is very relaxing and the perfect choice for when your muscles have become so tight that even deep tissue massage is unable to release the accumulated tension.

You’ll also receive added benefits of increased ranged of motion, tissue hydration, and fluid circulation for healthy cells.

Therapeutic Massage

PLEASE NOTE: 1-hour is recommended when it’s your initial session.
