Undoing Wellness Culture

When you hear the term Massage Therapy, what comes to mind?

Luxury? For the wealthy? Not for people like me?

Let's remove these associations and allow its healing properties to spread to all of our community! Massage + bodywork are a form of social justice and healing that is a necessity for the whole.

 

Massage Therapy is an effective and safe way to reduce the effects of traumatic stress and felt pain, while increasing creativity and healing.  I provide sessions that offer rhythmic waves to the body, which helps clients gently settle into their center and take a moment to radically rest. Find your natural rhythmic flow through customized sessions that leave you feeling grounded and whole, living into who you truly are. I highly encourage the use of self-care activities at home to maintain a well balanced mind, body and spirit.

 

Contact us to discuss a healing plan for your stress reduction.

Also check out our Karmic Bloom fund that supports folks who need to receive services and may not be able to pay for them. This fund is a pay it forward. 25% of proceeds feed this fund from KARMIC BLOOM days and co-working + sanctuary hours at Sahaja S P A C E.

Sliding Scale Model $70 - $135

What is Sliding Scale?

 

Sliding Scale is a payment model that supports our community in a collective way. The highest of the scale is for individuals that are paying for themselves and paying it forward for their fellow community member to receive healing services. The lowest of the scale is for individuals that need to pay a reduced rate based on a number of factors.

What to Expect?

During life of COVID-19, we are required to wear masks at all times.

Each session begins with a client intake, discussing your general health and goals to determine if there are any contraindications to massage. You are fully draped during your session, and only the area of the body being worked is exposed to maintain your comfort. If anything becomes uncomfortable at any time please do not hesitate to let me know immediately.

 

Please dress for your comfort level while on the massage table. The use of oils, cream and/or lotion will be used on the skin to allow a gentle glide. Sessions range from 60-90 minutes in session length. This is the length of time we spend together. Hands on may differ based on needs of each client.

 

After your session, a post-session will take place where we discuss any observations and self-care activities in between sessions.

**No one is turned away for financial constraints! Our community fund allows us to offer a sliding scale option for those with financial hardships!

Karmic Bloom - How y'all feelin'?

As we continue to navigate our new ways of living and becoming, let's check in with our bodies. How are you feeling?

 

Karmic Bloom, a day of karma practice, happens the second Wednesday of each month from 3:00 - 6:00pm! What does this mean for all of us? It's my practice, as a community member, to provide healing touch to as many people as possible.  On these Wednesdays I provide mini sessions (30 minutes) on a sliding scale of $25 - $50.   All you have to do is schedule an appointment and take time to relax. 25% of proceeds go into the Rhythmic Bloom scholarship fund for students to access yoga + massage services, and continuing education courses.

 

Our Next Karmic Bloom is March 10th at Sahaja Space Durham.

Covid - 19

We're experiencing uncertain times with COVID-19. Massage therapy is a hands on experience and we are slowly easing back into providing in person services at this time. Find me at Durham Bodywork and Sahaja SPACE for a massage session.

 

We all need to feel more compassion for ourselves and those we are staying home with. If you need gentle and comforting touch schedule a FREE consultation to see if in person or online services are right for you!
