Transformative Bodywork

Transformative bodywork is more than just relaxing.

Massage therapy is great, but even though it feels really good, the benefits often don’t extend further than a day or two off the treatment table. 

Bodywork with Katerina is a different story entirely.

Yes, you will feel relaxed.

But the treatment goes far beyond that. 

Because the mind and body are part of the same whole, Katerina is able to use bodywork to create lasting changes in your body, mind, and spirit.

 

Already equipped with intuitive and strong hands, Katerina has spent more than a decade training with master practitioners like Dr. Sheila Murphy, D.C., Dr. Bob Quinn, LAc, and Carol Gray in order to refine her bodywork and perception skills.

She has a knack for pin-pointing imbalances that others often overlook.

By using her hands to sculpt the layers of your body as though it were clay, Katerina is able to access the deepest layers within you to help you release long-held patterns that no longer serve you.

Katerina’s method of bodywork is truly transformative.

By coming to bodywork sessions with Katerina, you’ll be teaching your body how to heal itself.

Combining techniques like myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, sotai, shiatsu, and visceral manipulation, bodywork sessions with Katerina peel away the layers of stress from your body, mind, and spirit, so you can emerge as the person you most want to be. 

Over the course of a few sessions, your body is retrained into new, healthier patterns.

Patients often report that their chronic headaches reduce in frequency, intensity, and duration.

Musculoskeletal pain melts away.

Digestive issues resolve.

Insomnia is replaced by deep and restorative sleep.

And as you start to feel better, you will find your emotions shift too.

You’ll begin to feel less stressed, less reactive, more at ease and in control.

Your relationship with the world around you will take on a whole new light.

People may begin to comment that something in you seems to have changed.

You appear happier, lighter, and may even develop a noticeable glow.

In other words, this is more than a massage.

It’s the beginning of a transformation.

Katerina loves to work with infants & children too!

The world would be a better place if everyone had the opportunity to relieve tension before it turns into pathological patterns.

Bodywork in early life can do that.

Katerina combines gentle bodywork techniques like craniosacral therapy with shonishin treatments to help infants and children begin life as vibrantly as possible. 

Bodywork FAQ

Is bodywork the same thing as massage?

Massage is a type of bodywork, but bodywork is not always massage.

While it can still be relaxing, bodywork has the overarching intention of restructuring and healing the body, whereas most massage therapy is only aimed at relieving tension.

Do I have to remove my clothes?

No. Clothes stay on for bodywork sessions with Katerina.

Can you explain the different types of techniques you use?

Gladly!

Myofascial release involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach -using no more pressure than the weight of a nickel- that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance

Visceral manipulation evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments.

Sotai is a Japanese form of movement therapy that works with breath and moves the body in the direction of comfort rather than pain. Gentle resistance is offered mid-movement to help to release tension and re-educate the body into healthier patterns.

Shiatsu is a form of Japanese massage therapy that uses pressure and rhythm along the meridians to increase the healthy flow of Qi (Life-Force/Prana).

Katerina combines all of these techniques as well as some that are nameless that she has learned from her teachers to help your body heal, restore optimal function, and leave you feeling wonderful. 

Can I Combine Bodywork Sessions with Acupuncture?

Yes. In fact, almost all acupuncture sessions include some form of bodywork.

However, in most cases Katerina encourages patients to invest in at least one bodywork-only session per month in order to allow for a more focused treatment.
