Massage + Bodywork


Integrative Massage Therapy

Based on your needs, our skilled practitioners use the appropriate modality of healing touch to address your goals. Like a painter with a full spectrum of colors on their palette, we will combine a variety of valuable techniques to be as effective as possible. These techniques include: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point, Acupressure, Thai, Lomi Lomi, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, and Energy Work. The depth, intensity, and  rhythm will be specially catered to your unique body and mind.
 

Myofascial Release + Craniosacral Therapy

'Myo' refers to muscle, and 'fascial' refers to fascia, a form of dense connective tissue that forms the casing of the muscles and ALL other structures in the body. The fascia is a continuous network of fibers that connects the body seamlessly from head to toe, skin to bone, and macro to micro. By applying special principles and techniques, Myofascial Release will unlock restrictions in the fascial system at large, while Craniosacral Therapy deals with fascial restrictions surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Releasing the fascia will relieve you from chronic pain, and restore healthy form and function to your body and mind. 


Prenatal Massage

Expecting mothers will find tremendous benefit in receiving massage. Pregnancy comes with its aches and pains, and affects on mood and overall energy. Our practitioners, are trained in prenatal massage, and will help relieve musculoskeletal pain associated with pregnancy. Massage will also help to calm pregnancy related stress and anxiety, and bring balance to the emotions.
 

Thai Bodywork

This form of bodywork takes place on a floor mat, with the recipient clothed in something comfortable that allows for movement and stretching. The practitioner will use a sequence of rhythmic compression along the energy meridians, range of motion, and stretching, using his/her hands, forearms & elbows, knees, and feet as tools. Equally as effective as integrative massage, but with a greater emphasis on sustained pressure, movement and stretching, to enhance energy flow through the meridians of the body.

Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, derives its' name through a focus on awakening Kundalini energy through regular practice of meditation, breath work, chanting, and yoga postures. Kundalini energy sits at the base of the spine and when activated can have a transformative effect on the mind, body, and spirit. Kundalini Yoga works to create balance and awareness by utilizing the entire Chakra system. Through this ancient technology you will peel back the layers of the unconscious to discover your truth. 
 

 
 
 

south philadelphia
community Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a time-tested healing modality that has been used for millennia in the far east. By the strategic placement and manipulation of ultra-fine needles, the acupuncturist promotes the free flow of vital energy throughout the body systems. Though science has yet to uncover how exactly acupuncture works to create wellness in the body, recent high-quality research affirms its' effectiveness. Acupuncture can relieve pain, activate the immune system, improve organ function, and bring overall balance to the body and mind. Each acupuncturist treats their client using points in a number of locations on the body; while some points address overall constitution, others address specific regions of concern. 
 

We offer acupuncture treatments in collaboration with

OUR TEAM OF ACUPUNCTURISTS


>> Acupuncture Q & A

Q: What is acupuncture? A:  Acupuncture moves your body into a healing mode with the help of very thin, flexible, and sterile, single-use needles, which are inserted into "acupoints".

Q: What does it feel like? A: For many people, acupuncture looks and feels like serious relaxation. Many patients drift off to sleep during treatment. For others, it feels like a sense of heaviness or dull achiness at the location of the needles. Each person’s experience of needle sensation is slightly different.

Q: How does it work?  A: From an Eastern perspective, acupuncture promotes your body’s own self-healing properties to alleviate pain, to treat illness and to promote wellness. Chinese medicine sees the body as a microcosm of nature — a dynamic force constantly striving for balance. Acupuncture taps into that force and reminds the body to restore physiology and promote healing.

From a Western medical perspective, research indicates that acupuncture increases blood circulation and may mimic some of our body’s mechanisms for regulating and alleviating pain. 

 
 
 

meditation classes

 
 

For over two decades, Jeff Carreira has been practicing and teaching a unique form of meditation called The Practice of No Problem. This simple meditation technique has been used by thousands of people around the world in order that they might experience profound states of liberated awareness.

So many of us today suffer from fear, anxiety, and compulsive worry. These habits of self-concern consume our energy and keep us bound up so that we are unavailable to live fully.  When you practice this meditation you will discover that it is possible to consciously choose to be content. That means that no matter what happens, and no matter what you experience, you can allow it to be OK the way it is.

 
 

This is only the beginning -- through this practice, you can find a pathway to spiritual freedom and inner peace. Through this meditation, you can learn to embrace the way things already are, so that your energy is liberated, your attention is liberated, and you become profoundly available to experience everything as if for the first time. It is like being reborn into your own life.

PRIVATE TREATMENTS

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy-work that involves the laying of hands or hovering on the body in order to promote peace, stress reduction, relaxation and healing. Reiki can be translated to "life force energy" or Universal Life Energy.  The practitioner places their hands on or above vital regions of the body, and becomes like an open channel, for life force to flow into the recipient. An excellent non-invasive technique to release stress, and achieve balance of mind and body. When our life force energy is high, we are more likely to be happy and healthy.

Sound Journey

Sessions with Iron Gump are designed as a way for individuals to guide themselves into deeper recesses of their imaginations. Each Sound Journey is guided utilizing flutes, gongs, bells, guitar, voice, singing bowls and other vibrational instruments as well as some light massage on the hands feet and head.  These sessions are personally tailored to each person's desire to explore themselves deeper to begin to open or close the doorways of the spirit. An initial consultation is recommended but not a necessity as the first few minutes of each session can be used for discussion.

The work is energy sensitive, so please consider and understand that I will not be taking any dark from you, yet will be reminding you of where you may have placed your light. This is only acts as a part of the work that you may need to do to find that space your looking to be in or out of, so consider more than one answer to the questions you may have about your mind, body and spirit because there is not ONE answer - yet they all stem from the same source.
