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. 


CBD Oil massage

CBD (cannabanoid) oil, naturally extracted from the hemp plant, acts within the body's endocannabinoid system. This helps reduce inflammation, protects neurons, promotes bone growth and relieves anxiety and pain. Combining this oil with an integrative massage is an effective way to absorb the oil's benefits through our muscles, tissues and circulatory system.

You can add CBD oil to any massage for $10!
We also offer complimentary cupping and hot compress, simply ask your massage therapist!

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. 

 
 

Ayurvedic Holistic Health

Haylee offers Ayurvedic holistic health counseling for people living in the 21st century. She offers practical preventative care that increases energy, immunity, and vitality. She understands how difficult it is to commit to a lifestyle change, which is why her services are achievable and affordable.

Haylee is one of the only affordable holistic health counselors in Philadelphia using the life science of Ayurveda, combined with a modern perspective that fits into a 21st Century lifestyle.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of healing which is translated to mean "the science of life." According to Ayurveda, everything is made up of a unique combination of five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space.  Ayurveda seeks to maintain an equilibrium of these five elements within each individual.  

In our consultations together we will map out an individual process for you that includes taste (diet), sound (mantra), sight (color therapy), smell (aromatherapy) and touch (massage).

Ayurveda is a lifelong journey of learning, balance and healing.  My goal for is to provide you with practical and achievable steps that you can take yourself between sessions.  Working together should feel like consistent and manageable progress towards our overall goals together. 

I chose to study Ayurveda because it is an ancient science that has proven to work; it just requires commitment. There are a lot of fads and quick-fixes that can be effective but don’t last.  What she aims to offer is a continuous dynamic relationship to one’s own health that requires self analysis and sensitivity to the natural world around us.


Haylee Warner, HHC, RYT is an ayurvedic holistic health counselor,  movement & meditation instructor and corporate wellness provider based in Philadelphia.

In her sessions your will build a map of simple and effective changes to re-pattern old habits so that you can live with energy, motivation and vitality.  Her goal is to empower you to clear the haze and stop compromising your best self!

Haylee began practicing yoga in 2007.  She found yoga to be an incredible personal movement experience, separate from how she experienced movement in codified forms of dance. It slowly became a regular grounding practice for herself, and decided to pursue a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2013 from The Yoga Garden, Philadelphia, PA. Since then she has received a Pediatric Yoga Certification from Summit Education, completed a 150-hour Advanced Training from Palo Santo Wellness Boutique, and in January 2017 she took a foundation course in Trauma Sensitive Yoga through Transformation Yoga Project.  In 2017 she decided to take the next step in her healing journey and received her Holistic Health Counseling Certification at Ayurveda's World, NYC under the direction of Dr. Naina Merbella.

 

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.

Class Descriptions

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. 
 

In our Hatha Yoga this class, postures are practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body. Breathing techniques and meditation are also integrated. You can expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement. Full-body relaxation and balance are the goals, as we make a full circuit of the body’s range of motion with standing postures, twists, backbends, forward folds, and hip openers. All bodies and all levels of experience welcome!

MST (Meditative Strength Training) is a unique practice of Gong Fu and Yoga mobility, blending flexibility and strength conditioning. MST's primary goal is "moving meditation." This is developed by the synergistic interaction of mind, body and breath. The practice creates an awareness that is expressed internally from the mind and externally through the body. The mind defines the internal understanding as the body becomes its outward expression. For all levels and all walks of life.  
Paid with cash or venmo the day of the class.
