Catching up: AC fixed, training through June 3, come on in for CST/TMJ work!

Our office air conditioning was not working over Memorial Day weekend. Last Thursday it got up to 81 in my office — a bit too warm and humid for giving or receiving bodywork. I asked several clients if they wanted to reschedule, and they all said yes.

It’s fixed as of Tuesday morning, thank goodness, because temperatures of 100 are expected next week.

It feels fine now. It also sounds fine. The condenser or compressor (whatever the part is that sits right outside my office window) makes a different noise, like an industrial strength exhalation. I definitely dig that! It’s wonderfully pleasant compared to the metallic grating sound it used to make. I’m grateful to everyone who played a role in getting it fixed.

I will be assisting at a training, TMJ and the Cranial Base, from Thursday, May 31, through Sunday, June 3. I’ve taken this class twice as a student since 2013, and I have used these skills a lot in my practice, including in a session today.

I look forward to assisting Christian Current teaching it and working with the students to learn and refine their skills. It’s more of an integrative technique than is taught in Upledger classes, drawing on massage,  myofascial release, trigger point therapy, orthopedic massage techniques, and the slow waiting and listening that is a signature for manual craniosacral therapy.

I will be available for sessions the rest of June, all of July, and part of August, so if you’re thinking of getting some bodywork, I’ll be ready and able starting Tuesday, June 5. I’m running a special for TMJ work this summer to practice and prepare for another Upledger Institute class in August, Somato-Emotional Release I. Please check my Welcome page for details.

May your summer be full of ease and joy!

Special offer: Craniosacral therapy for the upper jaw

You may be aware that I am continuing my training in craniosacral therapy, and in preparation for a class this August, I am offering a technique that you might benefit from. It’s craniosacral therapy for the hard palate, which uses a very light touch to listen to and adjust facial and upper jaw bones and soft tissues.
This technique is recommended for people who:
  • have had TMJ issues
  • have worn braces
  • have had bridges that cross the upper midline
  • have had teeth extracted (especially molars)
  • have experienced facial or head trauma
  • believe they could benefit

It would be my honor to work with you.
I am happy to offer you up to three sessions at a reduced rate of $70 per session. I’m offering up to three because some of you may want to experience a TMJ Relief session (which I’ve been offering for a few years), and you may also be interested in receiving a full-body craniosacral therapy session (which I’ve also been offering for a few years) before we do a hard palate session.
If you’d like to receive this work, please schedule one to three 60-minute sessions to take place before close of business on Friday, August 3, 2018.
May you experience great ease and joy!
