Integrative Massage Therapy -

 

Welcome to my website, and to my office in the beautiful outskirts of Litchfield, CT.   My work is a form of deep and integrative structural massage, based on Structural Therapy/ Hoshino Therapy modalities.   The focus of my work is to alleviate musculo-skeletal pain and improve function and performance.   A session can also be deeply relaxing and later, energizing.

I systematically and comprehensively work the entire body, focusing on muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue to restore tissue resilience and function. This promotes the body's ability to heal itself, returning the body to a pain free, flexible and resilient state.

I have significant clinical experience ( 20+ years) in alleviating many types of musculo-skeletal pain, dysfunction, and injury and in bringing comfort and control to my clients.

How it works:

Why Hoshino Therapy?   It is the form of clinical massage therapy that has had the most consistent and beneficial results for my clients.  It works!

I love this description of what I do:

The hand is our principle tool. With great precision, the hand applies the warmth and pressure necessary to reverse arthrosis in a particular muscle, tendon or ligament.
Only the warmth of the hand can revitalize and strengthen at the same time.
Only the hand can sense that is has applied the right amount of pressure.
Only the hand can sense when the muscle or tendon has been stimulated enough to produce its own heat

The underlying theory of the therapy is simple: Arthrosis is a degenerative joint condition characterized by hardening of the soft tissue, muscles, tendons (which connect muscle to bone), and ligaments (which connect bone to bone).  Arthrosis is caused by several factors, including physical inactivity, overuse of the muscles, poor posture and age. It is the underlying cause of a variety of musculoskeletal problems. Specific ailments as well as nonspecific problems such as numbness, tingling, shooting pain, muscle fatigue, and tension originate in this hardening and shortening of the soft tissue. The aim of Hoshino Therapy is to reverse the arthrosis and to restore the resiliency and flexibility of the soft tissue. When this is achieved, the painless, normal functioning of the body returns.
