Are you taking new Massage Therapy clients?
I am taking new massage therapy clients on a case by case basis. I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2004. Email me to set up a free 15 minute phone consultation to discuss your situation and see if it is a good fit, firstname.lastname@example.org. Or simply schedule yourself online on the "Scheduling" page under the service "Massage/Feldenkrais combination". My massage therapy sessions include at least a little Feldenkrais or Acupressure for optimal results. The Feldenkrais Method and Soul Lightening Acupressure are deeply calming and can bring profound change. Why the name True North Healing?
North according to the earth's axis. Different from compass north. To move forward in the right direction.
Why the geese?
Geese totem are a symbol of following one's inner compass. Geese also symbolize a strong connection between mental faculties and movement, as in flying tightly in formation during migration. The mind/movement connection ties in with Feldenkrais, as Feldenkrais is based in neurological connections between the brain and movement.
