Develop physical awareness and reduce chronic suffering with customized bodywork sessions at Ritual. We offer both treatment style and relaxation work using a variety of modalities including myofascial release, deep tissue manipulation, and meridian related techniques such as acupressure.
Guided breath work is an important aspect of these sessions. Breathing deeply unlocks the relationship between our bodies and our thoughts while enriching our ability to integrate and move with change. With our breath, we can see life's shifting nature echoed in our body, and we become more comfortable surfing the unceasing current of experience.
Energetic modalities - including craniosacral therapy, chakra balancing, and reiki - are interwoven into all massage sessions and used exclusively upon request. These gentle forms of bodywork soothe the nervous system and relax the body into a deeper state of recovery. Energywork asserts intentional less can do exponential more. It suggests our physical bodies are a reflection of our inner experience and beliefs.
Subtle bodywork takes a top down approach to healing. Rather than working deeply in the flesh of the physical body, energetic work attempts to set a resonance or tone in the nervous system. Energywork sessions are most fully received by those who are sensitive to their experience and open to subtlety. They require some active participation on the part of the recipient.
