Bodywork sessions with Halle Clarke seamlessly combine Neuro-muscular Therapy(NMT), Cranio-sacral Therapy(CST) and Polarity Therapy. Clients are generally looking to address an ongoing area of physical pain, tension or discomfort. These sessions are geared towards clients wanting to address an ongoing area of physical pain, tension or discomfort or just looking to unwind and relax. Sessions often begin with the deeper work of NMT to release and bring blood flow to the affected area. Then, both CST and energetic polarity work are employed to balance the nervous system, encourage relaxation and enable the body to respond to the work. Bodywork sessions are done fully clothed. Shorts and shirts with loose collars should be worn so that each area of the body can be easily accessed.
Neuro-muscular Therapy is a specialized style of bodywork in which, static pressure is delivered to release soft tissue tension associated with chronic pain or discomfort.
The Cranio-Sacral Rhythm is a subtle, pulse-like wave created by the fluids surrounding the brain and spinal cord. With Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Halle uses a gentle, non-invasive touch and a meditative awareness to connect with this rhythm, which supports the flow of energy to “blocked” areas of the body. By restoring balance to the central nervous system, all other systems and structures within the body are enhanced and revitalized as well. The technique is also helpful for stiffness and pain especially in the neck, shoulders and low back areas.
Polarity Therapy draws on the basic idea that our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being are dependent on the ability of our electromagnetic energy to flow freely throughout the body. When this current is blocked, it disrupts the fluidity of the energy flow, which can result in tension, pain and illness. A gentle and natural technique, Polarity Therapy seeks to eliminate energy restrictions to restore the energy field and, therefore, the body to a state of balance and health.
