Most of us have far more potential for abundant aliveness than we know.Habitual ways of holding or moving our bodies, as well as tension created by stress, overuse, trauma or illness, can restrict our ability to experience the full richness of life.Conscious, caring bodywork can be a powerful tool for helping us rediscover the fullness of who we are and participate more fully in the life we live.
Whether your interest is in stress or pain relief, health building after surgery or illness; emotional support during a challenging life transition; recovery, self-discovery, or any of the many other reasons people seek out bodywork, Stuart's aim is to attend to the whole person - body, mind and heart - in a synergistic approach to hands-on healing.

General Benefits Postural/Body Integration Acute trauma, chronic overuse, or the accumulated effects of poor postural habits can cause imbalances in the musculo-skeletal system which can effect the whole body, down to the very way it feels to move and be in the world. Full-Spectrum Touch can help to rebalance the body by lengthening contracted muscles,enhancing self-awareness and by increasing your overall sense of ease and comfort in your body.

Full-Spectrum Touch Massage & Body Therapy can help improve your performance as well as speed your recovery from injury or overuse.Clients have included athletes of all kinds as well as professional musicians, actors, dancers and artisans.
Centering/Re-Balancing Massage & Body Therapy can help you stay "on course" through the intensity of a demanding work schedule or a challenging life transition - or create movement when your life feels stuck.Sessions can help you finda peaceful center from which to more clearly sense your life and to tap the stillness at the source of all balanced movement - as well as give you tools and support to get there on your own.
