My practice of Clinical Bodywork is the confluence of experience and intuition. Honed over 25 years, each session is a design of structural, functional, and energetic modalities uniquely crafted for optimal benefit. I draw upon lineages that I have had the privilege to certify in and teach, including Deep Tissue, Thai, Chi Nei Tsang (abdominal), and Myofascial. I’m continuously in awe of the human body and a student of it’s capacity to heal.
Bodywork is not a luxury, and Clinical Bodywork functions as one component of Essential Health: healing injuries, improving mobility, and preparing to use this one body for the rest of your life.
It is my life's work to support people in their healing process. After over 20 years of practice, I have found that consistent and dedicated attention brings optimal success. That is why I offer integrated packages to support your whole health through cumulative treatment.
The journey begins with a free 20-minute phone consult to assess your immediate needs and long term goals.
90 minutes: $545
90 minutes: $200
90 minutes: $850
Prior to seeing Carolyn for acupuncture, I had been in severe left shoulder pain due to a shoulder fracture. After only 3 acupuncture treatments I was able to eliminate a prescribed strong narcotic for pain relief. I continue to see Carolyn for weekly acupuncture treatments and occasional bodywork. There are no words that I can think of to describe the amazing healing and relief I have felt each time I have had a treatment by Carolyn. She is one of those healing practitioners that are the "Real Deal."
What are your safety protocols?
As an acupuncturist, I firmly maintain industry best practices for sterility and safety. In the age of COVID, these practices extend to include the following:
masks are worn at all times by practitioner and patient
all touch points and therapeutic surfaces are sanitized between patients
patients are requested to wash their hands before the start of their session
increased ventilation and HEPA air filters are standard
How does Clinical Bodywork help injury?
I offer a holistic approach to injury rehabilitation, rather than a band-aid. It’s like this: Injuries create physical stresses in the body. In an attempt to avoid pain, the body makes compensations in function, gait, and posture which can cause further issues. An Injury resulting from sudden impact, trauma, or requiring surgery will be processed in the nervous system as well. The emotional stress of managing pain takes a toll on sleep, digestion, metabolism, and more! My bodywork effectively unwinds physical tension, increases circulation, relieves pain, and re-educates the neuro-muscular pathways for better alignment and function while resetting the nervous system into a mode of healing and deep restoration.
I see you take insurance for acupuncture. Do you also take it for Clinical Bodywork?
I work out of network with the following insurances:
Anthem Blue Cross
Kaiser (w/ supplement)
Blue Cross/Shield FEP)
What are the benefits of doing a large package versus coming just once?
Our bodies are in a state of constant change: breaking down wastes and rebuilding healthy tissues. Even an ailment that appeared 'overnight' has likely been in the making for some time, given that we are wired to compensate and manage our imbalances until the body sends an undeniable signal (pain! discomfort!). For lasting results, the process needed to unwind holding patterns and uncover the myriad contributions to the current state of dis-ease is best addressed over successive sessions.
