A place to unwind….Your body is intelligent and has the ability to self-correct. This is what science calls homeostasis; the bodies strives for balance. However, the body can get stuck during this balancing process. Using manual therapies sometimes light touch, a dialog is created between your body and the therapist. Giving a nudge to redirect blockages and restrictions in the body allowing for healing.
We all have experienced the natural ability of the body to heal when we let a cut or a cold heal “by itself”, for instance. However, sometimes the body cannot fully heal. In such cases the body choses the next best solution and compensation sets in. Compensation is the strategy that your body resorts to in order to cope with a difficult situation. It can be as simple as putting more weight on your right foot when the left one is hurting or a very subtle shift that you don’t even notice. Your body compensates so you can continue your life without ever having to knowledge of this. It all just happens naturally. Compensation, however, represents a burden on your body, which it gladly takes on as much as possible, for you to continue being you: active and creative, simply awesome!
