Understanding your session
A brief overview of my work:
The foundation for my practice is an eclectic system of massage techniques created and taught to me (as an apprentice) by the late Lauren Berry, RPT, and Structural Engineer.
The Lauren Berry Method® of Corrective Massage recognizes that every individual component in the body is essential and has an optimum natural position and relationship to all of the 'parts' of body. These relationships can be disrupted and knocked 'out-of-balance' via trauma, adaptation, compensation, etc.
These unique manual therapy procedures address the role of soft tissue distortions and 'corrects' the protective adaptations that are a component in almost all pain and functional problems.
One of the basic premises within this amazingly effective approach is found in respecting and re-establishing the body’s ability to maintain 'Homeostasis'.
Corrective work throughout the body has an enhanced opportunity to be effective and long lasting when core musculature is in a balanced state.
As a result, following a session that encourages the core musculature towards holding a balanced state, other areas of the body will begin to adapt.
This can create soreness during the adaptation process.
After your session
I highly recommend visiting and practicing the stretches within the “Core Balance stretching”
It normally takes 24 to 48 hours minimally, sometimes as much as a week for the body to regain its balance and the soreness to work itself out. An unbalanced core didn’t happen to you overnight and it will take same time to correct it. Take responsibility for yourself and follow the instructions. Did I mention walking?
My work usually takes a minimum of two appointments. However, if your situation is severe and/or long- standing, it may require a series of treatments, for example, 4 to 6 sessions in order for the body to hold core balance.
