Appointment overview

 

What to wear.

Comfortable, lightweight, and stretchable clothing....similar to what you would wear for a Yoga class.You will be asked to remove your shoes.

Same clothing for the abdominal-visceral sessions? Yes.


Time.

The sessions last approximately 30-45 minutes, though they can go longer, especially your first session. Grant yourself time before and after your session. I highly recommend allowing yourself at least 10 minutes for walking after your session; the walking serves to solidify and continue the re-balancing process.
The walking component is important, so set the time aside.


Listen and record.

You can often aid the process by writing down your concerns using the intake form.
Include how those concerns 'talk' to you.
Sharp yelling, whispering, dull achy, time of day, after eating, while sitting, going upstairs, going downstairs, what parts are 'talking'....anything and everything is a clue. Listening to the clues our body sends us often aids us in preventing a whisper from becoming a scream.

With respect to covid.

♦ I have been vaccinated.
♦ I’ll provide fresh, clean coverings for the table and face cradle.
♦ Any indication of dis-ease: cough, chill, or temperature for either of us, call me and we reschedule.

 

I hope this information serves you and those you serve.

About Taums work.

Taum's manual therapy approach is rooted in a centuries-old therapy tradition that accepts the following:

  • The human body is engineered to move pain-free.
  • The human body often alerts us to dysfunction.
  • Pain is an alert. 
  • Indigestion is an alert.
  • The human body has an innate ability to 'repair and maintain' itself.
  • When presented with dysfunction, it is presumed this natural ability has been compromised via trauma, adaptation, repetitive stress, etc.
  • This innate ability is greatly influenced by the state of balance within the body's core region.
  • By returning core balance and reducing the restrictions that create imbalance, the body can get back to fixing and maintaining itself.
  • Oftentimes, a small improvement in balance can result in big rewards.

Consider: The common goal weaving through all therapies is to encourage stuck things to move.

The Fundamentals of Corrective Massage

 A Holistic approach.

It serves to remember that we, as therapists, do not heal anything. We simply recognize, respect, and support the body's 'built-in' healing ability.

  Corrective Massage recognizes the importance of balanced relationships, movements, and interactions throughout the body's soft tissues*. These relationships include natural anatomical positions and functionally balanced movement unimpeded by soft tissue tension.

  Functional balance implies that our soft tissues are working harmoniously to support pain-free, healthy movement and function. 

  In Taum's world of Corrective Massage, considering all bodily movement as an orchestration of soft tissue relationships is a fundamental principle and starting point.
These foundational principles include familiarity with
Equilibrium and Homeostasis. AKA Balance.

For example: Walking initially appears to be a simple activity. It actually involves a complex orchestration of numerous soft tissues.

A symphony of movement:

Our body requires over 200 of our 600 muscles to take one step. Of those 200, many serve as compensating adapters working in the background to keep us upright as we walk. While all our weight is on the right foot, those background muscles are adapting and counterbalancing so we do not fall over.

Each and every soft tissue plays a vital role in the body's ability to move and adapt to unbalanced tensions. 

Our bodies can adapt to those tensions. 

But only so far... 

Limping is an example of crossing the adaptation line.

  Pain serves as an alert that unbalanced tension has exceeded the body's ability to adapt, and corrective therapy is required.

  The foundational focus of this unique therapy is to interpret the alert and then identify and correct the soft tissue tensions and imbalances that have created those alerts.

  Corrective massage has repeatedly proven to be an efficient and effective method to reduce and relieve pain. 

I hope this information serves you and those you serve.
