Dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.

Bodywork Offerings at Black Rock Yoga

Deep Bodywork™  by Kerstin Santa

Enjoy specialized treatment? In addition to 20 years experience in Swedish Massage, Kerstin has been studying Deep Bodywork™ for the past 7 years at Esalen, the world-renowned healing arts institute in Big Sur, CA . This modality is truly the best of sports & spa massage, characterized by blending the therapeutic potency of focused depth work with the soothing qualities of traditional Swedish treatments. Profound relaxation is encouraged as hands or elbows slowly glide over the surface of your skin while expertly applied pressure allows deeper patterned tension to release. This combination creates a holistic method that not only addresses the muscles, but also restores clarity to the mind, a state often lost through physical injury, emotional trauma, and the everyday stresses of life.

Deep Bodywork™, applied slowly, is one of the most effective means available for alleviating acute and chronic pain, helping clients to overcome stubborn, seemingly intractable physical conditions. Deep Bodyworkers are few and far between here on the East Coast - come experience the results of this highly effective modality for yourself!
