Antonina Bodywork

Modalities Incorporated

Antonina integrates multiple modalities into a session. Each session is unique, and tailored to work within the willingness your tissue offers that day to release tension. The willingness of muscle tissue to accept the work varies from day-to-day and is dependent upon many things—the level of physical pain you are feeling, your stress level, your energy level, and your body's hydration level are just a few. We work with what your body is willing to do each time you come in, and each session builds upon the next to ensure your goal is achieved, and that the change is long-lasting.

Deep Tissue

The purpose of deep tissue work is to release the restrictions in connective tissue and fascia that are impacting movement of the joints and the ability to maintain good posture. Many people think that deep tissue work need be painful to be effective, but quite the opposite is true. The intent of the work is therapeutic, and the focus is very specific.    (more info)

Sports Massage

Many elite athletes consider sports massage an essential part of their training and recovery routine. They report that a sports massage helps them train more effectively, improve performance, prevent injury, and recovery quickly.   (more info)

Pelvic Floor Work

The pelvic floor, like the rest of our body, is influenced by misalignment of the skeletal structure and imbalances of muscle tone and tension. The pain and problems that accompany these imbalances often reduce one's ability to enjoy the pleasures of life, and can bring chronic pain that impacts a person as they move through their daily activities—and even more so when trying to exert oneself with exercise.

My work is not internal, and also usually involves musculature that is not part of the pelvic floor itself. The best results will come if the bodywork we do is complemented by your work with a physical therapist who specializes in the pelvic floor.
