Research has shown that massage therapy is no longer just for relaxation. The health benefits offered by therapeutic massage can have a positive, lasting impact on your health and lifestyle.
Christine Steward offers Full Body Fascial Facilitation which is a relaxing and restorative therapy. This technique supports the whole body and its delicate, inter-connected mechanisms to restore the synchronicity of motion between all the structures of the body.
Several areas of the body can be simultaneously out of balance for different reasons - the continuous pull of gravity, physical and emotional factors of a traumatic nature, over-use, poor posture, lack of exercise etc. Our bodies are continuously seeking balance and with the cumulative effect of the above named stressors, the body's ability to remain stable is challenged.
So it is understandable that the body will not have the same ability to cope as it once did and may need assistance in its recovery. Christine's therapy treatments are directed towards assisting the body to change its current pattern of holding tension to a more appropriate pain-free state.
Fascial Facilitation affects the soft tissues of the body through electrical changes that occur via the nervous system, which then alters the current tension pattern the body is maintaining.This non-invasive, full body treatment based upon Osteopathic principles is given while the client is in a restful state and fully clothed.
Christine skillfully works through the tremendously complex fascial system which laces throughout the body, she releases tension with specific techniques, which allow the self-healing and correcting processes of the body to be enhanced. Her touch brings assistance to an otherwise exhausted or struggling fascial system. Many of her clients claim to feel an immediate sense of change.

“The part can never be well unless the whole is well.”
"As a dancer and dance instructor, I've tried numerous forms of alternative therapy and in my opinion, nothing can touch the non-invasive fascial release work Christine does.
Whether it is releasing trauma from a car accident or keeping a balance in the body from the daily strains of work and life, I would not go to anyone else."
