Movement Therapy and Self Healing
Betty's mission is to educate clients in Self Healing strategies that extend beyond the table. She is an advocate and teacher of Movement Therapies for ongoing wellness. She integrates and advocates the concepts of Mindful Movement, Breathwork, Stretching, Pilates, Yoga, Myofascial Unwinding and the Feldenkrais Method. She has also developed and teaches a self healing protocol using the Foam Roller to assist in the process of releasing tensions with self-Myofascial Release. Practice of these movement therapies encourages the ability to listen to one’s own body and respond to built up tension patterns on a daily basis. Betty teaches Movement Therapy class at Sunshine Studio, Thursdays noon-1:00, as well as offering private instruction.
Betty has 10 years of teaching experience, including Mindful Movement class for the special needs of students at Turning Point, the Center for Hope for people in treatment for serious illness and their caregivers.
This is not your everyday Swedish Massage at the Spa. Betty listens to your body, elicits deep relaxation and nurtures the musculo-skeletal system with comfort massage and joint mobilization. She creates the conditions to release deeply held tensions and energetic blocks for healing and mind/body/spirit/ emotional transformation.
The Body Therapy By Betty space is a very special spacious studio that features an antique slate floor, a natural skylight, beautiful serene paintings, a dedicated Movement Therapy area with mirrors and a cozy treatment room, featuring an extra comfy table layered with healing magnetics and layers of Temperpedic padding and the softest cotton linens. This is a table to which you can surrender all your cares and let go of your every care and tension.
