Our Philosophy

     The name Align Bodyworks comes out of the idea that the body strives for what is called 'homeostasis'.  The body wants to be in balance front and back, left and right, top to bottom.  Joints want to move unimpeded.  The mind and body want to be in sync.  When the body is not in balance, whether physically, mentally, or chemically, it has it's way of letting us know.  When a right shoulder hurts, it's going to not only affect the shoulder itself, it may also affect the head, neck (many muscles attach directly from the shoulder to the skull and to the neck vertebrae), the ribs, breathing, and the compensating factors that can occur below and to the left.  If an event has occurred affecting body or mind, it can retain the impact and carry it in all activities until it is addressed, even if it is decades later.  It's all connected.  When the body is a rest and you can focus on what you want to do, the body is no longer complaining to you about a long-ago issue.  That has been the focus of this practice from the beginning.  We have gradually added services that provide for the community and bring enjoyment and relief to life.
     Many issues can have their start in childhood, and even as an adult, resolution of those long term issues can be helped.  I look at what the activities of daily living are which include the kind of work and home life involved (stretching, bending, sitting, lifting).  Using goal setting, we work with where you are when we start, and where you want to be at the end of treatment.  This is the best way to make sure the bodywork is resolving the issues you are most concerned with.
