Our bodies tell us the truth when we listen: what we are hiding from, what we are capable of, and what we are called to do. 

Catherine J Howard (RYT 500) offers a wide range of healing modalities for her private clients.

THERAPEUTIC THAI YOGA MASSAGE

In this fully-clothed “assisted yoga” technique, Catherine moves your body through a range of yoga postures to release blocked areas in the body and stimulate healing in the body, mind, and spirit. Thai yoga melds together range of motion exercises, acupressure, gentle twisting, assisted Hatha yoga poses, deep tissue compression, meditation, and energy work. You are not required to exert any effort and instead are invited to relax deeply. When the systems of the body are working well and energy distribution is balanced, we feel calm, happy, relaxed, energetic, and free from stiffness and pain.

Biodynamic CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

In this extremely gentle hands-on energy work technique, Catherine uses a series of light hand placements to evaluate and release restrictions in the body's craniosacral system (the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord).  As restrictions are released, the cerebrospinal fluid can circulate more freely and the central nervous system (and thereby the entire body) is calmed. Decompressing the nervous system and brings the individual into a sense of balanced wholeness. It is a joint practice of slowing and listening to the originating forces living within our fluid body. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy can be very effective in treating headaches, chronic neck and back pain, TMJ, and PTSD.

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Private Yoga Instruction

Catherine teaches private MindBody Centering Yoga sessions to awaken the innate intelligence of the body. The clarity and wisdom of the MBCY technique instructs the body-mind to bypass old patterns of imbalance that create discomfort, re-patterning one's neurological map into an enhanced homeostasis of ease. Every person, then, naturally begins to self-organize, align, and attune into greater integration, strength and grace.

I went to Catherine for some simple relief. I was suffering through a ‘frozen shoulder’ that was causing me discomfort and limiting my ability to move throughout life. I had seen two people about it, not including my doctor. One of those people was a professional sports medicine person who had been working with me for a few months. We were making progress, but it was very slow.

During the session with Catherine, I was more limber in my shoulder, but the pain had subsided immensely! I couldn’t believe it. Even twirling my shoulder around, gingerly at first, it was hard to believe. I assumed it would be a temporary fix, but with some regular stretching throughout the day my frozen shoulder was cured.

Since, I’ve recommended Catherine to anyone I know who needs healing. As they say: run, don’t walk. See her today!
