Aston-Patterning® is a system of structural bodywork that combines postural and muscle assessment with targeted massage, movement coaching and ergonomic modification. As such, it is an effective system for addressing the underlying stress patterns in our bodies that are responsible for creating and maintaining tension. But even more than that, the work serves as a powerful educational tool that can help individuals to increase their body awareness, thereby enabling them to modify their body usage and experience life in a body that is relaxed, responsive, and best able to support them in their activities.
This bodywork is completed with the client fully clothed. Please bring or wear flexible/comfortable clothing for these sessions, such as yoga pants, athletic shorts, sports bra, etc.
Your initial session includes assessment, hands-on bodywork, movement coaching and, when appropriate, ergonomic modifications to your environment. While you will be charged the same rate as a regular full session, please set aside 2 hours to allow for a longer initial evaluation.
