She received her massage therapy training at the Potomac Massage Training Institute in Washington DC where she was exposed to a variety of bodywork and energy healing modalities. Helena’s Craniosacral Therapy training includes several Upledger based workshops and Somato Emotional Release, and she is certified in ”Riding the Wave, Touching Stillness,” a Craniosacral training with a Biodynamic approach, taught by Heidi Wilson. She took most of John Barnes Myofascial Release seminars and several of Lori Zeltwanger’s workshops including the art of therapeutic dialoguing.
Helena is a firm believer in the wisdom of the body and the power of the inner healer in each person. Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy are very holistic approaches to healing, whether the source of the dysfunction is physical, emotional, or spiritual as it manifests in the body. Her role as a massage therapist is to listen to the wisdom that is inherent in the body tissues and facilitate the healing process using her extensive professional training and deep intuitive abilities.
Helena has been living in Sedona since 2010 and loves to go out hiking on the red rocks. She is honored and grateful to be of service to others through this healing profession in beautiful and healing Sedona!
Services Offered by Helena:
Consists of gentle application of sustained pressure into fascial restrictions in the body. Fascia is a tough connective tissue that covers all cells, nerves, blood vessels, organs, muscles and bones of the body in a three-dimensional web without interruption. Trauma, posture or inflammation can bind fascial tissue, creating excessive pressure on those body components, and leading to pain.
The gentle but sustained pressure into fascial restrictions helps release this binding and relieve pain. Myofascial Release addresses multiple layers in the body and ranges from very light to very deep, depending on the client’s needs. With Myofascial Release techniques no oil or cream is applied.
Cranio Sacral Therapy
Restrictions and imbalances in the membrane system and connective tissue that link the cranium and sacrum may cause pain and dysfunction. Cranial Sacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive technique that addresses these restrictions.
Gentle mobilization of the cranial and sacral bones facilitates balancing of the cerebrospinal fluid flow and encourages the body to strengthen its ability to heal itself. A balanced flow of the cerebrospinal fluid facilitates structural changes and positively affects the nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine and muscular systems. In a Cranio Sacral session no oil or cream is applied and the client may remain fully clothed.
