Many years ago a friend of mine, and a fellow student of movement and natural healing, Julie, and I were talking about our line of work. After hours, and perhaps even days of trying to describe our synergy and what we do, we came up with Intrinsiconnections.
Here on the site, for search purposes we have seperated the two words, Intrinsic Connections, but in our search we joined the two words together and I will explain why.
Why this name? Well, it’s kind of an organic thing.
Intrinsiconnections represents the connection we have in our body work. Julie and I have many years of combined experience and although we each have some separate areas of modality, our skills are Intrinsically connected.
I have been practicing massage therapy for thirty-two years and Julie has taught many modalities of workouts in a variety of settings the same amount of time. We both have a deep curiosity about bodies and each of us is constantly on the looks out for ways to relieve pain and increase movement. Bodies fascinate each of us, we can’t learn enough about them. This desire to understand things on a deeper level has propelled us to our own category of bodywork.
The workshop we held recently was developed by Julie and myself to help my clients on their fifties and sixties understand their bodies and take notes of warning signs. Numbness and tingling of limbs are sometimes precursors to degeneration of the disc and collapse of the core. This results in compression and shortening of the spine. We demonstrated movements which could help release those compressions and make your muscles move freely once again.
It was such a success that we are preparing to plan for another class in the next few months.
Val and Julie
