"Is the world too much with you?*
Your discomfort, your pain, your exhaustion, your stress, your anxiety… your sense that life is moving too fast and there's so much more you need to do… so much more of you that's not finding expression in the world…
Can I help?
Bodywork is intended to bring relief to tight and sore spots and work out the kinks.
But your body is more than parts. It's a collective of relationships.
My work is predominantly shiatsu (shee - ah'- tsoo), but also brings in more 'western' techniques, such as structural alignment, myoskeletal therapy, and fascia release.
This immersion in eastern and western approaches to the body allows me to see not just the parts, but the relationships between them, and to suggest where I believe those relationship are out of balance.
Bodywork sessions are wonderful. But an hour every so often isn't always enough to undo the effects of the rest of your life.
Your body is the expression of the million little choices you make throughout the day: how you move, how you rest, how you breathe, what you eat, what you give your attention and energy to, and why, and being aware of what's informing those choices.
It's also about remembering that there's a natural environment you can take your cues from that's every bit as much reality (if not more) than the one you're usually grappling with.
Who am I, what do I mean by that, and where do we go from here?
I'm Gina Loree Marks, and I'm a bodyworker based in the Chester County, Pennsylvania area. I invite you to learn more about me, my bodywork practice, and other tools (no matter where you live) to help you get back in touch with that reality.
