Therapeutic Massage and Myofascial Release Therapy

Monika Tinneberg has run BodyWork for Women (and their Men) from her home in the Ottawa area for over 25 years. Those decades of practice have led to an unusual style that is highly effective and supremely relaxing.

The predominant influence in her style of work comes from Chinese Therapeutic Massage and Myofascial Release Therapy. The treatments are at times vigorous, yet incredibly sedating, as the the larger muscle groups are ‘cajoled’ into releasing, plus taking extra time to work those contracted areas means a deeper tissue level is reached without undue pain. This results in your body truly being able to relax, take the treatment in and ultimately be more effective in affecting changes in the tissue, especially good for pain reduction, compacted joints, spine and neck and seized or contracted muscles.

Monika listens to the feedback siganls that each body on her table sends, telling her when to release, when to move in deeper, when to leave or return. This enables an extremely tailored treatement as your body signals are listened to and lead the way.

Monika has studied Chinese Therapeutic Massage with Chongding Zhang, a traditional Chinese Medical doctor from China, who is also a Chi Gong Master. She apprenticed 1 year with Bill Rhodenizer of Fascial North, a physiotherapist in Ottawa, who practises solely Myofascial Release Therapy. She has done course work with the John Barnes passive Myofascial therapy seminars. She has completed course work with the Upledger Institute in lymphatic drainage and complimented that with further lymphatic drainage coursework with Janet McFarland, owner and teacher of Cookstown Physiotherapy.

Myofascial Release Therapy. Gives your body the chance to eliminate its’ restrictions and movement inhibitors. It is a simple and gentle approach using long duration sequences of specific moves to target areas we often feel have no HOPE of ever getting better.For injuries, decreased mobility, scar tissue, repetitive strain, decompress joints, spine &neck, restore your ability to move.

The therapy is aimed at avoiding triggering your body’s defensive system to resist. If I do not engage this system, which most therapies do (because either it hurts too much, it doesn’t help much, it is too fast),then your body can release impact inan unprecedented way.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy. To ease the pain and suffering when amastectomy or lumpectomy start causing swelling or edema. In fact, in 1-5 years, swelling can develop because the scars and node removal impede your bodies natural drainage patterns. I can help by breaking down the scars and repatterning your bodies lymphatic drainage. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS CONDITION OR THE PAIN AND DEBILITIY IT CAUSES.And we can do something about the immobility in you arm (or arms) too!

Effective for cellulite treatments, pain & swelling due toinjury or surgery, ie. plastic surgery, PMS pain &discomfort, fibrocsystic (lumpy) breasts.

Specialty Scar, Breast, Pelvic Work. EVERY scar we have needs to be assessed and possibly released so that when it grows adhesions, these do not grow onto surrounding areas that cause problems. Like squeezing your bladder and causing bladder issues (can’t hold it very long, can’tc ough or laugh without dribbling, etc…) Or causing lower back pain,menstrual pain, abdominal pain (I have kept a number of clients with colostomies from getting repeated surgery due to bowel obstruction from scar tissue).

Painful, fibrocystic or lumpy breasts are more than just inconvenient.This signals that an area in your body of MAJOR lymphatic flow has blockages and this can possibly lead to cellular changes over time.That could mean Cancer. We can reduce the soreness associated with yourcycle, make your breast tissue more supple and healthy. The post treatment feelingof having a weight lifted off your shoulders is simply amazing.www.monikatinneberg.ca Academy of Naturopaths and Naturotherapists Myofascial Release Therapist613-857-7031Carleton Place, Ottawa, Deep River, Perth, Iroquois
