Rocksteady Bodywork is an Integrated Movement Practice
Our highly trained Rocksteady Bodywork practitioners artfully navigate the terrain of your body while guiding you to new levels of body awareness. We work comprehensively, dissolving dysfunctional patterning, erasing postural misalignments, releasing shortened and tightened fascial components, mobilizing joints, and restoring your nervous system to optimal function. Our goals are to free you into effortless good posture, eliminate pain, dissolve stress, and enhance your overall wellbeing.
Rocksteady Bodywork is a progressive, integrative, personalized experience. To unlock your full physical potential, we offer both manual massage therapy and private movement sessions. Our manual therapy includes deep tissue massage, Thai massage, myofascial release, decompressive joint mobilization, and soothing full-body stretching. Our personalized movement sessions call on classical Pilates, muscle energy techniques, energy integrations, yoga, and fascial movement.
We specialize in attentive, personalized care. Everyone we meet is unique, and every therapy plan is unique. Once our master bodyworkers meet with you and get to know you and your body, they will recommend session types and cadence that is specifically tailored to you. This will often include working with multiple practitioners in different Rocksteady modalities. Your therapist will also recommend complementary Rocksteady movement classes to address your specific patterns, needs, and goals.
Bodywork, like all other forms of movement, works best when it’s consistent. Because we are passionate about progress and sustaining your wellbeing, we bundle all bodywork in personalized 5-session packages. Expect life-altering results with regular sessions at least every six weeks.
Our work is transformative. We consistently deliver results that our clients can’t find anywhere else. They have more energy. They can demand more from their bodies. They find a new, unburdened flow in the movement that they love. They feel better, mentally and physically. You will too.
Deep Tissue Massage
Rocksteady’s signature deep tissue treatment is a full-body deep tissue massage combined with decompressive joint mobilizations and soothing fascial stretches. This sequence reduces body aches and pains, improves the way you move, and provides the maintenance you need to feel your best. This is a foundation for true fascial conditioning and we recommend it for everyone.
Our Rocksteady sports massage combines the best of Thai massage and shiatsu with expert neuromuscular techniques and joint mobilizations. Expect to feel deeply relaxed and invigorated at the same time. You’ll wear sports clothes and our expert therapists will move you through a series of deep stretches, tissue compressions, and joint mobilizations on a padded mat on the floor.
Structural Integration is an advanced bodywork technique created by Ida Rolf and developed by Tom Meyers, whose work we closely follow and study. Each session is detailed and thorough, focusing on a specific area of your body to resolve the fascial issues that result in postural deviations, poor movement mechanics, and chronic pain. This work permanently and positively alters your body.
Myofascial Release MASSAGE
Myofascial Release Massage is the perfect complement to our Deep Tissue sessions. Myofascial Release resets your limbic system and circadian rhythms, induces a parasympathetic state, boosts your immune system through lymphatic drainage, and soothes your nervous system with intentionally long, sustained strokes, a slow gliding pace, and gentle release of tension patterns and fascial adhesions. In these sessions you will experience deep relaxation and deep rest, as we release tissue trauma and recalibrate your system. While the bodywork itself is lighter pressure, the effect is comprehensive, beneficial, and profound.
