This is a Holistic Manual (hand) Therapy. It considers each person on many levels. The body is a physical manifestation of an energetic framework which holds our vitality. Chronic issues are often caused by hidden irritants: past infection, physical trauma, operations, emotions, and pregnancy amongst other issues. The Yin-Tegrity touch can literally ask the body tissues questions and, only after listening to the answer, is it clear what is needed. The treatment is “Yin” or soft, stretching and nourishing. It helps the body realign itself from the deeper layers may be causing multiple issues. Even without a complaint, this treatment will help you rejuvenate and build your constitution.
Using a comprehensive evaluation of the whole body and energy, a priority is set to allow maximum benefit for the whole.
Yin – means deep internal, stretching, softness, and yielding. Yin-Tegrity denotes a wholeness on all levels.
