Virginia Hofrichter, LMT, Massage Therapist in West Hartford
Clients with structural issues are some of my favorites. Low back, neck and shoulder pain are often related to long-standing habits, both postural and emotional. I can help unravel patterns of imbalance by using techniques that address the muscles, the bony alignment, the nervous system and the energy systems of the body. The particular bodywork techniques I employ are Craniosacral Therapy, Pain Neutralization Technique, Polarity Therapy, acupressure and other forms of energy work. I usually combine them in a session tailored at each visit to suit my client's needs.
One of my specialties is TMJ Syndrome or stubborn jaw pain. This is often a "whole person" affliction that necessitates structural alignment, release of the cranio-sacral system, muscular work, and sometimes emotional processing. My TMJ clients experience significant relief from jaw pain and from other physical complaints as well.
In general, pain is a "whole person" issue. My 36 years of bodywork practice and a lifetime focused on personal growth enable me to address physical problems with compassion, skill, and a special talent for listening. If you need someone to listen to your pain effectively, call me.
