Subtle Physical Therapy

craniosacral therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light touch therapy that accesses the CranioSacral System, a series of membranes and fluids that support the brain and spinal cord, which are literally at the “core” of our being.  Using the gentlest application of pressure, CST helps your soft tissues release restrictions, and resets the cranial bones in a more beneficial and spacious arrangement.  After releasing the diaphragms, and the bones of the head, neck, jaw, and face, each session finishes with a full body BFF, a rotational tool which stimulates the superficial fascia and lymphatic system to release toxins as it calms the nervous system.

feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais Method® uses a combination of movement, directed attention and guided exploration that engages the ability of our brain to change (neuroplasticity), and allows us to alter patterns that limit our potential. It teaches us how to learn new ways of sensing that "rewire" our nervous system in more efficient way.  Functional Integration lessons are hands-on private sessions. During these one-hour sessions, we discover how you organize your body to function, and through gentle touch, movement and focused attention, learn how to develop more efficient functional patterns in your nervous system.

  Name:  Dorota Puchala   Hometown:  New York City   Training:  Began Feldenkrais Method in 2007 and graduated from David Zemach-Bersin's 4 year professional training program in   2017, member of Feldenkrais Guild of North America.   Offerings at MBSY:  Functional Integration lessons (hands-on private sessions)   Why did you become a healer?  My personal experience of chronic pain in my lower back brought me to the Feldenkrais Method. After trying numerous other treatment options, I discovered the Feldenkrais Method and regular practice of yoga at MBSY healing benefits for me. Not only did it relieve my back pain, but the heightened awareness of how my body moves through its environment and improved my life on many levels. So much so that I wanted to share that gift with others and become a certified practitioner.   Your healing philosophy:  Introduce one’s body and mind to more improved ways of functioning.
