Aah, the human body… always negotiating balance with gravity…
Welcome to Connected Body In Gravity!
Dessi is a certified massage therapist with a focus on medical massage and structural bodywork. She applies an individual approach to each body using deep tissue and myofascial release, neuro-kinetic muscular release, and Active Release Techniques. She sees her work as engaging in a unique conversation with Nature with every session, in view of the needs and lifestyle of the client. For the very special, expecting client, Dessi offers prenatal-postpartum massage. For the athlete, she provides pre-, post- and intra-event sessions, and specialized ART therapy. The chair massage events she organizes give a taste of the incredible benefits of soft tissue work on the human body.
Dessi owes her passion for bodywork to her alma mater the San Francisco School of Massage & Bodywork and, with enormous gratitude, to her main tutors Marty Morales and Art Riggs, Advanced Rolfers, and Thomas Wells, NKT® and P-DTR® instructor. Much thanks goes to all the therapists who have worked with her and developed awareness of her own body, and to the best teachers of all – her clients.
After well over 1600 hours of technical training, Dessi is convinced that an effective, results-oriented look at the body is one that sees Nature’s tensegrity genius in the system.
Looking forward to seeing you in session!
