What is it?
Dynamic Rebalancing is rooted in Zero Balancing, and incorporates concepts and techniques from various myofascial release techniques and soft tissue manipulation (which is basically massage), as well as various dance /dance related/somatic trainings.
Sessions are received with the client clothed, and no oils/lotions are used. The client may be worked on while standing, seated, lying on their sides, stomach, or back.
What sorts of things can Dynamic Rebalancing help with?
Pain and restrictions (including post injury/surgery), even from long ago; reducing anxiety or stress; increasing wellness and equilibrium; and more.
Who developed Dynamic Rebalancing, and how come I haven’t heard of it?
Dynamic Rebalancing developed as an outgrowth of the experiences and trainings Karen Michaels has had as a dancer, massage therapist, certified yoga teacher, homeopath, and musician.
You may have heard people speak of their sessions with Karen, but because Karen does not teach Dynamic Rebalancing classes as a bodywork technique, nor have a huge media presence, you may not have heard of her work.
Why would one choose Dynamic Rebalancing instead of Massage Therapy, acupuncture, or other types of treatment sessions?
Different techniques offer different benefits. As a licensed massage therapist since 1985, I have been astounded over and over again with the positive and speedy results my clients experience from Dynamic Rebalancing sessions. Because these treatments take into account the flow and transfer of energy and weight through our bodies as we move and rest in stillness, the work done comes from a different perspective than many other techniques, and the effects are usually deeper and more long-lasting than those experienced from massage therapy.
How long do sessions last, and how often should they be received?
Sessions can be 30, 45, 60, or 75 minutes long.
Each individual’s circumstances would indicate how often they should receive their treatment session.
