Specialities:

Anima Flow Myofascial Release/Cranial Sacral

John Barnes Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)

The use of Myofascial Release allows the therapist to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which the therapist uses a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy.

Holly designs each treatment in response to your unique individual physical, mental and emotional needs, listening deeply to your body’s innate wisdom while guiding you toward your natural state of vivacious health and well-being.

Through her nurturing touch, empathic support and intuitive artistry, she helps you heal your bodily restrictions and physical pain — and reduce stress, anxiety, depression, emotional traumas, fears and phobias — so you can experience a sense of flowing energy and balance through a body-mind-heart connection.

Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.

Dual Therapist Myofascial Release: 60 minutes

Holly Miely and Shawn Hadley, partners in life, creativity and love to bring Holly and Shawn have joined forces to bring healing to all. Shawn and I are striving to help others move beyond pain, restriction and blockages through our bodywork by using our connection to each other to enhance sessions for clients. During sessions, both therapists will provide support and manual manipulation allowing clients to experience a safe and potent release through the fascial system.

Anima Flow Connective/Deep Tissue
For those seeking a deeper, more therapeutic bodywork experience. Various Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release and Nueromuscular/Trigger Point Therapy techniques will be applied to relieve muscle tension and restore balance within the body.

Movement Workshop & Intensives:

In our technology driven, modern world, we have lost the connection to our natural instincts, intuition and psychic abilities. This intensive is intended to bring us back to our natural flow state where we can easily access these subtle signals.

Workshops and intensives are an exciting journey to get you back in touch with your innate powers. It is intended to give you freedom and ease in your life, and to allow you to manifest what you desire, have healthy relationships with yourself and others, feel grounded and strong, and to easily make decisions based on what feels right for you. You will alter your mind through movement, let go of old stories, and learn to live freely. Together we will create a space to discover, dissolve and transmute what is holding you back in your life.

During workshops and intensives, Holly Miely will guide you through movement and exercises to get you out of habitual thought patterns and back into your body. When we are grounded in our bodies, we can navigate life with much more ease rather than struggle. Most of us go through life holding deep tensions in our bodies that we are unaware of, in a reactionary state, putting great stress on all areas of our health. Holly will guide us through movement techniques that will help us relax into our subtle feeling body, inviting us to respond to, and flow naturally with life. We will learn to work with energy rather than against it, and use movement to expand rather than contract, creating a much more powerful relationship with ourselves and the world.
