Bodywork

 

A licensed Massage Therapist and graduate of the Sedona School of Massage,  Holly specializes in John Barnes Myofascial Release, connective tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Polarity, subtle energy technique and movement therapy.  Holly offers a potent combination of methods designed to make lasting change in the body. Holly believes the most powerful change comes from a combination of movement, bodywork and awareness. She believes we are all healers of our own bodies and strives to empower others to heal themselves.

Holly offers hands on bodywork, specializing in myofascial release, therapeutic bodywork and healing and movement therapy including aspects of yoga, dance, sensual movement, primal movement and awareness. Holly’s extensive background in movement, beginning at age 4, study of the body and hands on work bring together a powerful opportunity to heal and empower yourself. No two sessions are the same as no two people are the same. Holly’s assessments will address the entire person, not a singular condition. Resulting in very personal treatment designed to address your specific areas of dis-ease.

“I offer a powerful opportunity to reconnect with your body and intuition in a way that will restructure how you navigate your life. With the combination of innovative practices of movement, meditation and hands on physical and energetic work, you will have an opportunity to move through your blockages, both physical and emotional, fears, binds and congestion.”

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.

Through movement and bodywork, you will be shown ways to create a new relationship between your body, mind and spirit. Holly will offer her hands on body and energy work to further the release process. Facilitating the release of blockages, trauma and creating a free flow of energy with in the body and making space. We use movement to tap into our physical and emotional blockages. It is also a space to express oneself creatively and emotionally. A place where we have full permission to move freely, unguarded, release powerful storages of pain and open up our bodies to be clear channels to the divine.

Modalities

Myofascial Release
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.

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.

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.

Therapeutic Massage
Therapeutic Massage will provide a relaxing atmosphere to help assist you with relaxation while applying therapeutic pressure to the muscles to assist with your day to day muscle tension. This session is for those seeking healthy level of medium to deep pressure yet still want a relaxation massage.

Relaxation Massage
This light – light medium pressure session is perfect for those seeking to relax and unwind from the day. Your session will be focusing on relaxing the mind and body in a quiet, calm, and nurturing environment.

Holly Miely and Shawn Hadley, partners in life, creativity and love 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.

Sedona Retreats and Transformational 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.

Spend 1, 2, 5 or 7 days with Anima Flow and our partner therapists, guides, activity coordinators and alternative resources to allow for a fully immersive and transformative experience. Intensives are an exciting journey to get you back in touch with your inner knowing and higher self. Customized to meet you or your groups needs, can provide hands on bodywork, energy work, outdoor recreational activities, meditation and awareness based practices, movement therapy, life coaching, hiking, biking and even catering.

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 Miele and a team of practitioners and guides 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.
