Structural Bodywork with Ryan Hill

Available:  Mondays

Rates:
$100/ 70 minutes

Ryan describes his work as “no-fluff.” Heavily informed by Yoga practice, his main objective in touch is in guiding an experience of release. There are often many changes of position. You’ll be encouraged to breathe and remain in touch with the body’s reactivity as he implements very direct methods. An excellent approach for those with chronic pain, the experience is designed to lead you to understand it’s cause and discover new connections in movement. There’s a good chance you’ll get “homework” involving yoga postures or self-massage to reinforce the work.
Having struggled with it himself, Ryan’s specialty is sacro-illiac and hip-flexor issues. While some massage modalities focus on the back body, structural work tends to begin at the foundation. We have to recognize that healing is work and there are no quick solutions. By creating new habits and patterns, you can expect change! Sessions are fully clothed.

Vibrational Sound Therapy with Kristina Clemons

Available Sundays & some midday weekday times

Rates: $85/ 60min

Vibrational Sound Therapy is a modality of healing that uses the combination of sound, rhythm, and vibration to bring about a deeply relaxed state in both body and mind. Himalayan singing bowls are placed on the body, creating soothing ambient tones and palpable vibrations that help to gradually slow breathing and heart-rate, release muscle tension and support relaxation response in the nervous system.  Within this relaxed state, where the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, the body has the potential to heal itself on a deeper level.

Stress and anxiety related disorders (obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, insomnia, depression, gastrointestinal problems, asthma…) make up 75 to 90 percent of all doctors visits. Many people today live within the fight or flight stress response and are unable to move back into a balanced nervous system. With Vibrational Sound Therapy, the whole system is guided to a place of greater  harmony and ease. According to oncologist and stress relief expert Mitchell Gaynor, “Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”

This treatment is great for:
  •  busy brained type A personalities who have trouble quieting the thinking mind
  • those who carry a lot of physical tension
  • anyone working to manage stress/anxiety related conditions
  • anyone simply interested in feeling more relaxed and grounded

  • Kim Wutkiewicz

    Kim Wutkiewicz

    Through her commitment to mind-body practices, Kim has devoted her life to guiding clients toward their ultimate states of well-being.

    Kim is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine and is nationally board certified in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine).

    She obtained her Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAOM) after four years of study at the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA), the oldest and one of the most prestigious acupuncture schools in the United States. Her formal training includes Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture, Medical Qi Gong, Reiki, Chinese herbal medicine and nutrition. Outside of NESA, Kim has treated diverse patient populations in a variety of clinical settings, including Pathways to Wellness, Lemuel Shattuck Hospital, and the Malden Family Health Center.

    Throughout her adult life, Kim has consistently sought to discern patterns of health within living systems. After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology from Haverford College in Pennsylvania, she spent several years teaching environmental education and sustainable farming in Vermont. Through this work, she gleaned a fundamental understanding of the intrinsic healing capacities of the natural world. When her focus shifted from the wellness of ecological systems to the wellness of human bodies, she refined her sensitivity to the mind-body connection through the practice of meditation, yoga, and aikido.

    In 2005, Kim enrolled at NESA to formally pursue a career in the healing arts. In addition to completing the required coursework, she traveled to Japan in 2009 to study Shakuju therapy, a subtle form of acupuncture that relies on the pressure of blunt needles on specific points rather than the insertion of needles into the skin. She has spent hundreds of hours assisting Kiiko Matsumoto, a renowned Japanese acupuncture practitioner, known for her mastery of receiving direct feedback from patients’ bodies. In 2010, Kim completed an intensive, six-month course on Medical Qi Gong with Paul Fraser. In addition, Kim is a 200-hour RYT certified yoga instructor. She teaches a unique flowing style of yoga, weaving concepts of Chinese Medical Philosophy into sequences of movement.

    As a compassionate healer, Kim integrates her knowledge of anatomy, movement, nutrition, and Eastern energetics into her treatments to encourage each patient to achieve a state of optimal health. As a dedicated teacher, she encourages her clients to learn how to listen more carefully to the language of their bodies. Through newfound insight and sensitivity, Kim’s patients learn to confidently stand at the helm of their own healing.

    Kristina Clemons

    Kristina first discovered an interest in the power of vibration in 2013 while listening to a sanskrit chant as part of her 500hr yoga teacher training. This developed into a discussion and study project on what is transmitted through vibration, its effect the the many layers of the Self, and the ability of sound waves to transform surroundings. Kristina has continued to study alternative means of maintaining health and balance. She completed Kripalu’s Foundations of Ayurveda program in 2013 which focuses on diet and lifestyle practices as a form of self healing and preventative medicine. With specialized anatomy and physiology training, she helps private clients to heal from injury and regain a balance of strength, mobility, and stability through therapeutic yoga practice.

    In what felt like a natural progression, Kristina received certification as a Vibrational Sound Practitioner through Vibrational Sound Association in the summer of 2017. She is thrilled to offer this uplifting experience of healing and relaxation to a stressed out world or at least start with stressed out Bostonians.
