Some examples of Mary’s creative process

“A number of my clients have restless legs, especially at night. The superficial energy on the surface of the body keeps drawing on a depleted energy source underneath which creates the restlessness. In my experience, if I give a broad-handed compression to address the deeper fatigue in the bones, accompanied by a gentle rocking of the body to disperse the superficial energy, the legs will relax.”

“There is a certain body type with a wiry constitution and a tendency toward fast movements and nervous anxiety. People with this body type are easily “revved up” and find it challenging to be still. For a person with those tendencies, I focus on giving treatments that are especially grounding, allowing the nervous system to slow down and gather energy.”
