The Padgen Method
The Padgen Method is my signature work. After thousands of hours of practice I have created a healing methodology that works for people of all ages. We at the Padgen Institute believe that education, consistency, and awareness are the foundation to a long and healthy life. We are committed to provide effective, affordable massage therapy and bodywork.
What is the Padgen Method?
The Padgen Method is a hybrid of Structural Integration, Craniosacral Therapy, Swedish, and Esalen style of massage. Each session lengthens fascia, aligns the muscular skeletal system, decompresses the joints, unwinds the cranial membrane (RTM) and related structures; increasing circulation of fluids, blood, lymph, and cerebral spinal fluid restoring balance to the biodynamic and bioelectrical field.
You Do Not Have to Live in Pain!
Pain of all types and causes can be eliminated! Pain from injuries, suffered from impacts, auto accidents, abuse trauma, birth trauma, repetitive use syndromes, myofascial adhesions, excessive scar tissue, Carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, Thoracic outlet syndrome, rotator cuff injuries, and shoulder pain can be lessened and in most cases eliminated.
The Padgen Method is effective in relief of soreness from overuse or over training. The work is very effective for structural pain in the feet (plantar fasciitis), lower leg pain (shin splints), knee strain, pelvic pain, sciatica, lumbar and lower back pain, pain in the Cervical spine, and reproduction and infertility issues. The work is a very effective treatment for post surgical knee or hip replacement, shoulder and rotator cuff replacement, post dental pain, migraines, cluster headaches, and Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (T.M.J.D).
The Method can assist in underuse syndromes, tenderness, and pain from lack of or limited movement, poor circulation, stomach and digestion problems.
Healing the Symptom and Treating the Cause.
The Method is effective in the reduction of stress: mental, physical and emotional; feeling of depression, lethargy, apathetic, or feeling of low energy and fatigue. Structural Bodywork restores vitality and increases energy. Many experience a sense of feeling lighter, loser and longer; as well as increased clarity.
What is Stress?
Stress is gravity’s effect on a random structure. Healing and the healing process is a very personal experience. Over the years, I have witnessed diverse approaches to healing. One common root cause of the lack of health is “STRESS.” The feeling of being “stressed out” is an expression of imbalance. Stress manifests in mental, physical, and emotional symptoms.
I believe that education and consistency are the first steps to health and well-being.
Stage 1: Start with the Padgen Method, commit to receiving twice a month for six months; this is the repair stage of healing processes.
Stage 2: Dr. Rolf's ten-session system of Structural Integration, once a week for ten-weeks; this is the preventive stage of the healing process.
Stage 3: Return to The Padgen Method with emphasis on craniosacral work, once a month for the remainder of the year; this is the maintenance stage of the healing process.
By the time you are finished you will have received over thirty-hours of massage and bodywork. Your awareness and the new patterns of structural health will lead you to your next stage of wellness.
The therapists at the Padgen Institute are well-trained and supported by me. The therapists that are starting out and are building a cliental and reputation are willing to work for a little less as they establish themselves in their profession.
Together we can work out a plan that fits your lifestyle and needs.
The School of Conscious Touch
We train couples in the therapeutic arts of massage, one and two-day classes available.
This is a very specialized form of bodywork, you want experienced hands with at least 10 years of practice; this is not your regular massage. If you are committed to health and wellness, we will make this affordable.
