Bodywork session

30


30 per hour

I've been doing bodywork since i was a kid. And have been lucky enough to trade with and learn from multiple housemates who were well known certified massage teachers in different parts of the country.

Touch helps us rest and activates your parasympathetic nervous system. It helps us de-stress, produces oxytocin and shifts our neurotransmitter cascades in a healthy relaxing direction. This improves cognition later in the day, reduces tension & anxiety, generates feelings of well being. It may help relieve anxiety or headaches. It's also just plain fun & enjoyable.

I'm happy to focus on particular areas if you have been feeling particularly tight somewhere. Deeper work may help break up the fascia that hold your muscles in tense positions maladaptively.

Take some time for yourself and get away from your hectic life. It's a little mini vacation for free.

I like to have a quick phone call prior to the session to get to know each other

I met with Marty for a massage, and was instantly reassured from nervousness when I arrived. When Marty answered the door, he wanted to have a good am...ount of “getting to know you” talk, go over what is ailing me, and he is very knowledgeable about several possible homeopathic solutions to a variety of ailments. When it came time for the massage, everything was alright. It felt a little rushed, but who can complain about a Simbi-powered massage? I would love to see additional options from Marty like 30 mins head and shoulders or 30 mins feet or lower back... just a thought ;) Overall, I was pleased with the experience, and there was nothing weird or uncomfortable. I would go back to see Marty again. Thank you for offering massage of Simbi Marty!!show more

About Marty D

I've worked in the nonprofit sector most of my adult life with about ten years on the tech side. I've helped to organize and run sessions for two national nonprofit tech conferences. In addition... to being a native speaker of American English, I speak Spanish & French fluently. I have previously been conversational in Russian and German and know a couple hundred words in another half dozen languages. I have extensive experience as a trainer & workshop facilitator over the last 30 years in a wide variety of topics: politics, emotional support, health education, pain management, sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. I've moderated online discussions and taught at conferences & retreat centers. I really enjoy seeing light bulbs go off over people's heads. I follow a paleo ketogenic diet mostly based on the ideas of Dr Patricia Wahls. There are the usual diet charlatans out there but she is an MD following the latest nutrition science. I like direct authentic honest constructive feedback and true specific believable compliments. I love to hike, sing, play improv games & chess, and read sci-fi.show more
