We have added a new member to our team! Welcome, Melissa Stander MA, CMT.
Hi! I’m massage therapist and Reiki Master, Melissa Stander. I’m delighted to join the amazing team at the Center for Physical Health as a massage therapist.
I bring my unique blend of training and experience in Swedish and Shiatsu massage, pre- and post-natal massage, injury prevention and recovery massage, as well as energy work to the mix. My approach is also informed by a grounding in body-centered Psychotherapy and Mindfulness practice.
I’ve developed into a Jane of all healing trades due to an early and transformational discovery of the power of inner awareness, unconditional self-love and loving self-discipline as a mode toward optimal health and wellbeing.
I work with clients to find their own path to health and to participate fully in their own healing. Along with the other fine practitioners on the client’s therapeutic team, I encourage clients to tune into their bodies and pay attention to the messages they receive. In this way, clients are led by their own innate wisdom, coupled with the expertise of a team of highly trained professionals, toward lifestyle changes that will optimally support and promote healthy wellbeing.
Center for Physical Health Feldenkrais Practitioner and Marriage and Family Therapy Intern, Bridget Quebodeaux, created this "Emotion Focused Journal" in response to requests from clients for a way to examine unsettling events that occur between therapy sessions. The questions in this workbook are designed to help clients focus on their internal experience---thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations and to differentiate emotions from anxiety, judgments, perceptions and distancing defenses. Bridget is currently working on an new version of the Emotion Focused Journal so check back for updates soon!
