During school, I used to work in the theater as a techincian. I was also reading books by Carl Jung. I personally worked with his method of dream intrepretation for 25 years. Early on I had a dream in which I was told to be a masseuse. I was considering a move to NYC to work in theater. About this time, I also started a life-long practice of meditation.
I decided to go into massage. What I found from the beginning was that when I put my hands on people, they felt better. And I didn't really know why. My first classes where a course in deep tissue, five days a week for six weeks. This started a lifetime of study. My work became a combination of techniques, a synthesis, of all the modalities that 'Rang True' for me. There were several courses I attended that I never used.
Today, I continue to study the latest and most innovative bodywork methods available. My focus is on Osteopathic bodywork. Because it is dynamic, balancing, gentle and well researched. I have an innate ability to use my hands to feel deep into the body and differentiate between healthy and dis-eased tissues. This skill allows me to sense change and to release congestion and pain, allowing more balance.
Truly, it is our bodies that set this balance. As a therapist, I am simply the catalyst. It was a while before I got this. It has been a rewarding process, working directly with people. Today I blend awareness, tenacity and an open, yearning spirit to live my life NOW with Joy and Gratitude, simply Being.
I am privileged to be of service to you. Bonnie Salu
