At Center of Balance, bodywork is incorporated into our private sessions to assist in your process of healing, tension release, and creating more balance. This may include tactile cueing, skilled hands-on adjustments during an exercise, assisted stretching, and/or myofascial release techniques.
Bodywork integrated into your session helps correct muscular / fascial imbalances that hinder harmonious movement and healthy posture. You gain awareness about your body and how to modify behaviors and activities that relieve muscle tension and pain. The art of touch can be profound for helping you make connections and create positive change in your movements.
Tom McCook incorporates a variety of modalities into his private sessions to facilitate learning. He has an extensive background in bodywork — Shiatsu, Myofascial Release, Feldenkrais, therapeutic massage, Somatics, and Craniosacral Therapy — which are valuable tools for assessment and movement re-education.

In addition to offering Pilates-based rehabilitation by all of our instructors, our licensed Physical Therapist Therese Voelker is available for PT evaluations and private sessions of PT-related exercise protocols.
We also have a CranioSacral therapist at Center of Balance who has been a practitioner since 1990. Judy Ann has a background in Orthopedic and Physical Therapy and takes a functional approach to her work. She works with all types of clients, including newborns, children, adults and the elderly. A gentle hands-on treatment, CranioSacral Therapy uses the wave-like motion of the spinal fluid to detect and help release restrictions in the body tissues, wherever they may occur, promoting healing and well-being.
To schedule a CranioSacral Therapy session with Judy Ann, contact her directly at (650) 575-1408.
