Like any collaborative session, the chances of having a "successful" one is more likely when you allow yourself the capacity to go in with an open mind and willingness to let others help in order to reach your goal. To me, body work is no different. Miri is an incredibly intuitive and skilled healer and her genuine care and compassion to her client's overall wellbeing is deeply felt in every interaction. I approached our distance healing session with zero expectations, but with the aforementioned open mind and I ended it feeling more grounded and connected with my body. With Miri's guidance, I was able to listen more closely to what I needed to better integrate my mind, body and spirit. While it may not be for everyone, I feel like I came away with a lot and am still thinking about what I felt and learned.
Let me just start off by saying Miri has changed my neck & back problems around completely! I tend to hold a tremendous amount of trauma in these areas but after each sessions they seem to dissipate. She always listens to exactly what my body needs and follows with execution, leaving me in a complete state of bliss.
If your looking for a massage therapy who can apply a lot of pressure without hurting you, she is the one lol.
In the battle of Miri versus my calcified-fascia-ridden body, Miri emerged the champion.
I walked in a hot, twisted mess of tension, aches, knots . . . and from Miri's knockout combo of deep tissue massage and craniosacral magic (and whatever other modalities she incorporates in her style), I walked out of feeling relaxed and thoroughly tenderized, in the best way.
I've had over 15+ years of different kinds of bodywork on this meatsuit of mine, and have developed my own standard of what makes an excellent massage, for me:
1) Clear communication with CMT prior to session about boundaries, injuries, needs
2) Soothing, comforting atmosphere with an energetically clean space
3) Calibrating pressure on my body with CMT to develop a touch-based "shorthand"
4) Confidence and trust that my bodyworker has taken in and paid attention to all the needs we spoke about, so that I can completely drop into the session and let go.
5) Session customized/tailored to my needs and not just a rote "seque...
I tried a lot of places in the area before I found Miri. I am so grateful that our paths finally crossed. She knows exactly how to address whatever pain or issue I am dealing with and the relief I receive is immediate. She is also a joy to be around and her positive energy is uplifting. A wonderful experience through and through. Thank you Miri!
I would follow Miri to the moon and back! I waited weeks to get a massage because I knew she would be starting her own practice, and she was booked at her previous location. I'm beyond thrilled she is literally 5 minutes walking from my home now. I don't really see a point in getting a massage from someone else. I really appreciate how attentive Miri is, not only from what I say in the intake form and the chat beforehand, but I noticed that Miri really holds a memory of your body from previous sessions and gets lost in making it feel better. She is in conversation with your body, if that makes sense. She really cares.
Most of the time I ask her to work deep tissue, and she has a way of finding that bright spot of tension and following it all the way through to the source. She pays close attention, it feels as though she's in conversation with every muscle and knot.
The last time I saw her, I indulged in a hot stone massage, and asked her to try a lighter touch, just to see. Delicious trance state. Still that close focus and deep relaxation, my mind was able to let go and roam for the duration, and at the end I felt as altered as by deep tissue, but in a new way.
Miri is my massage therapist...and I would highly recommend her! She is amazing - perfect balance of strength with a soft touch. It is a very relaxing and invigorating experience! I am looking forward to many more incredible massages from Miri!
I had three massage therapy sessions w Miri. Let's just say that I've been getting massages by someone else who I thought was the best for the past 8 years... Miri has totally changed my mind! She is patient, and knows EXACTLY what my body/mind needed. I will never go back to anyone else but Miri. Thank you so much for taking care of me!
