At The Spa Room, Feldenkrais expert practitioner and choreographer Daniel Burkholder imparts the secrets of day-to-day back preservation, improving bodily awareness and optimizing comfort in the workplace. Every Feldenkrais workshop focuses on the Feldenkrais method’s techniques for breaking the sitting habits that cause common burdens such as shoulder pain, neck aches, general tightness, muscle tension, and uncontrollable arm-wrestling challenges. Elements of physics, neurology, and physiology fuse into one ligament-liberating approach in the Feldenkrais method, which guides unburdened bodies toward movement awareness and myriad physical benefits, including improving posture and reducing pain. An included take-home guide keeps the ergonomics rolling at home or in the office. To further ease and strengthen bodies, patrons meet for individual integration sessions tailored to specific workplaces and back pains. Practicable anywhere, the Feldenkrais method’s gentle movements re-acquaints students with their lower backs faster and easier than starting a mutual correspondence.
The Spa Room
It’s easier to connect The Spa Room’s seeming hodgepodge of treatments if you look at owner Mary Szegda. Her background and training includes a master of arts degree in applied psychology, a certification for infant massage instructorship, a massage-therapy license, and training in the Feldenkrais method—a therapy designed to pinpoint and correct habits that can cause shoulder pain and muscle tension.
Together, Mary and her skilled staff, administer Swedish and prenatal massage, aromatherapy treatments, craniosacral therapy, and spa services such as a hand treatment that combines pomegranate cream and paraffin. The staff holds four advanced degrees among themselves, and several of them have experience teaching at the university level. Most of them have served as lead or assistant teachers at local massage schools. In addition, The Spa Room offers a variety of classes and workshops including massage education, infant-massage instruction, and restorative yoga.
