A therapeutic massage helps to lengthen, decompress, and unwind the spine as it increases circulation. Structural integration works to realign and rebalance the body, whereas deep-tissue bodywork relieves aches and pains. During the couples massage class, which is taught by Steven and Holly Padgen, couples learn how to give and receive 60-minute professional massages from their partners.
Padgen Institute of Healing Arts
In the human body, issues such as pain and limited mobility rarely stem from a single cause. That's why the Padgen Institute fused four massage styles into a signature method, instead of sticking to one approach. More than 20 years of practice provide the basis for the Padgen Method, which calls on both elements of structural integration to align the joints and lengthen fascia and craniosacral therapy to jump-start the body's own healing mechanisms. At the same time, Swedish and Esalen massage techniques ease tension lurking just beneath the surface. At his eponymous Padgen Institute of Healing Arts, Steven personally instructs each therapist in the ways of his signature technique to ensure that he or she can ease pain and help realign energy pathways.
