Corey Pawsek, LMT
I have been working within the Healing Arts for 10 years as a Yoga Instructor and Massage Therapist. I have a bachelors degree in Bio Medical Sciences and work to bridge the gap between western rehabilitative methods and traditional healing. I graduated from the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy and have trained as a Doula.
I specialize in work with the Prenatal and Post Partum population. As an Arvigo® Therapist and a mother of three I have the tools and first hand experience to serve these clients.
My technical bodywork training is in Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT), Myofascial Release (MFR), Thai Massage, Shiatsu and Deep Feet Oriental Bar Therapy or Ashiatsu and The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Adbominal Therapy®.
I have coined my work Integrated Therapeutic Massage as I blend all of these modalities into each session as needed. NMT is Trigger Point work and MFR works specifically with the Connective Tissue or Facia, both of these practices work to restore proper movement, circulation and correct postural issues. Thai Massage & Shiatsu include compression and deep stretching of the body, restoring energy flow and increasing range of motion. With Ashiatsu I make use of my feet for deeper pressure, broader strokes and a more grounding session. As an Arvigo Therapist I have the training, tools and education to aid in those seeking relief from digestive and reproductive issues. This work is deeply geared towards the correct alignment of the Organs within the abdominal cavity and the restoration of circulation (blood/lymph & chi).
*Clients seeking Arvigo Therapy® include but are not limited to those experiencing Troubled Breathing, Irritable Bowel Syndrome,Indigestion, Constipation, Heartburn, Uterine Prolapse, Incontinence, Restriction or pain due to previous abdominal surgeries, Scar Tissue, Adhesions, Menstrual Pains, Heavy Menses, Lack of Menstruation/Irregularities, Fertility Challenges.
I incorporate all of my training, knowledge and Intuition within my work as a teacher & therapist. I have a passion for learning, and curiosity for life. I am grateful for every encounter with my clients and students as it offers me new perspective, aiding in my ability to share the gift of holistic healing.

I look forward to working with you.
