VastRoot is Going on Hiatus…

Posted by:

This post pains me to write, so I won’t beat around the bush:

After October 6th 2016, I will not be accepting appointments until at least December. VastRoot operations are being put on hiatus. 

The Reason

Many of you will remember that I suffered a major loss in the spring. Since then, I’ve been trying to juggle family responsibilities, run multiple businesses and projects on opposite coasts, and also find space to mourn the loss of my brother (and NY business ...

Moving on Up: VastRoot is Growing…Again!

Posted by:

Hi folks, it’s BIG NEWS TIME again! VastRoot is moving to a private studio! I’m going where destiny beckons and springing forward into the future by opening my own space.

It struck me as odd that he would intentionally get up that early just to sit in meditation in the dark, but then again, the habits ...

Integrative Bodywork: The VastRoot Approach

Posted by:

The first question anyone asks when they find out I’m a Certified Massage Therapist is “What type of massage do you practice?” The term I use is Integrative Bodywork – a compact name for an expansive concept. It usually requires more explanation and that’s great! I love my work and jump at the chance to share it.

So what does “Integrative Bodywork” actually mean? To integrate is to unite one or more distinct parts into a whole. “Integrative” is the adjective form and is often used to describe fields characterized by a holistic, inclusive, and unifying ...
