Shelby Woodall, Massage Therapist

I am a proud graduate of Arizona School of Integrative Studies in Flagstaff, AZ as of 2016. In the 800 hour massage therapy program, I studied Swedish/Deep Tissue Massage, and about 15 different intro based modalities in order to develop an integrative massage practice. I have completed a 130 hour Independent Study Program for Polarity Therapy with a beloved mentor, Suellen Trumbour-Cheney from Sedona, AZ. I am a certified Energetic Principle Practitioner with the renowned International Polarity Education Alliance. The goal of Polarity Therapy is to increase congruence with natural energy flow patterns through an understanding of Universal Energy as the substrate of all phenomena. I incorporate Energetic Bodywork, Yoga Movement, Nutritional Guidance and Meditative Practices with a strong influence of the 5 Elements recognized in the Polarity practice of Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. On a quest to further my understanding in the embodiment of Polarity Therapy, I sought out a Polarity Yoga Practitioner, Eleanora Lipton of EmPowerFlow Yoga. I began a yoga journey with Eleanora and Donna “Lakshmi Lightfoot” through Hatha Yoga and Polarity Yoga Elemental Principles in 2020, and continue to explore movement with them today. The most recent addition to my tool belt is BioDynamic CranioSacral Therapy. As of October 2023, I have completed a 200 Hr Program with the great Bone Mother and Director of The Polarity Center & Shamanic Studies, Rose Khalsa. Through my studies I seek to embrace the wisdom of my own body intelligence and understand our nervous systems through the lens of science and spirit.

My preferred modalities: Polarity Therapy, BioDynamic CranioSacral, Connective Tissue (Myofascial), Neuromuscular Therapy (Trigger point), Tragerwork, Tuina and Range of Motion (ROM/Stretching).

I combine different types of massage and energy balancing techniques to meet the needs of any given client, whether it be for chronic pain relief or pure relaxation. I work with curiosity and reverence during, before and after our sessions to invite a clear environment in which relaxation and/or self exploration comes with ease. I also work with much excitement in exploring referral points, energetic lines and pin-pointing chronic sources of pain in hopes of generating long term physical, emotional and mental relief. I believe that each system is unique, and I listen for the individual’s whole expression whether of mind, body, emotion and/or spirit to come forward in support of balancing and restorative sessions.

The session always goes beyond the table… I invite the awareness that it is up to You to heal and You have the power to do so. With loving support for your healing journey, I will extend nutritional guidance, energetic movements and meditative practices within Polarity Therapy Principles after any given session.
