with Madia Swicord
Yogassage is a form of bodywork that incorporates assisted yoga asanas (poses) and therapeutic massage techniques. I combine stretching and tissue manipulation. Degrees of client participation varies from passive to full involvement. Techniques used in yogassage is similar to Thai Massage yet quite different.
Yogassage sessions can be tailored to the individual, soothing aching backs or joints, releasing tensions in busy muscles, or invigorating the circulation of the body and awareness of the mind. It can target certain muscle groups, and encourages the deepening of postures and the release of unhealthy body holding patterns. It can incorporate joint mobilization, breath work, and hand skills, or simply a passive system of stretching. It has been used by athletes and non-athletes alike to aid in physical and mental well-being.

Who Am I
I am a teacher and therapist with a wide range of expertise and experience. I am a licensed and skilled practitioner that has many years of combined experience and training to provide personalized care for optimal health, improved functioning, and rejuvenation. I continually enhance my skills through ongoing advanced training and practice a wide range of techniques and modalities in order to effectively and positively impact a client/students health.
I am utilizing my B.S. degree in Psychology and Exercise Physiology with over 15 years of experience to offer you the best mind/body therapies possible. I began studying Mind/Body philosophy at age 16 by reading the book “Biology of Hope” by Norman Cousins, MD. He coined the term “psycho-neuro-immunology:
I received my first teaching Certification in Hatha Yoga from Lex Gillan and later received a Certification in Vinyasa Flow Yoga and YA-200 from Stephanie Keach. I have taken workshops with Ranjani Cobo, Bryant Kest, Shiva Rea, Doug Kellor and many others. My strongest influence has been Ashtanga Yoga and have always found the importance of mindful breath and alignment within the flow…. a blissful aspect of the yoga experience.
I have also been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1995 and am AMTA certified.
I Created and Managed “madia’s studio” from 2000-2010 and after having a child, decided that managing employees was no longer of interest to me and was not where I wanted to expend my energy. It is such a pleasure to be in private practice again to bring all my experience and attention into a laser beam focus on my clients and students.
Bamboo is one my inspirations for optimal health because of its integration of complimentary qualities. As an ancient saying goes: Be like bamboo. It is strong on the outside and soft and open on the inside. The stem stands freely in the wind and bends, it does not resist. What bends is harder to break.
We are at our healthiest when we integrate complimentary qualities: strength and resilience, with yielding and ease. Massage and yoga can help to foster this dynamic, healthy balance.
