Doctor Posture a.k.a. Roger Golten presents
More Than a Deep Tissue Massage in London – The 50,000 Mile Service for the Body
If you are looking for the best deep tissue massage London has to offer, we can offer you something much better than standard deep tissue massage. Roger Golten trained first with Joseph Heller (Body of Knowledge Inc) in 1983 and Steven Shaw (Art of Swimming Ltd) in 1996. With a background in dance & sports, he has integrated his knowledge & experience to be able to make a lasting difference in Structure, Function and attitude with his clients using a powerful programme which combines manipulation of the soft tissues, coaching in movement and teaching the principles underlying good use of the body. His book The Owners Guide to the Body was published in 1999 and he has a B.A. (Hons) in Economics, History & Politics from Keele University.
Hellerwork is a short, intensive, and systematic course of one-to-one treatment that transforms your relationship with your body and your experience of being alive.
The treatment is educational as well as therapeutic because it combines the deep connective tissue bodywork with coaching on how to sit, stand, walk and breathe with more effortless ease, and it relates and integrates the body and the mind, so you get the keys back to your vehicle!
Many people experience their bodies as a collection of parts and symptoms. Hellerwork gives you the wonderful experience of being all joined up again. Wheels tracked and balanced, SatNav & power steering on!
If you find regular or even so called “deep tissue” massage irritatingly superficial then I am your man!! In 2013 I will be celebrating 30 years of continuous full-time practice in Central London. You can benefit from this and experience the finest deep tisse massage in London by booking a session with me. You will then find out why so many people have endorsed my work (see endorsements) and written about me (see articles).
Roger’s book The Owners Guide To The Body is a great place to start incorporating everything Roger teaches. Roger’s background and experience mark him out as an inspiring & motivational teacher, and that’s why he is Doctor Posture!
Get your body up to date with your brilliant mind!
The Hellerwork program is designed to recondition the body after it has gone through the misaligning and ageing processes. This requires releasing the rigidity from the connective tissue and changing the physical, mental and emotional patterns that caused the tissue to become rigid in the first place.
The release of old tensions and the new focus on economy of effort free the client to expand more energy in more constructive and creative ways.
The Core Of Hellerwork
The “Sleeve” – this consists of the body’s superficial muscles and connective tissue.
The “Core” – the body’s deeper muscles and connective tissues
Sessions 1-3 – the “superficial” sessions of the programme, concentrate on the body’s “sleeve”. They deal with the issues of infancy and childhood: breathing, standing up and reaching out.
Sessions 4-7 – the “core” sessions of the programme – probe beyond the sleeve. Core muscles tend to be under-used, tight and immobile: they are called the “intrinsic” muscles as they control our underlying structure. Harmonising these muscles produces more graceful movement. Core issues are those associated with adolescence control and surrender, gut feelings, holding back or expressing feelings and the balance between reason and passion.
The integrative sessions – bring together the superficial and core sessions and align the unique patterns of an individual client’s body. Developmental issues associated with the sessions centre on maturity, masculine and feminine styles and values, as well as integration and coming out into the world.
