The benefits of yoga are numerous. You can relieve pain, improve posture, develop strength and endurance, heal physically and emotionally, reduce depression, focus, lose weight, and rejuvenate. Our yoga studio offers hatha yoga with an influence of Iyengar yoga. In each of our yoga classes, our most common feedback is that our students are “so relaxed” after class.
We provide personalized attention with small class sizes to help you get the most out of your yoga practice. We make sure you get the best yoga foundation to help you find balance in your mind, body and spirit. Are you ready to feel better?
Are you in pain? Not getting relief? Been to doctors, physical therapists, but you still hurt? So glad you found us! Our clinical massage team specializes in rehabilitative and advanced postural massage techniques to help create balance in the physical and energy body. When your body is balanced, the organs, joints and systems work with little or no stress which prevents injury, and excess wear as you age.
The Posture Project, is Woodstock’s Clinical Massage Team. Our therapists have a combined field experience of over 50 years that share a passion for understanding the body and improving health and balance for ourselves, as well as our clients.
We communicate with each individual to find your specific needs. Taking into account your everyday activities, possible injuries, stress level and emotional state, we use our intuition combined with our experience and skilled techniques to create a unique healing experience for you.
Our team specializes in low back pain, hip and shoulder pain, neck pain, knee pain, rotator cuff injuries, sciatic nerve pain, and carpal tunnel and thoracic outlet syndromes.
Through our own experience, we have learned that massage is a necessity, not a luxury. It is an incredible means to maintain good health, keeping your body in balance and feeling good. Clinical massage not only rehabilitates injuries, it can help prevent them as well. Your body needs proper maintenance for ultimate daily performance and activity, just like your car needs regular oil changes to maintain its daily good performance.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) with Shalan Hill
Do you or someone you know suffer from Migraine Headaches, Chronic Neck and Back Pain, a concussion or Chronic Fatigue?
Then, you might be in need of a Craniosacral Therapy session. (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system which is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction like those listed above, as well as Motor-Coordination Impairments, Colic, Autism, Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries, or Central Nervous System Disorders.
CST is of great assistance if you’ve just had surgery to reset your systems and also if you are recovering and massage is not yet possible.
Contact us to see if Craniosacral Therapy is right for you.
60 Min. Energy Tune Ups with Shalan Hill
Shalan will follow your body’s guidance and clear and balance your chakras (energy centers along your spine) and, if time permits, tune up your meridians (energy channels) by strengthening and balancing the flow of energy to your organs and muscles.
Things feel so much better when your energy is in sync and flowing in a balanced way.
Some other benefits are:
- Boost vitality and stamina
- Strengthen your immune system
- Relieve pain and common complaints
- Sharpen your memory and mind
- Keep yourself healthy and balanced
An Energy Tune-up is the same price as a massage and can be utilized instead of a massage for memberships or packages.
Energy Tune-ups are also a great option if for some reason massage is not appropriate for you due to surgery, skin conditions, or personal preferences.
Energy Tune-ups can also be done remotely. Since we are working with energy, we do not have to be in the same place to effect the energy system just as well. Great if you are quaratined or not comfortable with in person sessions at this time.

Our infrared sauna can help you Detox, lose weight, reduce pain, relieve stress and much more in our infrared Sauna. This dry sauna has natural healing powers of the sun without the harmful ultraviolet rays. It is made of hemlock wood which will prevent most any allergic reactions from occurring in sensitive people.
Our Infrared Sauna is a dry sauna using ceramic infrared heaters that produce radiant energy, which is the same as the heat from the sun, only without the harmful ultraviolet rays.
In an Infrared Sauna, the therapeutic operating temperature is much cooler, 110°-130°F, compared to a traditional sauna needing temperatures of 169°-200°F. The air is more pleasant and easier to breathe, so one can withstand longer therapy sessions, resulting in increased sweat production and does not dry out the mucous membranes like conventional saunas. The lower heat ranges may also be safer for those with cardiovascular risks.
Infrared Saunas can produce up to three times the sweat volume. Sauna benefits are thought to be seven times more effective at detoxifying mercury, aluminum, cholesterols, nicotine, alcohol, and other environmental toxins than conventional saunas.
