CRISTOFER RUBINI, LMT
I have been practicing bodywork since 2006. From a very young age I was intrigued by the mind-body connection.
I have followed that source of fascination to a wonderful life that includes my loving wife Ally and two sons, Ever and Jaime and my two dogs Arlo and Kenzie. RIP Ruca
My free time is spent mostly with my family, enjoying all that Oregon has to offer: hiking, surfing, snowshoeing, biking, fishing..
I believe we each have an innate wisdom to feel and heal from wounds, whether they be externally or internally generated.
I want people to feel somatically freed
in the deepest way.
ABOUT THE WORK
My hands on work is based on integrating Myofascial Release and Manual Therapy approaches while also considering the deep connection between consciousness and the Central Nervous System. The body does not exist without the mind, and the mind needs the body to express itself.
Helping people to inhabit the body in the most comfortable, un-oppressed way possible is ongoing work, both professionally and personally.
Pain in the body can be signals of unresolved imbalances, whether from external or internal traumas.
If we listen and feel these signals wholly, I believe we can achieve something so simple and yet so elusive to many of us.
Bodywork sessions are designed to work with each individuals needs and experience level. Please do not hesitate to reach out and ask for more info.
My ultimate goal in working with people is Peace.
700 hour massage therapy certification program, focus in Awareness Oriented Structural Integration. I attended the Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork (PCAB) and studied directly with directors/owners Lee Joseph and Carole Madsen.
350 hour student teacher training program at PCAB. This year I started a perpetual mentor/friendship with Lee Joseph and he schooled me in Awareness Oriented Structural Integration, Hakomi, Gestalt therapy, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and instruction in Advaita Vedanta.
100 hour course in Advanced Foundations of Rolfing Structural Integration at the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO., formerly The Rolf Institute. Dr. Ida Rolf was an inspiration to my profession and the creator of Structural Integration.
This work is based on my study of different types of effective Myofascial Release techniques and a professional career spanning 15 years.
By combining anatomical and fascial understandings from Structural Integration with subtle listening skills developed through Presence Centered Awareness Therapy and Visionary Craniosacral Therapy, I endeavor to create a useful atmosphere for learning and receiving bodywork.
Educational environments are geared towards the bodyworker wishing to deepen in effectiveness in myofascial techniques and inner guidance as a practitioner.
Private bodywork sessions can range from deep listening in stillness to dynamic movement during hands-on application. The client will always be involved in some way.
Whether in the depths of the craniosacral rhythm or during effective movements, our session together can help relieve stress and pain throughout the body, create a deeper sense of balance, and can assist you in becoming a more comfortable human being.
