Tummy Temple Newsflash:
New Practitioner, New Certifications
and New Service Offerings!

We are pleased to announce that Shelly Shelley, LMP has completed the requirements for her certification as a Clinical Visceral Massage Therapist.

Shelly completed 72 hours of course training and 25 case studies (3 sessions each) to achieve her certification from Love Your Guts Seminars under the supervision of Marty Ryan, LMP. Completing all course work, case studies and case study supervision entailed approximately 160 hours of study.

Through this process Shelly explored various ways to work with and optimize the digestive and reproductive systems through organ tonification and mobilization, nervous system calming, fascial release and breath work. This skill set addresses a number of conditions including acid reflux, constipation, irritable bowels and other chronic tension patterns of the digestive system. It can also address postural distortions, pelvic pain, fluid and energy congestion, and other reproductive and elimination difficulties.

This excellent, thorough program has given Shelly the skill set to work effectively in the belly and expand her scope of practice. She is especially excited about the impact of this work on her 11 session Soma Bodywork series of Structural Integration. She has witnessed significant improvement in the effectiveness of the series through addressing not only the myofascial (musculature) structures of the body, but also the organ structures. This has resulted in greater resolution of client symptoms overall.

Before undertaking this course work, Shelly often referred clients out for Visceral Massage, recognizing the importance of this essential component. Now, she can incorporate it directly into the 11 session series or offer an expanded series to treat more complex issues. In the expanded 13-14 session series we insert 2-3 sessions of Visceral Massage in between what we call the “Core Sessions” of the series, sessions 4-6. These sessions focus on restructuring and rebalancing the pelvis and are an excellent opportunity to expand structure and address chronic tension patterns in the digestive and reproductive systems.

Case Study Supervision Included:

• case study discussions
• treatment planning
• advanced training on treating the entire body via the belly
• work with surgeries and scar tissue
• skill set improvement and advanced techniques

Shelly would like to express her gratitude to all of our valued clients that participated and provided feedback for her case studies!

Her sessions are deeply relaxing and comprehensive. Combine all of her manual therapy skills together, and you can have a total cleansing and healing makeover in a matter of 2-3 hours.

We are thrilled to have her back in the area and a part of our team.

Nedra has a personal, life-long passion for the healing arts and has dabbled in just about all of them. Her most recent life experience has been with assisting those in the death and dying process with an emphasis on the energetic transition and peaceful passing.

Nedra has also served as a personal spiritual mentor for Kristi Zimmer since the beginning of her career and led her through shamanic practices, such as fire walking, in order to open channels within the mind. Nedra provides her therapies with these channels open and serves the client with significant insights.

Her bodywork approach is thorough, compassionately direct and holistic. She specializes in “scared clients” and those looking for an integrated meaning to their health crisis or goals. She will be providing colonics for an introductory rate of $75 per 1 hour session from May 29 through June 12th. Book an appointment with Nedra here
