The Silk Swing Studio is the first of its kind teaching low mount Aerial Silk Therapeutics for Chronic Pain Relief and Mental Health. This luxurious, fun and easy to learn practice works with the bodies natural inclination to swing, bounce, writhe, roll, push, pull, and grip to regulate and restore all systems and processes. One Silk Swing experience delivers the combined benefits of exercise, massage, myofascial release, cranial sacral therapy, chiropractic, and healing touch all in one program. Part guidance and part intuition, guaranteed to soothe your nerves, release tissue tension, enhance viscoelasticity and psychic resiliency. 


 In 2014, at the age of 51, I suffered a traumatic automobile accident that disabled me for years with chronic pain, PTSD, deformity and disfigurement. Prior to that, I was an award winning athlete, business professional, multi-certified yoga Instructor and spiritual director. I had healed from paralysis in my late teens and an emergency C-Section in my early 30's. I saw every kind of traditional, complementary and alternative healer with little to no positive outcome. I scoured the internet and returned to medical school. I was desperate for a solution. And then, one day, it appeared. A simple piece of fabric. This fabric was like connective tissue, an external ligament that supported me as a womb, or a cocoon. My pain was assuaged and I felt whole again. My memories of power returned. At first I used one swing, then two, then three, the magic of the fabric drawing me deeper into its potential for healing. I reversed years of atrophy, numbness and depression. I even looked happy and talked with optimism about my future. My doctors called it a miracle.I came to believe, as one must in such circumstances, that this happened to me for a reason, my prior life a preparation for what was to become through it; an effective  solution for Chronic Pain, Neuromuscoloskeletal Trauma, and Complex Mental Health Conditions that are unresponsive to other forms of treatment. 

Aerial Silk's plasticity is perfectly suited to the human body's fluid dynamics and viscoelasticity. Unlike any other form of exercise or therapy on the market, the silks provide a fluid matrix for spiral stimulus of the body's mechanoreceptors in all layers and directions of connective tissue: fluids, neurons, tissues, organs, ligaments, muscles, tendons and bones. It provides weightless compression, resistance, tension and traction to reinforce intrinsic spiral connections, remodel soft tissue and elicit neurological response. The result is an immediate calming of the nervous system, followed by sensory integration, primal movement, fully oxygenated breathing, and sometimes, spontaneous utterance. As if the body knows what to do, and the swings encourage it to happen, stimulating generation, growth, and repair.
