Letitia Bunge

Letitia has been part of the Thrive Wellness Center community of providers since February 2017. She offers the following services at Thrive By Appointment Monday through Saturday.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY:  Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure (5 minutes or more) into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” allows the fascia to elongate and therefore release.

Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.

POLARITY THERAPY: Polarity Therapy breaks up energetic blockages, whether physical, mental or emotional, so that the body can heal. The client wears loose-fitting clothes during the session which consists of light to deep touch on acupressure points and other areas of the body and can address any issue from disease to pain and tightness to trauma and anxiety. These symptoms are the body’s way of asking for attention and not to be ignored or feared.  By listening to the body and combining bodywork and nutrition with self-help skills, clients learn to heal themselves and what health feels like.  

POLARITY REFLEXOLOGY: Polarity Reflexology addresses the entire body like Polarity Therapy, but the work is done only on the feet.  Reflexology can relieve tightness in  the shoulders, for example, without actually touching the shoulders, if that touch is too painful.

LASER LYMPHATIC THERAPY: Laser Lymphatic Therapy is based on Polarity Therapy with the addition of a handheld laser to further stimulate the movement of lymph.  This therapy is especially effective in reducing edema (fluid retention) after surgery or childbirth.

  • Polarity Reflexology

Both these classes will be available in an abbreviated curriculum for those wishing to work on themselves and/or family and friends as well as in a full curriculum for those wishing to be certified.
