Monika Tinneberg, n.d.
Myofascial Release Therapist

Monika Tinneberg has run BodyWork for Women (and their men) from her home in the Ottawa area for over 25 years.  Those decades of practise have led to an unusual style that is highly effective and supremely relaxing.

The predominant influence in her style of work comes from Chinese Therapeutic Massage and Myofascial Release Therapy. The treatments are at times vigorous, yet incredibly sedating, as the the larger muscle groups are ‘cajoled’ into releasing, plus taking extra time to work those contracted areas means a deeper tissue level is reached without undue pain. This results in your body truly being able to relax, take the treatment in and ultimately be more effective in affecting changes in the tissue, especially good for pain reduction, compacted joints, spine and neck and seized or contracted muscles.

Monika listens to the feedback signals that each body on her table sends, telling her when to release, when to move in deeper, when to leave or return. This enables an extremely tailored treatment as your body signals are listened to and lead the way.

Monika has studied Chinese Therapeutic Massage with Chongding Zhang, a traditional Chinese Medical doctor from China, who is also a Qi Gong Master. She apprenticed 1 year with Bill Rhodenizer of Fascial North, a physiotherapist in Ottawa, who practises solely Myofascial Release Therapy. She has done course work with the John Barnes passive Myofascial therapy seminars. She has completed course work with the Upledger Institute in lymphatic drainage and complimented that with further lymphatic drainage coursework with Janet McFarland, owner and teacher of Cookstown Physiotherapy.
