Licensed Massage Therapist
Denise Maloney is a Licensed Massage Therapist and a comprehensively trained Pilates Instructor through Balanced Body. Denise has been practicing massage for over 10 years and Pilates for over 4 years at various fitness clubs, spas, yoga centers, and rehabilitation facilities.
Denise has a Fascial Therapy certification (myofascial massage) achieving over 240 hours through Taylor Techniques, learning protocols for fascial chains, osseous, and basic visceral. These myofascial techniques are very useful in management of pain due to over-use injuries, poor posture, stress/anxiety, or just general relaxation/promotion of well-being.
Denise has always practiced Pilates on the mat, and during her mat instructor training, she fell in love with the apparatus, and its therapeutic effects on her own body. This discovery lead her to her full apparatus Pilates training, learning how to strengthen people out of their habitual postures/physical manifestation of emotional collapse. Her lessons and manual therapy sessions complement each other and both relax and energize as much as they strengthen, uplift & restore appropriate tone.
ELDOA™️ Is a French acronym that in English translates to LOADS: longitudinal osteo-articular decoaptative strengthening/stretching. It is a system of osteo-articular warm-ups, proprioception exercises, functional strengthening exercises, myofascial stretches, and ending with decoaptations (eldoas- postures that put the fascia in tension from head to toe, held at maximum tension for up to one minute).
