Beth Heller is a licensed massage therapist and certified Aston-Patterner who has been with Southern Oregon Sports & Spine (formerly Heller Chiropractic) for over 20 years.
Developed by Judith Aston in the late 1970s, Aston-Patterning is an integrative approach to improving postural and movement patterns. It is particularly effective in chronic cases because it teaches the body new ways to hold itself. Beth’s work begins by evaluating the response of the whole body (mind/psyche) to the injury or longstanding postural patterns that cause pain. She looks at how your body has reacted to your life traumas, creating distortion and disharmony. She then begins to work, using a sequence of bodywork and movement therapies to help you unwind from your chronic pattern.
