Office appointments available.
Each appointment includes a telehealth intake conversation and an in-person bodywork session. The service is not shorter than it used to be. It is split into two parts so that we can reduce our time in close contact.
- Step 1: Schedule your in-office visit (30-45 minutes).
A hands-on bodywork session to provide relief from persistent pain, stress and movement challenges–mostly Bowenwork, perhaps a bit of massage. If applicable, you may also receive a post-visit email with at-home movement or relaxation practices to support the progress made in the office. In-office sessions are available on Wednesdays and Thursdays, only.
We are still learning more about the virus, but my research suggests that risk of transmission may be significantly increased by spending more than 30 minutes in close contact in a small enclosed space. We can do an incredible amount of good with 30 minutes of hands-on time.
- Step 2: Schedule a phone consultation to occur in the 1-2 days before your in-office visit (15-30 minutes – included in cost of in-office appointment)
The phone call includes a conversation about the reason for your visit, recent health changes, health history (as needed) and a COVID-related wellness screening.
If it’s your first appointment–or if it’s your first appointment since February 2020–we you can expect our chat to be up to 25 minutes long. If it is a follow-up visit, the conversation will take 10-15 minutes, or as long as it takes for you to update me on how your body has been feeling since our previous session.
The telephone conversation is a required prerequisite for your in-office visit. The purpose of this phone conversation is to do most of our pre-appointment conversation remotely, so we can use our close contact time for hands-on bodywork.
Please fill out and submit forms prior to your phone consultation.
Phone consultation and in-office session can be scheduled online through the Be Fluid Bodywork website or by contacting Patricia Hopper by phone, email or text message.

Bowenwork is extremely effective for both relaxation and pain relief. It has the added benefit of being highly effective through application of light touch, which is safer during a time when undiagnosed illness is more likely than during normal times. During Bowenwork sessions, the practitioner leaves the room frequently for short pauses. This reduces the amount of time practitioner and client are in close contact and the opening and closing of the door throughout the session may provide some additional ventilation. The client can remain clothed during Bowenwork sessions. Most importantly, Bowenwork is very effective for producing body-wide change in an abbreviated session format.
Traditional massage and in-person movement sessions are on hold for now. In this first phase of re-opening, traditional massage is not offered due to the extended contact it requires to provide relief, use of lotions and/or creams, extending time and exposure in the office by undressing and dressing again, and potential for contraindications related to the potential for blood clotting that could be present in undiagnosed, asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic cases of COVID-19.
