“Forearm Dance... a proven method of addressing client tightness and pain, while at the same time alleviating the stress a massage therapist's body can experience from doing multiple sessions in a day”
“Six years ago I fell doing a domestic chore at home and tore ligaments in my foot and leg. After a year of trying to ignore my discomfort, I set out to find relief. Through trial and error I discovered Val. Even armed with her number I stalled to make an appointment. In truth I am not a fan of being touched by strangers. Or so I thought. Val immediately put me at ease. She knew instantly what wasn't working and what needed to go where and how she was going to get it there. This pretty, blonde, unassuming surfer mom guided me out of pain in short order. Over time she has given me greater range of motion that I had as a teenager. She's smart, intuitive, and generous of spirit. I consider myself very lucky to have found Val Guin”
“Val Guin is more than a masseuse, more than an energy worker, more than a body worker. She makes substantive changes in my person and my body. I see Val at least once a month to make sure I am not creating issues by teaching as often as I do. I rarely tell her what is going on with me and yet she inevitably goes right to the spot that is problematic. Val’s integrity, honesty and skill are beyond compare. "
“Deep work, pain free...Forearm Dance is versatile... ”
“Put less strain on your body and work more deeply... the Forearm Dance is as invigorating for the practitioner as it is healing for the client”
“I am an attorney in my 50's and have been working with Val for over 15 years. I also take ballet class 3-4 times a week, so my body definitely needs to be constantly attended to. Val is so knowledgeable and caring. I feel truly blessed to be able to receive her expertise and I hope to do so for many more years!”
“Val... more curative for me than a trip to Lourdes”
“... Forearm Dance... a handsaving technique”
“Val is an incredible human being. She has a combination of intuition, talent, and compassion that is all too rare. I treasure my time with her.”
“It's rare to find a teacher with such incredible skill, wisdom, and a presence who is willing and wanting to share this with other practioners”
“As a therapist, my body thanks you! ... the nature of the Forearm Dance itself, is tremendous in allowing a massage therapist to work far and beyond the usual limitations. I think this technique will be invaluable to body workers and extremely efficacious clients!”
"I'd refer Val to the entire planet if I could! I have never seen anyone with such expertise, knowledge and healing power."
