Lehigh Valley Healing Circle
Structural Bodywork, Medical Massage & Wellness
Welcome to Lehigh Valley Healing Circle, my name is Carol Jenkin, I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist and Structural Bodyworker. I provide a pathway toward healing many types of dysfunction where other forms of treatments have failed. Through battling my own physical pain and illnesses, along with my advanced training, hundreds of case studies, and a passion for healing others have encouraged me to develop skills and to have available the treatments that make it possible to quickly remove the muscular imbalances, debris, heavy metals, toxins and stored pockets of energy, that you have accumulated over time. Integrating these cost-effective treatments which give the body the ability to heal itself at a cellular level. Be open to the flow of resources that were not offered to you previously, giving you the power and knowledge to regain life.
Why Structural Balancing? Because it scientifically tracks down the sources of aches, pains, and dysfunctions not sufficiently responsive to the usual localized treatment (at the location of symptoms) of neuromuscular and myofascial structures. For more information on this unique approach to rehabilitating Chronic conditions please follow this link.
Common conditions associated with the core distortion and structural imbalances are a chronic back pain, pelvic pain, and pressure, some digestive issues, scoliosis, plantar fasciitis, one leg longer than the other, gird, degenerative disk disease, Fibromyalgia, TMJ disorder, nerve entrapment and more...
How is my approach different from traditional Massage?
My approach to bodywork has been addressing and eliminating postural distortions caused by muscular tension and muscular imbalances. It is my experience that many of the painful afflictions people suffer from are caused by the gravitational force that’s being continually applied to their body and the way their body painfully opposes it.
Most often (and rarely mentioned in modern medical practices) is the lack of understanding of how postural distortions have direct and negative effects on the body. These negative effects are often of the body being pulled down and forward by gravity, literally compressing the body cell by cell, molecule by molecule. On top of that, most people are not even aware that poor posture eventually leads to musculoskeletal pathology.
Through practice, I’ve evaluated and treated hundreds of people suffering from chronic pain. Most of the time, musculoskeletal pain is caused by the way the body opposes gravity inefficiently, meaning, their body weight has shifted off the bones and onto the muscles. This body shifting, altering and compensation often leads to a constant barrage of trigger point formation, referral of pain to distant areas, deviations (unevenness) in leg lengths, distortions in the pelvis and spine (misalignments), depressed or elevated shoulder girdles, as well as causing a collapsed (stooped or slouched) upper body and forward head positioning.

Structural Therapeutic Massage/SET Treatments
This medically-oriented form of structural massage is a combination of therapeutic specialties that are designed to remove the conditions that cause pain, to provide longer lasting results. The therapist will work with the collapsed areas of the body, which are creating pain when the imbalances are removed, natural healing occurs. Structural Massage is series of treatments which effectively alleviate symptoms of acute and chronic conditions. The practitioner utilizes well-established and tested massage and bodywork modalities to help clients work through scar-tissue restrictions, contracted and shortened muscles due to injury, the restricted tissue that fails to result in healing, and dehydrated muscle tissue that results in imbalance and further restrictions. Each treatment is based on the individual needs. For more information on Structural Energetic Therapy, please follow this link.
Integrating techniques which are used to remove the straining muscle patterns, and the postural restrictions causing pain and imbalances throughout the body. A postural analysis, advanced deep tissue massage protocols, neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, myofascial release and joint capsule work, active isolated stretching and more...
Deep Tissue Massage
The primary goal of deep tissue massage is to reduce pain and discomfort and still provide a relaxing massage — they also help “lengthen and release muscles” that frequently feel tense and get stuck in uncomfortable holding patterns. For a more therapeutic treatment, you would need to schedule a medical massage.
Cranial Structural Therapy & Frontal Occipital Decompression- Link- Post Concussion Syndrome
The Frontal/Occipital Decompression is a gentle and precise osteopathic cranial therapy, a very powerful detox for the brain. The rapid removal of Post Concussion Symptoms is the most impressive! It has proven to produce observable and measurable positive results in behavior, motor skills, coordination, reduction in anxiety, light sensitivity and the ability to concentrate. The Frontal Occipital Decompression reduces scar tissue and inflammation from head trauma or lack of sleep. We manually flush the brain, reduce sinus pressure, brain fog and inner ear swelling. Imagine the possibilities.
Infrared Sauna Therapy
The Full Spectrum Infrared sauna therapy is one of the least costly, safest and most powerful ways to eliminate toxic metals, toxic chemicals, chronic infections, cell regeneration, injury repair and so much more. In my opinion, the power of this machine is extremely underestimated! When it comes to improving your health, reversing illness, and just making you feel great, few things compare to an infrared sauna. Infrared saunas are clinically shown to help fight cancer, reduce blood pressure, relieve pain, reverse heart disease, provide weight loss, and give you a host of other health benefits.
Hair Mineral Analysis/Nutritional Balancing
What is a tissue mineral analysis? A trace mineral analysis is a test which measures the mineral content of your hair, in other words, a hair mineral analysis is a biopsy of your organs, including the brain tissue. If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair, it usually indicates a mineral deficiency or excess within the body or bio-unavailability. Nutritional balancing is a very affordable, individual approach to resetting you Bio-Chemistry, through a hair mineral analysis. Why is this important? ARL Lab will take the guesswork out of what your proper supplementation is needed so you can reach optimal health, giving your body and mind what it needs to function optimally, giving you the ability to fight and prevent current and future disease in your body. Nutritional supplement guessing can be more damaging than good
