Massage Therapy 

Persephone Godwin studied massage therapy at Cumberland Institute of Holistic Therapies, a school strongly focused on the mind-body-spirit connection. After many years of struggling with musculo-skeletal pain and inflammation, she had organized her life around herbs, aromatherapy, and massage therapy, in order to manage her own health related issues. With an intuitive understanding of the body and origins of pain, Persephone integrates Swedish massage with Jin Shin Do Acupressure, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Aromatherapy, and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage to help her clients understand and overcome pain and restrictions in their body. Her work is based around a strong belief in the body's (and mind's) ability to heal itself, with massage therapy being one tool to assist her clients along their healing path.

Foundation Training

Foundation Training is the method that T-X-S embraces as the must-know-antidote for pain and performance complaints, and it's the remedy to the time constraints and immobility of our modern lifestyle.
Foundation Training is literally the most natural way of moving the human body. If you have a human body, you are designed to do these movements. Awakening this innate potential through simple positions and movements, formerly untapped power and strength become your new natural state.

BioDensity

BioDensity exercises are based on the principals of osteogenic loading, a brief and intense resistance exercise designed to stimulate your bones’ natural ability to increase its density. T-X-S is one of only three locations in all of LA to house this amazing technology. One workout a week, completed in under 15 minutes results in increases of force production in the 100s to 1000s %. Anyone dedicated to their fitness as health cannot afford to miss bioDensity sessions. This is training for the new millennium.
