Welcome, and thank you for stopping by my website!
I am fully inoculated for Covid. I have been providing (and receiving) Zoom sessions over the last few years, and now am adding virtual Zoom sessions to my modalities; we can very effectively let your body tell its story even in the Zoom format – we can deeply listen to the sensations and images you are experiencing at the present moment. It is amazing how much this can allow your system to settle and expand your capacity for
- grounding, and overall well being.
This kind of work can be very helpful in giving you more skills for self regulation of your nervous system and allowing a sense of well-being and possibility.
To allow our work together to be as effective as possible (either by Zoom or in-person) I will be bringing grounding, safety and connection to the session. Then together we will discover, in an interactive way, what works best to settle your body security system and hear the story your system is sharing. I will ask you if there are things we can do to enhance your sense of safety in the room and during the session.
I will use principles and practices from the foundational trainings I have been participating in for the past 12 years since receiving my massage therapy license. This includes:
- Alchemical Alignment,
- Somatic Experiencing,
- Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy,
- Integrated Pre and Perinatal Healing,
- Myofascial Release Massage, and
- Breath and Sound Therapy.
Together, we can understand and allow difficult patterns from the past to dissolve, and bring wholeness, resilience, rejuvenation, stability to the present moment. This is work we will do in the present moment, with the sensations and images that come to your awareness during the session. (Please note, I am not a psychological therapist, I am a body worker. This work we will do is not regression or cathartic therapy; we will stay with the present moment with physiology, sensations and images.)
By listening to the body security system (aka “nervous” system), and using communication skills, this is different than a traditional massage, where I as practitioner focus almost exclusively on the tension and thickened musculature in your body. Instead, we will partner in discovery of healing that is right for you in the present moment. I am a facilitator rather than a healer. This is an important distinction. Your system has everything it needs for healing and I will be with you in discovering where your body’s inherent capacities for healing have an “imprint” from the past inhibiting the healing. The healing often continues after the session, as the body slowly continues the process that got started during the session.
Your results and benefits will be optimal if you have an intention for the session. I will ask about your intention(s) for the session. This can be as simple as having more ease, feeling more safety, feeling more peaceful, and can be related to your whole body and being, or specific parts of your body, awareness, and breathing.
