The powerful combination of sensitively applied structural bodywork and functional (Somatic) education is that space is opened for the body to move in and then the body learns how to use the new space. As I work with you we will explore, through movement and facial release, your specific restrictions and work together to free them. Generally people experience feeling lighter, more balanced, flexible, energetic, and an ease which comes from moving without pain. Chronic symptoms of stiffness and pain are resolved when the body relearns to release habitual, guarded holding patterns and rediscovers it’s own natural alignment.
Private sessions allow us to work together in identifying your specific imbalances and determine the quickest and most efficient route toward your healing goals.
In addition to Structural Integration and Somatics I am trained in a wide variety of modalities, including:
- Craniosacral Therapy
- Muscle Energy Technique (Osteopathic Joint Manipulation)
- 3 Dimensional Myofascial Release
- Visceral Techniques
Your private session is customized to your individual mind / body’s specific needs. The work is comfortable, interactive, educational and promotes the awareness of movement in a way that honors the natural architecture of human form.
Specific movements are taught during each private session in order for your body to reinforce the changes that begin during a private session. Through repetition of new movement patterns your brain releases it’s old habituated holding patterns.
The movements you will learn are not exercises, they are Somatic movement patterns. They are organic movements that the body recognizes as inherently natural because they remind the body how it is designed to move effortlessly, without strain or tension. They allow you to return to your neutral alignment without being stuck in a painful tension pattern.
