Receiving bodywork has been the most consistent and powerful pathway of obtaining health and increasing self awareness I have experienced in my almost 50 years of living.  As a true believer and experienced provider and recipient of Soma and massage, I am honored to pass on the work to my clients who want to experience the gift of physical and emotional balance: freedom of pain, healing from injury, nurturing the immune system, increased flexibility and grace, self awareness and internal peace.

To receive bodywork is an act of kindness to self.  You will become your own healer through the body’s divine wisdom.  You will gain the experience of how to be your own sacred, compassionate witness so that healing occurs through the many layers that lead to the core of who you are.  All of this can be done with the touch of wise hands and the act of deep listening.  Deep listening occurs through the sensations you feel in your tissues, bones, nervous system, the pattern of your breath.  All of these link to the conscious and unconscious mind, allowing an unfolding that promotes increased functioning of homeostasis throughout the all systems of body.

The varied disciplines of bodywork and energy medicine that I practice are all pathways to increased vitality and self understanding.  Each modality acts as a tool to promote physical healing.   For thousands of years, healers around the world have been keeping bodywork traditions alive because of the powerful effects they produce.  When we are physically healthy and embodied, we live life more fully.

A little bit about Soma Neuromuscular Integration:

Not everyone knows about Soma Neuromuscular Integration.  In a nutshell, it is a discipline of bodywork from an osteopathic tradition that focuses on transforming physical structure and emotional well being.  How one lives in their body in stillness and in motion, determines how they perceive, interpret, and respond to life.  Emotional and physical transformation occur when the the body releases historical physical holding patterns of injury, emotional experience, the effects of gravity on the body, and daily movement patterns.  When someone’s  body is released via the fascial web in this discipline, the nervous system has a chance to recalibrate, the body moves and lives with working suspension mechanics, giving people a chance to regain physical alignment and an emotional center point.  In turn, one’s response to life becomes authentic because life is lived in the present moment.
