A light-touch hands-on modality that works with the body's subtle tides to gently ease the body out of it's habitual patterns and back into health. It's often paired with Polarity therapy to heal nervous system dysfunctions and emotional traumas. It's recommended for anyone at any stage of their life, from pre-birth and newborn to those ready to pass on. It can be used to help recover quickly from surgery or any injury, and works well in combination with massage. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy is not a technique specific to the cranium, although it can include detailed work there, and is excellent at relieving headaches, TMJ and other dysfunctions in the head.

Nurturing, listening touch. Each type of touch has it's own purpose. And each body responds differently to different qualities of touch. My intentions with massage are to open up the stuck places, as appropriate, as they're ready to open; to enliven the body; to bring greater awareness to what's happening in your body; to help you settle and relax so the body can heal itself; and to provide loving, nurturing contact.
Techniques will be tailored to your individual needs. May include Swedish, deep tissue, lymph drainage, orthopedic, neuromuscular therapy, Phenomenal Touch, stretching, and reflexology.
Including life coaching and Polarity Two-chair. Re-pattern your nervous system through somatic coaching to recover from traumatic events, reduce anxiety and depression, and increase your capacity to experience more joy in life. May include techniques from Somatic Experiencing, Hakomi, Access Consciousness, and general awareness and mindfulness practices. Can be done before, during or after hands-on bodywork.
Are you ready to change habits with ease and create the life you want? This energy healing modality will at least feel like a deeply relaxing massage. At best it could change your life. I lightly touch specific points on the head to dissipate the electromagnetic charge that gets locked in the brain by the thoughts, feelings and emotions that have been stored over lifetimes. This helps open up space in your mind, body and spirit to more easily create the life you desire.
What to expect
In your first session, we'll take 10-20 minutes to discuss what's up for you right now. What are your needs and goals for your health? What is resourceful for you, or what feels good to you in your life? What are your current challenges and what would you like to improve? From there, we could either go into somatic coaching as you're seated or move right into hands-on bodywork on the table.
If you're receiving a massage, I will leave the room for you to undress in privacy to your level of comfort. For your comfort and mine, you will be fully draped with a clean sheet and blanket during the massage, with only the body part that I'm working on being undraped. If you are more comfortable being fully clothed, I can offer craniosacral therapy, Shiatsu, Thai massage and muscle energy techniques such as facilitated stretching and positional release - please wear comfortable, loose clothing in this case. You are welcome to choose the music, room temperature and depth of pressure to meet your needs.
During the session, I may guide you to notice specific things in your body. Physical sensations, emotions, and thoughts may surface, and that can all be informative in a healing session. Becoming aware of and curious about these details of your inner landscape can help transform and shift whatever issue you're working through. For the greatest change, it's important to be present during your session, not checked out or dissociated. Sometimes falling asleep during a session is restful, sometimes it's counter-productive. We'll work together to find the best solution for your nervous system and body at the time.
