Bodywork

"A biodynamic system is not viewed as one that has a disease or an illness but rather as one that contains unconditional health and balance located within the depths of the fluids. It is not that the body doesn't have disease or illness but rather that disease and illness are compensations created by the Breath of Life to get our attention."

- Franklin Sills


Each session will be tailored to your specific needs be it stress relief, speed healing from injury or to alleviate discomfort from chronic pain. A typical session may include traditional massage therapy, craniosacral therapy and a dialogue technique called "Focusing".

Massage Therapy
A variety of techniques are blended including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, and Trigger Point. The muscles are massaged with the appropriate amount of pressure to produce the greatest effect for release of muscle tension and/or stress reduction. Due to the interconnectedness of the mind and body, Craniosacral Therapy and or Focusing may also be utilized.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
The emphasis in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is to help contact the forces, which underlie and heal patterns of disease and illness in the body, its fluids and the mind. This involves the practitioner developing finely-tuned skills of palpation and perception to sense the more subtle rhythms of the body, and the interaction of these rhythms with patterns of distress or congestion.

The intention of treatment is to patiently allow the body to self-heal and self-regulate. It is done in a non-invasive way with light, hands-on contact. The practitioner's deep and clear quality of presence can also become a reflective mirror for the patient and an invaluable catalyst for the potential for change in the central nervous system and body.

Focusing
Focusing is a dialogue technique developed by Eugene Gendlin. It consists of specific steps for getting a body sense of how you are in a particular life situation. When you pay attention to the body sense it will open up into words or images and you experience a felt shift in your body. The whole issue looks different and new solutions arise.

Classes &
Workshops

Kripalu Yoga for beginners

This class focuses on basic postures. Ensuring proper alignment, observing breath, and holding postures in order to familiarize ourselves with ego and the role it plays in our lives. The primary goal is to begin the process of creating "witness consciousness." More specifically, offering you tools that will allow you to watch whatever is unfolding, internally or externally, from a curious or emotionally dispassionate perspective.
You are guided to move at your own pace, honoring your body's needs in each moment.

Workshops
(Available one on one or for groups)

The Joy of Food
This workshop is designed to explore the world of food and our relationship with it. If you find yourself obsessing about what you "should" or "should not" eat, or if eating certain foods trigger negative feelings, then I recommend you take this workshop. We'll look at why certain foods are addictive. Why 95% of diets fail, and much more. I'll lead you through exercises that will help you take a closer look at what you want your relationship with food to be. You will leave with at least one goal that will bring you closer to that relationship.

I am also available to develop stress management workshops for your business or industry.
