Witnessing the depth transformation that takes place through bodywork inspires my work in the healing arts. I see bodywork as a co-creation between therapist and client. Each client is completely unique, so i believe the best approach as a therapist is to listen to what the client is saying and to what the physical body is expressing – to be fully present with an open heart.
|I believe physical, emotional and psychological states are deeply intertwined – in fact really just one state, being expressed energetically. Bodywork is a portal through which we can enter directly into the core of our experience to instigate and allow change on all levels. Greater ease of motion, breath, and being physically results in peace and harmony not just in the body, but mentally and emotionally as well.
In addition to bodywork, meditation practice and yoga have been important parts of my own healing journey. Over the last 10 years I have profoundly transformed my mind and body. It is my passion (and my good fortune!) to help others to move in the same direction – from pain, stress, stagnation and lethargy towards open mind, joyfulness, ease of motion and emotion, and energetic abundance.
Craniosacral Therapy is essentially deep listening and meditating on the health of the client – it looks beyond the surface issues of pain and disease to focus on the underlying waves of energy that inform our existence and connect us to the source of creation. This wavelike motion is expressed through the cerebrospinal fluid – clear fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The craniosacral therapist employs a light touch to palpate these waves of energy and to observe the fundamental health of the client. This simple witnessing acts as a mirror, allowing the client’s own nervous system to experience health and interconnectedness. This can allow dis-ease as experienced by the client to spontaneously dissipate, reabsorbed into the ocean of health that is our true nature.
