Somatic Energetic Emotional Therapy
Thy body is a network and a conduit of energy, which flows in and flows out, and sometimes...gets stuck and creates blocks around your heart or kidneys or hips or any other part that your psyche may be protecting.
We experience this in every day life as feeling "stuck". It's like, life is good...until it isn't. The flow isn't quite what we want with our partner, or our job. Maybe you feel tight and achy more than you wish. Or maybe you've experienced a personal trauma or tragedy that spins your world upside down. Even our present political and world news can make you feel pulled apart from your center.
I am not a life coach.
I am a life guard. my purpose is to help groups and individuals use their bodies to understand the healing being offered to them through physical emotions.
I love shadows.
I love dis-ease.
Because it all points directly toward what we are supposed to be paying attention to.
Like God is yelling, "LOVE THIS!"
So I will help you relieve your back pain, arthritis, thyroid dysfunction, and whatever else you bring to me, but not through a prescription pad. But rather, through deep body medicine. I help you access your emotional blocks by means of the body rather than talk therapy. It's faster, more effective and reaps benefits to the mind, body and spirit.
This work is potent, physical, personal, intuitive, life-changing, spiritual, simple and fun.
Your one on one work always begins with a free consultation. This can be done on the same day as your first session, or scheduled independently. Consultations usually last about 40 minutes, and sessions usually last 60-75 minutes.
Depending on your comfort level, we'll sit either on cushions or on chairs, and will transition as needed for somatic exercises. The custom floor is cushioned to welcome feet, knees or any other body part without discomfort.
The information you share is always confidential.
knowledge is power
Somatic Emotional Energetic therapy only works when you understand how emotions are expressed within you. I put great emphasis on education, as it will continue to inform you in your noticing for years to come. Your doctor is not talking about this, but they should be. You will immediately start to understand how your story lives in your body. Much like a sweater, we start pulling on one thread and let the unraveling lead us to the big picture.
The concepts are quite simple. Letting them heal you is your big work.
healing means loving
The prevention of flow in the body and in our life is usually marked by a void of loving attention. There are many layers to this: masculine and feminine; ego and higher self; our wounds and our enemies. You will be given exercises to practice these new levels of love. These are often the most life-changing. Life-changing is what we're after.
put it into practice
The only way for the body to truly heal its story is to act out what it has been holding in. This sounds intimidating, but anyone can do it. I do all of the exercises alongside you, and many of them will take you back to a simpler time, when you were a child--using your voice without words, pushing with your feet, twirling fabric and pulling with your hands. This is not play--they are motions that help you experience what you have not been able to access. Most everyone finds them relieving and enjoyable!
