YOUR BODY IS YOUR GREATEST SUPPORT

YOU ARE A UNQUE EXPRESSION OF LIFE ON EARTH

Wherever you find yourself in life and however you feel about it – whatever you want to do next – there is one thing I know. Your body has been with you every step of the way. It carries your best sense of what you want for yourself.

No matter the hardships you have endured. If you’ve lost track of your desires or find yourself in a bind -your body has been with you every step of the way. It is your best guide forward into the life that is waiting for you now.

WholeBody Living is a place to come together, to learn and to explore, to heal and to grow. I offer tools and techniques, resonant accompaniment and a safe space to explore – with the support of a group or one-on-one.

Somatic Inquiry

90 minutes is recommended for your first visit in order to ensure that there is enough time to explore, after preliminary conversation. Credit cards are accepted and online booking is available.

Somatic inquiry is a way to re-establish and deepen a supportive working relationship with your body.

Somatic inquiry is a process of asking questions into the body. Clear questions, asked with curiosity, access the body’s creative capacity and invite innovation. They can deepen body awareness as well as shift old patterns and habits, held in the body, that no longer support you.

Your body carries a record of every moment of your life. It is your constant companion and it works endlessly; doing the best it can to keep you safe and to provide you with what you desire.

Somatic inquiry allows you to develop a working relationship with your body, and to learn its language – sensation, movement, and impulse. Tracking sensation in response to inquiry can help you understand how your body is supporting your wellbeing as well as what resources or actions would be helpful.

Somatic inquiry is a trauma-informed approach aimed at reducing long-standing chronic pain and restriction, relieving the impacts of past trauma, and achieving confidence in expressing who you are. A unique integrated treatment that supports well-being on all levels – body, mind and spirit.

Somatic Inquiry is a unique approach that arose from my training in bodywork while simultaneously training in energy healing. My studies in relational neuroscience, neuroplasticity and the physiology of trauma and self-regulation have refined the work.

Registered Massage Therapy

Current Rates:
60 minutes $120
90 minutes $160

90 minutes is recommended for your first visit in order to ensure that there is enough time for a thorough treatment, following the initial assessment. Credit cards are accepted and online booking is available.

I provide precise treatment to the main areas of concern, while supporting full body integration of any changes as they occur. Primary techniques include fascial mobilization and release, cranio-sacral therapy and visceral mobilization. These techniques involve grip and light stretch and so use of lotion is minimal, if it is used at all. These techniques can be applied through clothing.

I will address the symptoms and areas that are troubling you and other areas that maybe contributing to your symptoms. For example, symptoms of Tennis Elbow may benefit from treatment of the hand, wrist and forearm. Hip pain may be referred from the low back. The goal is to provide relief of the familiar symptoms as well as address any structural patterns that may be contributing to your symptoms.

I am particularly interested in working on chronic patterns and symptoms that persist (and sometimes appear) long after the initial injury. It is very satisfying to see a gradual increase in activity and reduction of symptoms in patterns that seemed as though they were here to stay.

“Registered Massage Therapy”  is a medical treatment defined by and limited to its Scope of Practice.

It is the health profession in which a person provides, for the purposes of developing, maintaining, rehabilitating or augmenting physical function, or relieving pain or promoting health, the services of
(a) assessment of soft tissue and joints of the body, and
(b) treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction, injury, pain and disorders of soft tissue and joints of the body by manipulation, mobilization and other manual methods.

Constellations

A systemic constellation is a process by which:

 A Seeker: a person who wants some insight or information about a question or issue chooses…
Representatives: people to stand-in for family members, friends, colleagues, places or even concepts that are key players in the system they are inquiring into, with the help of a…
Facilitator: an experienced individual who guides the process

The seeker physically places the representatives in relation to one another (for example, side by side, or in front or behind one another, close to or further away). The seeker then sits down to observe.
The facilitator allows the representatives to feel into their roles with their bodies and then inquires into their physical and mental state. Eventually the representatives move into new positions relative to each other and more information becomes available.
Often the facilitator will suggest words that the representatives can say that may help reveal, reconcile and even resolve issues between them. Hearing representatives speak, and seeing them physically standing in new  orientations, can give the seeker useful and often healing insights.

At a high level, resolution comes in a constellation when, according to Hellinger, what has been pulled apart is joined again, or what has been inappropriately joined is separated. For example, a lost child is acknowledged – is seen and felt to belong to the family again, or a child who has taken on a parental role with a sibling is released from that inappropriate role in the social order.
This can be a healing experience for the system as a whole, as well as for the individual seeker.
