As your therapist I am here to support, challenge and offer guidance thru prompts and holding of breath and movement.
I work like an architect: moving in procession, asking the finite muscles to fire & engage, merging consciousness with movement, coaxing the fascia to relax,bring balance to the structure and most important, creating space for whole body mind articulation Depending on what brings you in, we develop a blueprint to bring maximum wellbeing.
I use somatic healing in my sessions to gently guide your awareness to the inner body, the felt body, to reassure, encourage muscles to respond.
