My intention as a therapist is to engage the body's innate capacity for healing and resilience. I employ an integrated approach combining massage therapy, breath and body awareness, patient education, and a trauma informed knowledge of the nervous system.
REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY
Registered Massage Therapy offers a vast array of health benefits and is an excellent natural treatment option for pain management, rehabilitation from injury as well as a preventative measure to assist with general well being.
Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a technique that was developed to resolve the symptoms of trauma in your body, such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and other diseases. It is a holistic approach that helps “re-set” your nervous system and establish a natural flow between mind and body.
“I have come to the conclusion that human beings are born with an innate capacity to triumph over trauma. I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening—a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation. I have little doubt that as individuals, families, communities, and even nations, we have the capacity to learn how to heal and prevent much of the damage done by trauma. In so doing, we will significantly increase our ability to achieve both our individual and collective dreams.”
