WHAT TYPE OF bodyWORK DO YOU PRACTICE?

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a unique approach to health and well-being. It emphasizes Stillness as a gateway to experience the deep wisdom of one's body. The primary focus of the therapist is to be fully present in the moment and listen intently in order to sense the inherent intelligence of the human body, dropping any notion of doing, or any expectations or goals. There is no external force or will exerted by the therapist. All healing comes from deep within the person, facilitated by deep listening by the therapist and surrender to innate wisdom that created and sustained all life.

Qi Gong Energy Healing is an ancient Chinese healing art that nourishes the body on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. The healing takes place in a relaxed meditative state, where a person can receive the restorative power of the universal live force called Qi. It goes beyond addressing health concerns to support clients on their quest of self discovery.

Tui Na is a bodywork rooted in Taoist philosophy and is one of the pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine the human body has twelve main energy meridians which correspond to our vital organs. Specific points along the meridians can be stimulated on the surface of the body to balance and harmonize the flow of energy and improve the functions of our organism. Tui Na literally translates as "push" and "pull" manipulations. This hands-on bodywork incorporates deep tissue manipulations, acupressure techniques, and stretches.      

Visceral Therapy is the massage of internal organs of the abdomen which originates in many folk traditions. As the core and center of our being, the gut is believed to be the root of our health both physiologically and emotionally. Working slowly from the superficial layer of muscles towards the deeper structure of the internal organs this technique promotes deep emotional healing and release of energetic blockages, improving circulation of blood and foster healthy digestion.
