While I most often recommend the Hellerwork Series because it gets to the root cause of many issues, I also do individual sessions with clients to address specific issues. Whatever your needs are, we can design a treatment for specific concerns. Some of the conditions I help my clients with include:
Below is a brief description of the work I do with clients. I integrate some or all of these techniques as it is appropriate in each session. When you come in we'll strategize how to work together in your first session.
HELLERWORK STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION
After thorough postural analysis, chronically restricted tissue is lengthened and dysfunctional movement patterns are corrected through gentle, deep restructuring of your body’s supportive structures. Typically Hellerwork is done in a series of 11 sessions, easily broken up into stages and customized to your specific postural restrictions. Each session includes bodywork to realign your connective tissue and coaching in a complete system of movement exercises and awareness tools developed to help you maintain the positive physical changes that come from the bodywork. In each session the connective tissue in your body will be reorganized to more fully support you with balance and grace. Throughout your transformational process, attitudes and perceptions that contribute to stress and pain begin to surface, as you discover new resources in your body to change those deep-set patterns, often for a lifetime.
Similar to the way Hellerwork balances and aligns the musculoskeletal system (muscles, membranes, fascia and bones), visceral manipulation gently addresses the interrelationship of function and structure, but at a deeper level in the body: between the internal organs (heart, lungs, digestive organs, brain, nerves, and spinal chord), and with the musculoskeletal system. When the body experiences stress or strain, the supportive tissues of the organs often tighten up protectively. Traumatic impact can also affect the organs and surrounding tissue as forces move through the body and this gentle work helps to release the deepest restrictions. In my experience this work is most effective in combination with, or after several structural integration sessions.
CRANIAL SACRAL THERAPY
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive form of bodywork that is able to directly influence the nervous system, brain and spinal chord. The technique is used to find and release areas of restriction, transform old holding patterns, and stimulate a relaxation response at the deepest levels of experience. Shifts can be both subtle and profound.
Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a short-term naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of trauma, developed by Dr. Peter Levine. SE employs the awareness of body sensation to help people “renegotiate” and heal their traumas rather than relive them. With appropriate guidance with the body’s instinctive “felt sense”, individuals are able to access their own built-in immunity to trauma, allowing highly aroused survival energies to be safely and gradually discharged. When these energies are discharged, people frequently experience a dramatic reduction or disappearance of their traumatic symptoms.
SourcePoint Therapy ® is a simple non-invasive energetic approach to healing intended to support and enhance whatever modality you are receiving as a client.
SourcePoint Therapy® works with points in the human energy field that connect the physical body directly to the blueprint of health: the information of order, balance, harmony and flow inherent in the body and in the universal energy of Source. It helps integrate the other work we do in sessions to integrate.
