for Virtual and In-person Somatic Care
SOMATIC EMBODIMENT COACHING
This modality is the foundation of my practice. It is also a cutting edge healing technology that many people are starting to wake up to and ask for. I am so glad, and am here to share my potent medicine in this way.
In Somatic Embodiment Coaching, You are invited to get to know your body (specifically your nervous system) in a whole new way and explore communicating with...truly LISTENING and feeling what is moving and happening beneath the surface. Beneath the story. Directly experiencing your Soma, a Greek word that means essentially your multilayered BODY. The information available in your body is so valuable it has the power to change your life, the way you see yourself and the world. Trauma is met fully in a space of loving presence as I gracefully and instinctively guide you into the most necessary places and spaces to reclaim your power, your sensations, your memories, your power!...so so very much is waiting to be reset, renewed, recovered and discovered.
Post Somatic Coaching people report feeling energized, very relaxed, deeply connected to their truth, and more naturally orienting themselves towards what's truly body mind and soul nourishing...and much more. Life changing stuff. You ready? For best results, several sessions will most likely be needed if not a longer period depending on your needs.
Massage Therapy and Integrative Bodywork has been around forever...in fact, it's one of the oldest forms of healing on our planet. I expertly support you in receiving a style of massage that will best suit your needs. My offerings are an intuitive blend of: Relaxation based Swedish and Deep Tissue. I have a list of wonderful add on's to enhance your experience including but not limited to: Gua Sha / Cupping / Reiki / Sound Healing / Mineral Foot Soaks and more.. I use organic products, hot and cold therapy, a delightfully comfortable table with lots of softness to sink into. My massage and bodywork sessions are deeply healing to the body, mind, emotions, and soul. All layers of your being are incorporated and welcome to shift into balance and bliss. And yes, this modality can absolutely be adapted to Virtual if necessary (for this I would offer an ASMR Massage, look it up if you don't believe me ;)
RESTORATIVE TANTRA YOGA
Tantra means "to weave", Yoga means to "unite with". In my Restorative Tantra Yoga offering we focus a lot on breath awareness practices and allowing the body to open, let go, become flexible through conscious relaxation, and guided meditation. This more Yin, or Divine Feminine approach to Yoga (compared to Westernized Yoga which is more Yang, or active) is truer to the essence of what Yoga is really about, to unite with the Self on all levels, integrate (or weave) together aspects of the self that may have been de-prioritized or discarded and allow for healing, peace, and connection to your body--which is a line into Source / God / Goddess / Higher Power. In a session with this focus you can expect to slow way down and be lead into postures and practices (both solo and with me) that are more floor-based, props will be utilized to hold you in place so that you are working less and feeling / being more. Some Philosophy is shared, but in an embodied style as we are working with the bodymind. Tantric practices more specific to your needs are brought forth once a basic practice has been established and I have had time to fully assess all the aspects neccessary to support you.
CUDDLE / LOVING CONTACT THERAPY
Ever just need to be held with no agenda other than to relax into stillness with another person who feels safe? Ya, we all do. That's what Cuddle Therapy is all about and, as a pioneer of this "new" modality, I can tell you the amount of healing and stress reduction within the experience of Cuddle Therapy is limitless. I am beginning to also call it Loving Contact Therapy, because that makes it even less stigmatized. A lot of people associate "cuddling" with some form of sexual connection. It can be, but not in a therapeutic session like this. That's what makes it a whole other experience. You are oriented into the moment in a loving, truly safe and nurturing way through supportive Consent based communication.
Together we create safety by learning how to set comfort based boundaries and practice asking for what we want to experience in a space of mutual enjoyment and platonic care. I know many different cuddle postures and positions ranging from standing, sitting, or getting more horizontal together to support profound relaxation, ease, and oxytocin release (the bonding hormone we produce inside that floods us with feeling good) . In these sessions, you can expect to go very slowly and organically w/ me. Nothing is ever rushed. Welcome to a new way to receive touch.
