Beginning with recognizing the body as the vessel for our entire life experience, I assist you in accessing your innate wisdom and developing your own resources though movement, drawing, writing and dialogue . Sessions are client led and can take a variety of formats based on individual needs, as your unique body centered mythology, personal narrative and movement language emerges to accompany you through your processes of self discovery, challenge and healing. The approach to creativity can be called “high sensitivity/low skill”-No prior interest or training in the arts is needed. Less experience may serve you well. My career as a intermodal artist, somatic practitioner and student of Anna and Daria Halprin form the framework for my approach to this modality. Sessions offered in person or by video.
My signature style integrates flowing, Swedish, focused releasing trigger point work of Neuromuscular, light application connective tissue, and energetic qualities drawn from studies in Shiatsu, Polarity, and Craniosacral therapies coupled with my innate wisdom. “Deep tissue” -extra firm application of pressure- is not my usual focus, though can be successful when approached comfortably for both myself and my client. Any of the above techniques can take the lead in a session depending on client needs and expressed preference.
