This is a non-invasive clothed treatment that recognises that health is inherent in the body. Through this gentle touch and a listening approach it can be a subtle and profound healing form. The work assists the body in doing what it needs to do in its ongoing search for balance.

Benefits

This treatment can release muscular tension, improve circulation (blood and lymph) and nerve function, and help improve joint mobility. It works at a physical level, alongside a listening and nurturing touch, to meet you at an emotional level and help bring balance to your body and mind.

These sessions aim to attend to the cause of a particular issue rather than simply focusing in on a particular symptom.

"When Body, Mind, and Spirit are united in their instinctive wisdom one finds ones-self at home in every moment expressing ones true nature." – Mark Moti Zemelman

a subtle approach
My approach

I am qualified Somatic Movement Educator. My work is based on my experience of and continued study of somatic movement (in particular Body-mind Centering®) over the last four years. Body-mind Centering® is an integrated and embodied approach to movement, the body and consciousness. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, it is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles, utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind. Its uniqueness lies in the specificity with which each of the body systems can be personally embodied and integrated, the fundamental groundwork of developmental repatterning, and the utilization of a body-based language to describe movement and body-mind relationships.
