Body-Mind Centering Sessions

Take care of yourself.

Bodywork Sessions can address and relieve the impact of injury, trauma, stress, tension, neck and back discomfort, scars and post-surgical trauma, physical injuries (recent or chronic), headaches, migraines, autoimmune health, hormonal imbalance, depression, anxiety. Sessions also can enhance general well-being and invite bliss.

Body-Mind Centering (BMC) focuses on the systems of the body: organs, muscles, bones, fluids, etc. and developmental movement. It is primarily light and gentle touch. Sessions may include movement explorations, awareness of internal movement, embodiment of internal structures and processes, looking at anatomical models or at pictures in anatomy books.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) focuses on the craniosacral fluid rhythm, the bones of the skull and spine, and related fascia. Craniosacral fluid is the fluid of the nervous system. Sessions include listening to the rhythm, inviting the rhythm to a still point, and supporting your body to reorganize.

Private sessions in Body-Mind Centering® and/or CranioSacral Therapy are held in Salem. They are about fifty minutes long. Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes.

Why Somatic Bodywork? Your body is given a new choice. It takes that choice; something shifts.

A Hundred Ways: Creative Approaches to Living in a Body is an approach to movement repatterning and awareness that offers many possibilities for exploration, healing and ease. There is no one way; there are 100 ways. I bring deep listening skills to support the wisdom of your body to make a new choice.
