Protective Body Holding Patterns & The Power of Moving Towards.
Your body is talking, are you listening?
I am convinced that in meeting oneself openly, through increased awareness in my body, there is no greater freedom.
There are protective, somatic holding patterns in your body that you may not be aware of – affecting your feelings of flow and connection within yourself.
Some of these patterns are chronic – the tissues in the body have become rigid, in the shape of the holding pattern. As children, when we felt stressed – and we heard the angry voices of our parents, the unconscious, repeated reaction in our bodies may have become a static contraction in our muscles and fascia.
In-your-body patterns are automatically felt when specific stressful circumstances happen that remind us of painful events in our past – stress-filled situations including, conflicts, intimate relationships and more.
By choosing to move towards your holding patterns, you choose to meet life in a more intimate way. By anchoring yourself in the practice of “moving towards,” you may find greater ease in your life experience. It is the act of moving towards that can transform suffering into a new experience.
Cultivate Embodied Well-Being – In-Your-Body Wellness with Relational Somatic Therapy.
Working with Somatic Experiencing restores resilience to the body’s responses to stress and trauma, so you can respond to life’s challenges with increased energy, motivation, clarity.
Somatic Experiencing focuses on targeting the Autonomic Nervous System and its ability to regulate and restore itself to balance in order to allow each person to regain a normal level of functioning after experiencing a trauma. This is done by gently and safely guiding individuals to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.
Movement is Life. Somatic Movement is the art of connecting the mind with the body in order to listen to the stories our body has to tell, to free chronic holding patterns, and offer new possibilities to regain balance, freedom of movement, increased vitality and creativity, build resilience, and expand your capacity to meet life’s challenges.
During our work together, you will:
- Deepen your experience of embodiment and anchor in the wisdom of your body
- Understand the body’s intelligence to support healing and growth
- Move towards a feeling of expanded emotional tolerance & flowing energy in your body
- Increase your tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions
I look forward to being with you.
love Kim, xoxo
