Somatic Transformation – Body-Centred Practice for Chronic Stress, Chronic Pain & Trauma.
Chronic stress and trauma cause these body systems to get stuck in overdrive, creating feelings of helplessness, anxiety, shame, depression, hypervigilance, chronic tension and chronic pain. The body is both where our stress response lives and where our nervous system calms itself.
Somatic Experiencing and Body-Mind Centering work with entrenched emotional and physical struggles through the vehicle of the body, and help give you the best chance to work through challenges at the deepest level and in the most profound way.
Relational Somatic Therapy offers support with:
childhood trauma and attachment issues
- relationships concerns and divorce
- anxiety, fear, panic attacks, hypervigilance
- depression, fatigue
feeling stuck in shame, low self-esteem
feeling easily triggered, exaggerated emotional responses
feeling numb, vague, spacy
ruminating, intrusive thoughts or memories
chronic pain, fibromyalgia
other chronic health concerns
protective bracing and tension
digestive issues, irritable bowel syndrome
Work with me towards cultivating body awareness & embodied well-being – in an integrative, body-focused, heart-centered, relational way – whether you’re in the Markham/Toronto area or want to work together online.
It’s my intention to build and support more conscious face-to-face community opportunities for those of us who want to be together, move and support each other towards the movement of life in each of us.
The first in a series of workshops this year is:
Body-Mind Centering Somatic Practice – Moving Rest – a Somatic Movement Workshop for those who want to unwind their habitual body patterns, rejuvenate their nervous system and feel radiantly alive.
Do you feel tired of the same old repetitive exercise? Are you at a time in your life for whatever reason, you feel you need to change the way you move your body?
Monday, February 12th, 2018 – 7:30pm to 9pm
6633 Hwy #7 – Suite #012 @ Ninth Line – Markham
Come back to your body – and build solid biological foundations so you can become your own medicine via smart within your body actions, not reflexive reactions.
Give yourself a new experience for your body, mind & heart. Deepen your experience of ’embodied presence’. Explore the smaller dance of our bodies through breath, movement, floor play, with doses of stretch and rest to balance your nervous system.
Please get in touch to register before the workshop.
It is not an error
that you have been born
a sensitive human being,
with a tender nervous system
and a heart that is sometimes
Your vulnerability is not a mistake,
but a portal into aliveness.
