Archs of Embodied Change

Although trauma has come into trending streams— it deserves the attention it is getting, and there is a reason why it is at the forefront. No more shoving our shadows under the rug. Time to clear the dust and residue from generations. And, small tensions are just as important as the big ones!

Four years ago, stepping into trauma aware facilitation brought a pivotal shift in my approach. It revealed how hyper sensitive we can be; something as innocent as a purple towel can be triggering for someone else. However, these tensions and triggers are not to be ignored or shamed. They are akin to doorways, it offers insight into what calls for reorganising, and composting; so it can transform into life force.

I believe that my role here is to enliven the healer within you. Every body I come into contact with through bodywork therapy, is about accessing a deeper healing resource that your body inherently already has. However, it may need another nervous system to help access those resources.

We are relational beings. Deeper healing occurs in relationship, when two nervous systems meet — particularly, when we meet a safe, grounded, and attuned relationship. That safety invites the unwinding, the unlearning, and the gentle release.

Sometimes, learning that safety is most appropriate in a neutral, therapeutic setting; where this is no fear of loosing a friendship, or fear of gossip, or reputation threat. In this zone is a contained space that invites and allows for more free and uncensored expression.

You may have heard the term ‘the body does not lie’. Although talk therapy has its significant place, the body is where the stories, symbols, and residual tensions unravel.

Sometimes, talking is not enough, and even dancing is not enough. You can go to as many sound baths, dance workshops, even have a deep spiritual practice, travel, spa days galore, read as many books, and go to regular parties and dance the night away. All of which are great resources! However, if you feel that underneath, there is still something there – then, I recommend finding a reliable and supportive therapist or therapeutic modality; even if it goes beyond my offerings. I’d be glad to recommend you to someone that resonates with you best.

If you feel called to be held through the work of bodywork therapy, reach out for a conversation, or if you’re ready – go ahead come for an Initial Session to have a felt experience.

This work is friendly to LGBTQ+, and marginalised folks.
If financial assistance is needed, reach out, and we can work it through.

I’m rooting for you, for us. Blessed be.

A path to reconnect with your body.

A journey towards regulating your nervous system, fostering better body awareness, and recovery.

At its core, this therapy employs gentle techniques rooted in Craniosacral dynamics, somatic awareness, and trauma sensitive practices. It aims to release compounded tension, and restore balance. 

This therapy can support re-balancing for chronic pain, fatigue, burn-out, anxiety, and, more; alongside a deeper understanding of one’s own inner embodied wisdom.
