My hands-on touch massage can help any person who is looking for a state of deep relaxation in order to relieve emotional and/or physical tension due to stress, exhaustion, pain, injury or long-term illness. Body-Mind Centering® is an integrative approach to movement, the body, and consciousness.
What does a Body-Mind Centering® session look like?
We'll start with a 5-10 minute talk about your specific needs and feelings. I will ask you some questions that will help to develop the session plan which is unique for each person. Using a massage table, you will lie either on your back or your belly, sometimes on your side.
The base of my work is to hold a frame of quietness in order to support a state of mindfulness, sustained by the different qualities of touch which encourage the deep breathing of body tissues.
My method focuses on accessing different layers of body systems in order to help you find a sense of comfort and a calm, energized presence.
This is a moment to reconnect deeply with your whole body and all of its healing potential. The openness of your mind informs and impacts the vitality of your body.

"The tendencies to go out and in are always balancing; when they are in equilibrium, you arrive at center."

A three- to five-session plan is generally a good format to address deeper psychophysical patterns, while one session is an excellent gift to yourself to feel relieved from immediate tension and stressful situations. For chronic illnesses, regular sessions over a longer period of time can benefit and support your immune system.
