Each session is tailored to you for your needs and to your aims for the session.

Remedial Massage and Myofascial Bodywork

Remedial Massage involves the use of varied pressure suited to each client to reach the deep tissue and muscle fibres with the intention of releasing physically held tension and energy from within the body, increasing the circulation of the blood and lymph, to increase the range of motion of an affected joint, and to assist in the rehydration and detoxification of the body tissue.

Myofascial Release techniques focus on the fascia that surround the bulk of the muscle and muscle fibres. These techniques are usually more slow and firm, with the intention of targeting the release and separation of the fascia from the muscle. It is common for the fascia within the body to become restricted and 'stuck down' to bone and other tissues both bio-mechanically and emotionally.

The release of the fascial tissue creates more space within the body, more flexibility and more freedom of movement.

Some of these techniques involve the client performing easy movements and/or stretches to assist in the release of the tissue adhesion and to benefit the overall effectiveness of the treatment.

Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy

Integrative Somatic (Body) Psychotherapy (drawing primarily from principles of Core Energetics and Bioenergetics) is a process that focuses on energy and consciousness to integrate and balance aspects of the human personality - on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. It involves a combination of talk-therapy with movement of the body to release emotional energy and encourage physical expression that deepens an individuals' contact with their own body and their own vitality. Opening up through these areas of blocked or held energy in the body opens the individual to a fuller experience of their emotional truth and inner authority. Core Energetics and Bioenergetics were developed by John Pierrakos and Alexander Lowen respectively, having both studied and collaborated together under Wilhelm Reich.

The body reveals many aspects of our personal history and can often show a theme of where we may struggle. An example of this is the differences where there are areas of overcharge in the body (holding an excess of energy) Vs undercharged (holding too little energy and vitality).

The short and long-term benefits of engaging in Somatic Psychotherapy can be an increase in authenticity, self-knowledge, groundedness, personal empowerment, honest communication (with self and others) and the experience of living with a deeper sense of embodiment and an open heart.

The process is both a body-centred transformational modality and for many individuals, a spiritual journey.

Psychosomatic Therapy

The term 'psychosomatic' refers to the relationship of the 'psyche' (the soul/mind/spirit) and the 'soma' (the physical body). Psychosomatic Therapy, founded by the late Hermann Müller, focuses on a clients' ability to connect with their own sense of self and self-alignment that is guided by the observation and study of the body's shape, posture, and the condition that it is currently in. Our physical body holds our history. Questions are asked of the client to encourage the engagement in self-analysis through the body, honouring life experiences and how their body has formed its current presentation. It is a process where a clients' curiosity, self-compassion, appropriate self-care and connection are key.

It is a modality that is well-coupled with remedial bodywork to assist in postural alignment, the release and relief of tension (mental, emotional and physical) and also provides a unique and individual experience for those who are curious about their bodymind communication on a deeper level.

Sessions can address clients' symptoms and life stressors, aiming to encourage a greater awareness through the body, acknowledge strengths and challenges in combination with the body's communication, release held (redundant/restrictive) psycho-emotional energy, allow for new perspectives and to assist in bringing about a greater overall focus, balance and stability to the mental, emotional and physical areas of the clients' body in a holistic way.

Consultations can include facial feature analysis and face-split analysis, body types and natural presentations of type, postural, gait and bodymind analysis, body split analysis (eg: upper/lower halves, right and left side), energy anatomy, breathing awareness and techniques, and the exploration of personal values and somatic alignment.

The Psychosomatic Therapy process is a valuable modality for growth, facilitating a greater level of personal awareness, providing valuable insights and offers an opportunity to view bodymind communication, and oneself, with a new understanding and appreciation.
