it's the body, stupiD!
Why you need Transformative Bodywork.
Sometimes in life, we get lost. Lost in problems with work, health, money, family or relationships, lost in pain, anger, insecurity, quiet depression or emptyness. How can we change this?
As Einstein said, you can't solve a problem on the level it arose. Without more energy, more willpower, and more aliveness, nothing will change! Energy, will, and aliveness, can't come to us when we are stuck in the mind. They are only available to us if we connect to our physical self, and start to feel ourselves with new intensity and joy.
Our Bodies Store Our "stuff"
From a young age, culture trains us to disconnect from our body, our authentic and innocent perception and expression. Because of all the things we encounter as we grow up - rules, expectations, restrictions, even violence and abuse - we learn more and more not to be ourselves. We become a socialized, domesticated version of who we really are. And we get so identified with this second self that we even forget, repress and deny our needs and true feelings - no problem, no, I'm ok, thank you very much!
That's not great - but the problem goes even deeper. We need a huge amount of energy to suppress our authentic expressions and aliveness - just imagine restraining a toddler or a young dog. We achieve this amazing feat by controlling and restricting our bodies, from the big muscles in the back, belly, hips and legs, to tiny muscles and ligaments in the skull and joints, to even more subtle efforts that reach into the tissue and the nervous system. And this becomes a habit... a habit that forms our character, and that we almost can't break anymore as we grow up! And you still wonder why you're not happy ;)
Free your Body... And the rest will follow
In Transformative Bodywork sessions you will have a profound, exciting new experience of yourself through feeling your body. I see where your energy is most blocked, and then work to free it. This includes using different kinds of touch, pain, and asking you to participate by breathing more deeply, or moving. This is why Transformative Bodywork sessions are no treatments. A treatment leaves you as the passive recipient of some form of manipulation on your body. Transformative Bodywork engages all of you, body, mind, and attention, in order to free you from that unauthentic stuff that you've accumulated and held in your body for decades. It has a deep effect on your overall sense of self, how you see and approach the world, your health, energy, confidence and lust for life.
Welcome to the beauty of being you!!
