What I Do
Some kind of pain, often in the body, brings people to work with me. The suffering demands attention. The attention, mine and yours, can influence change. For twenty years, I’ve been supporting people to decrease pain, to come home to their bodies, with greater ease.
Sometimes, change requires things we can’t do ourselves. We need someone else’s wisdom or expertise. Here’s a list of hands-on-care I regularly offer in clinic. Change can also involve things only you can do. This could include learning the power of food, stress management, self-awareness practices or meditation, movement, exploring early trauma and tools to integrate that trauma.
When we tune in to our bodies, we learn about all our bodies: physical-emotional-spiritual. These bodies are not really separate at all. We can discover more relief and ease, in the physical body, when we see the relationships. As one patient in his late 50s offered, “I’ve been more aware of my body in the past 3 years working with you than I have…I think my entire life.”
Pain, grief, trauma and oppression influence our connection with our bodies. Our medical system often erodes our sense of choice and empowerment, our agency. Together, in the interest of your health and well-being, let’s do things differently.
You have the most intimate wisdom and are the sole authority of your own body. I will listen attentively to learn about your pain, your history with health and vitality, your heritage, your curiosity, and your willingness to tune in. Wherever you are, there we will begin.
