Mental and Physical Connection:

Because one’s mental state and physical state are inseparable, tension in the mind gets locked in the muscles. Bodywork, yoga and mindfulness increase circulation and flexibility, decrease blood pressure, relieve chronic pain/tension, and reduce stress. Massage, yoga and mindfulness are excellent for reducing stress, preventing or managing injuries, improving posture, & enhancing energy. In this busy world we cannot underestimate the healing power of deep relaxation.

“While our coagulated thoughts create an internal tangling in which we feel bound, separate, and disconnected, our hearts and bellies know we are not.”
Only through empathic presence can we find our coherent mind and function from an integrated brain system. Bodywork offered with love, moves us out of our heads and into hearts. This cleansing process allows us to clear stored sensations and emotions, removing the layering that binds us, and gradually revealing the stillness within.
People who feel disconnected from their bodies, report:
  • Feeling out of touch with sensuality/sexuality
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Feeling generally stressed, confused, irritated or anxious
  • Being unclear about priorities or about how much time to commit to things
  • Over-consuming food, alcohol, internet, television or shopped for items
People who feel connected to their bodies, report:
  • Feeling grounded, at ease, clear headed
  • Being able to sleep more soundly
  • An enhanced awareness of their changing personal needs
  • Experiencing the quality of balance in body, mind and spirit
  • Feeling connected to their sexual and sensual selves

 

Integration and Stillness:

While the brain in our head can help us navigate city streets and balance our checkbooks, it cannot help us experience the present moment: we cannot reason ourselves into stillness. Luckily, science now shows us that we have other areas of brain activity- neurological pathways in our hearts and enteric nervous systems. While our coagulated thoughts create an internal tangling in which we feel bound, separate, and disconnected, our hearts and bellies know we are not.

Only through empathic presence can we find our coherent mind and function from an integrated brain system. Bodywork offered with love, moves us out of our heads and into hearts.. This cleansing process allows us to clear stored sensations and emotions, removing the layering that binds us, and gradually revealing the stillness within.
