Most of our life revolves around other people—our family, our friends, our children, our relationships. We are constantly going and going and are often not able to then take care of ourselves the way we have wished we could. We have a hard time saying no to people and yet we are exhausted because we don't spend enough time on ourselves. And we often lack the confidence to ask for help, whether because we feel we aren't able to say how we feel, we worry that we will not be supported, or we don't want to become a burden on other people in our time of need.
As we stay in our heads, swirling through all the day to day experiences in our lives and the more challenging interactions we are faced with, the energy from all of these experiences becomes stored in our bodies. And these stored energies often correspond to physical pain. It can be something as simple as a stressful day at work and then your neck feels tight to having an argument with your spouse which may settle in your stomach. And while our brains will work through the situation our bodies don't often catch up and so the physical manifestation of the emotional experience stays there.
In healing massage with me I connect you to feeling inside your body and allow you to explore what the original experience was that caused your current pain. Whether a time when you were younger and had a challenging interaction with a parent to difficulty in your marriage and not feeling heard by your spouse to deep traumatic experiences that you've either forgotten or have worked through on the physiological level—all our experiences also show up in our physical bodies.
Just as often, injuries that that were purely physical—a fall, a broken bone, a pulled muscle—will find their way into those parts of our bodies that are vulnerable because of past emotional traumas that have compromised our bodies. And so, quite often, working on an injury will bring up memories that do not necessary correlate with the current physical pain.
During our sessions together I invite you to explore what is coming up for you as I release the muscles memory in your body. I will also tell you what it is I am receiving as I am releasing your muscle. I may ask you questions about your past or may offer insights that come from your body or from your guides. I welcome you to share what makes you comfortable during these sessions. This is a collaboration between you and myself. The energy is in you, the healing comes from you. I am the conduit that allows the pain to pass.
This healing work is specifically for people who want a reset, who don't want to continue old patterns, who want to be free of pain that cannot be released by more traditional massage and body work, and for those that want to regain a sense of control in their lives.
