About my practice
By combining two time-tested and effective modalities, cranio-sacral therapy and chiropractic care, our sessions help remove blocks to your body's innate intelligence, the source of your vitality and health. Everything begins to flow and respond as it was meant to. In the process, emotional and mental patterns often arise. We work together to clear these patterns until they no longer have charge. We feel the natural experience of connection and soft, open emotions. Our ability to discern what is best manifests as in connection with reliable intuition. The clarity of mind and abundant energy that is our birthright shines. We move more and more toward the reality of wholeness.
All living, healthy tissues "breathe" with the motion of life. Using gentle contacts on the scarum, cranium and elsewhere on the body, the cranio-sacral practitioner supports the return of breath and fluid movement to places that have been cast out, walled off or isolated. Areas of tension in the body are revealed, released and reintegrated. Before these areas were a drain to the system, now their trapped energy is available to you. The physiological functioning of all tissues in the body improves and they breathe with the motion of life.
The body functions best when its structure is strong, balanced and mobile. Like tuning a fine instrument, the chiropractic adjustment insures that the tissues of your body are neither too tense or too slack, bringing your structure into balance. This creates the best conditions for the unobstructed flow of your Innate Intelligence which is the foundation of health and vitality. Your entire system functions better. The free expression of your Innate Intelligence, which looks after the body night and day nurtures optimum health, growth and happiness.
Our bodies are engineered to respond to stress effectively. We experience heightened emotions in response to real danger. The body responds in a host of ways that are also pumped up to respond to the danger. Somatic memories of trauma and and unresolved stress cause us to perceive and imagine danger when in reality no danger exists. The body responds to this idea of danger in the same way. The fight or flight response is continually activated, exhausting and depleting all the body systems. With skill, presence and compassion I assist you in releasing these stored somatic impressions as they arise. The body resets itself to it's natural state of rest and relaxation.
The mind dreams twenty-four hours a day and most of the content is linear, fear-based and obsessed with the past and the future. These conditioned thoughts create our reality and keep us from being present to ourselves and to life. We can see through these errors, and each time we do we know that we will have more opportunities to live in a way that is connected, loving and present to the abundance that exists always. We slowly re-pattern messages of separation, shame, guilt and self-loathing. We create the life we were meant to live.
Our life is shaped by our mind,
for we become what we think. Buddha
