Traumatic Incident Reduction

Massage and Shamanic Bodywork
We offer both relaxation massage and trauma specific shamanic sessions to support your healing and transformation. Many traumatic experiences leave one with a distorted body image, a sense of 'disembodiment.' or a disconnect between various parts of the body, or blocks in the flow of energy through the body. Often fear or aversion to touch can result from trauma. Many times and for many reasons, simply a lack of loving and nurturing touch can impact our well being and our ability to engage in relationships. Becoming vulnerable, in a space of the greatest safety, is tremendously healing and empowering.
Breath techniques are powerful ways to quickly change the body's physiology, relieving stress, calming the mind and body and clearing the biochemistry of stress and anxiety. Shamanic breathing techniques can help to release state dependent memory, unprocessed or unexpressed emotions, and help the body recover from maladaptive responses it may have habituated to avoid intrusive thoughts and feelings.
The use of crystal singing bowls can enhance the experience of a deeply relaxing meditation. We frequently offer this paired with transformational breath. We will offer assistance in developing and implementing your own daily meditation practices in ways you can sustain and support as a part of your life and lifestyle.
