When the body is under a lot of pressure and stress, either physically or mentally, the sympathetic nervous system is chronically stimulated to combat stress. When the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is active, the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) takes a back seat. The PNS is the soothing and rejuvenating aspect of our nervous system that activated the body’s natural capacity to heal, replenish and repair. Body Therapy re-engages your ‘rest & digest’ PSN reminding your body how to find a calm state within and release stagnant energy and blockages in the form of physical, mental and emotional tension.
Body Therapy sessions are different for every person and every treatment. I work intuitively in the moment with a foundation of Thai Yoga Massage; a gentle acupressure and rhythmic rocking and rolling to physically release muscles and joints and stimulate blood flow. I work with you guide your attention into your body to reintegrate your awareness with blocked parts of your body.

How Body Therapy works.
Drawing on my training and studies in various eastern and western modalities and knowledge systems Body Therapy sessions are tailored to create a gentle and deeply peaceful connection with the body to promote parasympathetic generation of the body’s ability to heal.
Body Therapy fuses what I have learned from Traditional Thai Yoga Massage, Qigong, Yoga and Western anatomy, physiology and neuroscience.
