What to expect.

As a trauma-informed clinician, I prioritize viewing individuals as people first and bodies second. In my practice, I adhere to the belief that emotions are stored in the body.

 

If you experience tightness or discomfort in your body, it may serve as an external expression of your internal emotional state. Consequently, therapy may be recommended in conjunction with this approach. The overarching objective of this therapeutic work is to facilitate the reconnection of individuals to their bodies, fostering a deeper connection with oneself.

 

Recognizing that our bodies play a crucial role in decision-making, this process aims to engage our entire selves rather than relying solely on the brain for decision-making.

Non-Touch Options Available: If you prefer not to be touched during the session, that's completely fine! This doesn't have to be a hands-on appointment. Your comfort is a priority, and accommodations can be tailored to your preferences.

5. Warm-up Movements:
To prepare your body, we'll initiate with gentle warm-up exercises. This process enhances blood circulation, provides warmth to specific areas, and signals the central nervous system for upcoming stretching and movement.

6. Table Session:

Next, we'll move to the table to explore passive ranges of motion. During this phase, we'll engage in coordinated movement and breathing exercises together for the remainder of the session, with the total stretch time usually around 50 minutes.

7. Progressions:

In the initial sessions, the primary focus is on alleviating pain and reducing inflammation. As your progress continues, we'll integrate floor stretches and movements to help sustain and improve the overall range of motion in your body.

10. Parasympathetic Response:

Feeling tired or cold may signal the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system, a positive sign of progress. If fatigued, consider taking a nap. If cold, warm up with a hot shower or bath to stabilize your body's response.
