The first session of Body/Mind Therapy usually runs a full 90 minutes. After that session length can be determined by need and/or finances.
As I grow and change, the work expands and deepens. Currently much of the focus is on inquiry, releasing from holding onto the stories that we tell ourselves and allowing for the truth of who were are to be seen. Our conditioning, patterns, behaviors, create chronic pain and on-going problems. Many of us have the same ailments month after month, year after year. I am no longer working from a model of “fix me”, but rather a co-creative partnership where we become more and more sane as reality is seen for what it is and what it is not. xo anita 2023
Many different techniques can be employed with some of the work being Neurofascial Release. Sometimes the work is done with the patient lying on the table fully clothed or standing next to the table for various releases. At other times we will sit comfortably facing one another talking. There will always be a full history taken, time for the actual hands on work (if needed), and time for questions, observations, and comments. There may be homework given in the form of simple exercises, stretches, and/or meditation practices. The touch for the hands on work is very light pressure and usually pain free. At times when a strain is releasing, one may feel a bit of pressure or a dull pain which subsides when the release is complete. There may also be emotions that are released. Memories may surface and talk therapy techniques can be employed. Nothing is out of the realm of possibility and everything that comes up in a session is treated with the utmost care and respect.
My main goal is to listen and to create a safe environment built on trust and honor.
Your story is uniquely yours. There is no cookie cutter formula for me to follow. You, your body, your story will be our guide. We will inquire and we will become present to what life has to offer. We will lean into discomfort and not bypass the pain, but rather learn together why it is arising and what it has to tell us.
I look forward to our journey and to your health on all levels.
