1-on-1 Somatic-Emotional Release Session
50 minutes. In person, clothed table sessions. $150
If you're struggling to make healthy changes that only you can make in regard to life challenges facing you—whether from stress, relationships, work, life purpose or health (it's all connected)— we'll follow the emotional feeling of it, touch it, and talk about it together in order awaken your inner capacity to heal and adapt. Emotional release work is done lying down in a deep state of relaxation. Sessions start with breathing exercises and guided meditation to de-excite the nervous system, combined with therapeutic touch designed to release tension from the musculoskeletal and fascial network. Sometimes the healing process is a subtle rebalance of a particular part of you that is stressed and needs attention, nurturance and reintegration in order to come back to balance. Sometimes the healing process is a healing crisis, where transformation is dramatic and systemic within your whole person.
Somatic-emotional release work is this journey of personal adjustment and transformation in which we integrate our parts and restore wholeness. Because body memories and emotions are central to the work, it feels relaxing, restorative and liberating compared to sitting in a chair talking—the posture of conventional talk therapy that tends to keep us in our cognitive mind on a verbal plane talking about our emotions, but ultimately disconnected from the somatic experience of them. Our goal together is to find the deeper point of pain and discomfort in your becoming, touch it, look it in the face, talk about it, and release it—not just mentally, but also somatically and emotionally. The result is a bodymindset reboot that feels restorative and healing.
Personalized Self-Care Plan
In person or by email and phone. $400
Creating a personalized self-care plan is done in two 50-minute sessions (in person or by phone) over the course of 2 weeks, with some emails in between. We start with an assessment of your family history of chronic illnesses, and then do an assessment of your self-care skills—identifying thought patterns, emotional postures and habitual behaviors you have toward health and wellbeing that increase your risk of chronic illness and mental and emotional distress. The assessments allow us to identify somatic-emotional-thought patterns—or what I call bodymindsets—that increase your risk of chronic illness and unhappiness. Once we identify what they are, we target them for adaptive change, set an intention to heal, and create visualizations to guide you to better health and wellbeing. The self-care plan ends with an action plan for strategic changes. The end result is that you'll feel more empowered to make the healthy changes you know in your heart you need to make for lifelong health and happiness.
