Nervous System Resilience Sessions

Aligning with your Body's Intelligence

Process oriented somatic attunement sessions to support you in:

  • Connecting with your body's innate healing capacities
  • Learning ways to shift from overwhelm, fatigue and inflammatory body states for replenishment (downshifting from go-go-go and coming back online after things are too much)
  • Developing the capacity to be with strong sensations and under-responsive areas of the body
  • Meeting undigested life experiences held in your body with care and compassion
  • Understanding your body's survival responses and wisdom in the face of chronic stress, pain, illness and isolation

Sessions are rooted in cultivating the capacity to sense, be with and follow one's body wisdom through cultivation of your "felt sense". This sensing (known as interoception) and how we relate with it has important connections to our well being and physical health. It's also is a key to healing trauma and disconnection. It is the ground of our embodiment.

This work does not take the place of trauma therapy or medical care. It can serves as a deeply supportive and transformative form of complementary care for self-growth, navigating complex health needs, and histories of trauma and neglect.

What are sessions like?
We typically begin with orienting to the present moment and touching base about your intentions for the session. We'll meet what unfolds by orienting to the body and what's arising in your awareness in doable pieces.

The tools of how we meet what arises are drawn from both traditional and leading edge nervous system and somatic trauma resolution approaches: Alchemical Alignment Bodywork for Trauma Resolution, Polyvagal Theory, Somatic Experiencing Principles, Systemic Constellation Principles, Traditional East Asian Medicine philosophy, and various traditional energy healing practices.

Sessions may include:

  • Somatic Witnessing and Attunement
  • Resiliency & Nervous System Education
  • Movement & Dynamic Stillness Practices
  • In-person: Slow, touch work to balance the nervous system and develop your somatic awareness.

For some patterns rooted in ancestral or soul histories, I may recommend a series of Pattern Healing Sessions during our work together.

These sessions may be for you if:

  • You want to better understand yourself and be in the driver's seat of your own wellbeing
  • You've been on a healing path for a while, have explored your family history and would like more support for your body in this process
  • You've had a challenging birth history, medical procedure or family legacy that still resonates within you
  • You have at least two other active supports in your life (trusted relationships, medical providers, psychotherapist, community, spiritual connection, connection to nature, etc.)
  • You are an empath and want more support around what is and what is not yours to carry
