The issue lingers in the tissue.
In my practice, I use bodywork as an adjunct to counselling. Emotions are unconscious memories, and as such they are embedded in subtle structures of the body. In other words, the body speaks even if the mind doesn’t. No matter how much we’ve dealt with through talk-therapy and counselling, if we have not approached the body, through mindful, skillful touch and movement, we’ve missed the intelligence of the cells. Hence, the cells hold the epigenetic link to our ancestors.
To find more of how the stress affects our cells and immunity, I suggest the research of Canadian endocrinologist, Hans Selye.
Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
I am trained in Level 1 Biodynamic CST with Todd Jackson, Portland, Oregon.
Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy ( CST) is a form of a body treatment where the client remains fully clothed on a massage table. Biodynamic CST attends to the quantum energy present in our bodies from conception until 3 days after death.
There is no force used in the treatment as as a therapist, I am meeting and attending to the motion present within this quantum energy referred to as the fluid body. The unerring potency of the life force, in Biodynamic field called Breath of Life, similar to what in Yoga is known as Prana, allows the communion of cells to synchronize the layers and balance the body systems, particularly the Nervous System, where the stress and trauma impact is initially being impressed.
This synergy (Greek συνεργία) that naturally occurs in the stillness of the Biodynamic practice, creates a necessary environment for repatterining and integration, of what DO A. T. Still refers to below as Health.

WORKING HOURS AND CANCELLATION POLICY
My working hours are Mon-Fri 9-5 p.m. I do not check my messages after these hours.
Please note that a minimum of 48 hrs notice, during my working week, is required in writing (via e-mail), for changing or cancellation appointment, otherwise the full amount will be charged.
The cause of missing an appointment is of no consequence. If you give me less than 48 hours notice, and I succeed in finding someone to take your appointment, your fee will be waived. This policy is not punitive; it is to cushion me from the vicissitudes of your life.
We are accustomed to the idea of IQ – measuring the intelligence of the brain. We are becoming more accustomed to EQ – the idea of emotional intelligence. What is needed is a map of the territory of KQ - kinaesthetic intelligence, the intelligence of the body in motion. ~ Thomas Myers
