At My Somatic Bodywork, we offer a somatic holistic (whole person) approach to traditional massage, energy work, and Somatic Experiencing to our clients bringing body awareness which facilitates and fosters healing.
Somatic (from the Greek) means 'of the body'— Greek root soma which means "the living body in its wholeness relating to the body, distinct from the mind, soul, or spirit. Mind and body have a reciprocal relationship - soma (body) affects psyche (mind) and vice versa."
We see the bodymind from this perspective.
"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens." Carl Jung
Somatic bodywork honors the holistic nature of each individuals' personal experience. It honors the innate wisdom of the bodymind and uses body awareness as an essential tool during bodywork sessions.

“…a significant reduction in cortisol (stress hormone) could be safely achieved through massage, with associated improvement in psychological well-being.” (Massage Advancer, 2013)
