I am a practitioner of Somatic Experiencing ® and Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy with a background in massage therapy. My passion and work at Integrated Body Solutions is to help those of you who are suffering from the fixed patterns of trauma, distress, anxiety and shut down come back more into your bodies and inhabit the entirety of your experience, uniting body and spirit. A central axis in my work is to help my clients find and align with their own dynamic logos, the intelligent design embedded in their unfolding process that is precisely personal to them. My work, through personally attuned skillful guidance and titrated renegotiation, will assist you towards the discovery of an embodiment that comes from the core of your spirit.
I like to impart in my clients the perspective, a deeper recognition that although all their unresolved past traumas are indeed triggers for their suffering, they are more than this alone. They are not just an anguish to resolve as quickly as possible and get beyond. They are not just carriers of residual suffering. They are a precise and personal gateway, that when compassionately welcomed, embraced and metabolized will ultimately help fortify them into greater actualization, will help unite spirit and body. The more we feel and recognize the resulting thrust of aliveness that comes from this shift, the more we will naturally transition from being ruled by the avoidance of pain to the desire to be real no matter the cost. It has been my observation that we are all somewhere on the continuum of getting this fully. There is very few of us who could not benefit from integrating this even further.
When those who have undergone cataclysmic adversity and come through the other side being all the stronger and more actualized saying, “if I could go back in time and erase all my sources of great suffering, I would not change a thing”, I believe they are speaking directly to the recognition of what power is to beholden with the wise perspective and use of anguish. Here lay a golden thread I find invaluable to weave into my work.
Not only can those with unresolved severe crippling trauma harness this wisdom, with the right support and timing, the very trauma complex itself can act as a powerful catalyst, supercharging the drive and work towards returning unity to body and spirit. The catalytic possibility that trauma can bring coincides with what is called post traumatic growth but it is not entirely the same thing. It can bring the dynamic energizer that ushers in the post traumatic growth.
