Bodywork

 

The body remembers.  It's memory is not based solely in the mind, but is carried with us every day, with every breath and movement that we make.  The body holds our stories in our tissues.  Every cell, every organ, every structure, every fluid that courses through us tells the story of our being and the lives we have lived up to the present moment.  The body wants to tell it's story.  Your story.  To you.  

The body speaks.  Through movement.  Through rhythm.  Through touch.  The body as the keeper of stories holds patterns, ways of thinking, being, and moving.  The body has wisdom, intelligence and knowing.  Tuning into this wisdom, we remember the language of our physical form and can listen to the stories our bodies want to tell about their experience of the world through us.  We begin to understand the process through which our bodies seek to balance and align.

Giving your body permission to speak - to acknowledge stories disguised as tension, energetic blocks disguised as knots; and injuries, hurts and fears disguised as pain and posturing - allows for you and your many levels of being - to process your stories and integrate them into who you are.  Right now, in the present moment.  This integration changes our relationship to our stories, to our lives and to ourselves and facilitates the process of internal alignment that leads to a deep awareness of who we are, what we need and the new stories we would like to tell, the memories we want our bodies to hold. 

This is empowerment.  This is healing.

Bodywork at Elements + Alchemy is a journey of translation - of listening intently and compassionately, with reverence and respect for the stories our bodies wish to tell.  It is a journey through the boundaries between the spiritual and the physical. And the means and language the body uses to remind us that we are not either or but exist beautifully and humanly as both.  Always connected.  

Bodywork sessions are 90 minutes long and are guided by your intention, both physically and spiritually.  We address any physical concerns of tension, pain and discomfort through therapeutic massage of the musculature and the connective tissues.  As we work through the physical, we create space for energy to move and channels for communication and healing to open.  It is a process and should be respected as such, with patience and understanding.  Even when the primary concern is solely physical.  Respecting your process, whatever it is - whatever it's intent, engenders trust and relaxation which is the most important element to healing through touch.

Outdoor Sessions:

As we are asked to distance to keep one another safe during this unprecedented time, healing touch has become more important than ever.  In order to provide much needed touch, healing and communion as the pandemic continues, I have moved all bodywork sessions outdoors to Cianfrani Park under a lovely canopy of trees and sky.  

Sessions are 60-75 minutes long and $100 and will continue as long as weather permits.  To schedule an appointment, please text or email elementsandalchemy@gmail.com.  To be notified of openings on warm winter days, please email me directly to put your name on the notification list.  

 

Remote Sessions:

Continuing to work with the intuitive energy of the body, remote sessions are guided self-massage sessions that allow you to tap into your body’s own innate wisdom and learn to tune in and work with it through your own hands.  Using our energetic connection and your feedback, I am able to help you map out the coordinates that will help open energy pathways, let go of tension and stress, while telling your body’s story and giving you techniques to use to help you communicate with and ease your own body through your own touch.

Remote sessions are 60+ minutes long and $50/hour and are conducted via Zoom, so you can experience this work from anywhere in the world.
