Athena is an Advanced Cranio/Sacral Therapist (Pediatrics and SER), Lymphatic Drainage Therapist, and plays the Tibetan Healing Bowls. She also works in the area of structural development using imagery and alignment to achieve flexibility, strength, and grace in movement patterning. She educates on the importance of detoxification and nutrition. She has 30 years of experience in Bodywork witnessing many miracles. Athena is proud to serve the people of Austin in a tranquil setting, just up the hill from Zilker Park - but patients sometimes drive over 300 miles to see her. She was trained by the Upledger Institute, and is a member of the Texas Health Freedom Coalition. She is available by appointment Monday through Friday, and occasionally on Saturday.
Athena’s own life's experience being diagnosed with an incurable condition where doctors held no hope for survival to a vibrant, healthy, connected human is a witness onto itself. Through her work the searching for healing and discovery of the incredible potency of transforming what seems to be hopeless into a miracle of life. This experience played a role in placing her feet on the path of being an advocate for the discovery of our POWER WITHIN.
Athena experienced a serious disease pattern as an adolescent which gave her insight into the miraculous way the body can be restored, as well as the lack of real healing methods of western medicine. Being somewhat pushed aside by the established medical system using dangerous synthetic drugs to keep the blood work 'normal, she chose, after learning of the extreme dangers of the long term use of medications, to seek something else. Intuitively she was being directed to look elsewhere, But where? In the early 1970's there was little to nothing out there offering an alternative direction. It was the discovery of an herb book Back to Eden, that put Athena on a path of alternative modalities. Passive, non aggressive techniques respect the body’s intelligence, giving the body needed nutrients, the body will always move toward its own balance. This balance is necessary for the structural, emotional, nutritional, and mental components bring the restoration into the whole body, not just a part. Function always follows structure. Grasping this concept, one can begin to understand the importance of being involved in the restoration process, as no one can 'fix' anyone without the participation of the one who suffers.
By proper support both structurally, (working with the subtle structures and fluids), mentally, emotionally, and nutritionally, restorative patterns can and will begin to occur. Transformation of dis-ease patterns from dysfunction to restoration is the incredible miracle of Life. The body is capable of healing itself with help from us by way of nutrition, subtle structural changes, clearing out emotional trauma caught in tissue memory, recognizing how profound our thoughts play a role in this process, and awakening the spirit to consciousness that all is connected.
When we ''get'' that our bodies are an environment, rather than a mechanical machine with separate parts, when we ''get'' that our essence is infinite, we can then grasp the true nature of being human.
