Wayne is a gifted and skilled practitioner in the art and science of healing. He uses many varied and effective approaches for dealing with pain, illness, and injuries. I am so very grateful to him for the excellent care and treatment I received from him after I broke my shoulder.
Wayne is one of the most well-educated bodyworkers in the D.C, area. If you’ve got a chronic or acute condition in your body, mind, or spirit, visit Wayne to find relief, even transformation. As important as his hands-on expertise are his embodied presence and listening skills. Make several appointments in a row, and then ask for maintenance visits. You will deeply benefit. Your instinctual body will know to trust him.

About me

Mr. Sickels has 36 years of professional experience in private practice, teaching, and ongoing study in the field of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork. He is a specialist in orthopedic assessment skills and the application of deep transverse friction massage for muscle, tendon or ligament injury. He has clinical experience working with mild, moderate and severe injuries, as well as pre & post surgical conditions, joint replacements and scar tissue formation. In addition, Wayne has 19 years of training and practice of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, and over 3000 hours of Advanced Training and Continuing Education covering a broad range of methods and conditions.

Bodywork for Trauma Resolution can be very effective to gently shift our physiological systems from more primitive fulcrums of the body’s security system < the unconscious Fight, Flight & Freeze responses > to more conscious, modulated self-regulation and functioning.

Before beginning his private practice, Wayne spent 8 years in the Ministry after completing two graduate degrees in Seminary. For 18 years he has also been studying with two Tibetan Buddhist meditation teachers, spending considerable time in silent retreat practice. His therapeutic work is thus deeply informed by an embodied understanding of the power of directly presencing our experience, and the use of mindfulness/awareness in shifting the landscape of our brains and bodies, a very potent resource when addressing a process of healing and recovery.

My Philosophy of Care

My work is intentionally oriented from the Health in you, and seeks to amplify those dynamics of health in relationship to whatever issues may be presenting. Mainstream healthcare in our day is almost entirely pathology oriented, focused on identifying ‘what’s wrong’. While I am very comfortable working with many pathologies and medical conditions, my aim is always to anchor your perspective in the living dynamics of Health, and hold what is ‘out of sorts’ in relationship to that.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Safety & Education

My Inspiration

While in the ministry, I experienced examples of people who, when they substantially worked though their grief from a major loss, experienced multiple physical and physiological conditions self-resolve. It became obvious that the body was equally a manifestation of their grief process, yet in all my training the body was entirely left out, as though it were insignificant or irrelevant. I knew that if I wanted to understand how we heal, I needed to understand the intelligence of the body!
