We offer transformative retreats, workshops, and individual sessions to help people like you to recognize, release, and reorganize

Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy and myofascial release are forms of body work that address the body as a whole. The mind is in every cell of the body, not just the brain. Regular sessions can improve mental well being

The short answer is yes! It isn't a quick fix, but massage helps the body to drop into the parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest), as well as release hormones such as oxytocin. There are also specific modalities such as Craniosacral Therapy as well as massage practitioners that specialize in working with trauma, ptsd and emotional release. Massage helps with aches and pain as well as general relaxation, which are both good for mental health.
