At the core of Restore bodywork and somatic sessions is sensitive touch, movement (both external and internal), breathwork, body-mind awareness, imagination, and visualizations. In this co-creative space, we will be keenly attuned to our sensing and feeling states, unlocking the potential for profound personal and bodily
transformation and understanding.
These activities serve not only to identify areas of blockages that then can be released, but also to stimulate new neural and nervous system connections to awaken the body’s wisdom so rapid transformations in physical and felt experience become possible. Restored calm, ease, and vitality are the goals of each session. Restore uses various manual therapy techniques such as visceral manipulation, cranial sacral palpation, trigger point holds, scar tissue massage, and fascial release. These practices allow us to connect with your body on many levels, targeting areas of tension and imbalance that may be hindering your energy flow and movement.
Photobiomodulation (light therapy) can be combined with these manual therapies to further affect the body on a cellular level, serving to amplify the increase in blood and fluid circulation by regenerating tissue and improving mitochondrial health. Movement and awareness exercises are offered in each session, designed to allow the client to extend and deepen the healing experience after the session ends, and enhance the client’s self-healing capacities.
As a trauma-informed practice, Restore aims to be a compassionate witness, engaging with the client with a profound respect for your physical, emotional and spiritual journey. It would be a deep honor to work with you! Restore also offers group somatic movement and body awareness classes, and somatically-oriented live action role plays.
