Conscious Embodiment Movement Therapy

Deepen the Body-Mind Connection

It is hard to escape the stress that is typical of life in these challenging days.

We push and work hard. We strive and compete. We are busy, overwhelmed, and are under-appreciated. Sometimes we give up. Stress may hinder our ability to relax, to breathe well or even to gently exercise.

If you are living in survival mode, you may feel ungrounded, anxious, or depressed. Physically, long-term stress and an overactive mind can cause digestive issues, high blood pressure, tense muscles, and headaches etc. as well as the experience of being disconnected between body and mind.

Are you ready for change?

Access the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind

Conscious Embodiment accesses wisdom stored in the body through feeling and sensing. It supports us in acting in new ways. Feeling and sensing our body leads to new connections and new responses.

The process liberates the body from a lifetime of constraints and habitual tensions caused by adverse experiences, physical injuries, trauma, cultural and personal habits and more!

Using conscious embodiment/somatic movement tools, it is possible to reconnect your body to your mind. In this state, life flows easily, and you can:

  • Relieve emotional, energetic, and mental blockages
  • Gain insight into your internal states and external expressions
  • Get practical help for better walking, sitting, postural support and breathing.
  • Relieve physical pain, and limitations due to stress, aging and illness
  • Experience freedom from emotional exhaustion, anxiety, and despair
  • Find the courage to enjoy life on your terms
  • Live with peace and joy
  • I understand and have worked with chronic illnesses and conditions including fibromyalgia, auto-immune difficulties, long covid, chronic anxiety and sensitivities, Osteoporosis, Parkinson's, cancer and respiratory illness.

How Can We Approach Conscious Embodiment?

Conscious Embodiment, also known as Somatic Movement Therapy, uses gentle movements and relaxed visualization to focusing on the internal experience of movement and presence in the body. This opens access to the wisdom stored in your body.

Sometimes called “interoception”, conscious embodiment focuses on sensing yourself internally, using movement and rest to deepen the brain-body connection, and become attuned to your physical, emotional, and mental needs.

Conscious Embodiment gives your brain tools to reorganize itself. This changes how you move your muscles and perceive balance. It changes how you detect tiredness, hunger, or emotion. It helps you perceive difficulty differently and become more creative and grounded in solutions.

With these tools, the experience of living in your body becomes easier, and your thoughts and emotions are more manageable.

Acquiring this skill is not only healing, but helps you make better choices about your wellbeing long into the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

“Somatic Movement Therapy” also known as “Conscious Embodiment”, combined with yoga therapy, allows you to access wisdom stored in the body by freeing the body from stress, trauma, constraints, and habitual tensions. These tensions are often created by adverse experiences, physical injuries, trauma, illness, grief, cultural and personal habits, and even developmental stages that you may have skipped as a baby.

Somatic movement therapy involves making intentional, gentle movements while focusing on the internal experience of the movement. This process unifies your body and mind and attunes you to your physical, emotional, and mental needs.

It is a chance to relieve habitual and long-held blockages and constrictions, creating clarity and helping you make better choices about your well-being.

You will experience being alive, aware, and present in your body. A way to think of it is… Embodiment is to the body what meditation is to the mind.
