In your own timing, process-oriented bodywork, such as Heart Centered Therapy, Somato-emotional Release and Unwinding, is used to gently encourage awareness and insight development. Mindful movement and meditation techniques are taught for cultivating inner peace. Craniosacral therapy and Myofascial Release techniques facilitate core integration.
