we have the innate ability to heal ourselves
My understanding of what true healing is has evolved over my 32 years in practice, and my passion to help people on their journey to maximize their individual potential has only grown stronger. I have always believed, that as human beings, we have the innate ability to heal ourselves. I believe it is our nature, and imperative to our health to connect physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually with each other, and the world around us.
The Whole Self Healing Approach
When we experience trauma, which we all do, it gets in the way of our ability to live in our world as the whole, integrated, connected beings we are meant to be.
Trauma is our body’s response when we do not feel physically, mentally, or emotionally capable of any experience we perceive as threatening or harmful.
Physical trauma is painful, and limits function, but the wounds of mental, and emotional trauma are less obvious. Both limit our ability to live to our fullest potential.
To maximize our healing potential, we must address not only the physical limitations of pain and injury, but integrate methods that optimize our mental, emotional, and spiritual well being.
integrating methods that optimize mental, emotional, and spiritual well being.
Given that our nervous system is the core of our being, it must be considered a critical component of care. That’s why Nervous System Resiliency Training, and Trauma Release Exercise (TRE) are foundational in my “whole-self healing” approach. I call it core work for your soul. These techniques utilize the body’s inherent wisdom to down-regulate the nervous system into a parasympathetic state, allowing you to be your best self and live your life to the fullest.
Core Work for Your Soul
This is powerful work, especially when integrated with more traditional physical therapy including hands-on manual interventions, and Pilates based core strength/movement patterning. Reduced pain and inflammation, improved sleep, decreased anxiety, improved concentration, and an overall sense of well being are just a few of the benefits you’ll feel.
Empowering my clients evolution to embody a feeling of connectedness, and whole-self healing is incredibly exciting, and fulfilling.
I trust in the universe and believe we are constantly offered opportunities to learn, grow, and heal ourselves if we are open.
What’s next for you?
My interest in the body, and healing began at the young age of 12, when I was volunteering in the PT department at a local nursing home. I pursued my degree in Physical Therapy, and after 4 long years in the corporate PT world, I leapt to started Bodywise Physical Therapy. Being on my own gave me the opportunity to follow my heart and my ethics to develop a unique, and ever evolving approach to helping clients heal pain, and trauma.
Throughout my career, I have eagerly pursued continuing education, constantly adding tools to my tool box to be able to better help my clients along their path to healing.
Early in my practice, I studied traditional physical medicine i.e. Pilates, Myofascial Release, Graston, and Kinesiotaping. I recognized that to really help someone on a deeper lasting level, I needed to evolve myself, and my practice to integrate the body, mind and spirit.
In 2008, as I began pursuing my own healing, I discovered Hakomi, and RCS, (Recreation of Self). This work helped me evolve personally and professionally, and inspired me to study somatic psychology with the M.E.T.A. Institute in Portland, OR. I am continually amazed by the effectiveness of applying these skills and principles in my life and work.
