Breathwork influences the autonomic nervous system, promoting relaxation or alertness by modulating heart rate, blood pressure, and stress levels. Controlled breathwork can foster balance and calmness within the body and mind, as well as assist in releasing stuck energy & emotion.

Inner Parts Work

Inner parts work, including approaches like Internal Family Systems (IFS) and The Tamura Method, involves exploring and understanding different facets of one's psyche or internal "parts." These parts represent distinct aspects of an individual's personality, emotions, and experiences. Through therapeutic interventions, individuals can foster self-awareness, integrate these parts, and promote emotional healing and growth.


Sound Healing and Journeys

Sound healing utilizes the vibrational frequencies of sound to promote relaxation, balance, and well-being. It involves the use of singing bowls, gongs, and other instruments to create harmonious vibrations that resonate with the body. Sound healing journeys are immersive experiences where individuals engage in sessions or workshops incorporating various sound tools, allowing them to embark on a transformative and meditative exploration of their inner selves through the healing power of sound.


The Tamura Method

The Tamura Method helps individuals unravel the origins & impact of their core wounds. It fosters a nurturing connection between the Adult-self and the wounded Child-self, so that both aspects can be embraced & embodied synergistically.


Energetic Balancing

Energetic balancing is a holistic approach of promoting harmony and equilibrium in the body's energy systems. The aim is to identify and address imbalances in the body's energy flow, such as disruptions in the flow of chi or prana, to promote overall well-being. The goal is restoring balance and facilitating the body's innate ability to heal itself.


Myofascial Release (MFR) - John F Barne's Approach

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a manual therapy technique that focuses on releasing tension and restrictions in the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles, bones, and organs. Barnes' approach involves sustained pressure and stretching to facilitate the release of fascial restrictions, promoting improved flexibility, range of motion, and alleviation of pain. Addressing fascial restrictions can have positive effects on past trauma trapped in the tissue, as well as overall well-being by addressing the root causes of physical discomfort and dysfunction.


CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle alternative therapy that involves manipulating the craniosacral system, which encompasses the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. It employs subtle touch and manipulation techniques to identify and address imbalances in this system, aiming to enhance the body's natural healing abilities.


Somatic Awareness

Somatic mindfullness and coaching is a holistic approach that integrates the mind, body, and spirit. Through this practice, clients are guided to develop a deeper awareness of their physical sensations and emotions. This heightened awareness leads to improved self-regulation, emotional resilience, and a better understanding of the body's responses to life's challenges.
