Somatic Bodywork

Experience the healing power of integrative treatment

Emotional or physical trauma and PTSD can have a huge effect on the human body. Dissociation is a by-product of trauma and, in this state, it is challenging for a person to feel connected and present with themselves as well as others. Somatic experiences have been shown to connect our minds with our bodies. Somatic therapy is a form of body-centered therapy that looks at the connection of mind and body and uses both talk therapy and physical therapies for holistic healing.

Testimonials:

“Robin is incredible. I feel like she knows exactly what to work on before I even tell her. It can be difficult for me to relax, but Robin makes me feel comfortable and safe. I always leave feeling refreshed and restored.” – Reiki Client  

“Several months ago, I was compelled -by stiffness, pain and numbness in the extremities- to initiate consultation with Robin, delving into a therapeutic area that I had for years intentionally avoided.  There was resistance, as the idea of bodywork has always brought dread; I don’t much care for touch and cannot feel large portions of my body.  Talk and other therapies had brought to awareness the fact that different parts of this “me” inhabit different regions of the body, but I knew very little about most of them and had no reliable internal maps for navigation.  While mind and heart have been well on the way to being sorted out, the body until recently was still an embarrassing junk heap of unrelated parts.  Working with Robin has helped me begin to develop a new and deeply personal language for the connectedness of touch therapy experiences, and I’m getting a notion of what is meant by ‘somatic awareness’.  Dormant parts of my body are becoming more conscious along with the tingling and stirring of my numb limbs.  Those old rigid beliefs about my physical limitations are beginning to drop by the wayside; don’t know what is possible in future but I am surely traveling more lightly.”   – Massage Client  

“Robin has been a great healer to work with. She has a calming presence and takes the time to listen to my needs before using multiple techniques to help relieve pain related to physical and emotional trauma stored within my body. Working with her, she has helped me reduce back pain and tension while helping me become more aware of how I hold my body and how to maintain it. I walk out of each session feeling calmer and more connected to myself and aware of my body. This bodywork has been essential for my healing. Thank you, Robin!” – Somatic Bodywork Client
