Let's Write Your Healing Journey
Together is a Great Place to Be
I am Alisa and I believe that all of our bodies have stories to tell. There are good stories and bad and together we will find exactly the perfect blend of my work to help you feel heard, safe, and seen.
Why is my Body Carrying Pain ?
Trauma and Your Body
Trauma impacts the body and will put into a constant state of fight or flight or sympathetic dominance. It is like being in a war zone and not knowing when the next attack will come, hypervigilance, sleep is difficult, eating is hard, trust next to impossible. The world is skewed. The threat may be long gone, but our body doesn’t know the difference, it is our warehouse of memories and the impact can be global. Through my bodywork experience I have found that the physical body will mirror the emotional body and that will mirror the energetic body. If one is locked up and defensive they all generally are, and this is example of what trauma will do, and so the important thing in the work I do is establish safety in the room and in the working relationship. The next part is about balancing the Autonomic Nervous System’s response with a mixture of both Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki, both modalities stimulate the rest, digest and recover response or Parasympathetic Nervous System. Incorporate grounding techniques that are individualized and adapted for each client because meditation and grounding are difficult when triggers hit. My goal is to meet your body where it is, and if it is on the battlefield then it is to help them walk off and no they are no longer in a battle.
My Integrated Intuitive Bodywork
Together we Heal
My orientation to bodywork is integrative, individual, and intuitive. Using a mixture of therapeutic modalities; I tailor each session to meet your needs by incorporating massage, light-touch, grounding, meditation, and energetic therapies. You are in charge - dictating the pace, the modalities, and the time you need; I use my training, experience, and skills to facilitate your treatment. I only charge for my time, not by separate services. My goal is to be a guide, steadying hand, and voice of encouragement on the healing journey you chose to make.
