This unique form of bodywork utilizes concepts of mindfulness, holism, and embodiment to allow the client to reconnect with a deeper sense of themselves. Incorporating breathe, movement, physical sensation, sound, verbal interaction, and long smooth strokes allows the client to become more aware of their sensations, breathe, and energy.
