I’m offering a Summer Special for new and returning clients. Come on down for three transformative sessions of: Somatic Bodywork and Coaching, Mundo Method hands-on headache treatment, or body-mind headache prevention training. I work in-person on New York City’s Upper East Side, and by Skype, FaceTime, and phone.

We get busy. We get busy and forget to breathe, to pay attention to life. That we’re right here, right now. We lose connection. Maybe we never had it. But we want it, yearn for it. You, me, we, people, life.
Transformative work can bring you back into your body, put you in touch with your cells, with yourself on the cellular level. You can breathe, relax, relieve pain, tension, and stuck places. Find the spaces you can’t feel into, that are numb, tight. You’re suddenly aware of qualities you’ve embodied—a wooden board, a bungee cord.
Bring your awareness into your body. Feel yourself breathe. In the moment. Settle into your Self and feel gravity hold you, right where you are. Feel. You’re alive. Breathe. Let it go.
Let go of the grip of now of then of centuries past. You were gripped by what you feared and tightened against, or learned to please, squeeze, or run away, or stay paralyzed, frozen, tucked in, tucked away. It was reaction, safety, protection, wanting affection.
Let those toxic layers get cried away, yelled out, coughed up, shaken out, drawn away, melted down. New skin, new shape, new ground, purpose, meaning. Ease in.
It can be refreshing, soothing, plumb the depths, release the pain. You’re the explorer. You and your body carve the path. Keep breathing. It all unfolds as you grow.

I was one of forty practitioners who each gave four free bodywork sessions at “Spa Day for Women with Breast or Ovarian Cancer” at the JCC in Manhattan on June 23, 2013. What a beautiful feeling to help women, who are going through so much, relax into their own skin. They were so grateful, shedding their burden, expressed through softening, opening, tears of relief.
Eighty women participated in the half-day program, which also included meditation, movement, and a delicious healthy lunch. Kudos to the organizers, co-sponsors, and Aviva Geismar, who coordinated the massage therapists and invited me, and Pamela Miles, who coordinated the Reiki practitioners.
