The Mundo Method is a subtle touch and focused concentration protocol that works with the actual felt sensations of a headache or migraine. It’s a dynamic process whereby each change determines the next move. It’s literally “bio” “feedback” with no machine required! Tension, migraine, and combination headaches have different characteristics and require different approaches. One technique eases held fascia, another “stills” migraine pulsations, and another releases stuck pain to help the migraine “bloom” in order to work with and move it out.

The Mundo Method is unique in several ways:

  • It works with locating, palpating, identifying, and manipulating specific felt sensations.
  • You have to be it to see it. When you’re centered and your touch is soft, your hands are more sensitive, assured, and effective, and the client can relax.
  • Because stress, worry, and fear can keep a headache in place, clients are gently coached in using their breathing, awareness, and posture during treatment.
  • For the most part, the therapy is delivered with the client seated and practitioner standing.

Mundo Method Professional Hands-on-Headache Training is next month, 3/19-3/22/15. I hope you’ll join me!

“My son told me he liked your hands-on method, because it worked right away and didn’t hurt. I’m almost in tears and very grateful for the class and so is my son.”
— Amy Pitts, LMT, Mineral Essence Day Spa, Newport, TN

“When I got home on the evening of our session, I was amazed at the reflection in the mirror as I was taking off my makeup: I swore you had given me some sort of healing-hands botox—my skin looked softer and those nasty forehead lines seemed not as deep. Wow! Amazing! You should market yourself as the natural botox . . . my forehead still looks smoother. Seriously. 🙂 Thank you for all the helpful hints; I’m really trying to be conscious of my posture and breathing.”

Childhood Abuse Affects Genes and Health into Adulthood

Childhood abuse and trauma produce hormonal & gene changes that affect children into adulthood. The linked article is a wonderfully clear explanation about some current research being conducted on stress hormones. http://to.pbs.org/1s7ubUo 
Many of my clients (both somatic coaching and headache) have experienced trauma and abuse, and I find that it underlies their bodily tension, mood, and mindset about their health, healing, and lives in general. I work with them to unwind their trauma through Somatic Bodywork and Coaching and specialized Somatic Trauma training that honors their experience and helps them build the boundaries, voice, and safety that were violated.

Summer Sessions Special

I work in-person on New York City’s Upper East Side, and by Skype, FaceTime, and phone.

We Get Busy

by Jan Mundo

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.

JCC’s Spa Day for Women with Cancer

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.

Co-sponsored by The Comprehensive Breast Center at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospitals, The JCC in Manhattan, The Institute for the Advancement of Complementary Therapies (IACT), SHARE, Sharsheret, Young Survival Coalition & Movin’On Aerobics.
