From Tension to Awakening

What creates tension in the body and mind and how do we create more wholeness?
As a result of physical or emotional pain, the nervous system responds with survival patterns of neural tension to help us not feel something painful, separating those pieces from the whole. Defensive postures help us wall off the wounded parts so that we can favor parts that feel better over parts that don’t feel safe. With bodywork end energy work we are opening up communication of those parts that were once separated in the body and mind so that they can be digested and reintegrated in a safe way, back into the whole. By bringing attention and care to the separated, unsafe parts and no longer pushing what is uncomfortable away, the parts that hurt immediately start to feel safe again and reintegrate into the whole. This results in a feeling of connection, a fuller embrace of all that we are, and a deeper more fulfilling relationship with being human. IMG_6044
