WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BODYWORKER AND AN RMT?
For some info on my description of Bodywork, please head here.
Many RMT's are also trained in the same or similar manual therapy modalities that I am. To summarize the difference between my practice and Registered Massage Therapy, however, I can say that it is not within an RMT's scope of practice to also support your emotional or mental well being. That said, many RMT's come to my workshops to fill the gap they notice is missing when a client expresses emotions while receiving treatment. It is a known fact that trauma is stored in the body and acknowledging that trauma with manual therapies can stir things up. I am able to help support and process the experience of acknowledging said trauma.
WHAT IS TRAUMA?
Trauma is a change in the functioning of your body or your brain due to an overwhelm of acute or chronic physical or emotional stress.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST BODYWORK SESSION?
During your first Bodywork session, I will use a number of techniques including joint release and breathwork to determine just how much tension is stored in your body and exactly where it is stored. This will involve a general reorganization of the soft tissue, making room for the bones to float into alignment and movement to become available. To sum that up, you can expect a general 'whole body' treatment where both you and I get to know your habits of moving/not moving on a deeper level as we explore the potential for optimal wellness.
Note: Please arrive wearing what you might to a yoga class (loose or form fitting clothes that allow room for the range of motion of joints/limbs).
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST LIFE COACHING SESSION?
You can expect a 'Coaching Conversation'. This is where I inquire into where you are at, hold space for all things you might be frustrated/angry/sad/curious about and 'unpack' it all. We determine what your current habits/behaviours are, what the intention behind it all is, and give you the tools to choose behaviours that are authentic to who you genuinely are versus who you've been condidtioned to be.
