Integrative bodywork for grief & transition
Emotional and mental challenges often manifest in physical pain and illness. Body centered therapies such as massage and craniosacral work activate the parasympathetic nervous system, quieting the fight-or-flight responses. Studies have shown that bodywork decreases cortisol and increases serotonin and dopamine. Imbalances in these hormones can be caused by stress, trauma, grief, loss, illness and injury.
Safe, gentle touch is profoundly helpful for helping people get through times of grief and transition.
