Do you experience
Physical aches and pains?
Are you seeking an embodied way of life or are you on a journey of self-exploration and discovery you wish to deepen?
This holistic approach could be for you. Biodynamic massage impacts all aspects of our being - physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. It was developed in the 1960's by Gerda Boyesen, a clinical psychologist and physiotherapist, interested in the effects of massage on people's mental health. It is recommended to experience at least 6 sessions to notice an impact on your way of being.
What sets this practice apart from other massage styles is attuned touch, through which the therapist meets each client where they are in the moment and in the context of their history. The touch is sensitive to physical and emotional states, it is trauma-sensitive, and can be experienced on skin or on clothes; no oil is used. The biodynamic approach treats each unique person with all their many layers, rather than as a body or a part thereof.
Another unique aspect of biodynamic massage is the stethoscope placed on the belly to tune into digestive system activity throughout the massage. As the gut digests food, so too it digests accumulated stress, toxins and unprocessed emotions through its complex nervous system which communicates directly with the brain. The body can complete previously unprocessed cycles at its chosen pace.
