1-2-1 Vertical Massage and Awareness Guidance to Physical, Mental and Emotional Health
How is your relationship with Gravity?
Is there any influence on you more continuous, ever-present and unchanging?
Is there any clearer, more consistent mirror to examine your relationship with your physical self?
What solid foundation do you have to make sense of the ever changing world around you?
Do you see gravity as a problem to resist or as the fundamental force shaping the remarkable body you (should) inhabit?
Do you feel the ground beneath your feet?
How is your relationship with gravity?

What is Gravity Clinic?
1-2-1 Vertical Massage and Awareness Guidance for Physical, Mental and Emotional Health.
An active but relaxed exploration of the way that you relate with with gravity.
Bespoke movement, massage and perception shifts based on your current physical patterns/ physiology/ pains/ limitations.
Skills for you to feel, use and inhabit your body as one unit.
Inspiring curiosity in extending your consciousness out of your head and into your body.
Dao Yin massage whilst standing or sitting.
Verbal guidance to produce simple but profound shifts in perspective.
Deliberate conscious experience of the path gravity takes in your body as you move and stand.
What do you Want/ Need? These are the type of questions which may arise...
Do you want to be fixed? Or do you need to learn to fix yourself?
Do you want to be told what to believe? Or do you need to simply Know. For yourself. From direct personal experience?
Do you want to find answers? Or do you need to re-activate your natural childlike curiosity and find real questions?
Are you able to deeply relax? Physically? How about Mentally? Emotionally?
Do you want to [. ]? Or do you need a shift of perspective?
Do you want to be healed? Or do you need to meet yourself?
Einstein said: You cannot resolve a problem on the same level that it exists: Here we develop physical knowlege and patters which open which will open
I move therefore I am... Do you want to be healthy? What does that mean?
Want/Need a solid universal framework to understand all movement systems and make sense of all the marketing hype?
Want that framework to be so simple it teaches you itself.
And so fun and engrossing that you are addicted to finding out more about yourself?
Need a change of perspective rather than a new system or method.
Movement: We will deconstruct deliberately and deceptively simple movements. Walking, standing, sitting... More complex movement will build on this foundation.
Verbal: Bespoke guidance based on simple but profound shifts of perspective, this will allow us to challenge assumptions and patterns that have been with you since childhood or developed through trauma (physical and otherwise).
I will not tell you what is 'correct' or give you structure or dogma. I will not ask you to believe anything. Instead you will acquire body intelligence to approach the learning/ investigation for yourself and arrive at your own conclusions.
Standing Massage & Guidance
Do you like having to take it all on faith?
A mix of Standing Massage (Dao Yin), guided introspection and simple movement will help you consciously discover the vectors that connect and align your body powerfully and gracefully with gravity.
This will reveal and train your innate capacity to be relaxed, aware and effective whilst active and upright.
You will learn to stop fighting yourself and resisting life. First Physically. Then Mentally and Emotionally.
Don't believe. Feel. And know.
