Your single constant companion.
Consistent. Unchanging. Everywhere.

1-2-1 Standing Massage and Awareness Guidance to Physical, Mental and Emotional Health
The Big G
Gravity is literally the only constant in your life. The single most continuous, ever-present and unchanging stimulus on you from cradle to grave.
Far from being a problem to overcome, gravity is actually responsible for the remarkable body you (should) inhabit.
Invest some time and consciousness exploring the only thing you will ever know that does not change. Explore your relationship with gravity!
Gravitate (explore gravity) to...
shift your perspective
re-activate your innate childlike curiosity
learn internal body awareness skills (Somatic Intelligence) which empower you to know how to move and how to be still
learn to use pain as an opportunity to understand your body and to fix it yourself
learn to know yourself
What to Expect
Expect to have your mind and body un-learned.
Expert physical touch/ guidance (Dao-Yin) and verbal guidance.
Ability to invoke parasympathetic function improving your blood flow, breathing and state of mind.
Emphasis on tendon, fascia & nerve health.
Expect to have fun. Seriously!
We will deconstruct deliberately and deceptively simple movements. Walking, standing, sitting... (Upper body too.)
Together with 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
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.
