Body-Mind Centering (BMC)

Body-Mind Centering (BMC) is based upon the inter-relationship between the deep, internal experience of the body, explored through the direct experience of ones body systems, tissues, cells, and the developmental movement patterns. It is a study of the balance between one’s inner awareness and one’s movement in the outside world.

The body systems make up our physical organism, which is a complex organization of many systems (the bones, muscles, organs, glands, and nerves, etc.) each of which offers a different quality to one’s movement and state-of-mind. The therapist facilitates contacting the different body systems through touch, movement, sound and breath.

The developmental movement patterns are based upon the sensory-motor development of the human infant. The first two years of life are crucial in the development of the child. Our current ease in relationships, movement and perception is determined primarily by the sequence of movement and interactive patterns that take place during the first two years of life. This foundation of human movement is a critical relational sequence from the moment of conception, through birth, pushing–up, creeping, and crawling and on to walking, skipping and jumping. Developmental Movement re-patterning is a revisiting and integration, for adults, of the critical sequence of the baby’s early developmental movement patterns. The understanding of the developmental process helps the therapist work successfully with people from infancy through the senior years.

Injury Prevention and Retraining

Injury Prevention and Retraining sessions utilize specific exercises and relevant kinesiological principles, where the therapist creates a retraining program for your particular injury. Learning and applying these principles allows people to heal their injury and move with greater ease and awareness.

BMC Infant Developmental Movement Education

BMC Infant Developmental Movement Education facilitation can enhance your child’s, emotional, physical and intellectual abilities. Developmental Movement Education supports babies and parents with some basic practices. These practices help Baby's brain and body grow, and learn optimally in this first two years. While parenting for the most part comes naturally, there are practices that can be learned to support you and your baby's comfort. These practices aim to enhance you and your baby's relationship, and your baby's ability, with your support, to move and interact in the healthiest possible developmental sequence. Studies show that the sooner an infant receives help, the more easily change can be accomplish.

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy uses a light gentle touch to balance the CranioSacral system- the membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. This vital system extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth, which make up the cranium, down to the sacrum, or tailbone. The therapist monitors the rhythm of the CranioSacral system to release restriction in the problem areas, and relieve undue pressure on the brain and spinal cord.

Bodywork and Massage

Bodywork and Massage therapy sessions allow people to experience deep levels of relaxation and peacefulness. During a session people learn to listen and participate in the healing processes of their bodies.
