I believe each of us is the accumulation of our life experiences, in addition to, above and beyond our genetics. Our bodies reflect this totality of both our natures and our nurtures. Everything from accidents to education to adventures shows up somehow, somewhere in our bodies and beings - and especially in our emotional anatomy. Bodywork can touch so much more than your skin, muscles and bones - it can reach your spirit, psyche and soul if you want it to...if you let it. I believe it is one of the most direct avenues to healing we know.
