All human beings interact with the world in unique ways. The way our body functions is a reflection of our physical and psychological interaction with our environment. When we experience physical limitations, it is an indication of a disconnect or imbalance created by this psychosomatic interaction, inhibiting our potential and eventually leading to physical symptoms that impede our lives.
It is now understood that psychological stress impacts our physiological wellbeing (causing symptoms such as muscle tension, clenching, poor breathing patterns, limited mobility etc.). Not so widely known is the tendency for our body to create fixed physical patterns in response to a repeated stressor or trauma, which persists for years after the causal event itself. Physical causes such as surgery, specialised sports, as well as the more common complaint of pain from spending too many hours in front of the computer, as well as emotional triggers including childhood emotional stress, daily feelings of overwhelm, dislike, fear, withdrawal, defeat, etc., can lock certain muscular patterns in place while disabling others. They become our way of moving, feeling and knowing the world. This limitation on our physical selves in turn limits our physical and mental adaptation to present situations. Those disowned parts of our selves are no longer available to us, creating excess strain on our structure as we compromise as best as we may by using other muscular patterns. Although manual treatment can offer temporary relief and may be an important part of the process, without regaining the flexibility and variety of options in both movement and mind to respond to our life situations, symptoms tend to reoccur or remain.
Instead of breaking through this perpetual cycle using psychological/intellectual methods such as psychoanalysis, meditation and other mental stress reducing techniques* or physical treatments of the body alone, we approach these mutually influencing psychosomatic elements with the use of an integrative process, combining embodiment, bio-energy, Feldenkrais inspired movement, and massage techniques which brings awareness to your self limiting patterns in order to create lasting change.
Unlock your mind, body and experience limitless potential.
*Please note that this method does not replace psychological treatment in case of severe psychological illnesses however it has proven to dramatically increase overall wellbeing by resolving pain symptoms along with stress and tension.
After several sessions with Nadia, I finally feel that my long-term problem with pain in my neck is coming to an end. I’ve been very impressed with Nadia's expertise. The exercises given to me to do between sessions have been surprisingly simple yet really effective.
