Somatic Bodywork

"The body is thinking; it is form thinking its way through time. " Dana Caspersen

WHAT I BELIEVE

I believe that we are born with all the resources in our body that we need to live a full life. Every human is a deeply creative being and has something to give. Through our socialization, we have developed ideas or concepts about how we have to be. At the same time, I understand identity and life as a continuous process and exchange with many different experiences, movements, thoughts, feelings, sensations, values and entities. I also believe that much more is possible, both individually and collectively, to live a meaningful and fulfilling life, and I follow that longing. That does not mean that everything is always easy and happy on the way, but that makes it very exciting. This is also reflected in my somatic body work. Since life always seems to happen to me only with and through our bodies in motion (even if our culture likes to deny it, forget it or have a rather pejorative attitude), I would like to get the whole body, and thus the whole person moving.

HOW I WORK AND WHAT I DO

The foundation of my somatic body work is the Pantarei Approach (panta rhei, greek - everything flows) a creative client and process oriented bodywork method. Through a dialogical learning-process of conversation, touch, movement and breathing, you come back into contact with yourself through your body. In addition, I may use different methods and techniques from my many years of dancing, artistic, physical, exercise and mindfulness practice.

 

The first session lasts 90 minutes, all subsequent sessions take 60 minutes. In the first session, we both look at whether we want to work together and, with mutual consent, set the framework for follow-up sessions. The first part of a session is a conversation in which your background and intention for the session is discussed and determined. The second part takes place either in lying, sitting and / or standing with touch and if necessary in/with movement. Therefore please wear clothing, in which you feel comfortable and can move well. The third part is a rest period in which you can integrate the experiences both alone and in conversation with me. Sometimes I will give you simple exercises for you to practice at home.

 

The sessions can be held in German as well as in English.

A continuous development of my skills through additional training, further education, self-exploration and simply trying out in life is self-evident for me.

WHAT I CAN NOT DO

Although I would like that, I am not a miracle healer. Therefore, my offer for somatic body work does not replace medico-medical treatments (neither psychological nor physiological).
