WELCOME! I'm Meta
a holistic body therapist
an explorer of movement,
dance & embodiment
continually curious about what it means to inhabit my body and be mindful
attentive, empathetic, genuine
a person or thing that makes an action or process easy or easier.
Like many people in the healing world, a big part of my journey to becoming a therapist was through my own healing process.
My personal healing story
When I started receiving Biodynamic Craniosacral (BCST), I had already been studying bodywork, mindfulness and movement. However, I was not aware of just how much tension I was holding in my body nor how deep the patterns and effects were.
I was suffering from TMJ and vertigo. I was struggling with anxiety and stress.
I was (and still am!) curious and investigating how I am and am not present with my body/mind... in all its glory and complexities. I was/am committed to my state of well-being.
After only a few treatments, I not only felt a major shift in my conditions but also in my awareness of my patterns. I was delighted and relieved. My husband, suffering from other ailments such as ADD, was also experiencing major shifts in his symptoms from BCST. That was it, I was also absolutely intrigued with the therapy and wanted to learn more.
Since 2013, I've been through 2 different BCST courses, assisted for 2 yrs on certification courses, attended massage school, and finished an Israeli bodywork method- Ilan Lev.
Not only do I continue to build my skills so I can be a better practitioner, I do it for my own health and healing. I see it as an art, a practice and a way of life.
How we experience our body influences how we perceive our life.
I can help you meet, witness, honor and release your body/mind patterns that cause you pain and suffering.
I can help you shift the way you experience your body to help bring more ease & comfort.
I can help you feel better in your body.
