Integral Bodywork


Integral Bodywork® uses the body as a  gateway to the process of Surrender and the experience of Grace.  It requires a paradigm shift.  It is about the transformation and evolution of consciousness. Releasing the body’s matrix of connective tissue enhances structural integration which enables the individual to re-connect with the infinite potential of Being. -EVERETT OGAWA, teacher and sage guru

Our journey on this planet, in this body is an amazing one filled with unimaginable joy and unavoidable pain. Our bodies connective tissue (fascia) stores memory, emotion and trauma both physical and emotional, left unprocessed it builds in our system blurring the way we move through space and how we react to the world around us. The Integral Bodywork approach looks to reverse years of emotional hoarding and monotonous body mechanics bringing you a body that houses less physical pain. 

Each of the 10 sessions are deep tissue and have a specific focus, with special attention given to our Iliopsoas which is our deep core muscles that houses our deep emotional and energetic blocks.

Integral Bodywork structural integration is a product of the teachings of Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkrais, Dub Leigh and Lauren Berry. It also draws upon the teachings of yoga, meditation, zen and martial arts.

If you are new to the IB experience I ask that you schedule your first session as the Integral Bodywork Intro session.  We will discuss how the program works, the language of and how to communicate what you are feeling and need while receiving IB, and you will experience foundational techniques found in every session.  If you are of limited means please email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

This work has been extremely helpful for my personal development and growth. I have worked through past trauma (being bullied in my teens) which showed up as anxiety, depression and even rage.  I feel more fearless than I have ever felt in my life. My Yoga and meditation practice is stronger than it's ever been, I'm even training to be be a Kundalini Yoga teacher! This is why I want to bring this work to my existing clients and to any new people that feel drawn to work with me. 

Much love,
