The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) is an advanced therapeutic model created by Dr. Lawrence Heller that treats the effects of attachment, developmental and complex trauma.
Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a body-based approach developed by Dr. Peter Levine to enhance regulation in the nervous system.
Trauma-Informed Massage Therapy
Trauma-informed massage therapy serves clients who have experienced impact to their nervous system. The purpose of each session is to provide the general benefits that massage therapy brings but with the added security of working with a therapist who has advanced education in trauma physiology and is skilled in working with dysregulation in the nervous system.
Somatic bodywork is a session of Somatic Experiencing® or NARM with the added element of therapeutic touch. It's different from massage therapy because its purpose is to enhance regulation in the nervous system. Massage therapy seeks to alleviate the physical symptoms of nervous system dysregulation (e.g., chronic muscle tension and pain) but does not directly address what may be driving the dysregulation itself.

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
The single most important issue for traumatized people is to find a sense of safety in their own bodies.
The paradox of trauma is that it has both the power to destroy and the power to transform and resurrect.

On Your First Visit
Parking is on the street or in a small lot behind the building. Walk right in when you arrive, no need to knock. If you get here early, however, the door will be locked because I will be in session. Not to worry, I will be ready for you right on time.
