SHAMANIC BODYWORK, TRAUMA RELEASE, AND YOGA
Shamanic bodywork is an intuitive process and also includes energy work. It is designed to faciliate deep release of trauma held in the body, as well as "stuck" energy and emotions.
We always begin by bringing in sage smudging and breathwork, and we create an intention for our work together. I weave in various shamanic tools, such as rattles, feathers, and chakapa (leaf bundle), aromatherapy, and sound bowls, as well as the sound of my own voice. I call in the Divine Mother energy to bring you into a deep space of feeling held. My touch is gentle, yet penetrative, and I work on the areas of the central channel, such as the head, jaw, throat, sternum, abdomen, and pelvis. This work is a meditation and is designed to bring you into a trance state, where you can find a deep reset and deep healing. It is not uncommon for deep releases such as crying, tremoring, sounding, and sighing. You will leave feeling lighter, loved, and supported.
"Bonnie is the best body worker I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I don't know how she does it. It feels like magic. She gets to places that I never even knew were there and I feel like I am floating at the end of a session!" Kevin C., Houston, TX
It is well-known that the "body keeps the score." While we may have worked through our traumas on certain levels, we must also work to release it through the body. I use a combination of yoga postures and trauma-release exercises, as well as abdominal massage, to assist your body in the release of traumas that have been held. These traumas may be remembered or held deeply in the subconscious and may also be ancestral. It is not necessary to remember a trauma to release it from the body. This work is gentle yet very effective. I will teach you ways that you can continue this work on your own.
