I went to massage school many years ago and it was such an incredibly transformational experience for me. Prior to that, I was very intellectual, priding myself on my intelligence and my ability to think and reason my way through anything. The problem was, I was also completely cut off from my body from the neck down. I was becoming increasingly ill with Lyme Disease, but had no idea what was going on at the time, other than I had a lot of pain and discomfort and was becoming increasingly more depressed. I just couldn't find an answer and think my way out of this one.
Massage school changed my life. It was there that I began to understand that mind, body, emotions and spirit were all interrelated and interdependent. I learned about how issues like depression or anxiety show up in the body, how we lock trauma into our bodies, about how healing can happen in so many other ways besides traditional talk therapy. It also started me on the alternative medicine/holistic healing path, which later led to discovering acupuncture, homeopathy, energy psychology, and all the other tools I'm using today. The modalities and techniques that I use in my practice are all the ones that I found most useful in helping me to overcome my own health and other issues.
Knowing that I would eventually go to grad school for psychology, I wondered how body/energy work and psychotherapy could work together to help heal the whole person on all levels. Years later, I've found that in the tools of Access Consciousness®. Between the Bars, body processes, and verbal clearings that Access offers, I've found a brilliant and extremely effective way to create healing for bodies and beings.
Access has discovered over 80 Body Processes; energies that can facilitate a body to change and transform. Each of these dynamic processes can be run as a hands-on energy that invites the body to begin to heal and create itself differently. In combination with verbal processes, we begin to unlock the tension, resistance, and dis-ease of the body by shifting the energy that is keeping it in place.
The Access Body Classes are designed to open up a dialogue and create a communion with your body that allows you to enjoy your body instead of fighting against it and abusing it. When you start to change the way you relate to your body, you start to change how you relate to everything in your life. People who have attended the Access Body Classes have reported dramatic shifts and changes with their body size and shape, an overall relief from chronic and acute pain, and their relationships and money issues seem to get easier too.
I recently attended an ESSE class (Energetic Synthesis of Structural Embodiment – A new Access body class for people and horses) and 3-day Body Class with Dr. Glenna Rice. What an amazing experience, especially working with the horses! I had my hands on one horse with cancer and I could actually feel the tumor shrinking under my hands as I was working on him! Since attending these classes and receiving the energy work, I personally have way less pain and tension in my muscles, easier and better sleep, and more sensations of pleasure and orgasmic bliss in body. I'm feeling calm and peaceful, finding it easier to eat only what my body desires and requires, and so much more!
I'm so inspired by these experiences that I've decided to offer more of the hands-on energy work in my practice, both in private sessions and in classes. In addition to ongoing Bars classes, I'm going to start offering individual classes on some of the 50+ body processes from the 3-day Body Class.
First up is the Access Energetic Facelift™ on Sat. May 7th. The Access Energetic Facelift is a wonderful way to rejuvenate the face and reverse the appearance of aging on the face as well as other body parts. Getting the Facelift run 20 times will create the kind of results you would get from an actual facelift, only without all the pain and expense! I've seen marked differences in people's appearance in just one session. You'll get to gift and receive the Facelift this 4-hour class. And if you are a licensed massage therapist, you can get 4 CEUs for the class.
