Something I hear all the time from moms is that since pregnancy they have never really felt like themselves again.
Even years on, they feel like they’re dragging and that everything is harder than it needs to be. They have a general feeling of being “off” that they have a hard time putting their finger on. They feel like they’re in conflict, like they’re separate from their body and they have to fight it to do anything!
And to make matters worse, they feel helpless because nobody takes the time to understand what they’re feeling.
Since they aren’t getting any useful help, they just chalk it up to “being a parent”. They resign themselves to this and get used to coming out of a massage or the chiropractor feeling beat up, sore, and a little disoriented. They show up early for yoga to warm up before the warmup. Or they avoid working out altogether because it just doesn’t feel good!
The health and wellness industry does a great job solving acute problems.
It does a crappy job helping them get back to themselves.
This is especially true of parents.
Exercise, yoga, and massage therapy can all help you feel at home in your body. But because their focus is on something else, the success is by chance.
This is where Nervous System Centered Bodywork is super effective.
In a Nervous System Centered Bodywork session, the sole focus is helping you feel fully integrated between your brain and your body.
By developing awareness, you quiet the noise.
By offering options to move differently, you learn that you can change.
By holding space to integrate awareness and options, you feel empowered.
Integration work is the most important part of the session.
Integration takes away that feeling of conflict.
It lets you feel calm and at ease. It makes the stresses, aches, and pains that come with life seem less important.
It lets you go to that yoga class confident that you won’t get hurt. It lets you feel good when you get on the floor to play with your kids.
It lets you feel like YOU.
