grounded touch coupled with mindfulness, compassion, total acceptance, and guided awareness invites a unique opportunity for healing and release. holistic alignment is great for folks experiencing impacts from past events such as accidents, injuries, emotional, relational, and psychological traumas. the client is guided through an experience of focused intention setting and then into a deep guided awareness of both past and present parts of self. the practitioner acts as a facilitator and guide for the client who ultimately navigates their own internal experience in a meditative state of mind. the result, a shift in the disturbance of past adversities. it is resilience in action. it is post-traumatic growth. it is unburdening self.
HOLISTIC ALIGNMENT is about "coming home to self" and offering compassion and witness to implicit memories that stored in the body during moments of fight | flight | freeze in the past. By attending to these younger parts of our selves we are able to fully integrate + let go
