Embodied Inner Alchemy™ – Somatic Breath-work and Body-work
What I have come to understand during my life so far is that all of our experiences are engrained within the cells of our body, both pleasant and unpleasant. Unpleasant experiences from our past, across the range of everyday stress, interpersonal disputes, abuse and trauma can result in fear of not being good enough, anger outbursts, blaming others for our situation, not living our life to the fullest or closing ourselves off from dreaming big.
I have come to appreciate the true benefits of breath. Many of us truly don’t breathe deeply enough! With this particular healing, when we activate our breath and start to work in conjunction with our body, any experience that we may have consciously or unconsciously suppressed can begin to soften and emerge. This starts a healing process that creates expansion in the body where we can feel more alive. This healing is one in which you will definitely feel the benefits of breath and the sensation of your life-force or your own particular ‘Chi’ energy flowing through your body, most possibly for the very first time!

What does a Somatic Breath-work and Body-work session look like?
Your Somatic Breath-work and Body-work session begins with a chat with me to discover what you feel is a priority for you in this moment. An agreement is made as to which parts of your body you do not want to be touched in order to provide a safe container for both parties.
Somatic Breath-work and Body-work is practiced with you lying down on your back on a massage bed. The breath is intentionally engaged in a conscious, connected and relaxed manner, with no pauses between inhalation and exhalation and can flow either in and out of the nose or mouth. By breathing this way, your body naturally begins to release physical tension and surface levels of stress.
While guiding you as you breathe, I will also touch or hold different energy points, often called meridians, on your body to support it in releasing any tension that you are carrying or to release any deeper emotional and mental experiences that have been stored. Experiencing the engagement of breath and body wisdom in the safe container of your healing session, your brain and body can learn to release what no longer serves you.
As your Embodied Inner Alchemy™ Practitioner, I have been somatically trained for 2 years to be able to provide a safe and transformative healing space for you with a great deal of integrity and no judgment. Having also experienced these sessions for my own personal healing, I have gained a deeper connection with my body and by doing so, I am able to bring much wisdom to emotionally and somatically attune to you during your session.
I felt fully supported.
Frances is a very dedicated healing practitioner who uses differing healing modalities to help clients. One new and interesting treatment involved a few sessions with Frances where I was actively participating by use of intense clearing breath and body work. Frances was very skilled in the bodywork component of this dynamic healing work. I felt that some old thought patterns which were preventing me from moving forward emotionally were indeed shifted by the end of the few sessions. Afterwards I also felt quite relaxed and fully supported by Frances’ caring and compassionate manner. I would definitely recommend Frances for healing old wounds.
