My approach to healing is based on the paradigm of the body-mind connection. That perspective has been always present in traditional, ancient practices but nowadays is also well scientifically proven, thanks to the research on trauma and neuroscience.
The session starts with a verbal, body-oriented, inquiry dedicated to exploring a topic you want to address in your therapeutic process. That allows you to discover the roots of emotional patterns, learn how they manifest as tension in your body, and relax into them more. It is the first step towards finding ease, self-compassion, and acceptance.
Later, with the combination of breath, touch, and movement I guide you to release holding patterns and reach a deeper state of relaxation through bodywork and breathwork. The session ends with reflecting on your insights, and on ways to integrate them into everyday life.
Every session has its unique shape and we adjust the amount of inquiry to bodywork, and breathwork depending on your intentions and needs.
This process allows you to create more freedom, inner peace, and self-acceptance. After the series of sessions, my clients feel clearer about what they want and need, more content about life, and relaxed about the future.
In my practice, I combine techniques from different bodywork schools, and healing approaches coming from the worlds of trauma therapy, embodiment, breathwork, somatic inquiry, and mindfulness. Paths that I have been studying are Myofascial Energetic Release, Biodynamic Breathwork and Trauma Release System, Circling, Bodynamics, and Compassionate Inquiry by Gabor Mate.
The recommended process is a series of sessions happening every 1 or 2 weeks, in total from 4 up to 20 sessions, depending on the work you have done already, and the goals you want to reach. The price of a 90min session is from 900 to 1200 dkk depending on the package.
The first session is only 600 dkk.
IS IT FOR YOU?
I invite you first to apply for a free inquiry session during which we explore together what you want to get help with. We check if I am the right person to work with you and give you ideas on how your healing process can look like. It often also gives participants initial insights and some relief.
If you book now, we can also meet for the
first 90 min session for only 600 dkk.
Mateusz helped me to release feelings that I had held on to for a long time. I used to be fearful or angry most of the time. After a few sessions, I was able to release these feelings. I now have a wider range of more subtle emotions. I am also more relaxed and am able to stay calm in stressful situations.
Below you can read about the main approaches which I integrate during individual sessions.
MYOFASCIAL ENERGETIC RELEASE APPROACH
MYOFASCIAL ENERGETIC RELEASE (MER) is meant to release fascia* and muscles through mostly slow and deep touch. The slowness and gentleness of the touch allow to contain and relax even into the most challenging and contracted areas. Clients usually experience a reduction of pain, deep relaxation, increased body awareness, connecting to emotions, physical or emotional release. Every treatment has its unique shape, depending on your needs. Besides slow, deep touch, it normally also includes elements of:
Work on trigger points
Release through tremors
I am meeting you with my touch, and you are invited to meet me with your breath, conscious movement, and verbal expression.
*Fascia is a connective tissue, which creates a web interconnecting muscles, organs, and basically each component of a human body. Over the last decades, more and more studies indicate that fascia's role is substantial in the processes of releasing chronic tensions and embodied traumas. If you are curious to hear more I can recommend this TedTalk or Tom Mayers prelection at Google.

BIODYNAMIC BREATHWORK AND TRAUMA RELEASE SYSTEM
The fundament of the Biodynamic Breathwork and Trauma Release System is deep, connected breath. Connected means with reduced pauses between inhalation and exhalation. When we allow for such respiration, over time, the patterns of holding suppressed responses of our body, and unexpressed emotions are loosening. As a result, one can release various physical, emotional, and energetic residues kept in the system. Those residues can be called traumas and can arise from single events in our lives (shock trauma) or from lasting exposure to a challenging environment (developmental trauma). That breathwork modality has been developed based on the work of Peter Levine in the field of trauma, and Wilhelm Reich's concept of belts of tensions and character types.
Other key elements of this practice are conscious movement, present touch, bodywork, conscious emotional and verbal expression, music, and mediation. The aim of these elements is to create space for staying present and surrendering to arising sensations and impulses while allowing for the integration of the release process. From the session you can expect:
loosening both emotional and physical holding patterns,
energetical and emotional release,
connecting with your own center,
finding deep relaxation and peace
COMPASSIONATE INQUIRY by GABOR MATE
Compassionate Inquiry® is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world.
Using Compassionate Inquiry, both the individual and therapist unveil the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real message that words both express and conceal.
Through Compassionate Inquiry, the client can recognize the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them.
“The purpose of Compassionate Inquiry is to drill down to the core stories people tell themselves – to get them to see what story they are telling themselves unconsciously; what those beliefs are, where they came from; and guide them to the possibility of letting go of those stories, or letting go of the hold those stories have on them …
That’s what Compassionate Inquiry is.”
~ Dr. Gabor Maté
