I am offering individual sessions that are based on elements of touch, breath, movement, inquiry, and meditation. The approach which I am offering comes from trauma-informed therapies. The most common symptoms and areas with which I am supporting clients are:
Stress and anxiety
Traumas (shock and developmental)
Body fatigue, tiredness, lack of vitality
Chronic pains (lower back, neck, shoulder, stomach, head, jaws...)
We can work together within the frame of Body or Breath therapy. The principles and science behind these sessions are similar, but the focus shifts from bodywork to breathwork as the main component. Below you can find more information about these approaches or book a session. Exchange is in the range of 800 - 1250 dkk/session. You are welcome to find the price in that range which you can afford.
I recommend working in a series of sessions happening every 1 or 2 weeks. Over time your body can learn new ways of responding to life and release old tensions and behavioral patterns.
MYOFASCIAL ENERGETIC RELEASE
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
A session starts by exploring the client's needs and expectations in the context of body treatment and reflecting on what is present physically and emotionally for the client. Following, sometimes the body reading is done, where we look into physical and muscular patterns, to have an idea about the body on a more structural level. Later we move through the grounding, meditative process to help to connect more to the present moment and its experience. During the session, I try to guide a client into awareness of breathing and exploration of breathing patterns, which often stands on the way to release tensions and blockages. Another important component is conscious movement (stretching, unwinding), which allows for integrating tissues' release into the entire body. Finally, another important element is a mutual communication about what is happening in the body, mind, and emotions. We try to name arising sensations and use them as guidance throughout the session.
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 surrendered 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
A session starts by exploring the client's needs and expectations in the context of breathwork and reflecting on what is present physically and emotionally. Later I am providing introduction information about breathing techniques, ways of inviting movement to the body, a concept from trauma work called pendulation, and name a range of sensations that can be experienced by a client. Before breathwork, I am guiding through the process which aims to determine the so-called resources in the client's body. A resource is a place to which one feels more connected, rested, safer, or stronger, a place that can be taken along for the breathwork journey. Cycles of connected breathing last for around 1 hour and finish with an integration phase of around 15 minutes.
