Mind-Body Therapy

Mind-Body Therapy support for stress, trauma and chronic pain

Mind-Body therapy honours each person as a whole and considers the interconnections of emotions, thoughts, body, spirit and life experiences in the personalized approach to care.

What is mind-body therapy used for?

Our Mind-Body Therapy service merges Western understandings of anatomy and neurophysiology with Eastern philosophy and energetic practices. One-to-one sessions help to compassionately address and support the physical, emotional and neuropsychological states that are affecting one’s life through blending tailored embodiment, mindfulness and somatic tracking practices, with neurobiology, and trauma-theory education.

This service can offer support for:
  • Anxiety + Panic attacks
  • Depression + Burnout
  • Chronic pain/fatigue
  • Nervous system regulation/sensitization
  • Sleep difficulties + Insomnia
  • Labour/birth/delivery trauma
  • Sexual trauma
  • Issues with relational intimacy
  • Menstrual Disorders and PMS
  • Body dysmorphia + Eating disorders
  • Prolapse
  • Uterine/ovarian cysts/fibroids
  • Post-concussion symptoms
  • Emotional self-regulation (difficulty expressing emotions)
Intentions of this work:
  • Reduce symptoms and effects of chronic stress, trauma, and persistent pain
  • Personalized tools, movement practices, and resourcing strategies
  • Support the repair and functioning of the autonomic nervous system and the brain’s danger alarm mechanism
  • Help to complete stress and trauma cycles
  • Support physical mobility, flexibility and strength
  • Create greater connection and attunement of your body to foster resilience, self-awareness, and presence
  • Grow the capacity to be with and work through discomfort, overwhelm, and difficult sensations
  • Cultivate a sense of hope, purpose, and ease on your path forward

*This program is not a substitute for mental healthcare or medical support. Accumulating scientific evidence suggests mind-body therapies can, however, help improve both physical and mental health and can be an impactful complementary support and integration to talk therapy and other healing modalities.
