WHEN IS IT A GOOD TIME TO RECEIVE
INTEGRATIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY & BODYWORK?
Many different situations motivate clients to reach out for relief. Integrative Therapy is especially useful if you’re experiencing:
· Lack of focus
· Work- and family-related pressure
· Anxiety brought on by crisis or trauma
· Physical pain, illness or disease
· A desire to integrate your healing beyond talk therapy
Integrative Therapy can also be used to support wellness before problems become overwhelming and to maintain optimal function. Consistent sessions offer the most thorough support, and can foster long-term growth while working on complex issues. Single sessions rejuvenate the body and mind, restoring balance and ease.
― Rainer Maria Rilke
Polarity draws from the logic of many systems (including the Ayurvedic chakra system) and integrates emotion, thought and physical sensation.

Somatic Experiencing (SE) "is a potent psychobiological method for resolving trauma symptoms and relieving chronic stress. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma." from http://www.traumahealing.org/
