I am experienced in giving and receiving hands-on therapies and I have been lucky enough to meet and work with Misty.  She has sensitive hands and nature and works as an instinctive therapist.

Relationship to our Lived Experience

Lived experience, what does this mean? When we allow ourselves to be internally aware we become embodied in the moment. There is no need to search for anything, we need only to be where we are...now. experiencing things as they are without judgement, without reasoning. Our relationship to our muscles, bones, inner organs, joints, the universe abiding within us is ever changing. Moment to moment we can choose to tune into our body and develop our sensory awareness.

Journeys

Continuous stress means that our nervous system is in a constant state of learning to sense less in order to cope. Somatic Movement Education (SME) and Qigong are preventative self care practices that encourage self regulation, helping us to maintain a balanced life.

What is 'dan tian'?

There are three dan tians in the body. The upper dan tian is situated between the eyebrows, also known as the third eye. The middle dan tian is in the middle of the chest, the heart area. The one we refer to most often in Qigong and Taiji practice is known as the lower dan tian. It translates as elixir or cinnabar (dan) and field (tian). The lower dan tian is where qi (energy) is cultivated and stored and then circulates throughout the body.
