Holistic Bodywork Services

Grace, believes that when the body, mind, heart, and spirit are aligned, health and well-being follo naturally. In medical terms, this ideal state is called “homeostasis”, and it is the physiological state of balance, harmony, and alignment for the body. You know you are moving into homeostasis (optimum health) by the feelings you experience of peace, vitality, or joy. The thing that ail us are often the very things that bring our attention back to taking care of ourselves. They remind us to keep working towards deepe levels of homeostasis – of peace, vitality, and joy. This is why the term Holistic Bodywork is a perfect description of Grace's expertise

cranioSacral therapy
When Grace Wormwood places her hands lightly on you, she is using them to listen to you in much the same way that a counsellor might listen to your words. Your body responds to this sensitive touch by beginning to listen to itself. A feeling that you have been heard in the truest sense of the word is a common experience during and after a CranioSacral session.
Pediatric therapy

The child’s body’s ability to self-correct issues which affect the body’s system. CranioSacral therapy is a semi closed hydraulic system- which produces a continuous rise and fall of fluid pressure.
This flow can be likened to the rhythmic consistent rise and fall of the oceans’ tides. As a general description our cranioSacral system flow in similar peaceful regulation. To continue the analogy a storm creates a violent disruption to these rhythms.

A similar storm caused by sensory deregulation or dysfunction in the CranioSacral system sensory will impair a child’s ability to think of ways to motor plan actions or move muscles correctly.
CranioSacral therapy can detect disruptive currents called ‘sites of restriction’. They disrupt your child which can produce such symptoms as not being able to transition from one activity to another or crying and whining.

A blockage in the CranioSacral system (a site of restriction), affects muscle movement, coordination, focus, eye movements, etc.

On a light hearted note I want to share this video with you. Watch, I think you will get a understanding of the care love and empathy I like to emulate in a session with your child. CLICK
