Prenatal Journey Massage

Aquatic Prenatal Journey with Somatic Experiencing®

Aquatic Prenatal sessions focus on healing pre-birth trauma.

We can struggle with thoughts and behaviour patterns that are directly related to difficulties that might have arisen during conception, implantation, development and birth and the first months after birth.

Through posture, movement and supported safe immersion in warm water, Masta recreates these earliest developmental stages –  inviting clients to re-experience the nurturing and blissful warmth of the womb.

Through this unique session consisting of Somatic Experiencing, Inner Child work, Remedial Massage in warm water, Craniosacral work and Aquatic Bodywork, I offer insightful and skilled support for meeting challenges.

I studied Aquatic Prenatal journey with David Sayer.

 

“The body keeps the score” - Bessel van der Kolk

Though we cannot recall them, we all hold impressions of our experience in the womb and our birth. This very beginning of our life is crucial developmental period that influences our flourishing. By revisiting these this experience in a therapeutic setting, within a large body of water akin to the nurturing bliss of the womb, we can explore trauma that may linger in the body, nervous system, and the mind - cellular memory can be rewritten using these techniques.

 

Somatic Experiencing®

I am passionate about my current life - transforming 4 year study Somatic Experiencing® by Dr. Peter Levine.

An Embodied Approach to Individual Therapy.

A session unfolds in an organic & creative way, depending on the issues arising and according to what is ready to be met. 

The sessions consist of three parts. We start with a check in, a space to share your wishes and intentions and open what may need to be expressed. From here we can explore how that feels and moves through your body, and listen to what your body has to share - connecting you to innate resources to facilitate self-healing in day-to-day life.

The second part is the massage in warm water, where I address the body’s needs through touch, massage, being held, moved, danced and stretches. The (optional) final part is to experience freedom through fully submerging under water. 

Integrate the past and live with greater ease to flow from presence

Through the re-patterning of your nervous system, you can return to healthy self-regulation and aid the release of tension and trauma stored in the body.  You will be provided valuable tools and resources to assist with challenges and to feel more grounded in your life, such as the capacity to meet the wounds of the past with greater compassion. This integration allows your life to unfold with loving awareness & presence.

We all want to be seen and heard in our deepest authenticity. When we experience being held in warmth, both physically and emotionally, relational healing occurs, attending to early attachment wounds. Progressively, this can support healthy, secure connection in your relationships. 

 

Alongside the diverse combination of techniques I use, the work can involve:

·Learning to track sensations and feelings in the body to support nervous system regulation

·Unique exercises to support repairing boundaries and empowerment

·Connecting with your Inner Child, playful or wounded, as well as Inner Protectors and other Inner Resources
