*Our Birth Stories & Aquatic Bodywork
MY BIRTH STORY
Remember more of who you are.
We've all been born. Birth impacts all of us for the rest of our lives. Sophia works with people of all ages, skills and abilities both on land and in water to integrate our birth experiences and 'memories' stored in our bodies in order to restore a deep sense of trust in life and in ourselves.
Sessions on land or in water can help you integrate your birth experiences focusing on the qualities of touch and movement using interoceptive narratives that guide you through birthing milestones.
Sophia uses verbal and non-verbal emotional processing techniques that help you re-connect with yourself and re-set your patterns and early impressions of life especially if there were some challenges along the way, allowing you to re-member more of who you are.
Unfolding from the inside out.
Water is a profound multidimensional environment that allows us to unfold and expand ourselves from the inside out. Sophia merges a number of aquatic modalities to hold space for people of all ages in water to re-member aspects of themselves into an integrated whole. Swimming with a tail in open water, facing your fears beyond your comfort zone or simply dropping deeper into yourself, Sophia offers a number of aquatic bodywork treatments depending on weather conditions and where one is at. She particularly enjoys working with entire families in water helping them release intergenerational patterns and create new paradigms.
“While immersed in warm water, remembering the details of my own birth journey, I began to see birth from a baby’s perspective.”
