Hellerwork Structrual Integration
During each session, I listen to your unique "body-story" with care, honor your pain, help you orient to your body's adaptability, and support you in finding ways to bring joyful movement back into your life.
“Samuel was able to help me find my ability to move and connect with my body again. I began to find the joy in movement I had as a child, even to the point of being able to dance in my own 59-year- old body. Joy was returning to my life!” – Becky
Deep Connective Tissue Bodywork
Hellerwork works by releasing tension and restrictions in the connective tissues of the body including the fascia, muscles, and ligaments. I integrate a variety of techniques to help the body's various tissues become more adaptive and resilient. During your sessions, bodywork may be performed regionally, targeting certain areas as needed. The work is organized to develop better alignment, improve balance, and support the whole body.
Movement education works by helping you become more aware of your body and movement habits. I will guide you to pay attention to your posture, breath, and everyday activities. I'll also teach you exercises that help you explore movement in new ways, self-care practices to help areas of unease, and practical tools to help you integrate to a "movement lifestyle."
This is a unique, key component of Hellerwork which involves a verbal exchange between myself and the client. I will use specific questions and cues to guide your attention to your body and internal experience, with the goal of increasing self awareness at all levels - physical, mental, emotional, and relational. This dialogue helps facilitate a deeper body-mind connection and can shift physical, emotional, and movement patterns.
Integrating Additional Bodywork, Movement, and Somatic Practices
Since becoming a Certified Hellerwork Practitioner, I've immersed myself in continuing education in the fields of bodywork, movement education, and somatic dialogue. As a passionate learner, I weave together many interests and modalities, integrating them into our sessions together.
I'd love to hear from you and answer your questions.
