Bodywork by Rachel
Nervous System Regulation
Welcome! I’m Rachel Hardy, CMT. I’m here to support you in creating a deeper connection to your body that allows you to move with freedom, feel your best, release old patterns of tension on every level, and experience the full embodiment of the life you’re here to live.
The results that my clients typically experience include release of muscle tension and pain; greater flexibility and resilience, a “letting go” of past emotional and physical patterns, and an increased sense of well-being, comfort, connection, and presence in their bodies.
I come from a holistic and trauma-informed approach to bodywork, bringing my current training in Somatic Experiencing to each session in whatever ways are appropriate and helpful. (Somatic Experiencing is a modality developed by Dr. Peter Levine. It works on a nervous system level to bring greater regulation and balance in the body. I am currently a student in the three year SE Practitioner Training Program, and incorporate these practices and principles into my work).
With a background in a medical office and 10 years in private practice, I’m here to bring my own blend of clinical application and carefully honed intuitive skills to support you in your highest level of conscious embodiment- in short, feeling great in your body!
Having come through and healed from an array of chronic illness that began when I was quite young (CFIDS/ CFS/ ME, Fibromyalgia, Anxiety, Depression and PTSD), I know what it’s like to struggle through each day and to feel “at war” with your body. And I also know how good it is to feel awesome and amazing and in touch with all the life force and energy that is who you truly are.
I’m here to support you on your wellness journey and guide you into deeper connection with the physical being that is you, feeling into the vibrational resonance of the body you’re here to have. (And, probably let go of a whole lot of tension along the way).
