  1. IMG_1638As a body worker, I prefer to avoid technical language if it isn’t shared by my clients.  I’m more interested in moving beyond a  clinical expert/passive patient dynamic, preferring instead an approach that belives that you the client are the expert in what your body is saying. I can be an expert at asking the right questions, either verbally or with my hands, but ultimately it is you that has the answers.  However, there is something important to explore first; the way the language we use informs the way we see and experience our bodies.  A great deal of the information that we gather about our bodies is rarely from our bodies.  Many of us have come to understand our bodies and how they function from an external, reductionist medical model rather than a felt, internal, holistic viewpoint, and this may be preventing us from having a truly connected, self-aware perception.
