EMBODIMENT FACILITATION & AYURVEDIC HEALTH CONSULTING
Making use of almost two decades in relationship with embodiment fields and contemplative practices Nan will meet you where you are and support you in expanding and deepening your embodied journey. Attuning to the specific needs presenting for each individual, an experience is curated for you with your goals in inquiries in the forefront. Sessions are trauma informed and inspired by practices of: Ayurveda, Yoga, Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, 5Rhythms Dance, Chanting, Feldenkrais, Meditation, Breathwork, Tai Chi, Massage & Mother Nature.
Esalen massage is a gentle, soothing massage capable of inducing deep relaxation in the recipient. Using long, graceful strokes to heighten the client’s awareness of bodily experiences, the practitioner gives attention to the entire body in this approach.
Nan’s approach utilizes this foundation and draws from eclectic modalities creating an experience for each individual with a foundation of presence and embodied meditation. The awareness and meditative presence cultivated between client and practitioner, rather than any special technique, is what is believed to promote healing: as we become conscious of the various ways we hold tension in our bodies, our minds may be better able to naturally begin the process of letting go and the re-organization of chronic held patterns mentally, physically, and emotionally can be catalyzed.
Deep Bodywork combines the integrating qualities of a flowing Esalen massage with the therapeutic effectiveness of deep tissue work. Using these healing modalities in combination opens realms of possibility to the bodywork practitioner unavailable through the application of one or the other alone.
Nan offers packages for 1.5 and 2 hour massage sessions.

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”
