What is bodywork? Any of a number of therapeutic or simple practices or techniques for restoring health and balance to the whole being by working through the body, mind, and spirit. I use the term in a way that promotes health and well-being holistically: addressing body, mind and spirit through our physical body whether this is nutrition, exercise, stillness or receiving therapeutic bodywork.
My practice is named after the small stream called Bear Branch where I grew up on my family's farm. Since childhood the stream has been a place of peace, support and inspiration for me. This is my goal for each individual that I have the benefit to work with - I want my practice to be a place of peace, comfort and inspiration for you. The stream symbolizes the health of an individual - sometimes stagnant, sometimes flowing and healthy. There are many variables to homeostasis whether it be an ecosystem or the human body. I've seen the stream become stagnant during dry, summer days. I have seen the stream overflow during heavy rains. I have seen the stream perfectly balanced and sparkling in the middle of winter. Sometimes the stream needs assistance in returning to balance, as we all do from time to time.
I look forward to working with you and being part of your journey....
