Bodywork's strength to direct conscious awareness into one's body, helps change the relationship to one's experience of their body. We are taught to be aware of & how we use our mind but not as much about how we feel in our bodies. Listening with a deepened awareness to what the body expresses, to what is happening in the physical body can exert a recognition of how one’s own life experience resides in the body. That connection between mind and body allows greater choice and an enhanced ability for change-- be it to breathe more deeply, move more freely or feel more connected. Change involves engaging the healing forces residing within us which we can access when we reestablish communication between body and mind.
