What to expect in a somatic therapy session

Catherine brings a warm, empathetic presence in bodywork and counsel. The somatic approach is woven into all therapies, which varies by your preference and concerns. 

Somatic sessions may be on the massage table or on the floor for movement. Somatics include activities, touch, sounding, body-based imagery or finding release in physical or emotional challenges. Catherine employs resonant touch and developmental movement of somatic therapy that’s uniquely relevant for babies and mothers. She draws on developmental movement as the wellspring of body and mind integration for all ages. 

Find what to expect for specific modalities for each stage of your journey and of your children’s life.

  • Somatic support for women is found in myofascial therapy, Body Ready Method®, Spinning Babies® and mindfulness practices.
  • Somatic support for infants and toddlers is provided with craniosacral therapy and developmental movement therapy. Children and adults can also receive craniosacral therapy and developmental movement.

When a woman or child needs health care along with developmental and somatic therapy, Catherine may make referrals and team with integrative practitioners, birth workers, breastfeeding colleagues or mental health practitioners and may recommend returning to a medical care provider.
