Ashanna, tell us how you incorporate breathwork, body meditation, and energy healing into your sessions? And what benefits do clients typically experience?
All of these modalities weave together seamlessly to create a safe and sacred space for deep healing and transformation. Light Body meditation activates inherent energy centers, providing an expanded sense of self and a greater connection to what we call the “higher self”. Clarity breathwork brings healing on emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual levels. It supports clients to unravel deep layers of stored emotions, old beliefs, and imprints all the way back to the wombtime experience, birth, and beyond freeing and liberating their life force energy to create a more joyful and purposeful life now. Energy work anchors this into the client’s body and life. Clients experience incredible transformation, including greater self-love, inner peace, improved relationships, abundance, and connection to their higher purpose. They often resolve early impactful experiences where they got stuck or “frozen” as we say in Somatic Experiencing. Once this energy is liberated client has a sense of coming home to themselves and experiencing their innate value and well-being.
Can you share a specific example of how Somatic Experiencing has played a transformative role in a client’s healing process?
With somatic experiencing, clients are supported to slow down into present-moment awareness and sensations and learn to orient toward pleasure in their bodies or their lives before tapping into pain and trauma. We work on pendulating between the traumatic experience and an experience of pleasure or safety. In one case, a client recalled the feeling of being deeply loved by her grandmother. Whenever she reached her grandmother’s door, she knew she was safe and loved. By anchoring her to this pleasurable experience, she felt safe enough to begin to unravel and release the impact of sexual trauma at home. Pendulating as we do in SE between these experiences led to deeper integration, self-love, and a sense of release and safety.
In your practice, how do you combine ritual dance and movement to enhance the mind-body connection and promote healing?
I believe we are ritual human beings. We love to celebrate holidays and rites of passage in our lives. Reintroducing sacred rituals anchors us to Mother Earth and to the community, providing a sense of connection and deeper meaning in our lives. Dance and movement allow us to more fully come into our bodies and move energy. We can access both pleasure and discomfort, and both bring to the surface and release what the mind cannot. Recent psychology emphasizes that healing occurs through the body, and ritual dance facilitates this deep connection, fostering incredible healing. Plus it can bring a lot more joy and freedom into the hard work of healing.
What role does energy healing, particularly Reiki, play in your approach? And how does it contribute to the overall well-being of your clients?
Reiki is a profound energy of universal love and light. Transmitting this energy creates a sense of peacefulness and well-being, allowing clients to deeply relax. The safety created by Reiki enables clients to let go, facilitating natural healing. We want to heal we are just waiting for a safe enough space so that we can do what we are naturally designed to do–heal and come into integration. The system waits for a safe space, and Reiki provides that safety.
How do you adapt your techniques to the individual needs and preferences of your clients when integrating various modalities?
Each client is unique, bringing themselves to the modalities. We support them in finding their own way, whether it’s in breathwork, meditation, or dance. Clients breathe, move, and meditate at their own pace and rhythm, ensuring the approach aligns with their needs and preferences.
Describe the significance of creating a sacred and safe space for clients during sessions and how this contributes to the effectiveness of your holistic approach.
Creating a safe and sacred space is crucial. Showing up as present, open, and curious is a relief to the client’s entire system. Most of us lacked conscious witnessing or truly unconditional love during our childhoods, and providing that support allows clients to begin the deeper work of healing. Confidentiality, support, and the belief that they are already healed and whole are key elements in creating this safe space.
