"It was in relationship to melanoma that the notion of a type "c" personality was first proposed, a combination of character traits more likely to be found in those who develop cancer than in people who remain free of it.....Type "c" personalities have been described as 'extremely co-operative, patient, passive, lacking assertiveness and accepting...the type "c" individual, in our view, suppresses or represses 'negative' emotions, particularly anger, while struggling to maintain a strong and happy facade."

So What Do We Do? 

We learn to listen to our body and a hands on bodywork session can help you

  • find areas in your body that need healing

  • feel supported as you uncover difficult emotions and memories

  • focus on areas that need your attention

  • provide safety and pacing so you don't get overwhelmed

  • discern what your body might be saying

  • dissolve areas of tension by connecting them to childhood trauma and story

  • resource yourself, increasing your access to wholeness, what is RIGHT with you

  • release what is no longer necessary

  • connect deeply to yourself and to what you carry and why you carry it

  • learn to love yourself

  • come HOME to YOURSELF
