Embodied Health operates with a bold vision: Body-based healing practices can counter oppression and create cultural transformation.
We believe that body-based healing including trauma-informed yoga, somatic therapy, supportive touch, and education can effectively provide you with the body awareness, strength and resiliency necessary to challenge cultural and social injustices. Staff at Embodied Health take the time to understand what factors shape your life, in other words, your unique composition: this includes your gender and sexual identities, race and cultural identities, disabilities, your religious and spiritual expressions, class identities, and history of traumatic stress. With this information, we shape an effective approach specific to your needs and interest in transformative healing.
We also understand that the interaction between your identity and the therapist's identity, significantly impacts the effectiveness of your healing therapy. As therapists, we aspire to provide respectful, effective services and deliver them in a manner that you can use for healing.
Integral to our unique approach to body-based therapies, we invite you to:
- Participate actively in shaping the structure of your therapeutic sessions.
- Consider the complex intersection of your body and its responses to social and cultural injustices.
- Discover how your own healing can change the way you relate to social issues in your communities.
- Engage in conversation about the possibilities of utilizing your transformation and healing to challenge oppression and create healthier communities.
Embodied Health's work and mission arise from the foundational knowledge that the microcosm (individuals) affects the macrocosm (communities), in other words, when you nurture your own health and become conscious of the intersections between health and social structures, you gain the capacity to positively influence the health of your communities.
"If healing appears to come from outside of you, it is only because you have also joined your own inner power of healing with it."
