Work With Me
By the time we have a physical ailment we have been suffering from a dis-ease, spiritually, emotionally, or mentally and the last stop is physical disease. Our body is the densest aspect of our spirit, not separate from it. In order to heal, we listen to the body to discover the root, the body is the messenger. Careful listening is the essential guide to the art of my work.
My approach guides one beyond being directed externally into our own intuitive sense of our body wisdom. We reconnect to and move from our own sovereign knowing. We are internally guided by YOU; your breath (which can reveal and heal unconsciously held belief patterns), your sensations (the language of the nervous system) your emotions (energy in motion and our guidance system).
One definition of healing is to make the self whole again, In an atmosphere of loving presence, together we listen and weave the pieces of yourself back into wholeness.
Sessions include Somatic Counseling, Breathwork, Bodywork, Energywork movement meditation and sound/ vibrational healing depending on the needs and goals of each person.
All of these techniques are rendered virtually ineffective if done without presence. Loving presence allows for the mystery of each particular session to unfold.
"I am a long-time regular client of Melanie. Simply put, a session with her is sublime! Melanie possesses wisdom, intuition, compassion, and integrity. Her presence is amazing, as is her heart. Melanie is a very special person, and a session with her is a healing and transformational experience."
"Ive been seeing Melanie Kay for at least 2 years, mostly the 90 minute or longer. She brings wisdom and sensitivity to the sessions. Her ability to meet me at my most vulnerable place is incredibly healing, not only physically, but psychologically and spiritually as well. I have deep respect and gratitude.
"There are few times in your life where you get what you ask for, that's what happened when I visited Melanie. I have been having trouble relaxing enough to sleep...struggling with apprehensiveness etc.
I mentioned these things to her and and spoke of stress points in the body...her techniques were very skilled and she brought awareness to places that I didn't even think I had contraction.
I feel rejuvenated.
