“I felt enormously better after my session with you. Quite a change after unremitting discomfort for a month.”
– K.S. client
Any discomfort or pain from mild to intense, from acute to chronic, is our body’s way of saying, “Stop. Something’s not right here. Do something differently.”
Sara invites you to do something differently by recognizing not only the pain, but also possibilities, here and now, for pain relief and release.
“Many thanks for all you have done to help me shake hands with my Self.”
– M.O., client
Emotions arise from our biochemistry, express themselves through the body, affecting and shaping the body. The opposite is also true: the body’s shape and physiology affect emotions. When we use somatic therapy to explore emotions via the body–and conversely, the body through emotions and thoughts–it becomes possible to free tensions and also increase your range of emotional response.
“I am doing so much better, which is amazing because the problem’s been going on for 1.5 years [since a miscarriage]… I’m very, very happy with how I feel now.”

Women’s bodies conceive, grow, and deliver babies. To do this requires a strong and balanced pelvic system: uterine muscle itself, other pelvic organs and muscles, connective tissue, including the many ligaments that secure the uterus to the pelvis’ bony structures and the bones to each other.
