Receive a Samacitta bodywork session
The body doesn’t lie. It is honest. The intention of the body is homeostasis, and to be as nature intended - to heal, to grow, to flourish and to follow and be directed by the natural innate cellular wisdom and intelligence that is held deep within every single cell that we have. When we connect to that innate intelligence and when we allow, we become open for miracles to happen. Whether healing from chronic illness or from emotional trauma, once we step out of the way and out of fight and flight mode and into pure unconditional love and into trust - anything and everything is possible for us from a healing perspective.
Influenced by yoga and ayurveda and by the natural tides of the sea and the rhythm of the breath Samacitta bodywork is a full body meditation using the healing art of touch, giving attention to the breath, to subtle movement, to sound and to pure essence. Long strokes with fluctuating pressure, depending upon the flow of the body. The purpose being relief, alignment, release and restoration. To discover and open the places where we hide and bury our secrets, so that we can release the old and create a renewed sense of freedom and spaciousness within. To let go of the fear, the shame, the anger, the thoughts and misdirected beliefs that create patterns and habits and that continue to pervade our sensory, cellular being from the inside out.
Katrina trained in AyurYogic bodywork and AyurBalance bodywork 13 years ago, prior to that she was giving ‘un-trained' sessions. She began her own journey into embodiment about 20 years ago following chronic illness and spiritual, physical and mental breakdown by age 27. Through bodywork grew the inspiration for being and for living again, from both receiving sessions, and from giving the power of touch and from the inner change that came as the result. It was through the art of touch and developing self and somatic awareness that she was able to really honour her true self and draw inspiration from the body's innate wisdom, and natural capacity to heal itself. With training in India from the teachings of master teacher Kusum Modak at Rasovai and then further training in with Ellen Watson from the Esalen®️ Institute in Esalen®️massage/bodywork - Katrina gives sessions today using different parts from each modality - creating a hybrid Samacitta session. It is an intuitive session on the table - fully-body deep bodywork including neck, face, hands, feet and belly: areas which are often missed and yet so vital to go deep into. The belly is the ‘brain’ of our cellular being and generates our core energy and life force/ agni or fire - and very often there are blockages here that have been buried for years and, that, after time and movement, can transform. Sessions can give a renewed sense of liberation and connection to our 'real' or true selves.
Bodywork sessions are 60 minutes (in Italy) or 90 minutes (in London 90 minutes only) and if it is your first ever bodywork sessions then pre-booking a telephone consultation beforehand to get started is a good idea. This consultation is free and gives both you and the practitioner an idea of what you may need. Katrina gives sessions from a home studio in Puglia, Italy and in London periodically (every other month) - London sessions need to be booked well in advance, to allow for travel time and planning.
