Lisanne Elkins, owner of Balance Bodywork Therapeutic Massage and Reiki, in Mount Kisco, says she plans to expand her professional expertise to include Somatic Experiencing, which addresses how we tend to hold trauma and traumatic memories in our physical and energetic bodies.

“I’ve decided to pursue a new course of study in Somatic Experiencing beginning in January,” she says. “This course will help me reach a greater understanding of how trauma becomes stuck in our bodies and how to release it through bodywork. I’m looking forward to learning these new techniques and to being of greater service to my clients in their pursuit of personal wellness and self-care.”

Somatic Experiencing is just one of many types of bodywork, all of which help restore the physical, emotional and energetic balance that can be lost during times of stress, Elkins says.

“I’ve heard from many of my clients that they have been feeling an oppressive, pervasive sense of anxiety,” she says. “There is a lot going on in our world that can disrupt our sense of balance, and few things are more helpful and grounding than a therapeutic bodywork or Reiki session, which gives us the valuable experience of feeling calm and able to face obstacles with more grace and ease.”
