When performed correctly, massage is a powerful intervention that will provide relief from bodily stress, anxiety, loneliness, and isolation that you face as you journey your path of grief and bereavement. Gentle massage, a listening presence, and deep relaxation in a calming environment are vital during this time of your life and will provide respite and strength for your body.
We increase our suffering through our attempts to avoid it. If we try to escape from grief, we often develop a sense of numbness in our bodies and in our life.
Hakomi is a mindfulness-based, somatic therapy. Mindfulness refers to a relaxed and gentle way of focusing your attention inward. Somatic therapy incorporates your body with a warm, therapeutic presence and professional guidance, offering you a safe and quiet space to go within and meet yourself on the inside. It is an invitation to simply meet what is arising within you and to turn towards what you often try to avoid.
Online or in-person sessions will guide you into the following results:
When we fully embrace our grief with our mind, body, and soul, we can then wake fully to our life!
When we lose someone we love, we often feel scared, alone, shaken, anxious, and confused. It takes a true commitment to heal our grief, and to heal our grief is to become whole again. Healing through grief takes time and the support of others and sharing your journey with an experienced grief companion can be invaluable.
Our sessions provide you a safe space to give voice to your feelings, share your stories, and feel heard, seen and authentically supported. Grief companioning is especially helpful for those experiencing a loss due to death, divorce, job change, diagnosis of advanced illness, anticipatory grief, caregiver grief or simply missing ourselves.
Grief Companion sessions are offered as a standalone service, either in person or online, and can be integrated with other body-centered bereavement services through The Grief Training Center of Wisconsin.
