Somatic Intensives Are Now Available at Bodhisattva Bodywork
Somatic Intensives are a one-, two- or three-day personal retreat, with multiple bodywork sessions per day. They are an ideal way to experience the positive outcomes of therapy in a shortened amount of time. You will benefit from a Bodhisattva Bodywork Somatic Intensive if you:
wish to kick-start and/or accelerate your healing process
must travel to have access to a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP™) who is also professionally licensed in and highly trained in modalities which work hands-on with developmental and shock trauma
wish to treat your whole person, with a combination of specific, trauma-focused somatic work (Somatic Experiencing® , Somatic Touch) and classic bodywork treatments (massage, reiki, cranio-sacral therapy).
Somatic Intensives may contain four to twelve 50-minute sessions. Area residents may choose to start with a single day, while those traveling to Chapel Hill may opt for a full two- or three-day program. As an example, a one-day Intensive morning might contain a Physio-Spiritual Etheric Bodywork or reiki session to clear energy fields and an SE™/Somatic Touch session, followed post-lunch break by another SE™/Somatic Touch session and a relaxing, integrating massage. A typical three-day Intensive is structured with one or two sessions on the evening of arrival, two morning and two afternoon sessions the following day, and two to four sessions on the final day. Regardless, each Somatic Intensive is custom-designed and is constructed around your specific therapy goals.
Maximum benefit will be attained with careful adherence to retreat-like constraints. A clear schedule and minimal contact with outside demands and electronic devices is best. Your body may feel tired, and it is recommended that time between sessions be spent resting or engaging in contemplative light exercise (strolling, gentle yoga, etc.). This time is your gift to yourself—allow yourself to be immersed in the experience!
Intensives are available seven days a week, but must be scheduled well in advance. You are my only client during your Somatic Intensive. Weekday pricing is $159/session (Monday-Thursday); weekend pricing is $199/session (Friday-Sunday). A 30 minute follow-up videochat session is included at no extra charge with all Somatic Intensives.
Bodhisattva Bodywork is located at 141 Providence Road in Chapel Hill, NC, just off Interstate 40 between Chapel Hill and Durham, and about a 20 minute drive from Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Out-of-town clients will find numerous lodging and dining options nearby, and rental cars, Uber, and Lyft are readily available. Kayak and Yelp are great planning and reservation resources, and I’m also happy to offer suggestions.
Between sessions, you may enjoy local hiking and walking areas. The beautiful Duke Gardens, North Carolina Botanical Gardens, and Unity Center of Peace Serenity Trail are also just a short drive away.
Any transportation, lodging, and dining costs are in addition to Somatic Intensive pricing, and are the responsibility of the client.
