Somatic Coaching with the Pantarei Approach consists of a series of meetings between practitioner and client, called sessions. A session takes about 60 minutes and includes different forms of touch combined with breathing and movement exercises. Tailored specifically according to the client’s individual aims and needs.
The intensity and the intention of the applied touch varies hugely, depending on your wishes and your physical emotional state. My touch is always curious and guided by empathy.
At the same time we work with verbal instructions. How does this touch feel? What does it do? What do we learn from the reaction of your body? Does it bring up emotions, images, memories? Following these questions we develop a dialog that leads us further.
Touch and Trust
In order to allow ourselves to be touched, we need to trust in the situation. My intention as a practitioner is always to fully see and feel my clients. I strive to listen and understand them with full attention in order to touch them through my hands and my words. The ongoing dialog between practitioner and client is, therefore, necessary to create an atmosphere of safety, understanding and expanding.
What are the results?
With bodywork, you will feel an immediately noticeable positive result post-session. You will notice changes in your physical sensation, your feeling and your thinking. For instance a deeper relaxation, a sense of wholeness or connection, increased physical presence, clarity, stillness or grounding. Through description and affirmation, physical sensations become amplified and integrated into consciousness.
