Creative Healing


Our bodies tell us the truth when we listen: 

what we are hiding from, what we are capable of, and what we are called to do. 

 

As a RYT-500 certified yoga teacher, Catherine J Howard provides intensely personalized Creative Healing Sessions to remove the physical, emotional, and mental blocks keeping you from fully following your life's creative purpose.

Her utmost priority is to help you attune to what your body is telling you about those blocks. In these sessions, you will uncover your body's innate capacity to heal itself and strengthen your intuition about where your creative path is headed.

Biodynamic CRANIO-SACRAL THERAPY

In this extremely gentle hands-on energy work technique, the practitioner uses a series of light hand placements to evaluate and release restrictions in the body's craniosacral system (the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord).  As restrictions are released, the cerebrospinal fluid can circulate more freely and the central nervous system (and thereby the entire body) is calmed. Decompressing the nervous system and brings the individual into a sense of balanced wholeness. It is a joint practice of slowing and listening to the originating forces living within our fluid body. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy can be very effective in treating headaches, chronic neck and back pain, and TMJ, as well as a host of emotional issues.

 

 

THERAPEUTIC THAI YOGA

In this fully-clothed “assisted yoga” technique, the active practitioner moves the recipient's body through a range of yoga postures to release blocked areas in the body and stimulate healing in the body, mind, and spirit. Thai yoga melds together range of motion exercises, acupressure, gentle twisting, assisted Hatha yoga poses, deep tissue compression, meditation, and energy work. The recipient is not required to exert any effort and instead is invited to relax deeply. When the systems of the body are working well and energy distribution is balanced, we feel calm, happy, relaxed, energetic, and free from stiffness and pain. 

 

 

 

Mindbody centering yoga

MindBody Centering Yoga (MBCY) awakens the innate intelligence of the body/mind into its full potential. This sophisticated confluence of hatha/raja yoga, classical ballet, psychology, Alexander Technique, experiential anatomy, kinesthesiology, psycho-somatic neurology, energy medicine and spiritual sutra study supports the emergence of a healthy and whole human being. MindBody Centering Yoga teaches what research has proven: the most accessible doorway to liberation and thriving growth is through connection into the resonance of the heart. The clarity and wisdom of the MBCY technique instructs the body-mind to bypass old patterns of imbalance that create discomfort, re-patterning one's neurological map into an enhanced homeostasis of ease. Every person, then, naturally begins to self-organize, align, and attune into greater integration, strength and grace.

I went to Catherine for some simple relief. I was suffering through a ‘frozen shoulder’ that was causing me discomfort and limiting my ability to move throughout life. I had seen two people about it, not including my doctor. One of those people was a professional sports medicine person who had been working with me for a few months. We were making progress, but it was very slow.

During the session with Catherine, I was more limber in my shoulder, but the pain had subsided immensely! I couldn’t believe it. Even twirling my shoulder around, gingerly at first, it was hard to believe. I assumed it would be a temporary fix, but with some regular stretching throughout the day my frozen shoulder was cured.

Since, I’ve recommended Catherine to anyone I know who needs healing. As they say: run, don’t walk. See her today!
