About Koa —

Led by her own healing crisis of years of chronic pain, mental health issues, and a deep and unrelenting exhaustion of the soul, in 2011 Koa received a biodynamic craniosacral session that changed her life. She immediately began studying and after many courses and personal apprenticeships with three different teachers in the United States and South America, she opened her practice in 2016. Koa is a Certified Practitioner through the Dynamic Stillness School, a branch of biodynamic practice that originated and is evolving from William Sutherland's Cranial Osteopathy. This past year, Koa has had the privilege of serving as Assistant to Giorgia Milne in her year-long Advanced Mentor Course.

About Sessions —

Sessions begin with a guided meditation and an invitation to rest in the Heart of Stillness. We are informed and guided by Primary Respiration and the Breath of Life: the life-force that breathes all of Nature. In doing so we gain greater access to our own innate lifeforce essence and potency. Whether one receives visions, messages, or deep sleep during a session, they will leave with a greater embodied sense of feeling grounded, integrated, rested and renewed.

“Trust the Tide.”

These restorative healing sessions allow for deep rest; building trust, resilience, and lifeforce in the body — first and foremost in the nervous system. Presence and Stillness become portals through which coherence reorganizes. By holding the body with gentle contact, we are able to sense and listen to the movement of the cerebral spinal fluid and to the rhythmic tides that permeate and breathe the fluid matrix of the body.

“…in the harmony of productive silence.”

Accessing the deepest reserves within the parasympathetic nervous system, shifts and healings occur in the body as well as in various states and stages of consciousness. Dream-like states and visionary experiences are common. We unwind and reestablish equilibrium — transmuting pain, tension, stuck energies; and dissipating emotional blockages.

“Rest in the Health.”

Sessions are scheduled for 1.5 hours for time to drop in first with healing tea, and for integration afterwards. For newcomers, a series of sessions is recommended as they build upon one another; as the body retrains and remembers to down-regulate and incorporate its own healing.
