Do you experience anxiety on a daily basis?

What if you could change this feeling
into confidence, ease and inner balance...

Dynamic Balance
Body Centered Therapy

"The Antidote for anxiety is experiencing a sense of safety in your body. Once you have found this you have a foundation for healing on many levels.”       - Niseema

Niseema, founder of Dynamic Balance Body Therapy, uses Massage Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Energy Exercises and Homework to help you change your relationship to your body and your life.


Dynamic Balance Process:

7 Week Series of sessions beginning with a 90min session followed by 6 consecutive weeks.  What you will take away from this process:

  • How you can listen to your body and how you can get to know your body and it's needs.
  • You will become an expert in your body's unique language of SIBAM - Sensation, Imagery, Behavior, Affect and Memory.
  • Learn effective ways to directly influence and impact your body's response to stressful and overwhelming experiences.
  • Increase your capacity and resilience by having resourceful experiences.  In other words, we are building a bigger box.  When you have increased capacity you have the space to release the traumatic energy without it being difficult or terrifying and it can actually be easy, playful, creative, and miraculous. 
  • You will learn about how the nervous system, musculo-skeletal system, and the visceral/organ systems all hold aspects of traumatic experience/memory and how this can be causing a lot of symptoms or syndromes that traditional medicine struggles to treat.

Throughout the 7 weeks we will practice the tools and skills needed to help you begin to dance in an intuitive way with this body of yours.  Tools for centering, grounding, boundaries and feeling safe and at ease again in your body.
When you feel internal safety you can create and have external safety.


 The Dynamic Shift: 

An intensive 6 month process. With a more expansive and slower pace the Dynamic Shift is a program I offer to clients who need to unwind complex traumas and experiences.  This 6 month process is a perfect complement to psychotherapy in that many issues presented in psychotherapy have a biological origin and can be resolved through body oriented therapies like Somatic Experiencing, Polarity Therapy and Massage.

In these 6 months you will....:

  • Commit to this process of deep change
  • Develop a collaborative relationship with your body  
  • Be open to the possibilities that a shift like this can bring

I will...  

  • Help you firmly establish a new relationship to your body through resourced experiences, .awareness and education
  • Empower you with the understanding of your body's healing capacity.
  • Encourage forever change within the context of your life.

The Dynamic Shift includes the following :

      Client Assessment and Intention Setting    90 Minute Session

  • Focused Intention for the Process
  • Detailed Intake with Medical History
  • Energetic Assessment
  • Structural Assessment
  • Brief Session Work

      Weekly Sessions 75 minutes                       

  • Session Intake
  • Session work 45-60min
  • Energetic Exercise/ Tools Instruction
  • Session Integration
  • Dedicated weekly appointment time
  • A re-assessment and check-in at 12 weeks.

About the Modalities I use to help you achieve a
Dynamic Balance in Life.

Polarity Therapy

is a holistic form of touch therapy that helps align the positive and negative electromagnetic energies of the body.  Polarity Therapy bodywork is intuitive in it’s application can be light, still, calming, balancing, stimulating or deep, encouraging the free flow of energy from head to toe.  Polarity Therapy creates space for the body/mind/spirit to speak through felt sensation, memory, images, and emotion.  Polarity Therapy also incorporates an assessment of diet and energetic exercises to help the client maintain energy flow between sessions. Click here to view a video of a Polarity Therapy Session.  Though or work together may vary from what is seen the video will give you a sense of what Polairty Therapy is and how it can be performed.

Somatic Experiencing (SE)

is a newer modality that releases trauma stored in the nervous system; a gentle and profound system of sensation and mindful awareness, developed by renowned trauma specialist Peter Levine PhD. (Waking the Tiger and In an Unspoken Voice). 

How SE Works:
SE facilitates the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body, thus addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms. This is approached by gently guiding clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.

SE does not require the traumatized person to re-tell or re-live the traumatic event. Instead, it offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve—in a slow and supported way—the body’s instinctual fight, flight, freeze, and collapse responses. Individuals locked in anxiety or rage then relax into a growing sense of peace and safety. Those stuck in depression gradually find their feelings of hopelessness and numbness transformed into empowerment, triumph, and mastery. SE catalyzes corrective bodily experiences that contradict those of fear and helplessness. This resets the nervous system, restores inner balance, enhances resilience to stress, and increases people’s vitality, equanimity, and capacity to actively engage in life.  (Excerpted from www.traumahealing.org)

Massage /Touch Therapy

Addresses the physical body with either more traditional techniques releasing tension, pain, injury and stress or with intentional touch to help identify and gently release defensive holding patterns in the body.  Defensive holding patterns can arise as coping mechanisms in early life and can be the the origin of chronic pain and tension in the body.  Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Polarity based Structural Balancing and Myofascial Release are all used in the work as needed.
