Merkaba Center for Healing, LLC
Integration of Mind. Body. Spirit.
The Tensegrity Medicine methodology incorporates the latest information from biotensegrity, connective tissue research, neuroscience, trauma-informed care, systems theory, and psychoneuroimmunology.
It emphasizes a comprehensive body-mind assessment as a basis for treatment and measurable objective goals.
The lens of viewing and treatment is three-dimensional and holistic, involving the whole person to get to the root causes of global tension patterns and dysfunction.
Tensegrity Medicine assesses the three-dimensional balance of the human body through orthopedic, postural, and biotensegral assessments. Utilizes targeted and specific light touch techniques that are incorporated based on a biotensegrity framework. Movement and lifestyle management training is reinforced with dialoguing around beliefs, emotions, perceptions which affect the physical structure.
Bowenwork® is a system of touch that initiates a series of responses by stimulating the human body's nervous, musculoskeletal, fascial, and energetic systems.
Practitioners perform small stimulations, called "moves" on specific body points, interspersed with rest periods. The Bowenwork® moves stimulate mechanoreceptors (nerve endings) that overlie both muscles and acupoints. The body's response to this stimulation, which begins during rest periods, includes balancing the autonomic nervous system and changes in the musculoskeletal system in the direction of increased symmetry. These effects, in turn, remove blockages to the free flow of energy in the body. From the point of view of complementary health care, when the body's nervous and energetic systems are in balance, its physical, emotional, and mental functions can return to a healthy state.

Mind/Body Bowen uses Bowen as a means of processing in a structured, safe, quiet, supportive atmosphere, helping the client, whether child or adult, connect to the sensations in the body. Touch can bring up a memory, bringing up a repressed emotion; repressed emotions can often be detected under body aches and pains. Only when our tensions are finally released can a state of well-being and relaxation follow. What we don't let ourselves feel or express becomes stuck and causes muscular tension rather like body armor, which can become chronic, even permanent over the years.
'Repressed emotions constantly strive to come to consciousness- that is, escape from the unconscious and become overt and concisely manifest.' John Sarno' The Mind-Body Prescription'
Intuitive Distance Work
Intuitive distance work includes integrative spiritual enrichment. A combination of traditional Usui/Tibetan Reiki, Universal Shamanism, sound and crystal healing, resonance frequencies, Chakra balancing, aromatherapy, mind/body reconnection, emotional release, channel work, Bowenwork, dialogue around core belief patterns, and homework exercises that will continue supporting your healing journey.
These sessions are unique and guided by source and spirit to allow one-of-a-kind, personalized therapeutic sessions, including an extended plan of care of either a 7, 14, or 30-day protocol.
Animals respond well to Bowen and energy work! If your animal is in pain of any kind, having gut issues, allergies and anxiety, etc. booking an in-person or long distant session can assist their healing process.

Listen to my Tensegrity Medicine colleague Liz McNulty in this podcast with the wonderful Joanne Avison
This podcast helps explain all things Tensegrity Medicine, fascia, what could be happening in the interstitial spaces, resonant fields, and how showing up in our authentic, higher selves as practitioners can shift a session with our clients. Allowing space to unfold while witnessing during the healing process allows the client's body to unwind uniquely. Liz speaks to this beautifully!
