BODY, MIND, WELLNESS
Complex Physical Conditions
This is the best relaxation that I get each week. Alecia puts me in the deepest, most restorative place and I leave feeling completely refreshed and ready to take on everything that I need to do. There is no doubt that she has an incredible gift for knowing how to help her clients find relief that seems to help my physical pain and discomfort, which in turn, helps my mental and emotional spirits as well!
In my work with Alecia I have felt that each session leaves me changed and feeling better. It is hard to put into words the benefits of working with her. No matter how tense or painful my body feels before a session, I can always sense relief afterward. Sometimes it is on a very subtle level and, as she says, the work may take a day or more to allow the body to feel any changes. It seems the most natural and integrated balance of physical and overall well-being that I experience. Alecia’s work makes it seem “easy” to feel “ease” in my body. We are so fortunate that she is here in Virginia Beach!
Alecia is an amazing bodyworker, far beyond what I can say in words. She instantly puts you at ease, no matter how stressful and frustrated your week has been. You just know that she cares and that makes all the difference. Her compassion and expertise are evident from the minute you speak to her or walk into her office. She not only works with the areas of the body that hold tension or discomfort, but she also works with the positive, strong areas of the body, bringing them both together in the most interesting manner. I found her approach quite different than many professionals who focus only on what is “wrong”. Somehow, this makes all the difference when we work together. My body relaxes, my mind feels at ease and my spirit can rest. It is so balancing!
The sudden death of a loved one left me at a point in my life where I found myself inconsolable in grief and severe physical distress. Through Alecia’s work, I was able to find areas of my body that were comfortable instead of painful or grief-stricken. I felt surprisingly more comfortable and found myself in a significantly healthier state of being. Although I still had feelings of sadness, I was no longer in that deep, debilitating feeling that I was in prior to my work with Alecia. The resulting comfort to my mind and spirit was something I had never experienced or thought possible in conjunction with bodywork. Who could have known that acupressure and her trauma-informed techniques could relieve so much physical distress? Both the physiological and beyond-physiological impact was profound. I live and enjoy life differently as a result. Alecia's skills are fantastic and her desire to be of service unequalled. I highly recommend her talents to everyone I know who is interested in feeling Whole."
Alecia, I am so grateful for the work that you have done with me. It has really helped me to see the connection between pain and my emotions. Most of all it has given me a way to deal with it. I will be using this technique of moving the loving energy into areas of pain in my meditations. The session was most helpful and enlightening. After the session my pain on my right side disappeared! It was amazing to me how this work not only healed this area of my body but helped me to deal with the emotional and spiritual causes. I am grateful for the healing and insights into my life.
After many years of talk therapy to recover from an abusive childhood, my progress had stagnated and I felt unable to get to the heart of the emotions that I sensed needed to be expressed. Working with Alecia almost immediately allowed me to begin releasing these emotions and even enhanced my regular therapy sessions. My perspective and outlook changed rapidly from feeling helpless, hopeless and discouraged to feeling empowered and resilient. This kind of work was a remarkable experience and proved to be the missing piece that allowed me to complete my healing. Alecia is the most truly compassionate and committed person to be doing this work. I honestly don’t think anyone in my lifetime has been as genuinely concerned with my well being. While I believe wholeheartedly in the technology, it is Alecia the person that had made it so easy for me to be successful. This is coming from a guy that has had huge difficulties with intimacy and trust. I trust her completely, which allowed me to ‘get there’ much, much easier. I will be eternally grateful to Alecia for all her support.”
