Have you lost contact with your body/soul wisdom?

Integrate body, mind and soul with gentle hands-on healing in which physical contact is negotiated and respectful at all times. Our Soul Body, and our soul’s journey and purpose, are integral to bringing about permanent deep change and health on all levels. Deep core imprinting  can be accessed somatically and deeply heard, supporting integration and transformation of old beliefs, thoughts and attitudes, trauma and pre-verbal imprinting.

Reconnect with your intuition and instincts

Many of us are disconnected from ourselves due to trauma or ongoing stress that made it painful or difficult to stay present in our body. We can feel comfortable and relaxed in our body and understand its communications with ease. Sustainable, deep change is possible when the wisdom of our body-mind-soul connection is balanced and harnessed.

Emotions, stress and imprints stored in our Soul Body can manifest physically affecting our health and well-being. Making felt-sense of the energetic and emotional roots of physical symptoms catalyses shifts in our old patterns.

Karen Melton has the capacity and skill to work with deeply ingrained patterning like no one I have ever come across. I spent many years in therapy, but until I met Karen, I didn't have the understanding of the core of my issues and how to unwind them. Karen’s love, clarity, intuition, strength, intelligence and depth have truly impacted and changed my life.

Build New Internal Resources:

Body-Centered Healing focuses on what you are holding in your Soul Body ( physical and energy body) at your pace. Your Soul Body remembers everything that ever happened to you as far back as the womb. Working through the wisdom of your Soul Body supports your earliest pre-verbal core imprints to shift. This healing work continually supports the building of new and necessary internal resources, such as the following:

  • Having a choice about the lens through which you perceive life
  • Reconnecting with your instincts and intuition
  • Enhanced wellness and equilibrium from integration of formative early experiences
  • A coherent narrative
  • Understanding your attachment style for improved relationships
  • Improving and exploring your parenting triggers and challenges (see Parenting and Attachment Support for a more direct approach)
  • Feeling centered and able to shift out of an emotional trigger back to your center
  • Understanding tension and stress holding patterns
  • Developing a stress-reduction and resourcing practice
  • Learning how to have a settled nervous system and to return to equilibrium quickly when you are unsettled, triggered or anxious
  • Practicing good self-care

Your Soul Body is communicating with you constantly and can become your best friend. It is your feedback system about yourself, what’s going on around you and inside others. It’s also a phenomenal parenting resource that gives you constant feedback about your children underneath their behavior. Apart from healing and resolving trauma and integrating early imprints, this work teaches you how to listen to your most incredible resource and your home in this life, your Soul Body. Grow new internal resources and reach a deeper understanding of who you are and why you’re here.

Are you ready to come home to your self?

For the first time in my life, my nervous system is set at neutral and I am consciously and fully embodied. Everything is different. EVERYTHING. After a tenuous entry into the world as a newborn, and being raised by people who were deeply wounded, I am becoming who I was always meant to be. Thank you Karen. You are helping me and helping all the women, babies and families I will touch now, and in the future. Forever grateful ...
