About Erin Nota
For many years, as many of us are in our youth, I thought my body was bulletproof.
I pushed myself increasingly harder, pursuing my passion and dedication to martial arts. I fought competitively in many different styles, and while it proved a powerful outlet for emotional release and physical expression, it left my body with a few battle scars for my efforts.
I found Yoga as a discipline and as a counterweight to the pressure I had been asking my body to endure, and it sparked my journey to finding balance in all areas of my life.
My passion has now transformed into the pursuit of health, healing and finding joy in healthy and pain-free movement in daily life.
I took up Bowen (a soft tissue release method introduced to me through my mother, Beverley), and found this to be a powerful tool to find and explore imbalance in the body, heal these imbalances, and also a fantastic framework upon which to build other therapeutic healing techniques. Some of these that have worked for myself, and that I now practice include Gua Sha, Lymphatic drainage, Massage, Aromatherapy, Self-massage with therapy tools, movement and Yoga.
I believe that healing is a lifelong journey, and a very rewarding one. To feel good in one's body and mind asks us to look within to discover first and foremost what is requiring attention in oneself. Often times that will involve self inquiry. Self inquiry could be as simple as using the aid of therapy to help you to discover where in your body you are experiencing tension, or moving your body to meet the same end.
My intention is to equip you with the tools and understandings for which you can use to help and heal yourself. Therapy can then be an assistance and provide a faster route to recovery.
I endeavor to share with you ways to improve your healing, your health and a different approach to viewing the body, to help you to gain control of your health in mind and body, and journey to that place of curiosity and endless love for exploration of the self and the universe that is alive in each and every one of us.
