“I felt enormously better after my session with you. Quite a change after unremitting discomfort for a month.”
– K.S. client
Any level of discomfort from mild to intense, from acute to chronic, is our body’s way of saying, “Stop. Something’s not right here. Pay attention. Do something differently.”
Sara invites you to do something differently by acknowledging the possibility of options as well as the discomfort.
“Many thanks for all you have done to help me shake hands with my Self.”

Emotions arise from our biochemistry, express themselves through the body, and affect and shape the body. The opposite is also true: the body’s shape and physiology affect emotions. So when we explore emotions via the body–and conversely, the body through emotions and thoughts–it becomes possible to both free tensions and increase your range of emotional response.
“I am doing so much better, which is amazing because the problem’s been going on for 1.5 years [since a miscarriage]… I’m very, very happy with how I feel now.”

Women’s bodies conceive, grow, and deliver babies. To do this requires a strong and balanced pelvic system: uterine muscle itself, other pelvic organs and muscles, connective tissue, including the many ligaments that secure the uterus to the pelvis’ bony structures and the bones to each other.
