Movement Therapy

By Mina Arakawa

I'm currently studying in a 2-year program in movement therapy and offering sessions to Gravity sangha members at a sliding scale. 

Movement therapy awakens the body and helps you see the connection between the physical and emotional holding patterns, and unravel those patterns. It provides a way into the body, another way to study the self, and is a good complement to the meditation practice and studies we do at Gravity. I'm drawn to the practice because it honours our agency to heal and take care of ourselves. You may want to give it a try if the following are your concerns:

  • reducing and managing pain, stiffness and tension
  • building strength and flexibility
  • improving posture
  • increasing ease and freedom of movement
  • recovery from injury, injury prevention
  • reducing stress
  • managing auto-immune and neurological conditions

The beauty of this practice is that it is available to people of all levels of mobility and experience. All you need is an open curiosity to learn about the body, and a desire for increased wellness and ease.

Price for 1-hr session: $35-60 (sliding scale) 

Location: 283 Spadina Ave. 34d Fl. (home visit may be available depending on location)
